New Paintings & Ceramics by Amy H R Donahue, Dan Michael, Kathleen Walsh, & Fonda Cody

On exhibit May 7- June 27

Ashland First Thursday Wine & Art Pairing

 Thursday, June 4th, from 5:30-8:00 PM

Gallery Flux has teamed up with James River Cellars to bring you the perfect art and wine pairing. Both art and wine can engage multiple senses all at once. Discover what happens when you “sip and see”, creating a unique way to experience fine art.

The artists in this show find inspiration “close to home” and can be identified by their own unique style. These plein air artists concentrated their work for this exhibition on the beauty of a landscape painting. In the body of work, each artist captures an element in nature and emphasizes that element as the subject and focus.

Dan Michael | Pastel Painter

Dan’s work always includes a ribbon of light. The artist explains, “These arrangements of pastel marks go beyond a mechanical process, they are orchestrated to try and capture the elusive qualities of light and atmosphere that display the extraordinary characteristics of common subject matter”.

Kathleen Walsh | Oil Plein Air Painter

Kathleen is inspired by nature. She seems ‘at home’ when venturing out to capture a landscape. “Landscape is my guide. Nature the muse.  Just being outdoors awakens the senses; melds surprise, consideration and wonder.”

Amy H R Donahue | Oil Plein Air Painter

Amy is praised for the attention to detail in her work. She makes a small painting feel large! “Everywhere I travel scenes beg to be painted. Light and vivid color captivate me.”

Fonda Cody | Ceramic Artist 

Fonda’s work has a natural appearance on the surface, including layering of rustic earth tones. “This process of discovery fuels my creativity in working with each media as I develop an awareness of their possibilities and limitations.”
