Studio 151 open for First Friday Artwalk

Art by Elizabeth York: "Being with Blue Birds," "Elli" and "Cami."
August 5, 2022

Featured works by Marilyn Briggs and Elizabeth York

Oil paintings by Marilyn Briggs and sculptures by Elizabeth York will be on display during a First Friday Artwalk reception at Studio 151 on Friday, Aug. 5.

In 1963, Briggs opened Ashland’s first art gallery, the “Stump.” Her paintings have referenced abstract landscapes with “moons” since graduate school, but her new series suggests previously unknown planets in pastel pigmentations. The paintings are composites of natural and aerial views painted with oils on canvas.

“Immense Possibilities within the Galactical Abyss” by Marilyn Briggs

Also featured is mixed media sculptural art by York, whose art includes two books of spontaneous art therapy unwinding early trauma, a series investigating “time,” sacred geometry including the sri yantra, Buddhas composed in wall relief form and a variety of animals and birds. Recent work focuses on abstract sculptural figures including large scale images of beings and animals.

Studio 151 is at 151 North Pioneer St., next to Ruby’s restaurant. The Studio 151 reception is set for 5 to 7 p.m.; Artwalk runs from 5 to 8 p.m. the First Friday of each month. This month’s Artwalk guide (click here) lists 25 galleries, studios and associates participating throughout Ashland.
