What? Fourth Friday Art Stroll

When? Friday, , 4 to 7 p.m.
The Sisters Arts Association’s Fourth Friday Art Stroll is happening this week. Spring is in the air, so leave your boots in your closet, and stroll through the galleries of Sisters between 4 and 7 p.m. Some locations offer music and all will serve up light refreshments and amazing new art.
Ready? Start your stroll at Sisters Coffee Company, where you can indulge in one of the Happy Hour Specials while enjoying the landscape photographs of Austin James Jackson, all printed on metal. Then head either east or west on Hood Avenue, or down Oak to Cascade.
Hood Avenue Art features mixed media, contemporary landscape paintings by Sarah Hansen, and fun, casual beaded jewelry by Karen Evans.
At The Collection Gallery, sculptor Gary Cooley is featuring his new work and some classical favorites.
Clearwater Gallery and Framing will be featuring a show of new works by local artists Janice Druian and Randall Tillery. Artists will be in residence painting from 4 to 6 p.m.
Across Hood Avenue, Beacham’s Clock Company will be open, so people may stop in and see clocks being made.
Don’t miss a rare collection of one-of-a-kind linen garments titled “Wild Flax” at Twigs. Designed by Leotie Richards of Sisters, and fabricated from linen fabrics found at The Stitchin' Post and other sources around the world, the collection includes dress jackets, casual tops, and playful linen t-shirts.
