Ashby Village values and encourages the creativity of our members and recognizes the importance of showcasing the works of the fine artists in our midst. In 2014, the Village staged its first art exhibit — a juried show of members’ photography at The LightRoom Gallery in Berkeley, with spillover works exhibited next door, at the Tomate Cafe. In 2017, photographer Nancy Rubin and writer Cynthia Bix created the Reframing Aging exhibit at the Village headquarters.
In 2020, in conjunction with the launch of the Exploring Creativity initiative during the Covid-19 pandemic, we created the online Village Gallery to showcase the work of some of the fine artists among us, both members and volunteers. This gallery is still under construction. After technical and organizational procedures are developed, exhibits will rotate here at regular intervals. Meantime, we invite you to check out the work of our past exhibitors.
