Reception at Rogue Gallery, May 17, 2019 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Reception for Main Gallery and Community Gallery Exhibit

Friday, May 17, 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Cammy Davis Give Me One Reason

Cammy Davis Give Me One Reason

Main Gallery – “Surface and Structures: Paintings by Cammy Davis and Sculpture by Nadine Gay”

May 10–June 21, 2019

The Surface and Structures exhibit features abstract artist Cammy Davis and sculptor Nadine Gay. Cammy Davis paints bold large abstract acrylic paintings. Nadine Gay is a multi-media artist who creates whimsical and contemplative ceramic figurative sculptures. The exhibit is a juxtaposition of large, textured, color enriched canvases with sculpture that is figurative, spiritual, and at times delicate. Each artists’ work is beautifully complemented by the other.

 

Cammy Davis is a Jacksonville artist who has been featured at fine art galleries between Seattle and Palm Springs. She has developed art tutorial videos and music art videos. Cammy studied fine art at the University of Idaho and holds a degree in Interior Design from Bellevue College in Washington. Cammy has been deeply influenced by her childhood experiences of growing up in the woods. She spent her youth making sword fern teepees and treehouses from material of the land. The lifestyle was simple and creative. Her youth instilled in her a resourceful and creative spirit that is present in her abstract paintings. She resides in Jacksonville.

 

Nadine Gay was born and raised in France and came to the United States in the 1970’s. She holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from the Pratt Institute. Nadine has taught art in various programs from kindergarten to college, prisons to psychiatric hospitals, and classes for adults. In 2016, she retired from teaching art and moved to the Rogue Valley to concentrate on her art. She describes her work as a playful conversation between her dreams, images and the materials she uses to create. Her work is often process oriented, as Nadine explains, “Stories emerge, the child in me delights in what comes to life. My work connects me with a fantasy world, a waking dream-space.” She has exhibited in France and throughout the US.

Community Gallery New Exhibit – “Finding Form: Paintings by Katy Cauker “

April 19 – May 31, 2019

Katy Cauker_A Favorite Place

Katy Cauker’s paintings explore the shape and form of water and the farmlands that surround her home in the Rogue Valley. Katy has expressionistic, lively, vigorous brushstrokes in her paintings of waterways and open fields. She paints in acrylic, oil, and gouache. She states, “Many of my paintings explore the shape and form of water, and by extension, now, the agricultural lands that surround my home in the Rogue Valley. Searching for the shapes that best express my relationship to water and our communal and individual responsibilities to preserve our environment and protect our water is at the core of my world as an artist.” Katy resides in Jacksonville.

Refreshments from Harry & David will be served at the reception.

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.

2019 Ashland New Plays Festival Summer Events

Award-winning Playwrights E.M. Lewis, Octavio Solis Featured at Ashland New Plays Festival Summer Events

Ashland New Plays Festival’s summer events include its popular Theatre Talk monthly conversation series, this year featuring Jessica Ko, Octavio Solis, Amy Kim Waschke, and Erica Sullivan. The series launches on Monday, June 3. ANPF also welcomes back award-winning playwright E.M. Lewis to Ashland for a special full production of her critically acclaimed play The Gun Show with performances on Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15.

Award-winning Playwrights E.M. Lewis, Octavio Solis Featured at Ashland New Plays Festival Summer Events

“I am thrilled this season to be speaking with such an enormously talented group of theater artists,” says Theatre Talk host John Rose, “I’m particularly looking forward to talking with a playwright about the complete creative process of theater, from words on the page to staged production, and that playwright is Octavio Solis, one of the most important and original voices in American theater today.”

Theatre Talk, now in its 8th season, delves into how guests’ personal experiences merge with their professional, creative life, giving audiences insight and understanding into their work. The conversation with Solis, whose powerful play Mother Road is currently at Oregon Shakespeare Festival, will be held on Monday, July 8. Rose will also discuss the acting process of character development, performance and storytelling as practiced by the other three guests, Oregon Shakespeare Festival actors Jessica Ko on Monday, June 3; Amy Kim Waschke on Monday, August 12; and Erica Sullivan on Monday, September 23. 

All conversations begin at 7:30 pm and will be held at OSF’s Carpenter Hall, 44 S Pioneer Street, in Ashland. Tickets to individual talks are $10 at the door, or advance Discount Passes are available now online or by check to all four talks for $32. See website for details: www.ashlandnewplays.org.

In The Gun Show, E.M. Lewis takes aim at her own relationship with firearms, from her experiences in a farming community in rural Oregon to the big cities of Los Angeles and New York. The one-act play is performed by Andrew William Smith, who brings to life the playwright’s unique perspective and her personal stories as if they were his own, with brutal honesty and poignant humor. Leaning neither right nor left, the play jumps into the middle of the gun control debate, and asks “Can we have a conversation about this?”

The play premiered in 2014 to critical acclaim with sold-out performances in Chicago and received similar receptions in Los Angeles, New Jersey, Portland, Philadelphia, and more, as well as internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. It was also included in The Best American Short Plays 2015-2016.

E.M. Lewis is a former ANPF winning playwright with Song of Extinction, for which she also won the Steinberg Award, and she served as host playwright for eight ANPF Fall Festival seasons. Among her many accolades as a playwright and librettist, she was awarded the 2016 Oregon Literary Fellowship in Drama, a Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University, and a playwriting fellowship from the New Jersey State Arts Commission.

“We are excited to share this riveting play with local audiences, as people might not have the chance to see it at its sold-out productions across the country,” says ANPF Board President Peggy Moore, “It’s an important play by an esteemed playwright, and we are thrilled to be able to bring her wonderful work to the Rogue Valley.”

The performances are Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15, at 7:30 pm, at the Bellview Grange, 1050 Tolman Creek Road, in Ashland. Tickets are $25 and are on sale online now. More information can be found at www.ashlandnewplays.org.

May Spotlight Exhibits

Hanson Howard

Sue Springer, ceramic sculpture & Robert Koch, paintings

Sue Springer creates quirky ceramic sculptures, which are mostly figurative, with a whimsy and freedom of unexpected combinations. Dreams, imagination and wonder combine with a response to the current world to tell the stories of these figures.  Sue, founder of the former Illahe Studios and Gallery now lives and works in Seattle, Washington.

Gestural strokes and spontaneous marks collide with color blocks in Robert Koch’s narrative vignettes. Often prompted by found photographs, Koch takes the liberty to make his subjects humans or creatures inhabiting the same world. Having the appearance of quickness and even naiveté, Koch’s deft drawing skills mean each mark is playful and intentional at the same time
