New Artist at Asheville Eye

Posted on

Asheville based artist Tebbe Davis is exhibiting some of his contemporary landscapes at our 8 Medical Park Drive office “Eye on the Arts” gallery.

“My process is to create work that reflects the journey, the experience and the expression of life; without judgement, calculation or preconception” he reflects on his work.  “I attempt to be alert to what is happening, what is evolving on the surface while making the painting, allowing the moment to dictate where the work is going.  Mine is an Expressive Process Art, ” he said.

We hope you’ll enjoy this new installation.  To see more of Tebbe’s work, go to
