ExhibitionsIn the Main Gallery:Sandra Poteet: Grayscale in FiberAugust 3 – September 29The choice of cloth as a medium sometimes sets me in the midst of the never-ending argument about what is art and what is craft—so many opinions. I am clear that my work is art, but I can resolve to say that if the viewer also decides my work is “Art,” it is well-crafted. If chosen to be seen as “Craft” pieces, they are artful, designed, and executed by me to provoke an aesthetic or emotional response. If an original work has integrity and can touch someone's sensibilities - is the distinction critical? My Grayscale series of fabric work eliminates the significant element of color, which challenges me to create pieces that emphasize the other (often overlooked) components such as value, texture (particularly texture), line, and shape. As is true of all my work, most fabrics are repurposed, scrapped, or gifted. That translates to reversing the process where the concept occurs first, and the materials are obtained to achieve the goal. I start with the material and grow the design from its nature. It is folded, painted, melted, appliquéd, printed, and stitched by hand and machine.
Acoustic jazzy and soulful duo Allison and Victor, celebrate the release of new music Nation of Jubilation with a performance amidst the sweeping views of Dancin Vineyards on Friday, September 29, 5pm-7pm, in the wine country, on the outskirts of Medford.
With Allison on guitar and vocals, and Victor on tenor saxophone and vocals, their sound is described as “blending elements of folk, jazz, blues, European and Latin music, all of which translates into a laid-back, tranquil vibe that tends to put people at ease.” (Jim Dyar, Enjoy Magazine) This performance will also include some songs in French, as Allison was raised in Belgium where she learned to read and write.
Dancin Vineyards is located at 4477 S. Stage Rd., Medford, Oregon, just outside of Jacksonville, OR. Advanced reservations are highly recommended by visiting www.dancin.com or call 541-245-1133. For more on the artists visit www.allisonandvictor.com
