Please join us to Celebrate the Dream of a museum for Warm Springs and the Visionaries who made The Museum At Warm Springs a reality.
Over the past twenty years the Warm Springs Community, Tribal Council, Tribal enterprises, private and corporate foundations, state and federal agencies, Museum Staff, friends and visitors have provided financial support, in-kind assistance, encouragement, inspiration and talent to help The Museum grow and flourish. As part of our
we honor Apolonia Susana Santos (1954-2006), with the exhibition opening on June 27th.
Indigenous Elements: The Life and Art of Apolonia Susana Santos It was said of Apolonia: “Through sharing her skills and talents with others, especially the youth, she has assisted directly in the transformation of many lives through artistic expression, cultural teaching and by providing valuable information she has learned along her path about caring for our Mother Earth and all she provides.”

Coming to the
Entertaining & Inspiring Words of Wisdom Cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or be disappointed in us. Cynics always say no ... for as long as you have the strength to, say yes. ~ Stephen Colbert, Knox College, 2006 Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never — in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. ~ Winston Churchill, Harrow School, 1941
ver the past week I’ve heard several commencement addresses from the boring and mundane to the inspiring and insightful. Each speaker tried to entertain us while attempting to give the graduates a sense of themselves, sometimes perhaps a little too boastful, but perceptibly wanting to set a good example. My favorite to-date, as there are more graduations yet to view in June, was senior class representative, Gerard Paolo Cabarse, graduating with a BS in Psychology from Dominican University of California. Gerard was clever, funny, energetic and tendered perhaps one of the best pieces of advice about the future as his fellow graduates go forth in their lives. His quote will be remembered: A stranger is someone you haven’t met yet. Let’s go make some friends. The keynote address came from Dana King, an artist and former broadcast journalist from Los Angeles who received an honorary degree from Dominican that day. Dana it seemed, at least from her description, had led a charmed life and has crossed many thresholds of achievement. Her advice was full of antidotes about stuff she’s learned along the way. She offered three tips: share the credit when you’re successful with those who helped you get there, say I’m sorry as quickly as possible with sincerity and be true to your self (in other words find what you really like and do it). Steve Jobs, who dropped out of Reed College after only six months and likely didn’t say I’m sorry often nor share the credit for his success, put forth these guidelines at a commencement address in 2005 at Stanford knowing then that his life would be cut short from his illness: You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, what-

ever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Heeding Steve Job’s advice certainly could manifest a definitive future. At the end of the Dominican graduation, Gerard, the senior class speaker, wouldn’t let us just go forth without a little jovial performance and uplifting concert. He led the entire audience in a fast rendition of I Will Survive. The audience was elated from the liveliness of the song while the graduates were saying let’s get this party started! It’s exciting and exhilarating to see all of these young graduates get ready to change the world, achieve their goals, knock on doors and pick themselves up again when at first they don’t succeed. At a commencement address at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia last year author Neil Gaiman said: and now go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art. Sweet!

pring this year in Central Oregon may well be remembered as the season of public art. Sculptures and murals have been appearing at a terrific pace around Bend and Redmond, not only beautifying our roundabouts and walls, but engaging visitors and residents to interact in new ways with our public spaces. Two new roundabout sculptures have been installed in the last two months, the High Desert Spiral on Mt. Washington Drive and Simpson Avenue, and Milky Way on Mt. Washington Drive and Shevlin Park Road. The sculptures add to the impressive collection of art throughout the City, and were made possible by the nonprofit Art in Public Places. Those interested in visiting the many pieces can take the Roundabout Art Route Tour; a guide is available at Visit Bend on the corner of Lava Road and Oregon Avenue in downtown Bend. Redmond’s new Peak Finder sculpture can be found at the Airport on the center island in front of the terminal. A handcrafted representation of our Cascade mountains, the new piece will certainly give travelers pause as they learn a little more about our iconic landscape. Taking in one of the many concerts at the Les Schwab Amphitheater this summer? It will be hard to miss the colorful work of artist Erin Sayer on both the back and front of the stage (see story on page 18). The Old Mill District realized the back of the stage was “a giant canvas begging for art.” The newest public art program is due to bring local artwork to the walls and alleys all around Bend. The Tin Pan Alley Art Collection, spearheaded by Visit Bend, started with four artists installing work in four locations downtown. The project aims to grow a collection that spans the city and gives local artists and arts organizations more opportunities to display their work (see story on pg. 13). With every new piece of art that appears in the public spaces around Central Oregon, our community becomes more culturally diverse and adds to our collective art collection.

an talking actually solve all the world’s problems? Probably not, but local artist Aaron Lish thinks it’s at least a place to start. Lish recently organized a think-tank experience titled Play and Idle Creativity where a small group of ordinary folks went camping to discuss the next big threats to humanity and what, if anything, we can do about them. What made this experience especially unique, besides spending three days in thought provoking, critical dialogue, was that it took place in Derrick Cave in South-Central Oregon. Derrick Cave is a former civil defense nuclear fallout shelter that was stocked with supplies for over 1,200 people to survive in the event of a nuclear attack on the West Coast of the United States during the Cold War. However, by the mid-1970s the reality of long-term life underground began to be questioned and eventually the cave and others across the nation were abandoned. Lish said, “I figured having the biggest threat to humanity of the last century as a constant background reminder would create a unique context for discussing what might be the next big threats…what’s over the horizon that we haven’t thought of yet.” To get the dialogue start- Derrick Cave in South-Central Oregon ed, each participant had been asked to give a brief presentation that fit the topic of Survival Skills for the 21st Century. Titles included Bioregionalism as an Alternative to Over-Reliance on Infrastructure, Technology: Is it a Double-Edged Sword?, Living with More Risk or Less? and Dying with Dignity as a resource conservation strategy. After each topic was presented, participants then spent time in what Lish refers as “generative dialogue.” By embracing the goal of generating new ideas or new ways of thinking, everyone had agreed to set aside the common approach to conversation in American culture – to try to convince others that you are right – and instead to maintain an open mind and an openness to sharing. The result is a “conversational drift” as artists Helen and Newton Harrison, who have long used conversation as part of their art process, refer to the natural evolution of conversation. “Where you end up is often far from where you began, and how you got there can be hard to actually retrace,” said Lish. “But the new
Play and Idle Creativity involved a small group discussing the next big threats to humanity and what, if anything, we can do about them.
ways of thinking that occur, the epiphanies that happen midsentence sometimes…it’s a wonderful experience!” This isn’t Lish’s first use of conversation as a mode of artmaking. In the fall of 2012 he hosted a weekly discussion group at Crux Fermentation Project titled Sitting Around Drinking Beer and Solving All the World’s Problems, which involved dialogue inspired by readings in contemporary theory on labor, value and economics. He has held various other projects designed to engage the visitor in generative discussion at Bend’s Fall Fest, at the tbd community gallery and at the former Poet House Art, as well as at a subway stop in Boston. One of his local pieces done at the Poet House was Untitled - Retail Pricing in which he offered gallery visitors the opportunity to stand inside a 3-D drawing, but they would have to pay for the air that was breathed while within the drawing. Lish is currently working on a project for the Art Institute of Boston for June 2013. For this, participants will be given a classroom assignment of eating dinner and working in small groups to match each of the menu items to a set of thought provoking questions about American culture. He is in talks with the Deschutes National Forest about two different projects for the summer of 2014 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Lish will give an Art Talk at Atelier 6000 on June 11at 7pm on the use of dialogue as art form and the aesthetic experience created by participants in such works. Note: Play and Idle Creativity was conducted under special permission from the Lakeview District BLM. Aaron Lish, 541728-7264, firstname.lastname@example.org, http://artcriticalthinking.blogspot.com.

Summer Reading: Dirty Books
Kim McCarrell at Paulina Springs
oin Community Librarians Nate, Chandra, Jenny and Liisa for a look at what “dirty” book should be your next read. During the programs each of the four community librarians will be highlighting a different type of “dirty” book, from books about gardening to true crime accounts. The presentations are part of Deschutes Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, the theme of which encourages people to dig in and discover a ground breaking read. The programs are free and open to the public. According to Nate “dirty books” are guilty pleasures. Their content is racy, violent or lurid. The best ones are all three. Nate will talk about the sort of books you found buried deep in your parents’ bookshelves or that you secretly checked out from the library The sort of books you read while hiding beneath the bed covers, turning the pages way past your bedtime. Nate is a community librarian with the downtown Bend branch of Deschutes Public Library. He reluctantly read a lot of dirty books for this talk so you wouldn’t have to. Liisa has been with the Deschutes Public Library for 14 years. As a teen she tried to get out of gardening chores in her parents’ very large yard, using grass allergies as an excuse to get out of mowing the law. When she moved to Bend and bought a house, she realized “Yikes!” now I have to maintain a yard which was way bigger than the house plants that she used to kill on a regular basis. She joined the Eastside Garden Club, learned about the difficulties of gardening in Central Oregon and now her colorful garden is the envy of everyone on her street. During the book talk Liisa will highlight books on gardening. Jenny has worked at Deschutes Public Library in various capacities since 2008. She previously worked in the news business and wonders why it took her so long to make the switch to libraries. She admits that she is a book snob. She’s not always proud to admit it, but it’s true. She enjoys reading literary

eschutes Public Library welcomes award-winning author and indie favorite Monica Drake to the Downtown Bend Library on Sunday, June 9 for Second Sunday, the library’s monthly celebration of the written word. The reading is free and open to the public. An author signing follows and books will be available for purchase. Drake’s new novel, The Stud Book, is about the mating habits of animals—human and otherwise. “I write comedy about Monica Drake serious subjects,” says Drake. “The Stud Book is a comedy about overpopulation. It has a miscarriage in it. It has violence. I hope I’ve found the humor and humanity in the struggle of living within the physical urges, hopes and limits of one human-animal body on a crowded planet.”
n Friday June 14 at 6:30pm, Bend author Kim McCarrel will give a talk and slideshow based on her newest book, Riding Northwest Oregon Horse Trails at Paulina Springs Books in Redmond. McCarrel tells you everything you need to know including elevation, trail difficulty, terrain, what you will see, how to get there and where to camp. Her photos showcase the natural beauty of Oregon, and you will enjoy seeing them whether you are a rider, a hiker or an armchair nature enthusiast. Many trails she covers are multi-use, so join us even if you are not a horseback rider. There will be something for everyone. Refreshments will be served. $5 admission refunded upon purchase of the featured book. Paulina Springs Books, 422 SW Sixth St., Redmond, 541-526-1491. fiction and poorly written books make her tear out her hair. She loves finding new, groundbreaking books that push the boundaries of literature, publishing or societal norms. “Sure, I’ve laundered money,” says Chandra who has been with Deschutes Public Library since 2000. “Who hasn’t washed a pair of pants and discovered later that some cash was left in a pocket?” During the book talk Chandra will spotlight true crime books about dirty money. She admits there is something about true crime that appeals to her. Could it be something from her past? When asked about the possibility of a shady history Chandra replied “I plead the Fifth.” www.deschuteslibrary.org, 541-312-1032. www.facebook.com/CascadeAE | June 2013

dition who confronts Peter (Don Tompos), a married man with two daughters, two cats and two parakeets that lives in his own little zoo. The play’s suspenseful plot unfolds as Jerry relentlessly spills stories of his life onto Peter until the unforgettable climax and the story of the zoo. The play’s director, Derek Sitter, interprets the play as “two animals, one wild and one domesticated, and this is what happens when you throw them into the same cage.” Albee’s The Zoo Story addresses themes surrounding today’s economic climate and some of its inherent aftershocks. “There are many people who feel alone right now. I want to make sure they understand that they’re not,” says Volcanic Founder Sitter.

tage Right Productions and 2nd Street Theater present Company written by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, directed by Maralyn Thoma, Scott Michaelsen and David DaCosta. On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to “those good and crazy people,” his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life. In the end, he realizes being alone is “alone, not alive.” An honest, witty, sophisticated look at relationships, Company is as contemporary and relevant as ever (witness the recent hit revivals on Broadway and the West End). It features a brilliant energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best-known songs (including Another Hundred People, The Ladies Who Lunch and Being Alive). Company was among the first musicals to deal with adult themes and relationships. As Sondheim puts it, “Broadway Theater has been for many years supCompany will be on stage from June 7 to June 23 ported by upper-middle-class people with uppermiddle-class problems. These people really want to then here we are with Company talking escape that world when they go to the theatre, and about how we’re going to bring it right
back in their faces.” The Broadway Revival in 2006 won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, among other awards. “I have wanted to do Company since I saw it on opening night in New York in 1970, so this is a dream come true for me,” says Thoma. “We are blessed to have this talented cast who has worked so hard to sing the impossible Stephen Sondheim harmonies, and they do it beautifully.” Company features some of Central Oregon’s most talented performers, including David Simpson, recently seen in Cat Call Production of The Producers, Patty Davis, whose professional background includes 15 years of musical theatre and a Central Oregon favorite, Rachel Deegan, who has appeared in numerous 2nd Street Theater productions including Menopause the Musical. Performances are Friday June 7 through Sunday June 23, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm, with an Opening Night Black Tie Champagne Reception on June 7 from 6:30-8pm. There is no performance on Sunday June 9. Tickets are $21 for adults, $18 students/seniors. www.2ndstreettheater.com, 541-312-9626.
Bend Follies - Fun for Money
Bend Laughed at Itself to Benefit the Tower Theatre Foundation
Dobey, Billye Turner, Ed Carson, Mike Cheney, Sara Whipple, Ann Golden Egle, Joanne Sunnarborg, Tammy Baney, the High Desert Raisinettes, Lee Anderson, Alicia Inns, Sam Albert, Doug LaPlaca, Cate O’Hagan, Buffy Busik, Jeff Cox, Russell Nute and many others. “Everyone left the Follies feeling good about Bend, the Tower, their somewhat-talented friends and neighbors – and with very little money left in their wallets,” said Tower Foundation director of development Todd Dickerson. “And that’s what I call a successful fundraiser!” Specifically, the Follies raised $31,000 through donations, auctions, ticket sales, cash “votes” for gratuitous standing ovations and a $9,000 matching donation challenge. Ray Solley, executive director of the Tower Foundation, announced the 2014 Follies will be April 25 and 26. “If Bend wants another weekend to laugh at itself, and support a good cause, we can do that.” Solley said. The Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to provide performing arts, civic, educational and social events that enliven and enrich the lives of all Central Oregonians. 541-317-0700, www.towertheatre.org.

or two nights, prominent business, civic, educational and entertainment leaders showed off their singing, dancing and joke-telling skills and put some “fun” back in “fundraising” for the Tower Theatre Foundation. It was the first – and now annual – Bend Follies, a comedy show about Bend, by Bend and for Bend. “The Follies were designed to showcase the important role the nonprofit Tower Foundation plays in the cultural life of Central Oregon,” said Bob Singer, chair of the Tower’s board of directors. “We figured the best way to spread our message was through a lighthearted, fast-paced variety show; one that would open one night, and close the next!” he concluded. Follies hosts Donna James (The Mountain 99.7 FM) and David Simpson (The Producers; KPOV’s Big Screen/Little Screen), led a cast of nearly 90 volunteer performers including Bob Shaw, Mary Barackman (a.k.a.

Jeffrey Murray: A Gallery of Beauty by MITCH GRIMMETT, A&E Editorial Intern
fter four years of nonstop traveling, photographer Jeffrey Murray is ready to showcase his masterpieces in his latest gallery, opening for June’s First Friday Artwalk in Bend at 118 NW Minnesota. One only needs to glance at the enticing assortment of snapshots for a moment to tell that this collection was a long time in the making. Ranging from photos of rundown cars in barnyard fields to giant canyons in the approaching dusk, it is obvious that Murray has a great talent and passion for his line of work. It is also apparent that Murray holds a great love of nature and that he has interwoven these two major loves, photography and the environment, together. “I always liked looking at photos of nature,” Murray explained. “My family went skiing and hiking and I’ve always been interested in doing things outdoors.” This passion for the earth’s natural beauty does indeed ring true in the vast majority of Murray’s shots and his keen eye truly makes them stand out. Murray has another ace hidden up his sleeve that will undoubtedly make his photos pop even more. As opposed to displaying his photos in frames and printing them on traditional photo paper, he displays his images on aluminum. But, how exactly does that work? When heating aluminum, the metal goes through a process called sublimation in which it goes straight from a solid to a gas and skips the liquid state. The dyes needed to create the image are then infused into a high gloss coating,
which is applied to the treated aluminum instead of just printing on top of the medium. In this way, Murray’s elegant and durable prints are created. The technique has been around for quite some time but according to Murray, “It’s relatively new as far as photography goes.” After seeing this technique in action, it is difficult to believe that any photographer would stray from Murray’s example. The images are crisp, sharp and sleek, looking as if they were just printed on slim panes of glass. These artistic windows will allow visitors of the gallery to peer into locations around the world, both near and far. When asked about what viewers can expect from this collection, Allison, Murray’s partner in crime, responded with, “I think that people will see a lot of different places that are positioned both locally and across the Red Rock Dusk country. They’ll see locations that they’ve been before which they may not see in other local galleries as well as stuff from Yosemite, New York City, Wyoming and other places across the nation.” Following this response, both Murray and Allison emphasized that, above all, capturing these photos is not just a job. It is a passion. The images displayed in the gallery are a product of determination and hard work, which is a result of love for the game. If readers are looking for beauty encased in an aluminum vial, Jeffrey Murray’s new gallery is the place to find it. Jeffery Murray Gallery is opening June 7 and the grand opening is scheduled for June 29 with an all-day event. All visitors on June 29 will receive a gift and the chance to enter a free raffle to win a signed photograph. 541-325-6225, www.jeffreymurrayphotography.com.

Tin Pan Alley Collection Diversifies Public Art by RENEE PATRICK, Cascade A&E Editor

are each compensated $400 for their work, aren’t confined to two-dimensions, as Wachs’ piece is a sculptural abstract representation of the fault strata of the local landscape. “The Tin Pan Alley Collection is a really interesting departure from what we typically have going on. It’s more of a grass roots concentrated effort to feature local artists. The ‘gallery’ is an obscure location and a treasure to stumble upon,” said Wachs who has several public art pieces up around Bend including Ghost at the roundabout on Bond and Wilson. While the title of the project evokes a specific alley in Bend, the collection will eventually span the city. “There is Jesse Roberts of Rise Up International confusion over exactly which alley is truly Tin Pan Alley, I’ve been told different things,” LaPlaca explained. “Regardless, to me it’s not referring to a specific alley, it’s referring to a unique part of Bend’s culture, it’s the cool alley culture. “Right now we are selecting the artists to see who is interested, and as it evolves, who knows where it will go. Visit Bend doesn’t have to own this program, it could evolve to a point where an independent organization could manage it. The important thing now is making it happen.” “We believe public art should be part of any vibrant, forward thinking community and contributes to the overall attractiveness and diversity of any community,” said Perle. The sentiment was echoed by all involved with the project. “Not only will it be a great way for the artist to get recognition,” said McGuinness. “It is going to make the city so much more interesting and fun. Being a part of something that provides beauty to others is so very rewarding!” “The more that we can attract new and different kinds of visitors, the better off our tourism is going to be. Also great recreation alone doesn’t make for a tourism destination, its important that regardless of why people are visiting Bend, that we show them how well rounded our city is, and the arts and cultural offerings of Bend are a big part of that,” said LaPlaca. “The fact that this effort is being led by Visit Bend is an indication of the increasing importance of public art to the visitor’s experience of Bend as well as to our own citizens,” commented Special Projects Director Brad Emerson of the City of Bend. “We are really pleased that this is occurring and will be interested in hearing the public’s response.” Visit the City’s parking garage on Lava Street to see three of the artworks, and one on the exterior wall of the Oxford Hotel. www.facebook.com/CascadeAE | June 2013 13 Photo courtesy of Jesse Roberts
end’s newest public art project, the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection, will offer yet another opportunity for visitors and residents to engage with public spaces. With the installation of art by four different artists at the end of May, the project kicked off what is hoped to be a growing trail of art throughout the City. The new collection was spearheaded by Visit Bend’s President Doug LaPlaca after visiting Columbus, Ohio and viewing their art trail in an industrial part of town. “They had art installed on sheets of plywood in alleyways…and I thought it was the coolest thing,” he said. “As we have developed different arts programs that has been in the back of my mind.” As the idea was forming and evolving, Jesse Roberts of Rise Up International became the catalyst. For the past few years Roberts has been involved in street art projects in the Middle East and North Africa. “Every time I came home I had the desire to create something in Bend,” he explained. “I often park in the garage downtown, and that is where I had the idea to do some murals in the parking garage. The walls are just bare concrete canvases. I mentioned it to Doug and Valerie from Visit Bend and they put the funding together for the project and acquired the permission from the City.” “The City of Bend has been incredibly enthusiastic from the start,” commented LaPlaca. Three of the first four locations for the installations are in the City’s parking garage, with the fourth on the alley wall of The Oxford Hotel. “Doug LaPlaca and I have been talking about public and street Metal Artist Andrew Wachs art for a while now, and he came to us with this Alley Art collection idea and we loved it!” said Ben Perle, regional vice-president of operations for the Oxford Hotel Group. The plan is to show people what the program is with the first installations and from there bring in additional building owners who want to participate. “In the long term, this program will expand all over the city,” LaPlaca said. “It’s a way for public and private organizations and artists to collaborate in a very low cost, highly visible celebration of the arts culture in Bend.” Andrew Wachs, metal artist and fabricator, made the first 4’x8’ metal frames that were mounted in the identified spaces. Each artist then received one 4’x8’ sheet of plywood on which to work. Wachs is also one of the first artists along with Roberts, Mark Rada and a Visit Bend’s Pillars of Art artist, Megan McGuinness.

Brenda Reid Irwin Explores Through Eco-Art & Acrylics by RENEE PATRICK Cascade A&E Editor
ainter and photographer Brenda Reid Irwin may be a newer name in the Bend art world, but her use of color and diverse style can be found all around town. Showing in as many as five locations at a time, the multi-talented artist has always loved art and the inspiration it can foster.
Irwin didn’t start taking her art seriously until she and her husband moved to Bend in the fall of 2011. “I was working at AT&T, and when we left Seattle, I just wasn’t able to find a job of that caliber here, so thought while I was looking that I would start to paint more.” A few months later, she went downtown for ArtWalk and started cold calling. “Friends have always encouraged me to sell my work…and thought I could probably take some of my paintings down there.
Irwin has an eclectic background full of adventures including teaching water skiing on a Club Med cruise ship in the Lesser Antilles, ski bumming and living in Canada as well as selling real estate, renovating houses and 13 years assisting toplevel executives at AT&T.
“I got a lot of rejection,” she said. “I started out trying to sell picture note cards, and thought I would get in small… It wasn’t until I knocked on the door of Hot Box Betty and talked to Shelly that things turned around. She looked at the wall, and asked if I would hang there the next month. I was in shock, that was my first real lucky break,” Irwin said.
Her diverse interests and a curiosity about the world can be seen when glimpsing Irwin’s body of work as a whole: from forgotten old cars in a junkyard to abstract studies of lines and cityscapes, bursts of color to exploring the female form…it’s surprising this artist’s output is only a recent development as she Help, Junkyard Eco Art has been developing an artistic eye for many years.
“Its a really a good feeling to put up my work and get started that way, and then it was easier to go door to door.” Irwin started showing her work at Bend d’Vine last summer and now has artwork there indefinitely. She also had shows in Barrio and The Wine Shop.
Irwin began painting 10 years ago when she started expanding upon sketches on small canvases, but she soon discovered the joy of painting big. “I like to paint on big canvases with lots of color,” she explained. “I like to keep my mind open with ideas, and lately have been tending towards abstract art, there is a lot of freedom to it. “I’m still trying to find my style, I think it evolves as you go,” she said. “I don’t have any formal training…and I think about it all the time, sometimes I’m afraid to do that and find out I’m doing it wrong!” she laughed.

“Ideally you want to be in a gallery, a place where you don’t have to take it down, it’s hard on the paintings and it’s hard work,” she said. “In March I had work in five different places!” Brenda Reid Irwin
While Irwin has dabbled in painting landscapes, she has found herself leaning more towards the abstract. “I can’t get too realistic,” she said. “It’s art forms that inspire me, patterns, and
Cover Story most recently my paintings are almost urban looking. I like to go through art books, and am inspired by Picasso and Frida Kahlo, and I love Klee. I draw a lot of inspiration from the great artists.” In addition to painting, Irwin has taken to looking through the lens to capture her images. “I guess I have an eye, an artistic eye,” she commented. “Maybe I’ve always had it, and earlier in my life I was more focused on other things and now I have more of an appreciation of it.” Recently she produced a series called Junkyard Eco-Art. Visiting Terrebonne’s Swift & Mccormick metal yards, she maneuvered through heaps and piles of rust and junk to find her inspiration. “It’s a gigantic place, it’s overwhelming and I had my camera with me and thought I would look for color. I came up with a series of photographs, found a place that printed on recycled canvas and used soy and vegetable inks, so called it eco art. The images are small, 11x17, and are gallery wrapped.” June’s cover image, Poor Soul, is a cornerstone in the series and a print is currently for sale at Nancy P’s Bakery and Café in Bend. “Poor Soul is a favorite by many people,” she said. “There are five or six pieces of Eco-Art at Nancy P’s in addition to newer acrylic works on display through June.” Junkyard Eco-Art was on display during 2012’s Rubbish Renewed Fashion Show last fall, and her photographs are often published in The Source Weekly. “I was in the Source at least 40 times in a year and a half,” she said.
Irwin and her husband are currently splitting their time between Bend and Portland, but like many other people who find themselves in Central Oregon, it was the landscape and promise of big adventures that first attracted them to the area. “We had both skied Mt. Bachelor earlier in our lives and love the drier weather here. Our second vacation home turned into where we wanted to retire.” Irwin’s ambitions don’t stop with painting and photography, she would love to open a gallery in downtown Bend at some point. “It would be great to bring other artists in and be part of the art scene,” she said. A more immediate goal takes the shape of a studio where she could paint full time. “I’ve met really wonderful people in Bend that have helped me through my career,” Irwin attested. “Shelly at Hot Box Betty, Katie and Tim at Nancy P’s, Linda Strunk at St. Charles and other artists Kevin Schwarting and Gurney Miller. We talk and collaborate; it’s great to feel like we are part of the art scene.” Celebration

atricia Clark of Atelier 6000 was named one of 11 regional representatives for the I Am Oregon campaign, which called on Oregonians to nominate and recognize everyday heroes doing good in their communities. The campaign received more than 1,200 nominations from across the state. Clark received numerous nominations for her dedication to cultivating the arts community in Central Oregon. Moving to Bend in 2005, she founded Atelier 6000, a fully professional printmaking studio and collaborative space for artists at every level where students learn directly from master artist teachers. “I was an artist who didn’t believe in myself or my talents. I have always had learning disabilities, which led to no self-esteem, and I also suffer from PTSD,” said Beale Ridgway Jones. “Pat taught me to believe in myself and my abilities. She not only taught
me how to be a printmaker, but a confident grown woman who now sells my work in a gallery in Bend.” Another nominator, Amy Royce, acknowledged Clark’s leadership in the community. “Through networking with other community Patricia Clark leaders, Pat is continuing to engage in the future of Bend’s art scene and how it can expand to include more and more of the population,” said Royce. Atelier 6000 bridges the 21st century and electronic arts underscoring the concepts of printmaking and book arts. A guardian of traditional equipment, A6 provides access to the time honored technology of printmaking and book arts, a 15th century process using handmade type and creating hand pulled prints and hand crafted books.
Workshops are open to the public and perfect for those exploring new techniques, serious art students and the professional artist. Atelier 6000’s presentation gallery is dedicated to six contemporary theme-based exhibits per year. Presentations, demonstrations and hands-on interpretive experiences offered through the presentation gallery enrich the cultural appreciation of the community. Atelier 6000 believes that collaboration and networking of non-profits and community organizations, international print and book art societies create a strong synergy of creative energy. Clark was selected as the Central Oregon regional representative by a group of her peers at the Oregon Unlimited Roadshow, a series of network-
ing events that convened communityminded Oregonians in six cities across the state. Clark received a $100 gift card and rain jacket from Columbia Sportswear and a trip to the Conference on Volunteering and Service in Washington, DC this June. The conference is the world’s largest gathering of volunteer and service leaders from the nonprofit, corporate and government sectors. Clark will attend the conference with the other regional representatives from every corner of the state, from a teen to an octogenarian, from those working to improve access to health care in rural communities to community arts. I Am Oregon was launched by Meyer Memorial Trust to kick off Oregon Unlimited, a new online tool and network as a virtual commons to share ideas and resources and connect to take action for the public good. Clark and the other representatives from across the state will share what they learn through Oregon Unlimited.
Fine Art Show Attracts Incredible Talent Art in the High Desert Draws Record Applications
ven before news of Art in the High Desert’s national ranking spread, Central Oregon’s premier juried fine arts and crafts show was drawing record numbers of applications from across North America. A juried show, Art in the High Desert asks applying artists to go above and beyond the usual and takes artist selection very seriously. It is also a show that is created, managed and run by artists and art patrons. When applications closed in midFebruary, show organizers could boast a ranking as the 14th best fine arts festival in sales in the nation as compiled by Greg Lawler’s Fine Art Fair SourceBook. They could also toot their horn about a record number of applications (480) from artists in 28 states and British Columbia. “When the applications began coming in, we knew right away that even though our standards are very high this pool of artists was going to make the jury process extremely difficult,” said show director Carla Fox. “The quality of work is simply astounding.” Raven #1 by Kim and Phil Chavez of Powell Butte
www.CascadeAE.com| June 2013
From those 480 applications, the jury had the task of choosing just over 100 to invite, nearly half of which are new this year. Those artists coming to Bend in August Robot H. Goddard bring with them a wealth of stories by Amy Flynn of and accolades. Raleigh NC “Furniture maker Greg Klassen participated in the Smithsonian Craft Show, a great story in itself,” said board member Cameron Kaseberg. “But the story took a huge turn when Martha Stewart requested a live interview with Greg on the show floor. That’s just one example. “Other examples include artists featured on Oregon Art Beat, in local and national magazines and those who have wagon loads of Best of Show awards to name but a few. It is an honor to have these artists coming to Bend and sharing their work.” Art in the High Desert showcases over 100 talented, professional artists each year and takes place the weekend before Labor Day weekend in Bend’s Old Mill District. The 2013 festival event dates are August 23-25. www.artinthehighdesert.com.
Torrey & Bob Newhart Collaborate on New CD Marmara Father & Son Merge Jazz & Art by RENEE PATRICK, Cascade A&E Editor Photo by Cascade A&E Staff
“It’s the interplay of art and music,” Bob Newhart shared. “I paint to music, jazz in particular, and look at music as a painting with color. Music and jazz, and art and painting share a lot: textures, themes, rhythm and beat…I’m more into what does that sound like in color? What does that translate into on a canvas? Bob has been a life-long jazz enthusiast and Torrey grew up surrounded by music, his career ambitions began early as well: at four years old he picked up a violin and at six the piano. Torrey is now a masters student in the Jazz Studies program at the University of Oregon with a focus on composition and arranging. Bend audiences may remember 2010’s Cabaret production Bob & Torrey Newhart by Cat Call Productions where Torrey was the musical director. Radiohead is popular with Bob’s art began recently, picking up the paint brush seven years ago.

One of the most interesting aspects of the paintings inspired by music was the Another notable set of songs is “testing” of the art. Torrey explained showing his band members his father’s paintings, the four-part Sage Passage Suite. and asking them to match the art to the songs, “They got them all right!” he said. The Suite is steeped in philoPhilosophy factors heavily into Torrey’s compositions, believing that “music has the posophic questioning and is a nod tential and power to remove people from themselves and take a step back from everyday to Torrey’s middle name, Sage. issues in life, allowing one to reflect on and fully experience the diversity of humanity.” With Torrey on keyboard Paintings from the Sage Passage Suite and piano, fellow band members included another Bend musician, Adam Carlson on drums, Sean Peterson on bass, Tony Glausi on trumpet, Adam Harris on saxophone and Eddie Bond on guitar. Bob produced the album and has helped with the business side of releasing a CD, a daunting process. With the help of an Indigogo fundraising campaign, the Newports raised over $3,000 to finish the project. The critical I The Sage IV Where Do We Go From Here funds went towards the mixing, mastering, promotion, design, CD duplication, legal and assorted fees.

armara not only plays the part of muse and serves as the title track on Torrey Newhart’s debut album, but the inland sea in Turkey can be an apt metaphor for his approach to jazz music. The Sea of Marmara is the connection between the Eastern Asian influence in Turkey and the Western or European other side of the country. Torrey, having visited Marmara in 2006, was not only inspired by the experience, but in turn has been inspired to explore connections in his music, combining philosophy and art for a greater purpose. The bringing together of influences creates harmony and, yes, dissonance too, but his goal is to highlight the commonalities between the genres. “I want to explore the connection between music, philosophy and art and the unique universality that all three share with the human experience,” he states. Torrey composes his music with these connections in mind, but the real-time harmony in this album comes with his father’s additions: paintings inspired by, and painted for each track on the CD.

Druian & Shuck at Sunriver Resort Lodge
unriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery presents a fine art exhibit in the upper gallery featuring Janice Druian, oil landscapes, and Vicki Shuck, oil figurative paintings. Vicki Shuck, an artist since childhood, presents figurative oil paintings with continuing emphasis on the beauty of the ordinary. Her interest in figurative imagery began during her BA study in art at OSU in the mid-70s. Her ’89 move to Bend led to teaching art at St. Francis School with her artwork focusing on the figure from sacred texts and as illustrations for inspirational publishers. In ’07, Shuck followed a deep yearning to depict the wonder and beauty of the every day. Working from photos, the artist began small, expressionistic oil paintings of café patrons and waitresses, rodeos and horses, dogs, mothers and children, and others. Noted for this enduring affection for the commonplace, the exhibition

marks a broadening focus on larger scale works that continue to explore her life in Bend and during travel including New York City. The New York related works depict its environmental impact on lifestyle - the intense focus and hurried movement - in contrast to the relaxed pace of Central Oregon. The artist perseveres in the use of dramatic, back-lighted subjects with subtle color found in more obscure foregrounds. Her palette also emphasizes limited (three – four) prominent hues with other less evident color as accent, purposefully directing the focus to the chosen subjects. Thus Shuck’s secular imagery continues her devotional work, celebrating the spiritual nature of the ordinary. Her exquisite painting transforms the sometimes mundane to revered moments of the sacred. Janice Druian presents oil landscapes of the Central Oregon Cascades. Inspired by Edgar Payne’s dramatic paintings of the Sierra Nevadas, she captures the drama of Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Washington and other peaks as well as
the beauty of the shimmering aspens of the Cascades. Druian took a Masters in Art Education at U of O. Her art appeared at the 7th Annual (2013) Plein Air Invitational in Borrego Springs and the Yosemite Renaissance XV at the Museum at Yosemite National Park. St. Charles Hospital recently added two of her works to their permanent collection. Appearing in the lower gallery is Mike Smith, watercolor and oil paintings. Smith returns to the Betty Gray Gallery after an 18 month sabbatical with a show of his whimsical images of “people, places and animals I love.” His works appear in collections globally including Hollywood personality David DePatie, originator of the Pink Panther cartoons. Sunriver Resort invites the public to visit the exhibition open until June 28 at the Lodge, all hours. Billye Turner organizes exhibitions for Sunriver Resort and provides additional information at 541382-9398.

f variety is the spice of life, then artist Lori Salisbury’s alluring new gallery in Sisters is one flavorful dose of inspiring eye candy. Occupying the downtown corner formerly home to Dan and Julia Rickards’ Clearwater Gallery, Salisbury has recently opened her doors to welcomed art lovers into a cornucopia of visual delights. From her own Native-American themed landscapes and soothing pastoral settings, to the luscious glass sand dollars and sea creatures of Jeff and Heather Thompson, the Lori Salisbury Gallery is filled with a colorful array of local and regional art with a flair for discovering original creations in wood, glass and canvas. Salisbury was originally born in Southern Idaho and moved to Colorado in 1985 where she owned a run of galleries in Estes Park, Boulder, Pagosa Springs and Loveland. She’s a self-taught artist, dexterous with a brush and palette for nearly 35 years, beginning her career depicting Native American compositions and moving on to wildlife studies. “I was inspired by where I grew up and started from a young age,” she recalled. “I lived next to the Shoshone Indian Reservation and my grandmother, who had a cabin in the mountains, got me into painting so I was always right there in the forest. Sculpting is new for me these last 10 years, mostly in bronze and bonded bronze.” Salisbury’s new gallery is a kind of soothing cocktail of art, with some consignment artists and others strictly on a co-op basis. “I like to have diversity here so I brought in some whimsical glass sculptures, Raku pottery by Tina Brockway, the spiritual gourd art of Susan Harkness-Williams, contemporary paintings from Dorota Nowak, burlwood furniture and cool vintage pieces reborn through creative hands.” The glassblowing team of Jeff and Heather Thompson produce some amazing, whimsical pieces, with glass totem poles, sea turtles, crabs, decorative vases and fat frogs dozing on oversized lily pads gleaming from the front shelf and perimeter walls. “I think he’s one of the best glass artists I’ve ever seen, it’s natural and very colorful and eyecatching. I’m so glad to have him here.” Also exhibiting in the gallery is Roxanne McKay, a good friend of Salisbury who helped paint the Nazca Lines mural inside Hola! restaurant in Bend. McKay specializes in taking old furniture and turning it into something fun and creative, yesterday’s yard sale trash becoming heirloom treasures. Salisbury is also bringing in bronze artist Heather Soderberg out of Cascade Locks on the Oregon Coast. “She sculpts nature and people and has been doing art since she was two years old,” said Salisbury. “Heather does some amazing work and we’re proud to be including her in our roster of artists.

“My own art has always had a message behind it, a love and respect for the Earth and preserving nature for future generations. One of my favorite quotes by Chief Joseph is that we do not inherit the Earth, we borrow it from our children.” Salisbury admits being essentially nomadic her whole life. “Many of my paintings come from my grand adventures and roaming,” she said. “Ten years ago I bought a pop-up camper that sits on the back of my truck and traveled around the West, painting and exploring. I kept hearing about Bend and researched it a little, then packed up the truck and came here a year and a half ago.” In a fortuitous move, Salisbury had been looking at Sisters as a gallery destination since she first relocated to Central Oregon. “I like the vibe here and believe it goes well with my work. It feels like home. I came into Clearwater Gallery last summer right before they moved out. I knew it had been an established gallery and had high visibility. When I came back this winter I saw it was empty and I moved on it fast. “I wanted this gallery to be a place for my art as well as a collection of artists I love and admire that would compliment my style and offer clients a rich array of artistic choices,” she said. Her work can be best described as visionary, not only in style and composition, but in its potent emotional effect, drawing peace and inspiration from nature and the unseen world. “This is going to be a working studio gallery too, with events and workshops all summer long with guest artists painting and sculpting. There’s a barn in the back and I hope to rent that out and turn it into a classroom and an extension of the gallery.” This is Salisbury’s first gallery with such an eclectic mix of artwork generating a palpable synergy to locals and tourists. “I’m really excited to be here in Sisters and look forward to becoming a vibrant part of the local art scene and giving back to this great community.” A grand opening celebration is planned for the Lori Salisbury Gallery on Friday, June 21 from 4-8 p.m. They’re located at 391 West Cascade Ave. in downtown Sisters.

Welcome to the BBC
by LINDEN GROSS, One Stop Writing Shop
y dad discovered the Bend Brewing Company (or the BBC as it’s called) shortly after moving to Bend. Instead of holing up at home alone, he would head there more often than not for dinner. I know exactly why. The food is solidly dependable and the casual friendliness makes you feel like you’ve dropped into a friend’s house rather than a restaurant—and a house on the river no less. Before heading to the BBC to do my review, one of my chums raved about bartender Eric, who’s been there 15 years and is actually now making cocktails with freshsqueezed juice as well as pouring beer and wine. Another friend recommended the burger. A third person announced that the fish and chips are the best they’ve ever had. Then I learned about the BBC’s Local Tuesdays, where the beer is just $2.75 a pint, as well as their Happy Hour with half-price appetizers. How did I not know about all
this? I wondered. By the time I arrived at the brew pub, my nephew already had a plate of nachos waiting. Crunchy chips were layered with black beans that have a hint of sweetness due to being soaked in the BBC’s dark, malty Pinnacle Porter, as well as melted cheddar cheese and salsa, and then topped with guacamole and sour cream. In short, they were everything that good nachos should be. We also enjoyed the calamari, billed on the menu as “locally famous for good reason.” They were light, hot and crispy. The accompanying dipping sauce was a surprise, a blend of Chinese hot mustard, honey, lemon, sugar, spices and a splash of red wine vinegar. I knew it was overkill on the deep-fried front, but I BBC’s Pinnacle Porter had to order the Brewery Fish and Chips. I’m glad I did because they were just as good as I’d been told. The tempura and Golden Ale batter (the same one used for the calamari) works so much better than a traditional batter in large measure because the fish winds up absorbing a lot less oil. The Atlantic Cod was mild and super fresh. “This doesn’t taste like fish,” said my nephew when he tasted my entrée. “More like very creamy potatoes.” He had ordered the Thai Curry Sauté, a medley of fresh vegetables in a Thai coconut curry sauce served over a bed of rice and topped with Tri-tip. The beef was tender and juicy despite being cut into small pieces that would have been very easy to overcook. The shredded vegetables, which included yellow squash, zucchini, carrots, snow peas and red cabbage, melded the bright flavors of yellow curry with coconut milk’s heavy sweetness. I loved the fact that the vegetables weren’t even slightly mushy, but for some reason they didn’t seem to work with the beef. Opting for the chicken or veggie options might have worked better
Dining for me. Still, I enjoyed stealing separate bites of both the beef and the curry vegetables. After all I’d heard, I didn’t expect the high point of the evening to be dessert, but then I’d never had the Pinnacle Pub Brownie before. OMG! Imagine a soft, rich, warm chocolate brownie that virtually melts in your mouth. Add vanilla ice-cream, top with house-made chocolate malt balls, and drizzle with the BBC’s signature Pinnacle Porter ganache, a sauce that blends dark chocolate, cream and yes, the brewery’s robust Pinnacle Porter. “This is ridiculously good,” I thought to myself. We didn’t have room for a second dessert, which I still regret. I just have to try the marionberry crisp since the marionberry compote is infused with the BBC’s Ching Ching sour beer. I love the expression: Life is short. Eat dessert first. And that just might be my approach the next time I hit the BBC.

Daft Punk Random Access Memories
www.CascadeAE.com| June 2013
or the past 40 years the music legend has invited fans to celebrate with him over the July 4th holiday. Once again, the annual event will be held at the Fort Worth Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas on July 4th, but this year they are celebrating Willie’s 80th birthday. Returning to help Willie celebrate will be such stars as Leon Russell, Kris Kristofferson, David Allan Coe, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Ray Price. In addition, Academy Award and Grammy winner Ryan Bingham and rising star Justin Moore are scheduled to perform. Beginning in 1973 in Dripping Springs, Texas, Willie’s 4th of July Picnic has become a Texas tradition unlike any other. At its start, the hippie movement was well under way when a 40-year-old Willie Nelson decided to hold a music festival in a field in Dripping Springs. Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Tom T. Hall headlined the festival that brought over 40,000 people to the inaugural run of what would become a Texas tradition. In 1975, just a few days before Willie’s third annual picnic, the Texas Senate honored Willie by declaring July 4, 1975, as Willie Nelson Day in Texas. It was a big deal in 2004 when Nelson announced that he was bringing his picnic to one of his boyhood homes – Fort Worth. With a six-decade career and a catalog of more than 200 albums to his credit, the iconic Texas singer-songwriter Willie Nelson has earned a permanent position in pop music’s pantheon with songs that combine the sophistication of Tin Pan
Alley with the rough-and-tumble grit and emotional honesty of country music. He brought pop and country together on the radio in the early 1960s with unforgettable songs like Crazy (Patsy Cline), Hello Walls (Faron Young), Funny How Time Slips Away (Billy Walker), Night Life (Ray Price) and others and, by the mid-1970s, had become a superstar in his own right as a prime mover of a revolutionary and thriving outlaw country music scene. The Red Headed Stranger, Willie’s first album for Columbia Records in 1975, catapulted the artist to the front ranks of popularity across America and around the world. A seven-time Grammy Award winner, Willie is a co-founder of Farm Aid, an annual series of fundraising events which began as an all-star benefit concert in 1985 to raise money for American family farmers. He continues to lobby against horse slaughter and produces his own blend of biodiesel fuel. An old-school road-dog troubadour with new school wheels, Willie plays concerts year-round, tirelessly touring on Honeysuckle Rose III (he rode his first two buses into the ground), taking his music and fans to places that are always worth the ride. Following on the successful 2012 CD release Heroes, Willie Nelson and Family are back with a diverse, heartwarming CD release titled Let’s Face the Music and Dance. Willie has put together some old favorites (Twilight Time, South of the Border) with a balanced combination of jazzy, bluesy, popish/rocky, country and Latin influenced tracks. Perhaps at 80 he’s reminding us once again to not try to box him in some category of music or style. After all he’s just Willie! by Pamela Hulse Andrews

fter the most extensive marketing campaign I have seen in years, and the considerable pre-release fervor, I decided to pick up Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories. For those unfamiliar with Daft Punk, they’re a French electronic music duo who have been creating electronic dance music for the better part of the last 20 years. Their unique sound has been a huge influence on the genre and pop music in general, but I fear that their latest album has been a step backwards. Fans of their earlier work looking for Homework Part 2 or a sequel album to Discovery will be sorely disappointed, as Random Access Memories moves in a completely different direction. Gone are the inventive high-energy riffs of albums past, in favor of a mashup between ‘70s funk grooves and minimalist electronic beats. Although I did generally enjoy the album, when it was over I couldn’t recall a single standout track. Around the fifth song it all begins to sound sort of like elevator music, where it becomes nothing more than background noise, even when listening was the sole activity I was doing at the time. This album stands in stark contrast to the other big names in electronic dance music right now, and I think it does so to its own detriment. The music is well composed and the production is immaculate, like all Daft Punk releases, but I can’t help but think the music is lacking the excitement and energy of the Daft Punk I’ve been listening to all these years. Overall I’d rate Random Access Memories at a 6/10, it is worth a listen but isn’t anything amazing or revolutionary. by Andrew Danfelt

Blind Pilot to Headline at Hullabaloo Festival
he NorthWest Crossing Hullabaloo, a Bend street festival set for June 28, is kicking off summer in style with headline musical act, Blind Pilot. This American indie folk band is based in Portland and made its network television debut on The Ellen Show earlier this year as one of her favorite bands. Their debut album from 2008, 3 Rounds and a Sound, reached 13 on the Billboard Top Digital Albums chart. Blind Pilot, which is known for such tunes as Go On, Say It and Story I Heard, released their second album We Are The Tide in 2011. The band gained attention in 2008 when they went on a self-produced bicycle tour of the West Coast to promote their first album, and later when they opened for the Decemberists and made some large festival appearances, such as last year’s Lollapalooza in Chicago. Their act will begin at around 8:30pm on June 28 at the NorthWest Crossing Hullabaloo, preceded by several other local and regional musical acts. Blind Pilot www.nwxevents.com

Many of the women who come to rehearsals have commented that they “haven’t sung since high school” or “I only sing in the car or shower.” If you can carry a tune, the talented director and music team will help everyone reach their true potential. If you plan to attend: email@example.com.

sultry voice like Tracy and Hepburn.” Willamette Week praised their refreshing take on traditional Americana as “more than a little modern pop sensibility…a touch of Graceland.” Since performing at the Tower last spring, The Bottlecap Boys have made a mark on the Portland music scene. Their infectious, boot-stompin’ folk music, in the vein of The Avett Brothers and John Prine, captures the freedom of middle America with the pace of a big city. “We challenge your face to push the borders of its smile,” says co-founder and mandolin player Ross Becker. Bend folk-pop singer/songwriter Laurel Brauns opens the night performing original songs that blend her Central Oregon experiences with the artistic sensibilities of her current home, Portland. 541-317-0700 or TowerTheatre.org.
The Importance of Performance
une first is a very important day for Cascade School of Music. It is the day of Crescedo Bendo, our annual all-school recital. On June 1, most of our nearly 500 students will perform on stage at the beautiful Tower Theatre in downtown Bend. It is an event that is anticipated all year long by our students, faculty and families. In the weeks approaching this year’s performance, the halls of our school have been abuzz with lots of excitement and a good bit of nervous energy. Anyone who has performed in front of an audience knows that performance is not easy. The smallest of our students are often the least anxious - the inhibition of childhood often includes the gift of fearlessness. Many of our older students experience varying degrees of apprehension around performing. For all of our students, Crescendo Bendo is not only a great opportunity to showcase the hard work and dedication of a year of practice, it is also a wonderful way to develop important skills learned through performance itself, skills that translate beyond the Tower Theatre stage. Performance teaches confidence and poise. It contains lessons in making mistakes, particularly strategies for recovery and the importance of an unwavering smile! Performance helps us face fears of failure and it offers the unmistakable feeling of elation when the show is done, especially if it is done well. Most of all, it teaches the value of dedication and hard work, how to prepare something so well that you can let go of your fear and have fun. Just like learning a difficult piece of music, performance takes practice. At Cascade School of Music we believe that music is about more than mastering an instrument. It is about developing confidence and composure; it is about learning how to engage others through music, and having a great time in the process. by Jeannemarie Halleck, development director of the Cascade School of Music. The Music Beat is a monthly column that appears in Cascade A&E covering a wide array of musical topics for musicians and music lovers young and old.

ive singer-dancer-actresses and a live band celebrate the rock ‘n’ roll of Broadway, the best of pop radio and 1960’s girl groups. June 29 and 30 are perfect “girls nights out” as the Tower Theatre Foundation presents The Broadway Dolls. It’s a weekend of show stoppers, rock anthems and power ballads from Mamma Mia, Grease, Chorus Line, Chicago—just to name a few. Broadway Dolls is the first installment of the Tower’s 2013 Marquee Series, sponsored by U.S. Bank and BendBroadband. The Broadway Dolls was created in 2007 by Broadway veteran Hollie Howard while she was in the original company of Hairspray. The quintet debuted at the 2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival, and has since played Broadway Dolls throughout North America and China. Their imaginative and sexy revue showcases nearly 50 classic Broadway show tunes, many of which the Dolls themselves performed in New York productions, including Mamma Mia, Grease, Spiderman, Chicago, Rock of Ages, Chorus Line and Rent. Plus, the Dolls mash up American standards like Singin’ in the Rain with current hits by Lady Gaga and Carly Rae Jepsen. They also pay homage to 1960’s girl group favorites Heatwave, One Fine Day and Leader of the Pack. 541-317-0700 or TowerTheatre.org.

art workshops ART IN THE MOUNTAINS www.artinthemountains.com, 503-930-4572, firstname.lastname@example.org. These workshops are all held at the Phoenix Inn Suites in Bend. Nicholas Simmons Watermedia Workshop, August 12-16, 9am-3pm. You’ll never think about painting the same way again! Prepare yourself for Nicholas’ high energy, unorthodox and varied approach to watercolor. This workshop will focus on concepts, composition and design elements with concentration on diversity in subject matter; poured watercolor; fluid acrylic used as transparent watercolor; unusual textures such as his popular “batik” technique; large scale painting; computer-aided design and creative photography for obtaining unconventional reference shots. Nicholas was the sole judge representing the U.S. at the Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial, the world’s largest watercolor exhibition, in 2010 and 2012. Robert Burridge Mixed Media Workshop, August 19-23, 9am-3pm. Think Matisse, Rauschenburg, Diebenkorn, Motherwell… and you! Bob will guide you to paint the way you have always wanted to paint. Using your own ragbag of cool stuff to glue and assemble, plus acrylic paint and your off-center imagination, you will learn how to begin a new fresh body of work with your own artistic voice and point of view. And, imagine painting with no brushes! This wild workshop is about jumping off the cliff and creating artwork no one has ever seen you do. Burridge is the Honorary President of the International Society of Acrylic Painters See other workshops on www.cascadeae.com calendar/workshops.

New Perspective For June by Eileen Lock
ooperation is the theme this month and it will be time to appreciate the people in your life. Family becomes very important the first week so let yourself enjoy them. Decisions made on the 3rd are cooperative and will help you feel more comfortable about the direction you are going. The 7th is a huge day as you are asked to trust what is taking place. Let go of needing to explain yourself and continue moving forward towards more happiness. The New Moon on the 8th is combined with a change of direction and it will be necessary to have faith. Conversations on the 10th can inspire healing especially if you can let go of old emotions. Make a new decision at this time and be sure that you believe in your choices. You could find yourself turning a corner on the 12th and by the 14th you will be glad that you did. Changes on the 17th will bring a lighter energy and it will be time to think about your needs. Opportunities are realized on the 19th and if you are willing to say “Yes” you could be amazed by what happens over the next few days. Express your gratitude on the 20th as you move into the Summer Solstice. Remember to keep your heart open and be honest about how you feel. The Full Moon on the 23rd is a time to check in with yourself to be sure you are prepared for what is coming. More opportunities present themselves after the 25th and you need to be receptive to the cooperation of others. Slow down on the 26th and realize it will be important to be patient over the next couple of weeks. Focus on your needs over the last few days and remind yourself that your happiness is important.
