Cheri Bohn

Cheri Bohn's art -  A little whimsy, something found, something made - light hearted - rooted  yet alive - winged subliminal creatures springing from the earth - flora and fauna combined - possible humanity 

Creating new work has been a priority  at the Underground since the August sneak preview.
We are all committed to providing a first class fine art experience.

Jan Gosnell
Gosnell, always the shaman, specializes in shifting the point of view.
Jan can be depended on to take a seriously un-serious view of himself as an artist. 
Look for the paintbrush to mysteriously appear and disappear.

Mike Haley and Susy Siegele

Mike Haley and Susy Siegele make hieroglyphs in porcelain cool earth - a union of classical and contemporary design. Fish swim around the column in front of the Fayetteville Underground, luring us in. 

The fish are going peopleing.

A well kept secret portraying beauty in action:

Welcome to two of our newest artists!

Janis Ward 
makes watercolorful light images lyrical in nature. Watch Out! There may be a story here.
 Mama, Your Babies are Crying

David Bachman – polished icons – something a little fishy – oceanic – I can almost hear Jimmy Buffet playing softly in the background

In the past couple of weeks, 101 West Mountain Street has evolved to a striking gold and black motif, if not shouting, then at least stating succinctly that something new is happening here. What mysteries await inside?

I've been watching Doug Randall painting the inside, then the outside of the building, but what is really intriguing is when he stands in front of his canvas, painting the light in the forest. I've watched a painting develop to completion, I thought, only to come back the next day and find that the previously snowy scene has developed a forest fire of reds and oranges. Later Doug manages to tame the work back to softly autumnal. The layers of paint have built a scene that is nature but also more than nature. It is nature imagined or remembered, bold and soft. Watch out! When passing a Randall painting in the narrow hallway, I almost fell into it.

And here's another mystery . . .

William Mayes Flanagan

Surely this man has leprechauns or gnomes in his ancestry. 
A Building, A Bird and the moon.  like a Basho poem.

Did somebody say "bird"?

The 20 + artist members of the Fayetteville Underground  would like to thank our community for the incredible wave of support we have received from every direction. The list of supporting members has been growing daily

Last Friday night, August 17th, a wave of sound came to the Underground in the form of great local musicians. The prospect of live music surrounded by art is an exciting new development.
