Claire Duncan’s work, Dialogs with the Anthropocene drew the attention of OPB’s Oregon Art Beat and they did a wonderful feature of Claire and her paintings.
The theme of this year’s Ashland Independent Film Festival is Apocalypse and Hanson Howard Gallery is joining in this year along with the Schneider Museum of Art to bring visual artists into the fold of the AIFF events. We feel very fortunate to have the incredible video and photomontage work of Deborah Oropallo in the gallery. Her series, Dark Landscapes for a White House spotlights images of global traumas that often go unreported. Oropallo presents this work as “journalism in a visual form”. Deborah is represented by Catharine Clark Gallery in S.F., CA. Images courtesy of the artist and Catharine Clark Gallery.
There will be a reception for the artist and Deborah will speak about her work on April 11th 5:30-7:00 pm. Show runs through April 23rd.

Using graphite & ink with encaustic, Cathy Valentine layers lines and colors with rich results.
Encaustic is a mixture of beeswax and resin. The artist works with it in a melted state incorporating pigment, oils, ink, collage, and more. This is a medium that lends itself experimenting.
Each layer is fused to the previous layer by heating it up to the melting point again.
Simultaneously tricky and satisfying to work with, this is an addictive material.
For Cathy it seems effortless; the result is a surface so soft and sheeny you want to touch it and layers of energetic marks and rich color.
