Rocks and Poetry, Painting and Sculpture by Michael Gibson and Elin Babcock
This month Ashland Artwork features new mediums and creative combinations by two talented artists.
Michael Gibson’s Art on Rocks resulted from a month long drive to Alaska and back, where he started sketching on rocks he had collected along the way.
“Someone suggested I do ‘Tudor’ subject matter for Ashland
Shakespeare lovers and I was possessed,” says Michael.
These rock sketches make great paper weights or keepsakes.
In Art, Poetry and Thee, Elin Babcock expresses her creativity using painting and sculpting to parallel her poetry. For Elin, Creativity comes in many ways. “If I suspend the critic and judge in my head, I am free to explore the creative world however it comes.
Elin will read her poems during the First Friday Art Walk.
