High Desert Art League at Sunriver Resort

The Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery presents members of the High Desert Art League (HDAL) through September 4 in the upper & lower galleries.

The HDA was formed in 2000 as a group of professional artists working to support the advancement of its member artists through exhibitions, education and related outreach. Each artist contributes their experience and talents to benefit the group, sharing knowledge, information, opportunities, challenges and successes.

HDAL members include Cindy Briggs, JM Broderick, Helen Brown, Patricia (Pat) Clark, David Kinker, Lisa and Lori Lubbesmeyer, Vivian Olsen, Janice Rhodes, Barbara Slater and Joren Traveller. All are accomplished artists who exhibit a wide range of talent in various mediums.

In the Sunriver exhibition, Briggs and Olsen show works in watercolor.  Briggs presents images of skies while Olsen exhibits paintings of wildlife mothers Helen Brown shows paintings of figurative sculpture and Pat Clark shows ink drawings of water-related landscapes on clay board.

Kinker displays colorful acrylic landscapes with Jacqueline Newbold exhibiting watercolor landscapes. Rhodes uses hot wax as her medium, creating encaustic figurative paintings.  Working in oils, Slater paints over-scale vegetable and Traveller exhibits landscapes.

The Lubbesmeyers and Brodrick became HDAL members in 2016. The Lubbesmeyers collaborate on painted cityscapes. Brodrick shows realistic acrylic landscapes.
