Ashley Benton (B.F.A., painting, 1990)
Ashley Benton has recently returned home to Atlanta, GA after spending the last years primarily in Colorado. She is a painter, works in ceramics, collage, plaster, wax, watercolor and yes, even glitter. She is currently represented by the the Sandra Phillips Gallery in Denver, the Hall Barnett Gallery in New Orleans, and Gingerbread Square in Key West. The work is sensitive, serene , alluring, imaginative and mysterious.

Less than reality, more than a dream…View All Products
