The artists at Ashland Art Works were very busy in January, painting, cleaning, moving, making our galleries fresh again! We have several fun events happening during the month of February.
Feb. 2nd – 16th – Special Exhibit from Ashland High School
In addition to new works by all of our gallery artists, we are happy to host a selected exhibit of art from Ashland High School’s chapter of the
National Art Honor Society (NAHS).
The NAHS is comprised of students who are passionate about the fine arts. It is a student run organization that is advised by the Ashland High School art teach Mr. Malcomb. This gallery showing is organized by the chapter officer Sierrah Kelly and supported by her co-president Indigo Pinder and secretary Logan Knouse. The show will illustrate the specific and unique talents of each member of NAHS. Each work was selected by the artist to represent their best work from the academic year. This showing is meant to present each student’s individual talents while also presenting the artistry of Ashland’s new generation.
Feb. 16th – 29th – An Exhibit Celebrating Black History Month
We are partnering with several local artists to celebrate the richness of African American art. The artwork represents the varied visions of these artists. The organizer, Mmmingpha, is a local musician, artist and activist, helping to build community through benevolence and compassion.
Feb. 28th & 29th. – Dream Weaver Mixed Media Workshop
Please join Roxanne Evans Stout and Ashland Art Works for Dream Weaver, a mixed media art workshop that is sure to get your creative juices flowing! We will take over part of the Thrown Stone Gallery at Ashland Art Works, which overlooks Ashland Creek. A beautiful setting sure to stimulate our imagination as we create an artist book that is inspired by our hopes and dreams for the New Year. There are just a few spots available.
