Sanctuary, Smith Rock Series - Watercolor, 21 x 29
By Cindy Briggs
The High Desert Art League is pleased to announce a new exhibit entitled Interpretations: Working in a series” set to open Tuesday, October 1st in the second floor gallery at St Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon.

The members of this group are all accomplished artists who exhibit a wide range of talents in various media. Luminous watercolors, vibrant oils, and pastel paintings are specialties of several members - Vivian Olsen and Cindy Briggs create art in all three media and their subjects range from birds and European scenes to regional landscapes. There is more in the watercolor realm, with the graphic figures and dramatic landscapes by Helen Brown and Jacqueline Newbold. Working in oils, artist Barbara Slater paints large, vivid florals on canvas, and Pam Jersey Bird creates colorful experiences of nature in her semi-abstract mixed media paintings. Janice Rhodes uses hot wax as her medium creating encaustic paintings.  Richard Frederick is a fine art photographer, producing both black & white and color images.  Cameron Kaseberg uses a solvent transfer process to combine inks and images from various printed media as well as his own photos and graphics, chemically dissolving them and transferring the images onto a new surface. Pat Clark produces abstract images using a variety of skills, including the techniques of relief printing, embossment, chine collĂ©, mixed media, and drawing. David Kinker is known for his larger mural and also for his colorful acrylic paintings.  Joren Traveller is our 3-dimensional artist, and creates bronze sculptors of horses and birds.

The exhibition opens October 1st and runs through December 31st, 2013 at St. Charles Hospital, located at 2500 NE Neff Road in Bend. You can find the gallery space on the second floor near the cafeteria.
