Main Street, Ashland 541-941-1202 Pamela.haunschild@ mccombs.utexas.edu www.pamhaunschild.com www.facebook.com/ pamhaunschildartist Pam Haunschild focuses on painting nature’s rhythms, patterns, and colors. She largely works with saturated watercolors washed over natural materials like shells, stones, and plants. Natural images surface within layered, abstract patterns. Small carved details pull viewers in and invite reflection on the role of nature in our lives. Her work is in many private and corporate collections and can be seen at Art&Soul Gallery and Rogue Gallery and Art Center. Thalia Suzuki Keple Mixed Media Jewelry and Weaving Ashland Art Center 357 E. Main Street, Studio 8 Ashland, OR 97520 541-292-8785 tkeple@gmail.com www.ThaliaKeple.com I create one-of-a kind jewelry and wearable art that combines the ethnic traditions of Asian and Western cultures with modern techniques. I begin each needlewoven necklace with fibers and yarns, then add metals, semi-precious stones and beads for strength and sparkle. My newest necklaces are made of vintage kimono and obi clothing. My scarves are handwoven on a floor loom using traditional and modern techniques, including beading and supplemental warps. 30 Ashland Gallery Guide Robert Koch Painting 360-338-8013 Hanson Howard Gallery 89 Oak Street Ashland, OR 97520 kochrobert4260@comcast.net www.flickr.com/photos/rwkoch In my paintings, I strive to convey the unfiltered purity of the mystery and magic in everyday life. Many of my paintings are of anonymous people. Some are perplexed, and some are disturbed, while others are proud and others are completely innocent of the chaos around them. To me, a successful painting is one that not only has a good composition, color and forms, but also has a story to tell. If I finish a painting and it makes me smile or laugh, then I know I have done what I set out to do. Claudia Law Fiber Art 762 B Street, Ashland 541-488-4129 fabart@ashlandoregon.org claudiadoesfabart. wordpress.com I have a serious relationship with fabric! Color, texture, depth, movement, luminosity and creating the illusion of transparency are my focus. My joy is the inexpressibly beautiful in nature: trees, birds, the sky. Things so beautiful that I feel compelled to try and express their essence. To achieve this, I work from a base of high-grade quilting cotton, on which I use paints, beading, thread sketching, 3-D fabric motifs, and folded fabrics of all types. Laura Lawrence Knit Wearable Art & Soft Jewelry Studio 7, Ashland Art Center 357 E. Main Street Ashland, OR 97520 541-631-2270 laclawrence@mac.com www.MyDancingThreads.com When Laura began designing needlepoint canvases in the ‘70s, she coined the phrase “painting with yarn.” That concept informed her fiberart journey leading to internationally exhibited handwoven tapestries. It now describes her wearable art knits. Experiments in combining multiple textures and fibers such as alpaca, rayon, and silk has resulted in art that flatters the wearer, while serving the practical purpose of clothing her! Elaine Frenett has had illustrations published from New York to San Francisco, her fine art collected by museums and most recently, her plein air event pieces either winning awards or selling the very night of the opening reception. Staying true to her life-long love affair with watercolor, she’s experimenting more, seeing what emerges from out of dried pigments and patterns. Leading women’s retreats and teaching workshops rekindles Elaine’s enthusiasm and dedication to the creative.
