//FELINE FAMILIARS// 

a group benefit show this First Friday in October/November 2017

It is with great pleasure that Redux announces our upcoming benefit group show entitled “FELINE FAMILIARS”. This show will be in appreciation of felines, and will recognize black cats in particular, with half of the proceeds benefitting CAT, (the Cat Adoption Team) a feline only no-kill shelter in Sherwood, OR.

We are honored to make this announcement on Black Cat Appreciation Day, August 17th, and encourage folks to visit the CAT website for more information on how to adopt black cats with no fees today!

*Thanks to Jenna Barton for use of your image for show promotion!

A bit about the show:
The theme and title concept harkens back to a time when witches were thought to keep black cats as their “familiars”. Unfortunately this has created a superstition in modern-day society that associates black cats as “unlucky” and thus has had a significant impact on the adoptability of black cats. We hope to raise awareness on the topic, as well as have fun with the obvious playful potential in doing a cat themed show. We also hope artists will rise to the challenge of retaining the dark and moody feel of the October/November time-frame within their pieces, as well.
For this 2-month show, an opening reception will be held 6-9pm at Redux Gallery on October 6th, and the show will run through the end of November, 2017.

We will also have a photobooth by PARTY CAT EVENTS, a Portland based photobooth featuring handmade backdrops and props. you better believe there is gonna be some adorable Halloween and black cat themed props for this one!


We have 37 participants all creating at least one piece for the show, the majority are based in the Pacific NW. the following show links to their online presence as well as their Instagram handle:

Girls of Summer: Art Inspired by Love

We are so excited for this months First Friday Featured Group Show,

Girls of Summer: Art Inspired By Love”

This collective show features the work of three incredible local artists who specialize in mixed media, painting and creative repurposing.

There will be prints available as well as amazing original creations fashioned from wood, metal, paint and canvas.

Don’t miss this inspiring  two and 3-D imagery from Portland’s own female power-trio!

Stop by the shop on opening night to COOL OFF in our fabulous A/C (brrrr!!!) and set your eyes on some amazing art,

schmooze with your friends at the ‘Dux and enjoy a refreshing drink and snack on us!

Stephanie’s words:
As an Artist who carves wood and paints. I’m part anthropologist, part collector.

I don’t set out to recycle or upcycle, as much as I can hold an object and see possibilities. I’m driven to build or create something where there once was nothing.. A common thread is unexpected colors or materials. I am easily bored, if I’m not challenging or pushing myself. Creating a problem that needs solving.
My paintings are loose, layered bold colors and brush strokes
The worn discarded fragments , used for many years, layers of paint telling their story. It’s exciting to see what emerges. Wood carving is a subtractive medium; unforgiving. Each piece of wood is a bit of a mystery, with different grains and ages, each presenting the challenge I crave.
I strive for craftsmanship and try to elevate the forgotten, into an heirloom.
My style is primitive, naive with touches of urban, destruction and decay creeping in.
I seek simplicity, in a world that is too often mass produced and violated

BoneWerx by Alea Bone is mixed-media assemblage art made from found objects and upcycled materials.
What started as an Eco-conscious effort to rescue cast off ephemera from gutters and landfills, has
grown into an exploration of the stories that discarded objects have to tell, specifically: Bottle caps.
The aim is to elevate unexpected materials and blur the lines between the sacred and the profane,
high brow and outsider art. It is my intention to create an edgy and irreverent version of a new American folk art.

Heide Davis is a painter living in Portland, Oregon.

She is originally from Houston, TX where she attended the Art Institute of Houston and Glassell School of Art, MFAH.

Her work as a specialty finisher and muralist has influenced her use of materials and encouraged experimentation in mixed media.

She is currently using Acrylic and oils to create abstract landscapes and figurative work.

TERA STENZEL // First Friday Featured Artist for February – March!
 
First Friday Art Walk

Redux is pleased to present our next First Friday Featured Artist

// TERA STENZEL //

Opening Reception

February 3rd, 2017

6:00PM – 9:30PM

We are excited to showcase the sculptural works by amazing local artist, Tera Stenzel! Tera creates delightfully weird and funky sculptures she calls “Mushroom People”, and they are just that. Each mushroom sculpture has different facial features and characteristics and are named oh so appropriately to match their persona.

// ABOUT THE WORK //

Tera Stenzel’s Mushroom People first appeared in the 2015 Magic & Mystery Show at Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts. Stenzel says, “Mushrooms are an amazing part of our ecosystem; they keep everything in balance. There are no two mushrooms alike,much like humans, so maybe we’re not so different after all. Through humor and whimsy, Stenzel asks the world: “Couldn’t we use a bit more magic in our lives?”

// ABOUT THE ARTIST //

I am a self-taught artist from the Midwest; I moved to the Pacific Northwest almost 10 years ago and I’ve been in love ever since.

Life, nature and humor have always influenced my art. I gravitate more towards the three dimensional. I like creating something that has mass and life to it–a piece you can look at and think up endless storylines for.

I work with a range of mediums, including: acrylic paint, raw wool, yarn… old siding from a house. I like repurposing discarded materials and try to incorporate them as much as possible. I use Sculpey for all sculpted work, but don’t use molds so each piece has its own personality.

Ever since I was little I liked making things. I just want to create and if people find joy in what I do, then gravy.

SEEK, gouache and graphite on paper, 11×14″

Please join us for artist reception of “In Search Of…”, paintings by Portland artist Renee Staeck! Renee’s work is dreamy, etherial and yet rooted in reality – a beautiful juxtaposition we are excited to showcase. Named after Leonard Nimoy’s 1970s television series that examined a spectrum of mysterious phenomena, IN SEARCH OF… illustrates imagined acts of exploration into esoteric mysteries. Each piece portrays a form of participation in occult practices, such as magic, spiritualism, alchemy, and divination. Check out her website to see more of her incredible work!

// ABOUT THE ARTIST //

Renee Staeck is a mixed-media artist and illustrator based in Portland, Oregon. She received a BFA in Fine Art/Drawing from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (Milwaukee, WI) in 2003, and has been working artist ever since.

Renee’s illustrative work varies from art nouveau and Persian miniature-inspired vignettes to abstract landscapes. Drawing most of her influence from the “hidden” beauty, mystery, and humor that underlies everyday life, Renee creates images that often leave the viewer with more questions than answers.

We could not be more stoked for this exhibition, which will be just in time for Halloween! Stop by the shop opening night during the First Friday Art Walk for some seriously spooky art and the meet the artists behind this incredible work!

//ARTIST STATMENT//

Wolftea is a small business working out of our tiny home within the damp woodlands of Washington. We are a husband and wife duo and have been running our little business together for the last 3 years. 

Our work is meant to bring a new life, a new perspective to materials and items that may otherwise become overlooked or forgotten, lost an abandoned. We strive to keep most all of our materials secondhand and salvaged, meaning they all come from a variety of places. 

Bones and animal remains are collected from ethical and secondhand sources from roadkill to nature finds,  from bone dumps to garage sales.  90% of beads and mismatched findings are reclaimed from old broken jewelry,  found objects, barter, thrift shops, garage sales,flea markets and gifts. We also hand-make a portion on our beads and charms from clay, wood, bone and scrap metals. Fabrics and leathers are collected from old found coats, thrift shops,  free boxes, secondhand craft stores, garage sales, trades,gifts, left overs from other crafters and scrap bins. Feathers are obtained from molting birds to small family farms, from found feathers in our coop to secondhand thrift stores.  

The reason behind using salvaged materials is that each bead, each bone or each charm has its own history to contribute both aesthetically and energetically.  As you wear,display or gift these creations to new homes, you are enriching the history already embedded within. 

We hope our work brings inspiration to you<3

// ABOUT THE ARTIST //

Jason Greene is an artist, musician, toy-maker, and tinkerer. Raised in Mississippi, he has been living in Portland for the past 16 years. During that time, he’s had several solo exhibitions and been a part of many group shows. Much of his work has appeared as public art throughout the city of Portland as well as in Los Angeles. Leaning away from his most recent business, Board Games, which recycled skateboards into toys such as slingshots and yoyos, he is putting more energy back into painting and drawing. His artwork often centers around the beauty of seemingly mundane objects and the expressive play of line and form.

//FIRST FRIDAY FEATURED ARTIST- JUNE-JULY 2016//

 

Redux is pleased to present these amazing encaustic mixed media pieces by Portland artist Susan Freedman! Help us celebrate her work at her opening reception during the First Friday Art Walk!

//JUNE 3RD 2016//

//6:00pm – 9:30pm//

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Susan Freedman was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from Portland state university and began work in graphic design, but has always created fine art as well. She has worked in encaustic for over 15 years and has shown her work in galleries and shops throughout Portland.

Encaustic is mix of beeswax, resin and pigment which is heated until it’s in a liquid form. The resin in the mixture raises the melting temperature of the wax, which helps to prevent it from melting in heat once the artwork has cooled.

Encaustic is incredibly versatile; it can be polished to a high gloss, carved, scraped, layered, collaged, dipped, cast, modeled, sculpted, textured, and combined with oil. Because It cools immediately there is no drying time, yet it can always be reworked. it’s like drawing, painting and sculpting all at once.

Check out more of her work on her website, or in the shop!

Under the name BoneWerx, Alea creates mixed-media assemblage art from found objects and upcycled materials. Vintage beer cans, scavenged bottle caps and reclaimed denim, leather and velvet are transformed into unexpected combinations. Inspired by the alternative sub-cultural aesthetics of Day of the Dead, Voodoo, Punk and Beer, she blurs the lines between the sacred and the profane, high brow and outsider art. The result is her own edgy and irreverent version of a new American folk art.

What started as an Eco-conscious effort to rescue cast off materials from gutters and landfills, has grown into an exploration into the stories that found objects have to tell. Besides a plentiful availability, beer cans and bottle caps specifically have emerged as a featured element in Bonewerx.

Alea and her husband moved to PDX in 1995 from Yosemite National Park so she could pursue a degree from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. They chose Portland, in large part because even then, it was an emerging Mecca for beer lovers. Hops grow in the Bone family yard, and they never miss the Oregon Brewer’s Festival. Alea saw ‘Beer Art’ as a huge opportunity that hadn’t been tapped yet and the perfect way to combine her interests.

Usually considered mundane, metal pieces bearing their original maker’s logos, Alea saw a kitschy charm in the cans/caps. It soon became apparent that when elevated into creative compositions, they took on a deeper significance as people started sharing their personal stories with her. Whether you are a part of it or not, beer culture and the role it plays in our individual histories is something we can all identify with and relate to on some level. The memories connected to old beer labels tend to evoke nostalgia for simpler times, youthful rebellion, old bands, fishing buddies and pool games that got out of hand in dive bars. Perhaps it’s the brand your grandpa always had on hand or the beer you shoplifted when underage, just to see if it tasted as bad as everyone said it did, beer, in one way or another is a part of our collective consciuosness.

Objects themselves cannot tell us their own stories. It is our memories, (our secrets) that breathe life into them and give them value. It is the aim of Bonewerx to stir up a few of those stories for you.

We’re so excited to hang her new work, and to share it with you all just in time for V-Day!
