Ashland Art Center Tours
 
Ashland Art Center has made many new upgrades to our gallery, studios and classroom space. We are excited to share these changes with our community and are now offering monthly tours to learn about our artists, classes and new programs.
These tours will be offered on the second Saturday of every month at 11:00 am and 12:00 pm. We hope you will stop by, there is so much to see... new artwork on display from several of our world-class artists, including a one-of-a-kind interactive installation. Be sure to check out our recently remodeled print and ceramics area too. Chances are there will be a batch of custom ceramic pieces waiting to be fired up in one of our two brand new kilns. So stop by soon and experience "All Things Art." The next tour will be November 10th.

Join us for an evening of art, music and wine. Meet our studio and featured artists,
enjoy our premier gallery featuring local art.
Featured Photographer:
Bobbi Murphy
Show: Yosemite: 20 years later
 
 
My photographic trip to Yosemite was truly bittersweet. Yosemite holds wonderful memories for me - of autumn walks in golden meadows and full moon nights along the Merced River listening to great horned owls call to their families on cold evenings. Tramping through spring meadows flooded with snow runoff; riotous with wild flowers. 
 
John Muir walked here and created America’s second great National Park. 
 
There is no denying the impact of climate change on the park: drought, fire, pine beetles have killed 129 million trees in California and Yosemite has not been spared. It is heartbreaking to see and experience while remembering how magnificent it was just a few short years ago. But the tourists come in crowds greater than ever. 
 
Despite all that we have done, it is still a glorious, spectaular place that makes a heart sing, even in the midst of destruction and devastation. We are loving it too much and yet, somehow not enough.  
 

Featured Studio Artist
Susanne Petermann
Show: Inspired by Rumi

Each piece is an original collage created in response to a poem by Rumi, an 12th century Persian poet.  
Featured Main Gallery Artist
Jo Ann Manzone
Show: Reinvent
Jo Ann is a natural dyer, botanical printer and felt artist. Reinvent and refresh is the theme for her December Show. A vest becomes a bag. A bag becomes a pair of fingerless mitts, a dress becomes a vest. Scraps of fabric sewn together becomes a new garment.
First Friday Musical Guest:
Jennifer De Puglia
 
Gospel singer, Jennifer De Puglia is our First Friday Musical guest. She is the Vocal Director of the Music Hall Series at the Craterian Theater at the Collier Center for Performing Arts. She has performed at OSF and as a vocalist with the Bishop Mayfield Band.
"I have always, since time immemorial, been consumed with all things music. Every style, every nuance. As a little girl I felt as if my soul were a tuning fork and every time something was played or sung my heart would resound with the melodies wafting through my world."
