BUZZ! New Bee City USA Mosaic Unveiled in Talent

Have you seen the new mosaic

that was just unveiled in Talent?

Within the 32-foot-long mosaic simply titled “Talent: Bee City, USA” are tens of thousands of pieces and the efforts of more than 100 volunteers who worked for the past year and a half, according to Talent artist Karen Rycheck, who wore a purple “beehive” wig Saturday morning at the Talent Commons near City Hall, joining city officials in celebrating the completion of the 18-month project.  “It’s very much the community’s work,” Rycheck said. “I facilitated it, but I didn’t make it.” Photo by Andy Atkinson

Winning Playwrights Announced for ANPF 2019

Ashland New Plays Festival Announces Winning Playwrights for ANPF 2019

https://www.ashlandnewplays.org/

Four new plays chosen for annual Fall Festival supporting new works for the stage

More info: https://www.ashlandnewplays.org/

Ashland, Oregon – In its 28thseason, Ashland New Plays Festival will present four playwrights’ new works at its flagship annual event ANPF 2019 from October 16–20 in Ashland at the Unitarian Center, 87 Fourth Street.

“I’m excited about our four winning plays and can’t wait to share them with audiences in October,” ANPF’s Artistic Director Kyle Haden said, “This was the deepest pool of finalists we’ve had in my tenure at ANPF, but these four plays stood out. The stories are all very different, but are all well-crafted and will stick with you.”

The ANPF 2019 winners are:

Starter Pistol by Michael Gotch

Michael Gotch for Starter Pistol

Michael Gotch for Starter Pistol

Synopsis: Deer season. Somewhere in a dying small town of Brave New America, an unsung mother, wife and breadwinner is making sure she and her family have enough venison chili to survive the approaching winter. But when a stranger comes to dinner, can they survive the secrets buried in their past and the reckoning to come?

Michael Gotch is a playwright, actor, director and teacher who lives in Delaware. He is a founding member of The REP, the professional resident company at the Roselle Center for the Arts at the University of Delaware, where he also teaches and has directed, written and performed in over 50 productions since its inaugural season. In addition to Starter Pistol’s selection at ANPF 2019, it was a semifinalist for both the 2019 Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Conference and the 2019 Blue Ink Playwriting Award. It will have a workshop and reading this fall at Westport Country Playhouse’s 2019 New Works Circle and will receive its world premiere in February of 2020.

Pelicans by David Johnston

David Johnston for Pelicans

David Johnston for Pelicans

Synopsis: Four men are gathered at the beach: a father, two adult sons and one grandson. They drink beer, crush cans, birdwatch and argue about global warming. They are awaiting the arrival of their cousin Margaret. She comes, carrying a beer in her purse and dragging an oxygen tank across the sand, setting in motion an absurd, dark comedy about death, family and home.

David Johnston is an award-winning playwright, librettist and screenwriter based in New York City. His plays and operas have been performed and read at the New Group, Moving Arts, Washington National Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and more. He is a member of Actors Equity, Dramatists Guild, BMI Librettists Workshop, ASCAP, the Actors Studio’s Playwright/Director’s Workshop, Charles Maryan’s Playwrights/Directors Workshop, and is an alumni artist of American Lyric Theatre.

Tira Palmquist for The Way North

Tira Palmquist for The Way North

Synopsis: When a lost, cold and very pregnant young woman stumbles on to her rural homestead in the Minnesota wilderness, Freddy Hansondoesn’t hesitate to take her in. It’s the right thing to do, and as the county’s former Sheriff, Freddy has dedicated her life to protecting and serving others. But when her new guest turns out to be a Sudanese refugee making a run for the Canadian border, what it means to protect and to serve becomes a more complicated, and far more dangerous, question.

Tira Palmquist is known for plays that merge the personal, the political and the poetic. Based in Irvine, California, she teaches creative writing at the Orange County School of the Arts. She is a member of the Playwrights Union, the Anteaus Theater’s Playwrights Lab and the Dramatists Guild. She also works as a director and dramaturg, including at Seven Devils Playwright Conference, where she first developed The Way NorthThe Way North was also a finalist for the 2019 Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, the 2019 Blue Ink Playwriting Award, an honorable mention on the 2019 Kilroys List, and was part of the Pioneer Theatre Company’s 2019 Play-by-Play New Play Reading Series.

The Night Climber by Joshua Rebell

Joshua Rebell for The Night Climber

Joshua Rebell for The Night Climber

           

Synopsis: When a #MeToo op-ed piece about his affairs with female students goes viral, a beloved Ivy League college professor faces an impossible dilemma: save his job by coming clean, or save his relationship with his daughter, whose future is at risk over his admission of one particular long-ago affair—her mentor.

Joshua Rebell is a New York City based playwright and screenwriter. He is thrilled to be returning to ANPF – where his play Omission was a winner in 2012. Some of his other plays include Embraceable You (The Tamarind Theatre, Los Angeles), Gatsby in Hollywood (The Met Theatre, Los Angeles), Black Tie Affairs (The Met Theatre), and Preying On Puritans (Sacred Fools, Los Angeles). Additionally, his plays have received readings and workshops with Capital Repertory Theatre, the Ensemble Studio Theatre-L.A., and the Dorset Theatre Festival. Rebell is a graduate of Dartmouth College, a Stowe Story Labs alum, and a member of the Writers Guild and the Dramatists Guild.

The winning playwrights will travel to Ashland for the festival week with receptions, rehearsals, a playwriting workshop, and other festivities that culminate with dramatic readings of their plays.

ANPF offers the unique opportunity for playwrights to develop their previously unproduced works by providing skilled directors and world-class actors, many from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University’s Theatre Department, under guidance from ANPF’s artistic team and ANPF Host Playwright Beth Kander. Talkbacks with audiences follow each performance.

“The week I spent in Ashland [at the Fall Festival] was one of the best weeks in my life as a playwright,” said two-time ANPF-winning playwright Stephanie Alison Walker, “From the moment my play was selected for the festival, I felt like I was in good hands. Our team beautifully brought my play to life. The audiences were such careful listeners and so committed to sharing feedback. I left with more confidence in my play and many more friends than when I arrived.”

Ticket sales for ANPF 2019 will open to the public in September. ANPF members receive advance access and discounts on tickets. Visit www.ashlandnewplays.org to learn more about the Fall Festival and ANPF membership benefits. A special note to playwrights: script submissions for consideration at next year’s ANPF 2020 will open on July 15, 2019.

ANPF also sincerely congratulates the twelve finalists, listed below:

Carol Sharp has been an artist since childhood. Professionally she has expressed her talent for art and design through her vocation as an interior designer. Over the years she has also pursued many different art forms including painting, collage, ceramics, and scrimshaw. For the past 10 years she has been designing jewelry. Her husband, Bob, is a silversmith and lapidary artist and together they have created an extensive line of handcrafted jewelry. Carol’s unique specialty is knitted and crocheted wire jewelry. She loves choosing the ingredients for each piece using gemstone nuggets, crystal beads, shells, pearls and many other natural elements.

“Sharing my love for art is exciting.” Carol writes. “I teach classes in crocheted and knitted wire jewelry and my husband, Bob, teaches silversmithing.  We both really enjoy the teaching process and our students bring us new ideas and perspectives, keeping our creations fresh and on trend.”

Guest Artist Charity Hubbard in Salon through July

Charity Hubbard writes that the regular exercise of painting from life enables her to better capture life, light and a truer sense of atmosphere, even when painting from life is not possible.

With a background in commercial art, she is trained in perspective and drafting, has illustrated by commission for architects and builders and rendered technical yet artistic architectural illustrations in a variety of mediums.  Her enjoyment of architectural elements is reflected in many of her paintings as well.  Current art pursuits gravitate towards fine art oil paintings of people, landscape and architecture and teaching.  She is also a member of Southern Oregon Society of Artists.

Ashland Art Center

“Second Chances” featuring Linda Dixon

“Terrene Oneiric” featuring Aaron Taylor

Ashland Art Center represents over 70 artists in our gallery, working studios and our print, clay and photography co-operatives.  This month we will be featuring two artists whose shows will consist of mixed media works. 

Linda Dixon’s Show, “Second Chances,” explores the use of found objects paired with drawing, painting, collage and textures.  Linda’s pieces are developed around mundane objects, re-imagined and repurposed in mulit-dimensional environments. 

Aaron Taylor delves into multimedia painting and serigraph in his show, “Terrene Oneiric,” where he explores abstract line in relation to landscape and involves intuitive exploration of color and composition. Imaginative and dreamlike, this new body of work is intended to communicate a surreality for the viewer to experience in their own way.

Jennifer Davis with be our musical guest and Platt Anderson Cellars tasting room at Ashland Art Center will be pouring local wines and beer.

Hanson Howard Gallery

Jimmie Nord, sculpture & Élan Chardin Gombart, paintings

Show runs July 5th – 30th

Opening Reception: July 5th, 5-8 pm

Jimmie Nord, an artist from Northern California, works out of his studio/garage in Eureka, CA. He works mainly in wood and metal. His work is a playful look into construction and the tools and equipment that are used. He pulls his ideas from past work experiences such as construction and working with the U.S Forest Service. Currently, Jimmie is a lecturer at Humboldt State University teaching 3D and 2D Foundations, Professional Practices, Ceramics, and Special Topics in Sculpture. He is also a board member of Morris Graves Museum of Art.

Élan Chardin Gombart received her BFA in visual design from the University of Oregon in 1995 via a circuitous route that included studies at The Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR, Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and The University of New Mexico. Élan is a partner at Hanson Howard Gallery.

The intuitive process and the visceral nature of visual language remain at the core of Élan’s creative practice.  Her most current paintings present dense layers of colors, textures and gestural marks with graffiti-like silhouettes of people and animals. They play with the age old past time of leaving our marks on walls.

“It took me forever to find my Quetzal”  Monoprints by Marcy Greene

Due to the July 4th holiday we will be postponing our artist reception to Friday July 12th from 5-7 pm, but the art will be on display through all of July.

Marcy Greene’s process of creating art is a mysterious journey. She has come to revel in the wonder of listening in different ways – waiting for an image to reveal itself. Getting it “right” or “beautiful” is never the goal. The Muse is put off by artificial judgments. Creating art is a leap of faith.

Marcy Greene has been living, writing and painting in the Rogue Valley since 1981. Over time, she has come to revel in the wonder of seeing and listening in different ways–waiting for who or what shows up on the page, canvas or boards, to play. “Getting it right”, or “Making it Beautiful” shuts her down. She resorts to trickery; turning an artwork upside down; cutting a poem in half; fooling the ego to get it out of the way. Marcy will use anything at her fingertips; adding layers and layers of color to be scraped off, sanded and repainted. Her goal is to embrace a spirit of playfulness; a space expansiveness, no judgment, a place of no mistakes. You can find more of her artwork and studio space at The Ashland Art Center.

Devitt winery will be pouring a selection of their delicious wines from 5-7 pm, be sure to make it down for a sip!

Federal Funding For Cultural Arts Agencies Update

Dear Arts Advocate,

On June 25, the U.S. House strongly rejected President Trump’s budget request to eliminate both the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) by approving $167.5 million in funding for fiscal year (FY) 2020! This is an increase for both agencies of $12.5 million over the FY 2019 funding level of $155 million.

The bill now heads to the U.S. Senate for possible consideration (the Senate may also take up their own version of this appropriations bill).

Why Is This Important?

This is the third year in a row that the Trump administration has proposed a termination of both the NEA and the NEH in his budget proposal to the U.S. Congress. The past two years, Congress has rejected this request and moderately increased funding for the cultural agencies. This year, the House is sending an even stronger message of the importance of arts funding by increasing the appropriation by $12.5 million.

The funding increase matches the 2019 Arts Advocacy Day ask, which would help broaden access to the cultural, educational, and economic benefits of the arts and to advance creativity and innovation in communities across the United States. This also follows public witness testimony Americans for the Arts President and CEO Robert Lynch gave before the Interior Subcommittee in February, asking for the cultural agencies to be funded at $167.5 million, as well as a Dear Colleague letter circulated by Reps. Chellie Pingree (D-ME) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY)–asking for the same amount of funding for the NEA and NEH–signed by a record-number (184) of members of Congress.

We are hopeful that the Senate will follow the House’s lead in expanding funding for the NEA and NEH. We’ll be keeping close watch over every step of the appropriations process in case any threatening actions surface. Stay tuned for more updates after the July 4th recess!

Ensuring Oregon’s Arts and Culture Are Protected

Hello Advocates,

We have good and bad news this week as some major legislation we’ve been advocating for has passed, but other important bills are hanging in the balance.

Most of our legislative work is contained in the larger omnibus budget and program changes bills that are assembled and passed in the last few days of session. If the Legislature does not resume its business before June 30th, the date by which the body must adjourn—many of our priorities might be lost. Right now, there’s not much we can do since the political breakdown is occurring between the governor and the legislative leadership.

In good news, the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Oregon Arts Commission budgets were passed. Both agencies are funded at the governor’s recommended levels. We are working to find other ways to cover growing administrative costs estimated by agency leadership that were not approved and thus will impact the grant budget. Other good news—the House passed a tax credit package yesterday that includes renewal of the tax credit and extension of the special assessments for historic preservation. But this still needs to be approved by the Senate.

These bills were all moving along positively, so if the legislature resumes business, we expect good results:

— Renewal of the Cultural Trust tax credit for 6 years
— Extension of special assessments for historic preservation for 2 years
— 5 capital projects targeted for lottery bonding or General Fund contributions (Oregon Nikkei Center, Patricia Reser Center for the Arts, Cottage Theatre, High Desert Museum, and the Lincoln City Cultural Center)
— Lifting the expiration of license plate revenue for marketing of the Trust

If you’ve been an advocate or used your voice in any way this year, THANK YOU. This year’s work in Salem is evidence that our Coalition and its supporters are crucial in ensuring Oregon’s arts and culture are protected. Please stay tuned for more news in the coming days. 

Thank you.
