In a Surprise Move Nature of Words Folds

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. ~ George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950 Irish playwright, a co-founder London School of Economics) n a letter dated May 23 emailed to a select group of supporters of the Nature of Words (NOW ), Board of Directors President Chuck Mohler and Executive Director Amy Mentuck stated that the organization would “close its doors and transition its literary arts programming to the Deschutes Public Library.” This announcement comes as a complete surprise to me and numerous other supporters of the festival. Acknowledging that Central Oregon is a growing environment for cultural entities that add to the quality of life and economic vitality of Central Oregon, the closing of NOW is both alarming and disappointing. The letter announcing the closing did not give the reason for closing the organization although some have suggested that fundraising was challenging (it always is, but the economy has improved and other arts organizations including BendFilm, the Sunriver Music Festival, Caldera and the High Desert Museum are flourishing). Certainly other arts organizations have struggled during challenging times. In 2008 the Cascade Festival of Music closed but not without a thorough vetting of the difficulties with numerous community volunteers, sponsors and advisory members. The festival was $190,000 in debt, the economy was tanking and perhaps through some mismanagement of the organization (both the director and the board president were criticized for not asking for help sooner), it was not able to recover. The community was saddened by its departure, but the decision to end the festival was not done under closed doors and without community input. There certainly was a time when BendFilm Festival was seeing troubling times through numerous director and board changes. Yet, despite the turmoil, the community has been asked and has risen to the occasion to support independent film in Central Oregon for over 10 years. Not so with the Nature of Words, which was founded in 2005 by author Ellie Waterston who was not included in the decision making process to give the literary arts program to the Deschutes Public Library, a public agency. No large group discussions were held

Coming to the

as to the fundraising challenges nor where the organization would best fit into other entities such as the High Desert Museum, that was intimately involved in the festival at one point nor COCC or OSU-Cascades, longtime supporters. Mentuck says that the decision to close was a difficult but necessary one to make. No doubt. Following Waterston’s departure in 2012, the firing of the next director, Robert McDowell in 2013 and then the hiring of Mentuck last year, it appeared the organization would be on solid footing. In fact, as an advisory board member, I asked the staff point blank if there were money challenges, and I was absolutely assured that: “We are financially stabilized and have sufficient funds to maintain our space and all of our educational outreach programs through the year.” In defending the secretive decision, Mentuck says: “The board and staff discussed all possible options at length and reached out to many close allies. The library was ultimately selected because we believe they are a strong steward with the infrastructure and capacity to continue bringing literary arts programming to the community in a vital and growing way. Initial talks had to be in confidence. We believed the news of our decision had to be careful, thoughtful and strategic as well.” Why was this all done behind closed doors? No communication about the problems was ever provided to the advisory board regarding the scope of the change... the advisory board should have had an opportunity to weigh in on the transformation. We have had numerous other occasions where the organization was in trouble, often community leaders came together to help the organization and it happened through a collective and collaborative effort on many factors. But not so this time: this was a complete surprise to me and numerous other supporters of the festival. According to the board president at least NOW is closing without a deficit, but answers to the financial situation and what happens to the endowment fund have gone unanswered. I respectfully disagree that this was handled in the most appropriate and ethical manner.

Color is a Language “There are infinite shadings of light and shadows and’s an extraordinarily subtle language. Figuring out how to speak that language is a lifetime job.” - Conrad Hall


here is no disputing the power of color in our lives. The blue of the sky and ocean evoke peace and calm, the yellow and orange glow of the sun: energy and vitality. And while culturally there can be different connotations in the hues and shades of the spectrum, color is a language. Cover artist Shelli Walters knows the power of color and likes to use bold and vibrant palates that reflect joy and empowerment: “It’s really just about making the most of every moment that you have and seeking beauty and color and vibrancy in life. I like to bring that out [in my paintings] and hopefully people get that, hopefully it makes them feel joyful and empowered.” The language of color is known intimately by the artists featured in our pages, but our sense of sight is also intricately linked to our other senses. Have you ever listened to Miles Davis’ album Aura? In this unique work composer Palle Mikkelborg scored 10 tracks representing the colors he sees in Davis’s aura. From White and Yellow to Indigo and Violet, the music tapped into the relationship of music to color, of sound and sight. Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon where stimulation of one sensory pathway leads to an automatic experience in a second sensory pathway. For some people a memory, day of the week or even numbers can have specific colors. It’s no surprise that research shows that many people with synesthesia are creative types. Many of our relationships to color are so ingrained that we may not notice our gravitation towards red when we are feeling passionate or angry, or green when we are seeking health or growth. Next time you are stuck for inspiration, notice the colors around you and the effect they have, that is the language of color.

Literary Word

In The Shadows, On the Shelves by ASHLEY BRUCE, Cascade A&E Editorial Intern


As a child, she was hopeful that her career would lead her to become an illustrator, as well. “It turns out they like you have artistic talent in order to be an illustrator. Alas, I have none,” White lamented. That’s why, for her most recent novel, she collaborated with Portland artist, Jim Di Bartolo, to create a work split between words and images.

Photo by Blue Lily Photo

iersten White, the bestselling author of the popular teen trilogy, Paranormalcy, has known she would be a writer for as long as she could remember. “Reading has always been my favorite activity,” she comments. “It was a very natural transition from being an avid reader and lover of stories to being a writer, where I could create my own stories to share with others.”

Thomas and Charles are brothers who have been exiled to the boarding house so Thomas can tame his ways and Charles can fight an illness that is killing him with increasing speed. Their family history is one of sorrow and guilt, from which they vainly try to escape.

Kiersten White Photo by Laini Taylor

Di Bartolo, like White, predicted his career path at a young age. He was inspired to draw and paint images by both his father, who himself was an artist, and the Sunday cartoons. Di Bartolo has partnered with writers on several books, including Lips Touch: Three Times, a 2009 National Book Award finalist written with his wife, Laini Taylor. The novel co-authored with White, In the Shadows, has been Bartolo’s “dream project.” White created such “lyrical, lovely, and creepily wondrous text chapters,” Di Bartolo applauds. “Words are true artistry, and [White’s] ability to create such whole, unique characters is breathtaking.”

Jim Di Bartolo

In the Shadows follows the lives of sisters, Cora and Minnie, who live in a small, stifling town where strange and mysterious things occur. Their mother runs the local boarding house and their father is gone. They suspect that the woman up the hill from them may be a witch.

Arthur is also new to the boarding house. His fate is tied to those of Cora, Minnie, Thomas, and Charles. One day, Arthur inexplicably discovers he knows of the specific forces that are working in the shadows, manipulating fates and crafting conspiracies. The closer Cora, Minnie, Arthur, Thomas and Charles get to the truth, the closer they get to harm. But the forces threaten not only their safety. They threaten the entire world. It just remains to be seen whether the group can act quickly enough to save it. The book, released on April 29, is now on shelves nationwide.

Jane Kirkpatrick Historical Fiction Novel


Jane Kirkpatrick

ane Kirkpatrick’s upcoming historical fiction novel is set in Oregon. A Light in the Wilderness is based on the true story of Letitia Carson, who bravely became the first AfricanAmerican women to cross the Oregon Trail. The novel includes the journey of two other women, Nancy Hawekins, a doctor’s wife, and Betsy, a Kalapuya Indian. All three women find each other in the wildness and their bond supplies the strength to overcome the bitter frontier and discover what it means to be truly free in a land that makes promises it cannot fulfill.

Letitia, a freed-slave, settled in Oregon with her husband, but after his death their farm and possessions were seized and sold at auction. She success-

Literary Word

fully sued in a state where a person of color could not testify against a white person, woman had little status and persons of color were not even allowed to enter the territory. Kirkpatrick spent countless hours researching her life. Kirkpatrick, a well-known Central Oregon writer, is a New York Times and CA bestselling author of more than 25 books including A Sweetness to the Soul, which won the coveted Wrangler Award from the Western Heritage Center. According to Kirkpatrick, “I think women like Letitia inspire us to greater things. I like telling the stories of ordinary women who are really extraordinary. Their stories resonate with contemporary women and allow a reader to ask themselves how they would deal with that kind of challenge and to see that the strengths these women demonstrate are present in our own lives.”

Sisters Author Salutes Charles Russell by JEFF SPRY Cascade A&E Feature Writer


n the annals of Native American imagery and western-style art, no one rustled the tumbleweeds and serenaded the steers like iconic artist Charles Russell. During his lifetime, Russell’s striking creations were regarded with the highest esteem amid the storied realms of remarkable cowboy artists. No one, except perhaps the legendary Frederick Remington, exemplified the grit, guns and glory of the vanishing frontier in a multitude of mediums with such spirit, from paintings to sculptures and the written word. Charles M. Russell: Photographing The Legend, A Biography in Words and Pictures is a new hardcover coffee-table book by acclaimed Sisters author and historian Larry Len Peterson. Published by the University of Oklahoma Press, it rounds up hundreds of rare photographs of Russell from his Missouri childhood, to Hollywood, to his last restful years in Montana. Bound and printed in prestige format, it captures his rough and rustic magic in a superb photo-biography suitable to grace any Texas bunkhouse or Beverly Hills mansion. “I grew up in Plentywood, Montana and my dad had a hardware store there and on the walls were Charlie Russell prints,” said Peterson. “But I never had enough money to buy any. Over the years I’ve done other Russell books and got involved with the Russell charity foundation. I’d collected lots of photographs and many of them caught my eye and I

thought a biography with photos would be a great idea. The real coup was getting access to Nancy Russell’s personal photographs from the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa. His wife really controlled what the public saw of Russell and would link a photo with pieces of art.” This impressive 328-page edition, flush with memorable images of Charles Russell immortalized through the tumultuous turn of the Twentieth Century, contains many photos unseen and unpublished before. It’s a compelling collection of still shots, close-ups, publicity shots and evocative landscape images of Russell in his many incarnations, exploring the role of photography in shaping an artist’s public image to further enhance and sell his inventory of art. The book confidently demonstrates how the Cowboy Artist actually personified the individual he portrayed. A two-time Western Heritage Award winner, Peterson has also written and published two previous books on Charles Russell, Western photographer L.A. Huffman, another honoring famous sporting-life artist Phillip R. Goodwin and his first novel, Halfway To Midnight. Signed copies of Charles M. Russell: Photographing the Legend are available at Old West Collectibles in downtown Sisters at 183 E. Hood Ave. or at your favorite booksellers. Download the CascadeAE App | June 2014

This chilling and frighteningly humorous musical will kick off with a champagne reception on Friday the 13 of June from 6:30-7:30pm. Shows start at 7:30pm with the exception of Sunday Matinees at 3pm.

awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. Stunning cinematography explores the rise and fall of dams around the country, including the close-to-home Elwah and White Salmon rivers in Washington, and Oregon’s Rogue River. It shares these events through the eyes of witnesses like the 94-year-old woman who was among the last to

hike through passages now flooded by the Glen Canyon Dam, the tribal elder who mourns traditional fishing grounds lost to dams on the Columbia and the Oregon man who has championed steelhead for more than a decade. A passion project produced by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, DamNation recently won the Audience Choice Award at the South by Southwest Film Festival. The screening will also include a raffle featuring items from local businesses and nonprofit organizations. Tickets are $7.,

If they are supportive, we move forward with the new location,” LaPlaca said. “In the long term, this program will expand all over the city,” he said. “It’s a way for public and private organizations and artists to collaborate in a very low cost, highly visible celebration of the arts culture in Bend.” If the collection reaches a point where art can be changed out on an annual basis, Visit Bend envisions an auction where the current art can be sold, with a portion of the proceeds going back to the artists, and a portion to help fund the program and purchase more frames. “I am admittedly biased, but I truly believe art is vital for capturing the soul of a culture or place,” Dunn said. “Central Oregon has its own vibrant spirit that translates so well into visual art. It’s wonderful to see that spirit come to life so diversely though the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection…We should feel so lucky to live in a community that recognizes the value of public art! It feeds our town’s soul.”

We Will Rise by Jesse Roberts

Coming Later in the Summer



by RENEE PATRICK Cascade A&E Editor n just over a year Bend has added eight new public art installations to the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection, bringing the total to 12 (with three more on the way soon). Our beautiful summer weather provides the perfect opportunity to stroll downtown and tour all pieces in the alley ways and unexpected corners of the city blocks. Use the map below to discover some great local artists. “The response [to the collection over the last year] has been very positive,” commented Tin Pan Alley Art Collection Founder and Visit Bend President Doug LaPlaca. “The building owners have embraced the program with enthusiasm.” Last June the collection began with four installations by local artists Jesse Roberts, Mark Rada, Megan McGuinness and Andrew Wachs in and around the City’s parking garage on Lava Avenue. Over the past year new locations have popped up: Tin Pan Alley now houses five works of art, the alley on Minnesota Avenue between Bond Street and Wall Street has four pieces, and soon the alley off the O’Kane Building on Oregon Avenue will have three more. One of the newer locations with four pieces of art is the alley next to Toomie’s Thai Cuisine on Minnesota Avenue where local artist Shelia Dunn painted Klondike Kate for the collection. “I love painting iconic women, and Klondike Kate was among the most iconic individuals in Central Oregon’s history,” Dunn explained. “She embodied a spirit of adventure and independence during a period in history when women were still fighting for the right to vote...She demonstrated great courage and compassion amid an array of rumors and judgment and I thought that kind of spirit was worth capturing in paint.” All of the artists in the collection are local and have been enthusiastic to be involved with the project. “We are at the point now where they are reaching out to us to be involved,” explained LaPlaca. Visit Bend has a long-term vision for the collection that includes increasing the art locations to 20-40 spots in Bend, with new artwork displayed on an annual basis. Once the frames, made by local metal fabricator, and one of the first Tin Pan Alley artists, Wachs, are permanently

Shelli Walters Explores the Playful Nature of Collage & Color by RENEE PATRICK Cascade A&E Editor


he playful and exploratory nature of Shelli Walters’ artwork manifests in dramatic colors; the layers of collage build to reveal vibrant images of beauty that are strong graphical works, a nod to her 20 years as a successful graphic designer. “A painting is basically just a design,” Walters explained. “I think it makes me a better painter and designer to [create both] in tandem.” Walters has painted her whole life. She was born in Montana, but early in life moved to Seaside, Oregon and then Bend. When it came time for college, she teetered on the decision of art school, but ultimately choose to pursue graphic design at Linn-Benton Community College as it provided more stability in a career. “I thought that I could always paint on the side,” she explained. “I love designing, and love doing it, it’s been a really fun and rewarding career.” She has worked at local firm DVA Advertising and Public Relations for most of her career, but when she turned 40 the realization hit that time was flying by and she hadn’t devoted much spare time to her painting. “Turning 40 really motivated me to get back into it. It has been five years now, and I’m still working hard to get my skills back.” Walters likes to explore other artistic disciplines: fused glass, sculpture and jewelry are all interests of hers, but found that making jewelry was hard on her hands. “It became really quite painful, and knew I couldn’t sustain it. Everything directed me back into painting. “One of my favorite sayings about painting is you have to create a lot of really bad paintings to get a good one. You want things to go a certain way and you have to work through it and let go, then you are that much closer to the one you want.” Walters began her journey back into painting with the help of classes and workshops; one of her most inspiring sessions was with painter Robert Burridge through the Art in the Mountains workshop series. “He has been really influential, I’ve taken three of his workshops now,” she said. “He is inspiring, at 70 years old he is this fireball and incredibly fun and energetic, and real and nurturing. I learned so much from him, he has a similar background as an industrial

Red Cruiser + Bird

“When you learn to ride a bike when you are a little kid there is an empowering feeling of freedom, it’s one of the first times you can get out, and it has great memories to me.” - Shelli Walters designer until he [started painting when he] hit 40; I feel a connection to him…It was a process to get back, but it’s been extremely joyful and rewarding.”

Shelli Walters

Walters began painting again with landscapes. Tapping into the endless beauty found in Central Oregon, she had plenty of subject matter. Soon she began exploring the figure, bicycles,

Cover Art flowers and currently, abstracts. The cover image, Flamenco Dancer No. 5 started out as an abstract. “I hadn’t done a lot [of abstracts] and was trying to explore it, but was getting frustrated,” she said. “I put it away, and it probably sat for six to eight months, then I had this vision of the dancer and started carving her out. I found I could pull something back out when I had time and space to be away from it, and something new emerged from it.” Walters also found creating the collage elements in her work could be cathartic. “I enjoyed tearing them up and giving them a rebirth. All those bits and pieces give me texture and nuances, and there is a playful interaction with all that layering,” she explained.  A career in advertising provides endless access to collage materials, and she continuously has her eye out for magazines, junk mail or an old project to work from. As equally important as the layering of collage and paint, are colors. Drawn to bold and vibrant colors, she likes to exaggerate the colors and finds her use of color relates to a way of living: living Bird #13 your life with purpose, joy and empowerment. “It’s really just about making the most of every moment that you have and seeking beauty and color and vibrancy in life. I like to bring that out [in my paintings] and hopefully people get that, hopefully it makes them feel joyful and empowered.”  Bicycles are one of her favorite subject matter for the freedom they represent. “When you learn to ride a bike when you are a little kid there is an empowering feeling of freedom, it’s one of the first times you can get out, and it has great memories to me,” she explained. “I love how that carries through until the time to when you can’t ride anymore, also Bend is such a great bicycle town!”

Her bicycle paintings are just one in a series of subject matter. She credits the designer side of her skill set that enjoys working on different projects at the same time. She works on three to five paintings at a time, explaining that she doesn’t like to get bogged down and stuck in a painting, and working on multiple works at the same time is part of her process. “I let the subject matter come to me,” Walters said. “It’s like life, I take it day by day and let things happen and trust that I’m on the right path and it will all be ok.” Walters is a new member of the Tumalo Art Company (TAC), an artist owned and operated fine art gallery in the Old Mill District. “It’s been on my radar to find a gallery to go into,” she commented. “Susan Luckey Higdon contacted me. She was an art director at Ralston years ago and we knew each other, and she had been keeping her eye on me…[the TAC members] are such a great group of people, genuine and helpful, and it has been a really wonderful experience.”  Ultimately Walters would love to devote more time to her art, as the balancing act between work, relationships, art and play can be tricky. She has carved out one day a week as her “dedicated painting day,” and plans to devote more energies to abstract art. “I’ve always kind of played around with abstracts, it’s just a different kind of animal. I’m starting to get brave enough to do it, and will see where that goes. I think that ultimately will make me a better painter for everything else [I do],” Walters explained.

Printing Cargo Bicycle at A6 by KRYSTAL COLLINS, Cascade A&E Feature Writer


22| June 2014

Photo by Krystal Collins

ycling culture continues to spread innovation in the Bend art scene. Leading this innovation, with an initiative to create a Printing Cargo Bicycle, is Atelier 6000 Studio Workshop (A6) and non-profit. The maiden voyage is set for the June Art Walk. The intention, Julie Winter, studio and gallery director of A6, says, “is to create a mobile education and advertising tool.” Passer-bys encountering the cargo bike will find a small press in the hold containing a block print map. When a pedestrian pulls the press handle, not only will they experience the art of traditional print making, they will create an original ink relief with directions to A6. Winters first envisioned the bicycle one sleepless evening in April. Though she wasn’t certain how the press would attach to the bike, the vision came together while visiting the Gear Peddler. A cargo bike, originally brought to Bend from Holland via Bendvella, revealed itself to her. Once Winters is able to raise enough funding for the bike, Flash Ink has volunteered to donate the necessary stencils and decals for logoing. After the retro-fit is complete, Winters plans to have a christening launch where contributors can access the first prints and celebrate the collaborative organic energy that has surrounded the project. Reaching diverse audiences is integral to A6’s mission to advance print making and book arts as vital and contemporary art forms. Hosting offsite workshops and encouraging locals to “follow me to A6” are some of the avenues the Cargo Bike will explore to attract a broad spectrum of participants in the art of print making. Parties interested in donating to the Cargo Bike cause can contact Julie Winter at or 541-330-8759.

So when a young mother, wife and artist was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in late March, our community rallied around her.

All of the galleries/businesses listed in this section will be open for First Friday Art Walk in Bend from 5-8pm Alleda Real Estate 25 NW Minnesota Ave., Ste. 1, 541-633-7590, This body of work entitled, Follow Your Shadow, explores a visual dialogue between memory and imagination. Each photograph you see within the frame, each layer, has been pulled from Kristina Cyr’s archives and revived by introducing it to another moment from her past. Two images within a frame may span the course of seven years, but together they create an impossible scene. Each piece in this collection is a digital manipulation of 35 & 120mm film photographs, and several are embellished with three dimensional elements. Cyr recently relocated to Bend after a two-year whirlwind in New York City where she assisted photographer Annie Leibovitz. Prior to New York, Cyr resided in Bend for three years where she could be found living and breathing in a magical artist community known as the Poet House. Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing 550 NW Franklin Ave. Celebrates First Friday with works in varied mediums by Gary Alvis, Joanne Donaca, Bill Logan, Robert Schlegel and Vicki Shuck, thru June 28. Each June the Sisters Rodeo, now in its 73rd year, celebrates this tradition bringing world champion cowboys and cowgirls to The Biggest Little Show in the World. The June Franklin Crossing exhibition pays homage to the tradition and the world famous rodeo with a show of horses, cattle drives, rodeo participants and fans. Alvis shows his remarkable and Cowgirl Cool by Vicki Shuck unusual photo of the now discontinued Rock Springs Guest Ranch cattle drive. A photographer in Bend for over 40 years, over half his work is photographing artist’s work. Bend artist Donaca, born and raised in Ontario, shows oils of cowboy scenes including that of a recent cattle drive in Central Oregon. Her paintings also feature other working cowboys. Logan, working in graphite, shows a rodeo barrel racer reflecting his life-long interest in horses beginning with his youth in Montana and retirement in Bend. Schlegel shows large horses in acrylic taken from photos around his home in Banks, Oregon. Another life-long artist, this work recognizes his continuing transition from realism to expressionism.

Composition is paramount, and whatever subject matter I choose is a pretext for the creative process. Throughout the years of painting, I have experimented with a variety of media and methods. There are so many avenues to take, each with its own twist and turn and each offering its own reward, and the exploration never ends.” She experiments with a variety of painting techniques. Some of her paintings have atmospheric backgrounds while others depict natural scenes.

Thru July Red Chair Gallery 103 NW Oregon Ave., 541-306-3176, Colors of Summer features three local artists, Michael Gwinup, Sue Gomen-Honnell and Gabrielle Taylor. Gwinup’s journey with clay started while attending Western Oregon University as an art major. One day he was invited to visit a professional potter and see-

ing the kiln at full temperature, with flames and black smoke pouring out the portholes, he was hooked and began focusing on pottery classes. His raku fired vases, lamps and wall plates start with being hand-formed on a potter’s wheel or slab rollers. It is glazed and decorated by hand, then fired in the raku process which includes a firing at 1,800 degrees. After the work is pulled out of the kiln and placed in a bed of sawdust, it is cooled rapidly with water. The sawdust brings out beautiful metallic lusters in the glaze, while the rapid cooling creates the crackle patterns typical of raku. Michael and his wife Michele, also a potter, show throughout the northwest and offer workshops in the process of raku. Watercolor painting by Gomen-Honnell feels creating art is an exciting adventure. Her Sue Gomen-Honnell paintings convey her appreciation for living things. She feels that watercolor is the media that best represents her painting style. Her loose luminous backgrounds are accomplished through multiple layers of watercolor. She then uses these backgrounds to highlight the details in her paintings. It is her hope that her paintings will bring the same feelings and inspiration to the viewer that creating them brings to her.   Taylor loves to combine the color of gemstones and pearls with the texture and shine of silver. Each piece is one of a kind, with a wide variety of styles and designs, often influenced by the stone to be featured. The silver is formed by a relatively new method, only available in the last 20 years, which holds the silver in a clay base Raku by Michael Gwinup until the piece is formed. This method allows for lots of texture and more organic forms. High kiln temperatures burn off the clay, leaving 99.9 percent silver, called “Fine Silver.” Final polishing and gem setting is done by more traditional methods, always with a quality finish in mind.   Exhibiting thru June. For Gabrielle Taylor, the discovery of jewelry making was a creative turning point in her life. Taylor had always done something creative to balance her mathematical side, from spinning and weaving, through designing homes and decorating, to making computer applications which provided maximum ease of use and presentation. When she first began using gemstones in beaded jewelry, and then moving into making the silver Jewelry by Gabrielle Taylor Gabrielle Taylor pieces, Taylor says she found her true soul. “The silver is beautiful, and the colors and luminosity of the gems excites me.” Taylor starts with powdered silver mixed into a clay base, called Precious Metal Clay, or PMC. This silver form can then be rolled, stamped, carved or otherwise shaped, before it’s fired in a kiln at high temperatures to burn off the clay, leaving the fine silver. Obtaining high texture and unusual shapes is the big advantage of this method, and many leading silversmiths utilize it in their work. The finishing and stone setting follows more traditional silversmithing methods. Gabrielle has been making silver jewelry since 2007, learning mainly from reading and research, and often by tackling designs which were at the time, way beyond what she felt her skills to be. Her designs have won several awards, and been used in art jewelry magazine ads. Taylor’s membership in Central Oregon Metal Arts Guild (COMAG) has offered many learning experiences, not only in metal work itself but in professional development. Gabrielle Taylor is a member artist at the Red Chair Gallery. Sage Custom Framing 834 NW Brooks St., 541-382-5884, Featuring Shelly Wierzba The Seduction of Line and Color.

Quality Art at the Fifth Annual Sunriver Art Faire in August


he Annual Sunriver Art Faire looks forward to its fifth year in The Village at Sunriver on August 8-10. Four Central Oregon art professionals have served as jurors to select the highest quality works from among the more than 150 artist applicants. The Jurors have experience and expertise in a variety of art; since the categories include several art venues, it is important for the jurors to have a range of art knowledge. The Sunriver Women’s Club acknowledges the jurors who served in the 2014 Sunriver Art Faire process. Karen Bandy is an awarding-winning artist who works out of her studio in downtown Bend. About nine years ago Bandy added another artistic passion to her repertoire: she began painting in acrylics. In jewelry and in painting, her emphasis is working with color and reflecting her customers’ personalities, working closely with each one to create the perfect piece. Karen’s newest painting style features a blend of realistic animals done abstractly through layering, gesture, texture and color. Paul Alan Bennett has experienced the power of art since childhood. His travels in Greece, Istanbul and Mexico influence his bold, colorful style, unique in its “knit” look that Pendleton Woolen Mills has produced in 16 tapestries. Bennett’s work has been featured on Oregon Art Beat as well as on prints, greeting cards, and books, CD and magazine covers. Bennett holds a bachelor in fine art from The Maryland Institute of

Marty Stewart's Sunriver Afternoon Selected as Sunriver Music Festival 2014 Poster Artwork


arty Stewart’s original pastel painting Sunriver Afternoon has been selected as the Sunriver Music Festival’s poster artwork for 2014. Each year, the Festival selects a Central Oregon artist to create the artwork for the annual festival poster. Local artists were invited to submit a piece for consideration and a committee of art enthusiasts selected Stewart’s artwork. Stewart’s original artwork was framed by Eastlake Framing and is currently on display at the Bank of Cascades in Sunriver. It will be a featured auction item at the Festival Faire dinner and auction on Monday, August 4 at the Sunriver Resort Great Hall. Over 300 posters featuring Marty’s artwork will be distributed for display in businesses in Sunriver, Bend, Sisters and Redmond. Posters are also available to purchase at the Sunriver Music Festival office in The Village in Sunriver and at various businesses and galleries in Sunriver, Bend and Sisters. Stewart began her journey as an artist at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she earned her bachelor in fine art in painting and drawing in 1970. Many years and diverse life experiences later brought Marty to Central Oregon in 1998, where she resumed her original pursuit of artistic expression, first in beadwork, now in pastel and watercolor paintings. Workshops with

plein air painters in Oregon and New Mexico introduced her to the wonderful world of painting out of doors. Stewart’s paintings, drawings and prints are in numerous collections throughout the U.S. and she is the recipient of several local and national awards for her work. She now teaches pastel painting at a local art society. Her paintings, prints and cards may be seen at Tumalo Art Co. in Bend and she is a member of the Plein Air Painters of Oregon and the Sagebrusher’s Art Society. “Beauty in nature is my inspiration in creating art, and I find it in abundance in the Central Oregon landscape and in my travels throughout the West,” explains Stewart. “I love searching out new vistas of mountains, rivers, deserts and forests for inspiration and ideas.” Sunriver Music Festival posters are available for $12. Framed posters are $65. Notecards are $12 for a pack of ten and available at the Sunriver Music Festival. 541-593-1084, tickets@sunrivermusic. org,

Druian, Leagjeld & Slater at Sunriver Resort Lodge


unriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery presents a fine art exhibit featuring Janice Druian, oil landscapes and Tracy Leagjeld, monotypes in the upper gallery with a feature of oils by Barbara Slater in the lower gallery. The exhibit continues through July 5.

A native of Bend, the artist now resides and works in Portland. Leagjeld, living in Bend until recently, helped to found and manage the Tumalo Art Company with co-founder Susan Luckey Higdon. Druian, Bend artist, presents oil landscapes reflecting the beauty of remote parts of Oregon and Idaho in their opalescent mountains, vermillion cliffs and dramatic sunrises and sunsets. Her palette, expressing the vibrant light of the region, encompasses the entire color spectrum.

Leagjeld, painter and printmaker, shows monotypes. Presently, she creates monotypes on board as well as on paper on board. The finished print needs no framing behind glass, avoiding reflection from glass so prominent in Central Oregon sun. The artist also notes that the glass tends to dull the lush texture achieved with the layering of the relief inks on the board.   Beginning with a drawing, often of landscape or city scenes as reference, she paints the plate with thickly textured inks, then lays the board or paper onto the inked plate. Then she applies pressure by hand to transfer the ink onto the board. Most printers, including those working with Reflecting Time by Tracy Leagjeld monotypes, traditionally use a press. Leagjeld’s method requires strength and constant pressure to transfer the inks from the plate. The artist notes that art is her way to share her affection for light and color. She comments, “Forests, meadows, deserts and cities all have unique energy. I try to absorb their energy and hopefully transfer this experience to the art on which I am working. If accomplished, I am satisfied with my work. I am not interested with capturing exact shape and color. Rather, I strive to feel the spirit of the place and then create work that allows the viewer to experience this spirit or energy.”| June 2014

these subjects.

Showing in the lower gallery are Slater’s oils reflecting her passion that began in her youth for barnyard animals. The artist paints her impressions of the personalities of cows and roosters creating endearing visions of

This show also introduces Slater’s richly colored landscapes of Central Oregon including over-scale, brilliant red poppies growing in fields. Ranch and Country magazine of Santa Ynez, California, frequently features her work on its cover. She is a member of Oil Painters of America and the California Art Club. Sunriver invites the public to the exhibitions at the Lodge, open all hours. Billye Turner organizes exhibitions for Sunriver Resort and provides additional information at 503-780-2828.

Early Morning Walk on the River by Janice Druian


Druian’s art appeared at the Eigth Annual (2014) Plein Air Invitational in Borrego Springs and at the 2014 invitational Cowgirl Up: the Other Half of the West at the Desert Caballeros Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona.


Art Imitates Life at Artists’ Gallery Sunriver Village

ummer is heating up at the Artists’ Gallery in Sunriver Village. The gallery will be offering longer daytime hours (10am-7pm) and will be open every day. Visitors will have more time to spend chatting with artists and admiring locally produced artworks. The optimum time to hang out with all of the artists is the Second Saturday Reception (Saturday, June 14, 4-7pm). ‘Hangin’ out’ includes great munchies and beer and wine and softdrinks. All of the artists are at the gallery to answer any questions about presentation pieces. Featured during June are Bill Hamilton, Dottie Moniz, Peter Roussel and Deni Porter. One of this months featured artists, oil painter Bill Hamilton, is new to the gallery. Art enthusiasts may already be familiar with Hamilton’s work from various Central Oregon articles featuring his work. His realistic oil paintings evoke a sense of nostalgia with subjects from the 1930s and ‘40s. One particular painting of Pilot Butte in Bend is as it appeared during an older era. Other paintings depict steam locomotives, biplanes and antique model cars. Hamilton paints what he knows and where he goes so his subjects also include the bounty of nature. His inspiration comes from spending time out of doors in beautiful Central Oregon where there is color and surprise around every corner.

Burst of Spring by Dottie Moniz

Gallery regulars will be excited to see new art by long time gallery favorite, Dottie Moniz. One of Moniz’ newest pieces, Burst of Spring, demonstrates once again the artist’s ability to combine an array of techniques and materials to create her popular collage images. Like many artists, Moniz gets inspiration from nature’s beauty combining abstraction and realism to give her art an edge. She says that some pieces lend themselves to fabric, others to paper, watercolors or acrylics. Another of her featured pieces is a trio of blue and lavender tulips utilizing fabrics that evoke watery colors. Potter Peter Roussel has some really new and exciting pieces on display. Judging from the volume of his sales, gallery visitors are certainly familiar with Roussel’s horsehair pottery. (Named because of the process does in fact use horsehair at the end of the firing process to create a unique decorative pattern on the surface of the vessel.) The artist is now sharing even more of his artistic techniques for creating decorative vessels. Many of his newer pieces are a study in black and white crackle finish. Some pieces have variegated finish with touches of gold leaf. Other new pieces are finished with ties of actual horsehair and stone beads. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. Deni Porter, watercolor artist, is displaying pieces that demonstrate her love of and talent for painting animals. Techniques range from realistic to impressionistic and subjects from wild to domestic. Porter has long had a local following for her commissioned pet portraits. Pricing is very reasonable, lead times are short and Dad would certainly love a portrait of his ‘best friend.’ 57100 Beaver Dr., 541-5932127 or 541-593-8274, www.

Welcome to The Sisters Country


From The Nest at Black Butte Sculpture by H. Curtis Finch & Paintings by Lisa Finch-Wiser

ortland area artists Curtis Finch and his daughter Lisa Finch-Wiser announce a combined exhibit of recent paintings and sculpture in the Black Butte Ranch Lodge Gallery. The exhibit will run through June 28. The chance to finally exhibit with her 87 year old father, retired architect, Curtis Finch is a lifetime goal. “We are thrilled to share our vision of Central Oregon’s beauty through our indiviual interpretations of the area. Family and friends have urged us to exhibit our work side by side for years,” comments Finch-Wiser. “It also brings focus to our personal relationship as we accelerate through the constructs of Big Meadow Glow by Lisa Finch-Wiser aging. The Lodge Gallery is an ideal venue.” Finch-Wiser’s dynamic representational paintings paired with her father’s freestanding sculpture will draw the attention of all who enter the naturally lit lodge entry. Landscapes in acrylic, watercolor and oil capture the nuance of seasonal color found in the Black Butte Ranch and the Metolius River areas. Her father simplifies nature’s patterns in wood construction and explores figuative work in cast bronze. Both artists’ work sensitively resonates with the intrigue of nature.  Finch was born in Boise, Idaho in 1926. He moved to Oregon in the early 1960’s to form the award winning architectural firm Fletcher and Finch. He holds the prestigious honor of being a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. His noted design for the golf course condominiums at the brand new Black Butte Ranch Resort in the early 1970s was a career highlight. This involvement initiated a formidable relationship with Central Oregon that reso-

nates to this day where he relaxes in “the condo” (GC #103) throughout the year. Curtis draws upon 40 years of practicing architecture to investigate and articulate his sculptural work. The foundation of his sculptural process is in wood and cast cement constructions. He cuts chunks, glues strips, casts and assembles. In a search for providing support for his constructions this inventive sculptor discovered cast concrete and soon found himself creating concrete shapes and juxtaposing them with the wood. Finch’s latest artistic passion is bronze casting. Winter months spent in San Miguel, Mexico War Eagle by Curtis Finch introduced him to an art studio that facilitates the complex process. Exploring figurative work adds a representational dimension to his body of assemblage pieces. His favorite new piece is an intimate sized canine most likely influenced by the dogs that proudly guard the roof tops in the charming central Mexican town. Finch-Wiser was also born in Boise, Idaho and traveled west with the family when her father began practice in Portland. Her lifelong interest in art led her to a degree in art education. She made the decision to become a full time painter after a short term of teaching and after her three children were out of the nest.  Finch-Wiser’s representational style reflects the formidable training received while studying art and art history in Italy for a year. “I spent hours captivated in front of the most historically significant artworks created in the western world. These observations have been my greatest teacher and inspiration.”

Cowboy Up to the Tumalo Feed Company by LINDEN GROSS Cascade A&E Feature Writer ne glance at the kids’ menu served up at the Tumalo Feed Company tells you just about everything you need to know about this steak house. The kids’ $6.95 offerings (for ages 5-11) feature baby back ribs and steak—no charge for little ones under 5. Turn over the printed sheet of paper that doubles as a coloring book over and you’ll discover that you can add onion rings and root beer floats to your entrée for “just a buck.” You’ll also find an announcement about huckleberry lemonade and margaritas (“We Love Us Some Huckleberries!”), and a list of all the bourbons served, what proof they are and where they’re from. Even if you hadn’t paid attention to the décor complete with faux (translation vinyl) cowhide tablecloths and the servers’ western wear, you would know that you’d pulled up to a cowboy joint. The Tumalo Feed Company is the real deal when it comes to cowboy fare. Clue #1: Overheard conversations about shoving cows. Clue #2: The number of cowboy hats at the saloon’s Howdy Hour. Clue #3: The fact that they have a saloon, complete with swinging doors and a plaque commemorating singer Pat Thomas’ 15 years of weekend performances. Clue #4: A menu that boasts “legendary steaks since 1991.” I was tempted to surprise the two old-time, High Sierra friends joining me with an order of mountain oysters (bull testicles), but just couldn’t bring myself to do it. Instead, we started with Irish Nachos (substitute skillet potatoes for the chips) served in a cast-iron skillet, which worked in a big way for my friend Ted. “My palate loves this, especially the peppers,” he said. Next we sampled two kinds of stuffed mushrooms—a portobello piled high with feta and caramelized onions, and mushroom caps baked with cream cheese and chilies. I have to admit that both were just as tasty the next day when I folded the leftovers into eggs. We also pulled the trigger on a pound of Pacific Northwest steam-



er clams, which were tender and infused with garlic, wine and butter. We were off to a great start. I was tempted to order pan-fried oysters or pan-seared scallops as an entrée, especially after tasting the clams, but that just didn’t seem right. So I decided to have my steak and eat it too by throwing in a lobster tail. One bite and I instantly regretted that my tablemates and I had agreed to evenly share all our entrees. (That happens a lot.) The flat iron steak was as flavorful as a steak ever needs to be. The lobster was as tender as the meat and just as perfectly cooked. What a treat! The Steak Oscar, our second choice, featured a 7-ounce filet mignon wrapped in smoky bacon, topped with scampi and asparagus spears and drenched with béarnaise (think hollandaise sauce with tarragon). I didn’t love the sauce which seemed thin, but the meat melted in my mouth. The same could be said for the rib eye crusted with serious pepper and a full ¼-inch of creamy blue cheese. I’m not kidding—I double-checked the thickness with my carpenter friend Ted. We could have opted for sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, sautéed shrimp or roasted garlic toppers, but I loved the kick provided by the cracked pepper and creamy funk of the blue cheese on the steak that was, well, legendary. All entrees come with two “sidekicks.” Options include cowboy beans, mac and cheese, a baked potato, fried potatoes (as opposed to fries which are also offered), a mixed green salad, coleslaw and a shrimp cocktail. We opted for tangy mac and cheese and a double order of veggies and steamed spinach, both of which were surprisingly terrific. I guess I don’t think about perfectly sautéed al dente zucchini rounds, asparagus spears and snow peas when it comes to cowboy steak houses. We rounded out our meal with a killer chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream in a puddle of hot fudge, and yes, a couple shots of bourbon that we split. When in Tumalo… “Wow! That really is a heart stopper,” concluded my friend John. I’m sure he’s right, but what a way to go.

or two nights, prominent business, civic and entertainment leaders showed off their singing, dancing and comedy skills to put the “fun” back in “fundraising” for the Tower Theatre Foundation. It was the second annual Bend Follies, a variety show about Bend, by Bend and for Bend. “The Follies were designed to showcase the important role the nonprofit Tower Foundation plays in the cultural life of Central Oregon,” said Bob Singer, chair of the Tower’s board of directors.“And a good way to spread that serious message is through a comedy show; one that opens one night, and closes the next!” Follies hosts Chuck Arnold (Downtown Bend Business Association) and Maralyn Thoma (2nd Street Theater), led a cast of nearly 90 volunteer performers including: employees of Deschutes Brewery, McMenamin’s, Atlas Cider; Chamber of Commerce Board, Bend City Council, Bend Bachata and U’Hane Hawaii Hula dancers, Belegarth Medieval Combat Society, cast of Les Miserables, News Channel 21’s Alicia Inns and Lee Anderson, KQAK’s Dave Clemens, Saxon’s Jewelers Ron Henderson and Emily Brinegar, Kristi Miller, Tom DeWolf and many others. “Everyone left the Follies feeling good about Bend, the Tower, their talented friends and neighbors – and with very little money left in their wallets,” said Tower Foundation Director of Development Todd Dickerson. “And that’s what I call a successful fundraiser!” Specifically, the Follies (April 25-26) raised $37,000 through donations, auctions, ticket sales, a guitar and mandolin raffle, and cash “votes” for gratuitous standing ovations. Ray Solley, executive director of the Tower Foundation, announced the 2015 Follies will be April 24-25. “We’ve already started writing song parodies and Bended News stories. We want to make Bend laugh in the worst way,” Solley said. The Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to provide performing arts, civic, educational and social events that enliven and enrich the lives of all Central Oregonians. Individual and group tickets are available at the box office (835 NW Wall), 541317-0700 or

It is the only festival to feature Funktion-One sound-systems on all four stages, is home to a micro-film fest bringing in submissions from around the world, relaxation huts and poolside cabanas, an open-air hookah lounge, an oasis spa and sauna, the largest disco ball on the West Coast, an illuminated forest and countless art and interactive design installations. There is also what many consider to be the main draw besides the lineup, an enormous sandy beach splash pool (check out the madness of that here: that is the largest temporary wading pool in the world when in use at WTF. All of these are reasons why Complex Media recently named What The Festival as one of the 25 Festivals You Should Go To Before You Die.

eekly summer stop for beer tastings and Tower Theatre tours is back, starting Wednesday, June 4. Shop Bend’s downtown Farmers Market and then drop into the Tower through the theatre’s back door on Brooks Promenade for free beer and popcorn. Last year, the Tower’s open houses, christened Worthy Wednesday after sponsor Worthy Brewing, welcomed 3,000 people in six weeks. And the national publication Arts Reach Magazine praised Worthy Wednesday for offering a “perfect storm of exposure to potential patrons, the sponsor and the community.” The Tower’s Development Director Todd Dickerson recruited Worthy Brewing, offering them a unique and highly visible way to promote their craft beers. Volunteer Coordinator Kit Dickey manages a team of volunteers leading tours and passing out popcorn and information on upcoming Tower events. “Most of the people who come to Worthy Wednesdays have never been in the Tower before,” says Dickerson. “The drop-in format is tailor-made for families and couples in their 20s and 30s. We are reaching an entirely new audience in an easy, free and fun way. Folks seem to really enjoy just hanging out in the—need I say it?—air conditioned Tower.” Through August 6.

New Perspective for June by Eileen Lock

he mind wants to create change as this month begins yet when you let life slow down a bit you can find peace. Give your heart the space to relax on the 4th and simply enjoy the day. New ideas on the 6th will be inspirational and could very likely lead to change. Conversations are emotional on the 7th and you could realize you need to backtrack a bit. Follow your heart on the 8th as it leads you into a deep transformation. This is all about trusting yourself enough to let your life change. The Full Moon on the 12th asks for a decision and a change of direction is strong by the 14th. It’s time to turn a corner and there are great rewards for those who do. Trust what you are learning and make a promise to take good care of yourself.  Messages on the 17th are just the beginning of several days in a row filled with insight. Celebrate what you hear on the 19th and get ready for more big changes.  The Summer Solstice on the 21st reminds us that we are all in this journey together. Open your heart and let yourself feel loved. Relationships begin to shift after the 23rd and a significant change happens near the 25th. Action taken at this time will make a clear statement to the world. The New Moon on the 27th is a time to slow down and take care of you.  Find time to regroup and listen to your body. Remind yourself that a healthy body moves through changes more easily.  Conversations speed up again on the 31st and it’s time to add your ideas. Be gentle with your words and they will be better received. Love and Light Always, Eileen Lock Clairvoyant Astrologer, 541-389-1159, 1471 NW Newport Ave.,,
