In the Old Way a gallery is a cave a place for people to gather, tell stories, heal, make ritual, eat, celebrate, and face their own depths safely held in the embrace of their trusted and trustworthy community. First and foremost it is a place for community intimacy.

   Gallery Mystes Rising is a gallery in the Old Way. We are a medicinal art gallery in that each of our pieces is a medicinal symbol for just the right person. What more we’ve also got herbal medicines here to support your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well- being. Because lets face it plants are amazing and so good for us. We also carry Natural Earth Paint. Mineral pigments to supply you with endless ways to be creative ( also a very important part of optimal health).

   Gallery Mystes Rising is also an artist-run working gallery- its a mouthful- but basically that means artists are in charge of gallery operations and work here as their studio too.

   Gallery Mystes Rising was founded by Ashley Virginia Rugge. She is an artist, permaculture gardener/ native habitat landscaper, beekeeper, mentor, and medicine maker. You can learn more about her work by visiting her website
