John and Robin Gumealius combine ceramic, wood and metal to create sculpture that is inspired by their natural environment. They commune with their surroundings – speaking to birds is commonplace. Stories emerge and “Together, we make something better than either of us could make apart.

Michael Williams celebrates the human form by mixing everyday sights such as graffiti, flowers, leaves, clouds and etc. encouraging us to look with softer eyes at the world and people around us.

Established in 1979, Hanson Howard Gallery exhibits fine contemporary art by both established and emerging artists of the Pacific Northwest. Monthly exhibitions encompass painting, sculpture, original prints and ceramics with a diversity of styles and media. We are located next to the Standing Stone at – 89 Oak St. – one block from the O.S.F. theaters.

Studio A.B. Celebrates 15-Year Anniversary

The trains were still running, and things were otherwise pretty quiet on A Street when Ann DiSalvo and Bruce Bayard landed in the JEGA art complex and started Studio A.B in 1998. While Ann had already established the Pomegranate drawing group, annual exhibits of nudes began shortly after moving in. In 2000, Bruce gave up painting in favor of creating art on the computer.
Also in that time, Ann began a long association with the street painting community in Medford and Grants Pass. Studio A.B took on production and editing of the Ashland Gallery Guide in 1999 and 2000. Bruce did design for seven years, while Ann continues to edit that publication. Bruce created two series’ of handmade books, a 1000-image series and accompanying book and blog, “The Weekly Press,” which has morphed into a time-base video presentation.  Art from various stages of these fifteen years are on display throughout the month.

Duo Flamenco (Grant Ruiz and Terry Longshore) perform during the First Friday Artwalk from 5 to 8 pm
