The Southern Oregon Guild invites you to join us on Saturday September 30 from 5-7pm to celebrate our new fall exhibit at ART IN THE VINEYARD, our Guild Gallery at Bridgeview Winery’s tasting room in Cave Junction! For our third show we are displaying a duo-collection of sculptural works from local artists Charles Churchill and Miri Admoni. Opening reception is FREE with delicious appetizers provided and a variety of Bridgeview wine available for purchase. This exhibit will be on display until November 27, 2023.
Charles Churchill has been a sculptor for over 4 decades! His passion for art evolved from a love of jazz, leading him to beat poetry, abstract art, and even motorcycles. In 1989, he graduated art school at Sonoma State University and began showing and selling his art. Abstract assemblage and light sculptures make up a large portion of his body of work, made almost entirely of disregarded industrial scraps. By using found wood, glass, and metals, he celebrates and honors the materials made from our planet’s resources. Charles has taught art and curated exhibitions at Sonoma State University and the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. He has also shared the art of assemblage to children of all ages in various schools and Head Start programs in Northern California. To see more of his work, visit www.charleschurchillsculptor.com.
Miri Admoni is a mixed media, glass, and jewelry artist, who shares her life between Israel and the USA. Arts and crafts have always been a part of Miri’s life since childhood. Her formal education was in graphic design, where she worked as a freelance designer and producer of unique recycled paper products and specialized in packaging. During 2004-2010 Miri studied various glass techniques, and from 2011-2012 she studied metalsmith in a private studio and started to create jewelry with glass. Nature has always been the greatest source of inspiration. Initially, Miri was inspired by her surroundings in Israel, the rich and diverse nature scenes between the Mediterranean Sea and the Judean desert. That led to the creation of the Alchemy glass series and the collaboration with Bedouin women artists. Now Miri lives and works from her home studio in Selma OR, where she continues to explore her relationship with nature.
