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.
Hood Avenue Art features colorful abstractions by pastel painter JoAnn Burgess, with an emphasis on light and texture, and figurative sculpture, inspired by memory, movement and time by Breezy Anderson. There will also be live music.
Sisters Gallery will feature brand new acrylic pour canvases by Candice Bruguier.

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.
