Leicester artist Ashley Wolff shows new paintings at BAG
The Brandon Artists Guild (which we all know as the BAG) will hold an opening this Friday for a show of new paintings by Leicester artist Ashley Wolff. The exhibit, “Reinventing the View,” runs Aug. 31 through Nov. 5. The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception Friday, Aug. 31 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Ashley Wolff, who grew up in Addison County, has built a devoted following with her colorful watercolors, gouache paintings and children’s book illustrations. The vibrant, celebratory pieces she has selected for “Reinventing the View” stem from a more personal source.
“I chose the title, ‘Reinventing the View’ to mark being back in my home state, but without either parent,” Wolff explains. “After 34 years in California I returned to live close to my mother. The lush bouquets of flowers painted in gouache are an outpouring of emotion following Mom’s death in May. She loved saturated color and anything purple.”
The other half of the show includes transparent watercolors.
“It’s a medium I first learned and practiced with my father, who died 30 years ago,” Wolff says. “So it appears, without conscious planning, that I’m honoring both parents with work they would have loved if they could be here.”
“Reinventing the Landscape” is part of Vermont Arts 2018 — a yearlong celebration highlighting arts events across the state, sponsored by the Vermont Arts Council.
The BAG, at 7 Center St. in Brandon, is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Need more information — call 802-247-4956.
