SOUL CARDS

A Workshop

Offered by

Eve Margo Withrow.

Create images from the depths of your soul. Use them to nourish and evoke your own insight and creativity.  Let them be mirrors through which to reflect upon your own soul.

Soul cards are created on 5”X8” cardstock from magazine images and possibly pictures from your own past combined in a collage piece.  These collective images are sometimes like surrealistic dreamscapes bubbling up from the subconscious…..showing us to ourselves.

Join me on Wednesday, June 19th

From 1-4 p.m. in my Medford studio

Cost is $40, materials provided

It’s Official

 June Newsletter

It’s official. I am now part owner/director of Art and Soul Gallery in Ashland! I am honored to be a part of a group with so much talent and integrity in leadership. We have several new artists added to the already outstanding group showing at the gallery. The energy there is vibrant and sales are spectacular. Stop in and see for yourself. The address is 247 East Main St. and the hours are 10 to 6 Tuesday through Sunday.

Yesterday I taught “Intuitive Painting” in the studio of a fellow artist in Eagle Point. This is my second class in this wonderful venue. I am always astounded at what creative solutions the participants come up with when they get out of their own way and let the creative juices flow. It was so much fun and the results magnificent!

The month of June, I will be showing 20 of my large paintings at the Rogue Valley Manor Gallery. There is a “meet the artist” reception on Wednesday, June 5th from 5-6pm.

The weekend of June 7-9 I will be showing my garden “sparklers”, fountains, and sculpture at the Art for the Home and Garden show in Ashland. This show is in the home and gardens of two artists a block apart. The settings are gorgeous, the artwork superb. It is a very fun show to attend. I have attached the information for you.eMail_Art_Garden_2013_v001

The monthly ‘Intuitive Painting” class is Saturday, June 1st is here in my home studio. This class is an exploration of techniques and possibilities to loosen your painting style and enjoy the freedom of playful, authentic expression. Call now to reserve your place. Class is from 1-4 pm. And cost is $45. All materials provided. If you’d like to bring a piece or two of your own that you don’t know what to do with next, please do. We will find it.

On Saturday June 22nd I will be teaching “Intuitive Painting” in Grants Pass at Major Art and Framing. The class is from 10am to 4pm. We will be exploring many textural techniques and I will show my own techniques for you to experience. The paint needs time to dry between layers. This is why we will meet all day. The studio space is large and open so there is lots of room to explore our creative souls. Let me know soon if you are interested in joining in the fun. Cost is $90 including all materials. You may bring some of your own paintings if you’d like to explore possibilities for completing them. This class is great for beginners and more experienced artists alike.

Good News Busy Times

The good news is that I have been offered a treasure.  At least that’s how I see it.  As of May 21st, I will be one of the six Owner/Directors of Art and Soul Gallery in Ashland, Or. Among my functions will be Treasurer….get it?  I remember being a child and wishing to grow up and own an Art gallery.  Now I do.  I have shown my paintings there for a few years and I’ve always been impressed with the integrity and professionalism of the directors and the high quality of the artwork shown.  It is also a very friendly and supportive environment for the artists and the public.  I could not wish for more.  Now I only hope that my left-brain still functions effectively!

This week I was notified that I had three paintings accepted into the Members Gallery at Rogue Gallery and Art Center.  They will hang for three months and allow me the opportunity to show at the Members Annual Exhibition next Fall.

The Rogue Valley Manor Gallery will be the home of 20 of my larger paintings for the month of June.  There is a brief reception from 4:30-6 pm on June 5th.  This is a newly remodeled gallery area so the work should look great.

The weekend of June 7,8 and 9 is the annual Art for the Garden, Art for the Home show in Ashland.  I will be selling beaded garden “sparklers, clay fountains and sculpture.  I’ll be sending out the details as the time gets closer.

Upcoming Classes:

Saturday, June 1st. The monthly Intuitive Painting class will be held here at my studio in Medford on Saturday, May 4th. from 10am – 4pm.  We will be doing the painting process I use in my work.  It takes time for drying between layers so we will be rotating about 3 paintings that day. Warm weather will certainly help that along. I will provide all materials but if you have a painting you feel needs more inspired work, do bring it.  Also bring a lunch and wear grubbies. Cost for the day is $90. Space is limited. 

 Saturday June 22nd:  The same Intuitive Painting class offered on the 1st will be offered in Grants Pass at Major Art and Framing, 1951 Redwood Ave. Grants Pass OR. There is more studio space here than in my home studio so do join us. 

All these dates will be on the Calendar on my website. Please contact me at 541-772-6888 or at eveatevemargowithrowdotcom  (eveatevemargowithrowdotcom)   or through my website at www.evemargowithrow.com

 

Manifesting Angels Workshop

Angel 5Angel 7

 

 

 

Recently, I worked with a group of about a dozen girls who are part of the Children’s Advocacy Center’s teen mentoring program.  The generous and creative Anna Loeffler provides various frequent programs for the girls with the understanding that personal expression in the visual arts is a safe yet powerful way for the girls to speak their truth and in turn learn about themselves in a symbolic and profound way.

Our focus that day was Manifesting Angels. What is it that you want to manifest in your life at this time? And, of course, in order to have the help of an Angel, you must only ask and they will gladly lend a hand. I explained to them that in order to manifest or bring noticeable change into being, their job is to first have the thought, then the feeling that it already exists and finally to take action.

Once they thought and felt what they wanted, they worked intuitively to find images from magazines, which supported those.  They cut background shapes from sheets of foam core and then cut and glued their images onto the shape.  There were lots of embellishments available also: feathers, beads, yarn, clay faces, sequins, etc. They took full advantage.

They worked with enthusiasm and focus.  I was very touched with the way they lent support to one another who was temporarily “stuck”.  There was a loyalty and respect present that was admirable.

It is a powerful reminder that with compassionate guidance and support the wounded and disenfranchised among our youth can find their strength and humanity.  I so respect the work Anna does.

As you can see, the results were fabulous!

CERTIFIED!
As of last week, I am now proudly certified as a teacher of The ENNEAGRAM STUDIES IN THE NARRATIVE TRADITION. Briefly, the Enneagram is a powerful and dynamic psychological and spiritual system that describes nine distinct and fundamentally different patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting. The nine habitual patterns of attention greatly affect every aspect of our lives.
My study of this system has helped build awareness, compassion and acceptance of others and myself through understanding how each of our personalities actually operates. It also offers a concrete focus of attention to get out of our individual “box” that constrains us. I plan to integrate a creative expression component to some of the classes
If you’re curious, you can go to www.EnneagramWorldwide.com to find out more and to take a survey to type yourself.
Classes will begin soon and am still wondering about the class format: One or two day overviews? Nine weekly classes.? Nine monthly classes? Evenings? Weekends? Please let me know your preferences.
THE ROGUE VALLEY BIENNIAL-2013 at the Grants Pass Museum of Art at 229 SW G st. runs from March 1-April 26th. I have a piece of Sculpture in this show. The museum is open Tuesdays-Saturdays from noon-4pm. The Artists will be present on First Friday March 1 and April 5 and for the Opening Reception on March 14th from 6-8pm. It would be great to see you there.
JOSEPHINE COUNTY ART ASSOCIATION will hold it’s Monthly meeting on March 7th and I will be the guest Artist demonstrating my unique painting techniques.

Horray!

I have had four paintings selected for the “10th Annual Color: Bold/Subtle Juried Online International Art Exhibition” at the Upstream People Gallery.

The exhibition will debut worldwide on December1, 2012 at www.UpstreampeopleGallery.com.  This show will be featured for one month and then moved to the “Archive” section of the web site.  The exhibition will run for a complete 12 months.  The gallery enjoys a phenomenal global viewership with multi-million views since inception.

You may remember that I won an award at this gallery in 2010 with my “Alaska” series I did after my life-changing trip in Alaska.  Those paintings can be seen on my website at www.evemargowithrow.com.

A reminder:  I am teaching Intuitive Painting the first Sunday of the month here at my home studio.  The next class is Sunday, December 2nd from 1-4pm.  The cost is $45 including most materials.  The painting processes are different each session.

I will also be teaching the second of four “Doorways to the Soul” classes on Sunday, December 16th  from 1-4pm.  Cost is $45 including materials. “ Manifesting Angels” is the theme.  This is a great chance to focus on what you care to MANIFEST in your life.  It is a fun and powerful experience.  Check my website under the “Learn” section for details.

My Enneagram studies have been intense.  I have completed more than 20 typing interviews and am now ready to interview panels of 4 or 5 people of the same Enneagram type.  If you know your Enneagram type and would like to be a part of these panels, please let me know. 

This is all preparation for my certification in February as a teacher of the Enneagram. Traveling the amazing bridge between personality and spiritual essence is a lifetime journey into the self.  The Enneagram has clarified my path thus far and I am excited about the potential for future personal growth for my students and myself.  Perhaps you will choose to share the journey with me.
