Hanson Howard Gallery

40th Anniversary: Works from the Collection of Hanson Howard Gallery

2019 is our 40th anniversary and that has us feeling like taking a trip down memory lane. Over the years, the gallery has amassed a healthy collection of exceptional regional artists who have at some point been represented by us. Was there an artist that you loved and no longer see at the gallery? Maybe you wish you had collected one of their works.  Now you may have a second chance.

Join us in February for an exhibition of works from the Hanson Howard Collection made available for purchase at original prices, maybe even with some flexibility as we may have held onto a little too much work….who can blame us?!

Show runs February 1st – 26th.  Opens First Friday, February 1st, 5-8 pm.

Photographers’ Gallery

Featuring Debra Harder

Debra Harder’s new show, The Comforts of Home, opens on Friday, February 1st at The Photographers’ Gallery At The Ashland Art Center.  

Photographing in the comforts of home on cold winter days is one of Debra’s favorite things to do.  She enjoys creating still life scenes reminiscent of old paintings.  These images include some of her beloved possessions such as her collection of English White Ironstone.  The natural light streaming in from nearby windows is all that is needed to “paint” the items being photographed.  Debra’s still life images truly reflect her personal style not only in photography but also in her home.

Shepherd’s Dream

“Pictorial Lullabye” Paintings by Lindy Kehoe

Lindy Kehoe’s fantastical illustration style is its own mythos. This Pittsburgh native received her B.F.A in 2001 at Ohio University. Her adventurous spirit led her to the West Coast in 2005, where she began exhibiting with the Visionary Artist Community. She has been living on the Rogue River in S. Oregon with her California-born husband who has been a deep inspiration to her work. Landscapes depicting dreamy characters and animals can be seen throughout her paintings.  Lindy works in a variety of mediums, including oils, acrylics, ink and watercolor, as well as, graphite.  Her intention of creation is steeped in the celebration of the child-heart wonder.  Lindy also has expertise in live painting during her exhibitions and this month is no exception. 

She says of her work…”My work is inspired by serendipity, a momentary feeling of interconnected magic, that often feels like a dream.  I am motivated to create images that bring peaceful energy to the viewer, a place of remembrance, a place of innocence.  The Oracular tendency keeps me fascinated by the mystical process.” 

She will be joined by a special musician of her choice and a foodie to round out our February event.

Shades of Blue:  Dyeing with Indigo

Studio Artist Shared Exhibit, “Shades of Blue,” features Marta Marthas, Jo Ann Manzone, Peggy Biskar, Janine Twining and Gayle Erbe-Hamlin.

This group of studio artists at Ashland Art Center share a passion for textile design and using natural dyes, especially Indigo. They explore multiple ways of using Indigo hues in their textile art.

Botanical sources of the blue dye, Indigo, have been used for thousands of years by people of many cultures to color natural fibers. This exhibit will demonstrate the wide color range that can be achieved with natural Indigo dyes and outline the process used to dye with Indigo plants. Handmade garments and textile wall art pieces dyed with Indigo will be featured.

Featured Gallery Artist: Jennifer Anne Nelson

Show: Freed from the Halls of Amenti

Medium: eco oil paint, soldering iron, ink

 

Jennifer Anne holds a B.A. degree from UC Berkeley in Art Practice, and is currently living in southern Oregon where she is a gallery artist at The Ashland Art Center. Her artworks investigate the mysteries transcribed in ancient legends, working in partnership with the materials to allow archetypes, symbols, and wild landscapes to emerge.

Kindred Spirits 2019 Winter Art Classes and Workshops

     2019 Winter Art Classes and Workshops

Happy New Year to all of you creative souls!  We have moved some things around at Kindred Spirits and I have taken over part of the space as my studio/workshop where it will be much more convenient to teach art classes and celebrate your creations through art walks and events. What I want to accomplish, through my classes is not so much that you look at your creation to reach your ideal of perfection, but through the creative process, find your soul, see what amazing gift you have been blessed with and through that, share with the rest of the world. (Who knows what changes we can make). I’m offering but a catalyst and a space to move forward with this in mind.
Below is a list of some of the classes and workshops we will be having as well as a series of Sumi-e classes on Wednesday evenings and some mornings. Also Thursday evenings are, “Random Acts of Art,”-open studio style.

You can also register for a class on-line by going to www.Kindredspiritsartalewine.com website, go to “Class Registration,” and sign up there. 

Sumi-e
Translated, ‘Black Ink-Painting,” is where art and art of living come together.  In these classes, you will explore the simplicity and spontaneity of the essence of nature.  In this painting-method, as in Zen practice, reality is expressed by reducing it to its pure bare form.  You will find this practice extremely therapeutic and heart calming.

There are two major events at Gallerie Karon this month. Join us for the First Friday Art Walk January 4, 2019. We’ll be opening our traditional show East Meets East celebrating the start of the New Year in so many Asian countries. (It’s The Year of the Boar!) There are a multitude of new things to explore, some from exotic Afghanistan and Tibet. 

The main thing we are excited about is the Grand Opening of our new addition –

“The Feathered Wing.” This area features two rooms – one filled with small versatile pieces of furniture and art. The second room is a striking mix of Oriental furniture, antiques and icons. (The 41/2 ft. Thai Buddha in our ads is only one of the outstanding pieces.) We’re planning live music, munchies and many surprises – come help us celebrate!

Paula Fong – Watercolor and Pen & Ink

Paula R. Fong received her B.S. in Biology from Denison University and her M.S. in Forest Ecology from the College of Forestry, Oregon State University. Her twelve years as a soil scientist and ecologist with the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service gives her a unique perspective of the art in nature.  Paula’s primary medium is watercolor with pen and ink. She has illustrated numerous scientific publications, plant and wildlife posters, trail guides, and interpretative trail signs. She lives on a mountaintop in rural Southern Oregon.

“I have been fortunate to spend much of my career and recreation time exploring nature. It is fascinating to examine all the details, above and below ground, up close and from a landscape perspective. Every square inch of our natural world contains something artistically beautiful and scientifically interesting. I like to pick out one aspect of the environment and hold it up for inspection, with all its imperfections and variation. By changing perspective, focus, season and habitat, I have an infinite palette, and an unlimited source of inspiration.”  Paula Fong

Leland Iron Works Artist Residency Opportunity

Leland Iron Works Artist Residency

located in Oregon City, OR.
Leland Iron Works Artist-in-Residency ProgramResidencies for students and emerging artists at Lee Kelly's Leland Iron Works
The residency is run in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest College of Art on the property, home, and studio of sculptor, Lee Kelly. We have mainly had residents local to Portland apply and we are hoping to branch out and get applicants outside of our area.
There are 5 funded ($2500 stipend) month long residencies for mid-career and established artists and 4 free month long residencies for emerging artists.
View the call for artists and application here.
More details:

The Residency at Leland Iron Works 2019

Located just east of Oregon City, Leland Iron Works is the home and studio of sculptor Lee Kelly and his family. For years, Leland Iron Works has been home to artists, activists, musicians, writers, climbers, architects, poets, and dancers. The residency at Leland Iron Works is an expansion of that legacy. With a generous grant from the Ford Family Foundation and with the continued support of the Kelly family and PNCA, Leland Iron Works will provide one month residencies to professional Oregon artists and PNCA students and alumni.

There are two categories of Residencies to which you can apply, read the descriptions carefully to best understand which category you fit into and apply accordingly.

Residency for emerging visual artists, writers and musicians. (4 per year)

You may or may not be a student to apply in this category. We are also able to extend this opportunity to artist practicing outside of the visual arts category so you may apply as an established writer or musician. Selected artists will receive one month long residency session at no cost.

Residency for Mid-Career/ Established Artists

(5 per year)

To apply in this category, you must be a practicing visual artist currently producing works of art. You must be a full-time resident of Oregon for at least 36 months prior to the application deadline and remain a resident through the duration of the grant period. You must be 30 years of age or older at the time of application. You must provide evidence, through your C.V. of seven or more years of active professional participation in your medium. You may not be enrolled in a degree-seeking program, either part-time or full-time.
Selected artists in this category will receive a one month long residency session at no cost along with a stipend of $2500 made in two installments.

All residents are required to give a slide lecture at PNCA at the end of their stay as well as to create a one-day workshop at LIW or participate in a day of class visits on campus. Residents are also asked to participate in the annual residency show.

THE DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR 2019 IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH

Background

A partnership between venerable Portland artist, Lee Kelly and the college, PNCA’s Leland Iron Works Artist-in-Residency Program awards five month-long residencies to practicing Oregon artists and four residencies for students and emerging artists at Leland Iron Works, Kelly’s long-time home, studio, and rustic sculpture garden.

The goal of the LIW Residency Program is to support and invest in practicing and emerging artists whose work will impact Oregon’s cultural landscape. A one-month residency at LIW provides these artists with the time, space, and opportunity to take their work to the next level and to experiment with material and processes in a uniquely Oregonian environment. Residents will share their work with younger artists through artist talks, classroom critiques, and possible collaborations.

Fast Facts

There will be nine month-long residencies awarded each year, five to established Oregon artists (with more than 7 years of demonstrated art practice; non-students), and four to emerging Oregon artists (can be students or non-visual artists such as writers or musicians).
Established artists will each deliver an artist talk at PNCA and/or participate in a classroom critique. Each established artist awarded a residency will receive a stipend of $2500. Emerging artists will each deliver a lunchtime lecture on their residency at PNCA.

The Leland Iron Works Residencies provide dedicated time, space, and solitude for artists to reinvigorate their creative practice. It is a rugged, independent, and highly customizable experience and offers facilities including 24-hour access to an 8’x15’ residential studio, and outdoor workspace that align with Kelly’s ethos of having as minimal an impact on the land as possible.
The residency can coordinate access to additional art-making facilities for residents through the labs, workshops, and studios of PNCA, including sculpture, woodworking, metalworking, digital printing, and photography studios, as well as to one of the largest printmaking studios on the west coast. Residents will also have access to the PNCA library, one of the largest and most comprehensive fine-arts libraries in the region.
This residency is supported in part by a generous grant from The Ford Family Foundation.

ABOUT LELAND IRON WORKS

Since 1963, the five-acre property and “great experiment” known as Leland Iron Works has been Lee Kelly’s studio and home. Previously a sawmill and dairy farm, LIW is a direct link to the earliest days of Oregon’s history. Since the 1960s, it has provided art studios for writers, architects, and other artists who come to the property to work or find quiet. In 1970, it was designated an artist colony.
