Raven Makes Gallery welcomes three Zuni Pueblo artists for the fourth Friday weekend. Jayne Quam, Kandis Quam, and Elroy Natachu, Jr., stone carvers and painters, are bringing new works from their studios in New Mexico, reflecting their culture and traditions.

Twigs features "Pathways" from Central Oregon Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA). “Pathways as a roadmap to artistic expression” is the theme of SAQA’s 2017 show and exhibit. Fiber artists explore literal maps, circumnavigations, explorations and fictional trails. The art quilts are abstract and representational, appliquéd and pieced, embellished and painted, machine stitched and hand quilted. In addition to theme, size is the unifying trait. All of the quilts are either 18-by-40 inches or 40-by-18 inches.

Photographer Lisa Belt’s work will be featured at Gary Cooley’s Collection Gallery. Belt’s photograph, “Suspended,” was selected and published on National Geographic’s “Daily Dozen.” More than 12,000 photos are submitted each day to the National Geographic website, of which 12 are chosen by the photo editors for publication. Photographs with the most votes are considered for possible publication in a future issue of National Geographic Magazine.

Sisters Gallery will feature brand new acrylic pour canvases by Candice Bruguier. The original paintings are abstract – no two alike – and some are enhanced by the addition of a wild animal or landscape as suggested by the nature of the pour. The gallery also has new work by some of its gallery artists: Carol Grigg, Curtiss Abbott, Jodi Schneider, Jennifer Hartwig, Ann Grossnickle, and at least six of Dennis McGregor’s “You Stole My Name” original paintings.

In Ken Scott’s Imagination Gallery, owner and artist Ken Scott will display several new works in his “Steampunk” genre. Other artists will feature new paintings in watercolors, oils and acrylics, fused stained-glass scenery, raku pots and vases, clay birdbaths and lamps, chandeliers, garden lights and scenery in metal.

Fall is here, so why not step out and support local artists and merchants during the Fourth Friday Art Stroll, Sept. 22, from 4 to 7 p.m.

McGregor launches his Kickstarter Campaign at the Library on Friday, and he will play and discuss his new work in the Community Room at 7 p.m. All of the paintings are available for purchase, and since some have already been sold, this will be one of the final opportunities to see all of them simultaneously.

The Clearwater Gallery highlights woodworker Bob Bousquet, fused-glass artist Edie Shelton, and jewelry artist Wendy Vernon, between 4 and 6:30 p.m.

Twigs’ featured artist is Art Quilter Helen Brisson, “Sketching in Fabric.” She uses personal photos and sketches as stepping stones to dying, painting, and printing on her own fabric, and experiments with commercial fabrics, finishing her work with “Maxine,” her quilting machine.

Raven Makes Gallery has new acquisitions from a recent Southwest buying trip: Navajo silver and precious stone jewelry from the Lister family, gold and silver bracelets from Cody Hunter, and a curated sample of Pueblo pottery.

Barbara Berry, the featured artist at Ken Scott’s Imagination Gallery, captures subject, time and place with vibrant colors. During the Art Stroll, she offers a 10 percent discount on her art.

Jewelry artist Sharon Reed is featured at Hood Avenue Art. Her stunning jewelry combines textured sterling with stones she has collected from around the world.
