Troy Hemmerling’s Ultimate Journey

Like most of us, Troy Hemmerling wears many hats—the headpiece of artist and set designer who has created works for a number of regional theaters (including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival); the crown of dad to Tess; the chapeau of partner to Ginny; and the many lids of friend/brother/cousin/son to hundreds of us within the diverse cross-sections of communities that create Ashland and the world beyond.

Ashland Wax Queen

Jessica Dunn Schubert’s our very own well sought-after aesthetician, and owner of abasha skin care is celebrating fourteen years in the skin care business. Seven years in her home state of Colorado and seven years in Ashland. Owning and operating a skin care therapy shop seems like first nature to Jessica with her 50’s waitress uniform and welcoming smile. She is ready to beautify Ashlands people starting at 9:00am, 5 days a week. We spoke with Jessica about the art of waxing and more.

What Is The Ashland Food Project?

About a year ago, a group of Ashlanders began working on a project designed to provide a regular supply of food to the Ashland Emergency Food Bank (AEFB). “We knew that a lot of our neighbors wanted to donate food, but for one reason or another, never got around to it,” explains the group’s co-founder, Paul Giancarlo. “So we decided to put together a door-to-door food collection system to make it easy for them.” They called it the Ashland Food Project.

Yellow Cupboard - At Home in Ashland

/
The Yellow Cupboard is a new art supply store located at 629 “A” street, between 5th and 6th street in Ashland’s historic railroad district. The store was founded by brothers Aaron and Isaac Park, with the help of their mother, Annette, in March of 2010. The Yellow Cupboard specializes in art supplies geared towards the Waldorf arts curriculum, and also carries professional art supplies for painting, drawing, and printmaking, as well as a wide variety of crafting materials and tools.
