Images Thru the Eye of the Photographer
All Photography Show

We’re open and this is our new show for July! Photography continues to be strong in Ashland and we have a number of fantastic photography artists. We’ll show nature photography by Judy Benson LaNier, Jim Langhoffer and Jamie Lusch.  Portraits by Pam Danielle.  Landscapes by Jesse Widener and Todd Davis. And then we have the world travel shots by Ken Deveney, Andi Taylor and Steve Dieffenbacher. Other artists are represented as well.

The techniques are unique and varied — iphoneography and digital bitting among others. Some on canvas and others on metal. We love that Terry Skibby, Historic Commission photographer, will be with us again and will have portfolios of early scenes around Ashland.

Hanson Howard Gallery - July 2020 Spotlight Exhibits

Hanson Howard Gallery
A Trip to the Far Side, Sue Springer, Stan Peterson and Robert Koch
Sue Springer: ceramic sculpture
Robert Koch: paintings
Stan Peterson: carved wood sculpture

July 3 – August 4
 Temporary Summer Hours: Thursday – Saturday 12-4 (and by appointment)

Robert Koch:
 Gestural strokes and spontaneous marks collide with color blocks in Robert Koch’s narrative vignettes. Often prompted by found photographs, Koch takes the liberty to make his subjects humans or creatures inhabiting the same world. Having the appearance of quickness and even naiveté, Koch’s deft drawing skills mean each mark is playful and intentional at the same time.

Stan Peterson:
 Stan Peterson carves wood sculptures, which depict moments when something is about to happen. These are everyday moments, sometimes poignant, sometimes with an edge of humor. The subjects are figurative; female, male, animal with attention to their gestures and relationships. The scale is modest, handheld, yet on occasion, larger than life in feeling.

Stan has been exhibiting professionally since 1982 in Galleries in Oregon, California, New Mexico, and New York.

Sue Springer:
 Sue Springer creates quirky ceramic sculptures which are mostly figurative, with a whimsy and freedom of unexpected combinations. Dreams, imagination and wonder combine with a response to the current world to tell the stories of these figures.
After earning an MFA from the University of Oregon, Springer became a fixture in Ashland through Illahe Tileworks and Illahe Studios and Gallery, creating public art, most notably, the Rio Amistad Mosaic above Calle Guanajuato and the Plaza Mosaics.
She currently lives in Seattle Washington where she maintains a studio in the International District.
