Art & Soul Gallery Featured Artist for October – First Friday Event, October 6th, 5-8PM

Join Kat von Cupcake and me during Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk for a celebration of the animals at the “Love Rhymes with Everything” Art Show on October 6th from 5 – 8PM!

 

This show features a mix of original paintings & framed prints paired with poetry by Kat von Cupcake, written from the animal’s perspective – as well as our book with the same title, published by local boutique publisher, Ashland Creek Press.

 

The opening reception includes select poetry readings and discussion about the animals behind the artwork at 6:30PM. Kat and I will also be available to personalize books – which would make the perfect holiday gift for the animal lover in your family!  And, of course, there will be wine and snacks too.

 

100% of sales proceeds from this show will be donated to Sanctuary One, a non-profit care farm & animal sanctuary in Jacksonville, OR. Sanctuary One t-shirts and sweatshirts will also be available for purchase during First Friday.

 

This show runs through October 29th if you are unable to make it in for First Friday.

Persimmons by Sarah F Burns
Becoming a Mother/Losing a Mother

New work by Megan Headley and Sarah F. Burns

Megan, mother of a young child, explores the transformation and sacrifice involved in procreation using the inspiration of the octopus.

Sarah lost her mother suddenly in September 2016 and she journals her grief and memories through paintings.

They both embrace the epic and the mundane, the beauty and the hurt in these biggest of life’s transitions that all of us have experienced, or will experience.
