“Beyond the Clouds” – Featuring Art by Tonya Bloomer at Ashland Pony Espresso, September 7th, 2018
Artists and art appreciators, join us at the Ashland Pony Espresso/Washington Federal Bank for First Friday Art Walk, September 7th, from 5pm-8pm. Tonya Bloomer’s whimsically illustrative art is a joyous invitation to step outside our everyday expectations into a world of surprise, possibilities, and fun. It’s time to get inspired, so grab a cup of coffee or a meal, meet the artist, and enjoy a fun and relaxing evening of looking at art and talking with other creatives.
About this month’s featured artist:
I studied art at the Ashland Academy of Art in 2008-2010. When I’m not capturing creativity and transposing it onto paper, I work as a therapist for Options for Southern Oregon. My motivation for painting comes from an idea that our world is full of stories and color that we fail to ponder. I am drawn to stories and pictures that open doors to another world.
Art is a tremendous outlet for me, not just for stress; but for creativity. I see that life is bigger and greater than what we are actually experiencing, we do not see the whole adventure. I love painting pictures that tell a more colorful and adventurous story. Paintings and stories are meant to entice the viewer to imagine a world with more color, intertwining that color into everyday life. My inspiration comes from a desire to captivate viewers with a world that promises an adventurous starting point for their own story.
