How-to Fest

From Glass Blowing to DIY Bike Repairs, There’s Something for Everyone at the Redmond Library’s Second Annual How-to Fest


ompulsive crafters, life-long learners and dedicated DIY-ers will want to put June 9 on their calendars: it’s the day that the Redmond Library hosts the second annual How-to Fest. This day-long, hands-on event drew crowds and interest when it launched in 2017, and now it’s back with an all-new slate of things to learn and do. “The How-to Fest is a fun and casual way for people to try their hand at skills and crafts that they’re interested in,” says Josie Hanneman, the community librarian who organizes the annual event. “Everything is free, and just about everything is supplied, so people have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Where else can you learn to learn to build a cold frame, fly a drone and make a necklace all in one place—and in one day?” The How-to Fest is open to people of all ages, and every one of the 25 learning sessions is free with no preregistration required; some sessions will have sign-ups on the day of the event due to limited space and supplies. All of the sessions are led by local experts volunteering their time to share their knowledge and expertise with the community. “At Deschutes Public Library we enrich lives and build community by

being creative, innovative and flexible,” says Hanneman. “The library’s Howto Fest embodies these goals by providing diverse learning opportunities in a fun setting. We have sessions for all ages: crafts, presentations and skills for children, teens and adults. We are also able to draw on our fabulous community of volunteer presenters who just want to share their passions and know-how with a larger audience.” The How-to Fest takes place at the Redmond Library (827 SW Deschutes Avenue in Redmond.) Sessions begin at 10am and continue throughout the day until 4pm. Please visit the library website www.deschuteslibrary.org to see a schedule of classes. “We’re super excited to offer this all-day learning extravaganza for a second time,” says Hanneman. “Lifelong learning is important to me both personally and professionally. If you missed out on 4H when you were a kid, or wish you had a home-economics class as a teen, the How-to Fest can help fill that craving. If you want to keep your mind young by picking up a new skill or hobby, we can help you out, there, too. If you want access to tools and toys you can’t readily get your hands on, join us."

“Pear Collage” a Team Effort by SageBrushers

A Delicious Taste of High Desert Bounty



he views surrounding Bend don’t exactly conjure notions of traditional farmland. Snowy mountains frame open vistas dotted with gnarled juniper trees and sagebrush. By day, the landscape is blanketed under a blazing sun, while cold nights bring relief beneath bright stars. Despite these extremes, agriculture thrives, thanks to the hard work of dedicated farmers and ranchers. Irrigated fields support bountiful crops at Fields Farm and Mahonia Gardens. Farmers’ markets, most notably at NorthWest Crossing, bustle with people buying local produce, dairy, eggs, meat and honey. Visit places like the Great American Egg to learn about the business of raising chickens and Jackson’s Corner for a delicious sample of what eating local tastes like. Author Sara Rishforth goes behind the scenes to present the story of the local farm-to-table movement. Sara Rishforth, her husband and their fuzzy orange cat, Yam, live in Bend. She loves good food and adores her KitchenAid mixer. Sara grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, and worked her way west to Alaska, where she wrote for Alaska’s Best Kitchens magazine before moving to Oregon in 2010. She has previously published two novels and was a winner of the 2013 Central Oregon Writers Guild Literary Harvest, Memoir Category.

Little White Man


ittle White Man – Shoyapo Shoyap has been chosen as winner of the International Beverly Hills Book Awards. Of the thousands of books entered, this book in the West Region was very deserving of the highest award based upon a very compelling story and excellence in writing. “It is my personal hope this world-wide award will raise awareness of the painful history forced upon Native Americans in the name of Manifest Destiny. Five stars.” - Jeffrey Keen, CEO of The Beverly Hills Book Award. This true story is set in Indian country and pits two strong-willed men against each other in an epic David-and-Goliath battle over the dominance of the white man’s religion. A full half-century after Dr. Marcus and Narcissa Whitman were killed—a pivotal event igniting the disastrous Cayuse Indian War—Jimmy Cornelison is assigned as the new missionary. He faces a skeptical congregation made up of the descendants of those who committed the murders. The Indians name this young man fresh out of seminary school, Shoyapo Shoyapo – Little White Man. His authority is swiftly challenged by Chief Peo, a powerful and fearsome leader among his people. The chief denounces the Bible-toting minister and the God he has brought to replace the traditional belief system of Washat. Rick Steber has over 40 titles under his belt and more than a million books in print. Rick has won many awards and is the only Oregon author to have been presented with the prestigious Western Writers of America Spur Award—Best Western Novel. He is a keen observer of the changing American West and he articulates these changes in prose that are boldly descriptive, invigorating and creative. ricksteber.com Oregon’s Only Arts Magazine Since 1995 | June 2018

there are ongoing expenses for which monetary gifts or gifts in kind must be obtained. Anyone who is interested in theater and has the appropriate skill-set, and/or specific talents is invited to contact the Board president Sharon Sackett at 541-5934489 or slms@bendbroadband.com. SSCT is specifically looking for a director of marketing who can give the theater a presence in the community such that when people see the logo, or someone speaks of the STARS, others will say “oh yes, I know about that theater." This marketing person would also have freedom to secure sponsorships and/or program ads from local businesses for each play. Second, a director of productions is needed. This individual has not only a love for theater, but a love for detail and organization in order to assist the director with the many tasks that must be completed for the show to proceed smoothly. Third, SSCT desires to have a director of development who would seek out and write grants which become available throughout the year, administer the annual donor letter and suggest and organize any fundraisers. All three of these positions are SSCT Board positions and besides the responsibilities listed would require a monthly board meeting. SSCT encourages anyone with a special love for theater to give these consideration and contact Sharon Sackett for more information.

FILM & THEATRE Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour across North America includes Bend

Experience Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour, spreading goodwill in over 100 cities across North America this holiday season and presenting world-class performers; Russian folk legends Father Christmas and Snow Maiden, backdrops hand-painted by Russian masters and a Dove of Peace with a 20 foot wingspan — the Great Russian Nutcracker brings the Christmas spirit to life for all ages. “Kids wide-eyed with delight!” says The New York Times. The ballet’s unique Dove of Peace character which was inspired by Bolshoi Principal Artists’ performance in New York City in 1957 and first presented by Moscow Ballet as a single ballerina costumed in two lightly feathered wings. The two person Dove of Peace, with a wingspan of 20 feet, premiered on Moscow Ballet’s 20th Anniversary Tour performed by acro-ballet partners Sergey Chumakov and Elena Petrichenko to critical acclaim. The Dove of Peace choreography created by Chumakov and Petrichenko was inspired by the ground-breaking partner work of Bolshoi Ballet Principal Artists and Moscow Ballet founding director Stanislav Vlasov and partner the Great Lilia Sabitova. Moscow

Ballet producer Akiva Talmi says, “Masha flies on the wings of the Dove of Peace around the world seeking peace and harmony. She goes to France, Italy, Africa — all around the world, and she finds peace and harmony through love.” In Act II Masha and her Nutcracker Prince arrive in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called the Land of Sweets) and celebrate great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic. Talmi clarifies, “My life in working with Russia has been about peace. And the Dove of Peace is Moscow Ballet’s most successful character.” The Moscow Ballet tours annually in North America performing acclaimed ballets the Great Russian Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella and more.

An Instrumental Decade by MELISSA EATON


ifteen years into a career spanning from the San Diego Symphony and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra to recording for the television and film industry, professional violinist Isabelle LaForêt Senger visited Bend. Looking for a change of scenery, she saw an opportunity in Central Oregon to bring what she loves most to a receptive audience.

History In 2008, Senger founded High Desert Chamber Music (HDCM) and tapped her colleagues in the industry for her first season’s roster. The inaugural concert featured her own quartet, Pasadena-based Crown City String Quartet. Members of this group found time between symphony concerts and recording sessions for the Star Wars and Family Guy soundtracks and came to Bend for the concert, held at the Tower Theatre. They are the organization’s resident group and have performed in HDCM’s Concert Series more than a dozen times over the past ten years. Central Oregon has a history of being supportive of creative and performing arts, and High Desert Chamber Music quickly established itself as a reliable source for the highest caliber chamber music. Throughout the last ten years, some notable musicians have performed in their concert series, including International Prokofiev Competition winner pianist Robert Thies, renowned violist and conductor Heiichiro Ohyama, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Frank Almond, Los Angeles Philharmonic Principal Concertmaster Martin Chalifour, violin virtuoso Elizabeth Pitcairn and her 1720 Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius and Grammy-nominated, Avery Fisher prizewinning cellist Peter Wiley. With six concerts and other events offered from September through May, and everything from piano duos to string sextets, there is something to please connoisseurs of just about any style of chamber music. High Desert Chamber Music strives to make exceptional musicians accessible to their audiences with pre-concert talks that allow concertgoers to learn about the artists and the programs they will perform. Educational Outreach Since the beginning, a critical component of High Desert Chamber Music’s mission has been to inspire young local music students and create avenues for them to achieve their highest potential and even go on to music careers of their own. Through their Educational Outreach programs, High Desert Chamber Music provides opportunities for students in our area to witness and learn from some of our country’s finest musicians. Educational programming consists of their chamber music training program, master classes and visits to local schools. You may have seen students from High Desert Chamber Music’s training program, the Spotlight Chamber Players, performing around town at events such as First Friday last month. Musicians in this group are experienced local middle school and high school students who show promise in their technique and development. They audition and 8 June 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com

are selected by HDCM’s executive director, who provides their chamber group instruction at no cost. Starting with their feature performance at the Annual Gala in November, you can see them perform prior to all of HDCM’s concerts, as well as in the community. Each season, High Desert Chamber Music presents a master class with one of their visiting musicians. Guest artists have included violinist/violist Heiichiro Ohyama, violinist Martin Chalifour, and cellist Peter Wiley. For the last two years, this has been offered in partnership with the Oregon branch of the American String Teachers Association (ASTA). Students from all over Oregon audition through ASTA and those selected perform here in Bend for an audience, then receive valuable critique. Master classes are free to attend and open for the public to view so everyone can experience exceptional talent and hear the changes a master’s insight can influence. Perhaps the most lasting impact comes from visits to local schools by guest artists. These performances and Q&A sessions have ranged from classrooms of 25 up to an auditorium of 500 students and teachers. With coordination and the assistance of music teacher Brenda Simmons, these events are able to reach students from all area middle and high schools, giving them the opportunity to see and hear a professional performer as well as get to know details of a musician’s life. In 2016, Frank Almond performed with his storied 301-year-old Stradivarius and he stayed after to take photos with every student who wanted one. A similar event was held last fall with virtuoso Elizabeth Pitcairn and her legendary Red Mendelssohn violin. All of High Desert Chamber Music’s educational outreach efforts are provided at no cost to students, schools or families. Additionally, HDCM works to reach those who can’t get to their concerts by offering performances at retirement communities by either a visiting professional or the Spotlight Chamber Players. Through the years, well over two dozen performances have been offered at several retirement communities at no charge to the residents. Now and the Future As a nonprofit organization, High Desert Chamber Music is fully sustained by individual donations, ticket sales, sponsors, foundation support through grants and an annual Gala and silent auction held late each fall. The 2017-18 season sponsor was Mission Building and Renovation. Other sponsors included German Master Tech, Neil Kelly, Coldwell Banker Morris Real Estate, and the Pine Tavern Restaurant, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, KBND radio and 101.7 Radio. These relationships allow the organization to grow and solidify its standing as a premiere resource of chamber music on par with major metropolitan areas. The music and instruments might range over hundreds of years from very old to very modern, but the performances are always fresh and exciting. This year was the landmark tenth anniversary season for High Desert Chamber Music and special programming brought renewed attention and record ticket sales. The season opened at the Tower Theatre with Elizabeth Pitcairn and the Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius, the same instrument whose mysterious past inspired French filmmaker François Girard to write the Academy Award-winning movie The Red Violin. Also featured were Aviara Trio, Crown City String Quartet, Peter Wiley with pianist Anna Polonsky, and French horn player Laura Brenes with pianist Timothy Durkovic and violinist Isabelle Senger. The season finale debuted the exciting piano duo 4handsLA. Steven Vanhauwaert and Danny Holt shared the bench and one piano in a high-energy performance, bringing a rollicking close to High Desert Chamber Music’s remarkable tenth anniversary season.

Tin Pan Alley Art Collection Expands to the Old Mill District


isit Bend is expanding the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection to the Old Mill District with four new art pieces created by local artists. The Tin Pan Alley Art Collection was introduced in 2012 by Visit Bend as an opportunity for visitors and residents to engage with art in public spaces. The program started in Bend’s Tin Pan Alley with four pieces and has grown to span the downtown corridor with more than 28 pieces, including the parking garage, the Breezeway, the back of the Tower Theatre and other downtown locations.

You Have No Idea How Much You Mean to People

“We believe art should be part of our vibrant and diverse community,” said Kevney Dugan, president and CEO of Visit Bend. “Our natural setting and recreation offerings are what attract visitors to our community and we often hear how the City’s arts and cultural offerings enhance their experience while they are here.” “It has always been our intention to grow the collection and we are thrilled to be expanding to the Old Mill District,” said Valerie Warren, vice president operations and policy. Participating artists include Lisa Lubbesmeyer and Lori Lubbesmeyer; Sarah More; Megan Myers; and a community piece by Basecamp, a local arts studio providing arts’ programming for toddlers and adults. “We are thrilled to see the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection expand to the Old Mill District,” said Noelle Fredland, Old Mill District marketing director. The new pieces in The Old Mill District are: You Have No Idea How Much You Mean to People by Lisa Lubbesmeyer and Lori Lubbesmeyer You Have No Idea How Much You Mean to People was created with acrylic paint, graphite, compressed charcoal, lino block print and metallic media. As a collaborative team and twin sisters, we’re sensitive to how interconnected we are, and therefore, how much we all rely on community. Through the use of social media, we requested people’s words of aspiration, and incorporated them into our depiction of a neighborhood, creating a global community that represents our universal voice of optimism. 12 June 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com

Lisa Lubbesmeyer and Lori Lubbesmeyer. The art of the Lubbesmeyer twins is a collaboration between a printmaker and oil painter, who work in all media but are largely known for their fiber art. The twins develop their imagery by working on alternate layers, without plan or discussion. The Lubbesmeyers are inspired by nature, music, personal stories, patterns of light, juxtapositions of old and new, architecture and travel. Their art encourages one to look outward as far and as wide as possible. The Lubbesmeyers’ work has won numerous awards, and is held in collections around the world. They are proud to reside and work in Bend. Community Mural by Basecamp Studio Base Camp Studio facilitated the painting of this piece by numerous Bend community members. Base Camp Studio is a local nonprofit arts and social service organization. Our mission is to provide a sustainable and supportive space that builds a healthy community by cultivating creativity, self-awareness, personal growth and interpersonal understanding through the arts. We offer unique studio-based programs, and partner with schools and other community groups to provide accessible open-ended art classes and Art Therapy programs focusing on young children and

teens and including people of all ages and abilities. Our community events are designed to cultivate creativity and build community. This painting was created during a First Friday event in Downtown Bend on June 2 last year. Community members were invited to add their circle to the painting. The circle is a symbol of connection, community, inclusion, oneness and life. Painters of all ages added their mark, connecting the community and cultivating the creativity in all of us. The Pack by Megan Myers Megan Marie Myers is a painter, illustrator and native Oregonian. Her painting studio is walking distance from downtown Bend. When she is not painting, she is exploring the Oregon outback. The characters in her work roam through Oregon landscapes, inspired by our region’s mountains, forests, deserts, rock formations and rivers. Myers typically

features children and animals as her central figures. Her intention is to represent the limitless sense of wonder, the yearning to explore and the resilience that each of us carry within. Her paintings explore themes

of companionship, protections, wilderness and the greatest adventure of all, love. The Pack is an offering of gratitude to the first exquisite dusting of snow and an acknowledgement of the elegance in our relationship with nature. Above all, it celebrates our companions, our families, our packs. Riparian by Sarah More Sarah Helen Moregrew up in Portland and Houston, Texas. She holds an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA in textile design from the Rhode Island School of Design.

Riparian was inspired by the vibrant hues of Bend’s sunsets, the meandering calm of the Deschutes River and the energy that emits from the shops and restaurants that line the river along the Old Mill. This piece embodies the natural and manmade synergy between one of the city’s most dynamic riparian areas.

Lillian Pitt, Transcendent Artist of Warm Springs



he second and third floors of the Portland Art Museum offer the finest collection of Native American Art in Oregon and represent one of the best collections in the United States. These works span both the North American continent and its history, from ancient times to current, which are reflected by some of the contemporary artists that have been included. The works of Lillian Pitt are displayed prominently at the entrance to the expansive collection. The Museum at Warm Springs has held exhibitions honoring Lillian’s work and has her pieces displayed at the entrance to the Collections Room. The High Desert Museum is still another Oregon museum that houses her work. Outside of Oregon, Lillian’s art graces the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. and The Burke Museum in Seattle, which holds yet another nationally famously collection. The list of awards, shows and exhibitions for Lillian’s career is over three pages long. Books have been written that include her works; books have been written about her works. Her place as the preeminent living Native American artist of Oregon is unquestionable. These distinctions however, are somewhat limiting because they form a certain kind of perimeter around Lillian, creating a perception that her Native American roots and those artistic traditions are what enabled her to be so successful. While she does not shy away from those connections, a single opportunity to see Lillian’s pieces at a show, one chance to meet her, quickly discards the narrower perspective a person might hold regarding her ability as an artist.

Lillian has come to understand, incorporate, and master many of the concepts and techniques of contemporary Western art. Her range of mediums—glass, clay, metal, jewelry, printmaking, multi-media—establishes an exceptional breadth of skills for any artist. In short, Lillian’s dynamic artistic abilities demonstrate that she would have been a highly successful artist had she chosen Western World subjects and motifs. Her Honorary Patagonia, Argentina Doctorate from the University of Portland nine years ago exemplifies this high regard for her and her abilities. Her indigenous heritage and the birthright traditions that come along with it deeply formed Lillian, both as a child and young adult. Throughout her early and later career, she remained true to this most essential Artwork by Lillian Pitt foundation. The result of Lillian’s commitment to her identity has helped to raise the public’s awareness about the First Peoples of this region, while accomplishing it in a beautiful and contemporary manner. As a young artist in the 1960’s and 70’s, Native American Art had its place, but that place wasn’t nearly as popular or lucrative as it can be today. At the time, the art world was embracing a number of modernist movements that fairly excluded tradition. Art was more trendy then; elegant and enduring could be brushed aside as being passe. Lillian did not waiver; she stayed with what had shaped her even though transforming herself more simply into an artist could have allowed her to capitalize on her ability and what was fashionable to create in the moment. In short, she chose the most honorable yet more rigorous path. Now in her 70’s, she still walks it. Lillian will be holding a show in Sisters June 22-24 with an Artist Reception on Friday, June 1 from 4-7pm. Her new works will be on display at Raven Makes Gallery.

Art at the Oxford


he Oxford Hotel presents Barbara Slater’s realistic, acrylic paintings of colorful spring and summer flowers continuing through June 29. Slater will attend the First Friday public champagne reception on June 1 from 5:30-7:30pm. Barbara Slater presents colorful images of seasonal blooms such as iris, tulips and magnolia. The artist notes, “I paint what I love, striving to paint passionate paintings…not just workable paintings. I have a heart-felt connection to my work.” Her current exhibit at the Oxford Hotel underscores her appreciation of nature’s exotic and beautiful floral blooms.

The Offspring – Winter Rose


June 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com

Slater, an accomplished artist in oil, also reveals her ability in the acrylic medium. The delicacy of the flower’s ruffled edges, the myriad subtle hues in a single bloom—the soft colors of

the opening bloom in contract to the vibrancy of the mature bloom and the darker shift in receding, curling petals all reveal her observant and skilled eye. Slater, creating oil paintings for over forty years, is recognized for her ability to depict “the personality” of her subject. Whether painting animals or portraits of friends, she ably depicts not only the subject but the subtlety of emotion. Similarly, the artist imbues her floral images with color, form and exquisite detail sufficient to enable viewers to emote and experience the painted image as a living bloom. Billye Turner, art consultant, coordinates the Oxford Hotel exhibition schedule. For additional information please contact her at 503-780-2828 or billyeturner@bendnet.com.

Artist Shelly Wierzba Learning Oregon


end artist Shelly Wierzba prefers her painting time to be outdoors. The challenges of plein air painting are never ending, but worth every minute. Almost all her paintings are started outside, even if they get finished in the studio. Some are used to create larger paintings, where she can better stress an idea, such as the way the light feels on snow. Not feeling obligated to paint exactly what she sees is where the creative spirit enters. She asks, “what do I want to express in this painting; what mood or feeling?” It has been nine years since she switched her medium to oils. She feels as Richard Schmid, master painter does, that “Oil is one of the most beautiful and powerful mediums of creative expression ever conceived and brought to life.” Wierzba stated that through painting all over the state, especially around Central Oregon, she has learned much about it’s landscapes, structures and weather. “I’m outside to have fun and enjoy the experience. Each trip out to paint is a little adventure. Last fall, while painting by the Deschutes River, a chipmunk decided to act as my mentee, or maybe mentor. He first examined all my supplies, then simply sat on a rock and watched me for three hours! After awhile I started consulting him. “What do you think about that color; or about that rock on the edge?” I think his criticisms were good, since the painting found an admirer who now has it on her wall.”

Shelly is a member of the Plein Air Painters of Oregon, and a past juried member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Her work is in many corporate and private collections across the United States and can be seen at the Red Chair Gallery in Bend.

Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing


rt in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing, invites the public to First Friday, June 1 from 5-8pm, featuring noted Bend artists Michael P. Kelly and Randal Fyfe Leigh. The artists will attend the June 1 opening. Michael P. Kelly (Mike Kelly) exhibits abstract art in acrylic as well as realistic, detailed ink drawings of Central Oregon flora. This diversity both of medium and imagery reveals his extensive artistic ability and life experience. Kelly, Massachusetts’ native, studied at the Art Institute of Boston, learning formal skills in illustration and drawing; he then, in 1973, completed a BFA in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. The artist notes his good fortune in instruction by noted painters Philip Burnham Hicken in Boston as well as David Hannah, Julius Hatofsky and Sam Tchakalian in San Francisco. These studies informed his skill in both realism and abstraction. With a BFA, he returned to Boston to paint until his move to New Mexico, living and teaching in native Navajo areas. These vast spaces, punctuated by odd geologic formations of mesas and buttes, and the intense sunsets of gold, red, lavender and azure blue, further affected his continued painting. A subsequent move to Oregon and work as a cartographer on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs reservation also influenced his painting. He comments that a cartographic grid is often present

Sky Beings by Randal Leigh

as exemplified in his large acrylic, New Mexico Seen. Private and corporate collections feature Kelly’s art which also appeared in Boston, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Bend and Madras exhibitions. His creed underscores his success, “Every day, I paint something….I love paint and painting is like breathing to me....no breath, no life.” Randal Fyfe Leigh (Randal Leigh), a Bend artist versatile in many mediums, devotes his considerable talent to his own art and commissioned works. In the current suite on display, he acknowledges the “ancient art of distant millennia” and his reverence for those artists whose creations date back to the dawn of artistic expression. Leigh’s Petroglyph Homage pays tribute to the primordial design of bulls, shamans, early Native

American imagery and others of unknown origin. Carving on delicate, three dimensional, sealed acrylic surfaces, he painstakingly creates subtle yet striking and colorful images, reminiscent of and offering respect to the original artists. Formerly of Los Angeles, California one of Leigh’s many achievements includes two Emmy Awards for Artistic Contribution to KCET, received during KCET’s time as Southern California’s flagship PBS member station. In his LA career from the late 1960’s to 2015, he envisioned and created numerous backdrops, paintings, sets and props, for live audiences and film productions including Star Trek, Seabiscuit, Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, Les Miserables, The Carol Burnett and The Sony and Cher Shows, to name a few. He also served as senior artist at NBC/Universal with the Jay Leno, Tonight Show. The artist’s career also includes working at Disney Imagineering, sculpting and painting 3D sets for the Disneyland rides Pirates of the Caribbean and Temple of Doom, for Disneyland Anaheim and Orlando, Disneyland Resort Paris and Tokyo Disney Resort. Throughout this period, he also successfully created and sold his own artwork internationally to private and corporate collectors.

Suzi Bradley Sheward


uzi Bradley Sheward, an artist and former resident of the Bend area, is embracing new but very old art: Encaustics Encaustic, meaning to "burn in" was first used by the Greeks in the Fifth Century BCE. Encaustic paint is a mixture of beeswax and damar Encaustic Image crystals melted together to form a paint and must be kept molten as its applied to a surface. Damar crystals come from the sap of a tree and is also made into varnish. The wax is fused to a surface by a torch or other heating method and each successive layer must be fused as well to become a part of the painting in progress. It's extremely durable as wax is impervious to water so the painting won't deteriorate, yellow or darken. The damar and wax together form a surface that requires no protection, the surface is hard and polishes into a high gloss. "My formal schooling was in commercial art rather than fine. I've sometimes wished I could paint like the impressionists today but that really wasn't what I really felt...in the end I'd find myself licking the point on a small brush focusing on detail yet again. Through the years I painted rodeo and automotive posters, paintings, two of which were featured on the cover of Arts and Entertainment. For a few years I was fabricating western decor from leather and Pendleton


fabric which I still do occasionally but was always looking for some other freer, more exciting venue for artistic expression" says Sheward. "In Santa Fe, New Mexico, I walked into an encaustic gallery and instantly knew this unusual art form was for me. I was taken by its visual effect because the layers of wax are built up giving the painting different depths that, along with textural and color possibilities, aren't possible with other art forms. Wax can be modeled, sculpted, combined with collage materials and still retain its beautiful and durable properties. After the Santa Fe experience I scoured the internet watching hours and hours of You Tube videos to see other examples and learn how other people were creating art with wax. The videos were the only way I could learn as there aren't many workshops or artists close with whom to study. Working with hot wax does have its up and downs with a huge learning curve. I found that it's not good to visualize a final effect because it's never going to end up that way. Holding heat too close or too long in one area will cause the wax to blossom into something surprisingly different than planned. While torching wax isn't precise it is also a little dangerous. I've accidently burned papers, pencils, rags and singed my hair on more than one occasion while not paying attention. A handy fire extinguisher is an absolute necessity in the studio. At the present time I am in the process of sending a small body of work to an encaustic art exhibit and show in Santa Fe.

Sage Custom Framing & Gallery 834 NW Brooks Street • 541-382-5884 • sageframing-gallery.com During the month of June, local artist Jean Harkin is displaying a selection of her work. Showing are both recent pieces and items from an ongoing series. All are original paintings and prints done on paper or canvas. Many incorporate pastel, drawing or collage, using many different techniques to suit her subject. Color, movement and shape are important factors. “The paintings often involve layering transparent colors, then opaque colors, continuing back and forth until I am happy with the look and feel.” Harkin’s love of nature is evident in one ongoing series she has worked on for some time, the “Tree Series”, inspired by the aftermath of a forest fire. In this series, purples and blacks are key to expressing the fury of raging fire. As time passes, the ageing snags become multiple tones of grey velvet with some charred black crumbling browns. Of Mice and Owls by Jean Harkin “I gain satisfaction from an artistic response to the subjects that catch and hold my attention rather than painting replications of them. When a viewer stops to really gaze into one of my pieces as if entering it in their own way, I feel successful.” Tumalo Art Company Old Mill District • 541-385-9144 • tumaloartco.com For her June show, opening June 1 from 4-8pm at Tumalo Art Co., Folding Visions: Past/Present/Future, Dorothy Freudenberg has curated old and new pieces presented with a clean modernist feel.

Throughout her art career, Dorothy has experimented with various kinds of media to print her stunning digitally composed images. For this show she is printing on metal. Metal prints have intense color as light reflects back to the viewer, giving great saturation and dimensionality to the image. Combined with long archival life and the ability to dispense with glass, these pieces seem to glow from within. At the same time she is presenting some very new pieces in a category called, appropriately, Phoneography. Using her phone as a source of inspiration, she is able to create in a very fluid, spontaneous manner, Elevator to the Sky by Dorothy Freudenberg producing exciting new ideas and images in a smaller format, and bringing new concepts to the blended medium of photography and digital painting. Tumalo Art Co. is an artist-run gallery in the heart of the Old Mill District, open every day. The Wine Shop 55 NW Minnesota Ave The Wine Shop’s June exhibit features the work of SageBrushers artists, Sue Lefferts and Anne Perce. Sue describes herself as a new artist who fairly recently decided that it is time to re-explore and nurture her creative side. After joining SageBrushers she began taking acrylic painting classes. She draws inspiration from the natural world and is especially fond of the works of early western landscape artists such as Maynard Dixon as well as many of the Impressionists. Anne says she must have been born with a crayon in one hand and a brush in the other. As a young child she was enrolled in art classes and through the years had many different avenues to pursue artistic endeavors. Now she tends toward a more impressionistic style of painting because she loves the simplicity of it, how light affects the subject and the Sea View by Sue Lefferts challenge of combining beautiful colors.

Our monthly Party with the Artists is on Saturday June 9 from 4-6pm. Join us for food, wine, beer and wonderful new art. We will have art demonstrations as well. Featured artist, Becky Henson creates unique and locally inspired stained glass. Gallery artist Karla Proud offered some raw Oregon Sunstones (our State gemstone). Becky combined this use of these natural gemstones with rusts and orange shaded glass created a one of a kind masterpiece! “Recently I purchased some multi-faceted glass gems and used them to create my Kaleidoscope Sunflower. The small pieces of gold, blue and green glass were recovered from an old damaged lamp. I like thinking outside the normal box of stained glass,” says Becky. Featured artist Mary Wonser is getting back to her original weaving roots with wall hangings, rugs and runners. Mary is using wool rug yarn from Arroyo Seco, New Mexico which she hand dyes. She likes to embellish some of the hangings with old coins, beads, feathers or other found objects. The embellishments or textured yarns are often the first impetus in planning a weaving. “I’ve created a black wall weaving with pottery embellishments as a collaboration with Dori Kite, a ceramic artist in the gallery. “

Featured artist, Joanne Simmons Walch says, “My art comes from an appreciation of the beauty in historic designs, and a love of creative embroidery that I learned at a young age. I locate and research original stencil designs that were used a century ago to grace the walls of family homes. My stencil designs date from the 1890’s to the early 1920’s.” Joanne recreates these stencils and uses them with selected high-quality fabrics (linen, silk, suiting fabrics) and historic palettes to make textiles that can be proudly used and displayed in today’s homes. The gallery has a wonderful selection of pillows, tea towels and framed stencils with embroidery detail. Joanne is also offering classes this summer in the art of fabric stenciling. Featured artist Deni Porter creates watercolor paintings that are alive with color and emotion. Painting subjects range from animals to the streets of Bend and the beautiful outdoor scenes of Sunriver. Deni is frequently found at work painting in the gallery, explaining techniques and methods to anyone interested. Deni also is happy to provide beautiful realistic portraits of pets or children. Pricing is very reasonable, and the result is a family heirloom to cherish for years to come. All Deni needs is a few photos to work from. Sometimes an original painting of a beloved pet can induce a smile every time that you catch a glimpse.

SISTERS Sisters Arts Association


our years ago, when a few artists and art lovers got together to learn about one another’s lives and art, Sisters Arts Association (SAA) was born. Discovering they shared a belief that the arts are an important part of a healthy community and an essential component to enrich its culture, they became “Committed to Enhancing the Arts, Culture and Community Together.”

Since then, independent artists, local galleries, supporting businesses and patrons launched a Fourth Friday Art Stroll that now draws hundreds of visitors to Sisters every month, and someone always wins a $100 gift certificate. It’s a wonderful evening for the whole town.

4th Friday Arr Sttoll

On the last Saturday in July, SAA will sponsor its second annual Artist Studio Tour, drawing art lovers from all over the Northwest. They will feature art at the Sisters Folk Festival in September and the Annual Harvest Faire in October. Every Fourth Sunday in June through August, galleries will be serving art, small brunch bites and great conversation. SAA helped select art for the first Roundabout on Highway 20 in Sisters, and successfully negotiated creation of the Hood Avenue Arts District. SAA works with every other community organization in Sisters to promote all forms of art and artists, and it looks like there is much more to come. sistersarts.org

aturday, June 9 at 7:30pm the Tower Theatre Foundation welcomes back Survivorman – Les Stroud. Les’s new album drops June 1, so this performance will be a release party featuring a mix of survival stories, folk roots-rock and videography to create an inspiring concert experience. Les Stroud is best known as the Canadian Screen Award-winning producer, creator and star of the hit Discovery Channel series Survivorman. Musically, Stroud is revered for his harmonica playing, and fuses modern technology with a powerful set of lungs (not withstanding having them punctured in a car crash in Mongolia) to create his own original style. More than that, he told GO! Magazine, “I intend to create a whole new genre—earth music—to celebrate and protect the earth. That gives people a touchstone to say, ‘OK, I want to come see what this guy’s doing,’ and when they get there: Holy s---, he blows a mean harmonica and he sings well!” His impressive guitar and “harp” playing has allowed him to share the stage with Slash, Journey, Steven Stills, Blues Traveler, Montgomery Gentry,The Roots, and Alice Cooper dubbed him the Hendrix of the Harmonica. But for Les it has always been about crossing the entertainment world with a mission that means something; for example, Art in Nature! Join Les Stroud for exclusive Wanderlust Tours to Paulina Lake and a Central Oregon cave — package includes transportation, guides, gear, private audience with Les, and tickets to his Tower concert.

ianists Janet Smith and Darlene Cusick will present a concert of two-piano music on Saturday, June 9 at 3pm in Wille Hall at Central Oregon Community College (COCC). The concert will feature music by Mozart, Gershwin, Schumann and Milhaud. French horn player L. William Kuyper, retired assistant principal of the New York Philharmonic will assist in the Schumann. Also performing will be two well-known Bend cellists, Deborah Johnston and Travis Allen. There is no charge for admission. Janet Smith & Darlene Cusick, courtesy of COCC Janet Smith, a resident of Bend, is a highly regarded performer and teacher. She holds piano performance degrees from Juilliard and Oberlin Conservatory and has played many solo and chamber music recitals, concerti with orchestra, and appeared on television and radio. She served on the faculties of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, West Valley College and DeAnza College. Her private studio in the San Francisco Bay Area produced prize-winning students, some of whom have become professional musicians. Darlene Cusick is from Portland, where she is an accomplished pianist, organist and teacher. She holds piano performance degrees from Lewis & Clark and the University of Washington. A frequent solo and collaborative artist, she has played concerti with the Oregon Symphony, Portland Youth Philharmonic and Vancouver Symphony in Washington. In 2011 she was a semi-finalist in the Van Cliburn Amateur Competition. She taught at Lewis & Clark, and her private studio has developed many students who are now professional musicians. L. William Kuyper joined the New York Philharmonic in 1969 at the invitation of the legendary George Szell. He served as Assistant Principal for 38 years, serving under conductors Leonard Bernstein, Zubin Mehta and others. His long career has included performances at the White House, Alice Tully Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philips Gallery, the National Cathedral, the National Gallery of Art and many more.

He holds a Ph.D. in musicology and two cello performance degrees. He teaches at Central Oregon Community College and in his Bend studio. The June 9 program includes Mozart’s Sonata in D major, K. 448, one of his finest and most entertaining works. The two piano parts are made completely equal, with masterfully crafted dialogue between them. Its delicacy and refinement as it spins out many delightful themes make it one of the most profound and mature of all Mozart’s compositions. Fantasy on George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess was arranged by Percy Grainger. It is a medley of songs from the famous opera, including such favorites as It Ain’t Necessarily So and the beautiful Summertime. Andante and Variations, Op. 46 by Schumann features all five musicians in a chamber work exhibiting the imagination and originality of this great romantic composer. “Scaramouche” by Darius Milhaud finishes the program with a suite of three movements. The first is lively and witty, the second is delicate with a French flavor, and the last is a showpiece with delightfully infectious Brazilian rhythms.

Make no mistake—our staging and choreography enhance the story in ways you might not expect. With the addition of an 18 person vocal choir and 10 piece orchestra on stage, audiences will be spellbound, all the while enjoying the intimacy of the Tower.” Evita stars: Natalie Manz as Eva Perón, Simeon Purkey as Che and Ryan Klontz as Juan Perón.

Les Schwab Amphitheater Summer Concert Series 2018 is Largest to Date


n early April, the Les Schwab Amphitheater announced the addition of two more live music acts to its summer lineup, making 2018 the largest season ever for the concert series with 16 total shows. Not only are there more acts coming than ever before, but the number of musical genres varies greatly with new acts such as Portugal. The Man, Primus and Jethro Tull hitting the stage as well as returning loyal Bend fans, Michael Franti, Dave Matthews Band and Pixies. This season will bring a broad spectrum of music to reach fans far and wide. While there are many behind-the-scenes goings on when it comes to bringing a concert to a specific venue, one thing is for sure: artists love coming to Bend. Brent Joseph, assistant venue manager for the Les Schwab Amphitheater and Old Mill District, said, “We are very excited about this year’s lineup! I attribute the growth to the fact that artists are learning about the wonder that is Bend, like to perform here and want to return to our paradise. They are also spreading the word to other folks in the industry on the intimate concert setting as well as the amazing activities and landscapes that Bend has to offer.” Brent is right if quotes from the artists who have performed here are any indication. In a recent interview with Dean Ween on DangerousMinds.net, he talked about a show in Bend, saying, “We were in Bend, Oregon—believe it or not, that’s a huge market for us. It’s right on a river, beautiful, an outdoor amphitheater. It holds an endless amount of people, it’s just one of those places you go, it’s just limitless. We’ve been going there for years.” The show he references took place at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Oregon on July 1, 2017. Michael Franti and Spearhead comes nearly every summer to Bend, and their June 19, 2018 concert date was just announced. As quoted in The Source Weekly, Franti said of Bend residents, “It’s just an incredibly great community of people who are, what I call, soulrockers. People who live from their heart,


June 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com

who have compassion for all and who have a tenacious enthusiasm for music, and for people, and for the planet. I really see that in the Bend community.” While more concerts may still be on the way, here’s the summer lineup so far. A complete, updated list can be found at www.bendconcerts.com. June 8 – Jethro Tull June 9 – Slightly Stoopid June 19 – Michael Franti & Spearhead June 23 - PRIMUS and MASTODON July 6 - Steve Martin and Martin Short July 24 – Jackson Browne July 25 – Sheryl Crow July 26 – The Decemberists August 4 – Willie Nelson & Allison Kraus August 5 - Pixies August 9 – Amos Lee August 21 - Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton August 25 – Brandi Carlile August 28 – Dave Matthews Band August 31 – Portugal. The Man This lineup means more than just great live music in what is arguably the most beautiful outdoor venue in the region, it also brings a positive impact to the community as a whole. A 2015 research study found that the events and concerts in the Les Schwab Amphitheater impact the Central Oregon economy by bringing a huge amount of revenue to the region—estimated at around $20 million (and that was three years ago!). Concert-related spending in the study included money spent on things like dining, shopping, lodging, recreation, groceries, gas stations and a variety of other services. So get ready Central Oregon! There’s a summer of fantastic music on the way, right on the banks of our Deschutes River.

Ken Marunowski's Stunning Mixed Media Artwork Selected as 41st Anniversary Poster for Sunriver Music Festival








rtist Kenneth Marunowski’s innovative mixed media (acrylic, charcoal, crayon, oil stick, pastel) masterpiece “Wonderful Town: Sunriver Suite” has been selected as the Sunriver Music Festival’s poster for 2018. The Festival’s theme this year is dedicated to celebrating the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein. Ken’s work captures the dynamic energy of this preeminent composer and conductor. As a protégé of Bernstein, the Festival’s Artistic Director George Hanson is excited to share his love of Bernstein during this year’s season, August 10-22, in Bend and Sunriver. Ken Marunowski is an artist and educator. He taught professional writing at the University of Minnesota Duluth before devoting himself fully to his artistic practice. Primarily an oil painter, Ken executes much of his art “en plein air” (in open air), the results of which he often uses in the studio as inspiration for additional works. Ken was awarded a 2016 Summer Artist Fellowship at the Marchutz School of Fine Art in Aix-en-Provence, France. He participated in the artistic life of the school and delivered a lecture on the intersection of painting and writing in the life of the artist to the university community. Ken currently resides in Bend, Oregon. Each year, the Festival selects a Central Oregon artist to create the artwork for the annual festival poster. Local artists were invited to submit a piece for consideration and a committee of art enthusiasts selected Ken’s artwork.

This individual has not only a love for theater, but a love for detail and organization in order to assist the director with the many tasks that must be completed for the show to proceed smoothly. Third, SSCT desires to have a director of development who would seek out and write grants which become available throughout the year, administer the annual donor letter and suggest and organize any fundraisers. All three of these positions are SSCT Board positions and besides the responsibilities listed would require a monthly board meeting. SSCT encourages anyone with a special love for theater to give these consideration and contact Sharon Sackett for more information.
