Ahh Gallery in Louisville Opens “Winter Art Show”

 

On Thursday January 18 from 5 – 8 pm the Art and History Gallery (The Ahh Gallery) at 120 East Main Street in downtown Louisville, Ohio will open its “Winter Art Show.”  The show features two artists that are new to the Gallery and a returning local 10-year-old Louisville Middle School student named Henna Faith Gash.   “My mother tells me that I have been an artist since I was 11 months old,” says Henna, who loves to draw and has learned a lot of her skills from her father.   Henna’s newest pencil drawing is entitled “Running Free.”
Artist Dan Sadle will be displaying his stained glass vases.  Dan, whose interest in stained glass started with his taking lots of classes, says it is a three-day process to make just one of his vases — and that every vase is totally unique.    
 
And Louisville photographer Richard Patrick will also be there.  Richard developed his interest in photography after retirement in 2004 from 35 years as a music educator.  His photographer has won many awards.  Several of his photographs were recently on display at The Smoky Mountain Nature Photography Summit in Townsend, Tennessee.  One of them, “Bald Eagle over Snowcaps” was one of the winners.  Richards’s adventures as a photographer have taken him to numerous locations across America including Acadia National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
The Ahh Gallery will also have a variety of works by 30 artists in various media, all available for purchase.  These include small paintings and drawings, pottery, jewelry, blown and pulled glass, hand-made greeting cards and much more.  Art by Louisville Middle School art students, under the instruction of Mrs. Lisa Galentine and Miss Kat Fullmer, will be on display as well.   Light refreshments, along with live music by Brett Kuhnash, will also be featured.  
 
Some of the other Artists in the show are: Barb Aiken, Vivian Geaghan, Jon Wilson, Chris Brogan, Rick Silvey, Russ Hench, Abi Yeagley, Frank Dale, Hannelore Brown, Marjorie Lutes, Yvonne Walter, Kris Marshall, Susan Nolt Banks, Mike Criswell, Jeff Hoffman, Jake Davis, Mark Brunner, Rachel Davis, Linda Christman, Kathy Fithian, Judi Lindsay, Glenn Heiller, Marie Nelson, Tracey Phillips, Judi Singer, Carolyn Caskey, and Rhonda Dahlheimer, Luke Shephard, James Bennet, William Bogdan, and Karen Scheiller Bogdan.
 
The Ahh Gallery is a project of the Louisville-Nimishillen Historical Society, and is open Thursday and Friday from 1 to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.  History is always on display at the gallery, and the Louisville-Nimishillen Historical Society is always interested in area artifacts, photographs and stories. Support and donations of history items are always appreciated at the Ahh Gallery.  The Art and History Gallery was founded in November 2014.  The Louisville-Nimishillen Historical Society sponsors free monthly programs, offers art classes, and invites everyone to come see what’s happening in historic downtown Louisville.  For more information, please call (330) 875-2829.  The Ahh Gallery is part of the 20/20 Vision Louisville, an economic development project of ArtsinStark and the City of Louisville, whose goal is to transform three historic blocks on East Main Street downtown into “Constitution Place”—a destination for locals and tourists alike.
