Painter Caren Shele, Metal Worker and Painter Randall Grealish, and Photographers Joeseph Linaschke and Dan Elster
Caren Shele is a local painter who lives in Ashland with her partner and their new daughter. Having recently re-located from New Orleans her paintings are inspired by the music and culture that she lived in and loved for years. Using the medium of acrylic on canvas her current collection is soft and powerful, her delicate line work paired with vibrant colors and fluid brush strokes gives the impression that her paintings are dancing. Her process with painting is much like the composition of a song, evoking movement and depth through complex layering and multi-faceted subject matter. Caren’s appreciation of the feminine form as well as song and dance has greatly influenced this collection resulting in the ultimate expression of the many aspects of herself as well as her muses. Each painting represents a feeling, a moment, an identity that she has experienced at one point in her life making this collection a beautifully raw reflection of the deeply intimate human experience.
Randall Grealish is a painter and metal worker. His pieces exude a simple, modern elegance as geomentric angles meet the fluidity of absract concepts. His art is guided by his instincts, his curious nature & a sense of discovery, as well as great music which fuels the energy and work flow of each new piece that is created. His goal within his artwork is not perfection but rather to honestly represent the efforts & the outcome that each new creation presents.
