Salute to Arts Groups

When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it’s you with a camera bossing your friends around. But as an adult, filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.

This award honors individuals, organizations and businesses that have made significant contributions to the City’s arts, culture, natural environment or public spaces in the year 2013. Award winners are honored at a reception at Bend City Hall in June. Matt Schiffman, chair of the ABC Commission said, “Bend has an amazing depth of artistic participation in all facets of arts and culture. We want to recognize and honor those who contribute to Bend’s unique flavor.” The selections are based on an array of criteria including the level of community impact and strength of visitor attraction. In the past, 10 awards were presented, but the Commission has decided that fewer awards make it more prestigious. Forms at Submit nominations before April 18, 541-388-5505 or ABC Awards, City of Bend, PO Box 431, Bend, OR 97709.

The Power of Humor When humor goes, there goes civilization. - Erma Bombeck


aking ourselves seriously is a great advantage in business. Exuding a sense of confidence, control and respectability can open doors and attract new prospects, but in addition, cultivating a sense of humor can help you lower stress levels, interact more easily with others and even diffuse difficult situations. Last April Cascade A&E took to the stage at the Tower Theatre with some of our friends and peers in the community. No, we aren’t performers or even have much stage presence, but as part of the first annual Bend Follies we dressed up as raisins and danced to I Heard it Through the Grapevine. City Councilors, radio and TV personalities and other prominent Bend figures danced, sang, acted and told jokes in front of hundreds of people. It was terrifying but also exhilarating to let loose and laugh at ourselves, and it’s reassuring to know that some very respectable people in the community also have a sense of humor. Once again the Bend Follies are set to tease and entertain on April 25 and 26 at the Tower Theatre (see story on page 34). Established as a fundraiser for the Tower Theatre Foundation, audience members can use their dollars to vote for their favorite act, or purchase a “Shameless Plug” to be incorporated into a Follies sketch onstage. So give it a try: laugh more, tell a joke or even get some pointers from the Bend Follies. According to Erma Bombeck, our civilization depends on it!

Storyteller Susan Strauss, Seeds From the Sun: Stories of Farmers, Gardens & Earth Wisdom


end Storytelling Circle announces a performance April 25 by local Bend storyteller Susan Strauss. In celebration of Earth Day she will be telling traditional tales from around the world that explore the whimsy and wisdom that surrounds gardens and farms. On hand at the concert will be local farmers with information available about Consumer Supported Agriculture. Strauss is well known to Central Oregon audiences who have enjoyed her performances at the High Desert Museum as well as many other places around the area. She uniquely combines mythic traditional story with personal anecdote and scientific information, drawing the listener into Nature’s realm. As an environmental educator and natural history interpreter she has performed stories and held workshops beyond Central Oregon, around our country and internationally, including the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh, the Smithsonian, the National Geographic Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Grand Can-

yon, Yosemite, Yellowstone and most other National Parks. Strauss is grounded in the mystical wonder of the earth and her stories weave a magical spell. She lives her stories and embodies each of her characters, bringing them to life with such vivid detail that her audiences literally lose themselves in the fantasy, transported away into a realm where wisdom touches the gardens, enriches the Susan farmlands and circles the earth. Recognized Strauss as one of the finest storytellers in the country today, she has produced multi-cultural storytelling books and award winning audio recordings of both children’s and adult stories., April 25, 7pm, 2nd Street Theater at 220 NE Lafayette Ave., Bend, $10., 541-389-1713.


wo young actresses from Bend are on a mission to make it to the Great White Way for a Broadway Artist’s Alliance (BAA) Summer Intensive Workshop in July of this year. Actresses Miya Corpstein,11, and Macy Pofahl, 10, have been accepted into the workshop and hope to expand and refine their current skills. They will each attend advanced master classes in their majors (acting and voice) and get to choose from more than 30 electives to develop their “triple threat” talents. As BAA students, the girls will receive private coaching, attend a Broadway show and participate in a special master class taught by a TONY Award winning guest. Both girls have extensive experience living out imaginary circumstances on stage. They both especially love musical theatre and having performed in many local productions in Central Oregon. Both performers agree that one of their favorite aspects of theater life is taking on new challenging roles and collaborating with other talented and creative theater people.  Miya understands that “acting and singing require a lot of hard work and training,” and is honored to have the opportunity to be trained by the best

The Little Mermaid at BEAT

EAT, the home of quality youth theatre presents Disney’s The Little Mermaid, which is a stage  musical based on the animated 1989 Disney film and the classic tale of the same name. “Far  out in the ocean, where the water is as blue as the prettiest cornflower, and as clear as crystal, it is very, very deep; so deep, indeed, that no cable could fathom it: many church steeples, piled one upon another, would not reach from the ground beneath to the surface of the water above. There, dwell the Sea King and his subjects,” wrote Danish author  Hans Christian Andersen in 1837. Last August, the 100 year birthday of The Little Mermaid was celebrated ~ not the red-headed Disney character with a knack for mischief, but her ancestor the statue, an embodiment of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairy-tale character, who sits in the Copenhagen harbor on a rock waiting for her prince to arrive. At the theatre located at Bend High School, you’ll be able to see this fabulous musical production. “The script is from the Broadway version of The Little Mermaid,” says Director Jimena Shepherd.“It stays true to the Disney animation allowing for the onstage factor of actually being underwater. This version brings more of the story to life

and incorporates more of the characters.” Shepherd explained the excitement and commitment of the crew and the actors is very contagious. There is a lot of difficult choreography by Emilee Lathrop who has kept the cast members working very hard. The thespians have had to use increased effort on their harmonies and character development. All in all, she believes, The Little Mermaid is going to raise the bar of expectations for BEAT musicals. Jimena has been amazed at the passion and dedication of everyone involved. Jack Daley as Prince Eric & Avery Sonya Arnis, most recently seen in Carlson as Ariel, the Mermaid BEAT’s production of Alice in Wonderland (medium sized Alice) was asked about the difference between rehearsing for a musical as compared to a drama. “. . . they are different because when participating in a musical, I have less free time because of the choreography and songs that I have to memorize. The rehearsals are longer, (three hours instead of two) and it is critical to be at rehearsal because dances are hard to choreograph without all the dancers. Straight-up plays are similar to musicals because they both require a lot of effort and commitment. Even if an actor may seem like they have a small role, they really don’t know how much the cast needs them to make the show complete. There is much more blocking in straight-up plays, but both are equally fun and enjoyable.” In a magical underwater kingdom, the young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home (and her fins) behind and sing in the world above with Prince Eric. She has to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula and so much more. This production is appropriate for all ages. April 18-20,,, 541-419-5558.

Rare Exhibit of M.C. Escher’s Original Prints at Atelier 6000



Sky and Water I woodcut printed 1938 by M.C. Escher

wenty one original prints by famed artist M.C. Escher will be on display at Atelier 6000 starting April 4. The exhibit, M.C. Escher: 21 Prints, opens on First Friday with a reception from 5:30-8pm. The exhibit runs through May 31. M.C. Escher was a prolific artist and master printmaker, producing more than 400 original prints in his lifetime. The exhibit showcases Escher’s skill in wood cut, wood engraving, lithography and linocut. The prints speak to Escher’s fascination with illusion, whether created through tessellations, impossible architectural constructions or reflections. “Escher’s images appear logical at first, but the deeper you look, the more improbable they become. Each print is a puzzle that asks to be solved, but the solution is elusive,” explains Ron Schultz, Atelier 6000 member who contributed to the exhibit catalog. “Escher’s work endures because of its mystery.” Atelier 6000 will welcome classes from local middle and high schools to view the exhibit and learn about Escher’s life and art. ScaleHouse, a growing network of creative collaborators in Central Oregon, was fundamental in organizing the Escher exhibit. Atelier 6000 is a professional printmaking and book arts studio in Bend offering workshops by local and regional artists. Atelier 6000’s Presentation Gallery features monthly exhibits of contemporary prints and art books.

Dawn Emerson, the Artist & Her Studio paintings are comprised of many layers of abstract elements and are quite complex in their simplicity. The genius is in knowing when to stop, to let the images say just enough to create a sense of mystery and excitement. This past year, Emerson’s husband, Bruce, completed a brand new studio for her at their home in Central Oregon. This wonderful light-filled space is the fulfillment of a dream and the perfect space to create beautiful art. In preparation for her show at Mockingbird Gallery, gallery owner Jim Peterson and staff were invited out to see the new studio. This is how Dawn describes her beautiful new space: “The 1,800 square foot studio took six years for Bruce to build from scratch. He designed it and built it as a ‘bucket list’ project but, it is a true gift of love. The first thing people do when they walk in is look at me and remind me how incredibly spoiled I am. Yes, I know. Having the studio makes it possible for me to have

ockingbird Gallery is delighted to present a one-person show for Dawn Emerson opening Friday, April 4, 5-9pm for the spring Art Hop and First Friday Art Walk. Emerson was raised and educated in Marblehead, Massachusetts. After moving to Central Oregon in 1992, she began taking work- July by Dawn Emerson shops from pastel artists Harley Brown and Albert Handell. Up to this point, she had worked almost entirely with ink, charcoal and pencil. Discovering pastels and the application of color opened a whole new world of art expression. Emerson is an exciting artist known for the strong composition and bold color of her pastel paintings that convey energy, vitality and movement. Whether the subject is figurative, animal or landscape, her colorful works all share a distinctive attitude, strength and presence. Never content to stick with proven techniques, she is constantly exploring new applications and methods of expression in her art. In recent years, she has experimented with mixed media, meaning that a variety of mediums are used to create a painting. Some

We call it First Light Studio because the view that greets our eyes each day is the early light on the rocks of Smith Rock State Park. It’s a view definitely worth getting up for!” Emerson is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with others, and with her new studio in place, she has the room and space to give workshops and private instruction at her home. She has 25 years of experience teaching drawing and painting and currently teaches foundational drawing as a part-time instructor at Central Oregon Community College in Bend.

Pottery Workshop with Inayoshi Osamu Recently a few potters spent two days with Inayoshi Osamu, a potter visiting from Toyohashi, Japan. Filled with a playful sense of humor and an amazing talent, Inayoshi demonstrated his unique method of creating pottery. Unlike most potters who hand build using either the coil technique or pinch pots, Inayoshi developed a way to work with solid shapes of clay which allow him to use natural objects to impress patterns without deforming the shape of the piece. - see more at

Hope Infused with Color & Light at the Heart of Cindy Briggs’ Art by RENEE PATRICK, Cascade A&E Editor


he Signature artwork for the Deschutes Children’s Foundation’s (DCF) Art & Wine Auction on May 3, Cindy Brigg’s Terrazza in Toscana, ties together multiple ideas of home. Home is what the artist feels at her retreat in Tuscany, Italy, where a landscape of rolling hills and vineyards brings to mind her local view of the expansive Cascade Mountains, and home is at the core of the Deschutes Children’s Foundation’s annual fundraiser as it enables the organization to provide a home for 28 nonprofit partners around the high desert. “Cindy was so willing to support us, I have admired her work and knew she would be able to create something special,” commented DCF’s Development Director Amy Ward. The artist has supported the Foundation’s mission with both artwork and monetary donations since 2002 and holds the mission close to her heart. “The Deschutes Children’s Foundation from the very beginning has been at the top of my list for what they do for the community, I personally know children that have benefited,” Briggs explained. “I have an amazing view of the Cascades from my home in Bend. I feel peace and serenity here, and I also felt at home in Tuscany…Italy continues to beckon me – the luminescent light, old world architecture, welcoming locals and beautiful landscapes are an artist’s dream,” she shared. Briggs brings a lifetime of artistic influence to her work and has created a career surrounding her passion in which travel creates the framework for much of her art. She enjoys painting alla prima (in one sitting) and take advantage of the spontaneity that watercolor invites. “My painting method is a bit serendipitous – mixing, mingling and manipulating the colors for subtle nuances and unexpected color transitions, then add calligraphy and finesse

My Pienza Balcony

When I was a child I lived in a small town in Northeastern Colorado near the South Platte River. One year the river flooded the town and I remember that it was terrifying to me. I decided then, that someday I wanted to live on a hill where it would be safe. As an adult, I've always lived on a hill – in California, Washington and here in Bend. It represents a safe place, a place of enduring refuge, and a place where you have a perspective of the world and can see what’s coming. That is a big part of why I feel so at home in Pienza, Italy on the hill and it connects with my home on Awbrey Butte. The Deschutes Children’s Foundation serves children and families in this community providing support so they can be safe, endure, grow and dream - my painting shares that hopeful point of view. - Cindy Briggs

the edges. After I’ve started a painting I may paint non-stop into the night completely unaware of the time,” Briggs explained. “Watercolor inspires my soul – like life – the more I make the most of its unpredictable qualities the more interesting it becomes. With each painting my goal is to reverently capture the essence of my subject and infuse it with dynamic color and light.” A recent cancer survivor, Briggs has embraced the simple joy of painting and the peace it has brought into her life. “Now that I’m a survivor it’s a part of who I am, and I want people to know that there is hope…The painting Terrazza in Toscana has a sense of hope for me.” The turmoil of the disease has led her to follow her heart and to paint what she truly cares about: the time that she has and the value of life. “We feel blessed to be able to honor Cindy as the Signature Artist,” said Kim McNamer, DCF executive director. “She has been extremely generous beyond the Signature piece, offering guidance and other help. The generosity of the artists continues to be the key to the success of the auction.”

Art & Wine Auction Supports Children & Families in Deschutes County


he Deschutes Children’s Foundation’s (DCF) annual event, taking place at the Riverhouse Convention Center on May 3, will feature works of art, limited release wine and a unique way to support children and families in the high desert. The funds raised from the auction will directly support the Foundation in providing rent-free space for their partners on four campuses throughout Bend, La Pine and Redmond. “Even the smallest donation contributes towards saving 28 nonprofit partners over $650,000 a year,” Ward explained. The programs the DCF supports ranges from the Kids Center, Head Start and Family Access Center to the Youth Choir of Central Oregon and Saving Grace. A focus for the Foundation this year is to highlight their partnerships and collaborations, not only with their partner nonprofits, but with other organizations in the community. “One of our collaborations has been working with the Heart of Oregon Corps and their YouthBuild Program,” said McNamer. “Together with Webfoot painting they painted the Becky Johnson Community Center; we also have a continuing partnership with the Redmond Proficiency Academy and Head Start. Together they are doing our centerpieces for the auction and helping us while they help each other. It’s a great thing to watch.”

Notre Dame

Another collaboration auction goers will notice is with the Bend High School Culinary Program. Students will provide 40 different desserts for the Dessert Dash, and be on hand in chef coats to talk about their creations. “Our partners are all unique in their missions and are doing amazing work. When you go beyond the walls it’s exciting to develop collaborations with the community, and we want to see more of that happen,” McNamer said. In addition to the live auction items, a silent auction will feature a wide variety of art and unique offerings. “We’ve got some amazing artists in [both of the] auctions, and we started last year to really focus on some smaller pieces of art that are high quality, but on the beginning value side for folks,” McNamer explained. “We want to engage more people in our event, like the next generation in Bend. For those folks who are just starting out we want to be able to offer art and packages for [all price ranges]. “We are hoping for a sell out crowd again; our auction is half of our fundraising budget, and it still continues to be the keystone of our fundraising programs,” McNamer concluded.

After attending art classes at Otis Art Institute, Traveller graduated from Cal Poly with a degree in microbiology and animal science. An accomplished equestrian, she also competed in the Olympic 3-Day event selections trials for 3-Day Eventing and coached dressage, hunters and show jumping. After moving to Central Oregon, Traveller returned to her art work and pursued her love of sketching, painting and sculpting. Captivated by form and texture she works bronze and ceramic to produce beguiling sculptures that express the character she sees in each individual creature. An avid naturalist, Traveller enjoys traveling throughout the Northwest and Southwest gathering ideas for her art from places visited and wildlife observed as well as charismatic domestic animals. Working mainly in oil and inspired by the all of the outdoor activities offered in and around Traveller, Joren is currently working on a series of sports and nature paintings as well as her animal portraits. Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing 550 NW Franklin Ave. Celebrates First Friday with digital art by Dorothy Freudenberg. The exhibition continues through April 25. Freudenberg creates digital media images and the rapid change and growth in digital technology quickly alters and expands her capability to produce her art. This constant experimentation with new technique as well as subject matter Poppy Meditation by Dorothy Freudenberg also morphs the artist’s aesthetic. Her imagery arises from deconstructing, reshaping, recolorizing and recombining digital photos and layering the constructions into digital collages. The work reveals Western and Eastern influences in that the artist creates both active space with profuse objects and intense color as well as still, barren space with minimal subject matter. As an artist creating outside the confines of the traditional, the photography of her early career blended with a painter’s eye and new technology, evolving her distinctive body of work. This exhibition reviews that work over several years, and illustrates Freudenberg’s journey as it opens our eyes to a few of the myriad possibilities of the always-emerging technical world.

I paint impressionistically with ink and oil pastel, using strong composition, clear focus and bold colors to convey the sense of movement I am after.” The subjects of her mixed media paintings – July by Dawn Emerson horses, donkeys, ravens, sheep and landscapes – evoke a strong and animated presence.

Red Chair Gallery 103 NW Oregon Ave., 541-306-3176, Red Chair has invited area high school art students to be juried into the gallery and sell their art work as featured artists for April. This is the third year the gallery has worked with the high schools, hence the title of the exhibit Emerging Artists 3. High schools represented in the gallery Artwork by Leah Galloway will be Mountain View, Bend High and Sisters High School. The owners of Red Chair Gallery visited each of the high schools to jury in the work. All the submitted art work was outstanding and it was unfortunate that they were not able to take every piece that was offered. The artists who are accepted in the gallery will be asked to sign a 30 day membership commitment that places them under the same sale guidelines that the regular members of the gallery are held to, as part of an effort to give the students a “real world” art gallery sales experience. The teachers at each high school have all been critical components in putting this program together. They have pre-screened and gathered the art works and also created the enthusiasm among the students. Many of the same students that were involved in the past are Painting by Siriah Moss represented in this year’s show. The buzz from last year’s show and the sales from it have helped to not only generate excitement but increased the quality of work presented. New this year will be the People’s Choice Award. The first place winner will have the opportunity to display their piece for an additional month at the gallery and prizes include gift certificates from Blick Art Supplies and Atelier 6000. Voting will take place on April 4, First Friday, through April 6.

he Family Resource Center is bringing back its popular fine photography event, Vision for Families – A Fine Photography Silent Auction and Soiree. The 20 year old local nonprofit serves the tri-county area with parenting education classes and workshops as well as informational resources for families. Family Resource Center will be holding the event at The Riverhouse on Friday May 9 at 5:30-8:30pm. This event has a long history but had been tabled when the Central Oregon economy cooled. As long time board member and photographer Loren Irving explained, “We were getting more and more questions and interest from members of the community asking if the event would ever return, and so we are excited to announce that the time is right to bring the Vision for Families back. It seems like the community has spoken and we are eager to respond.” Tickets for the event are $35 per person or $65 per couple which includes admission to the Soiree, a drink ticket with heavy appetizers and a no-host bar. “We are looking forward to seeing some old friends and supporters as well as many new faces,” longtime board member Brad Bailey said. “We are also excited to introduce our new Executive Director Chuck Keers.

Artists’ Gallery Sunriver Celebrates Spring


veryone is happy that Spring is around the corner! The artists at the gallery in Sunriver are certainly no exception, and they would like to celebrate with you at the Second Saturday reception on April 12. The celebration starts at 4pm when refreshments are set out for all attendees to enjoy. While enjoying the party feast, you can catch up with the latest art produced by some of the gallery’s most popular artists. Featured artists are Marjorie Cossairt, Stella Rose Powell, Chuck Chamberlain and Glenn Burleigh. You will especially be delighted by new offerings from Marjorie Cossairt, watercolor painter. Cossairt has a very loyal following. Most of her collectors have multiple pieces because her unique and cohesive style makes for beautiful groupings on a single wall. One collector felt that the three paintings the he purchased worked so well together that it was “like looking out the window into the forest.” Cossairt’s use of color never fails to radiate from the surface of her paintings. She is very adept at placing complementary colors next to each other to create energy. One of several new pieces featured this month, a macro view of a butterfly, is going to be very popular. Another very popular artist at the gallery is Stella Rose Powell, jewelry artist. Because Powell’s pieces are so unique and constantly include new ideas and techniques, displaying her work at the gallery is like the gift of having new artists all of the time. One of her featured pieces this month is a beautiful metal bracelet adorned with delicate metal pieces and Oregon Sun stone. Almost every month Powell’s pieces change and evolve into something even more enticing to those of us that like to add jewelry to our collection. Once again the gallery is proud to feature the paintings of Chuck Chamberlain. This month’s featured painting is a captivating look at a picturesque barn. Chamberlain has the ability to take what is more typically a masculine subject, but pres-

Solvent in Sunriver Cameron Kaseberg Joins Artists’ Gallery Sunriver

resh off his recent appearance on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s (OPB) Oregon Art Beat, Central Oregon artist Cameron Kaseberg has joined the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver. The solvent transfer process was brought to prominence in the 1950s by Robert Rauschenberg, but has since been relatively obscure. Kaseberg has been exploring, playing with and redefining the process since his college days. The work involves combining his original photographs and graphics (he is also a graphic designer) with dissolved magazine inks,


ent it in the most delicate manner. His use of color and painting technique lend the paintings an “other worldliness.” While Chamberlain really has a talent for realism and detail, his paintings are appealing because of the atmosphere that he creates with each scene. The final featured artist for this month is furniture maker and wood sculptor, Glenn Burleigh. Burleigh has really captured the essence of Spring with his featured piece, Let’s Dance. The free standing abstract Wood sculpture by Glenn Burleigh sculpture, carved from Western Juniper, is almost alive with energy. Burleigh’s carving technique makes great use of the grain of the wood to convey this energy. It is almost as if two of Mother Nature’s own are dancing. 57100 Beaver Dr., 541-593-2127 or 541-593-8274,| April 2014

watercolor pigments and other media through an image transfers process using solvents. Over the course of the last nine years, Kaseberg has been making a name for himself through Pacific North West gallery exhibits, nationally recognized art festivals throughout the western United States, as well as giving back to the community through service with Art in the High Desert, the Smith Rock Paint Out and the Redmond Commission for Art in Public Places.

Mountain Meadow Quilters Honor The Late Judy Hopkins The Big Book of Patchwork, 50 Fabulous Quilts from Judy Hopkins (Martingale), is one of her three bestselling titles (with combined sales of over 550,000 copies). In recognition of Hopkins and her passion for quilting plus the honorary title of Queen of Quilting Blocks, Martingale created The Best of Judy Hopkins: 365 Quilt-Block Patterns Perpetual Calendar. Her best known work, the three volume Around the Block series, provided the 366 (including leap year) designs and cutting instructions for blocks featured in the calendar. In addition to the award-winning Liberty quilt and others completed by Hopkins and generously loaned by her family, some 18 additional, unfinished quilts from the artist’s studio, gifted to Sarah Kaufman and thereafter to Mountain Meadows Quilters, appear in the exhibition. Fondly titled UFOs, (Unfinished Objects), these quilts, in various states of completion (some directions for a quilt, fabrics quilt ready, some blocks, some partially made quilts), were given to 13 guild members to finish in their own individual style and interpretation. Most of these quilts will be offered for sale, with proceeds to Mountain Meadow Quilters for charity quilt endeavors and other MMQ projects.

Hop N Bean Taphouse Pub Sprucing Up Sisters by Jeff Spry, Cascade A&E Feature Writer


Photo by Jeff Spry

ith Suttle Lake Lodge’s Boathouse Restaurant underwater, the Ski Inn struck by a tree and short-term hopes of a Cibelli’s Pizza or Dairy Queen dashed, eating choices in Sisters are getting mighty thin. But Hop N Bean taphouse pub is fixin’ to change that. Just nine months old, Hop N Bean is going through growing pains going into the new year, with plans to stretch into new territory with an expanded Hop N Bean Pizza Kitchen serving up Italian items for Sisters Country folks. What began as a beer growler station coffee shop with pizza and breakfast burritos is now blossoming into a sit-down, Italian-style cafe this coming spring. To accomplish this task, owners Mandy Strasser and Phil Haugen plan to cut a hole in the adjoining wall and push into the spot recently vacated by Sunbuster Video. “It will still be our signature hand-crafted dishes with all fresh ingredients but with more home-cooked comfort food,” said Strasser. “We want to put in a wood-fired pizza oven and a stove with a grill to allow us to make homemade sauces and pastas and more Italian-style food than just the pizza. The current ovens we have don’t allow us to do that. It’ll add another 800 square feet to the business and greatly increase the total capacity.”

Owners Mandy Strasser & Phil Haugen

Strasser is launched a Kickstarter campaign, an online crowdfunding source for the expansion of the business, with a goal of raising an additional $40,000 to complete the project. “Backers will be eligible for a variety of tiered rewards and merchandise starting at $5 all the way up to $5,000 pledges to redeem for everything from hats and pint glasses, to pizza creation opportunities and table-naming rights for their family.” The expansion will allow for more inside accommodations and an outside seating patio on the side-lawn, allowing them to transform the enterprise into a sit-down restaurant with tableside service. “We’re also looking to expand our menu to include salad selections, desserts and more wines,” Strasser explained. “With the outdoor seating alone we’ll be able to put in twelve or more tables. We’d like to be open early June if we get our Kickstarter funding and will be able to start construction by the end of April.” Strasser and Haugen are hoping people will check out their Kickstarter site and cash in on some of the great rewards offered and help back the positive project. “We want to thank the whole community for being so supportive of us in opening a new place and helping us grow so fast.” 523 E Highway 20,, 541-719-1295.

Welcome to The Sisters Country Sisters Coffee Company Travels to Obtain Fine Coffee by JEFF SPRY, Cascade A&E Feature Writer


Jesse Durham and Jack Escobar

“Over the past year and half, we’ve had the wonderful opportunity to come into contact and befriend some coffee farm owners from Fredonia, in the region of Antioquia, Colombia,” Durham said. “Jack and Maria Cristina Escobar, an older couple, began to frequent our Portland Pearl Café in 2012, and eventually became good friends with my brother Jared, who worked the coffee bar.” In March 2013, the Escobars invited the Durhams down to their farm in Colombia, where they lived six months out of the year. They had been selling their coffee on the domestic market in Colombia, but had recently acquired their full export license, and were very enthusiastic to export their coffees to the United States.   “My brother and I giddily accepted the opportunity. I had been to Colombia once before, when I was 20, and have always been very eager to establish a direct trade relationship in Colombia.”

impetus of their farms is hinged on producing quality coffees.” The result is a fine, medium-bodied roast with fruity, watermelon aromas and caramel flavors leading to a clean pronounced finish.

omething new is brewing at Sisters Coffee Company, a distinct medium body “Campo Amor” Colombian coffee, hand-selected from the green mountains of South America by the owners themselves. Director of Operations Jesse Durham detailed the journey to obtain this fine coffee and its savory farm-to-cup quest.

“We had a very memorable, adventurous trip. After our return we were able to work out a price for the coffee that works for them and works for Sisters Coffee, and we were able to purchase our favorite coffees that we tasted on that trip, and are now offering them on our shelves as of this past fall. This relationship has been a huge milestone in our green bean buying program and it’s one that we hope to cultivate and nurture for years to come.” 237 W Hood Ave. in Sisters.

Campo Amor coffee is a fine, medium-bodied roast with fruity, watermelon aromas and caramel flavors leading to a clean pronounced finish.

Upon their arrival to Medellin, Jack and Maria picked them up in their ranch truck and they traveled two hours to Fredonia, where the Escobar clan owns five farms in the area. “Their house is situated on the side of a steep mountain at 4,500 feet above sea level. The view of Colombian mountain ranges looking to the south is endless. We were in the heart of one of the most prolific coffee producing countries in the world. Over the course of a week we were able to cup (taste) a variety of coffees they were growing on their well-organized Oromolido Farms. Jack and Maria employ a fulltime agronomist along with a fulltime Q Grader (professional coffee cupper). The entire

The educational concert utilizes the model of the family to help students understand how a string quartet functions and thrives. Turtle Island draws comparisons between the interactions of the quartet and the audience’s families, giving children a personal reference point that greatly helps them to gain a simple but profound understanding of the complete dynamics that drive musical groups.

And on May 17, experience The Lisa Dae Trio featuring guitarist Robert Lee and the refined jazz vocal stylings of Lisa Dae. “Great jazz and fine wine and beer in an intimate Lori Fletcher setting is an experience that bridges European and American cultures,” says Melanie Betti, owner. “With the lineup of top artists booked for every third Saturday, I hope to bring a new jazz exposure to Bend where artists and music lovers help support a diverse and thriving downtown culture.” The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar is a wonderful slice of Europe in downtown Bend. Established in 2006, the shop was created to offer customers the try before you buy concept. Unlike most U.S. wine bars, The Wine Shop and Beer Tasting Bar embraces the Italian way of life with wine and beer; informal, unpretentious and unintimidating.  541-389-2884, 55 NW Minnesota Avenue.  Download the CascadeAE App | April 2014

New Perspective for April by Eileen Lock

his very busy month starts right out with surprises on the 2nd. Listen to your intuition as it guides you through the necessary decisions. An opening of the heart on the 5th will be followed by a desire to ask for what you want. Find the balance between taking care of you and doing for others on the 8th and make sure you put yourself first. You need to be healthy and happy in order to be the best you. Let go of old ideas on the 11th and welcome the messages that come to your heart. Give yourself some personal space during the next few days so that you can look at your situation objectively. Conversations on the 14th are unexpected and could challenge you to let go and have faith. Relationships ask for attention during the Full Moon on the 15th. Be mindful of your reactions over the next two days and pay attention to your own advice. Lead with your heart on the 17th and you will discover opportunities are plentiful. Enjoy what you are learning and let it help you manifest what you want. Pivotal changes are occurring from the 20th through the 23rd. A flexible approach will be helpful as these changes are unexpected. Relationships need you to be open minded about new directions so have faith as situations change. Agreements made on the 24th will help you feel more stable. Ask for what you need on the 25th and be receptive to getting what you ask for. The New Moon on the 28th invites you to trust that there is enough of whatever you will need. Ask for what you want on the 29th and you could be pleasantly surprised with how quickly it manifests. Share your joy with those around you on the last day of the month and be grateful that you are able to do so. Love and Light Always, Eileen Lock, Clairvoyant Astrologer, 541-389-1159,,
