Ashley McEwen: Surface Tension

Running concurrently in the Annex Gallery is 2019 Virginia Artists Juried Exhibition Best in Show winner, Ashley McEwen. Ashley McEwen’s paintings “deal with the concept of time as a network of possibilities that are intentionally tampered with, or left alone purely out of the desire to see what happens.”
