Like every other gallery and arts center, Revolve in Asheville has been closed to the public throughout the quarantine. And like many artists in these times, Molly Sawyer has holed up in her River Arts District studio, thinking, creating, creating without thinking.
A couple weeks ago, Sawyer asked Revolve director Colby Caldwell if she could use his space for a little while.
“My studio is very small and dark and, really, I was just moving things in here to photograph and work things out and finish things,” Sawyer said.
Sawyer ended up with an unplanned pop-up exhibition, the region’s first since everything shut down for the pandemic. It runs for a week and is open to the public—just three mask-wearing people at a time, by appointment, over limited gallery hours.
