First Friday Shows and New Works by Silvia Rothschild Trujillo

Indian Memorial, oil painting by Silvia Rothschild Trujillo

During the holidays (and all year ’round), do you ever find yourself needing to slow down but you just can’t? I think this is one of the divine purposes of art… to bring us to our senses in the most literal way, and create a sense of awe out of something as simple as oil on canvas. Whether you are in Southern Oregon, Northern California or someplace beyond, I have some events and suggestions to help you experience that sense of wonder and connection through art. Read on…

“Following the Circuitous Thread” Show of Mixed Media Paintings by Eve Margo Withrow Art & Soul Gallery – August 2017

I’m always curious to explore the edge that lies outside the box. From that perspective, I reflect on the essential feeling ingredients of an experience or place.

Eve is an international award winning professional Artist and part owner of Art and Soul Gallery in Ashland , Oregon.

Please join us for a festive evening of Fine Art, Music by Rick Millward, conversation and some refreshing nibbles!

Ashland Gallery Association – March Spotlight Exhibits Ashland Art Center Upstairs Featured Artists: Susanne Petermann & Darlene Southworth Techno-color

With watercolor and collage, Susanne Petermann and Darlene Southworth create landscapes not visible to the unaided eye: parts hidden inside machines and computers, interiors of plants and animals, and outer space. Thus the images appear abstract though they are actually representational

Featured Photographer: Julie Bonney Delicate Beauty

Julie Bonney is a widely traveled local photographer who will be sharing a selection from her recent work, “Delicate Beauty” during March. Favorite photography subjects for many are flowers. They speak the language of the heart touching us in ways that open us to the natural world. However, the challenge is to showcase them in ways that are less common and create a desire in the viewer to stop and take them in. Photography workshops can be a source of inspiration when things feel
