GPMA mid-August News and Events

Mid August 2020 eNews We have been featuring other cultural organizations in our mid month eNews. This month we are highlighting Clayfolk. Each year the members of Clayfolk gather at the museum to have their annual meeting and to pick their booth space for their huge show in November. However, this year, the show has been canceled. We miss them and thought you might like to see some of the members’ creations. This group by no means represents all of the Clayfolk members and we urge you to go to their website and enjoy more. In each case, we will list the artist’s own website so you can explore and even purchase some of their work. Thank you Kristen O’Neill for helping to put this edition together! We hope you are doing well and staying safe. Hyla Executive Director Click here to visit our website Clayfolk In 1976, Clayfolk

Reflection, paintig on silk by Judy Elliott, Grants Pass, Oregon

Judy Elliott Featured Artist at Gallery One

Silk artist Judy Elliott will be the featured artist at Gallery One in Grants Pass and will demonstrate her process for painting on silk on First Friday, July 7th, from 6-7pm.


Judy Elliott’s artwork relates to traditional painting. However, instead of painting on canvas, she uses dye and resist on silk, with an emphasis on wildlife and its preservation. Watch a demonstration of her work on July 7th, 6-7pm at Gallery One in Grants Pass.

After reading countless articles about the perils of nature and it’s wildlife, I chose to express the urgency of man’s awareness and
