Making Sense of Our Cultural Influence
ver the past two decades I have tried to position this magazine as a cultural wake up call to our community as to the importance and significance of the beauty of our region captured in diverse artwork from painting, pottery and sculptures to murals and wearable art, heard aloud from poets and writers in the local music scene from country, blues and hip hop to our theatrical successes at the Tower Theatre, 2nd Street, Bend Experimental Art Theatre and Cascades Theatrical Company. In the early days of Cascade A&E few gave credence to the importance of the local art scene let alone to the economic value that the creative community provides to our region. We were not talking about research that demonstrates that creativity increases test scores, generates social responsibility and can turn a failing student into a success story. We just wanted people to know that our lifestyle is better served with a vibrant arts community. During a recent taping of State of Wonder on Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), the host Emily Carr asked Pat Clark of Atelier 6000 (A6) and me about what the recession did to Central Oregon’s arts scene. Pat and I looked at each other and smiled knowing full well the toll it took on nearly everyone in Central Oregon and how the arts suffered with decreasing budgets for arts organizations and the struggles that galleries and artists went though.
tourism economy. On OPB Pat said that A6 is now a gathering place with artists, students and patrons touching base. She has seen a change and emphasis on aesthetics that she thought would never be possible. We both agreed that the recession resulted in some good things: a repositioning of people back into education and people losing traditional jobs becoming creative with their skills (from construction worker to metal artist). And now? One final note that was said on OPB: Bend has arrived. We are not just a recreational paradise, we are an arts community from Last Saturday at the Old Ironworks to First Friday in downtown Bend, and it has had a rippling effect on our surrounding communities who are developing their own festivals, roundabouts and artwalks. It’s a complex and multilayered culture, one we can be very proud to call home.
But we smiled because we know that time and hard work changes everything and that through diversity comes new awareness and creativity. Under Pat’s leadership and during the recession Atelier made a shift in its mission that forged a new relationship with arts education and cultivated (among other things) in the enormously successful M. C. Escher art exhibit with his genius woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints that inspired local students. Artists are not to be deterred in their pursuit of their craft. It seems that for every gallery that closes two more open. Most of the arts organizations in Central Oregon have fully survived the recession and more are beginning and thriving including BendFilm, Sunriver Music Festival, Scalehouse, Art on the High Desert, Arts Central, Central Oregon Metal Arts Guild, Songwriters Association, Sisters Folk Festival, Quilt Show, Central Oregon Symphony, High Desert Chamber Music, Jefferson CO Art Association, Arts & Culture Alliance and of course the museums (Bowman, High Desert, Des Chutes Historical and Warm Springs). Art in Public Places has been an enormous contributor to Bend’s art resurgence utilizing public art (especially throughout our roundabouts) to enhance the cultural environment and encourage visitors to our area. And of course, thanks to Visit Bend, we now have a Cultural Tourism Fund that will promote arts and cultural programs to enhance Bend’s

Paying for Art What it’s Worth
rtists, writers, dancers, musicians and just about every creative has undoubtedly encountered this troubling proposition: “We can’t afford to pay you for your (painting, performance, poem, illustration, etc.), but it would be great recognition and who knows where that could lead!” It’s troubling because those artists, writers and dancers are professionals. They are people with bills and kids and cars, people who are probably still paying off an expensive education to learn those professions, and those responsibilities can’t be paid with recognition. Below are several reasons for artists on why it’s not a good idea to work for free. Professionals Get Paid: As an intern or student you might find yourself working for next to nothing, but once working as a professional you need to be get paid as a professional. Accountants Wouldn’t Do It: Trying to find someone to do your taxes in exchange for a positive shout-out on Facebook? Good luck. Free Work Spawns More Free Work: In the world of free blogs, free news sites and free clip art, once you work for free it’s hard to find someone who will pay you. No Money is Actually Negative Money: The time spent on a project will usually include a coffee break, lunch, gas or travel expenses, all monetary losses if you are not earning anything. They Weren’t Paying You Much to Begin With: Musicians perform for bar tabs, actors perform four-week runs in professional theaters for a couple hundred dollars or less, writers are paid by the word, but that’s more than nothing. The next time someone asks you donate your time or talents, ask them to donate to your wallet. (Adapted from The Dallas Observer)

Books & Miniature Things by JEFF SPRY Cascade A&E Feature Writer end artist Kelley Salber has a fascination with all things miniature. An explorer of art and words her whole life, her tiny bookshelf treasures are custom-crafted to her client’s reading desires and youthful dreams. No two of these intriguing miniaturized masterpieces are alike, being carefully created with painstaking detail and realism. “I’ve been infatuated with books and miniature things since I was a little girl and made little miniature landscapes out of bark and things I found outside,” said Salber. “I’ve always been a fan of bold bright colors and texture. The little bookcase series started with a piece called Seven Billion Souls… And Each One Has A Story. I was watching a Tom Cruise movie, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the spy team hopped from Moscow to Mumbai and I was amazed at how many people there were everywhere.” Salber grew up in the wilds of Montana and moved here to Bend where the Central Oregon population is low. “I was stunned with how many people were milling about in these huge cities and so impressed with the idea that everyone was important and had a story and it got me contemplating things. I did that piece in 2012 when there were seven billion people on the Earth and that’s why I titled the art that way.” One of the bookcases formed from a recycled book, The Collected Works, operates on that same concept. It’s a collection of “good reads” books representing the incalculable individual stories that create our complex tapestry of history. Her miniature wooden bookcases came about due to her obsession with books and a fundraising project for Atelier 6000 in Bend where artists were all given a section of 2X4 and told to do something with it and bring it back to auction off. “I got the idea for a little bookshelf and really liked it. I try to recycle old books to make journals or art pieces. They come from garage sales, thrift stores, library sales and donations from friends who are moving and need to get rid of books. Sometimes I have the book I need for a particular piece and sometimes I have to go in search of one. Each tiny book is made from book board or foam core with added decorative paper or print paper and some paper I hand marble. Every book art piece is very labor intensive and tedious but I love it.” Salber savors books for their portability and because books tend to lead toward deeper contemplation. Her wonderfully whimsical works resonate with strains of toys and childhood. “I’m finishing a custom order right now with the theme of The Wizard Of Oz,” she said. “I actually printed some backgrounds and textures for the Yellow Brick Road and have rainbow colors and a little magic wand and a little Toto and tiny ruby slippers. And I always put quotes on the spines of the books or philosophical phrases to contemplate.” Each finished novelty bookcase or book collection is a window into the stories of life and the accumulated memories, images and tales we absorb through life.

BEAT Presents Lord of the Flies
EAT (Quality Youth Theatre) has provided delightful presentations of Alice in Wonderland and The Little Mermaid in its 2014 season. Now BEAT takes a dramatic turn for a more serious play: William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams and directed by Mary Kilpatrick and Howard Schor. Nobel Prize winner Golding said of his most famous book, “I was talking with my wife and I asked her, ‘Wouldn’t it be a good idea to write a story about some boys on an island showing how they would really behave?’ She thought it was a first class idea.” BEAT as usual breaks the mold, in a way, as in the cast of 25 there are 12 young ladies who will pull up their hair and play male characters. “When girls say to me, and very reasonably, why didn’t you write about a bunch of girls? One answer is: if you were to scale down . . . society, and if you land with a group of little boys, they are more like a scaled down society than a group of little girls will be.” Golding also explained that he (being a young boy once) understood young boys and their group dynamics, so he felt that his writing would
be more believable with boys. He didn’t want the trivial distraction of sex if there were a mixed survival crowd of boys and girls. He wanted to express his opinion, that society has a dark side. Set in late 1950s at the height of the Cold War and at the dawn of World War III, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. Far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything! But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins to reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed as the hope of being rescued. Lord of the Flies was first published in 1954 and remains as provoking today--igniting fervent debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. The actors playing the diverse characters have worked hard to understand and then portray the personalities that Golding has chosen to tell his story. July 17-19 and 24-26, 7pm, July 19-20 and 26-27, 2pm. www.beattickets.org, adults $15, students $10. www.beatonline.org, 541-419-5558 Photo by Neil Costello
“Everybody will be able to relate to the material. It’s not just about coffee or baristas, it’s about humans and the everyday errors we make and particular quirks we carry.” This intriguing new web-series is highly influenced by the manic works of Monty Python, especially the antics of legendary cast members John Cleese and Graham Chapman. “What we write is socially satirical but we didn’t set out to write it that way,” he explains. “We filmed nine episodes that each average three minutes. Five of the episodes are titled, Things Baristas Shouldn’t Do and those are what I like to call Scatter Sketches, basically brief bits featuring rapid-fire one-liners all having to do with one topic. A lot of it is centered on miscommunication, eccentric characters and rude customers.” The Barista Times was filmed over the course of several weeks during off-hours in May by Sam Pyke at Hill Shadow Pictures. “Sam and I co-directed it and my sister and I co-wrote and co-produced it. We used only professional actors and comedians in the lead roles, including myself and Emily, Derek Sitter, Gavin Douglas from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Chris Sulak, who spent six years at Second City in Chicago with Steve Carell. The show turned out to be really hilarious and we had an amazing improvisational cast that brought it to life.” The premier of The Barista Times screens on July 5 at the Volcanic Theatre Pub in Bend. Doors open at 6pm. Live comedy starts at 7:30pm before showing all nine episodes. Derek Sitter will also be showing an enlightening documentary called Happy included with admission. Advanced tickets are $5 per person or $7 at the door. www.volcanictheatrepub.com Photo by Jeff Spry
apitalizing on the coffee-crazed culture of Central Oregon, local actor and comedian Nathan Woodworth has just completed work on The Barista Times, a humorous web-series filmed entirely at Sisters Coffee Company in downtown Sisters. Woodworth has teamed up with filmmaker Sam Pyke to create this caffeinated cup-of-life dramedy at a bustling java joint and plans to broadcast it on YouTube starting in July. “It’s an online sketch comedy series that takes place only at a coffee shop,” said Woodworth. “It satirizes the crazy life of hardworking baristas and their loyal coffeeloving customers. Most of the sketches are based on true stories that have been slightly altered and we make a Nathan Woodworth point of keeping our personal views balanced by poking fun at employees and customers with equal opportunity.” Woodworth started writing this percolating project after he finished assignments for The Second City’s celebrated online comedy writing courses while waiting to get into the next level at Los Angeles’ The Groundlings school and theater, where stars like Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jimmy Fallon got their start. “I went down to Southern California in 2012 to begin training in improvisation at The Groundlings and had to audition,” he said. “I made it through all the improv levels really fast. We watched classic Monty Python, Laurel and Hardy, Malcolm in the Middle and Saturday Night Live. For Barista Times I wanted to challenge myself by seeing how many sketch ideas I could come up with in one location. My sister, Emily, who is a professional writer, and I both decided to set it at a coffee shop where we work. Confining it to one location actually gave us more ideas, and doing it at a coffee house allowed us access to the full spectrum of humanity.

Roger Ebert’s Life Itself Documentary Premieres at Tower
Photo courtesy of the Tower Theatre
he Tower Theatre Foundation, in collaboration with BendFilm, will present the Central Oregon premiere of the new documentary on the surprising and entertaining life of Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert. Based on his memoir of the same name, Life Itself debuts Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm at the Tower. Part critical biography and part personal history, a centerpiece of the movie reveals how Ebert and Gene Siskel revolutionized film criticism and became the most recognized and powerful movie critics in the world. In pre-show remarks, the Tower’s Executive Director Ray Solley will share his memories and inside stories as producer of Roger and Gene’s PBS series Sneak Previews. Thea Flaum, executive producer of Sneak Previews and one of the principal interviewees in Life Itself, is slated to attend the Tower premiere for an audience Q&A after Roger Ebert the film. “Working with Roger was my first job in television,” said Solley. “It was full of pressure, but with a sense of adventure. We were on the outskirts of Chicago, building a new television format, intensely focused on making a show that talked simply and honestly about the movies. When public television viewers started falling in love with the series, we were thrilled. “Showing this documentary is an opportunity for me to reflect on those early days, from fights with Roger and Gene to casting the Dog of the Week to winning an Emmy with them.” The film travels through Roger’s precocious start in Urbana, Illinois; his migration to Chicago; his unexpected promotion as the Chicago Sun-Times’ movie critic; the creation of the television show that revolutionized film criticism; and his difficult and inspiring fight with cancer. Todd Looby, executive director of BendFilm, commented, “As a fellow alumnus of the University of Illinois and a former Chicagoan, my life was hugely impacted by Roger Ebert. His enthusiasm for film was infectious and his attitude about life was inspiring. He played a key role in my decision to become a filmmaker. BendFilm is honored to help bring this film to Bend.” Life Itself was produced and directed by Steve James (Hoop Dreams), with executive producers Martin Scorsese and Steve Zaillian. It’s unrated and runs 118 minutes. 541-317-0700 or TowerTheGene Siskel, Ray Solley and Rober Ebert on Solley’s birthday atre.org Photo courtesy of Ray Solley

first time screening of the family feature film, Ugly Benny, shot and produced, was shown at the Sisters Movie House last month. Writer/director Richard Brandes, local producer Michael Gough and local Director of Photography Eli Pyke, along with many of the local crew and cast were present at the screening where they also discussed their vision for creating a viable film and television industry in Central Oregon. The film centers around growing up in the small, all American town of Summerville. Sam and Emma were sweethearts almost from the moment they could walk, and the two had so much in common, including a mutual fondness for animals, that it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when they married right after high school, started a family and opened a small business of their own, For Pet’s Sake. As the happy owners of the only pet store in town Sam and Emma have managed to make a nice, comfortable living with their humble little shop for over 40 years. Yep, over 40 years of just your normal, small town, relatively uneventful “mom and pop” business. But then Benny,
a lovable, mysterious, but quite homely little wiry haired mess of a puppy with a knack for changing the lives of those he comes in contact with for the better, happened along and ever since nothing has quite been the same for Sam and Emma or their colorful, loyal and sometimes quirky clientele, especially for one troubled young boy, Alex, who Sam and Emma hire to help around the shop. As Emma says, “Benny sees the good in everyone,” and once Benny takes an immediate liking to Alex it’s only a matter of time before he too will know the special power of Benny’s love and friendship and find his young life and the life of his family taking a happy turn for the better. For information about the local film industry or this film contact Michael Gough at michaelgough. email@example.com. firstname.lastname@example.org

Stage Right and 2nd Street Theater have been taking chances on new plays for several years. In 2007, 2nd Street presented the World Premiere of Garden Politics, a comedy by New York City
playwright, Michael Slade. Since then, Stage Right and 2nd Street have produced or co-produced six world premieres including the most recent sell out shows, Helen on Wheels by Cricket Daniel and Blemished, A Musical by Katelyn Alexander, both from Bend. “Stage Right Productions has given 2nd Street Theater a whole, new life by introducing new playwrights and giving their words life on our stage. We are so grateful for the amazing support of our audiences, and we’re absolutely thrilled to become part of the AACT NewPlayFest,” says Maralyn Thoma, artistic director and owner or 2nd Street Theater. “Putting on a brand new play that no one is familiar with is a huge risk, but very exciting,” says Stage Right Productions Managing Director Sandy Klein, “but the Central Oregon Community has really been supportive of what we’re doing, and it is such an honor to be chosen for the AACT NewPlayFest!” For information on becoming a sponsor for the winning play production at 2nd Street Theater contact Sandy Klein at sandyk@2ndstreettheater. com or 541-598-5262. aact.org

Bend Artists Create Fiber Painting for Sisters Quilt Show
he Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (SOQS) offers a variety of exhibits and events – and not all involve quilts. Wish Upon A Card, one of the most popular of these events, is a fundraiser that benefits both the SOQS and Wendy’s Wish, a program of the St. Charles Foundation and sponsored by the St. Charles Cancer Center Radiation Oncologists. Original hand-made fabric postcards are donated, a select number are then framed and all cards are offered for sale or www.CascadeAE.com| July 2014
auction throughout “Quilt Show Week.” This year, more than 500 of these cards have been donated by artists throughout North America. Lisa and Lori Lubbesmeyer, owners of the Lubbesmeyer Studio & Gallery in Bend, have created an original fiber painting called Verdant Fields as a donation to the fundraiser. Sealed bids for this unique art piece will be accepted until 2pm on July 8. According to Lisa and Lori, “Losing our mom to cancer inspired us to collaborate artistically, which subsequently
Central Oregon Metal Arts Guild Heads in New Direction by RENEE PATRICK Cascade A&E Editor he love of art, metal and fire has unified the members of the Central Oregon Metal Arts Guild (COMAG) for several decades; what started as a social club for those involved in the metal arts is refocusing on educational opportunities and fostering an entrepreneurial spirit in their members. “COMAG President Kellen Bateham and I realized how valuable the concentration of talent and skill is in our members,” explained COMAG Vice President Waylon Rhoads. “We see how valuable these skills could be to the community. We would like to serve as an outlet for metal arts knowledge and education.” The guild is 55 members strong and open to professionals, students and hobbyists. Many members are already involved in the community and regularly participate in activities like the fire pit competition at the Fall and Winter Festivals in Bend, and most recently live demonstrations at TEDx BEND. “We want to allow for a bigger membership and offer a scholarship program too,” Rhodes said. “The scholarship will be a way for the group to be able to pay for certain workshops or classes for members. [The idea is] for them to learn a new skill or technique and bring it back to the group…Our members are a big library of knowledge, and it’s a good way for new people to meet those who have been doing it for over 40 years.” Monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of the month are rotated among the members’ studios and workshops, and while a portion of the gatherings still involve sharing stories and networking, live demos and education are taking on increasing importance. “We are in a transitional time, and are trying to be more of a non-profit community group centered around metal arts education, and [supporting] members of the group in becoming entrepreneurs to serve the community with their skills.” Many COMAG members are already entrenched in the local arts scene and regularly engage the public in demonstrations and live demos. “Our members are

started us on the path of creating fiber ‘paintings.’ Since then, it’s been a priority for us to support cancer research and those undergoing treatment whenever we can. We’re grateful to have this opportunity to create an original piece for this unique fundraiser.” Also featured as part of the Wish Upon A Card event is an optional Fabric Challenge, sponsored by Michael Miller Fabrics. More than 100 challenge postcards were submitted using Michael Miller Fabrics and juried for cash prizes. A total of 87 cards were selected for framing and entry into the silent auction portion of
pretty active in the community,” Rhodes said. “It gets people excited about what we are doing, especially with blacksmithing - it has been a dying art, but we are seeing a resurrection.” The guild is working to obtain non-profit status with the long-term goal of being able to raise funds to bring in national and international educators and artists to Central Oregon, and eventually establish a permanent education facility. “We want to make COMAG a premier metal arts guild in the nation,” he said. Rhodes and the other board members have looked to successful groups like the Creative Metal Arts Guild in Portland (CMAG) and the Metal Arts Guild of San Francisco (MAG) for inspiration. “The one thing we are really trying to reach towards is establishing a place like the Metal Museum in Memphis, Tennessee,” he explained. “They have in-house blacksmiths and jewelers year round, give live tours of the facilities and people can even sign up to become an apprentice. That’s what we want to do. Bend is such an artist-driven and entrepreneurial kind of town; getting a facility would be the best way to do [something similar].” COMAG will have their first annual show on August 2-3 from 10am to 5pm at the Oxford Hotel in downtown Bend. Over 20 members will exhibit their work, and the group will focus on strategies of making a living in the metal arts. The entrepreneurial spirit is an important part of what the guild leadership hopes to foster in their members. The Central Oregon Metal Arts Guild has already been an important part of the creative industry in the high desert for years, and their new focus is poised to create even more opportunities for metal arts professionals and hobbyists to elevate their craft. Those interested in supporting COMAG are encouraged to contact Rhodes at email@example.com. http:// cometalarts.dreamhosters.com
the fundraiser. Each piece is custom framed and incorporates museum glass thanks to a generous donation from High Desert Frameworks! in Bend and Tru Vue, Inc. Myna Dow, owner of High Desert Frameworks! and a SOQS board member, personally frames all the cards for display and sale. “The Wish Upon A Card event allows me to use my artistic talents to give back to the community through a project that speaks to me personally,” Dow says. “Since 2007, SOQS has helped to raise and donate more than $70,000 to Wendy’s Wish to assist cancer patients with non-medical expenses as they undergo treatment.” All cards are on display and for sale in Sisters the week of July 6. There are several ways to view and purchase these unique cards. Bidding details can be found at www.sistersoutdoorquiltshow.org and clicking Verdant Fields. Download the CascadeAE App | July 2014

Stunning Fine Art from Around North America
Glass Vases by Josh Rodine
by RENEE PATRICK, Cascade A&E Editor
he grassy banks of the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District come alive the last weekend of August every year for one of the premier fine art shows in the country: Art in the High Desert (AHD). Recently ranked among the top 15 shows in the nation, AHD’s vision is simple: to bring truly original fine art and craft to Central Oregon. “These artists bring with them a wealth of stories and accolades as well as amazing art,” commented Show Director Carla Fox. Of the over 100 hand-picked visual artists coming to Bend from 19 states and British Columbia for the weekend, over half will be attending for the first time.
Art in the High Desert August 22- 24
10am - 6pm Friday - Sunday Free www.artinthehighdesert.com www.facebook.com/artinthehighdesert Art in the High Desert is looking for volunteers who are interested in helping during the festival. From assisting during artist set-up and load-in, to providing artist hospitality, there are a range of opportunities available. www.artinthehighdesert.com/Volunteers.html Many individuals, groups and businesses contribute in their own distinctive way to help make Art in the High Desert a premier art show including founding partner the Old Mill District, and new partners Bend Furniture & Design and Advanced Energy.
commented Marla Baggetta, a fouryear Art in the High Desert artist and Cascade A&E cover artist. “It makes all the difference. The artists are really honored guests and treated very well.” The artists invited to the August 22-24 show are chosen from one of 14 media categories: 2-D mixed media, metal work, painting, 3-D mixed media, photography, sculpture, ceramics, print making, digital art, drawing, wearables, fiber non-wearables, glass, wood and jewelry. In a two-day intensive jury session, AHD’s four invited professional artist/ jurors have the daunting task of selecting just over 100 visual artists from the talented pool of more than 450.

to focus on and enforce the ‘original, hand-made, one-of-a-kind‘ concept and AHD is one of them.”
At the core of Art in the High Desert’s success, the welcoming community, helpful volunteers and hardworking festival organizers have helped to make Central Oregon one of the highlights among art festivals. The popularity of the event brings artists, patrons and art lovers from all over the region to experience the picturesque setting, accessible prices and unique stories about the artists and their work.
New this year, Art in the High Desert invited the public and artists to attend a jury-preview session where the process was explained and demonstrated through the sophisticated online ZAPP jury system. This allowed artists and the public to get a glimpse of the challenging task of deciding who will be invited to the August show. The highest scoring applications are invited to the festival, and the jury provides detailed feedback on artist submissions if requested. “We curate the show and create what we feel is a wellbalanced collection of media,” said Organizer Dave Fox. 2014’s jury consisted of Raquel Edwards, a 2-D mixed media artist from Portland; Arunas Oslapas, a metal worker from Bellingham, Washington; Jim Dailing, jeweler and COCC art educator from Bend; and Linda Heisserman, potter also from Bend. “AHD is one of the very few show willing to provide feedback to individual artists,” Harvey said. “I have personally found this feedback to be invaluable.”

uring the weeks leading up to the Art in the High Desert, Bluebird Coffee Company in downtown Bend will be exhibiting a selection of work from a variety of this year’s show artists.

Along with traditional fine art genres like painting and photography found in a show of this caliber, are functional pieces like clothing, furniture and even fantastically detailed children’s puzzles. In addition to offering art lovers a chance to peruse and purchase the skilled work of master artists, Art in the High Desert places a strong emphasis on recognizing the work of artists in more unexpected ways. In their Art Makes a Difference campaign, the organizers aim to bring awareness to how art impacts our everyday activities and the products we use. Included are the fantastically intricate and beautiful pieces of clothing, furniture and toys found at the show, but the campaign also crosses into our every day experiences at work, home or play.

This combined with observation of seasonal changes in the forest, the Three Sisters Mountains, the light, snow and ice, coyotes and birds, inform her abstract painting filled with color, movement, texture and joy. A former New York City art instructor and museum educator, she also credits the abstract expressionists influence on her engaging Secrets in the Wind Emanate by acrylic artwork. Amy Royce Livingston notes that experimentation by Pam Jersey Bird was the household norm with a painter/printmaker mother, and a neuroscientist father. She learned early that doodling constituted a valid form of mark-making which continues in her present work with paint, charcoal, found objects and other materials. Her background includes formal academic training but to Livingston, art is a form of play coming from self-discovery, joy and other unknowable places. Royce describes the physical qualities of encaustic - its viscosity, malleability, texture, translucency - all entrance her with the medium. Encaustic’s vast flexibility interfaces easily with artist’s perceptions that reality appears true mostly because we believe it to be so…encaustic can enfold both the defined image and aid to articulate its illusion and emotion.

They are avid plein air painters and they divide their time between field study and studio time. Braman has spent countless hours observing and painting the landscape, striving to capture the character of the land. He paints in both acrylic and oil, and focuses on the light moods of waterways and landscapes of the Northwest. In the field, he sketches, photographs, paints, absorbs the emotions and the play of light in the natural scene. Back in the studio, he pulls together all this visual information and creates scenes that are both calming and tranquil. McKinley paints ethereal scenes with soft colors; violets, hazy blues and shimmering greens. He combines color schemes of a wistful nature that evoke the poetry and mood of a landscape.

Ceramics by Luis Gutierrez
2011 Ross Mazur worked as a photographer in the furniture industry until he and his wife, Marcia, began making clay wall sculptures. His current unique wall sculptures are made of handmade paper, a technique involving myriads of texture and color and using the colors of the Southwest. He is now realizing his life’s dream, “…knowing that today I am doing what I truly love.”
2012 Cameron Kaseberg also began as a photographer and then studied graphic design at Portland State University. He is now represented in five galleries in Oregon and Washington and participates in many solo and group exhibitions throughout the Northwest. Cameron has taken the solvent transfer process of image-making further than any artist working today, combining the process with photo images to produce color, imagery and texture that make a statement to all who collect his work. Raised on a ranch in Eastern Oregon, Cameron claims he has, “… lived long enough to reflect on life through his art work…” 2013 Luis Enrique Gutierrez is a third generation ceramic artist from Nicaragua. His ceramics are representative of precision and artistry in sculpture and stem from the work of his family and a former Peace Corps volunteer who discovered the art and developed a group of Nicaraguans to share this exquisite work with the world.

Summer Dazzlers by Barbara Slater
Artists’ Gallery of Sunriver
Cat Portrait by Marietta Bajar
ou can certainly paint your summer bright by visiting the Artists’ Gallery of Sunriver during July. Featured artists are Marily Badger, Greg Cotton and Marietta Bajer who utilize unique and colorful techniques to produce some incredible pieces. Although visitors are welcome at the gallery any time (it is open seven days of the week, 9am-8pm during July and August), a really fun time to visit is the Second Saturday artists reception, July 12 from 4-7pm. Plan to stay long enough to meet the artists and share some wine, beer or soft drinks and tasty snacks. Glass artist Marily Badger’s art is displayed directly in front of a large window specifically so that the sun can play with her brightly colored glass pieces. Badger’s process of working with a high tech material, dichroic glass, results in colorful art pieces that many times are also very useful. Although dichroic glass dates back to the fourth century AD, modern dichroic glass is the result of materials research carried out by NASA who developed it for use in dichroic filters. Multiple ultra-thin layers of different metals (such as gold and silver) are vaporized by an electron beam in a vacuum chamber. The vapor then condenses Glass Art by on the surface of glass in the form Woodwork by Marily Badger Greg Cotton of a crystal structure. When dichroic glass is fused with other glasses during a firing process, individual results can never be exactly predicted, so each piece of glass is unique. Whether you are drawn to her beautiful jewelry or her platters, dishes and vessels, none
of her art disappoints. A r t i s t Marietta Bejar has added works with her latest art passion, scratch board, to her presentation at the gallery. Bejar has been an accomplished and successful oil painter for many years. Her large scale canvases of animals and plants draw compliments (and sales) on a regular basis, but her artistic heart has been stolen by a technique that has been around for centuries. Scratch board is both a medium and an illustrative technique. Sharp knives and carving tools are utilized to scratch a thin layer of white china clay that is coated with black India ink. Colored inks can then be applied to the scratched surfaces and then rescratched for more texture. The techniques produce a highly detailed and evenly textured result. But as they say, a painting is worth a thousand words, and you must come to the gallery to view and enjoy the stunning effect that Bajer produces with the scratch board process. Greg Cotton, one of the original founders of the gallery, likes to refer to his beautiful wood pieces as functional art. The former geometry teacher embraces mathematical discipline in his process, using multiple types of woods and patterns to create each unique piece. As colorful as each art piece is no colored stains are ever part of the process. Cotton prefers to let the natural beauty of the wood shine through. He uses white maple, light brown cherry, dark brown South American walnut, gray brown walnut, purple heart, yellow heart, orange padauk and dark mahogany. Cutting boards in multiple sizes provide the optimum presentation for precision patterns like convergence quilting pattern, geometric progression stripes, chevron, herringbone and tumbling block patterns. The artist also turns favorite games (Cribbage, Chess, Chinese Checkers, Shut the Box to name a few) into works of art. 57100 Beaver Dr., Sunriver, 541- 593-4382, www.artistsgallerysunriver.com Download the CascadeAE App | July 2014

Welcome to The Sisters Country
Bluebirds with Sky by Kathy Deggendorfer
irds In the Garden, a fun and color filled visual experience in Sisters, brings together four artists working in watercolor, ceramic tile, mosaic and fused glass. It’s a celebration of our feathered friends and gardening on the High Desert.... and it’s colorful. Every year Kathy Deggendorfer, owner of Sisters Art Works, invites her favorite artist friends to fill the Entry Gallery with wonderful artwork. This year she’s pulled her favorite “flock” together and she’s chirping with excitement. Watercolor artist Deggendorfer has created a whole flock of new images featuring chickadees and bluebirds. She spent all winter working on new tile designs specifically for this show featuring birds from her Sisters area garden. Her original watercolor paintings will be available as well as the tiles derived from them. “My paintings are full of detail...layers and layers of dots and squares,” says Deggendorfer. “It is very fun to do tile because they are simple and direct -- just the color blocking of the birds and foliage but with a real attention to what makes that bird unique. I really love the pieces done on terra cotta tile...they just resonate with me.” The show welcomes back Jenelle Kathan, a fused glass artist from the Portland area [moonbeamglassworks.com]. Deggendorfer found Jenelle’s work during an open studio project in Portland a few years ago and explains, “Others do fused glass, but nobody does it quite like Jenelle. She is

a creative, innovative artist who really knows her medium. She is always searching for new methods and applications. An astute collector will get a new piece every year.” Rochelle Rose Schueler of Bend has just burst on the scene with her colorful ceramic mosaics [wildroseartworks.com]. A real Renaissance woman, Rochelle can do it all...and does says Deggendorfer. “Her background in engineering gives her an advantage and enables her to execute beautiful and functional artwork that works on every level. The stepping stones and garden bench she has in the show were poured in her own custom-built concrete forms. Just back from intensive training in public art mosaic installation in San Francisco and New Orleans, Rochelle has created some truly wonderful bird-themed pieces for the show.” Sisters area artist Susanne Redfield, owner of Kibak Tile, has created some unique, hand-painted tiles just for this show. Redfield is the creative force behind her successful tile company and is known for her simple stylized tile designs that grace the homes of the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow. “We are thrilled to include some of her original work in this show,” concludes Deggendorfer.

ll the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come.” This quote by Victor Hugo is just one of the great influences in the artwork of Austrian artist, Alfred A. Dolezal. His eclectic, contemporary, realistic oils on canvas tell a human interest story and offer a profound message. They examine the deeper meaning of life and connect its challenges and rewards to a self-empowered and justly ordered existence. For example, his painting, On the Road Alone claims that no parent, spouse, child or friend can ever come on your path. No one can drink, eat On the Road Alone by Alfred A. Dolezal or learn for you. No one can breathe or grow for you. Even if you live in a bustling metropolis surrounded by thousands of people who jostle each other in their daily activities, you still will be solely responsible for the direction you take and the decisions you make on your life’s journey. The route you choose to travel upon may often be challenging, strewn with rocks and interspersed with hairpin curves. At other times it stretches to the horizon, straight and monotonous. The woman in the painting holds two things: a blue box which contains her most private thoughts and is the repository of all her feelings, and an orange book, representing the Akashic Records. The universal laws, symbolized by the golden star-like object in the foreground, are always with her and continually shape the experiences she encounters along the road. The intricate design that surrounds her head is the sum of her existences. We are all on the road to spirituality and there are many paths. The humanitarians, the environmentalists, the fundamentalists, the vegetarians, the ascetics, the healers, the clairvoyants, to name but a few, are all making their way through life. Each traveler is trying to find their own definition to spirituality while being present in a material world, and therefore, each is united in their quest. Each of us lives in multi-dimensions of awareness. Whatever we focus our attention on, opens that reality for us and this choice offers the greatest growth in our existence. The only question is where do we want to go…what domain do we want to live in? The thought-provoking imagery and evocative symbolism of Alfred’s visionary oil paintings bridge the gap between graphic realism and allegorical surrealism. His choice of vibrant colors have been described as luminescent. Combining evocative symbolism and mystical surrealism with psychology, history, philosophy, mythology, physics and metaphysics, his paintings offer a theory to the human reality, the visual tools to enlightenment that help us to understand that which we inherently know, but have forgotten. Throughout the years he has cultivated a vivid imagination that reveals his mischievous, humorous side and his love for the unexpected. Alfred invites you to explore another realm of possibilities where art is much more than a painting. The gallery is located at Eagle Crest Resort, 7525 Falcon Crest Drive in Redmond.

Redmond Old Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration
he third annual Redmond’s Old Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration, sponsored by Central Oregon Truck Company and hosted by Redmond Area Park and Recreation District (RAPRD) will be held at Deschutes County Fair and Expo on July 4 from 11am-4pm. This is a free, fun, family event so gather up your family and come spend the day with fun for all ages. Enjoy pony rides, a petting zoo, archery, Frisbee golf, a pie eating contest, bounce houses, a bicycle obstacle course and more. Concessions and the beer garden will be open. Live music presented by Well Fargo will feature the Substitutes, who will play throughout the afternoon. From the 1,400 American flags placed throughout the downtown corridor at the break of dawn to the fireworks display over the Deschutes Fair & Expo Center at dusk, citizens of Redmond and from throughout Central Oregon have a few forward-thinking yet understated leaders to thank for making Redmond the place to be each year on July 4. Featured below are some of these citizens: REDMOND FIREWORKS Mike Moore, Annual Fireworks Donor During the recent great recession, funding for Redmond’s annual fireworks display had dried up and the community was close to cancelling the 2011 event. Then Mike Moore stepped in. The owner of High Desert Aggregate & Paving in Terrebonne, Moore pledged to fill the gap in funding for that year and has quietly paid for 100 percent of the cost for Fourth of July fireworks ever since — about $7,500 per year. FLAG CITY U.S.A. Randy Povey (w/ Mac McShannon), Chair/Co-Founder In 1991, with help from then Redmond City Councilor Randy Povey, Mac McShannon organized the staging of 180 American flags throughout downtown Redmond on July 4. While the initial display was in celebration of soldiers returning from Desert Storm, the tradition continued each Fourth of July with an ever-
growing display. In 1999, the tradition earned Redmond the designation as Flag City U.S.A. on U.S. Congressional Record. Though McShannon passed away in 2002, Povey and the Redmond Flag Committee has continued to grow the tradition with 1,400 donated American flags currently being displayed in Redmond during seven holidays each year, including the Fourth of July — a process that involves the use of dozens of volunteers. FOURTH OF JULY PARADE - CANDY Redmond Chamber, Kiwanis Club of Redmond, RAPRD Two years ago, city officials approached the Redmond Chamber of Commerce with concerns about safety as it related to throwing candy at the Chamber’s annual Fourth of July Parade in downtown Redmond. Cognizant of how candy enhanced the parade experience for kids — throwing candy is a great American parade tradition, after all — the Redmond Chamber sought a solution. This year as in the past, candy will continue to fly thanks to a cooperative effort that includes the Chamber (hosts the parade and chalks a spectator safety line along the entirety of the parade route), the Redmond Area Park and Recreation District (loans the chalker each year) and the Redmond Kiwanis (club volunteers police the chalk lines on each block to ensure child safety). The annual Redmond Fourth of July parade will take place along Sixth Street in downtown Redmond beginning at 10am. FREEDOMFEST: Calvary Chapel Redmond, Organizers Yet another annual (and free) Redmond Fourth of July event, Freedomfest is a community outreach celebration by Calvary Chapel Redmond that will feature live music, activities for the kids and free hot dogs, chili and drinks for everyone! The event will take place at The Garden on the corner of Ninth Street and Glacier Avenue from 11am-2pm on Friday, July 4.

Many people with various talents have established their starts at The Central Oregon Saturday Market then go on to build their own prosperous local businesses. Other artists are trying to supplement their incomes or help pay for their hobbies so they can continue to make and share their passion. It is a market for professional artisans, as well as beginners aspiring to develop their skills while displaying and selling their products. They support the Bend Senior High School Orchestra, having a yearly holiday show in the school’s gyms in November benefiting the whole music department. They also contribute to the community by supporting and giving exposure to dozens of other local non-profits from Chimp’s Inc. to The Boys and Girls Club. “Everyone at the Central Oregon Saturday Market always pull together and are more than willing to lend a hand and help each other in any way we can, like one big growing family,” says Janice Allen of Central Oregon Saturday Market. “The primary goals of all Central Oregon Saturday Market decisions and rules have always been to support the Where the Maker is the Seller philosophy and to contribute to our community,” adds Allen.

Breedlove & Deschutes Brewery Partner for Guitar Giveaways
Dance the Summer Away
reedlove Stringed Instruments and Deschutes Brewery have come together to create two contests to give away custom Oregon Series Concert Guitars. Inspired by Deschutes Brewery’s flagship Black Butte Porter, participants can win by composing a ballad to Black Butte Porter or by finding the traveling Black Butte Porter tap handle crafted from a mandolin neck, which will be pouring in bars and restaurants around Oregon that sell Deschutes beer. Deadline is August 1. “Collaborations are about bringing together the strengths of multiple parties, and this one between two Bend-based companies is truly unique,” said Jeff Billingsley, marketing director for the brewery. “Breedlove’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship aligns closely with our own values and we’re looking forward to seeing what our fans come up with.” The first contest is the “singer songwriter” competition in which participants will create an original song inspired by Black Butte Porter. They will record and submit the song and the top three contestants will travel to Bend to perform their songs at the annual Bend Fall Festival. All three will receive a prize, but only the first place winner will play a dedicated set at the festival and take home the Breedlove guitar with a custom Black Butte Porter inlay. “They craft beer, we craft sound, and we are excited to find another Oregonian to craft a song,” said Chris Steele, director of marketing for Breedlove. The second way to win is by visiting establishments all around Oregon that sell Deschutes beer. There will be 10 custom mandolin neck beer tap handles traveling around. If a participant finds one, all they need to do is snap a photo and submit it via Instagram using the hashtag #BBPBreedlove between today and August 1. A winner will be randomly selected from the submitted photos. Official contest rules are available at: http://www.deschutesbrewery.com/bbpbreedlove

Black Butte Ranch Live At The Ranch Concert
Photo by Robbie Augspurger
ortland based Blitzen Trapper comes to Black Butte Ranch on Sunday, July 6 for an eclectic journey through American roots music with ramshackle rhythms, luminous guitars and a heavy dose of full throttle west coast country rock. Blitzen Trapper was founded in 2000 by a group of native Pacific Northwesterners, who played around town endlessly to skeleton crowds and gave away an impressive stream of garage recordings on CDR for years. Then came the Blitzen Trapper record in 2003 and Field Rexx in 2005. But it wasn’t until 2007’s self-released Wild Mountain Nation made a big splash that they finally hit the road, setting the stage for the release of Furr the following year. This release was a high-water mark for the group as their eclectic new songs received a two-page feature in Rolling Stone. The album was ranked number 13 on Rolling Stone’s Blitzen Trapper

Best Albums of 2008 while the title track was ranked number four on the magazine’s Best Singles of 2008. After this, the group suddenly found itself on network television and in glossy magazines and astride colossal festival stages. So they released more music, toured the Western world incessantly, got to work with the likes of Wilco, Stephen Malkmus, Guided By Voices and Belle & Sebastian and slowly became the band they’d always dreamed they would be. Blitzen Trapper is a five member band comprised of frontman and songwriter Eric Earley, Marty Marquis, Brian Adrian Koch, Michael Van Pelt and Erik Menteer. The band’s most recent album, VII, was released in October, 2013, and their first release for Vagrant Records. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for children ages 6 -12. www.bendticket.com

Something I could rattle around with in my head.” After reading both books again earlier this year, she was ready to create. The results are a series of works that are energetic, colorful and masterfully done. Incorporating collage has added a new dimension to several of the pieces. From The Beginning where we find Alice contemplating the rabbit hole all the way to Coronation, the story’s conclusion, the works tell the tale of Alice’s adventures in a new and exciting way. From pure whimsy to completely abstract works, this series will delight every viewer.

New Perspective for July by Eileen Lock
ou may feel like blurting out your ideas as this month begins. Be willing to adjust your plan on the 3rd and even let go and consider something different. Appreciate the company of those around you on the 6th and realize many things are about to change. Challenge yourself on the 8th to consider new ideas and be willing to make a quick decision. There will be a sense of completion in doing this. The Full Moon on the 12th will ask you to follow through on recent decisions. Be gentle with your words and people will be more willing to cooperate. New opportunities begin after the 15th and there is a definite upswing in the energy. Think about what you want and be willing to be a little selfish. Be honest with yourself about what you hear on the 18th and let yourself be vulnerable with those who want to nurture you. More decisions are necessary on the 20th and changes are happening soon after. You may need to tell someone how you really feel on the 21st so let go of your fears and be honest. Follow your heart on the 24th even if it means going a brand new direction. Part of you will feel excited and the rest of you may feel apprehensive. After the 25th you will only be able to do what feels right. The New Moon on the 26th could be the beginning of a few stressful days. Have faith as things are changing and remind yourself that you will get through it. Relationships are changing during this time and it will be important to be open to new directions. More than anything else it will be important to Love yourself and make your happiness important.
