Beyond the Rim by Brad Goldpaint
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne ? For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne, we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne. And surely you’ll buy your pint cup! and surely I’ll buy mine! And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne. We two have run about the slopes, and picked the daisies fine; But we’ve wandered many a weary foot, since auld lang syne. We two have paddled in the stream, from morning sun till dine; But seas between us broad have roared since auld lang syne. And there’s a hand my trusty friend! And give us a hand o’ thine! And we’ll take a right good-will draught, for auld lang syne.
otes From the Publisher Pamela Hulse Andrews
Shall Old Acquaintance Be Forgot?
f you don’t have a chance to observe the start of the new year with Auld Lang Syne on New Year’s eve, you’re still likely to hear it at graduations, funerals or other farewell and memorable celebrations. It’s a longing toast that can either lift your spirits as you remember friends and occasions gone by or bring tears to your eyes knowing you may never see them again. The historic Scots’ poem was written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. Most of us know the lyrics and the tune by heart and have treasured its captivating meaning numerous times over the years. The title may be translated into English literally meaning ‘old long since’ or loosely translated as ‘for the sake of old time.’ It brings to mind friends…real friends who show up when the rest of the world is missing. Friends we’ve spent time with building long lasting memories: fishing stories, youthful adventures, love affairs and challenging moments made less so by loyal friends. It poses a rhetorical question as to whether it is okay to forget old times or should you always and forever more be grateful for longstanding friendships? I prefer the latter response, adding that even new friendships are to be cherished. So as we begin the New Year, from my heart to yours, may you capture the sentiment of this verse and treasure it for ever more.

Oregon Cultural Trust Launches Online Activity Guide
Looking for something to do near your home or your Oregon travel destination? Curious about arts, heritage and humanities activities around the state? Interested in supporting worthy cultural causes? The Oregon Cultural Trust’s recently-launched digital field guide (www.oregonculturefieldguide.org) unveiled its statewide activity list, based on a public nomination process conducted earlier this fall. Now site visitors can search more
than 70 listings by activity type (arts, heritage, humanities, multi-disciplinary), by county or by supporting nonprofit. Each activity has its own page and description, where users are encouraged to add comments. Heritagerelated entries include everything from a visit to Boston Mills, the oldest water mill in Oregon (Linn County), to a hike in the historic Columbia River Gorge (Multnomah County), to a peek at Kam Wah Chung, a Chinese herbal medicine store (Grant County) that is preserved as it was left in the 1950s.

Based on the recommendation of Robert Dickey, the Gannett Foundation granted Cascade School of Music $12,000 for tuition assistance to low income youth students, merit based scholarships and the school’s Kids for Kids outreach program. The school was also awarded grants to support hiring a part-time de velopment director. These funds included $9,000 from the Maybelle Supporting musical education Clark MacDonald Fund and $11,000 from the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) via the Todd and Lorri Taylor Fund and Roy and Dianne Marvin Fund.

for the 2012 USA Best Book Awards in the category of Best Non-Fiction.

This fast-paced narrative quickly pulls the reader into a Northwest setting and the time period surrounding World War II. Steber is an engaging western personality with more than thirty titles under his belt and over a million books in print. He has won numerous national and international awards and is the only Oregon author to have won the prestigious Western Writers of America Spur Award - Best Western Novel. He is a keen observer of the changing American West and he articulates these changes in prose that are boldly descriptive, invigorating and creative.

A New Year & New Beginnings
f you are reading this, we survived the end of times and are facing another year filled with art, music, literature, dance and all the creative endeavors that make Central Oregon an amazing place to live. Gracing our cover this month is the image Beyond the Rim from astrophotographer Brad Goldpaint with his incredible view of the night sky and shooting star over a wintery Crater Lake. Goldpaint’s talent and patience lends to capture a scene only the hardiest of winter star-gazers is lucky enough to see. At the start of yet another cycle of time and season, growth and change, the expanse of night sky proves to remind us of our part to play in the wider narrative of life while assuring us that “this too shall pass.” Among the wintery landscapes and unique viewpoints of the featured photographers this issue, all of our submissions this year captured a sense of Central Oregon spirit. View the 24 photographs on pages 14-18; many are professional photographers with other work available around the area, so take a moment, visit their websites or stop in their next exhibition, the caliber of work is truly impressive. We are excited for the year to come, especially for the launch of our Cascade A&E App. Look for more details in the months to come on how mobile users will be able to navigate through First Friday ArtWalk, access all exhibitions throughout Central Oregon and tap into our extensive event calendar while on the go.

ArtsEdSearch - Arts Education Research Connects & Empowers our Potential by REBECCA ANN S. KIRK, Community Arts Educator & Arts Integration Consultant
n The Workhouse at the Old Ironworks I watched a professional artist building a pattern for a hat. Two-dimensional shapes cut out of brown paper were being transferred to fabric. The first hat she built didn’t fit properly because the dimensions were off. Quietly watching her work, I realized she was using math: proportion, fractions and geometry, as well as basic problem solving, trial and error, visioning, imagination and creativity. Bend prides itself in supporting the arts as part of a vibrant local economy. Still a gap exists—as it does in many U.S. cities—separating artists and their art from “everyone else” with labels like: elite, expensive, avant-garde, abstract, decorative and creative. Cultural assumptions like these are perhaps one of the reasons why art is perceived as a hobby, elective and a product rather than a learning process for students of all ages and a means-to-an-end that can inherently teach many valuable skills. In fact, decades of research show that quality arts learning can heighten engagement and develop critical thinking, communication, persistence and collaboration (to name a few)—all essential to a person’s growth and development as a successful learner, creative problem solver and productive citizen. The arts also build connections between people, institutions and neighborhoods to foster vibrant interconnected communities. The newest tool to help community members champion the arts for is

BEAT brings Annie to Bend What does it take to put on a BEAT production?

the arts. We have the greatest media support in the world. They are so committed to the arts, it is off the charts.” BEAT is now working in concert with COCC and its theatre/drama club to bring those students and staffers into the BEAT family. It has been a natural progression for BEAT, a seven-year old non-profit. For example, Annie’s musical director Jimena Shepherd, a phenomenal singer and teacher, attends COCC. She also starred in BEAT’s first production And a Child Shall Lead in 2006 and will be directing the next BEAT workshop production The Pirates of Penzance at the Pinckney this spring. The arc and reach of BEAT is a phenomenon that could expand beyond Central Oregon. Bruce Hinchliffe, a BEAT advisory board member, knows about such possibilities. Hinchliffe was one of the founders of The Tower Theatre Foundation. Before becoming chair of the foundation’s board he served as pro bono consultant for the successful campaign that led to the Tower’s renovation as a performing arts center. Along with partner Eli Ashley he now consults nonprofits in governance, strategic and financial planning and fundraising. Hinchliffe believes, “BEAT isn’t just about providing outstanding youth theatre, as beneficial as that is to the quality of cultural life in Central Oregon. It is also a significant educational and social asset. Over 700 of our youth have expanded their creative talents while imparting life enhancing social and presenting skills. “For some, it has turned their lives around and provided others with a vocation. It’s filling a cultural void for budget strapped schools and, at the same time has worked with the schools to have 20,000 of their students attend BEAT performances at a fraction of the ticket cost for the general public. How can BEAT share their knowledge, experience and proven methodologies with communities in the Pacific Northwest? That is the question. We might call it BEAT Repeat. This is certainly something to seriously consider as we develop our vision for BEAT’s next five years.” Tickets at www.beattickets.org ,Adults $15, Students $10, 541-419-5558. Photos courtesy of BEAT
h e Sun Will Come Out…. Tomorrow is a song known to people around the world. And now Central Oregonians can enjoy a live production of Annie brought to life by BEAT (Bend Experimental Art Theater) for two weeks this January. The Great Depression is the setting for Annie, her orphan cohorts, millionaire Oliver Warbucks, ditzy Lily St. Regis and a whole cast of characters. This Annie Jr. version is slightly shorter than the original, and completely child friendly, while keeping all its original magic. Annie won winner of the 1977 Best Musical Tony Award and is currently back on Broadway. Annie Jr. will play at the state-of-the-art Bend High School Auditorium January 17 -20. The following week, January 25 -27, the show moves to COCC’s Pinckney Center for the Performing Arts. “For those unfamiliar with COCC’s Pinckney theater, you are in for a treat. The acoustics and comfort are wonderful. Many operas BEAT performers rehearse for Annie were performed in this theater where every seat is a great seat,” said Mary Kilpatrick, director and choreographer of Annie, and co-founder and artistic director of BEAT. BEAT productions have a unique ten week process. The actors work two to three hours a day (depending on the particular play), four days a week at the BEAT Studio. In Annie, 32 children are in the cast. The 33rd BEAT production, Colleen Quinn is featured as the NYC girl (Star to Be), as well as one of Warbuck’s maids and a Healy girl. She described her experience, “We have an awesome cast and terrific stage crew. Being in the show for me is showing the audience, my fellow actors and myself that I am unique. I love my cast and crew, and think of them as my family. Each rehearsal begins with warm-ups, stretching and singing. Our director and choreographer Mary Kilpatrick takes one group to rehearse a scene and dance number. Our musical director, Jimena Shepherd works with another group on a song. After that we come together and work the show piece by piece.” Parents of BEAT actors take an active role as well. They work on everything from sets to costuming to ushering, enrolling sponsors and ticket sales. Most importantly, their emotional and practical support for the young actors, who have such a passion for performing, is inspirational. Many others who are not parents make BEAT what it is. According to Howard Schor, co-founder of BEAT, “Our crew is filled with lovers of
producer, casts the characters, handles publicity and is present at every rehearsal and in-state show. “It’s a hard job, every day there is a fire to put out, but I get myself on the radio, in the paper and I am fortunate that my daughter is in school full time and I have the energy to do it all.” Daniel bases her writing schedule off the theater season; theaters pick the production schedule almost a year in advance, so as soon as her current production is finished, the writing begins again. Daniel explains, “I’m a lazy writer and work better under deadline, so I give myself a deadline. Some days I make five pages, others 20-40 and it comes pouring out of me. I wrote Couple Dating in two weeks, and took two months to polish it.” Daniel is grateful for the support her family and particularly 2nd Street Theater Owner Maralyn Thoma. “Maralyn is a mentor of mine… she went to Klamath Falls to see Couple Dating and brought it to Bend. She has allowed me to use the theater as my personal sand box!” This is Daniel’s fourth play to be produced at 2nd Street Theater. The others were Couple Dating (2010), Love, Laughter and Lucci and Gina Galdi and Guest. Couple Dating opens on January 18. www.2ndstreettheater.com, 541-3129626. www.cricketdaniel.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. Photo courtesy of Cricket Daniel
reprisal of the popular and controversial comedy called Couple Dating, by local playwright Cricket Daniel, returns to 2nd Street Theater this month. All but one member of the original cast are returning, along with the original director, Susan Benson. A regular on the stage until her relatively recent foray into writing, Daniel has always been attracted to the energy, passion and creativity found surrounding life in the theater world. “I stumbled into writing in college. I think in my heart I always knew I was a writer but I was such a fame whore, I wanted to be onstage and in the lights,” said Daniel. Moving to Bend in 1995 and becoming a parent shifted her focus away from the demands of a life on stage, but it was a trip to 2nd Street Theater to see Michael Slade’s play, Garden Politics, that directed her energies towards playwriting. Slade was in the audience that night, and for the first time, Daniel found herself watching the playwright instead of the play. “It was my ah ha moment, I wanted to be that guy. It was clear how much he was enjoying watching actors reciting his lines.” The next day she sat down on her couch, pondered the saying, “write what you know,” and began Couple Dating, loosely based on her experiences with marriage. Daniel’s work on a production does not stop at the script; she is the
Casting Call for O. Henry… A Collection of Jookalorum
he holidays are behind us and it is time to begin filling the calendar with new and exciting things to do. The Sunriver Stars Community Theater would like you to consider auditioning for a role in their next play. Many potential actors feel intimidated by the prospect of having to learn lots of lines and attend many rehearsals over a period of weeks. This has been taken into consideration and a play has been chosen with many parts that have as little as three lines and no more than 85. Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at SHARC from 6-9pm. Should you be cast in one of the stories that make
up the play, you will only have to attend practice on the day your show rehearses until the last two weeks when it is all put together. There are lots of parts for character actors to bring their special magic to the stage. Parts include grizzled old cowboy prospectors having roughly 20 lines. There are roles for a few ‘pretty young things’ with approximately 15 lines. Several prim and proper ladies are needed to take on the roles of late 1800’s high society as well as a doctor (four lines), starving artists (20 lines) and an ageing hillbilly couple waiting to ‘ git a deevorce’ from the Justice of the Peace (all around 15 lines). The story is held together by storytellers (think librarians or professors) with about 45 lines each and the longest story in the show requires a millionaire, his chauffeur and a woman with aspirations with approximately 75 lines each. Auditions will be held February 7, 6-9pm at SHARC. The show will be cast that evening and
all actors will return the following evening for the first read-through on February 8. Then the actors will not meet again until March 26 and 27 to begin blocking. This allows the cast to memorize their lines before they even step onto the stage. Practices will continue through April and the show will come together and be presented on the weekend of April 26-28. The Saturday evening show will be presented as a dinner theater. Period dress and furniture will be needed for this show, so please let us know if you can share anything that would enhance a late 1890’s production on the stage. You may get a copy of the cast list and script by emailing the director at email@example.com.

Recognizing Local Photographers Gary Calicott
Charlie Baughman Baughman is a nature photographer from Bend, and many of his photos are made while flying a hang glider.

Amy Castaño Photographer/artist/adventure seeker based in Bend, Castaño is always searching for a unique viewpoint, a different angle, something interesting in something ordinary, the perfect radiant light or just something beautiful. . . finding art in everything. Wielding the tools of the digital darkroom, bringing captured images to life, she often blurs the line between photograph and painting. Castaño is typically drawn to scenes one would find in a city: industry, architecture, telephone wires, bridges or lines and shapes colliding into one another, but not Santiam by Amy Castaño without having a great appreciation for negative space. . . lots of it. Living amongst the mountains of Central Oregon has led to an exploration of the more natural world as well. email@example.com.

My love of photography blossomed in my teens, and has morphed and evolved over the last 25 years into a full career spanning from commissioned work to commercial endeavors. My education has been diverse and unconventional to say the least. Thus far, it has ranged from total immersion in Tibetan language and culture in a nunnery in Nepal to studying photography with Ansel Adams’s protégé Howard Huff. After I married and began a family of my own, my photographic eye shifted from the exotic locales of my earlier work to intimate portraiture of women in their most private moments. As my focus continued to weave around women and all the roles they play in the world, my exploration of technique began to incorporate not only traditional, painterly media, but also all of the toys and tools of the digital and electronic realms. My current focus has been comprised of a series of self portraits that are shot in antique mirrors. The genesis of this body of work was an offhand suggestion ten years ago from Tina Barney that I should shoot myself. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Avery Frazier My love of photography began many years ago in the “film” era. It got pretty serious in 2008 when I joined the Cascade Camera Club and bought my little Canon G9. Later, I took a couple of classes at COCC and my Stormy Mt. Washington by Avery Frazier photography and equipment progressed from there. I take photos for my own satisfaction and do not plan on trying to make a career of it. However, I do strive to improve with each and every photo I take. Flowers, landscapes and especially waterfalls are my favorite subjects. The members and professionals of the camera club are a never ending source of inspiration and I seem to learn something from every meeting. For me, photography is an ongoing project, a work in progress. OLDFRAZ202@msn.com.
Frederick is an award winning photographer specializing in fine black and white printmaking using traditional and alternative processes such as Platinum/ Palladium. Each process begins when he captures his own vision of the subject matter on his film of choice using a large format (4 X 5) camera - or in many cases - a professional high resolution digital camera. In either case, his skill in capturing the grand range of available light is based on his experience with the Rhime Ice in January by Richard Frederick zone system of exposure, and provides the foundation for the custom work that follows, resulting in fine prints with an extraordinary range of light, detail and tonal range. Each print is handmade from beginning (image capture) to end (printing, mounting and matting) using the finest archival papers and other materials. email@example.com, www.fredfineartphoto.com.

All’s quiet ‘til Spring by Howard Gorman
Howard Gorman From imagination to image - is there more than meets the casual eye? You bet, and that’s how I see photo opportunities. I’m told “Wow, where did you get this?” because I tend to see sights that would usually be overlooked and go for a fascinating or surprising aspect of it. I use a Nikon D5000 and always carry a pointand-shoot camera in case that photogenic moment pops up. I have been married 51 years and met my wife Chris at Purdue University; our son’s family and our four grandchildren also live in Bend. I am very active in music: playing alto saxophone in the Cascade Horizon Band and The Notables Swing Band. I enjoyed two careers…. one as an executive in space programs, the other in forming what became a large gourmet confections brokerage company that covered the southwest. www.GormanConfections. com, 541-639-7734.

Jim Smith Tim O. Sutherland
Before moving to Bend in 2005, I lived in San Diego and the Orange County area of Southern California. After serving in the U.S. Navy Submarine Service, I received a degree in architecture in 1969 from the University of Southern California. My career as an architect, and later a corporate executive, planned-community developer and mobile communications acquisition and build-out specialist spanned over 40 years before my retirement and move to Bend. My interest in photography began early as a hobby and has progressed from my first Kodak Brownie, through various stages of film cameras and darkroom techniques, First Snow Along Mirror Pond by Jim Smith eventually to my current work in the photographic digital world. That hobby also grew into what I am now able to pursue as a very serious and passionate artistic endeavor to capture and teach about the wonderful visual world around us. Photography is not only a media to express myself artistically, but has become a catalyst for me to go to places and see things that would otherwise never have been the case. I am currently based in beautiful Bend. My work is in private personal and commercial collections across the country and has been shown in numerous galleries in California and Oregon. www.jwsmithphotography.com, email@example.com.
If I had to express my philosophy of photography with someone, it would be that I try to express to the viewer in some way what I experienced at the moment of capture. That is, to capture a moment Cattails by Tim O. Sutherland forever in time that may have moved me in some emotional way to want to share that particular experience with others: whether watching a radiant sunset cast long shadows, reveling hidden texture in the Grand Canyon or the complete feeling of awe gazing upon the ruins of an ancient civilization. To see the remains of powerful cultures that thrived perhaps a thousand years ago then vanished in less than a generation is a moving experience. There is so much visual wonder in this world and so much opportunity to capture and share it, that a single lifetime could never be adequate to record but a small fraction of it. The photographic career of Sutherland documents a lifetime of the love of the Southwest. His images display a remarkable quality to capture the nuances of his Mentors and yet define a unique personal style. His newest book, A few of my favorite things, is available at his gallery. A series of fine art posters published by Sutherland is available through the National Park Service book stores and his photographs are on display and owned by The White House, the National Geographic Society, the National Park Service and numerous collections around the world. http://timothyosutherland.com.
Photography melds my love of nature and art. Central Oregon offers a feast for the photographer and as a longtime local wildlife naturalist and interpreter, I love being outside year round. I always have my camera handy to take advantage of all the great photographic opportunities. I have studied art and photography and have continued to enjoy many creative aspects throughout my life. As an active volunteer at the High Desert Museum for over fifteen years, I worked in education and with the interpretation of otters, porcupines, badgers and wildcats as well as leading the Museum Photography Team. I love Central Oregon and all of the outdoor recreational possibilities; I have led hiking classes for COCC and enjoy organizing a woman’s kayak group. My Wildlife Portraits are close-up intimate photographs that show the essence and attitude of each animal. Many of these photographs are currently on display at the Artists’ Gallery –Sunriver. My portfolio includes landscapes, cityscapes Climbing to Ride by Carolyn Waissman and people as well as wildlife photographs. My love of photography continues to expand with this ever changing field. It allows me to express my love of nature and art in my photos. The wonders of the digital age have created possibilities never available in a darkroom. firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been a family photographer in Sunriver since 1990 and have been a hang glider pilot since 1976. I took this photograph of fellow pilots waiting for take off from Pine Mt.

My passion for photography reJim Williams volves around my love for the great
outdoors, sports and architecture…a little bit of everything. Whether it’s lugging my camera and tripod along the banks of the Metolius, hiking along a mountain trail or capturing the action of a bike race or basketball game, I feel my skill is in capturing the essence of whatever it is I’m shooting. I also endeavor to pursue other photographic genres including assorted commercial photography, portrait, fashion and pretty much everything else. I’ve been asked many times what kind of photography I do. I usually pause for Under A Blood Red Sky by Jim Williams a moment and say, “all of it.” I don’t care to be grouped into any particular type of photography because I enjoy it all, and can do it all. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Brad Goldpaint, a Dreamer of Rare Caliber by JEFF SPRY Cascade AE ust ask anyone swept up in his mesmerizing western nightscapes. The Bend artist’s striking astrophotography evokes a potent primal response upon first viewing, something usually reserved for framed masterpieces gracing the hallowed halls of great museums. Goldpaint’s work is magically alive. It breathes and lives within the still, frigid air from whence it was created, atop a lonely ridge or deep wilderness, conjuring up breathtaking nocturnal visions of distant galaxies and constellations lifted straight from the pulp pages of vintage sci-fi novellas. “I fell in love with the night sky once I gave it a chance,” he said. “People today are so disconnected with the stars and that is sad. Because of light pollution from most cities there is no night sky.” For the enthusiastic Goldpaint, anyone can go outside and take a quick picture of the Milky Way or the moon, but to combine it artistically with familiar landmarks like Delicate Arch or Smith Rock is another dimension entirely. “I really try to piece this together with the landscape and bring some heightened level of awareness to people.” Each tamed moment in time is infused with a rare nostalgia and romance, whirled in intense saturated color and aglow in the accelerated mysteries of the cosmos. From the shimmering Aurora Borealis dancing over Sparks Lake, to a spiral of white stars waltzing above Crater Lake, Brad Goldpaint 18 www.CascadeAE.com| January 2013
his art is a sublime marriage of the majesties of Heaven and Earth, perhaps a soothing reflection of our own bright hopes and unfulfilled dreams. “I went to architecture school at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles and I think that first developed my creative juices,” he recalled. “It was very experimental with lots of different design theories taught by some of the greatest instructors. We were also building stages for plays and doing wild designs that aren’t even possible yet.” But it was the unexpected death of his mother in 2009 that shocked him to the core and spun his fractured life into a new orbit. “I surfed every day and worked with stuff I loved about modern architecture and when mom passed away it was a huge life-altering incident. We were very close.” Searching for a sign, Goldpaint was affected by the power and presence of nature while watching the movie, Into the Wild. “There’s a shot where Emile Hirsch comes out into this gorgeous forest with spectacular light through the trees and the screen title read Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and I knew I had to go and do it.” So he moved to Las Vegas to briefly help out his dad and prepare to hike the storied 2600-mile PCT. Goldpaint needed an escape and his father needed out of the house, away from the memories. “I invited him to share in this adventure,” he said. “I knew he wasn’t going to do the whole distance but thought he’d
be fine in the RV. So I quit my job and dove into it. Here’s an L.A. guy with no hiking experience going on this massive trek. I left everything - the surf, friends, family, my apartment. Kinda crazy. “Being out there on the highest mountain peaks under the stars I began to feel closer to my mother and that enabled the healing process. There’s a phrase that nature cures the soul. I believe it.” Goldpaint eventually completed 1,300 miles of the journey, meeting his current girlfriend and backbone of his art, Marcie, somewhere on mile number 50. After many of the trip’s shorter legs, his dad was meeting up with him in the RV and they’d hang out enjoying some quality father-son time under the constellations. His final landing spot in Bend was due to an instant attraction to the Sisters region during the Oregon traverse of the PCT. “I felt immediately at home and remembered it in the back of my mind. Especially following the Three Sisters Peaks and the views along the backside snowfields. I didn’t want to go back to L.A. After being in Nighted Vail the wilderness six months it’s hard to return to the urban jungle.” So he and his sweetheart hiking partner moved to Bend last year without jobs, a big gamble in a slow economy. “For a while I taught photo workshops during the summer and was thankfully brought on at Pinnacle Architecture four months ago.” His art portfolio is growing swiftly, one stunning jewel at a time. “A lot of the panoramic pieces are from the Cascade Range, including the Mount Shasta area and Central Oregon,” he added. “After we got off the PCT we moved in with friends in Mount Shasta to reacclimate back to society. Imagine six months on the trail with nothing but nature and night skies, you grow accustomed to that silence and peace. There’s an amazing energy about Mount Shasta. You walk out of your house and stare right up at the Milky Way. It was there I began formulating how I could meld images of the stars and the mountains, illustrating them as one.” One of Goldpaint’s more stirring photos is of Smith Rock State Park during the planetary conjunction of Jupiter and Venus, aptly titled, Shared Alignment. “This was taken in the middle of winter and includes a dramatic arch of the
Milky Way bending over Smith Rock,” he said. “You get a hint of zodiacal light jetting up from the horizon toward the two planets’ alignment. Redmond also holds some pretty dark skies, especially the state park but sadly, the more Redmond grows, the more light pollution occurs.” Many of these once-in-a-lifetime compositions take careful preparation and forethought, a fact not lost on him. “It takes an incredible amount of planning to get these types of shots, months of scouting, up to a year,” he explained. “That’s if Mother Nature is cooperating and conditions stay just right.” All of Goldpaint’s photos are shot using Nikon digital cameras and then printed on metallic paper which gives them an immeasurable depth and clarity, replicating what you see on the computer screen. For our haunting Beyond the Rim cover image snapped at Crater Lake National Park in April 2012, he endured a four-mile snowshoe odyssey, trudging through deep snow to reach the remote location. “It was a great opportunity to not only capture the Milky Way but also the Lyrid meteor shower,” he said. “This was a brutal learning experience. Your pack weighs a ton, you have your camera, food, clothes, and I started out when the snow was soft. I did two perspectives; the rest can be seen on my site in the time-lapse video, Within Two Worlds, three years in the making and featured on NBC News, Discovery News and Huffington Post.” With his previous work primarily based in fine art photography, shooting star trails, meteor showers or moonlit dreamscapes, Goldpaint’s next mission will be in the video realm, working with motion-control systems and new camera equipment. “My aim is to make lasting impressions with my art, and if the images inspire people to get out and explore the heavens themselves, then I’ve done what I set out to achieve.” At this time, Goldpaint is not associated with any gallery and is soliciting serious inquiries for representation in Central Oregon. His landscape astrophotography workshops, shooting all night at a variety of locations, begin again this year.

Feathers and Fiber Artwork by Kay Pearson & Linda Shelton
t. Charles Medical Center is delighted to present a two-person exhibition by Fiber Artist Kay Pearson and Watercolor Artist Linda Shelton. The exhibition entitled Feathers and Fiber will be held at the Medical Center from January 1 through March 28, 2013. Kay Pearson is a contemporary quilt artist who has shown her work in various quilt venues across the country. Among her several solo exhibitions, Pearson has displayed her fiber art locally at Crave Restaurant, One Street Down as well as Starbuck’s in Redmond. Pearson studied at Bassist Institute where she received a degree in Fine Arts and Interior Design. She was born in Seattle but grew up in Chehalis, Washington and currently resides in Redmond. Both of her grandmothers were quilters, so it is safe to say that threads run in her veins. Linda Shelton grew up on a ranch in South Central Washington. Since youth, she has been intrigued with how to transfer Lucky Henry Penny by Linda Shelton
New Bronze Heron Sculpture in Sisters
isters celebrated the newest addition to its public art collection: the ten foot tall sculpture shows a bronze heron ready to lift off from a basalt column. The sculpture was created by local artist Danae Bennett Miller in honor of Elizabeth Dasch, who passed away in 2009. Dasch was an artist and an original homebuilder at Black Butte Ranch who later moved to Sisters. Dasch’s three grown children donated $25,000 towards the sculpture and traveled from three states to attend the dedication. She enjoyed painting wildflowers, and her children said she brought watercolors on family camping trips to the Metolius River. Dasch, who died at age 97, was one of the artists who participated in Works Progress Administration (WPA) projects at Timberline Lodge. Her contribution was a botanical watercolor of a Mt. Hood lily. Dasch’s mother Julia Hoffman founded the Arts and Crafts Society of Portland, now named the Oregon College of Art and Craft. Additional funds for the sculpture came from Dasch’s friends, the Roundhouse Foundation and The City of Sisters. Miller, a long-time Central Oregon artist, is known for her large bronze sculptures including three in Bend’s public spaces. She created this sculpture from 70 pieces of bronze welded together around a stainless steel skeleton using the lost wax method. Miller is a member of the collective gallery Tumalo Art Co. in Bend’s Old Mill District where she shows her smaller sculptures and prints.

UNSEEN::WORLD can be seen during Bend City Hall business hours of 8am - 5pm, Monday through Friday. The show closes March 29.
Visions of Hope – I See You, pastel
Retired Bend schoolteachers, Bob and Carol Higgins, attended a 1999 conference in Uganda on a trip that rocked their world. Now for 12 years they have worked in Northern Uganda to build Otino Waa, more like a village than an orphanage, with small houses for eight children and local widows serving as housemothers. Presently 260 children live in the village funded entirely from private donations by generous Americans; the children attend primary, secondary and vocational school, gaining a general education and job skills. Among the benefactors are inmates of the Snake River Correctional Institution of northeastern Oregon who, during a prison chapel service, heard the heart-breaking stories of the orphans, some forced into service as child soldiers or with parents lost to AIDS and other tragic circumstances. The inmates proposed to officials that they create works of art to be sold to benefit the children. The art on display at Franklin Crossing is artwork from the Snake River institution. The inmates, some of whom will never be released, say the payback is a sense of purpose they have not felt in years. Thus art helps to heal not only children in Uganda but also serves incarcerated men in Oregon. All sales solely benefit Otino Waa and its children. Noi Thai will serve wine and Thai appetizers and Tom Freedman will lead a group of Latin rhythm musicians. Billye Turner, art consultant, provides additional information at 541-382-9398.

casing new paintings by Eric Jacobsen, a plein air painter, his true inspiration is the amazing beauty that he sees in nature. The whole point of plein air painting is to capture the immediate effects of light while painting outdoors. He takes his oils wherever he goes, setting up on site and working until the painting is finished. “It is important that my paintings convey a certain mood. I find strong compositions in nature, and then I paint the scene accurately while leaving out any extraneous details.” Born and raised in New England, Jacobsen studied fine art at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Connecticut where he received training in the Beaux Arts tradition of drawing and painting from life. He has lived in the Northwest since 1998, and his home is in Glenwood Valley, Washington. In addition to being a gifted painter, Jacobsen conducts painting workshops in the Northwest.

It is a series that mirrors her pastimes in the garden, travels across the country and treasured relationships. “I thrive on change as I find it exciting, motivating and surprising. Change provides a challenge to my thoughts and my values,” says Brock. With a willingness to trust an inner voice, Brock can respond to insights, question assumptions, break rules, take risks and resolve structural weakness. “Because my art dances on the edge of abstraction, many viewers see images and objects that appear without my intention. The viewer’s responses may trigger another idea and the creative cycle is reset to begin again. Observations generate ideas. Ideas require action and art becomes the medium to experience life with all its subtleties.”

Growing up in a small New England town she was immersed into nature and wildlife by exploring the woods, mountains and beaches nearby. Her imagination thrived in these surroundings and with an adoration for art at an early age she began to create characters and cartoons inspired by her childhood adventures. This love and connection to art continued through to high school and then college where she received her BFA in illustration from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. She specializes in pen and ink and watercolor and more recently, new wood burning techniques establishing a strong body of work including character and environmental design. Her work has developed a stylization of line and color palette that continue to grow and evolve. Today, Taylor resides in Bend and is working on the publication of her first children’s book titled The Most Beautiful Beard which she has written Tumalo Art Company at Old Mill District, and illustrated. 450 SW Powerhouse Dr., #407, 541-385-9144, www.tumaloartco.com.

Pronghorn Resort presents a fine art exhibit by Jerome Gaston featuring watercolor and acrylic paintings. The exhibit continues through January 15 at Pronghorn Clubhouse, 65600 Pronghorn Club Dr. Juniper by Jerome Gaston The resort invites the public to visit the exhibition. Gaston (1911-1989) worked in the early part of the 20th Century, with his brothers, as an illustrator in California producing lithographed posters for theaters to advertise Hollywood greats such as Betty Davis, Will Rogers, Al Jolson, James Cagney, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, W.C. Fields, Ginger Rogers and others. Gaston and his two brothers, Norton and Edward, operated a commercial art business in the basement studio of the Fox Theatre in Long Beach, California, selling their large show signs that were more vivid than printed movie posters and depicted the current features showing in theatres. Norton, a portraitist, painted the faces; Jerome and Edward, the backgrounds. Their lithos sold for $8–40 to theatres in the Long Beach area, offering a good income during the Great Depression of the late ‘20s and ‘30s. Upon retirement from the movie industry, Gaston spent the remainder of his life sketching and painting images of the southern California area such as the period stucco, tiled-roof building of the Bowers Museum. The displayed art represents only a small portion of his work from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. With watercolor his forte, critics consider Gaston one of the most accomplished California watercolor artists of that time. Billye Turner, art consultant, coordinates the Pronghorn exhibition schedule, 541-382-9398. QuiltWorks 926 NE Greenwood Ave. 541-7280527.

Oertley & Schwalbe at Sunriver Lodge
unriver L o d g e Betty Gray Gallery opens 2013 with a fine art exhibition of Pat Oertley’s acrylic abstract paintings in the upper gallery and Jean Schwalbe’s acrylic landscapes in the lower gallery. The exhibition continues through February 24. Pat Oertley, former Sunriver resident, presents abstract acrylic and oil stick paintings Jazz Series III by Pat Oertley, acrylic & oil stick on canvas taken from two series of her artwork, all influenced by her life experiences. Showing are pieces from her Jazz and Layers and Fragments Series. The Jazz Series features a tone on tone palette with tinted, neutral hues of gray, terra cotta, beige and black. Both the palette of earth hues and the geometric and linear shapes painted with these hues reflect the artist’s response to jazz. Painting while listening to the works of jazz greats Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Charlie Mingus gave rise to the series. From the Layers and Fragments Series is the large 4’ x 6’ acrylic abstract. Painted in multiple layers in subdued values, many in blue and green, the imagery suggests organic
subjects, some perhaps of a biological origin. The artist notes, “accompanying my late husband on his journey through Alzheimer’s disease resulted in the ongoing Layers and Fragments Series.” The artist received a BA in Fine Art from St. Mary’s College of Notre Dame and an MA in Fine Art from Columbia. She spent many years abroad living and teaching in Venezuela, Chile, Peru and Saudi Arabia. In the lower level gallery, Jean Schwalbe shows brilliantly colored, expressionistic landscapes depicting Central Oregon. Painted in multiple saturated hues, the images include Broken Top, the Deschutes, Snake River and the Three Sisters. Billye Turner organizes exhibitions for Sunriver Resort and provides additional information at 541-832-9398.

She says that her “sense of place” is anywhere close to nature. Her work reflects her love of “God’s creation” and is shaped by her many visits to the falls in the 28 years she has lived in the area. In another work, Mary Stiewig demonstrates her abstract skills in How Firm a Foun-

he Series begins Saturday, January 19 with Grammy-nominated bluegrass group the Claire Lynch Band. Long recognized and praised as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch is a pioneer who continually pushes the boundaries of the bluegrass genre. The current Claire Lynch Band is a powerful juggernaut, a quartet that has the innate ability to perfectly interpret the beauty, subtlety and genre-defying sophistication of Claire’s music. She plays compelling original tunes and has been nominated numerous times as IBMA vocalist of the year. Claire Lynch is a gifted writer and singer with a top-notch band. Mark Schatz, along with Tim O’Brien and the O’Boys, among others, will perform a little hambone and Appalachian clogging. On Friday, February 15, the series will feature the incomparable Portland Cello Project, with special guest Adam Shearer. This eclectic and riveting act combines the power of seven cellos performing everything from Radiohead to Metallica to classical music and more. Since the group’s inception in late 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or PCP, as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, mixing genres and blurring musical boundaries and perceptions wherever they go. Their newest CD embodies the group’s belief that “collaboration is the cornerstone of indepen- Portland Cello Project dence and artistic freedom.” They have performed with a veritable “who’s-who” list of Portland musicians, from Laura Gibson to The Dandy Warhols, Horse Feathers, Mirah and Loch Lomond, just to name a few. In that light, Adam Shearer, long known as the front man for the Portland-based band Weinland, will perform with them and act as emcee. On Wednesday, March 20, Sisters Folk Festival welcomes back legendary Americana artist and songwriter Tom Russell. Tom Russell is a master storyteller and has recently released Mesabi, his 26th album, a work that instantly grips the listener and holds on as vivid scenarios unfold from tune to tune. He is truly an

he featured artist for January at Art Adventure Gallery is Donald J. Stastny, architect for the Museum at Warm Springs. Paintings and bronze sculptures by Stastny will be featured. Opening reception for the artist is first Thursday, January 3, 5:30-7pm. “My architecture explores space and symbology, translating these factors into built form—and it tells stories about the traditions and values of the people for which we build,” explains Stastny. “My painting is a continuation of those explorations, translated into a two-dimensional medium. This work creates stories that are hidden in the canvas—so that each piece reveals multiple layers of meaning. The joy of painting derives from the serendipity of discovery—how the oil meets the canvas, how the light affects the surface, how stories reveal themselves through the mind. And how each exploration is grounded in a love and respect for the land and water that Cloud Landscape by Donald Stastny give us life. “My explorations in sculpting reveal stories that are embedded in, or extend from, the natural forms of the land. Unlike painting, which is limited by the dimensionality that can be created on the canvas, the sculptures invite touching, handling and sensual interaction. The power of a piece lies in its ability to engage—and to enable seeking meaning in the piece beyond just viewing. The interaction of abstraction and realism is purposeful and challenges one to discover the stories held within.” www.facebook.com/CascadeAE | January 2013

We’re proud to, whenever possible, use fresh juices in our cocktails and never pour pre-made margarita mix. We work as a team to treat each customer as a family member.

slowly approached the temporary table that had been set up under the big RETURNS signs. There were lots of holiday traditions to be savored, but the after-Christmas gift return definitely wasn’t one of them. “Yes?” said the Evil Gift Return Lady. “Uh, hi. I’d like to return this item. It was a Christmas gift.” “Gotta receipt?” “Well no. As I said, it was a gift.” “Can’t very well take it back without a receipt now, can I? Don’t know how much you paid for it.” “I didn’t pay anything for it. I told you - it was a gift!” “You didn’t pay for it? What are you - some kind of shoplifter or something? How in the world do you expect the store to give you money for it? You waltz in here with something you didn’t even pay for, probably stuck it in your back pocket, and then expect to waltz on back out again with a big wad of cash? Does that somehow seem fair to you?” “Look, let’s start over. You’re missing the point. I didn’t steal it. It’s in a 2-foot long box - does it really look like I slipped it in my back pocket? Someone bought this in your store. They gave it to me as a Christmas gift. I don’t have a use for it, so now I’d like to return it. It’s really pretty simple.” “Oh it’s simple all right. You’re a bit of an ingrate, and possibly a shoplifter, and now you’re trying to take advantage of the store. You’re quite a piece of work Mister! And besides, I don’t think that’s even one of our products.” “Of course it’s your product! You manufacture it! It’s got your name in big letters all over it! And there’s a huge display of exactly the same thing right over there!” “Well well, Mr. Smarty Pants, since I appear to be dealing with an ungrateful shoplifter who doesn’t pay for things and then wants to return them to the store, how do I know you didn’t simply steal one of our empty boxes and then put something else inside so you could return it for that big ‘ol wad of cash we were talking about? There could be a dead muskrat inside for all I know!” “A dead muskrat?” “It could happen. Happened once to a friend of mine down south, she was working at a big ‘ol store near the bayou, and this guy come in with a burlap bag, claimed he’d got it as a birthday present, and she could see the bag was still wet and wiggling, and -” “I don’t have any idea what in god’s name you’re talking about, lady! I just want to return this! You can open the box and check inside if you want - I don’t care!!” “Why? Just so I can make an ungrateful shoplifting muskratmurderer happy?” “I give up! Is there someone else I can talk to?!?” “Why yes sir,” she said, suddenly sweet. “Go up one floor, just past the escalators, and turn left. Look for the big sign that says Customer Service. Just past that you’ll see a room with a huge red bow over the top. Go in there and ask for Wynonna.”

“Finally. Is she a supervisor? Someone with some authority to handle this return?” “No sir. Wynonna’s in charge of gift wrap.” “Why in the world would I want to see someone in gift wrap? I’m trying to return this stupid thing!” “Well we’ve been down that road now, haven’t we sir. No sense getting dust on our shoes all over again. I’m trying to be helpful here. For just $4.99, Wynonna will do just a beeeutiful job of wrapping whatever it is that you’ve got in that stolen box there. Then you can re-gift it to someone else. ‘Course, if I was you, I’d keep a list going. Ingrates such as yourself probably do a lot of re-gifting, and you want to keep track of who gets which leftovers, if you catch my drift.” I finally gave up at that point, tucked my box back under my arm, and headed for the door. But as I turned to leave, I noticed a sign on the wall next to the returns table: “Satisfaction 100 Percent Guaranteed!” Deciding that was enough ammunition for one final shot, I turned back to Evil Gift Return Lady and pointed to the sign. “What about that,” I said with triumph? She just smiled. “Well sir, I can guarantee you that at this point, I’m 100 percent satisfied.” Paul can be reached at email@example.com.
I discovered this band when searching for the top female rock and roll singers of all time. Fiona Boyes is now one of my all time favorite artists. With songs like Chicken Wants Corn, Red Hot Kisses and Rambling Man Blues who could resist this rocking soulful sound? She aggressively takes the Bonnie Raitt standard and stretches the Blues beyond the traditional art-form. You’ll hear pre-war Delta slide, wailing laments, single chord Mississippi Hills grooves, intricate and beautiful Piedmont finger picking, rollicking New Orleans barrelhouse, greasy Memphis soul, driving classic Chicago sounds, the country styling of Texas swing and the uptown sounds of the West Coast. Delta pianist and Blues Hall of Fame Legend ‘Pinetop’ Perkins says of Boyes: “I ain’t never heard a woman finger-pick a guitar like that since Memphis Minnie. She’s the best gal guitar player I heard in more than 35 years.” Boyes is an Australian blues guitarist and singer (known as an Aussie ambassador of the Blues) who is internationally recognized and the first woman and nonAmerican to win the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. As she has on Lucky 13, she composes, sings and plays just about anything in the Blues realm with passion and authenticity. Boyes has been recording and performing internationally for more than 25 years, building a career that has taken her to major festivals and stages in Australia, New Zealand, North America and Europe. A veteran recording artist with 13 releases, six international award winning albums, four successive Blues Music Award nominations in four different categories,15 Australian Blues awards, as well as a string of accolades in the folk, jazz and Americana scene, Boyes has carved out a well deserved reputation as a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and band leader. Her home-away-from home is Portland, Oregon, as she follows the festival seasons in both hemispheres. When she’s back in Australia, Boyes lives in Canberra with her husband Steve, a social activist and Anglican priest, her dog Gidget, and between them they share the joys of five children and seven grandchildren. by Pamela Hulse Andrews
Little Big Town Tornado For lovers of country music, Little Big Town’s CD Tornado is one to add to the collection. Still floating on their two wins at the 2012 CMA Awards, Single of the Year for their hit Pontoon and Vocal Group of the Year, knocking off Lady Antebellum from their three year winning streak, Little Big Town is shaking things up. It began in February when the group arrived at the recording studio, searching for a different way to present themselves in their music. With the draft of a new producer Jay Joyce, the band worked in a whirlwind of rehearsals and recorded Tornado in one month. For “avowed perfectionists” Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, known for their trademark fourpart harmonies, this process of shaking things up included giving the recording sessions a live performance feel. Joyce encouraged the performers to take out reason and record with feeling as they would in front of a live audience. In the recording session of Tornado, Little Big Town used their road band to keep the feeling organic and relaxed. The band also made a conscious decision to include different writers in the creative process. The album’s first single was a light-hearted, sexy summertime party hit called Pontoon and was recently nominated for a Grammy. With fun songs being the main focus, the album also features other party songs called Pavement Ends and On Fire Tonight. The title song Tornado is a powerful tune which female vocalist Fairfield sings a lyric threatening to “toss it [the house] in the air and put it in the ground/Make sure you’re never found” to her cheating man. Sound track Self Made portrays the band’s working mantra, a forceful testament the challenges Little Big Town have faced in the entertainment industry. Lyrics “Live and die by the chance we’re taking/Money don’t buy the life we are making” show their true passion for music and their life as performing artists. Little Big Town is out touring the album with show dates scheduled through October 2013. With renewed attention and popularity, this dynamic group known for their harmonies and multiple lead vocals will be one to watch in 2013. by April Lewis
Larry and His Flask Hobo’s Lament
Bend’s own Larry and His Flask are back with a new EP, Hobo’s Lament. This is their first release since their 2011 album All That We Know. Like their last release, this EP is an excellent continuation of their newer, more polished sound. They still do a great job of maintaining the low-fi punk energy of their older releases, but with the addition of acoustic instrumentation and multi-part harmonies. Hobo’s Lament continues Larry’s tradition of keeping one foot planted in traditional American bluegrass while stepping forward into the newer folk-punk movement. The opening track Closed Doors sets a great tone for the rest of the EP with its high energy and catchy hook. This energy blends right into the next track Big Ride, a quick tune with some horn accompaniment and an interesting narrative. The third track, My Name Is Cancer is actually a re-hashed song from their 2008 album Gutted, but is almost unrecognizable from the previous recording. The song keeps Jamin Marshall’s rough, gravely vocals like the previous recording, with the addition of smother instrumentals and a blistering guitar track. The title track, Hobo’s Lament, is my personal favorite. The thoughtful lyrics are about the life of a hobo (surprising right?), and they mesh well with the slower speed without compromising the song’s upbeat feel. The EP closes out with So Long, a haunting solo guitar piece about the changing of the seasons. This is a solid release to tide fans over until their next full album release, which should be sometime next year. Give it a listen, and make sure to go see Larry and His Flask’s incredible live show next time they’re in town. by Andrew Danfelt
Django Django Self Titled The British group Django Django released their first self titled album in late summer to fanfare across the pond and in the U.S. The group met while in school at the Edinburgh College of Art and later officially formed as a band in 2009. Currently based out of London, their first album came together with surprising ease, especially for a “bedroom album.” The voice belongs to Vincent Neff, with Jimmy Dixon on bass, Tommy Grace on the synthesizer and David Maclean on drums. By far my favorite album of 2012, each track has the strength to stand alone with layers of rhythms woven around poignant lyrics. Within their melodic sound traces of ‘80s synthesized pop can be heard, but the infectious beats and eclectic sounds are timeless. The album has been referred to as “a new modern classic” and Rolling Stone Magazine placed the debut at #26 of their top 50 albums in 2012. What all this boils down to is an adventurous and passionate foray into a blend of natural and synthetic sounds. Default, one of the first singles released, powers through the opening seconds of the song with an infectious beat: guitar rifts and a powerful tambourine set the stage for their refrain, “Take one for the team, you’re a cog in the machine, it’s like a default.” Another notable track, Skies Over Cairo, creates a sound evocative of exotic musical fusion, the instrumental adventure a direct line to the baking sun and sand dunes of Africa. Django Django has a promising future in the wake of their wildly successful first album. Look for tour dates around the U.S. next year, including a performance at Portland’s Doug Fir on March 20. by Renee Patrick

Golden Dragon Acrobats Present Cirque Ziva at Tower
he new family-friendly extravaganza of tumbling, balancing and breathtaking dexterity from the Golden Dragon Acrobats takes over the Tower Theatre in downtown Bend for three performances, January 6-7. Two dozen gymnasts from Hebei, China perform a spellbinding full-length show of ageless acrobatics, dazzling choreography, contemporary costumes and traditional music. Lien Chi Chang established the Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats in 1967 with his family, including son Danny. After nearly two decades of apprenticeship with his dad and several years of world tours under his gymnastic belt, Danny Chang became President of the Golden Dragon Acrobats. With their American debut in 1985, the Golden Dragons quickly became the preeminent Chinese acrobatic company continually touring the United States. Every year, with his wife and choreographer, Angela, Danny attends acrobatic competitions around the world to select the most elite performers to join the Golden Dragon Acrobats. Cirque Ziva is the fifth of eight acts in Bend Surgery Center’s CenterStage Series. Mountain View Heating is the showcase sponsor.

Heavenly Happy Hour awaits
complished actor (Big Fish, 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, MASH) Loudon has worked with directors Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow (who recently told Rolling Stone Magazine, “In my head, Loudon Wainwright is Bono”). Williams began playing guitar at age nine and wrote her first song two years later. However, Dar (a nickname derived from “Dorothy”) was more interested in drama at the time, and later majored in theater and theology in college. That eclectic background expresses itself in many of her compositions, with recurring themes of religion, adolescence, gender issues, misunderstood relationships, loss and humor. Williams with her pop folk repertoire frequently performs at folk festivals and on tours with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin and Joan Baez. 541-317-0700 or www.TowerTheatre.org.
