MURALS: Inspiring Art & Culture


ot without controversy, just like the approval of artworks created the Midtown Art Alley, a concept space for public art that he for the roundabouts, the Bend City Council has agreed to hopes will act as a small artistic venue. The alleyway, located at NE allow murals in the Makers District close to downtown Franklin Ave. and NE Greeley between Fourth and Fifth Streets, is set Bend.

The art world — a realm populated by masterpieces often hailed for their antagonistic, controversial and taboo uniqueness — regularly defies ‘suggested’ standards of decency and good taste in the fight for freedom of expression. Throughout history works of art have been altered, silenced and even erased due to unacceptable content, whether the motivations for censorship were religious, social or political. Fear of the contemplated content is a ridiculous reason to not have murals, which will enhance a once blighted industrial area with bleak walls with vibrant works of art. From the well-established Tin Pan Alley art collection created by Visit Bend to an envisioned High Desert Mural Festival, public art is quickly gaining steam in Bend. The Tin Pan collection, which includes fabric, metal work and mixed media, supports the creativity of local artists and has been welcomed for its enhancement of the alley. “We’ve been looking at the mural opportunity for a few years now,” Matt Schiffman, chair of the ABC told us before the council considered the code change. "It’s an important move towards not only making art accessible to everyone, but to beautifying the industrial parts of Bend.” Schiffman highlighted the economic factor for creating a mural festival especially during the shoulder seasons like fall and spring when there are less outdoor activities. Local businesses including hotels, restaurants, retailers and galleries can reap the benefits of an influx of art tourism. Douglas Robertson, the executive director for the newly formed High Desert Mural Festival (HDMF), echoes this sentiment and hopes Bend will eventually be known nationally for its mural festival.

ENCORE The Love Campaign 100% of Proceeds Go to Cancer Patient "Please help in a cause for someone very close to my heart," says Debbie Fred of Paleo Eats. Samantha Warner, her 29-year-old sister, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2012. Sam has endured years of chemo, radiation, immunotherapy treatment and was recently in a clinical trial to try to beat this disease. So far all treatment attempts have been unsuccessful.

"Sam is an amazing, wife, mother, sister and friend. She is the most generous person I have ever met, always putting others before herself, beautiful inside and out. Sam and her husband, Joe, have two wonderful children, Paisley (2) and Caden (5) and they are Sam’s whole world." Over the last few months, Sam’s cancer has been become more severe with a recent scan showing a new mass on her brain stem. Doctors locally and at OHSU are using rounds of rotating medications to try to suppress the cancer and keep it from spreading more until they find something that works. Insurance covers some of the cost, but as we all know it doesn’t cover many expenses. Please help support Sam in her fight. 100 percent of net proceeds from the jewelry in this collection will go to Sam and her family to cover medical and living expenses.

Bend Resident Bob Boyd Receives Ben Westlund Memorial Award The Deschutes Cultural Coalition of the Oregon Cultural Trust presented its fifth annual Ben Westlund Memorial Award to historian Bob Boyd from Bend at the High Desert Museum. The award was established in 2012 to honor the memory of former Oregon legislator and state treasurer Ben Westlund who championed the creation of the Oregon Cultural Trust in 2001. “Ben was a passionate advocate for support of our arts and culture assets in Oregon and believed that all people deserve access to cultural programs and the fundamental benefits they provide. As a resident in Central Oregon he was an ardent supporter of the arts here. Bob Boyd embodies that spirit in his historic preservation and curatorial work in this region,” stated Deschutes Cultural Coalition Co-Chair Cate O’Hagan. Upon receiving the award, Boyd commented, “over the past years I have been fortunate to be a part of sharing and preserving the cultural heritage of Central Oregon: telling meaningful stories of our past in the classroom, Deschutes County Library programs, reviewing sites for the State Historic Preservation Committee, being a part of the High Desert Museum as it grew into what it has become today and working with the Oregon Cultural Trust’s Deschutes Cultural Coalition have all been highly rewarding experiences.” As the award recipient Boyd received $1,000 to allocate to the cultural organization of is choice. He awarded the funds to the Deschutes Historical Museum to support their acquisitions program. Previous recipients of the award are Brad Tisdel of the Americana Project, Brad Porterfield of the Latino Community Association, Carol Leone of The Museum at Warm Springs and the City of Redmond. The Deschutes Cultural Coalition distributes grant funding from the Oregon Cultural Trust to qualifying nonprofit cultural organizations in Deschutes County on an annual basis.

Turning Fear into Faith


n light of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s important to remember that cancer is not a death sentence. In her new book, Victory Over Cancer and Fear: Finding Peace in the Midst of the Storm, Stephanie Carmichael, an inspirational speaker and two-time survivor of aggressive stage III breast cancer, shares her story of how she conquered fear and found a pathway to greater peace, hope and strength despite her cancer diagnoses. “Stress and fear are almost as bad as the disease, but there is a way to attain peace and hope for the future,” Carmichael said. Through her book, Carmichael hopes that her story will encourage many others who are facing the same life-threatening disease that she faced. “Cancer is like facing a giant mountain,” Carmichael said. “It’s a dreaded disease that leaves us feeling powerless. But there is a way to victory -- we just have to discover it for ourselves.” Carmichael is an inspirational speaker, teacher and writer. She has survived breast cancer twice and has learned how to have joy and peace, in the midst of turmoil. She currently serves in Stonecroft Ministries, an outreach speaking ministry, and has traveled across the Pacific Northwest as an inspirational speaker since 2010. She resides in Bend.

LIGHTS Features Bend Film Actor


imitri Glavas is the executive producer of the film Lights, which was released recently . The movie has soared to number 61 amongst all horror/Sci-fi films on iTunes.

The plot goes likes this: one year ago, Lisa’s boyfriend Kurt, the father of her infant child, went missing in the California desert with five of his friends. The void in Lisa’s heart has driven her single-minded obsession to find out the truth. When Lisa is contacted by a retired sheriff with his own insights into the mysterious case, Lisa and her brother head to the desert, guided by the video footage recovered from Kurt’s tent. Together, they hack through the lies, evasions and threats to unlock a dark mystery they could never have imagined. Glavas shared that local actor, Caleb Neet who grew up in Bend, is one of the main actors in the film. Born in Springfield, Caleb Neet developed a passion for acting and films at an early age, performing in plays and making movies with his siblings on the family video camera. Enrolling in drama classes and at age 15, Neet and


a fellow classmate wrote, directed and starred in a feature length comedy, An 80’s Movie! After recruiting over thirty f riends, family and local actors to appear in the movie and six months in production, the movie premiered at a local high school with hundreds of people in attendance. Once he finished school, while still acting in local independent films, Neet began to focus on theatre. Neet appeared in dozens of professional and community theatre productions including William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, playing Jack Gable in Ken Ludwig’s Leading Ladies and as the titular character in Fortinbras by Lee Blessing. While starring in a play together, Caleb met and befriended actor and filmmaker Gordon James Asti. Sharing the same passion for cinema, Caleb once again turned his attention to film and the two began to collaborate on many shorts and features both in Central Oregon and in Los Angeles, California. He now resides in Hollywood where he continues to study acting and further pursue his career in television and film.

Storytellers Return to Old Stone


o Tell The Truth—A Gathering of Storytellers will return to The Old Stone Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 12, with a whole new set of tales and a special musical act to round out the evening’s program. Once again the Two Twisted Sisters will collaborate with Bend’s community radio station, KPOV, to present an enthralling evening of true stories, all of which will be based on the same theme, What was I thinking? After the first installment attracted a large crowd to the Old Stone and October’s High Desert Hijinks nearly packed the house, producers Howard Schor and Dan Cohen went back to the brains behind both shows, the mysterious and reclusive impresarios, Two Twisted Sisters, and implored them to once again work their magic on another original program. After a round of grousing about Cohen and Schor, whom the Sisters referred to as “barely competent handmaidens,” the two came up with a new theme for local storytellers to tackle. “At one time in their lives everybody has stopped to ask him or herself --what was I thinking?—after one misstep or another. We sisters often ask ourselves what we were thinking when we let Schor and Cohen handle production chores. So the theme seemed a natural.” Based on NPR’s popular series The Moth, Bend’s version of the program will


November2016 |

follow the same basic format. Storytellers will not be able to consult notes or use props. And all stories must be true, or at least true to the best of their tellers’ recollections. “KPOV are fine folks and we’re proud to partner with them,” one Sister exclaimed. As for the cast, the Sisters declined to be specific. “You may see a few familiar faces and few that are unfamiliar.” And while the show is open to all ages, Cohen and Schor are cautioning parents that some material may not be suitable for those under 18. “We’re expecting a fair degree of hilarity, and maybe a tear or two,” the Sisters cackled with glee. “And as if a full slate of storytellers isn’t enough, we’ll spice the program up with a surprise musical guest.” But when pressed by Cohen and Schor for more information the Sisters declined further comment, dispatching their two handmaidens to tend to the details. Once out of earshot of the Sisters, Cohen and Schor divulged the names and images of three high profile storytellers- Patty Davis, Dave Finch and Anne Marie Daggett—with the promise of a lot more to come. The event will take place on Saturday, November 12 at 8pm at Peter Geisers’ Old Stone Performing Arts Center on Franklin Street. Wine, beer and snacks will be available at the Altar Café provided by the fabulous Bowtie Catering. Doors will open at 7:30pm.

Heroes on Deck:


WWII on Lake Michigan FILM &


riday, November 11 at 7pm the Tower Theatre Foundation will honor our military veterans with the Northwest Premiere of Heroes on Deck: World War II On Lake Michigan. Doors to the theatre open at 6pm, and patrons will enjoy vintage 1940-50's newsreels and cartoons on the Tower’s big screen, in addition to a live performance of 1940’s swing hits sung by local trio, The Harmonettes. Heroes on Deck highlights the U.S. Navy’s bold and innovative response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Two Great Lakes passenger steamers were immediately converted into makeshift aircraft carriers, the USS Wolverine and USS Sable.

Between 1942 and the end of the war, more than 15,000 aviators, including future President George H.W. Bush, were trained aboard these “freshwater flattops.” Crashes and “water landings” often led to serious injuries and occasionally death. As a result, more than one hundred fighters and divebombers sank to the bottom of the lake.


To date more than 40 aircraft have been brought to the surface.Heroes on Deck captures some of the key recoveries and restoration efforts, and celebrates the stories of the brave pilots who survived this ingenious training operation. Narrated by legendary CBS, NPR and A&E newsman, Bill Kurtis, the film brings to life a vital chapter of American history: the story of the forgotten World War II fighter planes at the bottom of Lake Michigan, the brave pilots who trained in them and their link to U.S. victory in the Pacific. This film is not propaganda, no political and neither pro- nor anti-war. It is history, and it tells a little-known story with amazing archive footage of planes going into the Lake and coming out 70 years later. Plus, the film’s producer/director John Davies will be at the Tower to host a Q&A following the film. 541-317-0700

Oregon’s Only Arts Magazine Since 1995 | November 2016






was in my first year of teaching high school English in Albuquerque during my twenties and one day, a strange feeling came over me: I knew, without a doubt, that I would one day be an oil painter. I don't even know why I thought this, as I had just spent four long years studying to be an educator and had just landed my first teaching gig. In fact, I had never even taken an art class before. I will admit that there was this odd incident when I was 12 years old when I surprised my family as I skillfully recreated a National Geographic fishing scene on a large canvas with acrylics . . . the talent seemed to have come out of me from nowhere, as I had never painted before. But appreciation for beauty was always encouraged by my mother when we were growing up. She was a sensualist who loved arranging flowers, sewing together colorful fabrics, and creating these cool, paper mâché angels and other crafts out of whatever she could find. From that moment of revelation in New Mexico, I would teach English by day and study art by night with really accomplished regional oil painters, many of them classically trained. I did this for the next ten years. Art became my way of life, and when there wasn't someone to teach me, I taught myself. I was completely dedicated and still am. I can still smell that same fragrance of excitement when I head to my studio in Bend to paint as I first did 30 years ago in New Mexico. And I keep a photo of my mother next my easel, since I still consider her my patron saint of beautiful things.



y artwork is now changing to reflect that new understanding of what brushwork and palette knife textures can do. I still love painting still life and the figure, in addition to landscapes and portraiture. But how I paint everything is now morphing because the older I get, the more I have new things to say. My current world view very definitely includes a quantum perspective; I am fascinated with how the field of probabilities will manifest into a particle of visible form, based on one's observation. You could say I am painting that one crystallized event, that brief moment when you can almost anticipate something before it comes fully into view. It's magic and we're all experiencing it on some level, conscious or otherwise; it's just hard to talk about. My challenge is to paint it instead, and I attempt it by inventing a bit of abstraction to add another dimension to reality. Inventing can be a little scary for a classically-trained representational artist like myself, but it's what keeps life interesting for me at the moment.


November2016 |



y work could be considered Impressionistic Realism, although other influences have been introduced along the way from my mentors, both living and dead. I was very enamored of Caravaggio when I visited Italy a few times to study there, and I have never totally shed my preference for chiaroscuro (strong contrasting lights and darks) that his work exemplified. I know it's almost a cliché to hear artists say they are painting the light, but it's true, that's what I feel I am trying to capture, a sense of brilliant luminosity coming out of darker places. That contrast is very satisfying to me and it appeals to my alter ego which loves all things gothic and dramatic. There was a long period of California plein air influences, which really forced me outdoors to observe the play of nature's color, light, and atmosphere. In addition, plein air painting taught me to problem-solve quickly before the light changed. One great teacher, Kim English, had us painting the figure in the landscape during a week-long workshop, but he would only allow five minutes to complete each painting! We all came to hate the sound of his kitchen timer by the second day. But boy, did we learn how to inject the essence of movement and spontaneity onto our canvases. That loose but accurate method of painting led me to study the Russian impressionists whom I highly regard even today for their textured and skillful paint application.




hen students come to me to learn oil painting, I teach them how I learned, which is essentially the classical, atelier approach: how to draw with the brush, how to underpaint, how to decipher values, how to create good compositional designs, how to mix colors and see them in relationship to each other, etc. But if a student has mastered these areas already and is ready for something more advanced, I take them to edges and paint application techniques. Richard Schmid, one of my greatest influences, once said, "Paint should resemble reality but clearly not be reality itself. It's not meant to fool the eye; it's meant to delight the eye. Always retain the beauty of the paint." I have this quote up in my studio as it’s a good reminder. Paint application is really where it's at for me at this point in my career.



once heard someone comment that the best artists are usually over 50 because it takes that long to really observe life and to depict it truthfully on canvas. I do believe good art requires keen observation. However, it’s my understanding that everyone's truth is different. So naturally, my art is not going to be for everybody. But it does have to be for me, at least during the process of producing it. After that, I don't own it anymore. The finished canvas is always content just to sit and wait patiently until its new owner comes along, someone who sees it and is startled by how much of their own truth has been seen and depicted in paint. Then they gratefully take the painting home. That’s how it works. Art collecting is all about the resonance.

THE SISTERS ART COMMUNITY IS THRIVING by Magdalena Bokowa, AE Feature Writer


s it the water in Sisters? Or the crisp mountain air? The lush surrounding landscape? Or the small sense of community? What is it exactly that makes this town, known by tourists for its cute western decor, an emerging artist’s refuge? One can’t dispute the growing convergence of artists that are catching wind of a creative energy in this small and tight knit community. You just have to walk down the summertime streets to see as galleries come alive, full of paintings, sculptures,

ceramics, jewelry and textiles, all handcrafted by local artisans. The recent development of both a Sister’s Arts Association (SSA) and a Hood Avenue Arts District is tangible proof that the arts community is not only alive, but thriving. Not a feat that is easily accomplished. “Artists of all kinds are coalescing and becoming a strong unit in Sisters,” begins Katherine Taylor, an oil painter, teacher and one of eight partners at the Hood Avenue Art Gallery. “We have an atmosphere of

With the new art district, we are watching a northwestern version of Canyon Road being born and that is fun to see and experience. Tourists come year after year and comment on the exciting changes they see.” Taylor, the cover artist of this month’s Cascade A&E, is skilled in impressionistic realism and has a preference for a method known as chiaroscuro, which is evident in the way that she uses strong contrasting lights and darks in her works. “It’s almost a cliché to say you are painting the light, but it’s true, that’s what I feel I am trying to capture, a sense of brilliant luminosity coming out of darker places.

very satisfying to me.” Perhaps then, it is the surrounding landscape that can be attributed to the inspiration that artists find in this community and that they flock to. A thought that there is just so much beauty, that one has to create manifestations of it. A growing group of likeminded individual thinkers that see the world in all of its beauty. It lends itself to be a supportive place. In addition to the newly formed association and district, the community is very supportive of fostering art education.

he seventh annual Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show will return on Thursday, January 12, 2017 for two runway shows: one at 6pm (all ages welcome) and one at 8:30pm (21 and over) at The Midtown Ballroom in Bend.

Rooted in a love of fashion, an appreciation of art and a passion for the planet, the Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show is an annual fundraising event for REALMS Magnet School. Started in 2010, this fundraiser features two eclectic, wearable art runway shows (one that features local students), a live auction of runway garments, a silent auction comprised of local sustainable donations, a pop up marketplace featuring sustainable, creative products from local artists, local food (food trucks providing a variety of dinner choices) and drink. The runway showcases both adult and student designers of all ages from Central Oregon. “Rubbish Renewed is the perfect vehicle to help people make their unconscious decisions more conscious,” said Amy Anderson, event co-producer. “It’s so exciting to see our community bringing new life and creativity to all the stuff we are so accustomed to getting rid of.” Past year’s audience members have seen models clad in everything from old blue tarps, empty paella rice bags, gift cards, and even speaker wires and car upholstery.

Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show fuses environmental responsibility, funky fashion and community. Join other socially conscious individuals for an evening of sustainable fashion, showcasing styles that the future demands, while supporting a fundraiser for REALMS Magnet School. Rubbish Renewed is currently accepting runway submissions for the 2017 show. For submission information and other event information, go to Tickets will be on sale in December through the Rubbish Renewed website.

Many of the large images were shot in Central Oregon over a period of four years. Some of the locations may look somewhat familiar to residents of the area, but also have a different appearance due to the photographer’s lighting and artistic vision.

American automobiles play a pivotal role, as do the remnants of the golden area of American culture from the fifties to the early sixties. The scenes play out in today’s America with real people from today living out their lives in the remnants of yesterday, while creating new narrative for the future.

The book was printed in Germany by the only fine art printer that could successfully reproduce the images at this size with such a stunning quality. The book is hand bound and is distributed worldwide in a limited edition of only 500 copies.

There is no message, no political or cultural commentary to the images. They are as much a part of American life as they are a hologram of our combined cultural heritage, our dreams and desires.

From Pie Dough to Bronze Joren Traveller’s Journey


ften it is difficult to understand the origins or inspiration that set a particular artist on their path. For Joren Traveller, the story began with pie.

Years ago when baking a pie, the recipe for the crust called for lard. Joren became intrigued with the texture and resilience of the pie dough and began to play with it. The result was a bird created for the top of the crust. Light bulbs began to go off. Traveller moved from pie dough into Sculpey Clay and created several more creatures which remained on a shelf for a time until a friend suggested she have them bronzed like baby shoes. This seemed to be a great idea. Joren took the pieces to a local foundry where she was given a tour that included several larger than life sculptures in the works. Although this was somewhat intimidating, she was encouraged by the owner of the foundry to make her existing pieces larger using proper armature and sculptors clay. Several months later Joren brought back her first piece to the foundry for bronzing. It was a beautiful horse and the foundry owner agreed it was completed except for the signature. “My reaction to his advice that I sign the piece was sort of, OH NO, I could not “brand” my horse! He helped with my dilemma and signed and numbered my first bronze for me. That is where it really began.” What inspires her today? “Whimsy, elegance and grandeur in nature inspire me, and I seesaw back and forth between these to create my sculptures in bronze and ceramic, drawings and paintings.” Since her beginnings with pie dough, Traveller has become one of the area’s most talented wildlife and bird sculptors. Joren Traveller is associated with several Oregon galleries and is an artist member at the Red Chair Gallery, Bend where she will be a featured artist for November.

Forlorn and Forsaken


by BREEZY WINTERS-Pigment Print on Handmade Paper On Paper Collective Exhibit at UUFCO

park your curiosity by stopping by witnessing this intriguing show which includes media ranging from relief and intaglio prints, collaged monotypes, and multi-media assemblages to watercolor, woven tooled paper, and handmade paper relief sculpture to pastel drawing and documented environmental paper sculpture installation pieces. This exhibit is in the award winning and artfully designed building located at 61980 Skyline Ranch Road near the new Pacific Crest Middle School. Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon (UUFCO) introduces the lovely exhibit space within currently featuring the works On Paper of 10 artists including Amy Wilhelm, Breezy Winters, Curtis Hudson, Elizabeth Burger, Helen Brown, Janie McMahon, Michelle Lundblom, Robyn Cochrane-Raglan, Sue Wilhelm and Toni Morris. Come see his beautifully exhibited show. ARTISTS Helen Brown paints in watercolor on rice paper using a batik method with molten wax as a resist. This particular painting is a set of three statues she saw while in Invermere, Scotland. The sculpture is called Faith, Hope and Charity which hit home, as she recalled our own Central Oregon Three Sisters. More of Helen’s artwork is on display at the Tumalo Art Company, Strictly Organic Coffee, both in Bend’s Old Mill as well as St. Charles Hospital in Bend. Michelle Lindblom has exhibited all over the United States as well as England and Norway. As a professor of visual art for 24+ years, Michelle recently left higher education. She is now working on her art full time, loves to travel and draws inspiration from her journeys and the people she has met, taught and visited along the way. “My work has always been about the intuitive and expressive use of color, movement and texture, which is how I prefer to consciously or subconsciously respond to my environment. As a painter and printmaker, I have been experimenting and assimilating the monotype and collage processes. The result is a depth and layering that reveal the subtleties and interplay among those elements often seen and felt in everyday encounters with our environment.” Breezy Winters created the Collector from paper mâché and old newspaper. “He embodies the pain that resides within, trying to deal with the overwhelming consequences of the collective indifference to all that is happening around me. Alone I feel powerless to make a difference, yet I futilely seek to create order amidst the chaos. This body of work is the result. “Meticulously crafted by collaging and sculpting with disposable packaging, I place my character in various staged scenes representing my internal anguish over environmental degradation.”


Sue Wilhelm has three works in this exhibit. “The watercolor, Natural Flow, is an example of my accustomed approach to painting. I was inspired by something in my life experience, the Dale Chihuly Glass Exhibit in Seattle in this case, and did a series of paintings based on combinations of images I took with my camera at the show and other natural objects that I encountered and admired while walking or hiking. This is the most straightforward of those paintings, the others having morphed into more purely abstract color and form explorations. I was honored that one of these pieces, Shadow Metamorphosis, was used as an inspirational image for our recent UUFCO mission statement reframing process.” Amy Wilhelm says process and production are a balance of technique and transcendent force. “I find the best way to tap into this transcendent force is through observation and genuine response. “These pieces are not actively proposing any answers to the issues that provoked them: abandonment, exploitation, and violence. They are manifestations of my distress with darkness, an experience of aggressive mark-making and form combined with vulnerable imagery. Printmaking provided me the opportunity to actively work into plates in frustration by physically distressing copper and linoleum. The textures of these marks transform when ink layers are added and they are run through the press. " Curtis Hudson makes books. The size varies greatly. “I take brand new leather and distress it, and distress it more, most often lots more, until it has ‘the feel.’ Each book is 100 pages of 140 Moulin de Roy watercolor paper hand stitched with Tiger Thread into the cover. The clasps vary in function, some pull and twist out and some are stationary with a leather strap to hold them and others are strap only. As we live in Bend, the wood clasps are Manzanita. Elizabeth Burger’s work is guided and shaped by materials she finds in her immediate environment. “Collecting materials in this way began in graduate school while living in an urban area. Deconstruction sites and scrap yards were fertile grounds. I combined these materials with clay, cement and wood to create numerous installations and outdoor sculptures. “Living now in a rural area I have become immersed in the natural world in a very personal way. I attempt to evoke the experiences, emotions and feelings that are attached to this particular landscape. This immersion has led to an intense awareness of the potential use of everything that lives and dies on the land. Using algae, seedpods, roots, reeds, pine needles, thorn bushes, milkweed, cattail fluff, bamboo and other natural materials, I have created a series of animal/plant hybrids and other work that is inspired by the repetition, systems and patterning in nature.

Art in the Atrium at Franklin Crossing 550 NW Franklin Patricia MartinFreeman and Lloyd McMullen in Pentimento – Literally. Pentimento, from Italian, means the emergence in a finished artwork of earlier images that have been painted over. In their exhibition, Freeman-Martin and McMullen explore that effect, literally, by working over existing paintings: their own and each other’s. McMullen proposed the exploration of the concept for their joint exhibition after reading author Lillian Hellman’s autobiography, Pentimento. Freeman-Martin, whose art layers drawings and color creating a 3D effect, responded, “Literally, that is all my work ever is...,” and a theme was born. The artists exchanged existing works. The resultant new works combine paint, images, words, collage, found objects and numerous other items applied over the earlier works. For the show, McMullen traced literal stories from Ovid, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Sylvia Plath and Lillian Hellman, among others. Her narrative pieces are all painted over existing paintings, including two by Freeman-Martin.


November2016 |

Freeman-Martin notes that working over McMullen’s images “provided a wonderful opportunity to explore another imagery and narrative content. It was an exercise in trust and freedom as we discussed how to approach the emotional aspect of working over someone else’s painting.” The exchange also enabled her to work on a large scale (over McMullen’s paintings). The artists thus found that the previously painted work inspired new stories, images and concepts, influencing their respective styles. McMullen concludes, “Then, the viewer adds their own perspective or interpretive layer to the visual stories.” During First Friday, Noi Thai serves wine and appetizers and the Tommy Leroy Trio performs jazz. Billye Turner, art consultant (billyeturner@bendnet. com), organizes exhibitions for Franklin Crossing.

Junque in Bloom 50 SE Scott Street SageBrushers artist Jennifer Starr. Karen Bandy Design Jeweler 25 NW Minnesota Ave., Ste. 5, 541-388-0155, Tucked between Thump coffee and Alleda Real Estate, Karen Bandy is Central Oregon’s only national/international award-winning jewelry designer, specializing in custom design in downtown Bend since 1987. Her designs are bold, fun and always very wearable. They fit the Central Oregon lifestyle, are made for each individual personally, and are always one-of-a-kind. Bandy is also an abstract painter who is working on a new series called The Continuum. It speaks to life slowly evolving through time, nature, birth and death, but also how we try to box it up in a neat little package, containing it, veiling truths and forgetting the lessons of the wise ones before us. The subject matter and the physical process of working with paints speaks to this idea of ‘the continuum’ as Bandy works both transparently and opaquely, adding layers and scraping away, creating line and texture and revealing hidden messages and truths. Open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 11:30am-5pm, First Fridays and by appointment at other times. Lubbesmeyer Studio & Gallery Old Mill District, second story loft, 541-330-0840, The Lubbesmeyer twins offer a range of work created in fiber and paint.

Oxford Hotel 10 NW Minnesota Ave. 541-382-8436 The lobby exhibition of acrylic paintings by Megan Phallon continues through November 21, the lobby remains open during all hours. The Oxford Hotel welcomes the Holiday Season presenting Susan Busik’s vivid and polychromatic acrylic paintings opening November 23 and continuing through the New Year celebration, closing January 2. The artist will be present at the champagne opening on First Friday, December 2 from 5:30–7:30pm. Busik’s whimsical and bold paintings celebrate her Latina heritage. Her over-scale images of Madonna’s, hummingbirds, forests with full moons and boldly hued dahlias, Mexico’s national flower, are a tribute to the magic realism of Mexican folk art. Her early artistic career featured abstract compositions but her focus shifted in her forties when she learned of her ancestry. Adopted as a child, the artist knew nothing of her heritage but learning of her birth mother’s Mexican origins, she sought to connect to those roots with the surrealistic images and brilliant color of

traditional Mexican folk art. With her newfound passion, Busik painstakingly taught herself the complexity of the folk art’s design and color. The process yielded a fearless painter, connected joyously to her past. Billye Turner, art consultant, coordinates the Oxford Hotel exhibition schedule with information at Pave Jewelry 101 NW Minnesota Ave. SageBrushers artists during November. Come join us for a view of Central Oregon from an art perspective. Red Chair Gallery 103 NW Oregon Ave., 541-306-3176 Featuring three local artists. Will Nash, of Nashwood, has the unique background of working in a variety of disciplines ranging from home-building to furniture and from architectural details to acoustic instruments. Though his interests are varied his dedication to craftsmanship and fine woodworking remain. He is influenced by Sam Maloof, George Nakashima, among others, but it is the creative work, born of necessity and the moment, that is his greatest inspiration. Joren Traveller is inspired by the whimsy, elegance and grandeur of nature and seesaws back and forth between these to create her sculptures in bronze and ceramic well as in her drawings and paintings. Sculpture is her favorite medium and one she finds therapeutic both mentally and physically. Janice Rhodes is an encaustic artist with a realistic approach. Because encaustics (melted beeswax, resin and pigment) have to be manipulated with a heat gun or propane torch, realism is a challenge to an artist in this medium. But Janice finds this centuries-old method of painting always rewarding with its texture, luminosity and brilliance. Sage Custom Framing and Gallery 834 NW Brooks St. 541-382-5884, Featured artist for November - Ron Raasch - Mixed Media. A retired architect and rancher living in Powell Butte for the last 31 years and counting. His work is diverse in subject matter and medium. There is something for everyone in this offering. Sizes range from miniatures to large paintings of historical subjects and landscapes found in Central Oregon and beyond. Collectors of Ron's art include Robert's Field Redmond,

Facebook and many private collectors. A political cartoonist for 11 years for the Central Oregonian, remnants of his jovial side still find their way into his work. Warning, viewing may cause uncontrollable smiles. Live music will be provided during First Friday reception. Townshend’s Bend Teahouse 835 NW Bond Street Carissa Glenn, 541-312-2001, Artist Charlene Santucci Mountains and Mysteries. Surrounded by working artists her entire life, acrylic painter, Charlene Santucci, an elementary art teacher comes f rom a family with several generations of artists and teachers. Along with studying fine art in college and graduate school, she has travelled to more than 20 countries with performing arts teams. Tumalo Art Company Old Mill District, 541-385-9144 Features Janice Druian. Believing that studying one or two places intently improves the artist’s eye, Janice Druian has focused on two areas—Grey Butte/ Smith Rock at different times of day and all seasons, and the dramatic landscape and clouds around Summer Lake, in her new series of beautiful paintings. An award winning oil painter who is a frequent invitee to prestigious plein air events, Janice is best known for creating landscapes that capture the beauty of the isolated parts of Oregon, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming, California and other western locations. "Surrounded by the vast horizons, tumultuous skies and soul replenishing solitude of the remote west, I am compelled to paint.” She continues to honor the long tradition of western landscape painting through her work.

upporting the Humane Society of Central Oregon (HSCO), Dr. Sue Dougherty, a local vet and owner of Bend Veterinary Specialties, put together a group of local artists and craftspeople last year to do a holiday art sale with all of the artists donating part of their sales to HSCO. Dr. Dougherty, a wildlife photographer, named the event the Holiday Tails Art Fair held this year at the Bend Outlet Mall on December 10 and 11. “As a veterinary internal medicine specialist I see and care for a wide cross section of the dogs and cats in Bend,” shares Dr. Dougherty. “The Humane Society of Central Oregon is a gem of an organization and the people of Bend love and support it. As veterinarians at Bend Veterinary Specialists we do work with the HSCO regularly and support their mission to do the best for the animals in their charge. I have been a spokesperson for Measure 100 Save Endangered Animals Oregon on the ballot in November. “Holiday Tails was put together to support HSCO and to showcase the many amazing local artists with a deep love for animals and nature in our community.” Artists donating to the fair are:


Sue Dougherty Primarily Wildlife and Nature photography, for this show Dougherty is accenting winter scenes from snowy owls to polar bears and many other local and far away images from bluebirds to elephants. Cards artistically tied with raffia or leather and beads or charms are inspirational photocard sets, great for gifts and for special notes. Christine Crosby Fine art photographer specializing in wildlife and nature photography, as well as custom pet portraits. “I love all things in the natural world and hope to inspire others through my imagery both to protect the beautiful world we live in and to help create lasting and important memories to be cherished." Paul Bianchina “I have always loved the look and feel of natural wood, and have worked with it most of my life in many different ways. Currently, all of my work is done either on the lathe or as free-sculpted pieces, including everything from miniature birdhouses to one-of-a-kind cribbage boards and candle holders. I’ve discovered a real passion for working with western juniper from the High Desert. This delightfully quirky

wood has an incredibly rich palette of colors and unusual flowing grain patterns which I truly appreciate!” Cheryl Chapman Whimsical hand painted fused glass bowls, platters, tiles, ornaments and magnets. Wendy Scholz Unique wood-cut ornaments, stained glass home decorations and pop-up greeting cards. Everything designed and handmade by Wendy. Robin Fallon Homemade jams and pickles. Fabric wrapped cord sewn into various shaped baskets and hot pads. Stephanie Morris Handmade soaps "are made with goat milk from our small farm in Bend. We raise Nubians and Saanens that milk enough to feed their ‘kids,’ our family and the majority of our milk goes to help raise other baby animals in Central Oregon that are without their mother and the extra we freeze to make soap! Our soap is made with saponified organic olive, coconut and avocado oils and essential or fragrance oils. We cold process our soap so it take up to four to six weeks to cure a bar.” Kristin Shields “I work in many different media from textiles to mixed media art,

often with an animal theme. I plan to bring small art quilts, acrylic and mixed media paintings, Christmas ornaments and greeting cards printed from my art.” Sarah Hansen Sarah paints a wide array of subjects, concentrating on images from regional and travels abroad, that establish a connection with her viewers. “I tend to focus not on painting perfection, but instead on illustrating flaws, mars, scribbles and textures of life. Out of a chaotic surface, unique beauty emerges. The textures and flaws become colors, patterns and marks layered and rich with meaning. Through my work, I hope to connect to each other and acknowledge that each of us is uniquely layered and beautiful, not in spite of our flaws, but because of them.” Anna McDonald Bee Golden Jewelry tells unique story’s between precious metals, gemstones and the simplicity of this beautiful life. Kristin Wolter Kristin makes a wide arrangement of colorful, braided or knotted fleece dog toys. Ranging from rough and tough, to soft and floppy, these tug toys are an easy stocking stuffer for your dog!

Holiday Show Features SUNRIVER Two Local Artists


uring the holidays, two local artists will exhibit their work at the Sunriver Area Library. Donna Rice creates amazing fabric wall art, while Greg Cotton works in wood to produce beautiful, yet practical pieces. Visit the library during this three-month show November 1 – January 28 and consider purchasing a unique gift for someone on your holiday list. The library is open Tuesday through Saturday. Greg Cotton Woodworking Greg is a retired math teacher and track/cross country coach. As a geometry teacher for many years, he is intrigued by angles and the many different designs created when joining them together. A long time fan of M. C.

Escher and his three-dimensional drawings, Greg often taught his students how to draw Escher’s interlocking figures or tessellations. Greg loves the problem solving and logistics necessary to create a project in wood. He will spend many days visualizing and planning out the building process of the project before making the first cut. Greg and his wife, Nancy, live in Sunriver and enjoy many outdoor activities including golfing, RVing, and fly fishing. You may have seen his artwork displayed at the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver, the Sunriver Art Faire or the Traditions Holiday Marketplace in Sunriver.

Donna Rice Fabric Art As a child Donna was inspired by her grandmother’s and her mother’s talent for knitting, sewing and hand/ machine work. To this day, Donna keeps returning to fiber as a touchstone. Her artistic journey has taken her from sewing bed quilts to creating enjoyable, meaningful and interesting fiber art. The creative process is what Donna enjoys the most and her work has been recognized by awards at local, and regional competitions.

Annual Traditions Celebration Returns to Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery


he Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery joins the annual Traditions celebration with Natural and Whimiscal Creatures featuring Barbara Slater in the upper gallery and Karen Bandy in the lower gallery. The exhibit opens the gallery winter quarter on November 22 through February 24, 2017. Bandy, an artist since childhood, studied at the University of Oregon exploring drawing, painting, sculpture and design. Then in Portland, she created a career in jewelry design but upon moving to Bend in 1987, began a second in painting. “The natural beauty of the sage and juniper, pines and bitterbrush as well as seeing and being seen by animals great and small,” inspired the artist’s acrylic paintings of cottontails in soft pastel hues and gnatcatchers in vivid blue and red. The whimsy and gentleness of the creatures, as conveyed through her art, reveal the magical high desert’s influence not only on her paintings but her spirit. Slater’s oil paintings in the upper gallery (second floor) exemplify her devotion to barnyard animals. The artist shows elegant roosters, soulful cows, playful goats and a barnyard full of endearing and realistic animals. Her affection for and skillful grasp of their natures manifests in her subject’s expressive eyes and her painstakingly accurate imagery. An art minor at Utah State University and a gifted painter with over 40 years of painting in oil, the artist continues to stretch her technique - “to attract the muse.” Her work has appeared in numerous exhibitions including the prestigious Richard Schmid Art Auction in Fort Collins, Colorado. Juried into four consecutive shows beginning in 2008, the 2011 event also featured her artwork in the live auction. The fall quarter exhibition, Fall in the High Desert, featuring landscapes in seasonal hues painted in realistic, expressionistic and abstract genres, now extends through November 17, 2016. Exhibiting artists include JM Brodrick, Joanne Donaca, Mary Rollins and Gary Vincent. Sunriver Resort welcomes the public to these exhibitions and to the Traditions celebration commencing with the Grand Illumination on Friday, November 27. Billye Turner, art consultant and gallery curator, provides additional exhibition information at 541-382-9398 or Betty Gray Gallery, Sunriver Resort 1 Center Dr. Sunriver

Beautiful Colors of the Season at the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver



all doesn’t have a lock on all of the beautiful colors of the season. At the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver, color will glow in the windows by catching the brilliance from featured glass art that is positioned there. You have only to walk by the gallery to enjoy, but it is so much better if you come inside. A really good time to visit would be the Second Saturday Celebration on Saturday, November 12 from 4-6pm. Be prepared to enjoy not only conversation with the resident artists, but have a glass of wine, beer or soda and a bit of something to eat. Glass fusion artist, Marily Badger, has provided a new method for displaying her many art pieces by utilizing custom metal stands. The glass arts fits seamlessly into the metal stands to make a beautiful way to optimize a light source to show off the pieces. Badger’s subject matter has enlarged from her whimsical Hawaiian themed pieces to include some unique nature scenes. The process used by the artist is called kiln casting. Glass casting is the process in which glass objects are cast by directing molten glass into a mold where the glass solidifies. This technique has been used since the Egyptian period. Modern cast glass is formed by a variety of processes such as kiln casting – casting into sand, graphite or metal molds. Some of the artist’s pieces have over 100 hours of slow and careful time in the kiln mostly during the slump phase. One of Badger’s featured pieces is 17 x 18” and called Dragon Fly Mist”It was hand cast with hand cut pieces on a streaky, fully fused piece of glass. Stained glass artist, Becky Henson, is new to the gallery this year. Already her beautiful pieces are a favorite. The artist uses more traditional techniques to produce pieces with a modern flare. Central Oregon is an obvious inspiration seen many of her pieces- especially her circular piece called Three Sisters. As with the incredible lighting and views of Central Oregon, no two pieces of the artist’s work are the same. Some pieces evoke a strong sense of quilting with the play of shape, pattern and color that is so attractive on fabric it lends itself beautifully to glass jewel tones. Most recently Henson has created windows with secondhand items such as bevels from old lamps or old window frames, giving the glass a wonderful new interpretation.

(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13) making Hood Avenue an arts district, is quick to recognize the strong collaborative spirit in Sisters. Brockway also a partner at Hood Avenue, is an accomplished illustrator, product designer, painter and potter. She notes, “I have never seen a community that loves its children more than the town of Sisters. Their collective vision is to help each other, share tools and knowledge freely. A place with an open heart and deep compassion. Using art as a way to express both happiness and grief…[it] can be more valuable than years of counseling.” Kelley Salber, a local book artist remarks, “I find the Sister’s community to be very cohesive— all working toward a bigger picture, a common goal of bringing greater exposure to our local discover our uniqueness and excellence in our expression.” That collaborative spirit is shown in the way that Hood Avenue Art Gallery operates almost as a cooperative, a gallery where the owners have an equal say in the vision of the space. JoAnn Burgess, a fellow partner and landscape/plein air pastel artist,

reveals, “We share the workload of the business side of the gallery and [in return] have the opportunity to show and sell our art.” That kind of artistic freedom can be rare in an ever evolving society where artists feel the pressure to mass produce whatever sells. Reflecting on the unique sellers environment in Sisters, Brockway adds, “We wanted a place that we could try to develop our art instead of mass producing what we already knew [that sold]. We saw a greater vision, to help bring the artists and galleries together, raising each other up.” Sisters may then be the ideal setting for propping up artists. With its unique location at the foot of the mountains and the gateway to the High Desert, the rolling summer tourist season yields those willing to spend in order to bring mementos back from Central Oregon. A unique reminder of their visit in the paintings, pottery, jewelry or other artworks made available by these creative artists who are able to serve these demands. Again, Katherine Taylor reflects, “I believe that good art requires keen observation and it’s my

understanding that everyone’s truth is different. So naturally, my art is not going to be for everybody, but it does have to be for me, at least during the process of producing it. After that, I don’t own it anymore.” She describes the relationship between the artist and the buyer in this way “The finished canvas is always content just to sit and wait patiently until its new owner comes along, someone who sees it and is startled by how much of their own truth has been seen and depicted in paint. Then, they gratefully take the painting home. That how it works. Art collecting is all about the resonance.” Such is the perfect marriage between the artist and the art appreciator, found quite often in this thriving and artisanal community, that is only growing. “It’s exhilarating to see Sisters grow into a dedicated art community,” Taylor says,” It can only become better.” And so it seems this small, western town is cueing up for even grander things. The creative energy doesn’t seem to be yielding and that’s a very good thing. CASCADE J A N U A R Y

Currents • Bend’s Best Outside Dining

Newly Refurbished Restaurant Amazingly Pleasing


by LINDEN GROSS, One Stop Writing Shop the thigh and drumstick done confit-style (i.e. slowly poached in its own rendered fat) and the breast seared on a flattop. I wish the skin had been a little crispier and the breast a little rarer, but the meat was succulent and not masked with a heavy, sickly-sweet sauce. “I spent years hunting duck,” Sous-Chef Bryan TK said when he visited our table. “If done right, it doesn’t need a lot of assistance.” I tasted the Northwest Seafood Stew, which proved to be an extravaganza of salmon, clams, prawns, halibut, calamari and scallops. The dish sounds like Cioppino, but has a lighter, saffron-infused tomato broth. Delicious. I wasn’t the one to actually order my favorite dish of the evening—the New York strip. But when a juicy steak tastes like it’s been charbroiled on an outside grill, who can blame a girl for helping herself?


re you the kind who loves to dine al fresco—whether in the sun or under a toasty heat lamp? If you answered yes, then you owe it to yourself to check out Currents, the Riverhouse on the Deschutes’ newly renamed and revamped restaurant.

Lovely grilled vegetables, acorn squash and decadent crème fraiche mashed potatoes accompanied our meals. Kudos on that front. We finished up with a shared flight of shot-glass desserts. What a great idea! We each got a couple of tiny tastes of key lime pie with coconut, two kinds of cheesecake and a chocolate mousse brownie. As good as those were, next time I’m trying the peach-bourbon shake—even if I am sitting outside under a heat lamp in my parka.

If you ever went to Crossings, the old incarnation, just wipe that from your mind. The only thing the totally renovated Currents has in common with its predecessor is the fact that it’s perched on the banks of the Deschutes River, just abovea set of wonderfully noisy rapids. My two friends and I sat at our river-side table just as the sun was setting. Within minutes, we were sipping cocktails in front of a dancing flame emanating from our fire table. Why don’t I come here more often? I asked myself. I would have the same thought several times that evening. Our meal kicked off with a wedge of savory, blue cheese, New York-style cheesecake in a polenta crust. Think creamy fluff with an undercurrent (pun intended) of blue cheese schmeared on charred slices of baguette. Did I mention the roasted heads of garlic, the chutney and the balsamic reduction drizzle? Come on! The cheesecake proved to be a hard act to follow. The steamed clams with chorizo were tender and tasty, but the broth lacked that wow factor. Although the salads sounded good—especially the roasted beet and quinoa salad with goat cheese and the traditional wedge salad—we moved directly to the entrees. I was sorely tempted by the Australian Wagyu tomahawk chop special, but two pounds of beef, even split two to three ways, just sounded daunting. Next time. I opted for one of the other specials, half a duck cooked two ways—

It's All in the Pipes


Profiling Greg Byers

is email tag says it all. Trumpet Greg, as in Greg Byers, has built a life driven by his desire to play music. At age 11, the Bend native and student of music teacher Mrs. Brosterhous, bought his first horn with money earned delivering newspapers. By high school, inspired by The Tijuana Brass, the teenager had launched The Lonely Bulls dance band, playing professionally at local lodges and even the state fair. As a senior he was chosen to participate in America’s Youth in Concert Band and played at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and in five European countries. It was 1973 when Byers enrolled at COCC and took his first serious trumpet lessons from Jerry Yahna, the conductor of the newly formed Central Oregon Symphony. At 18, Byers became first chair trumpet of the Symphony and recalls that “… it was a very small orchestra, more like a chamber group, with many college-age musicians.” 1975 brought a new venue for Byers - the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band in Cherry Point, North Carolina, where he continued to hone his trumpet skills at the Armed Forces School of Music in Norfolk.


November2016 |

After the Marines, Byers stayed in North Carolina for 22 years doing “every kind of horrible job” he had to do to support his music. Only this time the music was electric bass and his tenor voice doing rock and country music. When Byers returned to Bend in 1996 he picked up his trumpet again. He was recording horn arrangements for Mark Kershner. Before long he was playing with the Cascade Brass, where he met Central Oregon Symphony (COS) trumpet chair Jeff Briggs. It was Briggs who brought him back into the Symphony as an extra for horn-heavy pieces like the T-Bone Concerto and Pines of Rome. One of Byers’ most memorable events was playing with the Bend High School orchestra for Bye Bye Birdie with COS Conductor Michael Gesme on 2nd trumpet. Today Trumpet Greg is busier than ever playing in the Summit Express Jazz Band, the Cascade Brass Quintet, Soul Searches, Train Wreck, Tunes Inc. and pick-up gigs with visiting groups like the Temptations. And on the side, when he’s not playing, he teaches trumpet…of course.


Elviss Simmons & The Memphis Strutters The Roadies Musical at Old Stone


s rock musicals come through Central Oregon with increasing popularity we see a lot of titles done elsewhere and done before: Hedwig And The Angry Inch, Evil Dead The Musical and The Rock of Ages to name a few. While these titles are well executed and received, some do feel it is time for something new. For those with an appetite,, as of yet unsatisfied, Gary Spinrad productions is happy to introduce you to Elviss Simmons & The Memphis Strutters.

and destructive force known as Elviss who is their last chance to have a job in performance.

Long ago in a poorly kept laboratory the DNA of Elvis Presley and Gene Simmons was tragically mixed and resulted in the test tube baby that grew to be Elviss Simmons. He possesses all of his father’s weaknesses and none of their strengths. With the crippling drug addiction prone personality of Elvis along with the ego and litigious disposition of Gene, Elviss never stood a chance at a normal life.

When it comes to Elviss needing his hourly fix, or juggling the delicate and irrational egos of the crew, Simon is the diseased ring leader that keeps the circus tent up.

As the story goes: Elviss barely gets through another night of rock star life thanks to his crew which is more hostage than loyal follower. One of his band members is literally a Mormon on Mission who is being held hostage to play guitar for the band as he had the misfortune of knocking on Elviss’ door just as the previous guitarist overdosed on cold medication. The keyboardist for the band pretends to be blind because he believes that will improve his chances of becoming famous. Persephone the prima donna of the group was at one time a prized opera singer until pending litigation confined her to United States soil permanently. All these characters and more are trapped in their careers with the animated

The ensemble is held together by Simon Garland, a roadie who has been doing his job way too long and is borderline enslaved by Elviss and their destructive codependent relationship. Simon was born into show business as he is the forgotten son of Judy Garland.

Audiences will be head-banging, laughing and cheering as this motley crew makes it through another night on tour where they are still legally allowed to play. This show is based off of a character created by Gary Spinrad that originally premiered at the Whiskey Go Go in Los Angeles. Original lyrics and dialogue written by local showman Jake Woodmansee. Many shows call themselves unique, this show is a precious individual snowflake that couldn’t be melted by hellfire. Fans of Elvis Presley and Kiss are sure to enjoy. Tickets at and will be available for showings on October 29 and November 3-5. All shows begin at 8pm and held at Old Stone Church, 157 NW Franklin Ave., Bend. Tickets purchased on line or by patrons who attend in Elvis or Kiss gear will be $15. All other admission prices are $20.

The Milk Carton Kids


The Ever-Charming Anti-Folk Revivalists

our years ago, singers/guitarists Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan made their Central Oregon debut at the Tower opening for the Punch Brothers. Thursday, November 3 at 7:30pm, presented by the Tower Theatre Foundation, they return as a Grammynominated duo redefining and expanding the entire folk tradition.

Life & Songs of Emmylou Harris, among luminaries including Kris Kristofferson, Mavis Staples, Alison Krauss and Harris herself. Their combination of the Everly Brothers’ vocals and the Avett Brothers’ lyricism with the sly humor of Demetri Martin is sure to delight traditionalists and newcomers alike. Tony Furtado will provide the opening set. Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef.

Prepare to be impressed by a refreshing and understated evening of virtuosity and sophistication,or as Garrison Keillor says, “Absolute geniuses in close-harmony.” In addition to a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album, The Milk Carton Kids won Duo/Group of the Year at the Americana Music Awards in 2014. This year, they received a standing ovation for their performance at the tribute concert The

Vienna Boys Choir

A 500-year Tradition Under 5 Feet Tall


hursday, November 17 at 7:30pm the Vienna Boys Choir returns to the Tower Theatre to showcase their 500-year tradition of timeless music and angelic harmony. Presented by the Tower Theatre Foundation, their spirited performance features everything from Austrian folk songs and traditional Christmas carols, to classical masterpieces and songs from across the globe. With a history dating back to 1296, the Vienna Boys Choir has been associated with many of the world’s great composers, including Mozart, Bruckner and Salieri. In addition, Franz Schubert, Joseph Haydn and Michael Haydn were themselves choristers.


November2016 |

However, with their broad repertoire, a Vienna Boys Choir performance is never just a concert for classical aficionados; it’s a musical event that appeals to all ages. “I suspect that these two-dozen fresh-scrubbed youths could have charmed the capacity audience had they sung the cars-for-sale ads on Craigslist, but there was so much more to the concert than this,” wrote the Toronto Star. “These boys brought along some very impressive musicianship as well as entertainment value.” November 17, 7:30pm Tower Theatre 541-317-0700


Sister Folk Festival Strings Program Offered

isters Folk Festival (SFF), in partnership with the Sisters School District is offering an after-school strings program as part of the Studio to School (S2S) initiative. The goal is to introduce 4th6th-grade students to the exciting world of violin and cello, and to potentially integrate these instruments into its already popular Americana Project programming. “As part of a year-three goal of the S2S initiative, we are working with Sisters Elementary School music teacher Shelly Hicks to start this program. Shelly has over 15 years playing violin in a variety of settings, and is excited to share that experience with students in the District. In providing support for the visual arts and music education K-8, we are building foundational skills that will blossom as students move through the District on their educational journey,” says Brad Tisdel, creative director of Sisters Folk Festival and project lead for the grant.


The program will touch on many musical styles, and primarily use the O’Connor Method of string playing. A few of the goals of the program are: to learn the fundamentals of stringed-instrument technique, to play as a team in an ensemble format, encourage creativity through improvisation, and to expand students’ thinking of Americana musical styles, from Irish and Scottish fiddle, to folk, jazz and classical, so that the student musicians become versatile and appreciate the many genres of music that are possible while playing a stringed instrument. The club will be offered for two eight-week classes, and will run Tuesdays/Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30pm in the Sisters Middle School band room. Dates January 10-March 1, 2017. Registration is with the lead secretaries at the elementary and middle schools and cost is $90 per student. Scholarships are offered through SFF and the Americana Project Arts Outreach Scholarship Fund and can be accessed through Family Access Network. 541-549-4979
