Come join Ashley Rugge for a free evening on Exploration of Forgiveness and Reconciliation. When we forgive whole new worlds within us open up, and when we reconcile, love transforms us and we become vessels of healing for humanity and the earth. Come and explore these topics and their affect on our systems on the four levels of being, the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.

Contemporary realism painted with depth and emotive qualities that remind us of our place in the world. Anelecia was grown and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She paints meditative and reflective paintings about our relationship with objects. Her quiet paintings of everyday objects reflect the passage of time...the used piece of soap, the crumbled up ticket and the stuffed animals. All these images strike a chord within us. Her paintings allow reminiscing about these special moments, in which time is fluid and moving.
Reception for the artist will be on Saturday, May 9th from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 23 at 2:00 p.m. The artist will talk about her recent works.
Gallery open Monday, Wednesday - Saturday, 10:30 a.m. - 5.00 p.m. other times by appointment
