Gallery One
229-B SW G St.

Cherri Van Syoc
Moon Over New York

Gallery One at the Museum is proud to feature one of our abstract artists, Cherri Van Syoc. Van Syoc works similar to a musician, using jazz rhythms to manipulate watercolor across Yupo paper. Her choice of subject matter for this show is "Moon Over New York" because of the wealth of character New York symbolizes to America." The show employs layers of paint on a relatively new support, Yupo paper.

Diane Holston Morris
Mixed Media

HeartSong is pleased to kickoff The Year of The Dragon, 2012 by featuring two talented women from Southern Oregon:

Diane Holston Morris is a mixed media artist born and raised in the Rogue Valley. Inspired by nature, Diane uses acrylics to convey an eclectic mix of her admiration for Egyptian, Buddhist, and Goddess philosophies. Even though it sounds like a cliché, her art truly is her passion. Come see her unique and expressive work.

When you visit us, you can also get an aura photograph and reading from Reverend ShaRon (fee $20). Sharon's aura photography combines modern technology with information known and recognized by ancient civilizations. Ayurveda and acupressure are used in conjunction with kirlian photography, electronic acupuncture, and biofeedback to capture the radiant, colored aura and a perception of your inner, spiritual world as a computer-generated, color photoprint.

Please come and meet these two amazing women.

Chuck King Jewelers
221 SE 6th St

Marty Dedrick
A Passion for Brush & Palette

King Jewelers is very pleased to display the artwork of Grants Pass artist Margaret “Marty” Dedrick. In her own words, Marty describes her passion for the brush and palette:
“My interest in art began in 1980 when a friend gave my husband and I a tole painted gift as a wedding present. Tole painting was my first expression of art. Several years later I took oil lesions at night school classes. Then my sister wowed me with the Old-Masters oil techniques she was learning. After retiring I took five years of Old-Masters lessons in Eureka, CA. Two years after moving to Grants Pass, I began lessons in watercolor. My love for painting in three different mediums must come from the Lord because I truly enjoy them all.

I belong to the Josephine Co Artists Assn. , the Brushstrokers, and Siskiyou Decorative Artists. My husband and I moved here in 2004 – we totally love Grants Pass and are inspired and enjoy all the community activities and expressions of art here.”
