When I moved the business to the Ashland Shopping Center a little over a year ago, my main focus was on custom picture framing, though I never abandoned the gallery side of things (my inner artist at work). Occupying an intimate space within the frame shop, Bohemia Gallery is now open!

In addition to showcasing exceptional regional artists, I remain committed to providing quality custom framing. You have options when it comes to framing and I promise to treat your artwork and precious memories with the respect they deserve. My goals are to make your project look great and to do no harm. That’s why I use conservation grade materials whenever possible, including glazing that blocks 99% of damaging UV light to protect from fading.

Gallery News

Bohemia Gallery returned November 1st with a well-received open house & reception for local artist Jeannie Azzopardi. I first met Jeannie a few months ago when she came in to have some of her artwork framed. As a huge fan of music, and jazz in particular, I was immediately blown away (and once I heard her story, even more so). She had done pen & ink drawings for years but didn’t start with watercolors until being diagnosed with breast cancer in March of 2011. The Jazz Series came to life following chemotherapy, 9 surgeries, the death of 3 loved ones within a 2 month period, and the end of a four year relationship due to the resulting depression. Although Jeannie holds 2 BS degrees, an MS and MDE, “Education and intelligence is, unfortunately, not a talisman against grief and despair.” We’re honored to display this work. It will be up through December.

Submissions Wanted
We are looking for new artists to feature in the gallery and on the website. Stop in and check the space out or visit bohemiagallery.com/submissions for more details.

Bohemia Gallery Returns with Exhibition by Breast Cancer Survivor!

postcard-4inx6in-h-frontThe Jazz Series: Watercolors and Drawings by Jeannie Azzopardi

Rogue Frameworks is proud to announce the return of Bohemia Gallery. The gallery occupies an intimate space within Rogue Frameworks and showcases work by exceptional regional artists.

A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Ashland resident Jeannie Azzopardi has done pen and ink illustration for years, though she never studied art formally. She began painting in March of 2011 after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

“Piano Dancer” by Jeanne Azzopardi

The Jazz Series came to life following chemotherapy, 9 surgeries, the death of 3 loved ones within a 2 month period, and the end of a four year relationship due to the resulting depression. Although Jeannie holds 2 BS degrees, an MS and MDE, “Education and intelligence is, unfortunately, not a talisman against grief and despair.”

The inspiration she needed came from two Frank Roner prints found at an estate sale. She embraced the freedom and joy in Roner’s Hi-Fi Characters and began the therapeutic journey away from desperate depression.

Sax and Dogs, by Jeannie Azzopardi

Jeannie’s style exhibits strokes of abandon and delight that charmingly captivate the viewer. As one fan says, “I totally love this art. Your paintings make me nostalgic for a time period I never lived in.”

There will be a reception for the artist on Friday November 1st from 5 – 8 PM. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

Evolution

Bohemia Framing and Fine Art Gallery Announces Upcoming Move, Art Sale

People’s Choice Award for Best Gallery – 2012 A Taste of Ashland

Lower Duck Pond in Lithia Park

Fall is a time of change. After another beautiful summer in Southern Oregon it’s time to move back inside, into our homes to prepare for winter and the coming new year, surrounded by walls and the things that adorn them. Fall is also a time of change at Bohemia.The Gallery’s time has come to an end (sort of). Tomorrow will be our final First Friday in Ashland’s Historic Railroad District. It’s been a fun ride but after almost two years, it’s time to move on (more info below).

In the meantime, we’ve got a variety of amazing artwork on display, much of it on sale!

Clifford Wilton got his start with oil painting in the 60’s in San Francisco and has been cultivating his work ever since. Predominantly working with oil on board, his recent work sees a departure from lush figurative abstracts to simpler graphic compositions of urban skyscapes. Mostly monochromatic, these paintings add a new dimension to a familiar, yet mostly ignored landscape. Though he hasn’t completely departed from the figurative realm; we have a few unique master works challenging the mind’s eye to blink.

For a limited time, Clifford Wilton’s paintings are 20% off

Robert Beckmann has been creating art his entire life. His recent paintings explore new materials and procedures while grappling with questions such as: How does the microcosm mirror the macrocosm? When does a simplification of empirical reality become abstract? How do we find a balance between order and chance and, acknowledging that our consciousness is fragmented (by our pace and media disjunction), how can we become whole again and possibly heal our world?

Kabuki by Robert Beckmann

Beckmann’s work has been exhibited throughout the world; from New York to Russia, Miami to Canada, San Francisco and Japan. He has completed over 250 mural projects nationwide, including the Shakespeare portrait on the Bard’s Inn here in Ashland. His work adorns numerous hotels and casinos in Las Vegas as well as the “D” gates in McCarran International Airport. His last public commission — six, large-scale (7’ x 12’) murals of the world’s most economically important plants — was installed at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, DC in 2005.

Opening reception August 3rd


Ellen Wishnetsky-Mueller

White/Black by Ellen Wishnetsky-Mueller

Ellen Wishnetsky-Mueller works in an organic way — mirroring the materials she employs such as silk, oxidized metal and felt. Her progression as an artist has involved a variety of over-lapping disciplines: design, painting, collage, fiber and installation. In recent years her art has evolved into sculptural forms.

Recently featured at SOU’s Schneider Museum, Wishnetsky-Mueller creates unique forms of metal and fiber that express the paradox of simultaneous opposition and unification, resulting in work that is both personal and global — rooted in consciousness and the mystery of nature.
