The public is invited to view the solo exhibition of local artist Kayla J. Spivey, “From the Ashes.” According to the artist, this exhibition “. . . represents the metaphorical concept of grief as a transformative experience. Turning the pain of love with nowhere to go into something more beautiful; like a phoenix rising from the ashes.” The centerpiece of Kayla’s exhibition is Memorial, a deconstructed quilt created from a collection of porcelain tiles infused with her late mother’s ashes. Acrylic ink is used to color each tile, highlighting the intricate details of various fabric patterns that have been hand pressed into the clay. This exhibition will be available for viewing in-person during our typical operating hours.  More information can be found by visiting


A closing reception for the exhibition has been scheduled for Friday, October 7, and is free to the public.
