Your Voice Is Needed to Continue the Cultural Trust Tax Credit!

Your Voice Is Needed to Continue the Cultural Trust Tax Credit!

Hello Friends of Arts and Culture in Oregon!  The time to engage with policymakers is now!

We’ve been preparing for all the action in the 2019 legislative session and the opening move is coming on Monday, February 18th when the House Committee of Economic Development will hold a hearing on HB 2052 — a bill to extend the sunset on the cultural tax credit for the next ten years.  We hope you will contact your legislators to encourage them to support HB 2052 and to share with them the priority that you and other Oregonians put on access to creative expression in this state. 

Oregon is unique in the Nation in having the Cultural Trust but we are far from the $200 million fund that was originally envisioned.  We need to collectively raise our voices in support of building this fund and using tax incentives to help do it — remember dollars in the Cultural Trust are distributed to every county and to tribal partners.  This tax credit is an important engagement tool for this state and critical to our cultural ecosystem.  Please add your voice!  Best — Cultural Advocacy Coalition

Send your support letter for HB 2052 in by Friday, February 15th to:  [email protected]

#FutureSelfLove

This January, three things inspired/conspired to create this post…
1) Earlier this month, I was traveling for work. My flights had the tightest layovers of any airline itinerary I’ve ever booked, and I barely made either connection. And though my checked bag was delayed for several days on arrival, I found myself laughing at what annoyed me most: no time for airport laps. That’s what I call my travel exercise when I’m (usually) waiting in an airport for hours. I often walk until my phone’s health app tells me I’ve reached five miles. On this trip, I got my cardio in by quite literally running to catch my planes—not the most pleasant or peaceful exercise!
2) This month also marks the 10-year anniversary of a promise I made to myself. In January of 2009, I had been teaching for a year and a half on an island in Micronesia. In that near-equatorial climate, it was sweet relief to swing by the beach after school and join fellow teachers for a swim. On the hottest days, we’d buy a pass to one of the swanky hotel gyms and exercise in the air-conditioning.
By that January, I was in the best shape of my life. I liked feeling strong and lithe. And so I committed to some kind of exercise every day. For the rest of my life, for as long as my body can move. Minimum: 20 minutes of stretches. Average: 45 minute hike. And…I’m not really into maximum exertion, so there’s pretty much never more than a two-hour hike or a long day of walking in a foreign city. I know my limits!
For the last ten years, I’ve kept this commitment—even on days of extreme weather, international travel, or minor surgery. I’d made the commitment, so I found a way. Some days, it’s just those 20 minutes of stretches.  Most days it’s the 45-minute hike in my town’s Woodlands. One day in Paris, it was walking over a dozen miles across almost as many arrondissements. 
The beautiful thing about doing something over time is the momentum. Once I reached the year mark, it was easy to keep going. I liked that I’d built a history of trust with myself. It inspired me to find a way to keep my commitment, every single day. 
3) Also this month, I saw many #TenYearChallenge posts on social media. It can be fun to look back. It can also be fun to look forward—by doing things our future selves will be grateful for. What would we like to “see” in photos taken ten years from now? And I don’t just mean physically.
I write this as much to encourage myself as anyone because beyond asking myself what can I do that my future self will be grateful for, I’m also asking what I can do that goes beyond myself. What little thing(s) everyday over ten years could we do that might translate into healthier world? What daily practices of spirit, mind, and body could we begin now that will build over the next decade? What might we see in our lives in 2029 as a result?
Blessings of health & #FutureWorldLove to us all,

Anna

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.

February 2019 at Art du Jour

Visitors to Medford's Art du Jour Gallery will find a warm and friendly atmosphere on the third Friday of each month.

Art du Jour Gallery
213 E. Main Street
Medford, OR 97501
(541) 770-3190 (Tues – Sat., 10-4)

Upcoming in February 2019:

Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E. Main Street in Medford will be exhibiting the fine art paintings of Carl Seybodt as guest artist in the Salon through February and March, while AdJ member Roy Musitelli will be featured artist. (www.facebook.com/ArtduJourGallery).

Guest Artist Carl Seyboldt

Carl Seyboldt is one of those people who knows that, while nothing is easy, and nothing is free, nothing is impossible either.  A free-lance illustrator, fine artist and adjunct professor at Rogue Community College.  Carl both teaches and uses what he learned at Art Center, now in Pasadena, California and through his life experiences to fashion not just his own profession, but to help students plan theirs as well. He strives always to keep current on the cutting edge of the field.

Carl specializes in painting and drawing wildlife, western scenes and historical subject matter.  He has completed a series of limited edition prints of the famous Wells Fargo Stagecoach line.  He has received a number of awards, including the Sid Burns Artist Award several times.  He has worked as a professional illustrator as well as an illustrator during his career in the Army.  Carl and his wife Sharon of 48 years live on a 21-acre ranch near Eagle Point, Oregon.

Featured Artist Roy Musitelli

The Potter’s Hands by Roy Musitelli. Image provided by the artist

After spending most of his adult life documenting life through the lens of a camera as a newspaper photographer, Roy Musitelli returned to school where he rediscovered his passion for drawing.  One of his first courses at Rogue Community College was a basic drawing class taught by Carl Seyboldt, who’s influence led him to enroll in several more of his classes while pursuing a graphic design degree. ” I knew right away that graphic design wasn’t really my thing”, he writes. “Carl helped me see that illustration is where my heart had been leading me all along and that there was plenty yet to be learned. It’s a profound honor to be sharing this exhibit space with someone who I deeply respect.”

Shrouded Beacon by Roy Musitelli. Image provided by the artist

A member of AdJ since 2016, Roy’s foundation in journalism keeps him in touch with the news of our day which is often reflected in his artwork. In an effort to shed the photographer-turned-artist label for at least one month, Roy’s featured wall exhibit will be dedicated entirely to illustrations that have come from his drawing board of ideas.

Rogue Gallery Presents Capturing Beauty: Paintings by Sheri Dinardi , Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, and David Terry

       

     

 

Rogue Gallery New Exhibit and Reception

Main Gallery exhibit:

Capturing Beauty: Paintings by Sheri Dinardi , Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, and David Terry

January 11 – February 22, 2019
Reception Date: January 18, 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Last of Summer 18×24 oil on linen by David W Terry

Artists Sheri Dinardi, Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, & David Terry create luminous works in the time honored tradition of oil painting. Their paintings of people, structures, and landscapes beautifully capture a moment in time and the essence of the subject.

The Capturing Beauty exhibit features three artists who paint in the traditional oil medium. Creating figurative oil paintings require talent, training, skill, and perseverance. The process of creating an oil painting requires many hours work due to the slow drying time and the paint properties required in layering the colors. The paintings in this exhibit reflect the expertise of these three artists. They are rich in luminous colors and are of profound beauty. While many of the works are reminiscent of great paintings from the past, each of these artists has developed their own artistic style.

Jacksonville artist, Sheri Dinardi studied with Frank Covino where she honed her skills in Old Master oil painting techniques. She also trained with Dan Gerhartz, Michael Malm, and JoAnn Peralta. She has exhibited nationally and has won many awards for her paintings. Ilene Gienger-Stanfield has been painting for over twenty years and resides in Phoenix, OR. She teaches weekly figurative session, private lessons, and has taught workshops nationwide. She holds signature status with American Impressionist Society, Pastel Society of America, Northwest Pastel Society and master signature status with Women Artists of the West. David Terry is originally from Temple, Texas and now resides in Jacksonville. He is a member of the Salmagundi Club of New York, the Portrait Society of America, and the Oil Painters of America. He has won awards in two international contests sponsored by the Portrait Society of America. His work hangs in numerous public and private collections.

Refreshments from Harry & David will be served at the reception on Friday, January 18, 5:30 – 8:00 pm.

The Rogue Gallery & Art Center is a non-profit community art center, founded in 1960 to promote and support the arts in the Rogue Valley. The center exhibits a wide range of artistic styles and mediums from local and national artists. Programming includes art educational opportunities for children and adults. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call (541)772-8118 for more info or visit www.roguegallery.org.
