The Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League celebrates its 50th anniversary with the first members' art show of 2017, entitled “Moonlight Becomes You,” from Friday, Feb. 10 to Sunday, May 7 at the Red House Gallery.

The show will lure gallery visitors to the “world after dark,” from the oceans to the mountains, inside and outside (life after dark takes on a particular look and feel). The artists participating in this show will interpret the theme using a variety of media.

Moonlight and mood go together, according to curator Jack Williams. Instances of mystery, stealth, stolen moments and intrigue in a spooky gothic mansion are all intensified by the shadows that moonlight allows. The participating artists invite you to come and have your emotions tantalized. A separate exhibit will showcase the work of 15 new league members.

An artists reception will be 5-7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10 at the Red House Gallery, 310 W. State St., next to the historic Monte Vista Hotel. The Swannanoa Valley Fine Arts League has provided a venue for art and artists in the Valley since 1967. The Red House provides artist studios and ongoing workshops.
