Guild Artists Tackle the Times with a New Exhibit, “Chaos & Order” Opening July 17, 2022 from 4-6pm
Southern Oregon Guild artists explore the demands and inspirations for creative expression embedded in the times we’re living through in a new exhibit, Chaos & Order, opening with a celebratory gathering Sunday, July 17, 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Guild Gallery and Art Center in Kerby. The celebration will offer guests the opportunity to interact with the artwork, the artists, and one another to express their own thoughts and feelings about our times – as well as the Guild’s hors d’oeuvres buffet, a wine tasting, and music by Terry D. Davis.
The new exhibit is unique to the Guild’s history of presenting beautiful and functional works of art in a variety of media. One central piece in this new show is a large wire sculpture, The Tree of Hope, co-created by our Board of Directors. It presents the question, "what is our future?" The tree needs leaves, added by guests, expressing hopes and ideas for guidance into a healthy future. Guests and members will explore those questions together in the interactive program. Another piece, Angels Too Soon by Donna Parrish, is a beautiful and poignant memorial to the multitude of angels we have lost before their gifts could become part our world and national fabric. In addition to other new work by familiar Guild artists, Chaos & Order includes the creations of five new Guild members – Alyssa Babin, Dara Daniel, Caitlin B. Rice, David Mills, Jo-el Palacios, and Donner Worley.
The Southern Oregon Guild invites you to our NEW Bi-Monthly Guild Open House Series! Come get inspired, learn about membership, meet your local creatives, watch a demo, or listen to an artist talk.

Proposals will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
The Southern Oregon Guild of Artists & Artisans is seeking proposals from creative people in the Illinois Valley and Josephine County to deliver online workshops on Thursday evenings from 6-8pm this fall, starting in mid-October, as part of our "Creative Community" series.
We use the term "arts" and "artists" in a broad sense, encompassing all forms of creative practice and thinking. And, you don't have to be an expert!
We are looking for proposals that can happen via Zoom and are interactive, engaging, and encourage connections among participants. Your idea might involve just one Zoom meeting or several. We aim to create opportunities for exploration and to strengthen the creative community in southern Oregon’s Josephine County, especially in the Illinois Valley.
The Guild will provide support in coming up with ideas, facilitation, Zoom access, promotion and outreach, and a small stipend, depending on participation. Workshops will be offered for free with a suggested donation; 10% of the donations will go to the presenter with a $50 minimum guaranteed.
Treat yourself to a day at award winning Bridgeview Vineyard & Winery, while learning to paint and draw from life with local landscape artist Silvia Trujillo on Saturday September 17 from 10am-5pm. With over two decades of teaching experience, Silvia will guide you in completing a unique piece of art with your choice of materials that captures the essence of the vineyard scenery! Cultivate your own creative voice working directly from nature, while receiving loads of personal attention and instruction. All skill levels are welcome!
Class Fee includes 1 drink ticket that may be redeemed for a glass of wine of your choosing. Wines will be available for tasting and purchase throughout the workshop. Bridgeview Vineyard & Winery specializes in German varietals such as Riesling, and currently has a gold medal award winning Oregon Pinot Noir that has received a 89 point rating with Wine Spectator and is a great value!
