The Fourth Friday Art Stroll is back from 4 to 7 p.m. on May 24, in the Galleries of Sisters. Gather your friends and take a walk through to see fine art, sample hors d’oeuvres, and listen to music.
Hood Avenue Art this month features unique structural book constructs by Kelley Salber and the mixed media contemporary landscape paintings by Sarah Hansen. This show will remain in place through June 26. The reception will include refreshments and live music.
Gary Cooley’s Collection Gallery this month features the fine art of Clarke Berryman. Clarke was raised as a Montana ranch kid and became a veterinarian. Now retired, he considers himself a classical realist painter, concentrating on portraiture and wildlife. He travels the world to photograph wildlife, which he then recreates in oils.
The Clearwater Gallery’s Art Stroll features art for sale created by Sisters High School students. The cabin in the courtyard and the gallery will feature ceramics by Patricia Ehrlich, Hailey Mosca and Faith Gallegos, jewelry by Meaghan Greaney and Delsie McCrystal, art prints and custom-designed t-shirts from the school’s print shop.
Beacham’s Clock Company will be open this month. Kathi and Ed invite you to see their newest, soon-to-be-completed, eight-foot carved grandfather clock with a gravity escapement and skeletonized multiple dial. There will also be a display of vintage watch and clock making tools.
Due to a conflict, artists Kay and Gordon Baker missed last month’s event at Sisters Gallery and Frame Shop – but they will be on hand with new plein air paintings this week. Jennifer Hartwig, “the Scratchboard Lady,” will be demonstrating her techniques and taking registrations for a June 15 Scratch Art Class, Sip-n-Scratch, at the Gallery.
Ken Scott’s Imagination Gallery is filled, as usual, with more than can be absorbed in a single visit. New paintings, sculptured steel chandeliers and lamps, metal wall scenes – some far too large to fit on your walls – but worth the gander! Food and music? Maybe … Wine? Definitely. Ken Scott hosting.
Down the street at Bedouin, Good Day Café will be open and the featured artist will be Michelle I. Lane, “Capturing Moments in Time.” Michelle began painting after she retired as an educator and counselor in K-8 schools, where she often used at activities as a way to relieve stress and promote kids’ ability to communicate. After moving to Redmond, she began to study watercolor with Winnie Givot of Sisters and other accomplished artists.
See the new art products at Jill Neal Gallery. From 6 to 7 p.m., Jill’s grandson Henry will be selling mugs and magnets to benefit the Sisters Kiwanis Food Bank. Wild women, horses, wine and chocolate, as always!
Wildflower Studio will feature new oil paintings by Chris Nelson and new pastels by Jane Chase. Stop by for light appetizers, wine and conversation.
Grizzly Ridge Upcycle will also be open with the latest in funky to fabulous reincarnated treasures.
