AGA Spotlight Exhibits
Bruce Bayard: The Disintegration Series and Broken Trains
Studio A.B November 4–30, 2016
Two new series of digital image collages by Ashland artist Bruce Bayard are on display November at Studio A.B. Both series are photographic based with layers of texture to evoke something beyond the surface image.
The Disintegration Series is comprised of images that start with a poor-quality photograph, which is then combined with layers of texture to further damage its appearance. Snapshots taken from a moving car, landscapes under high-noon sunlight, and thoroughly undramatic seascapes are eroded and defaced to evoke deteriorating memories of metaphoric places.
Broken Trains are extremely wide panoramas of the box cars and freight cars that roll slowly through the Ashland Railroad District. The panoramas are not continuous but rather successive multiple quick-shutter stills combined to create a disjunct view, making quick jumps between shots. Five sequential images are then combined with multiple layers of abstract textures to reconnect the images with a new kind of visual rhythm.
Studio A.B is at 621 A Street in Ashland. The exhibit runs through the end of November.

Art on Paper: 10 Women Artists
The Schneider Museum of Art is excited to present a new exhibition, Art on Paper: 10 Women Artists from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation featuring the works of ten internationally renowned female artists. Please join us on Thursday, October 27, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM for a public opening reception of the exhibition.
Art on Paper: 10 Women Artists celebrates the prominence of ten women artists. The exhibition will feature works by Polly Apfelbaum, Jennifer Bartlett, Louise Bourgeois, Ann Hamilton, Louise Nevelson, Judy Pfaff, Kiki Smith, Pat Steir, Sarah Sze, and Barbara Takenaga. These artists have broken beyond the glass ceiling and blazed trails for many artists working today. Each has contributed to the conversation of art history in a major way and each has a genius to their sensibilities.
Scott Malbaurn, Schneider Museum of Art Director states: “History has shown us that women artists, as well as artists of diverse cultural backgrounds, have often been placed in the margins… What we have learned from going deeper into art history and mining work from these margins is that an uncounted number of women have created work that exemplifies our culture and time in which it outweighs the work of many their male counterparts.”

“Serendipity” – Watercolor painting by Kay Myer
Watercolor unleashed by Kay Myer. Serendipity means, “good luck in finding valuable things unintentionally – making discoveries through chance.”
“This is me! It best describes my daily painting journey in watercolor, as I never paint from a photograph for a realistic transfer. What evolves is what I have seen or felt, not what I “know” is there.”
“Although I have painted for many years and my work hangs in many states in the USA and also internationally, I don’t have a long summary of credentials to list. My accolades are the countless daily hours of the pure joy of painting and the inner peace has been my ultimate reward. What a crown to wear!”
