Mel Prest: The Golden Hour
Currently featured at the Schneider Museum of Art are paintings by Mel Prest. Inspired by nature, which is always changing, Mel observes the magic of fleeting color phenomena like mirages, rainbows, and the movement of the sky and ocean.

Join us for the 9th Annual Ashland Open Studio Tour!

On Saturday and Sunday, October 15 and 16 from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., visual artists based in Ashland, Talent, and Phoenix will open their workspaces to the public to show off their creative realms. Revealing some incredible and sometimes shocking surprises, this is a place where they love to work. Even just one visitor’s interest and curiosity can spark stimulation and new ideas. 


“We are so excited to offer artists the opportunity to participate in Ashland Open Studio Tour again. In 2020, planning anything was deemed as too hazardous and in 2021, we put together a temporary solution at Ashland Art Works where artists could show their studio work under tents for a day. This year will be unique in that some studios will be indoors, some outdoors, and some both in an effort to honor each artist’s safety and comfortability,” said Bruce Bayard, AGA Board Secretary. “Especially after coming through the pandemic, many artists lost gallery representation after permanent closures. Direct sales that take place during Ashland Open Studio Tour help a lot while artists continue to seek new outlets.”
