Like folk art, the exhibition features handmade works that are unpretentious, and often blur the line between functionality and aesthetics. Artisanal woven baskets and tooled-wood objects mix with works that are makeshift, improvisational, and often employ salvaged materials. The exhibition features an intergenerational array of 17 notable artists from throughout the region including Marita Dingus, Warren Dykeman, Joe Feddersen, Blair Saxon-Hill, Sky Hopinka, Jeffry Mitchell, and Cappy Thompson. A playlist of indie folk music selected by Portland’s Mississippi Records, a record label and shop, will accompany the exhibition, filling the galleries with the sound of the Pacific Northwest. Masterworks on Loan will also be on display in the Entry Gallery. The gallery, located at 555 Indiana St. Ashland, will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission is free, donations accepted. See sma.sou.edu or call 541-552-6245 for further details.
