Gallerie Karon
The Female of the Species Part II

Feminine, Passionate, Exotic, Feline

Part II of our all-female artists exhibit opens October 2, 2020. No First Friday Art Walk is planned, but stay tuned!

We continue our diverse showing with one of a kind necklaces and earrings from local and California artists. We have added a rare group of antique Moroccan Wedding and dowry pieces. These tie to a group of vintage Afghani wedding attire, put together by Zahara. Unfortunately, she will not be able to share her middle eastern dances at Gallerie Karon at this time due to COVID restraints, but hopefully in the future.

Pegi Smith’s new allegorical mixed media paintings greet you as you walk through the front door.

Nancy Bardos has added an homage to Freya Stark, the very early female explorer. It’s a strong mixed media presentation on metal.

Jerri Cook shares two of her porcelain plaque portraits, a prominent actor from the movie Selma and beautiful rendition of Tony Morrison.

We are retaining our regular days and hours at the gallery.

We are open 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and closed Sunday and Monday. 

Schneider Museum of Art
Migrating Bodies: For(saking) Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

Co-curated by Jill Hartz, former executive director of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, University of Oregon, Richard Herskowitz, artistic and executive director of the Ashland Independent Film Festival (AIFF), and Scott Malbaurn, director of the Schneider Museum of Art.

Humans have always been on the move. From nomads to nation builders, we have sought a better life, however we’ve chosen to define that goal. The causes of migration and displacement– including climate change and its attendant famines, fires, and 500-year floods that are now happening yearly; war; religious persecution; slavery; and commerce– seem unending and are, if anything, growing more dire.

On View: August 6th, 2020 – October 10th, 2020
