Upcoming Workshops with Silvia Trujillo

Upcoming Workshops with Silvia Trujillo

I’ve been at the drawing board (literally) working on three large commissions for the new Oregon Retina Center in Medford, getting work ready for my solo exhibit at The Berryman Gallery (located in the Craterian Theater), acted as juror for a member show, finished up the teen mentor project, and  recently taught a ‘Clouds & Skies’ workshop. Besides all this I’ve managed to get a bit of plein air work in and attend some open model sessions. Whew, it’s been a busy Spring, but I’m grateful for all of the opportunities! And of course I’m still showing new work at the Art & Soul Gallery in Ashland.

If you’d like to keep up with my latest works and offerings, please visit my blog (link at bottom) and subscribe …

The instructor will help with composition, color, and techniques to guide viewers’ eyes through your painting. Silvia has a wide range of experience with different styles and media, and will help you in mastering yours.

Hope you can make it to one or both of these!

2017 ARTIST TEEN MENTORING PROJECT

April 14– April 28, 2017

Rogue Gallery April 2017 Exhibits and News: 2017 Artist Teen Mentoring Project

Reception: Friday, April 21, 5–8pm

This exhibition is a culmination of Rogue Gallery & Art Center’s annual Artist Teen Mentoring Project that pairs professional artists with Rogue Valley high school students for intensive study and interaction. On display is the creative work of both teens and mentoring artists, which includes painting in acrylic and oil, assemblage, printmaking, pen and ink, charcoal, and sculpture.

 

Through the program, the students learn new techniques to use in their work, how to present their work in an exhibit, and gain insight to the life of a professional artist. Teen artists had the opportunity to work with an established artist to create art in a variety of media. To be accepted into the program, the teens went through an application process that included a portfolio review, a written essay, letters of recommendation, and an interview. The selected students for the program spent ten weeks with their mentors, learning and practicing techniques and preparing their work for display. The time, talent, and dedication are evident in the quality of artwork on display that includes abstract, expressionism, impressionism, and realistic styles.

 

Mentor artists are Jenny Calaba, Sheri Dinardi, David Masters, Nancy Jo Mullen, and Silvia Trujillo. Students are from Cascade, Eagle Point, Logos Charter, South Medford, and St. Mary’s high school, and include Emma Bennion, Maia Bierwirth, Christina Cannon, Alyssa Dunham, Brieann Fitch, Matt Hearon, Alyssa Patterson, and Sophia Von Haden.
