Twelve Local Artists...

Work by Vivian Olsen
at Alleda Real Estate
Who, Where and When.The twelve members of Central Oregon’s High Desert Art League (HDAL) are an ambitious group with a schedule to back it up. In May alone the group is opening three new exhibits in addition to the galleries where they have individual ongoing shows.

On May 1st Vivian Olsen, known for her wildlife art in oil, watercolor, and pastels, opens a show at Alleda Real Estate on NW Minnesota Ave. in Bend.  Alleda is a great stop during the First Friday Art Walk on May 2nd and a perfect chance to explore Vivian’s unique use of color, technique and abstract backgrounds in her realistic animal portraits. The show runs through the end of May.

Work by Janice Rhodes at Broken Top
Cameron Kaseberg and Janice Rhodes present a two-person exhibit at Bend’s Broken Top Club, which runs May 14th through July 15th.  Janice Rhodes is a pastel artist with a fondness for Encaustics. Each of her works is an adventure in design and intuition. Cameron Kaseberg is known for his work in solvent transfer images and was recently featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s television series, Oregon Art Beat. Broken Top Club hosts their Third Thursday Art Walk, Jazz Night, and Wine Tasting May 15th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. If you get to Broken Top before May 14, you can still catch the exhibit of Richard Frederick, Vivian Olsen and Shelly Wierzba.

Work by Helen Brown at The North Rim
The North Rim residential clubhouse is host to Helen Brown’s watercolors through June. Visitors to the clubhouse on weekdays from 1-5pm will find six of Helen’s works with subjects ranging from architecture to dancing figures. The Clubhouse is on Wild Rye Street off of Mt. Washington Drive.

In addition to the three exhibits listed above, the High Desert Art League members are busy with their ongoing gallery shows. Jacqueline Newbold, Janice Rhodes, Shelly Wierzba and Joren Traveller show their work at the Red Chair Gallery in downtown Bend. Helen Brown and David Kinker’s work can be found at the Tumalo Art Company in Bend’s Old Mill District, along with Barbara Slater’s oils at Desperado.
