Ashland New Plays Festival will open its 2018 season

by staging a dramatic reading of a family drama, Your Best One, on Sunday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m. at Southern Oregon University’s Music Recital Hall. Tickets are available now at www.ashlandnewplays.org.

The play by Meridith Friedman will feature actors Rex Young, James Edmondson, Paul Michael Garcia and Kate Berry. The four are well-known to Ashland audiences and previously appeared in Friedman’s play The Luckiest People at ANPF’s 2015 Fall Festival. They will reprise their original roles and Paul Mason Barnes will direct.
Meridith Friedman at ANPF 2015, archival photo
“I love, love, love Ashland,” said Friedman, who lives in Los Angeles and writes for television.  “ANPF has terrific, smart, insightful patrons, and I’m looking forward to finding out their feedback on the play.”

Your Best One and Friedman’s 2015 play are part of a trilogy commissioned by Denver’s Curious Theatre Company, where The Luckiest People received its world premiere performance last year. The third part, as yet untitled, will be presented by ANPF on May 13 at SOU’s Main Theatre.

The story of Your Best One centers around the Hoffman family, including widower Oscar and his grown children Richard and Laura and their families. When one of their own faces a serious health crisis, they rally together–and against each other–with their trademark wit and inherited neurosis, contending with health insurance, child custody, inheritance, and superfoods.

June 3 – July 29, 2016

Reception Date: Friday, June 17, 5-8pm

 

This exciting fiber art show features thirty-three juried quilts from the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) of the Oregon Region. SAQA member artists use color, texture and motion to blend poetic expression into intricate cloth creations. SAQA began in 1989 to represent fiber artists and to further quilting as an art form.

 

The Rogue Gallery & Art Center is proud to host Studio Art Quilt Associates, Oregon Region. Members of SAQA create fiber works of exceptional quality and originality. The theme of this exhibit is to blend poetic verse into a fiber work and reference the poem, song or quotation that was the source of inspiration. Displayed works demonstrate the artists’ mastery of the fiber medium, as well as the inventive ways they interpret their poetic inspirations. The quilts include abstract geometric patterns, lyrical landscapes, and playful storytelling. Quilts vary from the  contemplative and meditative to others that are more playful and are energized with rhythmic movement. The addition of the poetic verse gives a greater depth and insight to the artwork.

Seventy Oregon members submitted work for this juried exhibit. Juror Patricia Clark, founder of Atelier 6000 Print Workshop in Bend, selected works which demonstrated not only the scope of artistic vision among Oregon’s SAQA members, but also the level of high achievement in the use of the medium.

Rogue Gallery June 2016 Exhibits and Events, medford oregon : Sierra Fox, Woodblock print by Melinda Whipplesmith Plank

Sierra Fox, Woodblock print by Melinda Whipplesmith Plank

Woodblock prints by Northern California artist, Melinda Whipplesmith Plank. The artist captures the natural beauty of the State of Jefferson in woodblocks featuring rich colors and textures together with energetic lines.

 

Melinda Whipplesmith Plank uses the traditional technique of woodblock relief print to create images of the wilderness of Southern Oregon and Northern California. Reimiscient of the travel guides of the 1940’s, these woodblock prints portray the rustic, rich beauty of the region. Her use of color creates depth and illuminates the work. Woodblock relief printing requires the artist to carve images into the surface of a block of wood that is then inked for printing. The artist carves with the grain of the wood, frequently creating gouges and strong rough lines. Melinda’s carving into woodblocks recreates the texture of the bark of trees and the rugged wilderness. She describes printmaking as, “a medium which takes my ambition to perfect an image and laughs at me. It forces me to stretch; to simplify what I am trying to say, then twists it in directions which lead to delight, consternation, or dismay.”

Melinda Whipplesmith Plank has received awards as a printmaker. She has been an artist in residence at Lassen National Park and Glacier National Park. She resides in Etna, California.
