SOAR Welcomes Kj Cumberbatch!

Revolution II, by Kj Cumberbatch

The Southern Oregon Artists Resource is excited to introduce artist Kj Cumberbatch of Medford to the Visual Artists directory!

Kj Cumberbatch

Born in 1975, Kj Cumberbatch has been painting for over 25 years, selling many paintings and commissions in the process. However, Cumberbatch’s current exhibition of large acrylic paintings at GoodBean Coffee in Jacksonville is the first public display of his art. Subjects in his current works center around animals and the natural world. Each painting is very impressive both in style and size…the smallest is 36″ x 36″. While we love them all, our favorite is the (roughly) 79″ x 46″ [R]evolution II, painted in 2016-2017. These large-format works are perfect for hanging in large spaces, whether a home, business or nonprofit, or public space. If you’re in the market for such works, catch his show before it ends on February 28,

Perhaps when I create a familiar critter you’ll be reminded of actions that may impact them.” Garfield donates a portion of

The Southern Oregon Artists Resource is delighted to welcome glass artist Jessica Carrara to the Visual Artists Directory! We hope you will join us in a warm welcome by visiting her listing and using the links to visit her website and Facebook page, and giving her page and posts a like. Here’s more about the artist in her own words:

I have always liked to draw and paint. Before I ever touched a piece of stained glass I used draw stained glass designs because I liked the line drawings. Once I learned how to craft glass into stained glass panels in the early 80’s, I was hopelessly hooked. Over the years I have explored mosaics, sandblasted glass, torch work and fused glass. I love it all! Each medium of glass work offers its own unique qualities and can be combined with
