Fiber Artist Jo Ann Manzone

Host David “Glamour Dave” Nienow interviews Ashland Art Center artist Jo Ann Manzone to discuss the art process in the production of her artwork.

Click here to view the entire interview with Jo Ann.

“My love of fiber began at an early age when I learned to knit and sew.  In my many years as a fiber artist and felter, I have made clothing and accessories for celebrities, galleries and markets.  My work is influenced by the ever changing fashion of the 60’s.  I have  taught felting workshops and retreats in various locations, including Create Mixed Media Retreats in Southern California, private women’s groups on the West Coast, in The Design Studio and at  Ashland Art Center.  I have also taught felting classes at the local sewing guild conference and love teaching felt making to children and at-risk teens.  I have had the opportunity to study under the guidance of Polly Sterling, who along with her partner Sachiko Kotaka invented nuno felt process.  I have been playing with natural dyes and botanical printing to create beautiful pieces of fabric and scarves.

Most days, I can be found in my working studio at Ashland Art Center, 357 E. Main where I create and teach my favorite felting and printing techniques. My creative focus is on combining natural elements with my felt and fabric to create unique textiles”.
~ Jo Ann Manzone

Julie

National Theatre Live

February 12, 2019 at 6pm
Running Time: 100 Minutes
$12 for Adults
$8 for Seniors and Students (must present student ID)
Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea) and broadcast live from the National Theatre to cinemas.

Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival.

This new version of August Strinberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.

Purchase tickets online, in the Columbia Arts Gallery at 215 Cascade in Hood River, or at Waucoma Bookstore. Please note that tickets are non-refundable, except in the event of cancellation.

Baba Yaga

One-Woman Show

February 8, 2019 and February 9, 2019 at 7pm, Doors at 6:30
$5 for Adults and Free for Students (must present a student ID)

Baba Yaga is a morally ambiguous witch who relishes doling out romantic advice to those brave enough to visit her hut–or perhaps she would rather eat you instead. Often described as a hideous crone who lives deep in the forest, Baba Yaga is an unpredictable force from Russian folklore, who  occasionally helps and often hinders her fairy tale visitors. Sometimes kind and often cruel, she imparts the audience with romantic advice, told through three classic Russian fairy tales from her perspective.

Baba Yaga is written, devised, and performed by Sam Reiter. True to its Russian fairy tale roots, the show developed primarily in Moscow, where its creator studied for a semester at the Moscow Art Theatre (in conjunction with the National Theatre Institute). Baba Yaga weaves shadow puppets, expressive movement, Pushkin, unconventional anecdotes, Russian dance, and improvisation into a unique storytelling experience. Don’t miss the performance that Oregon Arts Watch hailed as a “majestic, loving invocation of an old spirit.”

The Ashland Forge- Our February Community Partner

Dennis DeBey, operates the Ashland Forge. A Los Angeles native, Denny came to Ashland in 1969 from Humboldt State College, seeking a master’s degree in Outdoor Education at Southern Oregon College, with a goal of being a naturalist.

In a chance encounter, DeBey met master blacksmith Al Bart here and got mentored for several months, picking up a good foundation for a career. The work furthered his values of simplicity and kindness to the planet, as he was able to recycle and re-purpose castoff metal and find antiquated tools with lots of life left in them.

For 44 years DeBey has been standing, hammer in hand, over his 2,400-degree forge and anvil, creating iron art and fixing the broken stuff of everyday life — wood stoves, gates, rails, statues, candelabras — things that would otherwise end up in the dump in a throwaway society such as ours.

Thank you Denny for supporting your community of fellow artists at Ashland Art Center.

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.
