For the Love of Art - Jacksonville Elementary School 9th Annual Art Exhibition

 

Thursday, March 21st, 2013 from 5-7:30 pm at Jacksonville Elementary Gymnasium

Students at Jacksonville Elementary School have learned about perspective, pointillism, color and collage. They can tell you the difference between fine art and illustration – realism and abstraction. A unique partnership of parents, teachers, administrators and community members study and teach art in K-6 classrooms to bring their students an excellent art program.

Between October and March, parents lead the students through projects designed to teach art basics such as shape, color, line and texture. Parent volunteers are in the process of teaching 20+ projects to their students. They’ve introduced students to the work of master artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keefe, Vincent van Gogh, Albrecht Dürer, Eric Carle and Henri Matisse. They’ve exposed students to a wide variety of materials and techniques that include: paints, pastels, clay, wire, textile and gourd.

Art and Soul Gallery Chasing the Muse

Harlequin, mixed media by Dixie Kinser

Original paintings by Dixie Kinser

“My paintings represent my journey in chasing my “muse.” I sometimes think, “Ah ha, now I have her.” Then later she taunts me to find her again. It is a constant search to find her in each painting or when working dyeing silk. Actually, dyeing silk was the beginning of my journey. Later I tried watercolor and finally acrylic became my favored medium. I now frequently find that the two mediums work well with each other in my pursuit of the muse.”

Dulcimer Music by Douglas Ross

Art & Soul Gallery is into its 14th year as one of Ashland’s largest and most popular gallery, featuring the work of over 30 regional artists. Many award winning, nationally recognized artists are represented. On exhibit is original art in oil, pastel, mixed
