Parris Ashley: Death of America

November 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - November 26, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Parris Ashley was born in Baltimore, but spent his formative years in Detroit, Mich. Today, he lives in Frostburg. In 2016, he graduated from Frostburg State University with a BA in Painting and a minor in Art History. Ashley has completed over twenty murals in Allegany County since 2012. His murals can be found at locations such as Canal Place in Cumberland and the Public Pool in Frostburg. Ashley’s exhibition is a reflection of his sentiment toward current socioeconomic circumstances in America. The forty works are acrylic paintings on various surfaces, both conventional and recycled.

An opening reception for the exhibition will be held at the Allegany Arts Council on Saturday, November 4, from 6 – 8pm. Refreshments will be available, and the public is welcome to attend. The Allegany Arts Council is located at 9 N. Centre St. in Cumberland. The galleries are open to the public Tuesday through Sunday between the hours of 11am and 5pm.
