Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

Rolinda Stotts is the creator of an art form known as "Bella Rotta," meaning Beautifully Imperfect, in Italian. Rolinda uses a ten-step, labor-intensive process to achieve the worn and shattered look of her art. Inspired by her love for family, nature and Italy, each piece is deeply connected to Rolinda and no two pieces are alike. Come see Rolinda as we unveil her newest collection “Monet’s Garden” on June 26th and 27th.

Michael Flohr Show July 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2020

Winter Art Show Michael Flohr
Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

Michael Flohr is an abstract expressionist who effortlessly captures the movement and energy of his nightlife and cityscapes. Flohr's brushstroke technique combined with his masterful use of light creates a sense of "déjà vu" for the outsider looking in. His interpretation of light and ability to convey multiple senses in his paintings is what has made his work so desirable. Join us as we host Michael Flohr on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th!
As a bonus, we will be hosting a whiskey tasting!

Alexander Volkov Show Friday, July 17th and Saturday, July 18th, 2020

Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

The main theme of his life-long exploration has not only been the elusive beauty of this fleeting world, but the barely perceptible moments of unfinished conversations, departures, and ever-present change. His paintings become that silent part to a conversation which we all need so much.
Merging unique vision, atmosphere and precision, Alexander's paintings evoke powerful emotions that create harmony throughout this latest exhibit. Join us as Alexander unveils his newest collection Striking Visions of America.

Mackenzie Thorpe Show Friday, July 24th and Saturday, July 25th, 2020

Event Time: 12pm-5pm

Mackenzie returns to Marcus Ashley Galleries in July to unveil a new collection of pastels inspired by his new favorite muse; Lake Tahoe. The unique and majestic surroundings of the lake have stirred his soul to create an unprecedented collection of work based specifically on his travels to Tahoe. The unmistakable imagery of pine trees, mountains, lake, love and sunshine have infused Mackenzie with hope and joy to paint the very best we have to offer as humanity. We look forward to seeing you at the show to share this truly inspired collection of artwork on July 24th and 25th.

Jack Storms Show Friday, July 31st and Saturday, August 1st, 2020

Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

This summer, we are offering an exclusive opportunity to watch Jack Storms, LIVE demonstrate the process behind his world renown sculptures, right here in the gallery.
Jack Storms glass sculpting begins at the heart of the design, by creating a core of lead crystal which is cut, polished and fused creating reflective mirrors. When wrapped in optical crystal, the refraction of light, as it passes through the glass art, creates rainbows of hypnotic color. The 10-week process of repetitive cutting, grinding and polishing requires intense passion and rigid self-discipline. Join us at the gallery July 31st and August 1st for refreshments, as Jack dedicates and presents his work.

Steve Barton Show Friday, August 14th and Saturday, August 15th, 2020

Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

Steve's playful artwork captured the attention of Disney and opened a whole new marriage of artistic imagination. Join us as we watch Steve paint live and dedicate your painting.

Sally Maxwell Show Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th, 2020

Event Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

Sally has helped to define scratchboard as a fine art medium; using similar techniques to etching or engraving, scratchboard originally was used for magazine illustration and for products in catalogs. Working with scratchboard allows Sally to layer up rich, deep colors and capture minute details, and her innovation and experimentation with new tools has given her the ability to produce a softer, less linear technique. Join us at the gallery for refreshments and hors d'oeuvres on September 11th and 12th as Sally demonstrates and shares her etching process. Something new and exciting at Marcus Ashley Gallery!
