Frank Juarez Gallery welcomes Ashley Wilson and Lybra Ray

The Frank Juarez Gallery is pleased to welcome Ashley Wilson and Lybra Ray to the gallery. Ashley is the gallery’s fifth high school gallery intern and Lybra will be writing and interviewing for the gallery. 

IMG_0281Ashley is a junior at Sheboygan North. She has been taking art since her freshman year with Mr. Juarez and she plans to become an art major in college. Ever since first grade she had a strong liking to art. She looks forward to being exposed to different media and styles of art. Her goals for the future are to work at Pixar Studios as a studio artist or to become a professional tattoo artist. Other than making art, she also enjoys playing the clarinet, runs track, cross country, and manages the Sheboygan Red Raider’s Boys Hockey Team. 

Lybra Ray Headshot

Lybra Ray spent her childhood growing up in Milwaukee, WI, living through her imagination where she delved into self-expression through art. She always thought her art would be a collaboration of paint and collage. It wasn’t until February 2013 when she was exploring the Montmartre neighbourhood around her hostel in Paris that she began to believe that her dream of becoming a traveling artist could become a reality. She stumbled into a pop-up studio for an artist that used mixed media of collage and street art to make incredible paintings. This serendipitous event would spark the much needed reassurance from the universe that she could do this too. In 2014, upon returning from a four month journey in Brazil she had a fresh new perspective on life. Inspired to begin her own artistic journey, she returned home to Haven, WI. Lybra Ray’s colourful life is conveyed in her art. These are the first pieces from the start of the adventure.
