Klamath Art Gallery

   "Where Art Lives"  

Exhibiting in October 2020:

Relativity: A Family Affair

The Klamath Art Gallery is delighted to announce its October 4 - 25 th  exhibit featuring the memorable works of Liz Hubbard and her family including everything from photography, painting, to pottery. Since the Gallery is limited on space, social distancing will be observed and visitors must wear masks. The exhibit will continue through Sunday, October 25th. with extended hours every Saturday for the month of October of 10:00 to 5:00. Saturdays will be staffed by Liz Hubbard who will be happy to answer questions about this exhibit. 

The idea for Relativity came to Liz Hubbard as she watched her nieces and nephews create art. It was pre-COVID days and the show was meant to be an artistic family reunion. Flash forward to today. Two of the families in Oregon just spent the last week evacuated by forest fires while the rest of us are laying low while the pandemic still hangs over our heads. But like all of the art world, the family continues to create finding some measure of peace in working with their hands.

Liz Hubbard spent the summer studying indigo dyes, growing Japanese Indigo plants in her back yard and extracting the pigment. With the pigment she made a variety of types of indigo vats to dye fiber shades of blue. Look for linen fabric, wool yarns, and silk scarves dyed with the indigo and other plants at the October show. Along with the natural dyed articles there will be felted wool pieces made to look like river rocks. The natural look of the grey stone felt brings a soothing decor to a room.

Much of the art at the October show will come from extended family from Cave Junction. The Nordal family; Jim, Ginger, Kynan and Lander work in an astonishing number of mediums. You will find gorgeous pottery created by the family. Ginger does water colors of natural scenes. Lander has carved one-of-kind wooden spoons.

Emerging artists include Jim Rodgers with his welded cowboy figurines, Jim is a millwright and uses his talent for creating metal art. His daughter Shelby will be showing her watercolors for the first time. And exciting time for any artist is the first time their art goes up for the public.  Another emerging artist is Ragan Bodnar. Ragan paints abstract landscapes in acrylic

Showing for the first time will also be Nicole Kandra with striking black and white photography of rock climbing scenes. Nicole is an athletic trainer at OIT and spends her free time running, riding bikes, climbing and taking fantastic photos.

Family from Idaho, Washington DC, and Las Vegas will be showing leatherwork, beadwork, and one-of-a-kind prints. Making this show a delightful mix and something that everyone will enjoy looking at. 

The Klamath Art Gallery is proud to host and encourage all these young emerging artists. We are also looking forward to seeing some professional work from out of our area with the Nordal family.

A few months per year are dedicated to group shows. The gallery not only shows work from local artists and photographers, but also hosts shows by artists from outside the region. Admission is free. From time to time KAA offers instructional classes that are open to the public, as are all of our events. The
