Sizzling Summer Guest Artist

Transformed by the Journey

About every three months, Hunter-Wolff Gallery brings a new guest artist on board for a brief guest appearance.  This month, Ashley Dull from Minnesota joins us with her carefully molded textured oil paintings. Her landscapes with their sun-setting sky pull you in for a closer look. Is it a painting or photograph, people ask. Then a careful look lets you see how see covers her canvas with what looks like little peaks of thick colored frosting. But step back a few feet and the texture disappears and these nature-inspired scenes appear almost photographic, as though you could step into the scene and walk right down the path.

This under-30 year old artist is making a big splash in her home state and now invited into a number of galleries in Colorado. She recently explained her desire to reach more people and hear them say, “I wanna touch that. I wanna be there.” Then she goes on to explain her own inspiration, “When I am hiking in the woods, touching everything, enjoying the peace that nature brings – I want to put that [feeling] in my paintings. I want to make people feel good.”  Her work has been on our walls for only a week and everyone who visits, steps right up to her exhibit and do the wow-thing.  If you want a painting that makes you “want to be there” for a peaceful experience, then stop by for a close-up look at the Ashley Dull exhibit.

You will find it uplifting. That’s the feeling Ashley is hoping you feel.
