Lost Landscapes of Pennsylvania and North Carolina by Frances Panovec Berger
Frances Panovec Berger was born and raised on an apple farm outside of Easton, Pennsylvania in 1919. A self-taught artist, she is the youngest of 11 children. Frances worked at Benny & Smith, which is now owned by Crayola, in the crayon factory. In 1972, she and her husband, "Guffy," bought a farm in the Sandy Mush Community of North Carolina where they planned to retire. As a folk artist, she surrounded herself with art, painting floral patterns on her household furniture, braiding rugs, and making decorative tapestries from yarn and fabric. She paints in oil, acrylic, and water colors, but finds acrylic to be her favorite medium. Her paintings are of her family home and the surrounding community in Pennsylvania and her current farm in Sandy Mush. The Panovec homestead was sold to developers and turned into an expansive housing development. These scenes from America are rapidly disappearing as development encroaches on our farmlands. On display June-July 2007.

Urban Youth: Our Lives, Our Stories by Asheville Middle School Students
O16 photographs taken by eight Asheville Middle School students. UNC Asheville senior Philip Kleisler, site director for YMCA Community Outreach, helped these budding local artists learn to see Asheville with new eyes. During the summer months, students in this program spend the day with program leaders, hiking in the woods, working on team building skills, and discovering their artistic talents. In June, eight Asheville Middle School students in the program were given cameras to take home for two weeks. After a few photography lessons from professional photographer Jason Briscoe, the students were charged with snapping shots of the people, places, and things that meant the most to them. On display July 2007.
