Everyone is happy that Spring is around the corner. The artists at the Gallery in Sunriver are certainly no exception, and they would like to celebrate with you at the Second Saturday reception on April 12. The celebration starts at 4pm when refreshments are set out for all attendees to enjoy. While enjoying the party feast, you can catch up with the latest art produced by some of the gallery’s most popular artists. Featured artists are Marjorie Cossairt, Stella Rose Powell, Chuck Chamberlain and Glenn Burleigh.
You will especially be delighted by new offerings from Marjorie Cossairt, watercolor painter. Marjorie has a very loyal following. Most of her collectors have multiple pieces because her unique and cohesive style makes for beautiful groupings on a single wall. One collector felt that the three paintings the he purchased worked so well together that it was “like looking out the window into the forest.” Marjorie’s use of color never fails to radiate from the surface of her paintings. She is very adept at placing complementary colors next to each other to create energy. One of several new pieces featured this month, a macro view of a butterfly, is going to be very popular.
Another very popular artist at the gallery is Stella Rose Powell, jewelry artist. Because Stella’s pieces are so unique and constantly include new ideas and techniques, displaying her work at the gallery is like the gift of having new artists all of the time. One of her featured pieces this month, a beautiful metal bracelet adorned with delicate metal pieces and Oregon Sun stone. Almost every month Stella’s pieces change and evolve into something even more enticing to those of us that like to add jewelry to our collection.
Once again the gallery is proud to feature the paintings of Chuck Chamberlain. This month’s featured painting is a captivating look at a picturesque barn. Chuck has the ability to take what is more typically a masculine subject, but present it in the most delicate manner. His use of color and painting technique lend the paintings an “other worldliness”. While Chuck really has a talent for realism and detail, his paintings are appealing because of the atmosphere that he creates with each scene.
The final featured artist for this month is furniture maker and wood sculptor, Glenn Burleigh. Glenn has really captured the essence of Spring with his featured piece, Let’s Dance. The free standing abstract sculpture, carved from Western Juniper, is almost alive with energy. Glenn’s carving technique makes great use of the grain of the wood to convey this energy. It is almost as if two of Mother Nature’s own are dancing.
