Josephy Center celebrates veterans’ art

JOSEPH — “Art Out of War” is a July exhibit of ceramic art by veterans from LH Project Residency Program. The opening reception will be at the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture on July 10. Doors open at 6:30, with a 7 p.m. reception planned. The exhibit is in conjunction with the LH Residency Program for the month of July.

The Josephy Center will present two “Live and Up Front: Artist Lecture Series,” the first on July 14 and the second on July 21, both at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The Josephy will also host a tour of the LH Project’s ceramic studio campus on July 17. The tour meets at the Josephy Center at 5:30 p.m. Events are free with donations welcome.

This exhibit features the work of six artists from across the country — Daniel Donovan, Jesse Albrecht, Ash Kyrie, Giuseppe Pellicano, Jill Allen and Al Tennant. Each artist draws upon their experience as veterans to create their work.

During the month of July, each artist will create a variety of works, as part of their LH residency. This new work along with the exhibit at the Josephy Center will become a traveling exhibit.

The LH Project offers an intimate, private setting for nationally and internationally recognized artists to nourish their creative process surrounded by the beauty of the Wallowa Mountains. This residency, dedicated to artists who are also veterans, is an opportunity unavailable anywhere else in the country. The work created here arises from deep exploration facilitated by the serene environment, the diverse facility, and the sense of community.
