JEGA presents works by the following artists: Judy Benson LaNier, Michael Fansler, Catie Faryl, Eileen Pollock, Rebecca Tallulah, Lucious M. Upshaw and Daniel Verner. Such an incredible array of entries have come in from talented Women AND Men in our Rogue Valley and beyond! These works comprising photographs, sculptures, drawings, paintings and performance art provoke a whole spectrum of thoughts and bring forth a whole range of emotions.

What is a woman with attitude? J. Ellen Austin, artist and owner of the JEGA Gallery believes, “‘Women With Attitude,’ and the men who believe in us, exhibit courage in their daily lives and strive to give back to others, their communities and society at large.” J. Ellen goes on to say, “I’m talking about women and men who do something with their lives and keep on doing, keep on learning, growing and contributing.” “Attitude” symbolizes an outlook and respect for other peoples’ philosophies, lifestyles and cultural diversities while retaining a youthful willingness to learn and grow from new knowledge and experiences.”

An Art triplex designed and built by resident sculptor J. Ellen Austin, where artists live above and work below. Includes the JEGA Gallery & Sculpture Garden, Studio AB and Shepard’s Dream on the corner of 5th & A Street, nestled in Ashland’s Historic RR District.

The JEGA Gallery and Sculpture Garden, Inc., is a working art studio with exhibits that include a bodacious mix of visual and contemporary art.
