First Friday Art Walk: New Sanctuary One Animal Paintings by Dana Feagin

Dana Feagin’s expressive animal portraits are eye-catching and memorable. She has an innate ability to show animals’ funny, quirky characteristics. She paints portraits of pets and rescue animals from local shelters. For the month of October, Dana is showing seven new paintings of rescue animals from Sanctuary One, a non-profit care farm in Jacksonville, OR. Ten percent of sales from these paintings and associated prints and cards will be donated to Sanctuary One. Come see her latest works at the top of the stairs in the Studio Artist Gallery at AAC!
  • Friday, October 4, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm
  • As always, visitors will find galleries, open studios, art, and artists on all three floors of the Art Center. There will also be refreshments and live music.

Come see the art of this session’s Artist in Resident, Shannon Yost! Shannon is inspired by color and has found that floral patterns find their way into her art. She has been working on a series of multi-process prints that relate to everyday life in the Rogue Valley.
