April 22 – May 26, 2016

Reception: Friday, May 20, 5–8pm

Rogue Gallery’s current Main Gallery exhibit showcases the work of northwest artists Jonnel Covault, Julia Janeway, and Randall Perkins . All three artists find inspiration for their artwork in nature. Jonnel Covault’s linocuts express her lifelong love of the water and wildlife. Julia Janeway captures nature’s fleeting moments in her woodcut-inspired ceramics. Randall Perkins draws inspiration for his glasswork from the ever-changing landscape of his wife’s garden.


Jonnel Covault’s connection with nature is the inspiration for her black and white linocuts. Working as a commercial fisherman for 17 years in a remote village in Alaska, Jonnel developed a deep intimacy with her natural surroundings. Her images depict the woodlands, meadows, and waterways. She develops her prints using Japanese U and V gouges, a Dremel, and a sharp blade on linoleum. The process creates a texture reminiscent of Japanese woodcuts. Jonnel describes her work: “I am fascinated by the abstract qualities of light and weather on water. These images are meant to be visual reminders that chronicle a particular time and place. I am attempting to describe transient human connections to the natural environment.” Jonnel lives in Portland, Oregon.


Ashland artist, Julia Janeway captures the essence of nature in her hand-carved ceramic pieces. Her works include Northwest Native American inspired salmon as well as platters depicting various birds and flora. She begins her work with drawings and templates and then proceeds to carve into the ceramic piece creating playful and engaging images. Julia was introduced at an early age to ceramics by her mother who was a potter and an art teacher. Her  own love for ceramics developed alongside her career as a professor of literature. She now seeks to connect the storytelling of literature with visual illustration in her ceramics.


Randall Perkins draws his inspiration for his glasswork from his wife’s garden. His hand blown pieces are alive with color, design, and movement. Glass fiddle ferns reach and stretch to the sky and deep purple orchids glow as if illuminated by the sun. Randall started working with glass in college as a chemistry student. After college, he traveled and worked with glass artists in Mexico City, Murano, Italy, Big Sur, California, San Francisco, and Portland, Oregon. His pieces are hand blown at the Gathering Glass Studio in Ashland. He resides in Medford.


A reception for both exhibits will be held on Friday, May 20, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Wine, Rogue Creamery cheese, and Harry and David snacks will be served.
