What? Fourth Friday Art Stroll
Where? Galleries of Sisters
Sisters Arts Association is taking advantage of the change of seasons, with the March 22 Fourth Friday Art Stroll on March 22 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Galleries of Sisters.
The Stitchin’ Post Fiber Arts Gallery will feature lively, organic, original creations by the Journeys Art Quilting Group. A must see!
The Collection Gallery will spotlight Gary Cooley’s clay sculpture kits for kids, using sculpy clay. Bring the whole family because Gary might just have some homemade cookies.
Clearwater Gallery’s featured artist is Dennis Dame. “Paint is fascinating to me. It communicates and connects like nothing else. I am amazed how shapes, values and colors can be arranged to convey something that simply could not be said worth words,” he says.
Sisters Coffee is showcasing Lighten Photography by Rachel Hooley, who specializes in the stark differences of light and dark. All of her prints are featured on wood canvases as well as different media including note cards and small collages.
Raven Makes Gallery will feature Coast Salish artist Maynard Johnny, Jr., and a fine selection of newly curated Pueblo and Navajo pottery reflecting both traditional and contemporary aesthetics in Native art.
Hood Avenue Art is featuring large format landscape photography of Scott Cordner, and the alternatively glazed ceramic work of Peter Roussel. Cordner reaches a new level of craftsmanship by printing his own images and hand crafting his own creative, furniture quality wood frames. Roussel’s glowing and highly textured ceramics hold impressions and images directly from nature and have a rarely-seen tactile quality.
Wildflower Studio will be Celebrating Spring during the Art Stroll. Stop in and see rich oil paintings, nuno felted soft sculptures, hats, leather wallets and more.. Enjoy the evening with friends, wine and light appetizers!
Marjie Scott steps up to the fore at Ken Scott’s Imagination Gallery, with several new steel wall sculptures – a change up from small and beautiful to large and stunning.
Sisters Gallery and Frame Shop welcomes glass artist Mel Archer and returning artists Kay and Gordon Baker. Archer’s intricate glasswork reveals itself in layers of glass paint, fused and mounted on custom metal plaques. The effect is three-dimensional. The Bakers are plein air landscape painters in oil and pastel, whose work is also featured at the Sisters Library this month.
At Grizzley Ridge Upcycle, find Funky to Fabulous Reincarnated Treasure.
Sisters Library highlights the return of husband and wife artists Kay and Gordon Baker to Central Oregon. Gordon’s oil paintings are being shown in the Community Room, and Kay’s plein air landscapes in oil and pastel are in the Computer Room through the end of March.
Jill Neal will be away at a fine art show , but her gallery will be open, serving wine and chocolates, and featuring original new impressionistic horses and six small new prints.
