Jaywalking

Joanie Krug & Diane Kingzett

Joanie is intrigued by the mystery and provocative journey of painting. "images transform in unexpected ways to become something differently alive. Pictures become a tapestry of layered colors." Some under-painting is revealed, some remains hidden. Women's postures are gestural and formidable. Diane’s abstract landscapes use form and color with emotion and suggestive atmosphere. "Landscapes emanate energy-from structures, people, animals, and spirits which have passed through space. Abstract landscapes invite viewers to impose their own sense of belonging into scenes remembered or imagined." Her recent paintings are a response to a shift in political and social landscapes and explores internal and external pressures, a longing for escapism and coming to terms with "the way things are".

David Slader presents "Human Being"

David Slader with guests, B. Pat, Jerome Sloan & David Drenth

Gallery 114 is distinctive in allowing each member artist total artistic control over her exhibit. For July, gallery member David Slader has invited three guest artists: three men, two of whom are “lifers,” who created their art in an Oregon penitentiary cell. Work of these prison artists and David’s recent paintings of women join together in a refrain demanding basic dignity for all human beings. Jerome Sloan, David Drenth, and B. Pat, somehow make art with crude materials, including cereal box cardboard, brown paper used to wrap prison laundry, and ground-up M&M’s. Some work is brutal, some tender and poetic; all of it is a complete surprise. David Slader describes stumbling upon oregonprisonart.org and being stunned to discover art of compelling expressive power. "To most of us," he says, "our incarcerated population--which at 14,000 is bigger than many Oregon towns--is invisible." He goes on to point out that anyone who can create art like this "has a soul that cannot be ignored."

Linda Tross

Grounded

An artist who has worked in sculpture for many years, Linda sees a tactile quality of sculpting and hand-building in these paintings. Where her sculptural works are conceptual and metaphorical, these pieces are a pure exploration of color and form.

Play Dolls

Ruth Ross, Jo Ann Michaelis

Two grown women
reimagine their lives
by playing dolls

As a little girl I had played fiercely with my doll. I dressed her, undressed her, rocked her, and threw her against a wall. Here was the opportunity, as an adult, to relive all that. But now I could express it through the filter of what I have learned and what I continue to learn as I come to terms with my frailties.
- Ruth Ross 2015
