FOR FIRST FRIDAY ART OPENING JULY 3rd, 2020 from 5:30pm-8:30pm Ashland Natural Medicine: 180 Lithia Way, Suite 103 ashlandnaturalmedicine.com   The Ethereal Spirit is our special summer season art show at Ashland Natural Medicine.  This nature inspired ethereal collection of  painted leaves and natural yarn handmade “Creations” are a multi-layered effort in the artist crafting process. The hand painted leaves are a family collaboration.  From the Illinois Valley, Joy Hoskins (mother) and her two daughters, Anita & Melanie work closely together to collect, preserve and craft,  “Joy With Leaves”.  Year round, Joy and her daughters enjoy hiking and notice the changes in leaves from season to season.  These intricately crafted leaf paintings are an expression of these seasonal changes, the appreciation and respect for the places they have visited and for the deep love they have for one another. Having leaves passed down from Joy’s father as gifts while growing up, the three of them discovered that Southern Oregon offers a wide range of beautiful shapes, sizes, textures and colors of leaves.  Over twenty years ago they happened to see a […]

“All in the Family” April 5, 2019 – July 1, 2019

Ajana Miki, ND, LAc

“ALL IN THE FAMILY” was inspired last Autumn when the staff at Ashland Natural Medicine (www.ashlandnaturalmedicine.com) realized that when we are not taking care of our amazing patients we find ourselves making art to unwind, to rejuvenate and to dive into our true selves.  The saying is authentic: Art is Life, Life is Art.  For us, art is essential to our personal growth and wellbeing.  It allows us to express ourselves in empowering ways that we cannot normally do in our everyday lives.  It gives us a stronger connection to life and our purpose here, now.  At Ashland Natural Medicine we are not just healers, but we are also jewelers, drawers, photographers, poets, digital artists and painters.  We come with many talents. This special show is a beautiful collection of who we are at the core and what we value.  An important guide in our mission statement says, “Family First”.  We stand behind those words because we strongly feel that if we do not take care of ourselves and our family first then we are unable to reach the potential of taking care of our patients at the highest level […]

Harmonee has always lived her life immersed in creativity.   She enjoys using acrylics, oils and pastels as her favorite mediums.  For Harmonee, “Art for me is a path of discovery and healing. When I begin a painting, I don’t know what I am going to create. I surrender to the Muse and to Love, encountering soulful messages that unfold on the canvas, and then I develop what is revealed to me. This has become one of my primary spiritual practices as I play with the unknown, digest experiences, and deepen in my heart, and the heart of Creativity”. As an artist, she is most influenced by Freydoon Rassouli, who is her mentor and favorite artist.  One can clearly see his influences in her paintings. In addition to being a talented painter, Harmonee is a […]

January 2018, Jennifer Jensen: AFRICA, Fashion & Photography

Jennifer Jensen uses African Textiles and Photographs  to capture the beauty of the animals, places she visited and the people she experienced while on Safari in Africa. She writes, "I was in the Garden of Eden".

ANM Gallery of Contemporary Art is thrilled to host local Ashland artist, Jennifer Jensen’s newest works of art titled:  Africa, Fashion & Photography   This exceptional show is a beautiful combination of creative expression and inspiration from her travels to Selous Game Reserve, in South West Tanzania where she photographed wildlife in the bush and then onto Zanzibar where Jensen purchased African fabrics to bring home and design her clothing. Line, color, shape and texture are just some of the strong art elements that weave together her clothing design choices and carefully selected compositions in each safari image.  The care and attention to detail in creating each clothing and photograph clearly makes a statement of her devotion and passion to her crafts. Each dress, each skirt each jacket, are wearable individual art pieces that are truly stunning.  These garments purposefully are hung on the gallery walls side by side with the photographs.  Together these two different mediums emulate a uniquely original show that ignites the  true essence of Africa’s wildlife, geography, textiles and culture. Meet the artist, Jennifer Jensen Please join us for 1st Friday Art Opening: January 5th, 2018 […]
