Shepherd’s Dream

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.

BREAKING NEWS: NEA Receives Funding Increase!

We have breaking news out of Washington, D.C. today.  Congress has released their final funding plan for FY 2018, and it is great news!

Congress is proposing to fund the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) each at $152.8 million. This is a funding increase of $3 million to support more direct grants and expand access to creative arts therapies for the military.

This final budget is in stark contrast to a year ago, when the Endowments were facing a proposed termination by the President — the first ever!  Since then, our #SAVEtheNEAcampaign has togetherBREAKING NEWS: NEA Receives Funding Increase! resulted in hundreds of thousands of calls, emails, local op-eds, expanded research, newspaper ads, and office visits.

Your advocacy, your persistence, and your time has made a difference. Congress has now decided to invest more funding into the arts.

This support from members of Congress in both parties is a testament that the arts are bipartisan.

NEA grant money is distributed to all 50 states and U.S. territories, and 65 percent of NEA grants goes to small and medium-sized organizations.More, over 40 percent of NEA-supported efforts are in high-poverty neighborhoods.

Communicating this important work has led to the third consecutive year of funding increases for the NEA. It is also the second time in a row that a Republican-led Congress has reversed a request from President Trump to cut our cultural agencies’ funding.

In fact, in the budget plan released today, none of our nation’s arts and cultural agencies incurred a budget cut. All of them received funding increases for this year (see chart below).

What’s Next

Today and tomorrow, the House and Senate are expected to vote on this agreement, and the President is expected to sign it into law. This will bring a final close to FY 2018—a long and bumpy roller coaster ride, and delivered 5 months late.

Going forward, both Endowments received that same termination proposal in the new budget request for FY 2019. However, the year is already off to a great start. Last week, the

Congressional Arts Caucus co-Chair Rep. Louise Slaughter inspiring the 2013 Arts Advocacy Day attendees!  Remember her full remarks here.

co-chairs of the Congressional Arts Caucus, Reps. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and Leonard Lance (R-NJ) led a bipartisan letter calling for “at least $155 million” in FY 2019.

For the fifth consecutive year, that annual “Dear Colleague” letter has once again set a new record for the number of signatures—166 members of the U.S. House of Representatives signed this letter!

We are humbled and grateful, and also mindful that we will sorely miss the leadership over many decades of Rep. Louise Slaughter, who passed away on Friday, March 16. Rep. Slaughter set an example for us all about how to work hard for causes you believe in. We are all so grateful for her tremendous work on behalf of the arts and arts education. You can read Americans for the Arts’ full statement here.

We are also thankful to the more than 650 arts advocates who were just in Washington, D.C. for the 31st annual Arts Advocacy Day on March 12-13 and made more than 300 office visits. Our strategy was to keep asking for $155 million. That has been the consensus ask of the arts and arts education field represented each year at Arts Advocacy Day—every year now for the past 6 years. Your work is not in vain. Advocacy works!

Keep the pressure on. Measured by just emails, advocates sent more than 194,300 #SAVEtheNEA campaign emails to Congress. Your work will be needed to ensure that the latest proposal from the Trump Administration in FY 2019 is again defeated this year. Thank you for being an arts advocate.

Help us continue this important work by also becoming an official member of the Arts Action Fund.  If you are not already a member, play your part by joining the Arts Action Fund today – it’s free and easy to join.

Victory! The voices of arts advocates were heard on Capitol Hill.

Tonight (3/21/18), Congress released the details of its delayed current year FY 2018 Omnibus spending bill. I am pleased to share that arts advocates like you helped convince Congress to reject President Trump’s proposal to terminate the nation’s cultural agencies. In fact, Congress has allocated an INCREASE in funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to$152.849 million each. Please check our blog post for a detailed list of of Omnibus allocations to each of the federal cultural agencies and arts education programs.

This victory is such a fitting tribute to last week’s passing of Congressional Arts Caucus Co-Chair Representative Louise Slaughter, who spent her career in Congress fighting for the arts. She had most recently co-authored an Arts Advocacy Day “Dear Colleague” letter to her fellow Members of Congress recruiting a record number of 166 House Democrats and Republicans to sign a joint letter to House Appropriators to increase arts funding in America.

Together, Arts Action Fund members provided a strong  and united voice for the arts:

  • Grassroots arts advocates sent close to 200,000 messages to Members of Congress, thousands more signed our petitions and visited their elected Representatives and Senators.
  • Our Arts Action Fund PAC was incredibly effective in educating and supporting key leaders in Congress to take an important stand on the arts.
  • Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Ken Calvert (R-CA), soundly rejected President Trump’s attempt to terminate our nation’s cultural agencies.
  • Persuasive and timely ads were placed in political publications during key decision times to inform Members of Congress about the latest research on the economic power of the arts.

While we celebrate this victory today, we still need your support as we face continued threats from the Trump Administration to eliminate next year’s FY 2019 NEA funding. We need to keep the pressure on Congress. Please consider contributing to the Arts Action Fund PAC so we can continue to educate incumbents and the next generation of elected leaders, especially as mid-term elections approach in November.

Congratulations on a job well done!  Your advocacy has helped preserve funding stability for the nonprofit arts organizations in your state and community this year.

Exhibit Uncovers Truth, Gives Voice to Black Pioneers

Oregon Archives Exhibit, 

“Black in Oregon, 1840-1870”

BlackInOregon2

When each of us give the Pledge of Allegiance, we place our hand over our heart and promise, “liberty and justice for all.” As your Secretary of State, I have accepted the challenge to promote liberty and justice for all Oregonians. I am doing this through small business assistance, in the Corporations Division, through voter outreach in Elections, through exposing government waste in Audits, and through civics lessons and exhibits in Archives.

To obtain liberty and justice for all Oregonians requires a recognition and clear understanding of the history of Oregon minority populations, who have suffered repression, discrimination, and persecution throughout Oregon’s history.

February is Black History Month. For the past year, Oregon’s State Archivist Mary Beth Herkert, Citizen Engagement and Inclusion Coordinator Larry Morgan, Oregon Black Pioneers Secretary Gwen Carr, along with key staff members of the Oregon State Archives, have worked and researched a first-of-its-kind exhibit focusing on African-American families who were part of Oregon’s pioneer heritage, from 1840-1870.

The exhibit is located at the Oregon Archives Building in Salem and is open to the public Monday – Friday, 8:00am-4:45pm until August 24, 2018. The exhibit features stories, photos, and documents of early black pioneers in the Pacific Northwest. The Oregon State Constitution will also be on display.

For the first time in Oregon history, we have unveiled an exhibit written through the eyes of black Oregonians, for the benefit of all Oregonians.

Why is this important? With Oregon’s long history of racial inequality and prejudice, this exhibit uncovers the truth and uses the records in the Oregon State Archives. It gives voice to the brave and resilient black pioneers who overcame incredible barriers to make a life for themselves and their families in Oregon. This exhibit also seeks to challenge the rising generation of Oregonians to learn about the black pioneers, read their stories, and recognize that discrimination continues today.

For instance, did you know the Oregon Constitution, written in 1857, contained exclusionary language barring African-Americans from Oregon? Also enacted during this time were various laws prohibiting property ownership, prohibiting interracial marriage, prohibiting settlement by African-Americans in Oregon, and instituting lash laws (the public beating of blacks until they left Oregon). Despite these discriminatory barriers, African-Americans did settle in Oregon. Some came of their own accord, while others were brought as slaves. The Constitution’s Exclusionary Clause was finally removed in 1926 by Ballot Measure 3 (the vote was 108,332 to 64,954). In 2002, Ballot Measure 14 passed with 71% of the vote and removed all lingering racist language from the Oregon Constitution.

The “Black in Oregon, 1840-1870” exhibit is worth a visit to the Oregon State Archives building in Salem. I hope that schools will plan field trips to see this exhibit so students can have a firsthand experience learning about this important aspect in Oregon history. The exhibit is a great source of civics education and reminds us that, although we have come a long way on the path of freedom and equality, we still have much to do if we truly are committed to “liberty and justice for all.”

The Oregon State Archives building is located at 800 Summer St NE, Salem, OR 97310.
