NAMI SO Announces Poster Contest for annual Mental Health Film Fest

The National Alliance on Mental Illness Southern Oregon (NAMI SO) would like to announce an art contest for our poster for the next annual Mental Health Film Fest:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dear Artists:

The National Alliance on Mental Illness Southern Oregon (NAMI SO) would like to announce an art contest for our poster for the next annual Mental Health Film Fest:

NAMI SO Film Fest Poster artwork competition: as a fun way to involve the artists in our community, the NAMI SO Film Fest Committee wants to invite you to submit two-dimensional art pieces for consideration for the 2020 film fest poster! The winner will get to see their artwork all over Jackson and Josephine counties and will receive special mention in the programs and two tickets to Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s 2020 Season!

This is a great way to show how art is relevant to mental health. The composition should be easy-to-identify, somehow connecting with the theme of mental health, and it should be a positive message of hope, help and recovery. A big ask? Maybe. But so very important!

Artists who don’t make it onto the poster will still have the opportunity to display their artwork at the Film Fest event, May 2nd (in Ashland) and 3rd (Grants Pass)! This year, we will display art depicting anything to do with mental health, emotions, or images inspired by our mental health…stay tuned here for more on that as we get closer, but be thinking about what you want to submit…

Bring original artwork submissions for the poster (signed but unframed, as it will need to be scanned if it wins) to the NAMI Library at 140 S. Holly, Medford, Rm 1300 by January 31st, 2020, or contact Meesha Blair at [email protected]. We will notify you of the winner within the week following. All artwork should have your contact information attached, so we can notify you and return your artwork. Contest is not limited to NAMI members (although membership is a great way to support our work in the community. See www.namisouthernoregon.org for more). There is no entry fee.

We look forward to seeing your art!

Good luck!
Meesha Blair, NAMI SO Advocacy Committee

Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E.

Please go to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ArtduJourGallery) for any further updates.

Featured Wall Celebrating Fall Colors will Transition to a Winter Themed Exhibit

When one of our artist members must leave the co-operative, or for one reason or another is unable to fulfill their Featured Artist month, our board of directors must scramble to fill an open slot. This month a combined exhibit by participating AdJ members built around the theme Celebrating Fall Colors” has received positive reviews from our art loving friends and visitors.  In the interest of keeping with our motto “Always Something New”, the remainder of 2019 will see a transition from autumn to winter for a special treat for the upcoming holiday season.

She is also a board member “Artist Liaison” with the Ashland Gallery Association.  As her exhibit continues into November Jeanne has also planned a transition into the winter season with some new paintings depicting appropriate winter scenes. This will provide an opportunity to those who have already seen her October display another chance to see more of what makes her work so captivating.

Calling All Rogue Valley Artists!!!

November will also bring a new look throughout the gallery as we undergo our quarterly change-out with a lot of fresh materiel ready to be presented.  We still actively seek new artists living in the Rogue Valley region who would like to join our co-operative and display their work to the Medford community.

Guest Artist Jeanne LaRae-Lagano in Salon through November

Jeanne LaRae-Lagano has a resume listing many accomplishments as an exhibiting and published artist.  Her current duties with the Ashland Art Center includes gallery curator and manager, studio artist, window display, and instructor. She is also a board member “Artist Liaison” with the Ashland Gallery Association. In her artists statement she writes:

“I am an artist. I am enthralled with color, value, shapes, design and I can’t seem to let things go by that capture my attention. My opportunities to paint Alla Prima and Plein Air are what I love most… They are loose and fresh, and they portray what I am most excited about with the view in front of me. I began to take a strong liking to landscape painting because of the daily need to show landscaping in my renderings. I escaped outside to paint landscapes and found my love for Plein Air painting.”

“Like a composer conducting a symphony, I am in the middle of it all, I get to orchestrate the bass cello creating the darks and the main shapes, then the violins leading the viewer through the path of color with the final bells and frills of highlights and details making the light dance and the crescendo to fulfill my mission as I step back into the silence of my surroundings.”

“I was born into a family that enabled me to be who I am, as unique, true to myself, individual, creating my own path. Creative thinking was encouraged, and I decided at an early age to take a path leading to an art career. Painting is my spiritual meditation as I am connecting to my subject through my soul using my acquired knowledge to guide me on my adventurous endeavors, always exploring and pushing myself for greater personal achievements. My photography helps me paint in the studio and because it is something I love, I get lost in photographing for future paintings. I am captivated and drawn to people and I photograph their emotions as events take place. My love for photography enhances my art and my love for art enhances my photography.”

Based in Medford, Portrait Slam is an event-based organization fostering creative community, collaboration and creativity, is our featured exhibit for September.  Photographers involved in the exhibit are: Brielle Alden, Aaron Alden, Rachel Lindsey Routh, Tom Pitts, Travis Toll, Debra Thornton Photography & Rebel Louise Photography.

On June 9th, Portrait Slam organized a special photo shoot featuring six photographers, Tiffany Walker of ReFashion Consignment, and residents of Ashland’s Skylark Assisted Living & Memory Care facility. Facilitated by activity director Jeremy Johnson and his staff, the afternoon was spent in creative collaboration, laughter, storytelling, and bridging generational perspectives. Each resident modeled clothing and accessories provided and shared with the photographer’s own unique style, personality and perspective. Portrait Slam chose to present these images in black and white to emphasize that each contribution – both resident and photographer – while beautiful as an individual work of art, is also inextricably connected a more powerful whole.

Guest Artist Sheri Dinardi in Salon through September

"Crystal Earring" by Sheri Dinardi

“Crystal Earring” by Sheri Dinardi… image provided by artist

On her website Sheri writes: “Painting for me is an expression of life. Simple everyday beauty surrounds us. I am especially moved by light, whether it is the rising sun or light spilling across the form of a person. As primarily a painter of people, I enjoy the unique privilege of standing before a beautiful living human being. It is there that you observe the beauty of the colors of light, warm and cool tones spilling over the form. Beyond the imagery is the person hood of the model that seems to emanate into the room. How does one capture it all with mere paint on a blank canvas? There is our challenge… to communicate life and beauty to our viewers. As a artist I desire to paint images that bring joy, inspiration and a sense of hope to the viewer. Most importantly, I hope to express the beauty of creation in such a way as to honor our Creator who gives us life and breath; and inspires me every day with His amazing masterpieces.”

Call to Artists for the Seventh Annual Angels Show

Call to Artists for the Seventh Annual Angels Show at Art Presence Art Center, December 2019

View this email in your browser

Important Changes!

We have decided that, because our call to artists went out later than intended, we needed to make sure we allow artists more time to prepare their works for the show. Therefore, we will return to last year’s format, exhibiting the Angels Show in December only.

Here are the changes to several important dates:

  • Submission Deadline is now November 18th.
  • Artwork drop-off dates are now November 23, 24 and 25th.
  • We will hang the show on Thursday, December 5th.
  • The show opens on Friday, December 6th.
  • Reception is now Saturday, December 7th, from 1–3 pm.
  • Closing date is still Sunday, December 29th.

We thank the artists who have already submitted their entries and apologize for the sudden change.

“Angel on High,” by Katherine Bird, from the 2018 Angels show.

Show Us Your Angels!

We seek your INTERPRETATION of angels in your choice of medium and style. You are not limited to the traditional or religious styles commonly seen this time of year. The amazing variety of angels in various mediums, styles and techniques in past shows has drawn many favorable comments from attendees and patrons. We prefer new angels, but gladly invite prior years’ artists and their angels to return.

We have some pedestals to accommodate freestanding 3D angels but you should be prepared to bring your own. For 2D art, there is a limit of 2 pieces with a maximum dimension of 48 inches each.

Submissions are not technically juried, but we do review and prioritize them in the event we run out of space. If this occurs, new angels will have priority over repeat entries. Painting a new angel for this year’s show? Reply to this email to notify us as soon as possible! Please include the approximate dimensions of your piece(s).

Please fill out the application form below. Right click, then save the image and print. Submit with images of your angel art to gallery director Anne Brooke at [email protected]. Anne will be happy to answer any questions not addressed on the form.

THANK YOU!

We can’t wait to see your angels.

Please forward and share with artist friends and fellow members of artist groups who might like to participate. We also invite you to share it in your newsletters, online announcements and artist group meetings.

James di Properzio has been a professional writer and editor for over 20 years, and also writes poetry and fiction. He taught Philosophy at Emory University while working on a PhD. He also enjoys sumi-e painting, figure drawing, and sculpture. He has volunteered teaching creative writing to young people for several years.

CALL TO ARTISTS FROM ART PRESENCE

Show Us Your Angels!

We seek your INTERPRETATION of angels in your choice of medium and style. You are not limited to the traditional or religious styles commonly seen this time of year. The amazing variety of angels in various mediums, styles and techniques in past shows has drawn many favorable comments from attendees and patrons. We prefer new angels, but gladly invite prior years’ artists and their angels to return.

We have some pedestals to accommodate freestanding 3D angels, but you should be prepared to bring your own. For 2D art, there is a limit of 2 pieces with a maximum dimension of 48 inches each.

Submissions are not technically juried, but we do review and prioritize them in the event we run out of space. If this occurs, new angels will have priority over repeat entries. Painting a new angel for this year’s show? Reply to this email to notify us as soon as possible! Please include the approximate dimensions of your piece(s).

Please fill out the application form here>>. Right click, then save the image and print. Submit with images of your angel art to gallery director Anne Brooke at[email protected]. Anne will be happy to answer any questions not addressed on the form.
