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 Barton is famed for his ‘signature’ wavy canvas and frames. His paintings are inspired by the vivid colors of tropical beaches and vacation destinations like Lake Tahoe. 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.

Thomas Easley Show, Friday & Saturday August 21st & 22nd

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

Thomas Easley is an extraordinary talent. He is an author, does book illustrations and paints in a wide variety of media and themes. During his career he has done miniature paintings, marvelous architectural landscapes, nudes, still life’s and has recently started two series of impressionistic paintings. One theme is golfers, where Thomas captures the serenity and intensity of golf. The other theme that is unique and has gained wide acclaim are his impressionistic “Roosters”. The Roosters have attitude, action, and vibrant color.

He is, in my opinion, our first 21st Century artist.” — Zannah Castaneda, Art Critic/Writer/Journalist (Encinitas, CA).

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!
