Ashley Mask


Ashley Mask addresses the everyday in her artwork, using photography, painting, and time-based media to explore the communal relationships connecting people, places, and things. Her work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts Biennial, “Empathy Plus One” at the Colourworks Gallery in Wilmington, Delaware, New Talent show at Space Gallery in Denver, Colorado, and “Cups of Waves” at Naropa University and University of Colorado Andrew J. Macky Gallery. She is currently a Doctoral Fellow in the Art and Art Education program at Columbia University Teachers College in New York City, which means her creative art practice is primarily manifested in the form of research: writing and reading and writing some more. In addition to teaching in art museums, running a small gallery space, and all that writing and reading, she also excels at making granola and getting lost in downtown Manhattan.
