RIDGWAY – The Elk County Council on the Arts will present a Charles Wish original painting viewing event and exclusive studio tour at the Walnut Street Art House.
An opening reception will be held May 5, from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m., in the ECCOTA Gallery at 237 Main St., in Ridgway. The collection will be on display for public view until May 26.
Charles Wish is an American painter best known for visually fusing Regionalism imagery with nine to 19th century South Asian symbolism and motifs.
He and his wife, Abbi Peters, have happily resided in Elk County for more than 10 years now. However, since he is represented by several galleries on both coasts, it has been difficult to show his work here in Ridgway, the town which is now home base for his main studio.
That’s why ECCOTA is so pleased to announce that select pieces of his work will be on public view followed by a personally hosted tour of his studio space at the Walnut Street Art House from 9 p.m. – 12 a.m., immediately after the opening reception at the gallery.
The studio tour is limited and reservations must be made at ECCOTA.com. To view more of Charles Wish’s work visit CharlesWish.com.
