Art Patrons coming to the August Sunriver Art Faire will find many artisans from the Central Oregon area. Having survived the tough competition for an invite to the Faire are the following local artists:
Ceramic artists Steven Provence, Michael Gwinup and Peter Roussel of Bend, drawing artist Barbara Kennedy of Crooked River Ranch, glass artist Nancy Becker of Bend, jewelry artist Kaylaa Milaine of Bend, painters Marjorie Cossairt and Kristin Moore of La Pine and Bonnie Junell, part time Sunriver artist, photographers Karen Maier and Christine Crosby of Bend, textile artist Sara Wiener of Bend and woodwork artists Greg Cotton and Joe Glassford of Sunriver.
The Art Faire extends a special welcome back to mixed media artist Cameron Kaseberg of Redmond. Cameron was selected as Best in Show at the 2012 Faire and was rewarded with a return invitation to this year’s event without having to go through the Jury process. He will be featured at an artist reception on June 22, 4– 7pm, put on by Discover Sunriver Vacation Rentals in the Village at Sunriver. His art will be on display at their office/gallery until July 17, and the public is welcome to stop by and view.
In addition artists will be in attendance from various other parts of Oregon, as well as from Washington, Idaho, Montana, Arizona and North Carolina. Their art disciplines include ceramics, drawing, glass, jewelry, metalwork, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, textiles and woodwork. There will be a wide variety of artwork to tempt the most discerning shopper.
Faire dates are August 9-11 in the Village at Sunriver. There will be a wide variety of professional entertainment as well as a food court and an art activity center for kids and adults. www.sunriverartfaire.com.
