Port Jeff’s Hannaford Studios will be celebrating all things “alive” with guest and wildlife artist, Aubrey Ashburn.

The art studio, located at 25 Chandler Square, will be showcasing Ashburn’s unique and vibrant paintings on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, from noon to 9 p.m. on both days.

There will also be wine and cheese and a limited edition print giveaway.

Aubrey explains her art journey in her own words:

“Since learning about the growing elephant and rhino-poaching crisis and visiting Africa in 2014, I have been deeply inspired to express my love for animals through art,” she said. “I am a wildlife activist and conservationist, using art as a cathartic expression and a cornerstone talking point for the growing movement.”

Ashburn strives for realism in form but allows for abstraction within the shape, through a hyper-realized contrast and expression of color. ​
