Ashland Art Works is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 cooperative of artists, art galleries and studios. AAW encourages the creative productivity of its artists with the intention of contributing new works for the gallery and of sharing with the community.
AAW provides numerous opportunities for locals and visiting groups to learn about and experience art. For example, people of all ages attend First Friday, a free monthly event to meet artists, learn about art techniques, watch demonstrations, and visit studios.
AAW also offers tours and educational opportunities in the form of workshops, such as mask making, silk dying, or expanding creativity. AAW artists have offered art experiences in elementary, high school, and university classrooms, plus art lectures at the gallery.

AAW also hosted a two day workshop with our own gallery artist, Roxanne Evans Stout in the lead. It was a huge success and great fun for all, learning techniques in mixed media art.
Artworks also welcomed our local Riding Beyond group, in recognition of Breast Cancer awareness Month. We all got to participate in a group weaving – Weave a Tapestry of Wishes. For more information: http://ridingbeyond.org/
