September Love

This is to let you know about a couple of upcoming events.  

Since the “Improve your Painting 101” mini-workshop at Scrappy Craft was so well received last month, I’m continuing it on a monthly basis. Next week – Thursday, Sept 30, (1-4pm) is the next class. There is still room if you would like to join us! Contact me directly to reserve space, or if you have any questions.  

I’m also looking forward to teaching another plein air workshop on Saturday, October 9 (10-4) at Lone Ranch alpaca farm! The workshop is sponsored by Rogue Gallery Art Center; sign up with them; either online or by phone. * attached flyer for more info

May you enjoy the beauty of Fall and its crisp, bright days!

SHOES DREAMS: Paintings by Jay Gordon

Flower Dreams, mixed media painting by Jay Gordon

Exhibit dates: January 24—February 28, 2020

Reception Date: Friday, February 21, 5:30-8 pm

 

Ashland artist Jay Gordon mixed media paintings of various styles of shoes are whimsical, playful, and stylish. She uses abstract brushworks with representational images of sandals, loafers, boots, stilettos, Oxfords, and Mary Jane shoes. From function to fashion, shoes communicate the activities and tastes of the people who wear them.  Jay Gordon demonstrates the depth of information these objects can convey, pulling these compositions closer to portraiture than still life. Jay Gordon was inspired to pursue painting from viewing art in numerous museums while living in Washington DC. She is also an accomplished bassist musician and a pediatrician.

She has travelled extensively in Africa and photographed beautiful and exotic birds in her travels. She describes her photos as “My work is the product of a lifetime of looking for beauty in the simplicity and complexity of nature: an ant on a flower’s stem, a rain drop on a rose, a lion hiding in the bush, a Hawaiian sunset…and finding it with my lens.” Her work has been published in books and magazines and has been shown in galleries and art shows around Oregon for 30 years.
