Hatching from my Chrysalis…

“Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been.”

– Alan Alda

Tomorrow at Grounded Cafe and Patio from 5-7pm I will be around with Micky for a short closing reception prior to the take down of our artwork. If you would like to purchase one of my orignal artworks or art decks I will have plenty to choose from. (See photos below) If you have yet to hear I am moving next month to Sunny Arizona. But I will be back to La Crosse of course to see friends, family, paint booked commissions, murals, a climate change art show in Fall etc. But if you would like to say bye and just have a glass of wine that would be swell. Facebook your response here. Enjoy wine specials all night and share a charcuterie board with friends all while supporting the work of local art at Grounded! This is a FREE and ALL AGES event.

This move is very welcome in my life. It will be tough for awhile but pressure makes a butterfly, a diamond, and a great lesson learned (not to mention GREAT ART!) Sometimes in life, I believe to prevent stagnation or improve myself I must overcome great challanges. A challange that makes me break out from an outdated world view. Nothin’ like leaving a tightly packed Chrysalis and transforming into a Monach Butterfly!

Butterflies can’t see their wings.

They can’t see how truly beautiful they are,

but everyone else can.

People are like that as well.

Pink, Purple, & Periwinkle: A love Affair Artshow

Who: Hello, Ashton Hall here! If you have been following on the heels of my career as of late you would have seen I have been making great strides into grand territories professionally. Opening a half year lease to focus on my artwork, I’ve decided to open my studio space up for the public to enjoy. In short the surrounding community is welcome to browse my studio during open hours and during exhibitions. I will be including local artists on the studio gallery walls that arent under the confines of subject limitation and commission. Since I have years of experience curating and exhibiting my own work and others in galleries, bars, cafes, theatres and other public places I’ve decided to use my expertise to organise several group shows. These solo & group shows will highlight my own work and local artistians unlimited perceptions. I hope to bring community together for several nights through Nove,ber 2019- April 2020 to talk art, culture, and grow revenue for artists in hopes of finding funds for projects in their careers.
