August Featured Artist

“ Following the Circuitous Thread”

Mixed Media Paintings by Eve Margo Withrow –

August 2017

Art and Soul Gallery

Ashland, OR 

    “ I’m always curious to explore the edge that lies outside the box. From that perspective, I reflect on the essential feeling ingredients of an experience or place.  Many of my favorite and most exciting works are the result of finding imaginative solutions to things run amok. I play and adventure with my expressions. Following threads here and there, I enter the flow of my creative process; head and heart awake and dancing.”
 
Eve is an international award winning professional Artist and is part owner of Art and Soul Gallery in Ashland , Oregon.

Please join us on Friday August 4 from 5-8 pm for a festive evening of Fine Art, Music by Rick Millward, Conversation and some refreshing nibbles!

Wildland Creatures, New Stencil Designs

_DSC0031

I am excited to announce the Release of my New Stencil Designs…for StencilGirl!

IMG_0540

Let me tell you a little about them…

IMG_0545

My Wildland Creatures are a part of a new series that include the birds, fish and animals that I love to watch and include in my artwork. I hope that you will love to use my new designs in your art as well!

_DSC0039

These animals are a part of my life in the Pacific Northwest.

Each stencil design represents an animal that I love. I have even written legends to go with them to inspire you in your art making. You can read more about my Wildland Creatures on StencilGirlTalk 

_DSC0299

I have walked the fields where the horses and cattle roam, climbed over rocky cliffs where the rams once thrived, waded in the ocean water with the fish and watched the hawks fly.

IMG_0546

These stencil designs can be used as a focal point or a background… or both.

They are wonderful in a painting or collage or a page in your art journal. Pan pastels, distress inks, permanent inks and gesso are my favorite tools for stenciling.

The emblems that go with each creature symbolize their characteristics and the passage of time. I really enjoy mix and matching them with other stencils.

Please visit here to read more about them and visit here to see them in the StencilGirl Products Shop

That Time In Between

IMG_0347

Mandala with Blessing Sticks from Art Unraveled…

These are the days between midsummer and late summer. Here in my perch above the Klamath River the flowers are reaching as tall as they can before they go to seed.

IMG_0424

I am nestling in the way I always do after I travel… especially when I teach. I have been to Colorado where I taught with my dear friend Leslie Marsh in the vacation home of my other dear friend Hasty Pearl, (Laura Roberts). Such an inspiring setting with rugged cliffs above the jubilant singing Crystal River. And such inspiring students as they created with all of their hearts and soul. See photos of Crystal River book arts here.

And I taught in the mountains where I helped raise money for the wonderful Klamath Outdoor School… this is the land of blue-green spring water and ponderosa pines, long lush grass, wildflowers and butterflies. This workshop included nature walks and talks by my friend, Marjorie Glass, a wildlife biologist. We slept in a big yurt and the stars were amazing. Please see photos of "Nature in the Mind's Eye here.

And lastly I taught three workshops at the amazing Art Unraveled in Phoenix, Arizona where I was welcomed with open arms, encountered my first Monsoon and realized again just how strong the pull of art Is. Please see photos from my three workshops at Art Unraveled here.

In each place I got to spend time with old friends and new and be amongst other women who know how important it is to nourish themselves. 

One of the things I love the most about teaching is when I walk away from someones worktable and then return after awhile the amazing surprises I encounter!
