Creativity, Culture & Innovation in Central Oregon

V

Notes Pamela fromHulse theAndrews Publisher

isit Bend has designated October as Tenth Month – a creative ideas month – highlighting innovative and entrepreneurial programming in Bend. Tenth Month Bend is a month-long celebration of brave ideas and innovation in art, film, marketing, technology and design. The Oregon Cultural Trust is launching October with Days of Culture (October 1-8) that showcases the diverse ways Oregonians experience culture. Creativity is abundant in our High Desert communities. More than $16 million are spent annually on the arts in Central Oregon (the results of a member survey of more than thirty creative organizations in the local Arts & Culture Alliance). More than a million arts and culture experiences were generated by these organizations, ranging from participating in an art class or workshop, attending a performance, lecture, or exhibition or actively engaged in the region’s creative economy. We all need some level of creativity and innovation. We all need the stimulating impact art and culture have in every aspects of our lives. Here in Central Oregon we have a diverse arts community enhancing cultural tourism, creating jobs, bringing enjoyment and expansion to our lives. Steve Jobs said that creativity is just connecting things. “When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” Jobs would be impressed with the creativity and ingenuity developed here in Central Oregon. The proof can be seen at these favorite events that fill October each year from BendFilm and Bend Venture Conference to Bend Design and SWIVEL. And the newest addition,Venture Out Festival. The BendFilm Festival (October 6-9), now in its 13th year, is a celebration of independent cinema. BendFilm is an inspiring, passionate and economically beneficial event embraced by the community in a pretty big way. An independent film festival that was once a dot on the radar is now one of the top fifty film festivals in the world named by MovieMaker Magazine. The festival is dedicated to supporting brave and talented filmmakers while educating communities about the value of independent art. With venues sprinkled throughout downtown Bend, you’ll often find the filmmakers hanging with the audience while hosted by local families in their homes. The SWIVEL Digital + Creative Marketing conference (October 1011) is a two-day boutique marketing education experience held at the iconic Tower Theatre, Oxford Hotel and the DoubleTree by Hilton. It’s said to be “so off-the-hook awesome that it’s like the Big Bang of business-building information, presented by some of the most knowledgeable experts in the universe…and that’s putting it modestly.” Thought leaders from around the globe gather together to exchange ideas and how-tos about the latest trends in digital marketing, search, social media and creativity. It’s a must for anyone who conducts business via the web and wants to not only keep up with the pace, but stay a step ahead of the pack. Venture Out Festival (October 12) of Bend Outdoor Worx (BOW), Central

Oregon’s outdoor industry accelerator, will stage an evening of innovation in the outdoor marketplace. Produced by BOW and the Oregon Outdoor Alliance (OOA), the Venture Out Festival is the first venture event solely focused on the outdoor industry. The event will feature two awards - the $10,000 Breakout Award presented by Bend Radio Group and HydroFlask and the $100,000 Ready to Roll investment award presented by Trigen Investments. The largest Angel Conference in the Pacific Northwest, Bend Venture Conference (October 13-14) spotlights entrepreneurship and innovation. Attendees play an active role in determining the Early Stage winner, with investments, awards and prizes close to $1 million given away at last year’s event. Embrace creativity in anything and everything. This is the ethos of Bend Design Conference (October 20-21). A celebration of design culture in the modern world, the two-day event will be filled with conversations, tours, interactive workshops and hands on exhibits all designed to disrupt the norm. Be brave. Be inspired. There’s no excuse not to get your imagination expanded during October...share the experiences, innovation and reflections at these thought provoking events.

Visiting Scholar Discusses Japanese Woodblock Prints

T

he Nancy R. Chandler Visiting Scholar Program of the Central Oregon Community College Foundation is presenting Ukiyo-e: Japanese Pop Culture and ‘The Floating World by Dr. Ann Wetherell, visiting assistant professor of art history at Willamette University. The event is slated for 7pm on Tuesday, October 11 in Wille Hall in the Coats Campus Center on the Bend Campus. Wetherell will discuss and explore the social and political context of Japanese woodblock print spanning three centuries. This program complements the current exhibit on display at A6, Opening Japan: Three Centuries of Japanese Prints.

Nature Writing LITERARY Intensive WORD Workshop

T

he Spanish word mustengo means “ownerless beast” and aptly describes the free-roaming and iconic mustangs of the American West. Unharnessed and running wild, mustangs represent strength, freedom and endurance. These attributes will serve as inspiration for writers to let their prose and poetry loose during a three-day Nature Writing Intensive with local author and poet Ellen Waterston, Writing Wild Horses, a collaboration between Waterston’s Writing Ranch and the High Desert Museum, will be held October 17-19 at the Museum.

During the Edo period (1603-1868) in Japan, the rising middle class favored a new art form— woodblock prints. Ukiyo-e, or pictures of the Floating World,’ as the pop culture of the day, depicting the pleasures and interests of up-tothe-minute urban life — including the world of kabuki actors, beautiful courtesans, dramatic and heartbreaking tales and famous sites popularized by the mania for travel.

“Mustangs are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West,” said Christina Cid, Ph. D., director of programs at the High Desert Museum. “These incredible creatures have inspired many works of literary and visual arts.”

Wetherell is an art historian specializing in Asian art with a research emphasis on Chinese painting. She currently teaches courses in the art and architecture of China, Japan and South Asia at Willamette University in Salem. She serves on the board of Asian Studies on the Pacific Coast and the Northwest China Council. She earned her bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees from the University of Oregon.

A reception and lecture - Seeking Solutions Part 1: Mustang Population Managementwill follow the last session of the workshop. Workshop participants may invite a guest to the reception and lecture on October 19 for free. A panel of speakers, including Julie Weikel, DVM and Lisa Grant, Rangeland Management Specialist with the BLM, will address experiences and research about management of mustang populations on public lands. This program starts at 6:00 pm and costs $3 for members and $7 for non-members. Cost for the three-day workshop is $220.

This program is co-presented by A6 (Atelier 6000), a publicly accessible printmaking and book arts studio, which engages artists, teachers, students and the greater community with workshops, art talks, critiques and exhibits. Additional sponsors include Brooks Resources, Deschutes Brewery, ASCOCC and OSU-Cascades Student Fee Committees. Tickets are $10 at www.cocc.edu/foundation/vsp. Students are free with ID.

Fall Book Sale

Friends of the Bend Libraries is hosting its Fall Book Sale on Saturday, October 1 from 11am-4pm with a Members Only Sale from 9-11am. Sunday, October 2 from 1-4pm is the Bag Sale, with most books sold in bulk for only $3 per grocery bag.  The Friends offer a large selection of adult and children’s books and all proceeds benefit the Bend Libraries.

Participants will draw inspiration from guest speakers and Museum naturalists, as well as the Museum’s mustang, Sage, while exploring writing techniques and indulging in the literal and metaphorical aspects of these wild creatures. Class size is limited to 15.

Bend resident Waterston is a poet, author and literary arts advocate. Her most recent title, Vía Láctea: A Woman of a Certain Age Walks the Camino, 2013, is a verse novel based on walking the Camino de Santiago in 2012. She has been awarded numerous writing awards, fellowships and residencies and her work has appeared in many journals and reviews. She founded the Writing Ranch in 2000 and is dedicated to supporting the craft and careers of writers through workshops, retreats, and one-on-one tutorials.

A Classic Mel Brooks/Gene Wilder Movie Turned Musical Takes the Stage in October

S

FILM & THEATRE

tage Right Productions and Bits & Pieces Custom Framing presents A New Mel Brooks Musical: Young Frankenstein at 2nd Street Theater October 28 through November 12.

The musical is based on the beloved Mel Brooks movie that premiered in 1974, Young Frankenstein, starring Gene Wilder, Terry Garr, Chloris Leachman, Marty Feldman and Peter Boyle. Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds. “We’re excited and honored to pay homage to both the movie and to Gene Wilder, who just recently passed away,” says Producer Sandy Klein. The show is directed by Patricia West-Del Ruth and features a star studded cast including Gary Fulkerson as Frederick (Spamalot), Kimmie Neff as Inga (A Chorus Line), Karen Sipes as Frau Blucher (Avenue Q, Les Miserables and who is also the musical director), John Kish as Igor (A Chorus Line, Next to Normal) and Jaime Speed as Elizabeth (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee). Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sunday matinees at 3pm. There will be a Bier Garten and an opening night reception and costume contest on Friday October 28 from 6:30-7:30pm. Stage Right Productions is a nonprofit organization that runs 2nd Street Theater. Founded in 2011, Stage Right Productions’ mission is to cultivate the performing arts and provide a venue, support, entertainment and education to both the creative individuals and audiences in Central Oregon.

Her designs Oh Dorothy, My Dorothy by Karen Bandy 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.

Chen’s professional career focuses on nature and wildlife art in both sculpture and painting. He brought years of experience from his home in China. Moving to the Pacific Northwest, and settling in Springfield, Oregon, inspired in Dan his love of wildlife. He depicts the indigenous creatures from the region in beautiful bronzes. Pickerd is a woodworker turned sculptor who uses the lathe to transform chunks of alabaster and wood into vessel shapes. The stone, held in a traditional lathe (a Hegner VB 36 Master Bowl turner) and worked almost exclusively with hand tools, is trimmed with exotic hardwoods on the rim and the base of each vessel. “My compositions include elements drawn from many cultures, relying heavily on the pottery created by the early Pueblo people. As a person of Native American heritage, many of the vessels I carve are inspired by the vessels of tribal America. Some are simply playful.

Painting from an early age, the artist created unusual imagery influenced by dreams; the first artwork she sold was to her the sixth grade teacher - a rendering of apples picking people of all ages off trees. Her dreams also influence the vivid abstract colors and surreal patterns of her paintings. Additionally attracted to the vibrant colors of Haitian art and the Lowbrow genre, known as pop surrealism, her acrylic art often displays surreal images such as the white, folded Origami birds of Earth Day. Popular for her striking paintings commissioned by Visit Bend for the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection, Phallon’s art also currently appears at their office \in

Julia Kennedy started beading after she moved to Seattle in 1995 and needed a rainy day hobby. Since then, she has sold her bead-woven jewelry at dozens of juried art shows around the Northwest. She moved to Bend in 2003 and has branched out to create jewelry using leather, wire and soutache techniques. Now retired, her professional career included ten years as a journalist in New York and over twenty years as a marketing manager for high tech firms in New York and Seattle. Linda Heisserman works in porcelain clay because it reminds her of a canvas. Each piece is thrown on the potter’s wheel. When the piece is leather hard, she starts carving with a single edge razor blade and dental tools. Linda uses a light green celadon or blue celadon for her carved pieces Linda Heisserman because the glaze pools in the deeper grooves and pulls off the higher part, which quietly accentuates the carving. Linda strives for her pieces to be both functional and special enough to bring a smile to a person’s face and eyes. Primarily known as a plein air artist, Sue LyonManley’s current body of work focuses on taking her plein air work to a new level in her painting career – creating impressionistic-to-abstract images based on work done on-site.

En plein air is a French expression which means in the open air, and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. The Plein Air Painters of Oregon is a regional organization of artists who are passionate about painting on location. Members enjoy the camaraderie and security of painting with others in a group environment while endeavoring Summers Bloom by Marty Stewart to produce the luminous quality of out-of-doors light in their art. These artists brave cold, heat, wind, mosquitoes and more to capture a fleeting moment in time. Founded in 2003, the group meets for frequent paint-outs during the warmer months of the year.

Using acrylic on cradled Steamboat Steelhead by Susan Luckey Higdon, birch board, Susan’s paintings capture the complex interactions of color and pattern in what she describes as natural abstractions. “My actual rendering style is impressionistic and representational. But I like to abstract the image using composition—by framing the scene differently so the viewer is sometimes not immediately sure what they are seeing”.

NOVELIST CHITRA SPEAK IN BEND

entral Oregon Community College (COOC) will host award-winning Indian American author, poet and activist, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, as a part of its continuing Visiting Scholar Program on Friday, November 4 at 6pm at Wille Hall in the Coats Campus Center on COCC Bend campus. Divakaruni will speak on how her emigration from India to the United States turned her into a writer as she tried to make sense of the very different world in which she found herself. She will share her immigrant experience through the themes found in her books: loneliness, the desire to conform, the excitement of a new country, acts of racism, loss of family and new possibilities as a woman. Divakaruni will be available for book signing after the event.

THE ARTS

Her books have been translated into 29 languages and her work has appeared in hundreds of magazines and anthologies. She’s best known for the New York Times bestseller, One Amazing Thing and The Mistress of Spices, which was made into a Hollywood film. She’s won an American Book Award and a Light of India award. Divakaruni teaches creative writing at the University of Houston and writes for both adults and children. In 2015, she was chosen by the Economic Times for their list of Twenty Most Influential Global Indian Women. Her latest novel, Before We Visit the Goddess , came out in April 2016. The event is co-presented by COCC Multicultural Activities and generously sponsored by Brooks Resources, Deschutes Brewery, Deschutes Public Library, Old Mill District, The Bend Bulletin, ASCOCC and OSU-Cascades Student Fee Committee.

SUE LYON-MANLEY A PASSION FOR PLEIN AIR

L

ong-term Bend resident and local artist Sue Lyon-Manley is passionate about her environment and the personal relationship she has with it. Lyon-Manley’s work reflects an emotional reaction to her surroundings. “Early in my painting career, my mentors told me to paint what I love and that my emotions would translate to my paintings, giving them a unique signature,” explains Lyon-Manley. “I have always felt a strong emotional relationship with the Central Oregon landscape which has nourished me as an artist and outdoorsman. When I allowed my physical and intellectual sensations to fuse with my painting, I began creating impressionistic landscapes that I find increasingly interesting beyond the literal interpretation that my earlier work suggests.” Lyon-Manley’s landscapes are primarily painted ‘plein air’ (on-site) and her current body of work focuses on taking her plein air work to a new level in her painting career – creating impressionistic-toabstract images based on work done on-site. Combining the emotional

sensations of working in the field with in-depth studio work, Sue is able to translate those emotions into a deeper connection with the world that surrounds her. Lyon-Manley competes in local plein air competitions and most recently in the Driggs Digs Plein Air competition in Idaho. Lyon-Manley is a founding partner and active member of the Red Chair Gallery in downtown Bend, as well as active member of the Plein Air Painters of Oregon and Sagebrushers Art Society. She is the owner and founder of Cascade Fine Art Workshops, which exposes her to national and internationally known ‘modern master’ artists that continue to challenge her knowledge and exposure to art outside of Central Oregon. Lyon-Manley’s most recent work is showcased in the October Featured Artist show at the Red Chair Gallery, Bend. www.redchairgallerybend.com Oregon’s Only Arts Magazine Since 1995 | October 2016

PIECING TOGETHER MOSAICS

CONTEMPORARY MOSAIC ART SUMMIT BRINGS MASTERS OF MOSAIC ART TO ASHLAND. by MAGDALENA BOKOWA AE Feature Writer

J

ust as the fallen leaves of autumn create a colorful mosaic on Oregon’s pathways, so will there be a bright array of premier art on display in Ashland this fall. A collection of works made from colored glass, stones and other materials will be in the annual Contemporary Mosaic Art (CMA) Summit. The event held October 6-9 will feature masters of mosaic arts teaching, exhibiting and showcasing their works. Attendees will have opportunities to take part in such workshops as Layered Glass Mosaics and the Business of Mosaics. The event is a crucial platform in connecting mosaic artists together, one of which is Rochelle Schueler, a professional mosaic artist from Bend, who has over thirty years of construction and art experience. Schueler is known for her pieces throughout Bend, and is noted for her colorful mosaic rendition of the RESTORE sign. She speaks with Cascade A&E about the importance of this event. Why Mosaic Art? Glass and tile which are my main materials, reflect light with a luminosity unlike any other material, such as painting and also make it a great art form for being viewed at a distance. These materials are also very durable and have low maintenance for an art form which makes it extremely long lasting. The other thing that sets it apart from other art forms is its functionality. The part I love about mosaics is that it allows me to create a lot of movement allowing me to create flow, rhythm and feeling in my pieces. Can you describe the process for creating something so intricate? Hmmm…well, some artists create a design layout which we call a cartoon. It is the bare bone structure of the piece. Then the laying patterns are decided for each area. The structure is filled in first followed by the background areas. Material processing is done according to what type of laying pattern is chosen. Different artists have different personalities which show through in their work. Some are precise and some are very “loose” in their laying styles. Other artists let the materials form the design and will process a bunch of materials and choose and place pieces by intuition and feeling. What is the importance of an event such as this for artists and Oregonians alike to experience?

So much can be garnered from meeting, talking with and listening to the presentations given by the masters to help take your personal art to the next level. There will be five classes available and some presentations from some nationally and internationally known masters in the mosaic art community. This is the largest gathering of mosaic artists outside of the Society of American Mosaic Artists

(SAMA) annual national convention. The CMA Summit in Ashland was started to celebrate Mosaic Art by bringing together national and international mosaic artists to share, educate and inspire the mosaic art community and increase public awareness regarding contemporary and historic mosaics. The public can see works of mosaic art at either the Bits & Pieces mosaic art sale at the Belle Fiore winery or the month long juried exhibition at Southern Oregon UniversityThorndike Gallery. Can you describe some of the artists that will be taking part and the value that they bring to this event? One artist, Sonia King, is a legend in the mosaic art world and will be the Keynote Speaker. Her award-winning mosaic art is exhibited nationally

and internationally and represented in private, public and corporate collections. Sonia’s mosaic, Depthfinder, is the first by an American to enter the permanent collection of contemporary mosaic art at the Museo d’Arte della Città di Ravenna, Italy. She was awarded special recognition in the 2010 International Prize for Mosaic Art and Architecture in Italy and also won two Spectrum Awards for mosaic walls at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. She has also been featured on HGTV’s popular show, Modern Masters, and in numerous books. Another master, Julie Richey, works in diverse mosaic media where she has completed many residential, commercial and public art projects in the U.S, Italy, Mexico and Spain. In addition, her fine art mosaic sculptures have been included in juried shows throughout the U.S and in Italy, including the international Opere del Mondo exhibition as part of the 2011 Ravenna Mosaico Biennial and the Society of American Mosaic Artists Mosaic Arts International. She won Best 3-D Mosaic La Corrente, a sculptural dress mosaic; Juror’s Choice for Night Shirt and Members’ Choice for L’Ambasciatrice. What should the public know about this event? Why should they support it? This is a rare event to have this assemblage of this caliber of mosaic artists in Oregon. From the masters to regionally acclaimed artists to beginners, there is something for everyone. The vision of the Summit is to excite, thrill and delight mosaic artists and invite others to explore the colorful world of mosaic art. The networking I have done at this summit has led to so many connections in the mosaic art world and the presentations and classes have advanced my ability and understanding of mosaic art that could only happen at a gathering of likeminded artists. The CMA Mosaic Summit runs October 6-9 in Ashland Oregon. Tickets include all meals, presentations, artist’s reception, gift bags and options to present works. Tickets can be purchased at www. contemporarymosaicartsummit.com Rochelle Schueler is a bend based artist and owner of Wild Rose Artworks. www.wildroseartworks.com


WILDFIRE CERAMICS SHOWCASE CLAY GUILD OF THE CASCADES

C

by JANET MATSON for AE

eramic arts patrons from Central Oregon are eagerly anticipating the 2016 Wildfire Ceramic Showcase. This art event is presented annually by artists from the Clay Guild of the Cascades. The exhibit and sale will be held on November 5 and 6 at Highland Elementary School on Newport Avenue in Bend. Here's what the show's loyal patrons have to say about the event they look forward to every year. "As a collector of ceramics, the Wildfire Ceramics Showcase offers me the opportunity to purchase work directly from the artists, getting to know a little about the artist behind the art. I enjoy watching the demonstrations by the artists, allowing me to see the work that goes into each piece since I am not one to get my hands into the clay,” offers Pamela Burns of Bend. “I use all of the different pieces that I have and use some of them daily. They are beautiful when I set them on my table. The more I learn about the pottery, the more I appreciate the handmade bowls as I eat my soup. I enjoy this show because of the variety and novelty of the pieces. I also enjoy seeing how the artists work progresses each year.” Erik Rustand of Bend adds, “My wife Annie and I have always enjoyed attending the annual Wildfire pottery show. There are numerous booths displaying various artists’ work, a hands-on kids clay area, instructional classes and even raffle drawings! With three young girls (all seven and under), this event is fun for our entire family.” The talented local artist theme is prevalent throughout the show. “I enjoying going to the Wildfire every year to see and buy from local artists,” said Jeanne deBons of Bend. “Over the years I have come to know some of them and enjoy seeing their new work. It is fun to give presents to people that are made by Bend artists.” The collectors are also intrigued by the pottery remark Jan and Robert Brockway of Bend. "We’ve been collecting Eleanor Murphey’s work for some time now and we never fail to fall in love with another piece (or two!) when we see her at the Wildfire show (one of our favorite art shows). We love the originality and beauty of her work and it all works so well in our home. But we also love that her pieces are very usable: not just art on the wall, but a work of art to put on the dinner table (like our gorgeous water pitcher surrounded with leafy lemons or

THE ARTS

pinecone tray – very Bend – that we use for serving cheese and crackers)." Favorite artists are surrounded by fans, including Kim Leahy of Bend, "My Bend Bella mug that Dori Kite made for me is a wonderful reminder to play as well as work. I love the way the mug feels in my hand as well as being very high quality.” A customer of Peter Roussel comments, “I like the depth and richness of color your work has. The elegant use of form draws me into the surface. I enjoy having some of your work. They make me feel happy and peaceful,” says Mary Howlett of Palo Alto, California. "I have purchased quite a few lovely articles from various artists at the Wildfire Ceramic Showcase,” reports Shari Hogshead of Bend. “My two favorites are by Janet Matson and feature her artistic flowers. They are both practical and decorative. I display them in my home and use them when the size is appropriate for the food I am serving. Everyone comments on them. I love using them and seeing them in my home.” Helen Poindexter has been a patron of the Wildfire ceramic show for many years. "My collection is extensive and each year I like to purchase from new artists as well as my old favorites.” Helen enjoys talking to the artists and watching the demonstrations. “It is fascinating to watch these people make marvelous things from a lump of clay and the kids clay table is always entertaining.” Asked if she uses the pottery her response was “Yes, every day.” As Designer William Morris said in the 19th century, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”’ Wildfire Ceramics are both. Come and see for yourself. Every time I use a piece of pottery I think of the potter that made it. Wildfire Ceramic Showcase allows us to have that connection with art and artist.” At Wildfire one can find a wide variety of ceramic art from functional cups, bowls, platters and casseroles, to fine sculpture, wall pieces, bird houses, jewelry and even whimsical monsters. "I always look forward to Wildfire because it highlights the strength of the ceramics community in our region,” concludes Sandy Anderson of Bend. “The quality of work is outstanding, and the sense of camaraderie is felt from the welcome when entering the building to the ease of checkout. Showcasing excellent hand-crafted work, Wildfire keeps us in touch with our roots.” Oregon’s Only Arts Magazine Since 1995 | October 2016

ANSEL ADAMS Masterworks exhibition features artist’s favorites

I

t’s called The Museum Set, 48 stunning black and white photographs selected by Ansel Adams (1902-1984) himself, represents the best of his life’s work. Adams captured numerous iconic landscapes in his photographs, highlighting the interplay between light and shadow and the drama and beauty of natural environments.

career that spanned more than five decades, Adams became one of America’s most beloved landscape photographers and one of its more respected environmentalists. There are few artists whose name and works represent the extraordinary level of popular recognition and artistic achievement as that of Ansel Adams. The collection of photographs was donated to Turtle Bay Exploration Park, a 300-acre cultural complex located in Northern California. The traveling exhibition is organized by Turtle Bay Exploration Park, in Redding, California. Exhibition tour management is by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California.

The exhibition includes many of Adams’ most famous and best-loved photographs, representing the full breath of his work. The Ansel Adams: Masterworks exhibition opens Saturday, October 22 at the High Desert Museum. “Ansel Adams was not only a master of his craft, but an artist, educator, innovator and writer who profoundly influenced the course of 20th century photography as an art form,” said High Desert Museum Executive Director Dana Whitelaw, Ph. D.

The exhibit is made possible by Cascade A&E and Horizon Broadcasting Group, with support from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.

The exhibit includes elegant detailed images of nature, architectural studies, portraits and breathtaking landscapes, as well as a portrait of Ansel Adams by James Alinder. In a

he Sunriver Music Festival, Central Oregon’s only professional classical music festival, reported a 15 percent growth in ticket sales for the recently completed 39th season. An increase in visitors to the area, a new user friendly website, an expanded public relations effort and the use of social media all contributed to the record-setting season. “But the key to our success was the quality of our musical offerings and the growing support we are seeing from Bend residents,” states Pam Beezley, executive director of the Sunriver Music Festival. Beezley points out that Artistic Director George Hanson continued to bring world-renowned soloists to this season’s nine concerts. The Festival also added a second Pops Concert in Bend. Attendance at Festival Faire, its premier fundraiser of the year, also grew by twenty percent. “Donations and memberships enable us to continue nurturing the next generation of artistic talent through our scholarships and youth programs,” explains Beezley. The Festival holds musical performances year-round. Its Fireside Series of concerts and events occurs September through March. Annual traditions include a Valentine’s Day dinner and dance at the Sunriver Resort Great Hall and a Christmas concert as well as several smaller private concerts. New this year, the Festival will present a piano festival at the Tower Theatre on March 24 and 25. The 40th Anniversary season kicks off in December with the Patrick Lamb Jazz Band on December 16. It promises to be a lively night at the Sunriver Resort Homestead with hot music.

FALL IN THE HIGH DESERT AT SUNRIVER RESORT LODGE BETTY GRAY GALLERY

T

he Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery continues the Fall in the High Desert exhibition featuring JM Brodrick, Joanne Donaca, Mary Rollins and Gary Vincent. The exhibit continues through November 14. A painter since childhood, wife and mother of three, a member of COCC Community Education Advisory and Kids Center Boards, Donaca returned to her brush in earnest in 2000 after seeing a Monet exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. Inspired, she began serious focus on impressionistic oils on canvas. A coveted associate membership in Oil Painters of America reflects her achievement. The artist now chooses an enhanced yet realistic palette drawn from nature. She combines strong, defining foundational strokes with softer, gestural surface strokes, creating both texture and movement. She excels in painting water with a clear vision of light on its surface, Autumn Along the Stream by Donaca depicting the qualities of both refraction and reflection. Her subject of water also evidences her awareness of hues and values, creating a realistic vision of fluidity on the surface. Donaca notes her satisfaction in her art over the years. Significantly she adds, “Yet I measure my true ability by the pleasure the public takes in viewing my work and that my clients take in choosing a piece.”

O

n the upper level of the gallery (second floor), Rollins presents her exquisitely detailed watercolors of rivers and creeks. She exhibits brilliantly colored reflections of fall leaves, chartreuse green moss on rocks, yellow ochre caches of Deschutes River by Donaca seasonal remnants, all against a bold background of varied blues in water and sky. The hues are intense and riotous, mirroring the striking colors of Oregon autumn. Described as “Contemporary Naturalism,” the artist applies heavy underglazing, multi-layered washes, and other complicated techniques to produce complex paintings often requiring weeks to complete. She developed her exemplary technique with a BFA from Southern Oregon State University and continued studies with prominent watercolor artists. Rollins is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and a recipient of its Bronze Award in 2000. Her work has been the subject of many publications including a feature article, Intimate by Nature, in the prestigious Watercolor magazine. JM Brodrick and Gary Vincent, both featured in September press, work in acrylic and join in the Fall Quarter Exhibit at the resort. Sunriver Resort invites the public to the exhibition open all hours which continues through November 14.

O

ctober ushers in one of the most beautiful seasons in Central Oregon. Nature brings back some of the brilliant colors that we had in spring. At the Artists’ Gallery in Sunriver great art features the same splendor that we find in nature. The pace of Sunriver activities has slowed a bit, but you can still enjoy time viewing art and talking with the artists at the regularly scheduled Second Saturday Celebration on Saturday, October 8 from 4-6pm. If that time doesn’t fit into your schedule, the gallery is open daily (except Tuesdays) 10am-6pm.

Poppies by Bill Hamilton

F

eatured this month is oil painter, Bill Hamilton. His painting, Broken Top Sunset captures the wonderful colors of the season. Hamilton’s images of beautiful Central Oregon scenes are always popular at the gallery. His love for birds apparent in his many captivating scenes that include them as a focal point. Another featured painting, Backyard Poppies, was inspired by his wife Evie’s gardening talents. Hamilton offers pieces that range from large original landscapes to small high quality prints.

Broken Top By Bill Hamilton

A

lso featured is potter, Dori Kite. A long time resident of Central Oregon, Kite’s pottery pieces have been enjoyed by locals for years. Many have enjoyed a good cup of coffee or tea in one of her beautifully crafted cups. Many pieces have images that bring the local area to mind. Although very accomplished on the pottery wheel, Kite also creates a wide selection of pieces using a slab-building technique. As wonderful as her more utilitarian pieces, her slab pieces allow the artist to show off her creative artistic side. Some of the vessels are whimsical in nature including boxes with lids, serving platters and hanging flower vases. Other pieces are inspired by the lines of topographical maps and earthen colors and textures. Pottery by Dori Kite Pottery by Dori Kite

Sisters Folk Festival Presents Two Shows

S

isters Folk Festival, Inc. (SFF) announce two upcoming shows to keep the music coming following an outstanding 21st annual festival. On Sunday, November 6, Darlingside with Frances Luke Accord will perform at the Tower Theatre in Bend. Sponsored by Birkenstock of Bend, the band will be in Central Oregon after being fan-favorites at the 2014 and 2015 Sisters Folk Festival. The Boston-based band is on a national tour following the release of their album Birds Say.

Darlingside fuses chamber pop with folk melodies for infectious and gorgeous music that is hard to categorize. Rolling Stone magazine says, "locomotive folk-pop confections so richly executed it's hard to tell if it's one voice or 12. The band has a special, inventive and deeply intriguing style of music that separates them from most. We wanted to present the show in downtown Bend to expose them to a larger market. We are continually being asked when they are coming back, and wanted to do something different this time, presenting them at the beautiful Tower Theatre. It will be a show not to be missed,” says Brad Tisdel, creative director of Sisters Folk Festival. Frances Luke Accord, an independent Chicago-based duo hailing originally from South Bend, Indiana, will open the show. Both dedicated multi-instrumentalists and meticulous songwriters, Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers distinguish their music with genre fluidity, buttery harmonies and acoustic ensembles. On Thursday, November 17, SFF presents the Chicago-based Hypnotic Brass Ensemble at the Sisters High School auditorium. The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is a family band consisting of seven brothers who began their musical training at the tender ages of four and five by their father, jazz-trumpeter/bandleader Kelan Phil Cohran (Earth, Wind & Fire; Chaka Khan; and Sun Ra). The family toured performing complex originals written by Cohran and other greats such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and even the music of classical greats Bach & Beethoven. Although the group’s early musical training encompassed primarily elements of instrumental performance, the brothers were personally being exposed to the music of their own generation (hip-hop, rock, reggae to name a few) and absorbed these components into the cosmic jazz style of their father. By 1999, the band of brothers discontinued playing with dad in order to find their own sound, growing into the band now known as Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, or HBE. Tickets for SFF Presents: Darlingside with Frances Luke Accord, are available at www.towertheatre.org, $24 advance and $28 at the door. Tickets for SFF Presents: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are $15 adult and $10 for students and at sistersfolkfestival.org/event, or call the festival office at 541-5494979. Both shows start at 7pm.

with a holiday show of song and dance. In February is Kristina Reiko Cooper, an internationally-acclaimed cellist who will perform both classical and contemporary music along with her pianist and percussionist. In March an a’cappella group, Women of the World, will perform original and folk music from around the world

bringing the message of unity. The season will end on April 23 with Tom Rigney and Flambeau, a group of five musicians, performing fiery Cajun and Zydeco music along with beautiful ballads and waltzes. All performances are held on Sundays in the Performing Arts Theatre at Ridgeview High School in Redmond at both 2 and 6:30pm.

Each year RCCA has over 1,200 subscribers, most of whom renew year after year.

Johnsmith Music in Prineville

8Prineville Mayor Betty Roppe is bringing Johnsmith Music into the City of Prineville for a free concert on October 16 at 4pm at Lutheran Church on the corner of Harwood and Third Streets. “My purpose is to give the citizens of Prineville a big “thank you” from me for their help in making my six years as their Mayor successful,” says Mayor Roppe. Johnsmith is one of those artists so often under-recognized – he possesses a genius that cannot be denied, ignored or overlooked. For the past thirty-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music all across America and abroad. He has become a favorite at festivals, clubs and house concerts alike. In addition to being a Kerrville New Folk Winner, Johnsmith has released seven solo CDs to rave reviews, leads musical tours to Ireland, teaches songwriting and has served as a staff songwriter in Nashville. With his faded jeans, his twinkly blue eyes and his infectious smile, John immediately connects with audiences. You get the sense of a man who loves his life, his family and friends, and who loves nothing more than sharing that love in song and stories all across this land.

Fall Baking with Savory Spice

DINING

by MATTHEW PERRY for Cascade AE

Apple Pie Bites

P

umpkins spiced lattes, winter ales, abundant squash, falling leaves and your baking spices calling you from the depths of your cabinets. Fall has arrived.   This is a critical time of year to check the freshness of your spices.   Your typical baking spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, allspice and ginger add more to your recipe if they are recently ground.   If you grind your spices fresh for use in your baked goods, than you will be enjoying some tasty baked goods, but if you are still using some of those old ground spices that come out of the cupboard once a year for five or twenty years, it might be time to refresh.   The traditional baking spices are normally higher in oil content than many spices which means those oils can also dry out and lose flavor more quickly than other spices.   Make sure your recipes shine this year with fresh and flavorful spices.

DIRECTIONS For crust: With an electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Stir in flour until dough forms. Transfer dough to floured surface and divide into 24 pieces. Press each piece into bottom and sides of an ungreased mini muffin tin (1½-inch muffin cups) to form little tart crusts. For filling: Combine apples, maple sugar, cornstarch and Baking Spice in a medium saucepan and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture has thickened.

INGREDIENTS For the crust: 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened 3 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 cup all-purpose flour For the filling: 2 cups peeled, small diced tart baking apples 1/3 cup maple sugar 2 tsp. cornstarch 1 tsp. Baking Spice

For topping: Combine flour, brown sugar and nuts in a small bowl. Cut cold butter into small pieces, add to flour mixture and rub together with fingers until mixture is crumbly.

For the topping: 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour 2 Tbsp. brown sugar 3 Tbsp. toasted, chopped walnuts or pecans 1/4 tsp. Baking Spice

To assemble: Place about 1 tsp. of filling into each dough-lined muffin cup and sprinkle each with topping. Bake in a 325-degree oven for about 30 min. until pastry is golden. Remove from oven and cool in muffin tin for 5 min., then remove tarts from tin and cool completely on a baking rack before serving.

Yields 24 bites Adapted from Better Homes & Gardens Notes: Try recipe with chopped peaches, cherries or in place of apple and experiment with other baking blends such as Pumpkin Pie Spice or Chinese Five Spice.

Central Oregon Symphony A Profile of Marion Johnson

E

very shelf, table and corner of her tiny apartment speaks loudly of Marion Johnson’s connection to music. Beethoven, Bach, Copland enough sheet music to wallpaper the place three times over. No surprise that Marion Johnson is the longest tenured musician in the Central Oregon Symphony (COS), from 1967 to 2012. Born in San Francisco in 1934, Marion was one of three children born to a Presbyterian father and a mother who was obliged to play the piano for the Sunday school children. But it was at age five, when her parents took the kindergartner to hear a Jascha Heifetz recital, that Marion became enthralled with the violin. “I remember standing in front of a mirror, swaying back and forth with my bow, a yellow ruler." Marion got her first violin around the age of eight and played in junior high and high school orchestras and finally the Stanford Symphony Orchestra while completing her B.S. in science. Marriage and three young children didn’t allow time for violin, so it wasn’t until the family moved to Bend that Marion would find herself picking up the bow again. Dr. Kenneth Oakley, the ophthalmologist, whose practice Marion’s husband was to join, got her a violin and in Marion’s words, “dragged” her to play in an ensemble. She remembers practicing while her three-year-old daughter lay at her feet howling for attention. Marion also remembers those first COS years as pretty meager with only four violins. “I was embarrassed to tell my friends that I was playing in the orchestra for fear they’d actually come and listen.” Then Marion pointed to a photo of one of her fondest memories playing with the Dove String Quartet: Eleanor Davidson, Virginia Riggs, Leslie Knight and herself on second violin. When asked how the orchestra changed under Michael Gesme’s baton, she said, with a broad smile, “He picked out music that was much more challenging and I had nightmares about playing my part right.” When asked about this situation, Michael responded, a bit alarmed, “Good heavens! It was not my intention to give anyone nightmares. There is so much great music out there and I simply knew that we could play it. The COS continually rose to the occasion, so I continued to up the ante.” As for Marion, Michael commented that he, “…knew she was a pivotal player from his first rehearsal with the orchestra in the fall of 1996. I so enjoyed getting to know her, learning about her family, her work and all of her animals. Marion’s dedication is second to none and I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her.”

THE BEATLES RETURN TO BEND STAGE

A

lmost everyone knows that The Beatles are one of the most acclaimed bands in rock and roll history because their music has the hypnotic qualities that make teenage girls scream and artists today and yesterday cite them as one of their influences. While many of us don’t have the opportunity to see the two surviving Beatles Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr live in concert these days, the closest thing to watching an actual Beatles concert will be In My Life – A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles at the Bend Theatre on Sunday, October 16 at 7pm. The musical is family friendly. The show played to a sold out audience at the Tower Theatre in 2014 and Abbey Road’s show, Beatles vs. Stones, played to a sold out crowd last year at the Tower Theatre.

You mean just another tribute band? No, because not all tribute bands are alike. This one portrays the Beatles—John Lennon (Nathaniel Bott), Paul

MUSIC

McCartney (Christopher Overall), George Harrison (Zak Schaffer) and Ringo Starr (Axel Clarke)—as authentically as possible, from their singing to the myriad of guitars used throughout the band’s decade-long career. Listening to songs like Penny Lane or I Want To Hold Your Hand from this tribute band is almost like listening to the original icons themselves. The cast members are age appropriate for the Beatles, between 22-32 years of age. While the great repertoire of songs bind this musical together, the audience also gets the opportunity to relive the most important moments of The Beatles’ epic legacy, which spans the entire 1960s period. The actors that portray the band members connect with the crowd through their lovable sense of humors and cheeky banter. As one watches The Beatles progress throughout that decade, the band’s manager Brian Epstein (Murphy Martin) makes his presence known throughout the musical, narrating his side of the story starting from his discovery of the Fab Four at the Cavern Club in Liverpool up until after the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. www.towertheatre.org, 541-317-0700

NEW PERSPECTIVE for OCTOBER

appiness and the desire to have more of it is the motivator this month. In order to start on a happy note there may need to be conversations on the 1st that are about how to move forward. Trust the decisions you make on the 4th and experience the rewards over the next few days. Your need to be practical may be challenged by the desire to expand on the 5th. Step up and take the action that you know is right for you. Conversations become more complicated after the 7th as you seek to understand both sides. Keep your heart open on the 11th and step into the unknown. Take the high road on the 13th rather than try to convince others that you are right. Have faith in what you hear near the Full Moon on the 15th and give yourself permission to be involved in something that makes you happy. A change of heart on the 18th could lead you to something delightful. Steps taken during this time are intense and create a transformation. Conversations on the 20th are surprising and all about change.  Remind yourself that happiness is important and let that be your guideline.

Everything seems to be more intense after the 22nd and conversations that start out easy may end up surprising you. Talk about what you are willing to let go of after the 24th and get ready to follow through. An opening of the heart on the 26th triggers a series of events over the next few days. Speak honestly and openly on the 27th and let your actions reflect what you are saying. The two days before the New Moon on the 30th are pivotal as decisions are made and change occurs. Take a deep breath during the New Moon and realize the past is behind you and the future is beginning to show itself. Remind yourself as this month ends that happiness is a priority and you are ready for lots of it. Love and Light Always,
