Vernon Rickman, An Artful Life
The life and work of Newton-born artist Vernon Rickman is highlighted in “Vernon Rickman, An Artful Life,“ a book by Beverley Olson Buller and published by the Carriage Factory Art Gallery.
A new exhibit of Kayann Ausherman’s artwork, “Enchanted Earth,” is now on display.
Ausherman lives in a big 100-year-old farmhouse in rural central Kansas. She rejoices in exploring creative expression through a variety of art forms and strives to make those readily available in both practical and purely aesthetic ways.
Ausherman frequently writes how-to articles from various mixed media art magazines. She has also illustrated children’s books. Besides spending time making art in her studio, she loves teaching workshops and sharing her passion for mixed media art.
“Enchanted Earth” will be on exhibit through July 19.

Thank You... to the 43 founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery. Their foresight in 1983 to rent space in a former carriage factory and later to become owners of the property as a nonprofit arts organization led to a renewal of appreciation for creative arts in the community. The gallery today provides opportunities for all ages to gather, learn, experience, perform, share, and celebrate the arts. We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the beauty of the art and the hospitality of this historic space.
Three of the founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery were together at a special event in the gallery: Martha Knudsen, Dr. Frances Allen, and Naomi Wenger
