Join Artists’ Gallery on Saturday April 8 from 4-6pm at the Artists’ Gallery Sunriver.
Meet the gallery artists (all 30 of us are locals) and enjoy some wine and beer and eats. Let’s have a party!
Featured artist this month is Ross Lipson, a truly skilled photographer living in Bend. His beautiful nature photographs are printed on metal for a clean crisp contemporary look. This month’s feature is a winter view from Todd Lake to Mt. Bachelor.
Ross says, “The idea of a winter sunrise shot with Mt. Bachelor reflecting as the sunrise, has always been a dream……but a distant one, due to the rarity of catching the moment. For the road to Todd Lake to still be open, with a fresh coat of enough snow to cover the mountain, the lake to be completely still to show a reflection….and an addition of just enough clouds to bring color to the sky in a very unlikely alignment. As they say, ‘the stars aligned.’ I was fortunate to be there to capture the perfect moment. This resulted in my photo, Morning Bliss.”
Ross has a beautiful selection at the gallery and is happy to take custom orders of any size.
The second featured artist is Robert (Bob) Fouse of Bend who grew up in a very creative and artistic family. When Bob and his wife moved to Bend, their new home came complete with an ugly green pond that just called for a cleanup and a water feature. The first water feature was “okay” but not great….
After some thought, they decided the pond needed a water fountain that looked like a tree. Thus, the uniquely created stone tree fountains were created. They can stand on their own, or, each is set up with the possibility of a water pump and fountain. The stone tree sculptures are perfect for Central Oregon outdoor landscapes.
Bob says, “I love Mother Nature; she has provided all the things that drive my art. I use parts and pieces that she has provided, embellish, massage and arrange her work so you may see it in an entirely new way.”
New in the gallery are Bob’s unique metal and ceramic bird baths that take the word ‘yard art’ to an entirely new dimension.
