ASK is pleased to present Poetic License in collaboration with Poetry Barn. We had a virtual opening with readings from poets and discussion from the artists:

Each piece in this exhibition was inspired by a poem. Click on an image below to view the works. Some of the poems are available to listen from this site, there will be a play button below the images. If you would like to purchase a work email us at

ASK is committed to supporting both the arts and our local artists even while our physical galleries cannot be open. If you are interested and able, consider donating to us so that we can fulfill this commit to community or becoming a member of ASK.
