Call to Artists for the 66th Annual Southern Oregon Art Show
August 1-28, 2014
The Rogue Gallery & Art Center will have opening receptions for two exhibitions from 5:00 – 8:00 pm on this Third Friday’s Art Walk. Wine from Weissinger Winery, food from Harry and David, and cheese from Rogue Creamery will be served.
Main Gallery exhibit: Bodies for Billions: The Work of Miguel Aragón
July 11 – August 15, Opening Reception: July 18, 5-8pm
The Rogue Gallery presents works of artist Miguel Aragon. Miguel Aragon uses his own method of layered hand drilled prints to create a series of works that address the Mexican Drug Cartel Wars. The large scale works on partially destroyed paper depict violent imagery of death. The affect reflects the fragile nature of life and the deeply spiritual process of exploring perception and memory while coping with images of profound violence.
Miguel Aragon is a native of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. He holds a M.F.A. from the University of Texas at Austin. He has exhibited throughout the United States, Mexico, South America, Japan, Romania, and Slovakia. He teaches printmaking at the University of Texas at Austin. He currently is a resident artist at the Till Richter Museum in Buggenhagen, Germany.

Applegate ON SITE: Two Workshops, Two Sites & Two Instructors
July 26th, 2014
Silvia Trujillo (yes, she’s back!), oil & acrylics, and Elaine Frenett, watercolor, will lead these two special plein-air classes. Silvia and Elaine, with over 40 years combined experienced as professional artists and art instructors in Oregon and California, delight in leading others along the creative path.
These workshops will begin at the picturesque “Lavender Fields Forever” farm, with the lavender at its brilliant peak, and continue at the dazzling vistas of Valley View Winery. Each session will include an outdoor painting introduction, demonstrations by both instructors in their media and ample time for individuals to develop their own unique paintings. A friendly share will close the gathering. Optional and additional activities include lavender distillation, vintage car viewing and wine sampling. Won’t you come celebrate summer in the Applegate Valley with us?
Sanctuary One’s Summer Soiree and Benefit is July 19th at the Ashland Springs Hotel! This event replaces the Annual Bachelor Auction, which was very popular, but not completely in line with the mission of the Sanctuary. As with that event, I am also on the planning committee for the Summer Soiree.
We kick off the evening with cocktail hour & appetizers, along with shopping for farm-related items like dog cookies & bird houses made at the Sanctuary, and farm stays, tours & birthday parties complete with cupcakes from Kat von Cupcake, who donates all of her proceeds to the Sanctuary - Yay Kat! (She makes excellent vegan cookies and cakes as well!). My painting of Sanctuary One Rooster “Captain Morgan” (below) is for sale as well, with all of the money benefiting the Sanctuary. Larks is catering the gourmet vegetarian or vegan dinner served with wine, and dessert. There is a brief presentation about the Sanctuary, a raffle drawing for a stay at Villa de Poema, in Sayulita, Mexico (tickets for the raffle are just $10) and dancing to East Main Band until 10:30PM. Tickets to the event are $75, but our ticketing deadline is Friday, June 11th at 11AM.
If you are a big supporter of Sanctuary One, or if you just want to know more about what they do, come celebrate with us on July 19th! Click here for more information – https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sanctuary-one-summer-soiree-benefit-tickets-10286560379

“Whole Hearted” Water media Paintings
Eve is an international award winning professional Artist creating quality one-of-a-kind paintings using mixed water media and collaged materials. They are magical surrealistic impressions reflecting the essential feeling ingredients of an experience or place. “Many of my favorite and most exciting works re the result of finding creative solutions to things run amok a few times over. I play and adventure with my expressions, following threads here and there, thus entering the flow of my creative process; head and heart awake and in balance.”
Painted entirely with a palette knife, this is a copy of a plein air work I did of Billings Pond in Ashland during June last year. I enjoyed the challenge of recreating the scene in a contemporary/abstract style – in the end, it feels much more personal.
