Ashley Warthen - Finding Peace

Join us First Friday, March 5th at Rob Shaw Gallery and Framing for an opening reception of new works by Ashley Warthen.

Ashley’s art process has evolved over the years and has recently served to soothe anxiety and used as a ladder out of a dark hole. The series Finding Peace is a collection of all of the emotions that come with the cycle of fear, depression, finding strength and returning back to hope. Some works represent finding a way forward, others represent the trauma of being stuck in the thick of it.

The creative process is ever-evolving. Art to me is learning. The purpose for creating for me is not the product, but the experience, the experimentation, the play, and the epiphanies of life that emerge as I work.

Rob Shaw Gallery and Framing is a full service Picture Frame Shop and Art Gallery. Located at 324 State Street, West Columbia. Rob Shaw is a painter and enjoys introducing people to different styles of art. The function of the Gallery’s monthly Art Shows is to share with clients the many different types of artists we have living in South Carolina.
