For nearly 2 decades Asha Murthy MacDonald has participated in juried art exhibitions, charity auctions, quick draws, public art installations and has received representation from galleries nationwide. Asha has also worked as a costume and props assistant and more recently the head of costume design and production for the Virginia City Opera House since 2004. While she has enjoyed much success costuming as well as marketing a line of her own handmade handbags, painting remains her primary focus. A Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts has enhanced a painting style and repertoire, which continually expands to include figurative and natural modes of realism. As a resident of Missoula, Montana, and former resident of Virginia City, Montana her work has evolved to capture the grandeur of the surroundings.
Asha’s work is currently represented in Montana by The Creighton Block Gallery and The Hole in the Wall Gallery located in Ennis, Montana.
