The Unconscious in Paint: 

Micah Ofstendahl

April 4 - May 21, 2019

Ashland artist Micah Ofstedahl combines the conscious observations of science with the subconscious imagination of the mind in his surrealistic acrylic paintings. He was born and raised in Austin, Minnesota and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture and ceramics from Minnesota State University. Micah describes his work as an exploration of the unknown and the importance of its relationship to scientific and human advancement.

Micah states, “I am constantly being amazed by the hidden beauty and complexity of the world and this is largely what I hope to convey to my audience.”

Dianne Jean Erickson has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art from Southern Oregon University. She is a founding member of the contemporary art group AMBUS. For a number of years she had a co-op gallery in Jacksonville then Medford. She has received numerous awards for her artwork and has exhibited throughout the West Coast. She resides in Portland. Dianne uses multiple mediums including, but not limited to, encaustic, acrylic, oil and cold wax, and collage. She works by intuition - a process of creating, figuring out what works, what to keep, and what to abandon. Dianne states, “Creating art energizes me, it’s a place where time is altered, where all my feelings and emotions appear at some time or another; pleased, tired, upbeat, excited, harried, surprised, and hopefully at some point, satisfied.”


Barbara Martin has a MBA as a certified creativity coach. Barbara has received numerous awards including a recent professional development grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council of Oregon. She has exhibited throughout the Northwest. She describes her painting method as a “process of painting intuitively with many primordial (and sometimes surreal) connections flowing naturally into her work”. She finds further inspiration in repressed dreams and the natural world. The paintings in this exhibit are part of the ongoing “Super Ply and Friends” series and consist of black and white paintings on bare plywood. As a process painter, she allows each painting to develop organically so the character and context are not preplanned. Barbara has lived on three continents and in twelve states. She now lives in the Portland area.


Dianne Jean Erickson and Barbara Martin will be at the March 15, Third Friday art reception. Barbara Martin will do a demonstration of her unique process of painting.

Capturing Beauty:

Artists Sheri Dinardi, Ilene Gienger-Stanfield, & David Terry create luminous works in the time honored tradition of oil painting. Their paintings of people, structures, and landscapes beautifully capture a moment in time and the essence of the subject. The Capturing Beauty exhibit features three artists who paint in the traditional oil medium. Creating figurative oil paintings requires talent, training, skill, and perseverance. The process of creating an oil painting requires many hours work due to the slow drying time and the paint properties required in layering the colors. The paintings in this exhibit reflect the expertise of these three artists. They are rich in luminous colors and are of profound beauty. While many of the works are reminiscent of great paintings from the past, each of these artists has developed their own artistic style.

Special classes and workshops:
Color with Ilene Gienger-Stanfield March 1 and 2, 9am–4pm
Essential Elements in a Strong Painting with Sheri Dinardi, April 26 and 27, 9am–4pm

How to Draw People with David Terry, 6 Week Seminar, Thursdays, 11am-3pm, May 2-June 6, 2019
