Art Presence Art Center cautiously continues the new hours introduced last month. The gallery is now open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12–5 pm.
Our guest exhibit for June showcases fiber art by members of the Southern Oregon Longarm Association (SOLA). SOLA is a group of textile artists dedicated to educating, supporting, and promoting each other in their chosen medium. They meet bi-monthly in non-Covid times, and each year they devise a voluntary, open-ended challenge to stretch themselves and demonstrate the unique variety of their art. The challenge is open to all members, beginners as well as people who have been exploring their creativity in this realm for over 20 years.
A longarm is a machine used to stitch layers of fabric together. Traditionally, this machine is used to machine-stitch bed quilts. This exhibit shows the longarm’s potential and uses that extend far beyond its original purpose. Please be sure to stop in the gallery and see this wonderful show!
We also have a fresh collection of member artworks hanging in the main gallery through the end of the month. There’s something for just about everyone on display, so be sure to stop in the gallery and see for yourself!
If you feel safer viewing the show at home, please visit our website for a virtual tour. Call Anne Brooke at 541-941-7057 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the art that catches your eye or schedule a private gallery viewing.
