Bruce Barnes has traveled and painted in Oregon, California, Canada, and across Europe. His sketchbook, paints, and brushes are always part of his pack.

Bruce moved to the Rogue Valley in 2002, where he quickly joined the Rogue Valley art scene. He now paints en plein air with The Artists’ Workshop in Jacksonville, Ashland’s Urban Sketchers, The Rogue River Artists Group, and the OLLI watercolor SIG.

Dozens of his paintings are now displayed in homes and businesses across the country, with a few in Europe.

Featured Artist Linda Meerten

Photographer Linda Meerten loves the beauty that surrounds us and tries to show that in her work. As an opportunistic photographer she is seldom without her camera for stopping along the roadside to capture what she sees. She lives in the mountains of Southern Oregon where wildlife and scenery is abundant. Also a sculptor and oil painter, Linda studied art and art history in Europe.

Born in the Netherlands, Linda came to America as an infant and proudly became an American citizen in 2013 at a swearing-in ceremony held at Crater Lake National Park, part of a special event held across the country.  She loves hiking the many trails in the area, fishing the Rogue River and spending time with family.

New Members at Art du Jour

We extend a warm welcome to potter Susan Paul-Williams, as well the return of painter Connie Fribance as newest members of our cooperative.  Stop by the gallery to see the works of these two magnificent artists.

Bittersweet: Yosemite 20 years Later.

 

 Bobbi Murphy’s new show, Bittersweet: Yosemite 20 Years Later, opens on Friday, December 7th at The Photographers’ Gallery At The Ashland Art Center and will run through January.

 

Yosemite holds wonderful memories for me – of autumn walks in golden meadows and full moon nights along the Merced River listening to great horned owls call to their families on cold evenings. Tramping through spring meadows flooded with snow runoff, riotous with wild flowers.  John Muir walked here and helped create America’s second great National Park.

 

There is no denying the impact of climate change on the park: drought, fire, pine beetles have killed 129 million trees in California and Yosemite has not been spared. It is heartbreaking to see and experience while remembering how magnificent it was just a few short years ago. But the tourists come in crowds greater than ever.

 

Despite all that we have done to it, Yosemite is still a glorious, spectacular place that makes a heart sing, even in the midst of destruction and devastation. We are loving it to death and yet, somehow don’t love it enough to save it and ourselves.

The Shepherd’s Dream

A Study on the Transition of Life

Nora Costley, Watercolorist, shares her artistic evolution through self-discovery and the mystery of the universe. Nora is a world traveler and holds a BA in Fine Art from the University of New Mexico.  Her work has been displayed in the National Museum of Art in Washington, DC.  She currently resides in the Rogue Valley. 

She enjoys many forms of art including sculpture, traditional pottery making in Japan, Installation and Photography.  Even as a watercolorist, Nora feels an artist does not need to stick with the same subject or medium.  She prefers an artist’s creation to reflect the transient beings they are, and continue to demand an evolution as individuals.  She states…”for me art is a constant exploration and experimentation of self and the universe, which parallels the exploration of medium and processes.”  Also…”a driving force is art that stimulates personal power and freedom in myself and others.”  Her practice has evolved from that of discovering and resolving the internal, to decoding the world at large.  Often her ideas flow, and it’s not until a piece is complete, that it either is understood or not.  The universe is of great curiosity to her, but as with Nora’s artistic endeavor, she is satisfied with the mystery.

Options Partners with Josephine County Food Bank for Empty Bowls Event

The 12th Annual Empty Bowls event in Grants Pass, Oregon will again be held at Parkway Christian Center located at 229 NE Beacon Drive in Grants Pass on Monday, October 8th at 6:00 PM.  Guests choose a handcrafted bowl and then fill their bowl with gourmet soup and bread. The handmade bowl is theirs to take home as a reminder of hunger in our community.

Empty Bowls 2018

“Empty Bowls is a powerful reminder that, even amid the prosperity of our nation and our community, there are many people who struggle to feed themselves and their families,” says Kevin Widdison, director of the Josephine County Food Bank. “Join us as we reflect on our own good fortune even as we work toward helping those in need.”

Options has partnered with the Josephine County Food Bank for many years to serve people with poverty and hunger issues in our community. Josephine County is one of the most food insecure counties in all of Oregon. In fact, more than 16% of all Josephine County residents, and 25% of children don’t have adequate access to food.

The 2017 Empty Bowls Project was hugely successful with approximately 300 individuals in attendance. The event raised approximately $11,000…enough to make 55,000 meals! Local restaurants, numerous ceramic artists, and many volunteers help to make this annual event possible.

Our 2018 soup sponsors include Casa Amiga, The Laughing Clam, Twisted Cork, Wild River Brewing & Pizza, Ma Mosa’s, The Vine, Taprock Northwest Grill, Climate City Brewing Company, Powderhorn Café, Vinfarm, The Train Depot, and River’s Edge. Clayfolk, Rogue Community College Ceramics, and other local artists have generously donated their time and talent to make more than 250 beautifully handcrafted bowls for this year’s event.

    

Event sponsors are AllCare CCO, J. D. Fulwiler Insurance Company, First Interstate Bank, Banner Bank, and Evergreen Federal Bank.  Please join us for the 12th Empty Bowls event and help alleviate food insecurity in Josephine County. Learn more about how to keep our community healthy and see how YOU are making a difference!

Five Lizard Bowl by Nancy Yturriaga Adams,side view
Five Lizard Bowl by Nancy Yturriaga Adams

Nancy Yturriaga Adams is a renowned clay artist whose ceramic vessels are intricately designed with lifelike creatures and flora in natural colors. Art Presence Art Center was honored to admit her as a member in early 2018.

portrait of Nancy Yturriaga Adams, riding her horse on her Applegate Valley, Oregon ranch

Artist Statement

Pursuing an education in classical literature inadvertently led me to a ceramics class my first year of college but the truth is that I knew I was interested in the art of the making of things from the time I was a child. I always loved nature and all kinds of animals and plants. All I ever wanted to do was to saddle up my horse and ride out into the forest and watch the sky, the colors and have many adventures along the way. Today I still practice a simple, disciplined life balancing riding my horses on the ranch and on into the National Forest with hours in my studio.

People often ask me, Where do you get your ideas?! I smile to myself for I know well that the Muse comes quietly for those who wait in a disciplined way. Influenced as I am by Greco-Roman and Egyptian mythologies I find the Native American interpretation of life thru totem plants and animals to be the most comfortable. I so enjoy the studio life where the making shifts into a meditation offering relief from everyday cares and worries. I also value the many friendships I’ve made along the way and find that gratitude is essential for a happy, productive life.

Outside the Art Presence Art Center gallery, Nancy’s most recent exhibit is at the Racine Art Museum in Racine, Wisconsin  “Beasts:  Wild Animals in RAM’s Collection” Feb. 18-June 10, 2018. The museum’s director just confirmed that several of her pieces will be included in their permanent collection.  Her next showing here in Oregon will be at the Oregon Potters Association SHOWCASE at the Oregon Convention Center on April 27, 29, 29, 2018. www.oregonpotters.org

Nancy’s magnificent work speaks for itself, and the list of galleries and museums where her work has been shown tells the story of her recognition as a master ceramic artist.:

Yupo Curiosity

I’ve just finished some new work to hang the beginning of February at Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland, Oregon. My curiosity took me into the land of Yupo: A non-porous plastic like painting surface. I’ve always loved the spontaneity of working with flow, knowing that here is a potential for more layers. This trick on Yupo just melts the layer before because of the slick surface. Oh My! This may be a short lived adventure but I feel that old familiar tickle asking me “What If?”. Hmmmmmm……..
