Vadim Bora Retrospective Catalog available at the Asheville Art Museum Store

The late NC artist Vadim Bora is celebrated in a new Collector's Book (catalog) now available at the Asheville Art Museum's store ( a great place for last minute Christmas shopping). The retrospective catalog was compiled from the recent Warren Wilson College exhibit,  “Vadim Bora - A Visual Legacy of Expressive Freedom: From Initial Spark to Final Form”.

The catalog includes 50 fully illustrated pages plus accompanying text by his wife and curator of the exhibit, Constance Richards (Bora) and co-curator, Professor Dusty Benedict of Warren Wilson College. 
Bora  moved to Asheville NC in 1993 and made significant contributions to the local art scene including “Cat Walk” for the Asheville Urban Trail, “On the Mend” (a 10-piece life-sized figurative sculpture) for Mission Hospital’s Reuters Children’s Outpatient Center and “Cornelia and Cedric”,  a bronze sculpture of Cornelia Vanderbilt and the Vanderbilt family dog Cedric at Biltmore’s Antler Hill Village visitor area.
