Ashland Gallery Association February Spotlight Exhibits


 
Hanson Howard Gallery
40th Anniversary: Works from the Collection of Hanson Howard Gallery
 
2019 is our 40th anniversary and that has us feeling like taking a trip down memory lane. Over the years, the gallery has amassed a healthy collection of exceptional regional artists who have at some point been represented by us. Was there an artist that you loved and no longer see at the gallery? Maybe you wish you had collected one of their works.  Now you may have a second chance.
Join us in February for an exhibition of works from the Hanson Howard Collection made available for purchase at original prices, maybe even with some flexibility as we may have held onto a little too much work….who can blame us?!
Show runs February 1st - 26th.  Opens First Friday, February 1st, 5-8 pm.

Photographing in the comforts of home on cold winter days is one of Debra's favorite things to do.  She enjoys creating still life scenes reminiscent of old paintings.  These images include some of her beloved possessions such as her collection of English White Ironstone.  The natural light streaming in from nearby windows is all that is needed to "paint" the items being photographed.  Debra's still life images truly reflect her personal style not only in photography but also in her home.
 
Shepherd’s Dream
“Pictorial Lullabye” Paintings by Lindy Kehoe
 
Lindy Kehoe’s fantastical illustration style is its own mythos. This Pittsburgh native received her B.F.A in 2001 at Ohio University. Her adventurous spirit led her to the West Coast in 2005, where she began exhibiting with the Visionary Artist Community. She has been living on the Rogue River in S. Oregon with her California-born husband who has been a deep inspiration to her work. Landscapes depicting dreamy characters and animals can be seen throughout her paintings.  Lindy works in a variety of mediums, including oils, acrylics, ink and watercolor, as well as, graphite.  Her intention of creation is steeped in the celebration of the child-heart wonder.  Lindy also has expertise in live painting during her exhibitions and this month is no exception.

 She says of her work..."My work is inspired by serendipity, a momentary feeling of interconnected magic, that often feels like a dream.  I am motivated to create images that bring peaceful energy to the viewer, a place of remembrance, a place of innocence.  The Oracular tendency keeps me fascinated by the mystical process." 
 
She will be joined by a special musician of her choice and a foodie to round out our February event.

Botanical sources of the blue dye, Indigo, have been used for thousands of years by people of many cultures to color natural fibers. This exhibit will demonstrate the wide color range that can be achieved with natural Indigo dyes and outline the process used to dye with Indigo plants. Handmade garments and textile wall art pieces dyed with Indigo will be featured.
