ashland gallery association august exhibits : “Embrasser du Regard” (Behold) by Adele Hiles, 60 X 40 acrylic on canvas

“Embrasser du Regard” (Behold) by Adele Hiles, 60 X 40 acrylic on canvas

Our annual, invitational, all women artists show.
Over 20 artists: photography, painting, porcelain portraits, textiles, ceramics, books and cards.

The highlight of the show, “Embrasser du Regard (Behold)” by Adele Hiles, depicts her daughter-in-law and symbolizes what’s facing today’s woman.

Adele’s inspiring accompaniment says, in part, “Embracing the circumstances of one’s existence and holding one’s own within it, is a woman’s challenge, life’s challenge. Immerse and embrace. Be held and behold. Engage with your surroundings and hold your own strength. Hold your head above water and find your nobility.”

BONSAI ROCK, photograph by Bruce Bayard

On a recent trip to the Oregon and California coast between Harris Beach and Elk Prairie, Ann DiSalvo drew scenes en plein air, and Bruce Bayard shot photos and video; each artist exploring in their own way the boundary between land and sea.

Focusing primarily on rock forms, Ann’s drawings convey strength, yet allude to the fragile nature of the land, the potential for upheaval when considering the unusual mixture of rock forms especially near Crescent City. While the masses of rock represent solidity, geologically it is a subduction zone and earthquakes, with ensuing tsunamis, can be expected in time.

Bruce’s photography and video present both soft and hard edges of the land-sea boundary. Trees, waves, sand, clouds, and mist soften the massive rock forms that tumble from the continent’s edge. Meanwhile, image sequences portray the temporal journey of humans through the ancient stands of redwoods.

During the August First Friday artwalk, a video projection and improvised soundscape will be presented in addition to the drawings and photos.

Bobbie Jansen & Gabriel Mark Lipper, paintings: still lifes & portraits

ashland gallery association august exhibits : "Aeada 3", oil on panel by Gabriel Mark Lipper

“Aeada 3”, oil on panel by Gabriel Mark Lipper

At first glance Bobbie Jansen and Gabriel Mark Lipper’s paintings are still lifes and portraits, and while both artists approach painting with a respect to these traditions, they share a greater concern for the archetypal resonance of their subject matter.  Transcending the individuality of a woman or the functionality of a shoe, through painting the artists are relating to a broader association with people and objects in our lives; our mothers, our sisters, our every day burdens/joys…existing at times as both anonymous, yet deeply familiar and always universal.

Show runs from August 4th – 30th with an artist reception on First Friday, August 5th from 5-8 p.m.

For Albany artist, Bobbie Jansen, it is often in the process of painting an object that she discovers her connection to it. It may be as simple as the shape or color, but more often it is a symbolic stand-in for something greater.
The objects may find themselves in a tight, claustrophobic interior, or in an endlessly expanding exterior. At times they are singular, and isolated, at other times multiplied, intertwined, and chaotic. They may be whole with every detail described, or be fractured, veiled and disintegrating.

Gabriel Mark Lipper’s brilliant, large-scale portraits are filled with lush color and strong brushwork, creating evocative moods. Rather than tell us the story of the person in front of the artist, Gabriel works with familiar archetypes. Lipper’s figures are beautifully rendered with strong light and confident form, a nod to his academic background, while his compositions and subjects are anything but academic.

July Spotlight Exhibits

Nimbus Gallery
Glassworks by Ashland Glass Act

Ashland Gallery Association July Exhibits: Ashland Glass Act at Nimbus Gallery

Ashland Glass Act at Nimbus Gallery

We are proud to feature our midsummer spotlight artists, Daniel and Stef Seffinger of Ashland Glass Act. Danny has studied and continues to study at the Bullseye Glass Education Center in Portland and has 13 years of glasswork experience. He is a skilled and experimental glassmaker, who loves the concept of glass flow and movement. Currently, his interest has been captivated by tapestry and murrini glass. Stefani, along with her 10 years of glasswork, has varied artwork experience, which includes photography, drawing, design, ceramics and watercolor. Her initial interest in glass was in using torch work skills to make glass beads. The studio specializes in a variety of handcrafted techniques and styles using Bullseye glass. These include creation of murrine cane, layered assemblage, edge construction, segment and flow bar construction, pot melts, glass flow pieces, tapestry design, weaved design and torch work. Their products are art pieces, specialty items, items for home use including bowls, platters, trivets, vases, and wall art. Recently, due to their concern about the environment, they have been creating wall art and recycled necklaces to promote environmental awareness.

Their latest environmental wall art piece is entitled CLIMATE CHANGE and reflects the changes in the pattern of seasons. The following is an excerpt from their interpretation of CLIMATE CHANGE: “When Daniel and I started out to make a glass wall art piece, featuring the four seasons, we thought of presenting the seasons, each transitioning from one to the next. While we were creating the piece, we noted that this is no longer what is happening with our weather. Our seasons are not as predictable. We experience spikes of ‘unseasonal heat’ and sudden periods of cold, creating snow when there should be spring flowers. Our piece is meant to represent these changes.” You may view their wall art, along with a selection of other exciting glassworks that is now available in the Nimbus Gallery located at 25 East Main Street in Ashland, Oregon.

“My World, “ photograph by Debra Rene Harder

Debra Rene Harder, the Featured Photographer for July, 2016, is an exceptionally skilled local photographer who will be showing a selection of her recent work, “A Method to The Madness” at the Photographer’s Gallery in the Ashland Art Center.
Debra enjoys traditional photography, but her true passion is creating ‘story-telling’ images; hence a window into her imagination.  The prints displayed this month at the Ashland Art Center, not only show her unique perspective, but also reflect the years spent refining her technique.

The print ‘My World’ depicts Debra’s dream sanctuary created as a composite using various landscapes captured in the Glencoe, Scotland region.  Additionally, two studio portrait prints, ‘Keeping Time’ and ‘Vegan Dining in Style,’ will be shown. These are character driven and convey a curious mood with a bit of humor.

Tortoises: New Work by Clay Artist Marydee Bombeck and Wire Artist George Popa

Ashland Gallery Association July Exhibits: New tortoises by clay artist, Marydee Bombick

New tortoises by clay artist, Marydee Bombick

Clay artist Marydee Bombick will present a collection of ceramic sea turtles in a variety of sizes.  They will be watched over by a curious group of wide-eyed owls.  All can be used either indoors of outside in a garden setting. Marydee’s interest in clay began in her early teens when her aunt taught her to paint on pre-formed pieces.

George Popa will present his Tortoises, his popular Jazz Bands, and much more. His sculptures are three-dimensional sketches, which he creates using wire and silver solder. His career in sculpting began in the 1970’s, when he created a gift for a friend who had everything – except for a sculpture of his sailboat.

This month we will also feature the highly entertaining folk musician and teaching artist, David Nigel Lloyd. David is a non-traditional traditionalist from California. As the British magazine Folk Roots wrote, “Lloyd uses traditional tunes and themes where it suits his purposes.” He has performed in folk venues in England, Ireland, Canada and throughout the United States.

Passages by Marge Heilman

“History has always interested me, especially with regard to art.  Standing on historic ground in France painting in the footsteps of the masters, painting landscapes with interesting stories to tell as I try to portray feeling and atmosphere.  The feeling of energy and passion when I paint a basket or handmade vessel…the hand of the maker seems to be there for me.  From experiences like this come moments in time which are appreciated and carefully rendered into works using different media.  I invite you to visit my “Passages.”

Sculpture by Robin & John Gumaelius

Our June featured artists reimagine the world around us.  The ceramic and mixed assemblage sculptures of collaborative duo, Robin & John Gumaelius stretch the bounds of imaginative figures, embracing the theatrical and whimsical. Painter, Jon Jay Cruson’s landscapes combine studies of his surroundings with color, shapes and patterns from his own imaginative vocabulary.
Exhibition runs June 1st-28th.

Join us for an artists’ reception during Ashland’s First Friday Artwalk, June 3rd 5 -8 p.m.

JON JAY CRUSON’S remarkable career takes him “where the road leads me,” with a current focus on landscape as his primary inspiration.
Time and again I find myself ‘where the road leads me’, not knowing exactly what I will discover yet finding the inspiration from what comes over the horizon. The open country, patterns, shapes, and colors, they are all there. Back in the studio, it all comes together with the play of the elements, transferring, assembling, and incorporating into my own landscape.”
ROBIN & JOHN GUMAELIUS, collaborating artists and husband and wife, create animated human and birdlike sculptures. They combine ceramic, steel and wood as they form highly inventive sculptures that are often comical or bizarre.
Robin and John live in a rural area in Washington State where they have built their studio, home, barn, and gardens while nourishing four beautiful children.

YOSEMITE: Honoring our National Parks

Early exposure to Yosemite as a young child ignited a life-long love of the Park and its grandeur in artist Leif Trygg of Oak Leaf Studio. In celebration of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary this year, Oak Leaf Studio, located at 247 Oak Street between Hanson Howard and Ashland Artworks, will feature large pastel paintings of Yosemite’s landmark scenery. Included in the show is a new picture of Bridalveil Fall, shown here as a work-in-progress. We encourage you to visit the Studio to see the finished piece as well as other magnificent landscapes of this iconic Park.

Shepherd’s Dream
“Inner Landscapes” Abstract paintings by Nina Bindi

Nina Bindi’s, work hangs in private collections and various venues state wide, and can be seen from the 1st Friday in June throughout the end of July, 2016.

In her primarily abstract paintings, Bindi uses acrylic paints, collage elements, and natural materials to create the textural surfaces of her lyrical landscapes.  She is inspired by the cycles of nature and beauty of the Earth, working intuitively with what emerges through the layers.

Nina will be joined by Margaret Correa, acoustic guitarist for the First Friday in June, together with some of Nina’s creative culinary delights.

“Tiger,” mixed media by William Blake

“Tiger,” mixed media by William Blake

The exhibit continues through May showcasing artists who are also poets (and vice versa). It’s surprising how many do both!

Highlights include a very limited edition of Cathy DeForest’s and Derek Pyle’s 3 folio set, Alchemy: Invitations and Offerings. The set includes many signed pieces by well-known artists and writers.

A very special exhibit addition is a new photo and poem by Todd Davis, formerly of Ashland.

Also featured are husband and wife team, Bruce Barton and Jerri Cook Barton. Her Downton Abbey portrait on porcelain tile, of Maggie Smith (as Lady Violet) will make you smile. The Abbey appears in the background, slightly askew signifying changing times.

Don’t miss the sketchbooks with notations by Steve Dieffenbacher and who knew Jonah Bornstein was also a photographer? Come see his work and be surprised.

We carry poetry books by our artists year round but have a particularly good selection right now.

For the Birds: Jhenna Quinn Lewis, Claire Duncan & Barbara Orsow – original paintings and photographs

“Blue Winged Warbler and Bamboo,” oil on panel, by Jhenna Quinn Lewis

In For the Birds, three artists, painters, Jhenna Quinn Lewis and Claire Duncan and photographer, Barbara Orsow interpret birds as their subject matter with unique approaches exploring how birds can fascinate us, enchant us, connect us to the natural world, remind us of our responsibility to the environment, and call us to action.

Join us for an artists’ reception during Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk, May 6th, 5 -8 p.m. Exhibition runs April 22nd – May 31st.

10% of art sales will benefit the Klamath Bird Observatory during the 2016 Mountain Bird Festival, May 20- 22.

Jhenna Quinn Lewis brings life to canvas with oil paint, exquisitely articulating small birds in juxtaposition with unexpected objects and backgrounds.  In this show, Jhenna combines Asian influences with some of her favorite birds.  Barbara Orsow’s fascination with birds in nature led her to use her camera to capture the mystery of their movement and her delight in the beauty of their details.  Claire Duncan paints the power and grace of large birds in acrylic.  Her paintings have a contemporary feel and attempt to deal with her own underlying artistic ideas: light and dark, the nature of color, the relationship of the artist to the world.

“What makes this wine and food pairing event different for all the others? Each winery and restaurant are painstakingly matched and work together to create unique pairings inside17 colorful galleries all within walking, or trolley ride, distance from one another.” says Jeffery Jones, Event Coordinator for A Taste of Ashland. “This is a rare opportunity to sip seventeen of the region’s best wines, taste food from 23 restaurants, and experience artwork from wonderful galleries that represent hundreds for local, regional and international artists.”

The Thorndike is a huge space, light-filled; it will show off the artwork really well.  Ashland has seen some notable gallery owners retire and close their Ashland art galleries recently, so it’s quite welcome to have the opportunity to show off work and meet art lovers and prospective clients.”  There are also several new galleries, wineries and restaurants on the Taste tour this year.

“A Taste of Ashland is the ultimate Ashland experience!” says Jeff Jones, Event Coordinator. “Tasters stroll leisurely through the quaint town of Ashland all afternoon, experiencing the best of Ashland art, food and wine, then have time to relax and attend an Oregon Shakespeare Festival performance in the evening.

Dream House, by Kreshana Baker

Dream House, by Kreshana Baker

March First Friday will have a very special added attraction when the Ashland Gallery Association celebrates student art. Each year AGA member galleries and businesses feature works by budding young student artists from the Fine Arts Department of Ashland High School alongside the work of well-known local, regional, and national artists.

During the First Friday Art Walk on March 4th and throughout the month of March, visitors to participating AGA galleries will be treated by the unique art made by these creative young minds. There will be paintings, drawings, mixed media, and special jewelry pieces, as well as photography on display.  The student artists will be present at their host gallery from 5:00-8:00 p.m. to proudly discuss their work.

Photograph by David Lorenz Winston

David Lorenz Winston is an award-winning, internationally recognized photographer based in Talent, Oregon. A selection of his photographs entitled “Fleeting Moments” will be on display at The Photographers Gallery at the Ashland Art Center from March 4, 2016.

David is particularly known for his winter landscapes. However, his work is not limited to the natural landscape. He is equally at home reflecting on the human condition and uncovering surprises in the ordinary. He brings a unique way of seeing to his work expressed through humor, irony, timing and mystery.  One of David’s favorite visual quests is finding candid moments in which people are totally themselves. He tries to unite the elements of timing, irony and design into these images. These new images represent just a small cross-section of his work in this genre.

David has received many honors for his work, which has been exhibited and published nationally. He was artist in residence at Crater Lake National Park and in 2014 won a Haines Philanthropic Foundation Grant.

Christian Burchard – wood sculptures, Karen Staal – paintings & Marcello Romano  – photographs

Photograph by Marcello Romano

Our three featured artists work in three distinctively different approaches and materials, each turning our attention to nature; nature of material, nature of music and the nature of the infinite world around us.

Christian Burchard skillfully manipulates green wood while allowing it to change organically in the drying process. The result is a beautiful interaction of the nature of the material and the intimate knowledge he’s gained through experimentation.

Karen Staal focuses on Jazz Musicians in this selection of paintings, creating new harmonies with line, shape and color.  While her portrayals are somewhat realistic, they are also interpretive.

In conjunction with the Ashland Galleries Association annual Student Art Exhibit, Ashland High School student, Marcello Romano’s photographs feature the nebulous night sky in his series, Stargazing.   Romano is already exhibiting his nebulous landscapes in LA and drawing much attention. Through long exposures of night sky, Romano is able to capture an entire sky full of stars in these stunning images.

Join us for an artists’ reception on First Friday, March 4th from 5-8 pm.

Betty LaDuke – Bountiful Harvest- paintings, prints and book launch
Christian Burchard- wood sculpture

Betty LaDuke and Christian Burchard are both Ashland artists that have established international recognition for their accomplished careers in contemporary fine art in America. Christian Burchard skillfully manipulates green wood while allowing it to change organically in the drying process. The result is beautiful interaction of the nature of material and the intimate knowledge he’s gained through experimentation.

Betty LaDuke will be launching her new book, Bountiful Harvest: From Land to Table, featuring stories from Southern Oregon’s growers and farm workers along with her painted murals. Her large sculptural paintings and giclee prints will be featured and Betty will be available for book signing during the artists’ reception during the First Friday Art Walk on February 5th from 5-8 pm.

Oregon Flower Harvest, Betty LaDuke
In 2010 painter Betty LaDuke was invited to spend time with the men and women who harvest the orchards, vineyards, and farms in southern Oregon. Betty took to the field with her sketchpads and captured the spirit of each worker in her brilliant and vibrant wood painted panels. She also listened to their stories and the stories of small, organic farmers. Bountiful Harvest brings together the stories and paintings from the vibrant local food movement taking place in southern Oregon.*(White Cloud Press)
LaDuke, who has been painting since 1950, received a scholarship in 1953 to attend the Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. While in Mexico she met muralists Rufino Tamayo, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros whose work depicting laborers continues to influence her.

Songs of the Bones, Christian Burchard
Born in Hamburg, Germany in 1955, Christian Burchard has been living in the United States since 1978. Starting out as a furniture makers apprenticeship in Germany in the middle seventies, he studied sculpture and drawing at the Museum School in Boston then at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver BC.
In 1982 he opened a studio in Southern Oregon. His early focus was on furniture and interiors, but gradually shifted to woodturning and sculpture, moving between vessel oriented forms and sculptural turning. His work has been included in most of the major turning related exhibits of the last twenty something years and is exhibited widely throughout the US. His pieces are part of many public and private collections. His current work includes wall sculptures and freestanding sculptural objects. He is also sought after as a teacher and demonstrator at craft schools, conferences and related turning events. He currently resides with his wife at the outskirts of Ashland, Oregon.

Julie Bonney: An Exploration of Black and White  

Julie departs from her usual work in color to explore the world of Black and White photography.  She recently took a class in Black and White Photography and loves how the subtleties of a subject could be drawn out using these techniques.  By removing color, one is left with a photograph that allows the space for the viewer to take in the nuanced play of light and the shapes and textures of the subject.  Come take a deeper look with Julie as she explores flowers and simple landscapes created using the timeless technique of Black and White.

Schneider Museum of Art
Exploring Reality

Painting by Tia Factor

Painting by Tia Factor

This winter, the Schneider Museum of Art presents Exploring Reality, an exhibition curated by Shane McAdams and Scott Malbaurn that consists of nine artists who delve into and explore reality to complement the Southern Oregon University (SOU) campus theme. The participating artists work in many mediums, including painting, printmaking, installation, and sculpture.

The community is invited to the opening reception of Exploring Reality on Thursday, January 14, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.  Quady North has generously donated wine pouring at the reception.

Free public lectures are scheduled to take place in Meese Auditorium with co-curator Shane McAdams on January 11 at 5:30 PM, artist Ryan Pierce on February 8 at 5:30 PM, and artist Malia Jensen on March 7 at 3:30 PM. Three FREE Family Days will complement the exhibition this season on January 23, February 20, and March 19 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The Museum will also hold Tuesday Tours – weekly docent-led educational tours for the public on Tuesdays at noon. The Museum provides docent-led tours for school and community groups. Please call to schedule a special tour for your group.

SOU’s Center for the Humanities has assembled a series of academic events throughout the year to investigate the theme of exploring reality with the goal “for the campus and our larger community to engage in rigorous intellectual conversations about this challenging subject, informed by the latest research, scholarship, and insights from a wide variety of perspectives.”  The Schneider Museum of Art is happy to collaborate with them this term to provide the insight of artists and curators.

By working with an outside curator, Shane McAdams, who is based in Wisconsin and New York, the Schneider Museum of Art is not only bringing great art from the state of Oregon to our region, but bringing national exposure to these Oregon artists. This type of reach helps to cultivate Oregon’s artistic ecology and further the careers of Oregon artists.  Co-curator and Schneider Museum of Art Director Scott Malbaurn writes that, “A vital component of this exhibition includes an outside curator and a spotlight on Oregon artists.  We acknowledge the boundless talent that Oregon has amongst its contemporary art scene and we have made note of the need to expose others beyond the borders of Oregon to this talent.”

Nine artists will be featured in Exploring Reality: Shane McAdams, a writer, curator, artist, and professor who splits time between Cedarburg, Wisconsin and Brooklyn, New York; Laura Vandenburgh, a Springfield, OR based artist who recently exhibited in Wolkenschauen, a traveling group exhibition in Germany; Charlene Liu, a printmaker based in Eugene, OR who has been reviewed in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, and The New York Times; Tia Factor, a Portland, OR based painter who has exhibited internationally from Oregon and Chicago to Denmark and Tasmania; Robin Strangfeld, a faculty member at SOU whose ceramic work has been exhibited in such places as Wayne State University and Taipei County Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan; Laurel Bustamante, a painter based in Ashland who was a finalist for the Portland Art Museum’s Contemporary Northwest Art Awards in 2013; Ellen Lesperance, a Portland, OR based artist whose work is in the public collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Portland Art Museum, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Kadist Art Foundation; Ryan Pierce, an artist from Portland, OR who, aside from his painting, is co-founder of Signal Fire, a group that facilitates wilderness retreats for artists; and Malia Jensen, a sculptor from Portland, OR who explores complex themes such as the intersection of reality and myth through her work. Jensen has been publicly commissioned multiple times by the Regional Arts and Culture Council in Oregon.

The installation by Laura Vandenburgh is part of the Southern Oregon Site Project. This project, funded in part by The Ford Family Foundation, Roseburg, OR, is designed to support the development and presentation of new art by Oregon artists. Southern Oregon University students served as assistants to the artists during the installation process.  This experience is providing students insight into the artistic process, as well as valuable experience working with professional artists as they construct their works in place.

Free public lectures are scheduled to take place in Meese Auditorium with co-curator Shane McAdams on January 11 at 5:30 PM, artist Ryan Pierce on February 8 at 5:30 PM, and artist Malia Jensen on March 7 at 3:30 PM. Three FREE Family Days will complement the exhibition this season on January 23, February 20, and March 19 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The Museum will also hold Tuesday Tours – weekly docent-led educational tours for the public on Tuesdays at noon. The Museum provides docent-led tours for school and community groups. Please call to schedule a special tour for your group.

The Schneider Museum of Art’s winter exhibition is generously supported by Pyle-DeForest Charitable Foundation, supporting the arts of Southern Oregon, Southern Oregon University Center for the Humanities, The Ford Family Foundation, Roseburg, OR, the Oregon Arts Commission, and Quady North.

Darcie Sternenberg: Glimpses of Iceland

Darcie Sternenberg is a photographer specializing in black and white images.  She will be showing her work, “Glimpses of Iceland”, at The Photographer’s Gallery in the Ashland Art Center during the Art Walk on January 8.

The landscape of Iceland is a visual feast full of dramatic mountains, waterfalls and, black sand beaches. Darcie traveled to Iceland in 2014 to photograph these features in black and white.  A landscape stripped of its vibrant blues and greens becomes a quiet, contemplative place. Elements condensed to tone and form capture a sense of timelessness as well as evoke a sense of mystery. These photographs are her attempt to convey the subtle details of this stark and magnificent place.

Jessica has studied with Portland, Oregon artist Flora Bowley and is the niece of renowned California artist Pamela Findleton.

Samantha McDermott-Goldie, Lower Level Featured Artist

As a child I loved to create potions out of everything around me, trees, flowers, and mushrooms. I would put everything I collected into a jar to bake and ferment in the sun. And being an adult back in Ashland after living in the corporate world of fashion I have decided to go back to my love of making potions. From my surroundings, farms, gardens, and parks, I gather organic material and then hand dye textiles into one of kind pieces of art. I do this in hopes of challenging what clothes are made of and how, challenging the world of fashion.

Live Music by JJ Joss, Acoustic Guitarist

JJ will once again grace The Landing at Ashland Art Center with her cover tunes of contemporary country, pop, and crossover music. Upbeat and melodic, you will be delighted to share in JJ’s love for music.
