Main Gallery – “Surface and Structures: Paintings by Cammy Davis and Sculpture by Nadine Gay”

May 10–June 21, 2019

The Surface and Structures exhibit features abstract artist Cammy Davis and sculptor Nadine Gay. Cammy Davis paints bold large abstract acrylic paintings. Nadine Gay is a multi-media artist who creates whimsical and contemplative ceramic figurative sculptures. The exhibit is a juxtaposition of large, textured, color enriched canvases with sculpture that is figurative, spiritual, and at times delicate. Each artists’ work is beautifully complemented by the other.

 

Cammy Davis is a Jacksonville artist who has been featured at fine art galleries between Seattle and Palm Springs. She has developed art tutorial videos and music art videos. Cammy studied fine art at the University of Idaho and holds a degree in Interior Design from Bellevue College in Washington. Cammy has been deeply influenced by her childhood experiences of growing up in the woods. She spent her youth making sword fern teepees and treehouses from material of the land. The lifestyle was simple and creative. Her youth instilled in her a resourceful and creative spirit that is present in her abstract paintings. She resides in Jacksonville.

 

Nadine Gay was born and raised in France and came to the United States in the 1970’s. She holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from the Pratt Institute. Nadine has taught art in various programs from kindergarten to college, prisons to psychiatric hospitals, and classes for adults. In 2016, she retired from teaching art and moved to the Rogue Valley to concentrate on her art. She describes her work as a playful conversation between her dreams, images and the materials she uses to create. Her work is often process oriented, as Nadine explains, “Stories emerge, the child in me delights in what comes to life. My work connects me with a fantasy world, a waking dream-space.” She has exhibited in France and throughout the US.

Katy Cauker_A Favorite Place

Katy Cauker’s paintings explore the shape and form of water and the farmlands that surround her home in the Rogue Valley. Katy has expressionistic, lively, vigorous brushstrokes in her paintings of waterways and open fields. She paints in acrylic, oil, and gouache. She states, “Many of my paintings explore the shape and form of water, and by extension, now, the agricultural lands that surround my home in the Rogue Valley. Searching for the shapes that best express my relationship to water and our communal and individual responsibilities to preserve our environment and protect our water is at the core of my world as an artist.” Katy resides in Jacksonville.

Refreshments from Harry & David will be served at the reception.
