Rogue Gallery Presents Capturing Beauty: Paintings by Sheri Dinardi , Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, and David Terry

       

     

 

Rogue Gallery New Exhibit and Reception

Main Gallery exhibit:

Capturing Beauty: Paintings by Sheri Dinardi , Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, and David Terry

January 11 – February 22, 2019
Reception Date: January 18, 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Last of Summer 18×24 oil on linen by David W Terry

Artists Sheri Dinardi, Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, & David Terry create luminous works in the time honored tradition of oil painting. Their paintings of people, structures, and landscapes beautifully capture a moment in time and the essence of the subject.

The Capturing Beauty exhibit features three artists who paint in the traditional oil medium. Creating figurative oil paintings require talent, training, skill, and perseverance. The process of creating an oil painting requires many hours work due to the slow drying time and the paint properties required in layering the colors. The paintings in this exhibit reflect the expertise of these three artists. They are rich in luminous colors and are of profound beauty. While many of the works are reminiscent of great paintings from the past, each of these artists has developed their own artistic style.

Jacksonville artist, Sheri Dinardi studied with Frank Covino where she honed her skills in Old Master oil painting techniques. She also trained with Dan Gerhartz, Michael Malm, and JoAnn Peralta. She has exhibited nationally and has won many awards for her paintings. Ilene Gienger-Stanfield has been painting for over twenty years and resides in Phoenix, OR. She teaches weekly figurative session, private lessons, and has taught workshops nationwide. She holds signature status with American Impressionist Society, Pastel Society of America, Northwest Pastel Society and master signature status with Women Artists of the West. David Terry is originally from Temple, Texas and now resides in Jacksonville. He is a member of the Salmagundi Club of New York, the Portrait Society of America, and the Oil Painters of America. He has won awards in two international contests sponsored by the Portrait Society of America. His work hangs in numerous public and private collections.

Refreshments from Harry & David will be served at the reception on Friday, January 18, 5:30 – 8:00 pm.

Photographers’ Gallery

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.

Rogue Impressions and Beyond, paintings by Silvia Trujillo

Silvia Trujillo paints the landscapes and scenery of Southern Oregon. Applied in oils, using an impasto technique, her paintings communicate mood with a sense of time by coloring the light and shadow of each season.  

Silvia exclaims, “I live, breathe, and sleep art.  Creating art is a way of life for me, and I consistently produce paintings that express a deep regard for nature.  Landscape painting is a natural extension of this love and it attracts me to the dramatic light that occurs during a storm, or at dawn or dusk, and my goal is to honor land, water, and sky in these works and help to create the need for preserving an area’s natural beauty.  I believe that my art appeals to those who share the same sentiments and to anyone with an appreciation of nature, color, and light.  As a painting/drawing instructor for over 25 years, it also brings me great joy to know that I’ve inspired and fostered expert work in many others over the years.  I believe that my art appeals to those who share the same sentiments and to anyone with an appreciation of nature, color, and light.”   

This exposition on display in our new location: 42 East Main Street, Ashland, OR.  For more information, call 541-941-0855, and follow us on Facebook.  Artwork displayed through May 2018.

First Friday Art Walk in Ashland- April 2017

Ashland Gallery Association Spotlight Exhibits – April 2017

Art and Soul Gallery

“The Wanderer” Oil Paintings by Diana Wright

Grab your keys and go….from a San Francisco luncheon to sun-drenched Cayucos and then to a cool, mist filled day in Bandon, Oregon, I have marveled at the endless beauty of the world.  The landscape renews us, brings us joy and hope in a time filled with anxious thoughts and feelings.  Yes, we are sorrowful at the shrinking of the natural world.  We stagger at the perils of over civilization, pollution, global warming, the shrinking of animal habitats, the acidification of the oceans, (to name a few), as they loom over our lives in an endless stream of fear.  However, the joy of creating seems to transcend my fear.  As I paint, I am in prayerful reverence for nature and I hope to communicate love, joy, and transcendent hope.

 

Shepherds Dream

“Grape Expectations” Watercolor paintings by Kay Myer

For artist Kay Myer, watercolors have always been her creative source, allowing her to explore the endless possibilities this medium allows. Passionate about the colorful, loose, interpretive styling her brushstrokes achieve, “Grape Expectations,” showcases her vivid watercolor images.

As an active member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, Kay has also won recognition in international art challenges and been taught by world famous watercolorist, Jean Haines.

Kay was born in Denmark and adopted by an American couple and lived her earlier years in Blodget and now the Rogue Valley, Oregon.

She is joined by the Mt. Shasta Artist/Singer/Songwriter, Joshua Jerue on guitar, toffee treats, together with additional surprises.  Join in on the fun, and register for our free monthly drawing.   For more information, see our event’s page and Kay Myer’s listings on Facebook, or call: 541-941-0855.

Artist as Poet

Who knew that so many artists are also poets (and the other way around!)? This month’s show at Gallerie Karon has more than 10 artist/poets!

We’ll feature Steve Dieffenbacher’s sketchbooks from his trail walks and new photographs paired with his poetry. Johan Bernstein will show his fantastic photographs from their recent trip to Jerusalem. Rebecca Gabriel will show her lovely portraits.  Both artists will incorporate new poetry.  Liz Shepherd presents new Sumi-e ink drawings with her own poems and translations of Zen poetry.

Of course there will be poetry books in our new poetry corner you can purchase and have signed.
