Catch on Fire!
Exhibition opening at The Collective
Thursday, January 18, 2018
6 to 8 p.m.
 



"Catch on Fire," a collection of the art of designer Ashley Washington, opens Thursday, January 18, at the Community Artists' Collective,  4101 San Jacinto, Suite 116, with a reception from 6 to 8:00 p.m.

Washington, the owner of Visionary Art & D├ęcor, creates her abstract art to express a feeling of happiness, hope, joy and inspiration.  Each painting has a story behind it.
 
The native Houstonian takes pride in the city's diversity of cultures and embraces its melting pot of individuals from all over the world.
 
"That same diversity inspires my love for the arts.  A person's journey in life displays a uniqueness of character which can be expressed in my creations," she explained.

"Catch on Fire" is based on one of Washington's favorite scriptures, Jeremiah 20:3, "because it expresses a burning desire that cannot be contained so it must be released." She dedicates the collection to her late godbrother James Vaughn, who turned his dark season in life into light for other men who struggled with adversity.

"Catch on Fire" runs through February 23.  The Collective is open during the exhibition Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12 noon until 5 p.m. and by appointment.
