STARS for September: the creative talents of featured artists Karla Lorentson, Lynne Myers and Deb Moquin. The public is invited to join the COFA family at a reception Saturday, September 5, 4–7pm.
Lorentson Glass is Magical. Glass holds the ability to form a new idea or bring back a special memory of the past. Such is the medium that has held Karla’s attention for over 30 years. Whether St. Paul’s in London or Murano in Italy or Chihuly in Tacoma, Karla’s travels have helped her to appreciate her medium and have inspired her to create her own stained glass original works.
Myers Whimsical Acrylic Animals. “Call me crazy, but I love cougars and bears and all the other creatures in this area. So, you guessed it, I paint them! When you see my art it is about heart and soul in a whimsical style.”
Moquin Photography. “I have always been a ‘wanna be photographer.’” Having grown up on a farm in the hills of Virginia, Deb developed a love for the great outdoors and animals. This passion always stuck with her. Coming to Bend only heightened Deb’s passion.
Deb’s backyard is the Deschutes River and she has a menagerie of animals and birds to enchant her.

Jenny and Douglas Campbell Smith. Doug and Jenny live in Bend but for the past 28 years they have been travelling to various parts of Europe, painting watercolors on site, and works on canvas in their studio when they return. Most recently the Umbrian and Tuscan areas of Italy have been their destinations, resulting in numerous paintings of this region.
