Artists’ Gallery Sunriver Warming Up for Summer

Both the weather and the Artists’ Gallery of Sunriver are warming up a bright and happy start to summer, and you are invited to participate in the fun. Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 11 (4-7pm) to stop by the gallery and enjoy food and drink with the artists. There are several featured artists that have great art to share with you.

Wood working artist Greg Cotton has many pieces of functional kitchen art for you to admire and then take with you to brighten your home. His meticulous designs and precise cuts work together to highlight the natural beauty of the exotic woods that he prefers. Whether it is a humble door stop or a complicated cutting board, each piece is a treasure.

Watercolor artist Deni Porter produces bright and colorful animal portraits that captivate the viewer. Using deeply saturated colors and adding the texture of watercolor pencil allows the artist to take license with the colors that nature intended for each of her subjects. Each painting results in a fun piece of art that represents the essence of each animal.

Potter Diane Miyauchi offers beautiful and delicate raku vessels along with her ever popular pottery pieces. The raku pottery finish provides each vessel with a delicate iridescent surface. Some are lidded with wire wrapped handles adorned with beading. While you visit the gallery you may learn more about the interesting process of raku finishes.

Photographer Carolyn Waissman is well known for intimate animal portraits, but this season her work offers a new look and different theme. Her new portfolio – Hanging Out Together – includes all types of animal and human groups that share time together. From herds of elephants sipping at the “Elephant Spa”, Impalas playing, cheetahs licking, and human couples walking in the woods there are all kings of things that can be found together. More unusual partners are geese and goslings, bees and ladybugs with flowers, beer and wine cheers, and even laundry hanging out on the line together!
