Ashley Garner - TheColorG is a visual artist who grew up in Martinsburg, PA and currently resides in Philadelphia, PA. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Ash works in soft sculpture, site-specific installation and painting. Her work examines visual and physical relationships between art and architecture that exist as a metaphor for connections and bridges between her childhood and adulthood experiences. She uses symbolic soft objects as a physical link between those experiences within a presented architecture and space.
Ashley’s work has been exhibited at museums, galleries, and institutions that include Atelier FAS Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA; Cherry Street Pier, Philadelphia, PA; Point Park University, Pittsburgh, PA; Westin Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA; Framehouse and Jask Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA; The Brewhouse Association, Pittsburgh, PA; Fusion Atelier, Brookville, PA; Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Edinboro, PA; and the Erie Art Museum, Erie, PA. Ashley will be attending a 2-week residency at the Studios at MASS MoCA in March 2021, funded by a PAFA fellowship.
