The Final Fourth Friday Art Stroll of 2018 will not disappoint. It may be last, but it’s not least. Gather your friends and family to stroll through the galleries of Sisters and head over to Hood Avenue between 4 and 7 p.m. for the monthly stroll, sponsored by Sisters Arts Association.
This month Sisters Arts Association will be giving away a limited edition, framed, archival giclee titled “Harmony In Nature,” by JoAnn Burgess. It features a pristine view of the upper Dechutes with Mt. Bachelor in the background. The painting will be on display from December 20 until the 28th at Hood Avenue Art when it will be awarded to the winner of our monthly “Quick Draw.”
Hood Avenue Art is showing “More Small Wonders,” the gallery artists’ exhibit of small format fine art. These are perfect for first-time collectors, tiny footprint living, and gifts. Discover an artist new to you, or reconnect with your favorite. Hood Avenue Art represents more than 25 artists sharing their visions of life in the High Desert. Live music and refreshments will be provided.
We may be running out of time in 2018, but Beacham’s Clock Shop isn’t … and will be open and giving tours getting people ready to celebrate the New Year with accurate time.
Sisters Gallery and Frame Shop will host artists Kimry Jelen and Paul Alan Bennett. Kimry will sign her new 2019 Calendars, and talk about her new life at Silvertail Farm. Paul is promoting his new “Night Skies” book. Sana Hayes will also be in the gallery, displaying jewelry created from the dog tags of Three Rivers Humane Society’s rescued pets, with all proceeds going to support the shelter in Madras.
Ken Scott’s Imagination Gallery is hosting featured artist Don Zylius, with his watercolors. He will be painting onsite.
Clearwater Gallery features ceramics by Maren and Laura. Their sleek minimalist shapes and designs have a botanical inspiration. Laura hand throws porcelain dishware, while Maren hand paints each piece with a cobalt design.
Stop by Sisters Coffee for a warm beverage and check out the Topo Trail Maps by Trevor Costa. The great outdoors meets art and design, in trail maps that are created on American hardwoods, each with a different grain pattern. The contours appear differently, depending on where you stand, either casting shadows or highlighting the trail.
Jill Neal created “Dance of the Pies” for her dear friend, Kate McDermott, who asked for “pie ladies” after writing the book, “Art of the Pie,” (available at Paulina Springs Books) and starting pie camps in Port Angeles. “Kate has taken pie to an art form,” Jill reports. See this and other new paintings at Jill’s Wild Tasteful Women.
Wildflower Studio continues to celebrate the Holiday Season with wine and light appetizers and the beautiful artwork and gifts made by local artists.
Grizzly Ridge Upcycle will be open, as well as Dyrk Godby Gallery, and Nature’s Bling. Stop by each of the galleries for a holiday treat.
Raven Makes Gallery displays authentic and contemporary Native American art and jewelry from innovative new talent to museum quality masters.
Taking a break from the stroll this month are The Stitchin’ Post Fabric Art Gallery, Kate Aspen’s Cowgirls and Indians Resale, and Sisters Art Works. Sisters Library isn’t open for the stroll, but is featuring Paul Alan Bennett’s “Night Skies” series, and paper cuts by Carly Garzon Vargas.
Restaurants that sponsor the stroll include Chops, Open Door, Cork Sellers, The Saloon, Sisters Coffee, The Depot Cafe, and Cottonwood Cafe.
