Each year JEGA encourages artists to submit original paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and poetry or performance art for jury selection to be considered for the annual art show.

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.”

JEGA looks forward to each year’s entries because “one of the wonders of “Women With Attitude” is creativity, in all senses, all forms.”  Each year 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.

The March show will include the art from Ashland High School students.  The exhibit will run through the month of April and A Taste Of Ashland.  A second opening is the First Friday, April 4, 2014.  Entry deadline for the April show is March 24, 2014.  For more information and applications please contact the JEGA directly (541)488-2474.
