The month of August is just one big celebration at the Artists’ Gallery of Sunriver. This celebration of art will culminate on Saturday, August 8, when everyone is invited to party with the artists between 4 and 7pm at the gallery. Food and spirits are provided. The work of four of the gallery’s most popular artists will be featured.
Marjorie Coissairt, already well known for her beautiful and ethereal paintings of nature, provides new pieces to capture the hearts of her devoted collectors. One painting, Summer’s Light, is a delicate forest scene in greens, lavenders and blues. A transparent butterfly poses on Queen Anne’s Lace. Those who already have a Coissairt piece displayed at home will be pleased to find that the artist has added small inspirational clay plaques to her repertoire.
Karla Proud, ever popular for her beautiful Oregon Sunstone jewelry, has placed the spotlight on another beautiful Oregon stone – the rare Owyhee Blue Opal. The opals are mined on private property near the Owyhee River in Southeast Oregon. The stones are actually translucent when held up to the light. The clean lines of her sterling silver jewelry setting designs really serve to highlight the beauty of the pure blue colored stone.
Bonnie Junell is well known locally not only for her beautiful oil paintings, but also for her fun and popular Sip and Paint classes at the gallery. Bonnie’s paintings of red poppies, real eye catchers, are going to have some competition from some new pieces added to her collection. One piece features the blues, greens and lavenders of a lily pond. A single pink flower lifts its head above the lily pads to catch the viewer’s attention.
Stella Rose Powell produces fine handcrafted jewelry for the gallery. Each of her forged, hand wrought metal pieces is uniquely beautiful. The delicate jewelry pieces contrast the beauty of her gold and silver materials. Many pieces have precious stones or pearls highlighting the 18-24 karat gold. Other pieces utilize a Korean technique called kuem-boo.
