Merging Art & Music, Come see it happen live

Ashland Deer

How does an artist get from the blank canvas to a finished painting?

Four Art & Soul gallery artists, Jenay Elder, Bruce Barnes, Linda Boutacoff and Eve Margo Withrow paint and answer questions about their work and process while Peter Stone provides a soothing and inspirational background of live music like what you’d hear during a gentle yoga class.
