After the recent passing of our dear friend and artist member, photographer Ron Moore, Ron’s wife, Dee, generously donated a number of items to benefit Art Presence Art Center. Included are a collection of Ron’s photography in a variety of sizes, beautiful photography books, bins, a high director’s chair, and much more. We will begin selling these items in July, though details are not finalized as of this writing. Please visit our website,, for the latest.

Celebrate!—Art Presence Art Center’s Celebrate! exhibit of member artwork continues through July 31. The gallery is full of eye-catching art, so don’t miss this opportunity to see the latest creations by our artist members!

Art Presence Offsite Exhibits

Pioneer Village: “Elaine Witteveen: A Retrospective.” Our final exhibition of paintings by Elaine Witteveen at Pioneer Village continues through August 19.

Jacksonville Library, Naversen Room: “Photos and Sketches and Apps” Nancy Bardos. This exhibit of works by photographer and iPhoneographer Nancy Bardos at the Jacksonville Library continues through August 10. Nancy’s images, digitally enhanced with many layers of iPhone apps for a lovely artistic flair, reveal a unique perspective on the world around us.

Medford Library: “Egyptian Mythology” by Zoe West. Zoe West’s exhibit of artwork, rendered in the stylistic form of ancient Egyptian culture, continues through August. Zoe’s colorful interpretations are the vehicle for a visual commentary on modern life, with a fair dose of humor.

What’s Happening Upstairs?—Upstairs Office Closing Sale! We will be clearing out our upstairs space with a sale of desks, filing cabinets, paper, folders, a solid wood table with 6 chairs, miscellaneous office supplies and musical instruments. This could be a great opportunity for someone setting up an office space to get some of the furnishings and other supplies you need. The sale will take place upstairs at Art Presence on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16, from 8:00am to 3:00pm each day.
