….and February is the perfect month to surprise your Valentine with a gift from Artists’ Gallery Sunriver Village!
Don’t miss our 2nd Saturday Party with the Artists celebration on February 10 from 4 to 6pm… indulge in some yummy chocolates and wine and meet the artists of the gallery.
Featured this month is our newest artist member, Leslie Klipper Stewart.
Wearable art is Leslie’s main passion. Her handmade, often one-of-a-kind jewelry creations are the result of a long artistic journey with divergent paths. Art by LK Stewart is a melding of those elements….an artistic background, an insatiable jewelry habit, obsession with gemstones and metals and a love of simple, yet elegant contemporary design.
“The Gems often tell me what to do with them. Then I communicate that vision into the design,” says Leslie. “I fabricate each piece by hand and keep on it until the piece ‘speaks’ to me. When a piece is complete, I love the feeling I get of gratitude and accomplishment!”
Mike and Pat Millsap of Sunriver Metal Works are inspired by the beauty of Central Oregon. The variety of mountains, trees, wildlife and nature direct their work. The Millsaps create unique décor and functional art for your home, office, cabin or patio.
Using photos, Mike and Pat create their own designs, and the designs are cut using a plasma table. Once the solid steel is ground and patinas added, a clear coat is applied to create a lasting finish for inside or outside use.
Custom work is the Millsap’s specialty. They work with each customer to bring their vision to reality. A variety of pieces are available at Artists’ Gallery including one-of-a-kind art pieces and very useful wall-mounted key holders which make the perfect gift.
