For our March exhibit, Drawing Beauty, we will feature the works of three painters, each with an expressly different vision of beauty: Shan Lollis, Kiri Bolles and Kendra Farber. Gallery artist Shan Lollis uses bold color and a gestural quality to her paintings that portray a certain “joie de vivre” to the objects, people and scenes she paints. Ashland High School students and budding artists, Kiri Bolles and Kendra Farber will be featured in our gallery as part of the Ashland Gallery Association Student Art Show.

A gift is something given in kindness without expectation of return. It is also used to speak of the talent and vision bestowed upon artists. Many of us wonder at the source of artists’ imagination and capacity to make real those ideas. This is “The Gift” our artists will be kindly sharing with you. This is an ideal opportunity for you to find beautifully crafted, thoughtful, one of a kind gifts this season while supporting the creativity and craftsmanship in your community. Shan Lollis, Wilma Wyss, Patti Wessman, Penelope Dews, Sara Lovelady, Zoe West & Jubilation Press will be among the artists featured. Meet the artists at the Artists’ Reception, held during First Friday Art Walk on December 7th from 5~8 p.m. Enjoy a holiday tinged evening with other art lovers. Mulled wine and light refreshments will be provided along with music by David Elan Kelley.
