Come Into My Studio! October 13th & 14th, 11-5PM – Dana Feagin Art

 

 

Stop in and see me, and the other amazing artist spaces, during the Ashland Open Studio Tour from 11AM-5PM this Saturday and Sunday. I will be painting, chatting with visitors, and showing off my mini studio remodel which reclaimed a storage space to make room for my expanded bunny family. Yes, I am a frequent foster failure and now share my space with five lagomorphs! Original artwork, prints, cards and Kat’s and my book “Love Rhymes with Everything; animal ruminations through poetry and paintings” will be available for purchase with all proceeds benefitting Sanctuary One. Maps of all artist locations are available online and at all Ashland galleries. This event is free to the public and a fun way to spend the day – even if you just visit a couple studios.If you complete an attendance card and leave it at the last studio you visit, you will be entered to win a raffle for 2 free tickets to A Taste of Ashland in the spring or $100 off local art!

International Rabbit Day & Shelter Bunny Spay/Neuter Fund Donor Match

For International Rabbit Day, Saturday, September 22nd, we have a donor match, dollar to dollar up to $500 for donations made to the Friends of the Animal Shelter Bun Fund! These funds ensure that all rabbits coming into the Jackson County Animal Shelter as strays and surrenders are spayed or neutered prior to going into adoption. This helps more rabbits stay in their new homes as behavioral issues are lessened, they are easily litter box trained, and female rabbits avoid common reproductive cancers, as well as unwanted litters of baby bunnies every month. Help us grow the Bun Fund and take advantage of this generous match.

Ashland Open Studio Tour – October 13 & 14th, 2018

I am back on the Ashland Open Studio Tour again this year! Come by and visit me in my home studio, the weekend of October 13th and 14th, from 11-5PM. It’s also my bunnies’ home, so if you are allergic to rabbits, be forewarned. However, some of my work will be outside on my patio. All sales proceeds from my open studio will be donated to Sanctuary One, a care farm in the Applegate Valley. Maps are now available at local galleries and will also be available online before the event.

Art & Soul Gallery Featured Artist for October – First Friday Event, October 6th, 5-8PM

Join Kat von Cupcake and me during Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk for a celebration of the animals at the “Love Rhymes with Everything” Art Show on October 6th from 5 – 8PM!

 

This show features a mix of original paintings & framed prints paired with poetry by Kat von Cupcake, written from the animal’s perspective – as well as our book with the same title, published by local boutique publisher, Ashland Creek Press.

 

The opening reception includes select poetry readings and discussion about the animals behind the artwork at 6:30PM. Kat and I will also be available to personalize books – which would make the perfect holiday gift for the animal lover in your family!  And, of course, there will be wine and snacks too.

 

100% of sales proceeds from this show will be donated to Sanctuary One, a non-profit care farm & animal sanctuary in Jacksonville, OR. Sanctuary One t-shirts and sweatshirts will also be available for purchase during First Friday.

 

This show runs through October 29th if you are unable to make it in for First Friday.
