Opening Reception: Clrcle Dot Moon

Friday, February 2 from 7-10 pm, South City Art Supply, 1926 Cherokee

“cIrcle dot moon” might simply describe Ashli England’s painting process—little circles adding up to moon-like satellites. Or maybe it’s the beginning of an ancient incantation—at least it sounds like that when she says it. However you engage with her colorful abstracts, you are bound to find energy and comfort in Ashli's vision. Please join us for the opening reception of cIrcle dot moon on February 2nd. We’ll provide refreshments, and you’ll provide the charming company. Don’t miss this chance to see Ashli's work all together, it will be a powerful show! Facebook Invite
