"Trio," an exhibit of art by Virginia Andrade of Grants Pass, Robert Buelteman of Montara, Calif., and the artistic team of Wendy and April Hill, will run through Feb. 10 at the Rogue Gallery, 40 S. Bartlett St., Medford.

The group exhibit features abstract watercolor paintings by Andrade, chromogenic photographs by Buelteman and an installation of found objects and mixed media by April and Wendy Hill of Medford and Sunriver, respectively.

The artists' common interest is in using unusual processes and materials to create their unique work.

Andrade creates abstract compositions that explore color, texture and line. By using flowing and gestural marks, her paintings suggest motion and dynamic action. She uses a nonabsorbent paper that allows watercolor pigment to sit on the surface, making the colors vibrant.

Buelteman experiments with botanical subjects and photograms, in which objects are placed on photographic paper and exposed to light. Taking the process a step further, Buelteman's subjects are exposed to xenon-strobe and tunsten lights.

His images of plants vary in shape and color, from earthly and simplistic to dazzling and complex forms.

April and Wendy Hill are a mother and daughter team that has collaborated to produce the installation, "String Things at the Multiplex." The hanging installation is built of about 1,000 tiny paintings framed in photographic slide mounts. April Hill created the paintings and Wendy Hill framed them. They are strung together on yarn and electrical wire and interconnected with glass beads, papier-mâché balls, painted wheels and other small trinkets.

The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Call 541-772-8118 or see www.roguegallery.org.
