Elk County Council on the Arts presents Charles Wish Original Painting Viewing & Studio Tour

April 26, 2017 1:58 PM | Sara Frank (Administrator)


The Elk County Council on the Arts presents a Charles Wish Original Painting Viewing event and exclusive Studio Tour at the Walnut Street Art House. An opening reception will be held Friday, May 5, 5-9PM in the ECCOTA Gallery at 237 Main Street in Ridgway. The collection will be on display for public view until May 26.

Charles Wish (b. Los Angeles, California, 1971) is an American painter best known for visually fusing Regionalism imagery with 9th - 19th century South Asian symbolism and motifs. (Debut show: CPop Gallery, Detroit, Michigan, USA - 2005)

Charles and his wife Abbi Peters have happily resided in Elk County for over 10 years now. However, since Charles is represented by several galleries on both coasts, it has been difficult to show his work here in Ridgway, the town which is now home base for his main studio.

That’s why ECCOTA is so pleased to announce that select pieces of his work will be on public view followed by a personally hosted tour of his studio space at the Walnut Street Art House from 9PM-12AM, immediately after the opening reception at the gallery. The studio tour is limited and reservations must be made at ECCOTA.com.

To view more of Charles Wish’s work visit CharlesWish.com.

Opening Reception: May 5 5-9PM in the ECCOTA Gallery, 237 Main Street, Ridgway

Studio Tour: May 5 9PM-12AM (reservations required at ECCOTA.com)
Viewing will run: May 1 – 26, 2017
