June 1 - June 30

Art & Soul Gallery
Following the Circuitous Thread: Mixed Media Paintings by Jenay Elder
I take great delight in creating one-of-a-kind paintings using mixed media and collage materials. My paintings are magical, surrealistic, impressions reflecting the essential feeling ingredients of an experience or place. Many of my favorite and most exciting works are the result of finding creative solutions to things run amok a few times over. I play and adventure with my expressions, following threads here and there, thus entering the flow of my creative process; head and heart awake and in balance. – Eve Margo Withrow

Hanson Howard Gallery
John/Robin Gumaelius & Robert Koch
Robin and John Gumaelius, collaborating artists and husband and wife, create articulated human and birdlike sculptures. They combine ceramic, steel, and wood as they form highly inventive sculptures that are often comical or bizarre. Elements of children’s stories, religious icons, reliquaries, Medieval and Renaissance history, African skin decoration, and holy relics from Germany can be seen in their work.

Gestural strokes and spontaneous marks collide with color blocks in Robert Koch’s narrative vignettes. Often prompted by found photographs, Koch takes the liberty to make his subjects humans or creatures inhabiting the same world. Having the appearance of quickness and even naiveté, Koch’s deft drawing skills mean each mark is playful and intentional at the same time.

Hours: 
Thursday – Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and by appointment.

Address and Contact Information: 
89 Oak Street, Ashland, OR 97520

Fiber Arts Collective
In July 2020, Tanya Bemis gathered a group of fiber artists in Lithia Park to discuss the possibility of starting a Fiber Arts Collective in an available building in downtown Ashland. Out of that meeting, in the middle of a pandemic, an amazing community resource was born. In a short time it has become a creative inspiration to fiber and textile artists throughout the area, offering a fabric store and an art gallery space for fiber artisans in its Ashland location. Once the pandemic is over, the Fiber Arts Collective will offer classes and resources for the community. Meanwhile, it supports local social justice issues and encourages efforts to recycle and upcycle fiber resources.

The work of approximately 30 artisans is featured. From sewing, dyeing, knitting, crocheting, embroidering, and felting to binding, collaging, painting, printing, stenciling, beading, and creating assemblage pieces, their artisans are hard at work adding beauty to the world.

Hours: 
Wednesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Address and Contact Information: 
37 N 3rd Street, Ashland, OR 97520
