Ashland Artists Seek Inspiration

11-16 ashland artASHLAND, Ore. – Local artists are getting a dose of inspiration and a show of talent this weekend as part of the Art Inspires Ashland event.

The event spanned Friday and Saturday.

It allowed local artists to interact with and learn from three famous artists from around the country with talents ranging from painting to documentary film making, and even comic illustration.

Now in its second year, the event brought in about 200 people for this evening’s keynote speeches, in addition to three sold-out workshops during the day.

It’s expected to raise about $10,000, all of which will go to educational programs put on by the Ashland Art Center.
