Curtis Keeler Featured Artist at South Stage Cellars

SOAR member Curtis Keeler is the featured artist for June at South Stage Cellars in Jacksonville. His mixed media paintings are dimensional, colorful, and have a consistent dose of humor you will love. We adore the way he lifts key elements off the canvas by rendering them with recycled bits of metal. See them for yourself — Join him for a reception on 6/13! The Cellar’s receptions are generally from 5:30 – 8pm, but you might want to call to make sure.

South Stage Cellars is located at 125 S. 3rd Street in Jacksonville, Oregon. You can call them at 541-899-9120. Contact Curtis at 541-621-0667.

Poets & Painters Workshop with Mindy Carpenter & Anna Elkins

poets and painters workshop with Mindy Carpenter and Anna Elkins 6/24/17 at South Stage Cellars

My talented friend Anna Elkins and I are hosting an upcoming workshop on Saturday, June 24th! It’s called Poets & Painters and will combine our love of writing, painting, words, color and imagery. We will paint an 8″x10″ very simple, loose still life, write freestyle prose poetry around the piece, paint the words into the painting, around or underneath so only you know they are there or a combination of both. Still life objects and “mise en scene” will be provided. The class will be fun, nurturing, a creative jumping off to both your writing and your art.

ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED, including light snacks. Wine available for purchase as it will be held in the lovely outdoor patio at South Stage Cellars. Class size limited. No experience necessary. This is an expressive fun workshop with no rules, just showing up for yourself.

New member Melody Blore to show at South Stage Cellars.

Welcome to Our New Member, Melody Blore

The Southern Oregon Artists Resource is delighted to welcome our newest member, painter Melody Blore. Please take a moment to visit her listing and follow the links to explore her online presence.

Melody Blore leads a quirky and colorful not-so-still life. She and her husband Darrell retired to Jacksonville, Oregon from Southern California in 2010. On a whim, she opened A French Bouteaque four months later. What began as a Parisian-style tearoom soon evolved into a source for those with “Tea Party Spirit.” It claimed to be “imagined and created by a Fancy Nancy / funky Martha Stewart kinda gal…A creative cottage full of imagination and magical experiences.”

When she closed, customers asked, “what will you do now?” She said she would paint. Her whimsical works reflect all her bouteaque embodied—a spirit of celebration. Melody paints in acrylic with a happy color

An Invitation from Anna Elkins to Take Heart Reception

anna elkins to take heart reception

You are invited to my art reception on Saturday, 8 October at South Stage Cellars. The exhibit is called Take Heart: The Art of Encouragement.

 

To say “take heart” is to encourage. To encourage is to inspire with spirit and hope. And the Latin root of “encourage” is cor—heart. It all comes back to the heart.

 

Alongside the paintings, I am launching my new greeting card line that night. The cards are a mix of encouraging images and poetry: perfect for giving away, keeping for yourself, or both!

 

You will also find the familiar combo of award-winning wine, complementary nibbles, and live music. But there’s a special twist this time around: the evening is also a fundraiser.

 

To continue the cycle of encouragement, I am giving 10% of all art and card sales on the reception night to The Studio at LivingOpportunities—and an ongoing 10% of
