Flood Gallery Fine Art Center

Flood Mission

Flood Fine Art Center is a non-profit contemporary art institution dedicated to advancing the careers of emerging and mid career artists, as well as educating the public and furthering the understanding of contemporary art and its importance within the community and beyond. We aim to provide a stimulating environment for artists so that they will successively enlighten, challenge, inspire, and elevate awareness for the necessity of art in contemporary culture.

Flood Fine Art Center seeks to be a vital cultural resource for Asheville through providing funding and space for innovative local and national artists as well as curators who stretch boundaries in all media. Through our extensive exhibition schedule, residency program, educational activities, presentations and publications we aim to serve a diverse audience that will in turn enhance quality of life and provide opportunities and experiences that would otherwise be unavailable.

Patrick Glover, Jeremy Russell and Barbara Schreiber toy with lies, legacies, identity marketing, unrealities, commodification, cultural contradictions, unintended consequences and other byproducts of contemporary life... Patrick Glover received a BFA from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City in 1987. He has worked as a freelance decorative painter, muralist and illustrator in both New York City and Charlotte NC, while continuing to pursue his interests in fine art. Patrick's work has been included in group and solo shows in commercial and alternative galleries in New York City, Seattle, WA, Chapel Hill and Charlotte, NC. In 2006, Patrick was selected from over 50 juried finalists for a New York City MTA Arts for Transit project.

For more than two decades, Barbara Schreiber has explored dystopia through intimate paintings and drawings that appear light-hearted at first glance but often have disturbing undertones. Schreiber has exhibited her work at PS 1, the High Museum of Art, Weatherspoon Art Museum, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, the Sorbonne and numerous other museums and galleries in the U.S. and Europe. She was a 2006-07 affiliate artist-in-residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art. Schreiber was born in Baltimore, Maryland, attended the Atlanta College of Art and graduated magna cum laude from the Maryland Institute, College of Art. An Atlanta resident from 1977 to 2004, she now lives in Charlotte.
