Ashton Hill has been the true inspiration for visual artists each year at our festival. She came to us three years ago with the idea of adding art to the event and we couldn’t be happier that our paths have crossed. Each year she puts in tons of work to assemble talented artists, plan an amazing space and of course create some awesome artwork! She does all this before even getting to Wonderland Mountain at ACE Adventure. Talking bout her art she says;
“As a live painter I extend my creative self to the people for entertainment, for intrinsic thought, for your soul to be touched. Journeying from festivals to galleries to events to street performance, my goal is to bring a consciousness of creation to all I encounter. Along the way I vend my craft, interact with the public, and expose my heart and soul through every painting.”
Brian Zickafoose is an award-winning commercial artist, musician and publisher, who specializes in piercing the perimeter of perception, and illuminating the vibrant and divine nature of the human spirit. Although he has a penchant for exploring parallel dimensions, intergalactic adventure and time travel, Brian currently resides deep in the mountains of West Virginia with his wife Jeannine, daughters Daisy, Xia and Zenna, and a polydactyl cat named Butterfly, near the New River Gorge.
A bohemian adventurer sails far, and wide into the vast seas of inner space. From there, he delves into its depths in search of many visual treasures and oddities. Letting the flow of all things take the wheel, Ryan Byrd merges dancing and painting into one. The art takes on a life of its own, and he just becomes the observer. The canvas becomes a door way into the lucid depths of the human imagination. He lets his subconscious mind paint to the rhythm and beats of the music and the high vibe energy in his environment. He keeps layering on paints in shapes and patterns creating levels of depth. Eventually his imagination begins conjuring radically whimsical creatures and creations, built out of the depths of reality, the fractals, and the spirit realm. This is his Psychonautical Voyage.
