The Museum is also featuring activist artist Sister Corita Kent’s vibrant silkscreens made from the 1950’s through 70’s. The exhibitions are on view from April 3 through June 13, 2015. The Museum’s Main and Treehaven galleries feature Southern Oregon Site Project installations by Garrick Imatani and Marlene Alt. This project, funded in part by The Ford Family Foundation, Roseburg, is designed to support the development and presentation of new art by Oregon artists.

Jade Hincks. Student, Business Owner, Artist. South African born and bred, from the moment we meet, you will know me. Having acquired an extensive certificate in Fine Art Photography at the age of 18, my parents and I packed up and relocated to the wonderful US of A. The land of dreams did not fall short: settling in the gorgeous Southern Oregon, pursuing a Masters Degree, living my life to its fullest with loved ones, and not to mention having the rare and shinning opportunity to start my very own small business. As I grow, so do my dreams, and it is with each and every individual with whom I connect that my heart grows tenderer and my passion to capture life burns brighter. Currently 23 and a Bro-ista at Dutch Bros, my life is packed with activity. I aspire to be more like my mother and close circle of friends: graceful, motivated and fearless. Feel free to connect with me at anytime – I welcome any chance to be more involved with the world. www.lilysandhorns.com

Cathy Schoenberg, a painter of some 35 years, lives in the Skagit Valley, 60 miles north of Seattle, on Guemes Island, a short ferry ride from Anacortes, where her studio is located. The work in this exhibition indicates transition: from the figurative to the almost abstraction of flowers, both following a path of complex, vibrant color, patterns, rhythm and vibration. “I started sketching with fervor 4 or 5 years ago, not as a precursor to painting, just for my own enrichment , like a daily practice, as in yoga! But Alas! That is exactly where it led me, To a new frontier: deep onto the texture, shapes, and lush wildness of flowers.” Schoenberg was born in Spokane, WA and obtained a BFA in fine art from Fort Wright College in 1975. Schoenberg’s work has been shown in Skagit Valley area, Seattle, Bellingham, San Juan Island, in various Galleries and venues since 1980.
