The Ashtabula Arts Center Foundation


The Foundation was founded by two brothers, Lawrence L. and Willard T. Hill. They believed a plan should be established for the welfare of the Ashtabula Arts Center and its expansions through a means of perpetuating gifts of money and securities. It was established on April 25, 1974, and is operated by a Board of Supervisors. Supervisors meet quarterly to review the program and determine how income should be used. Monetary gifts are permanently recorded along with your name, or memorialized name(s). The supervisors invest gifts prudently. In this way, income is earned, thereby adding to the resources of the Foundation. The supervisors, board, and staff of the Arts Center are most grateful for gifts to the Foundation.

A New Partnership with Ava Anderson Non-Toxic

 Featuring products for skin and hair care, baby, SPF, make-up, cleaning, deodorant, and more!

~ Gluten Free ~
~ Biodegradable ~
~ Made in the USA ~
~ Non Toxic ~


Allison Anderson, Ava Anderson Consultant                                     440.474.3774
Contact her to order, host, or for business opportunity.
www.avaandersonnontoxic.com/allisonanderson


Arts Center Begins New Partnership
with Ava Anderson Non-Toxic
(Allison Raymond Anderson, Consultant)


While I'm a big believer in the old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," I've grown a bit alarmed about the toxins that have come to surround us in all aspects of our lives.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease several years ago and need to live a gluten-free life, which means not just in the food I ingest, but the products I put on my skin.  So I've become a big label-reader, and I've had my eyes opened to the toxic ingredients in conventional products such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, body lotion, and cleaning supplies that have been linked to all kinds of ailments like cancer.  I've also learned from a number of friends with kids and grandkids that they have become increasingly concerned with the allergies and sensitivities afflicting their young ones.

In a response to recent data concerning potential health risks from antibacterial soaps, and in an effort to provide a healthy environment for families at the arts center, Allison Anderson will supply organic hand soap and hand sanitizer to be used by all who learn, play, visit, and work here. The organic hand soap is free of triclosan, sodium laurel sulfate, phthalates, parabens, and synthetic dyes and fragrances, and the hand sanitizer contains a blend of organic essential oils, including neem oil and tea tree oil, both lauded for their antibacterial properties. These products are biodegradable, so not only are they safe for people, but they're safe for the environment, too.  Allison is passionate about educating the community on the dangers of toxic chemicals, and we look forward to using these safe products under our roof.  Please see her ad for contact information if you'd like to learn more about it.

In Our Gallery...Upcoming Summer Exhibits

In Our Gallery...


~July Exhibit~
Conversations on Canvas
by Mardi Snyder
On display July 3-29
An art opening reception will be held Friday, July 18
from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
with music by Tom Todd

July exhibit - Conversations on Canvas by Mardi Snyder:
    Mardi Snyder grew up in Ashtabula and now resides in Painesville.  At the University of
Vermont, where she received her B.A. in studio art, Mardi studied “pop” artists including Andy Warhol. She has also been influenced by abstract expressionists, Jackson Pollack with his drip paintings, and Hans Hoffman’s bright and bold converging squares.  Today, Mardi produces abstract works as well as representational work which is loosely rendered.





~August Exhibit~
Finnish Expressionism
by Don Tiitto
On display Aug. 6-Sept. 7
An art opening reception will be held Friday, Aug. 8
from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

August Exhibit -
Finnish Expressionism by Don Tiitto
    “The 1940’s brought us abstract expressionism and since then, Germany and some other countries have joined the expressionistic movement,” says Don. “I decided that, for this show, I would introduce a version of Finnish Expressionism as a style and cats for the subject matter. Why cats? Because I love cats! Cats remind me of peace, something lacking in today’s world. Cats, like people, have their individual personalities and each one has their own version of happiness, another quality I see little of today.  So if my paintings, drawings, and sculptures can bring thoughts of peace and happiness to my audience, I will feel I’ve done something good.”

Director's Desk for Summer 2014

Happy Spring— I thought it would never arrive!  A couple of things are on my mind, and the first is our wonderful cadre of volunteers.  After a few months on the job, it’s my belief that we at the arts center might organize ourselves a little better in terms of how we communicate with our volunteer corps and use their time.  I’m always looking for ways we might best utilize technological tools like e-mail and social media to communicate with our many friends, while still using a print newsletter to convey key information about upcoming events.  Sadly, a recent computer virus wiped out a good bit of our data, including several volunteer lists with contact
information, which we are in the process of reconstructing.  By the time you read this, we will have held at least two volunteer meetings to get suggestions and talk a little bit about how the arts center can be a better partner.

If you are a volunteer here at the arts center or want to become one—whether working onstage or backstage; assisting with box office, ushering, and concessions; making and serving food for receptions and dinners; lending a hand with with costumes, sets, lights, or props; keeping our facilities and grounds in good condition; or delivering jack-of-all-trades whatever-needs-to-be done-services—please make sure that we have your current contact information.  And if you are unable to make our meetings, please feel free to call Pam Hammond or me at any point with any comments you may have.  We value your advice as well as your time commitment.

Because of our aforementioned computer virus, our membership campaign is starting a few weeks later than usual, so I’m hoping our current members have received their renewal letters, and that the rest of you will get your invitation letters shortly.  There are so many wonderful stories I’ve heard about the arts center over the years, from the students who have studied here and then gotten college scholarships to the economic value we provide in the recruitment and retention of employees throughout the county.

I urge any of you who are reading this who are not yet members to strongly consider joining us.  We try very hard to keep our classes and performances affordable, which means we need to raise more than half of our yearly operating costs.  Your membership gift is a very important part of helping us to do just that.
