Asheboro, NC - The Randolph Arts Guild’s January exhibition will culminate with a Lunch & Learn with artist Ed Rich. The exhibition of Ed’s work is currently being featured in the Randolph Arts Guild’s Sara Smith Self Gallery located at 123 Sunset Ave. in downtown Asheboro. The Lunch and Learn event will be held in the Gallery space at noon on Tuesday, January 27th.  The event is free and open to the public.  No registration is required.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag lunch. 

Ed Rich is a life-long resident of Asheboro and Randolph County.  He and his wife Ginny, own and operate Total Fitness and the Heritage Diner and American Classic Motorcycle Museum on Hwy 64 west of Asheboro.  Ed is essentially a self-taught artist.  He credits Dwight Holland who taught as what was then Park Street School for giving him direction and inspiration.  According to Ed, “Dwight stressed the importance of art in everyday life and that has been a part of every piece of work I do. 

Ed’s love for the history and people of Randolph County, as well as his love for motorcycles is clearly evident in his work.  His paintings equally examine life’s ups and downs, clearly capturing the emotion of fleeting moments.  His diversity of subject matter coupled with his varying explorative approach makes for exhibition unlike any exhibited at the Guild in recent history. 

The Randolph Arts Guild is open Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm and Saturday from 10am - 2pm.  For more information please call 336-629-0399.
