2016 ArtWorks Northwest Artists Announced

2016 ArtWorks Northwest Artists Announced: Umpqua Valley Arts Association UVAA logo2016 ArtWorks Northwest Artists Announced

ROSEBURG, OR – The Umpqua Valley Arts Association is pleased to present the 2016 ArtWorks Northwest artists selected for the group exhibition of works, selected by juror Stephen Hayes. ArtWorks Northwest will run from May 6, 2016 – July 8, 2016 with an opening reception on Friday, May 6th from 5 pm – 7 pm. There will be a discussion and tour with the juror on Saturday, May 7th from 11 am-12 pm.

History of ArtWorks Northwest

Originally titled “Hundred Valleys” when it was founded in 2007, this exhibit showcased local pride in the beautiful Umpqua Valley area of Oregon. In 2012 the name changed to reflect the broader regional outreach and impact of this increasingly important venue; ArtWorks NW’s sister show, PhotoWorks NW, also began in 2012. Finally, in 2015, UVAA married both shows into one exhibition.

From the Juror

“When I agreed to serve as juror for the UVAA 2016 ArtWorks Northwest exhibition there was no way for me to anticipate the scope, and pleasure of the job. Now, having spent long hours over many days carefully considering the work of over 400 entries I marvel at the breadth and depth of the artwork coming out of the region. The job was made more, not less, difficult by the fact that there is so much work of merit being made here, and I would have liked to include many more works than the limited space that the Hallie Ford Gallery can accommodate. In the end, I hope that this selection elicits a picture of the healthy diversity of thought and depth of engagement that defines the artists of the Pacific Northwest.

The range of materials, scale, imagery, media and content of submissions is impressive. Artists in the region are making work for personal expression, as social or political comment, to embrace and engage with materials for their own sake, and to share a love of the beauty of the natural and constructed world we traverse.”

– Juror, Stephen Hayes

 

ArtWorks Northwest will run from May 6, 2016 – July 8, 2016 with an opening reception on Friday, May 6th from 5 pm – 7 pm. There will be a discussion and tour with the juror on Saturday, May 7th from 11 am-12 pm.

Main Gallery: Artist Teen Mentoring Project  

 

The Artist Teen Mentoring Project 2016 Exhibit is a culmination of Rogue Gallery & Art Center’s annual Artist Teen Mentoring Project that pairs professional artists with Rogue Valley high school students for intensive study and interaction. On display is the creative work of both teens and mentoring artists, which includes photography, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and comic art.

 

Through the program, the students learn new techniques to use in their work, how to present their work in an exhibit, and gain insight to the life of a professional artist.

“Bloom,” Mixed Media by Jenny Calaba

Thirteen aspiring teenage artists had the opportunity to work with one of six established artists to create art in a variety of media. Teens went through an application process last fall that included a portfolio review, a written essay, letters of recommendation, and an interview. Teens selected for the program spent over 20 hours with their mentors, learning and practicing techniques and preparing their work for display. Mentor artists include Jenny Calaba, Georganna Happel, Ted Heleard, Mary Wilkins Kelly, David Masters, and Nancy Jo Mullen.

Refreshments by Harry and David will be served at the Artist Teen Mentoring Project 2016 Exhibit artist reception on April 15,  from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.

The Rogue Gallery & Art Center is a non-profit community art center, founded in 1960 to promote and support the arts in the Rogue Valley. The center exhibits a wide range of artistic styles and mediums from local and national artists. Programming includes art educational opportunities for children and adults. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call (541)772-8118 for more info or visit www.roguegallery.org.
