News from Leah Mebane and Natural Earth Paints

Earth Paint - Leah Fanning Mebane

Earth Paint – Leah Fanning Mebane

Dear friends,

I have some super exciting news about my business, Natural Earth Paints! You probably remember 3 years ago when I started this business in my garage with just 2 natural paint kits. We’ve been slowly and steadily growing and have now filled 2 bedrooms, an outdoor workshop and our kitchen and have now created 15 products. We have lots of exciting things happening next year: our first trade shows, new international distributors wanting to take us on and six new eco-friendly art supplies in development! But we’ve reached a kind-of bottle-neck where we don’t have an inch of space left to grow in my home and also not enough income to rent a warehouse or hire employees or develop new products. 
 
It’s so hard to ask for help sometimes but I’m so excited about the upcoming possibilities for Natural Earth Paints that I’ve decided to take the plunge and reach out! I’ve just launched a fundraiser which will last for one month. Check it out and also check out our JUST released new video by Oneal Latimore here….

Auto Pop Mural on Display through July

 

Clatsop Community College Logo

Clatsop Community College students enrolled in the Spring term Basic Design class taught by CCC Art Instructor Kristin Shauck are exhibiting a five by eight foot acrylic mural entitled Auto Pop at Lum’s Auto Center in Warrenton. The mural has been up since June 14th and will be on display through the end of July.

The Basic Design course includes an overview of Modern Art movements, color theory, and the principles of design.  In a project pulling these concepts together, the students chose to create the Auto Pop mural as a service learning experience aimed at promoting dialogue between faculty, students, and community members, while integrating meaningful fine arts learning experiences beyond the classroom and directly serving the community creatively.  The students decided upon a very popular subject as their theme— the car.

Americans have had a love affair with the automobile for well over a century, and owning a car has become an essential part of the American Dream. Basic Design student Loretta Maxwell describes how this subject resonates with her own personal experience:  “I grew up in Los Angeles in the 1950s and 1960s when some of the best cars were made. Doing this mural made me very nostalgic.  I love those great classics.  I got my Learner’s Permit on the day I turned 15 and a half, and I’ve been driving ever since.”

Pam Lum, Dr. Lawrence Galizio, Loretta Maxwell, Rachel Fackler, Danielle Peterson, Maggie Young, Brooklynn Andrews, Tinamarie Lagerquist, and Kristin Shauck attend the opening reception for Auto Pop at Lum’s Auto Center in Warrenton.

The Pop Art style was a natural choice to express this subject.  Pop artists during the peak of this movement in the 1960s celebrated commonplace objects and people of everyday life, in this way seeking to elevate popular culture to the level of fine art. Basic Design student Rachel Fackler sums up the Pop art style as “a gateway to being colorful and being bold! The thick and thin lines of pure black really bring out the vibrancy of the color spectrum.” Famous Pop artist Robert Indiana characterizes this movement as “basically a U-turn back to a representational visual communication, moving at a break-away speed…Pop is a re-enlistment in the world…It is the American Dream, optimistic, generous and naïve.”

Working collaboratively is always an enriching experience as well as a challenge, as several of the Basic Design students reveal.   Danielle Peterson expresses her personal experience collaborating with her classmates in creating the mural, “I enjoyed researching the older cars and piecing the design together with my fellow peers. I found that many of us had similar connections with certain models of cars and we would share our stories while we painted. I learned many different techniques when painting this piece and I had a lot of fun mixing the various colors I had to use.” Danielle also describes her thought process in learning how to work within the assigned complementary, triad, and tetrad color schemes, “At first it was complicated trying to work with a limited color scheme. But when I got further along in the process and found that when I added white, black or other hues and values, the color range would expand even further and I wasn’t that limited after all.“  Brooklyn Andrews explains, “This mural has been super fun: I learned a lot about mixing colors and making them ‘pop.’ If I were asked to paint another one, I would have to say yes. This has been a great learning experience.”  Mckenzie Cokley also enjoyed the collaboration, “This was my first mural project and I think it turned out awesome. I would definitely want to do another one here soon!”

CCC administrators attending the reception on June 14th at Lum’s celebrating the mural’s unveiling commented on various aspects of the mural:  “It showcases America’s love of the road in vibrant color and is the perfect ode to one’s car,” said Kristen Wilkin, Dean of Workforce Education and Training.  “It is my pleasure to see all the art work created by our students,” said JoAnn Zahn, Vice President of Finance and Operations.  Tom Gill, Director of Institutional Research, described the mural as a “stunning exploration of color combined with iconic images.”

Participating students included:  Brooklynn Andrews, Mckenzie Cokley, Holly Eckhardt, Rachel Fackler, Jacki Hoard, Tinamarie Lagerquist, Gael Marin, Loretta Maxwell, James Misho, Danielle Peterson, Samantha Trotta, Adam Yaws, and Maggie Young.

Thanks to Lum’s Auto Center for providing this venue for the exhibition of the Auto Pop mural.

Ignite the Mind, Stir the Soul, Open the Heart… Boldly Create!

Welcome to Cammy Davis, Sue Springer and the Photographer's Gallery at Ashland Art Center!

We are delighted that new artists and art organizations continue to list with the Southern Oregon Artists Resource! The more, the merrier, as each new listing brings additional traffic to the sites, and this means more visits to everyone’s listings, blogs and other online presences of the wonderful artists, galleries and organizations that make up the fabulous art community of Southern Oregon – our raison d’être. This month we welcome ceramic/mosaic artist Susan Springer and contemporary artist Cammy Davis to the Visual Artists directory and the Photographer’s Gallery at Ashland Art Center to the Galleries, Art Groups and Organizations and Photography medium directories.

Completed and installed Compass Rose Mosaic

 

Many familiar with the local arts landscape will know Sue Springer’s name right away. Owner of the respected Illahe Studios and Gallery in Ashland, she creates ceramic tiles, wall art and sculptural mosaics in her on-site studio while representing the work of regional artists, with an emphasis on fine art home decor, artisan wares, furnishings and objets d’art in a variety of mediums. Illahe produces several annual group shows which showcase the work of artists in glass, mosaic and lighting. She also sells her work online at Etsy (find the link in her listing).

 

This year has been particularly busy for Springer. She was elected President of the Ashland Gallery Association for 2011, recently completed a long-awaited installation of public art, the Compass Rose Mosaic, at North Mountain Park Nature Center and, to round out her list of 2011 accomplishments, created a new website to represent her own work online. We encourage everyone to find the link in her listing, visit her new site, explore her image galleries and give her a boost in the search engines! She’s created her site using WordPress, so you’ll be able to subscribe to her updates. We’ll be sure to ask her if she’d like her posts to appear at Art Matters! as part of our community “Stream of Artistic Consciousness” so you can read her posts here as well. As always, we appreciate comments on all our posts, and we know she’ll appreciate comments which appear on her posts at Art Matters! too. Please leave her a congrat and maybe a happy New Year!

 

It’s less likely that you will recognize Cammy Davis, as she recently moved to Jacksonville to help her parents care for her aging grandmother. According to her Google profile…

Cammy DavisWhen I was in 2nd grade, my parents “dropped out of society.” They traded our middle class life for an Airstream travel trailer and 3 acres in the woods. We became hippies and lived off the land. My parents did not believe in television so we read books, raised animals and built tree forts and sword fern teepees for entertainment. I learned early on that if there was something I wanted, I needed to find a creative way to get it. My mom still talks about the time I decided I was ready for my first pair of high heels. I didn’t request that we buy a pair, I just went out to my dad’s workshop and tried to carve them out of a 4″ x 4″ piece of lumber. I won’t even pretend that they were pretty. But, if I want something, I still prefer to make it myself. In my creative endeavors, I have jumped from publishing poetry to creating jewelry, landscaping and sewing clothing and accessories. I am currently working towards my bachelors degree in Interior Design. Through it all, painting has remained my first love.

And a recent post on her very engaging blog, “My Search for a Creative Life”…

When I started this blog about two years ago, the idea was to figure out how to live a creative life, rather than returning to my work in escrow.  I wanted it to be an honest look at what it takes to build a creative business, if it’s possible, and the growth and learning that goes on during the process. I hoped that other artists would gain some insight and hopefully offer some as well.  Mostly I hoped that I would figure out a way to create a life from following my passion.

A wonderful contemporary artist, we welcome Cammy not only to SOAR, but to Southern Oregon, and hope you will do the same with a comment on this or one of her own posts! She has given us permission to syndicate her blog and several of her posts already appear here at Art Matters!, so search Cammy Davis and get to know her through her honestly written musings and experiences, hard knocks and victories. And of course new works and works in progress. She also has a few tutorials posted at YouTube, and we’ll see if we can add the link to her channel to her listing shortly.

Photographer's Gallery at Ashland Art Center

 

 

Most recently we were honored to receive a request from John Peterson and David Lorenz Winston to list the illustrious group of talented photographer members of the Ashland Art Center at SOAR. AAC’s photography group has its own gallery within the main gallery featuring the works of photographer members of the art center. This group is a great resource for photographers looking for local non-social-media (read: face to face contact) networking and support within their own specialty, as well as gallery space at AAC and possibly at the independent galleries owned and run by members. We highly recommend that area photographers, whether well established or emerging, longtime locals or new to the area, make contact to see how they may benefit from membership.  You can learn more about the current members of the Photographer’s Gallery in their niche page at the Ashland Art Center’s website – Find contact information and web links in their listing HERE.

 

We would like to express our gratitude to these newly listed members of the Southern Oregon Artists Resource for participating in our online “portrait” of the Southern Oregon arts community and wish you all a very creative and prosperous New Year!
