Show runs through February 25
th.

“My love of Oregon began about fifty years ago when we first experienced Oregon’s coast and lakes.  No matter where we travel in Oregon there are always interesting and beautiful sites that excite me to get out my watercolors and brushes to capture my feelings of inspiration.  My favorite areas in Oregon are the Coast, Southern Oregon and Eastern Oregon.  I also find having four seasons brings new inspiration through out the year.  I hope you find Oregon as interesting and beautiful as I do.”

A Retrospective

Pat Moore, (patmoorephotography.com) local Fine Art photographer, is constantly observing his surroundings and conceiving images that convey the essence of a place, or topic and tell a story.  He has a plan behind every image, using exposure techniques, careful composition, with special attention to subject matter.  Digital darkroom techniques are especially important to express Pat’s vision to create collages and photographic collections, enabling viewers to experience a moment in time, a particular emotion remembered dearly, or perhaps a place they long to be.

He is joined by the acoustic guitarist Coyote, in our new location: 42 East Main Street.  For more information, call 541-941-0855, and follow us on Facebook.  Artwork displayed throughout March, 2018.

Join us in a reception for Betty LaDuke February 2nd, 5-8 p.m. during the Ashland First Friday Artwalk. Show runs January 24th, 2017- February 28th, 2018.

“Enchanted Turtle Habitat” Playscape installed at Cantrall Buckley Park playground

– Ribbon cutting on Saturday, September 19 at 4 p.m. –

 

APPLEGATE, OR – A creative new playscape is being added to the playground at Cantrall Buckley Park in the Applegate Valley. The new Enchanted Turtle Habitat playscape will be officially opened to the public at a ribbon-cutting ceremony this Saturday, September 19 at 4 p.m. in the park. The playscape is centered around a concrete and tile turtle created by local artist Jeremy Criswell, who was hired to design and build the structure. The “habitat” also includes boulders and logs, and the whole playscape is designed for children to climb and play on.

 

The new area will also include a new bench, and a sign with educational information about the western pond turtle, which is native to the Applegate Watershed.

 

The playscape came about as a community service project by volunteers from the Applegate/Jacksonville cohort of the Ford Institute Leadership Program. The volunteers received leadership training over the past year, which was funded by the Ford Family Foundation, and delivered by staff from Rural Development Initiatives. Throughout the year-long program, the volunteers had training in leadership development, which culminated in the selection of a community improvement project. The volunteers designed the playscape and raised funds for the project, and the final product is being installed this week. The cohort members worked closely with the nonprofit Greater Applegate Community Development Corporation (GACDC) and the Cantrall Buckley Park Committee, to implement the project.

 

The Ford Foundation provided a $5000 grant for the playscape project. Additional funding for the Enchanted Turtle Habitat playscape was provided by local businesses and individuals.

 

The public is welcome at the ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, September 19 at 4 p.m.

 

About Jeremy Criswell

Jeremy Criswell is a sculptor and ceramic artist who has created mosaics for parks, playgrounds and other public spaces. Criswell says, “It is always a great honor to install a work of art, knowing that, in time, it will become part of the lives of the people who interact with the work. In the case of this turtle, I am hoping it brings joy to the children who play on and around it and to the parents who are watching their child’s exploration.”

 

Criswell’s work can be seen outside the Anne Basker Auditorium in Grants Pass, in the Scheffel-Thurston City Park in Jacksonville, at the Jackson County Expo in Central Point, at Oregon Hills Park in Medford, and in private collections. The turtle created for this project is made from steel reinforced concrete, hand made ceramic tiles, mosaics, rocks, and found objects.

2015 Call to Artists for Public Art Installation

St. Johns Main Street in Portland, OR is requesting proposals from established professional artists to create and install an original public art piece(s) that represents and invigorates the St. Johns community. This artwork will achieve a sense of place and wonder; it will speak of our unique identity and history, of our diversity and dreams. It will endure for many years through both its artistic integrity and structural durability, and it will complement the quality of life here.

St. Johns Main Street
2015 Call to Artists

Project Description

The St. Johns Main Street (SJMS) Design Committee is asking for proposals from established professional artists to install an original art piece(s) that reflects the history, diversity, life and aspirations of the St. Johns community. The artist(s) is required to engage the community, through research and dialogue, in the conceptual development phase (Phase I) of the project. The project should be appropriate for outdoor installation, able to withstand weather, foot traffic and curious hands. The area of the installation is the downtown St. Johns corridor (Lombard Street between St. Louis and Richmond), but the specific location will be determined by a) the artist’s final concept and b) the property owner’s approval. Projects by teams will be considered. Projects in multiple locations will be considered. All applicants must be Oregon residents.

Project Objective

Create an original public art piece(s) that represents and invigorates the St. Johns community. This artwork will achieve a sense of place and wonder; it will speak of our unique identity and history, of our diversity and dreams. It will endure for many years through both its artistic integrity and structural durability, and it will complement the quality of life here.

Projected Budget

$5,000 has been secured to fund the artist’s initial design and community engagement phase (Phase I). Once a final design is presented and approved, additional funds ($20,000) must be raised through grants, gifts, and crowd-funding sources (Phase II). While St Johns Main Street will steer the pursuit of these funds, the artist will be needed, and must be willing, to assist and actively participate in this part of the process.

Final design budget may not exceed $25,000 (including materials, installation, and artist time)

Phase I            Design and Community Engagement
Phase II          Fundraising

Community members are invited to visit 19 studios presenting the work of over 22 artists. This is a unique opportunity to meet artists, watch them demonstrate their crafts, get inspired, and buy art! Artists will be greeting the public in their studios from 10:00am until 4:00pm. Community members and visitors are invited to attend this unique, free, self-guided tour. All ages are welcome! Tour maps are available on line at www.roguegallery.org or at the Rogue Gallery & Art Center before and during the event.

Two installation artists, Marilyn Michele Kunkel and Brooke Nuckles Gentekos will be creating at the Rogue Gallery & Art Center during the weekend event.

Marilyn Michele Kunkel will create an interactive installation in the art studio at Rogue Gallery & Art Center on Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. She will transform the entire studio into an art environment using ordinary objects and materials to explore ideas of happiness. Instead of simply viewing the art, visitors will enter into the art and interact with it by adding elements to the art environment. There will be two entrances available for this installation, one through the gallery and an entrance from the street.

After experiencing one of Kunkel’s previous installations, an art student she wrote, “To paint with color is lovely, to paint with music is moving, to paint with words is deep, but to paint with ideas is awakening. I will never forget this art piece and will continue to ponder its meaning.” Her work can be viewed at www.marilynmichele.com.

Brooke Nuckles Gentekos will engage visitors with a multicolored, three- dimensional yarn installation on Sunday from 11:00 AM to 4:00PM. Gentekos and participants will have fun and make an environment filled with colorful yarn, ribbons, string and thread. These fiber materials will be hung from the ceiling to the 1100 square foot studio to create a 3D drawing in space.

“When all ages and diverse groups of people come together to create a beautiful work of art, it is a strong statement about humanity and hope,” Brooke Nuckles Gentekos.

Don’t miss this unique event that celebrates Medford visual artists. This VAST event will bring exposure to Medford’s artistic community, build awareness of visual artists and their working processes, and stimulate the arts economy throughout Medford.

This event is generously sponsored by Southern Oregon Subaru.

The Rogue Gallery & Art Center is the Rogue Valley’s premier non-profit community art center founded in 1960 to promote and nurture the visual arts in the Rogue Valley.

Call to Artists, Ashland Fire Station No. 2

The City of Ashland Public Art Commission is seeking an artist(s) to create site-specific original exterior public art for placement at the new Ashland Fire Station No. 2.  The Fire Station is located at 1860 Ashland Street.  This opportunity is open to established professional artists living in the Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana) and California.

 

In May of 2010 Ashland voters approved general obligation bonds, not to exceed $3 million to replace the 45-year old Fire Station No. 2.  Construction is expected to begin in early April and continue through September of 2012.

 

One half of one percent of qualifying City of Ashland projects to construct or purchase a public building is dedicated to public art (AMC 2.29.180).  A selection panel, separate from the Public Art Commission will be formed to evaluate the proposals received from artists (AMC 2.29.100).  The panel will forward their preferred proposal as a recommendation to the City Council for final approval.  The selected artist will receive a maximum commission of $15,000 to realize their work.
