Poof!

By: Ashley Reid

Poof!

NewGallery_Poof1 

Dana Feagin, animal oil painter, worked with her representative Paula Kersch at Art Storm to give a lasting birthday gift to Audrey Moore, a recent attendant at Medford Rehabilitation Center.

Medford Rehabilitation Center is one of the many places where artists represented by Art Storm display art. The latest pieces that are featured in Medford Center are Feagin’s Animal Oil Paintings. Feagin is a lover of animals and shows it by painting the interesting expressions of animals she visits at Sanctuary One, in the Applegate, where she supports and volunteers. Poof , the black cat, was inspired by a cat at Jackson County Animal Shelter. With the help of Art Storm Feagin’s art has been featured in the Medford Center since January for many to enjoy.

Art Storm; now coordinating all the Art 2 Business outside of Ashland and Talent, is a marketing business that represents Southern Oregon artists and their art work. Art Storm promotes artists’ work local and now National as they bring their artist including, Feagin, to the biggest art expo in North America: the New York Art Expo. Going to New York is the next step to help Art Storm achieve the goal in placing local artist in the homes and businesses all over Oregon as well as nationally.

Audrey Moore a recent tenant at Medford Rehab, was shocked to find out that she would be confined to a wheel chair and had to give up her cat while receiving care within the Medford Rehabilitation Center. Luckily Moore she saw a painting on the wall and a new connection was made.

“I was having a hard day,” say’s Moore as she relayed why she contacted Kersch. “I was coming inside the center when I saw it, Poof!” According to Moore the picture was an exact replica of her previously owned cat Ellie who was given away before Moore was admitted. “As soon as I saw the painting I snatched the title card right from the wall and called Art Storm!” Unsure how to pay for the painting; Moore was excited to relive the memories of her cat.

Moore just celebrated her 50th birthday last Wednesday yet with the recent circumstances of being confined to a wheel chair and absence of her family pet, Kersch couldn't think of anything better than to grant a birthday wish.

Standing in Moore’s room Kersch and Feagin wished Moore a belated happy birthday with the giclee print from Harmonic Design and Imaging in Talent, OR. “This is the icing on the cake.” Moore smiled, as she admired the print. Scratching at the head of the giclee as if it were her cat Ellie, Moore described the cat to the T, referring to Poof the whole time. “How did you capture that look? It’s the same one Ellie had when she wanted to be scratched on the head!”

“I love the reactions my paintings get. This one is wonderful.” Feagin tells Moore. Art is more than aesthetics for business, its reaction, much like that of Moore reliving memories of Ellie, compels Art Storm to find places to show these pieces.

“After Audrey called, I felt if that picture could make a difference, especially on her birthday, it was the least I could do, to make it happen” Kersch told Feagin.

Happy Birthday to Audery Moore from Artist Dana Feagin and Paula Kersch of Art Storm.

“Out of Chaos” Metal Art by Rick Anicker

I love this piece of art!

"Out of Chaos" Metal Art by Rick Anicker

"Out of Chaos" metal art by Rick Anicker is priced at $2,633.33 USD. See all of Rick Anicker's metal art...

Artist Notes: This piece was inspired by an up and coming art show under pressure to show something kinda traditional and modern at the same time.... and give the feeling of time travel....and it worked cause everyone had a movie they related it too about the future and all that stuff...plus I really had a good time watching it come out of nowhere....which is why I called it "Out of Chaos" cause that's what is was right off my floor.

For more information on Rick Anicker's art or to purchase, call Paula Kersch at (541)326-6422 or send an email to rickanicker@artstorm.com.
