Ashland Natural Medicine “Africa, Fashion & Photography”, featuring Jennifer Jensen

ANM Gallery of Contemporary Art is thrilled to host local Ashland artist, Jennifer Jensen’s newest works of art titled: Africa, Fashion & Photography

This exceptional show is a beautiful combination of creative expression and inspiration from her travels to Selous Game Reserve, in South West Tanzania where she photographed wildlife in the bush and then onto Zanzibar where Jensen purchased African fabrics to bring home and design her clothing.

Line, color, shape and texture are just some of the strong art elements that weave together her clothing design choices and carefully selected compositions in each safari image. The care and attention to detail in creating each clothing and photograph clearly makes a statement of her devotion and passion to her crafts.

Each dress, each skirt each jacket, are wearable individual art pieces that are truly

Ashland Gallery Association – March Spotlight Exhibits Ashland Art Center Upstairs Featured Artists: Susanne Petermann & Darlene Southworth Techno-color

With watercolor and collage, Susanne Petermann and Darlene Southworth create landscapes not visible to the unaided eye: parts hidden inside machines and computers, interiors of plants and animals, and outer space. Thus the images appear abstract though they are actually representational

Featured Photographer: Julie Bonney Delicate Beauty

Julie Bonney is a widely traveled local photographer who will be sharing a selection from her recent work, “Delicate Beauty” during March. Favorite photography subjects for many are flowers. They speak the language of the heart touching us in ways that open us to the natural world. However, the challenge is to showcase them in ways that are less common and create a desire in the viewer to stop and take them in. Photography workshops can be a source of inspiration when things feel
