The 21st Annual Women With Attitude and the Men Who Love Women with Attitude Art Event! JEGA Gallery and Sculpture Garden, Ashland, OR


The 21st Annual Women With Attitude and Men Who Love Women With Attitude Art Exhibit!

This years’ art event opens March 6th 2015 for Women’s History Month and runs through April and the Ashland Gallery Association’s A Taste Of Ashland weekend.  Accepted artwork includes: paintings, sculptures, multimedia, and photography.

Local musicians Aletha Nowitzky, Vanessa Nowitzky, Heather Hutton, and Cornflower will perform strange and wonderful unstructured improv vocals at 6:30 pm during the March 6, 2015 First Friday Art Walk at JEGA Gallery’s “Women With Attitude” show, in celebration of Women’s History Month.

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, the resident artist of the JEGA Gallery believes, women with ‘Attitude,’ and the men who LOVE 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.”
