My latest piece. Even though all my work is pretty personal I am trying to be even more honest. To really put how I feel out there. I am feeling a little vulnerable lately and it's been difficult for me to embrace the idea of not being in control. It is humbling. I also am liking the white hair/night sky textured shawl. Since I am back in Oregon I am hoping to do some new work that is a little more Oregon themed. Night sky, trees, pines, deer, clouds, etc. We'll just have to see where I go from here.

Thanks for looking.

Boz Schurr Artist in Residence At Salem Art Association Oct/Nov 2011

Aloha Everyone!

If you happen to be in the Salem Oregon area please swing by Bush Barn Art Center and check out my new digs! I am currently the winter 2011 Salem Art Association Artist in Residence and have my own little space all to myself. (Scroll down for some photos of the space).

I am working on a new collection of drawings and paintings and will have an open house at the end of November. My official open studio hours are Tuesday and Wednesday from 11:30 to 4:30

Hope to see you there!

Here is what the SAA Website has to say about it:

"Boz Schurr, SAA’s October/November Artist-in-Residence, will be on-site and avail­able to the pub­lic in SAA’s Stu­dio Annex on Tues­days and Wednes­days from 11:30 am-4 pm through the end of Novem­ber. Please feel free to drop by dur­ing her open hours and expe­ri­ence the Artist-in-Residence pro­gram in action! Salem Art Association’s (SAA) Artists Ser­vices Pro­gram has revi­tal­ized its Artists-in-Residence Pro­gram. This pro­gram aims to serve pro­fes­sional artists by pro­vid­ing a flex­i­ble space for artis­tic devel­op­ment. There are three Artists in Res­i­dence (AIR) ses­sions per year which last six weeks. All artists includ­ing lit­er­ary, visual, and per­form­ing artists may apply. The goals of the AIR pro­gram are to pro­vide a pos­i­tive and sup­port­ive envi­ron­ment for artists, as well as space for exper­i­men­ta­tion in order to fur­ther the devel­op­ment of an artist’s work. If you are inter­ested in learn­ing more about the Stu­dio Annex Artist in Res­i­dence Pro­gram, please con­tact Kath­leen Dinges at Click HERE to send email or visit our web­site at www.SalemArt.org."
