Judith Whitman-Small – Atmospheric Landscape Oil Paintings


From First Friday until the end of May we are happy to be showing off some ethereal and lovely landscape paintings by Judith Whitman-Small. Judith’s paintings are inspired by her years of living on Maui, though she is now an Ashland resident. She paints with oil on linen and canvas and her brush marks and colors create beautiful environments that are easy to get happily lost in. Come down during First Friday to see them, check out our newly renovated gallery and design space, and enjoy some snacks!

It’s a reflection on my experiences with mental health, race, gender roles and child-rearing, and how they’ve been influenced by my family (split between Republic, Washington and Charleston, South Carolina). Through this work I have realized that I am not “two halves” of one thing, but one whole “something else”.

Can I Love The Clouds Too

Art photographer John Kirk’s new show “My Avian Friends” opens First Friday, April 5th at the Photographers’ Gallery in the Ashland Art Center, 357 E. Main, Ashland. Kirk views birds as flying works of art and his unique photographic style places them in their wild landscapes and domestic settings.

Please welcome David Nau for the months of April and May

David Nau I paint the vibrations of nature.  All matter vibrates at a particular frequency, that frequency can be influenced by its surroundings.  Water to ice, water to steam.  When different gemstones are placed together they form a symphony of vibrations. Like a composer writes sheet music, I paint the symphony with genuine gemstone and organic watercolor pigments.
