The Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery presents Rhythm in Vision, an exhibition of artworks by ten members of the High Desert Art League (HDAL) of Central Oregon opening on August 9. Participating artists – Cindy Briggs, Helen Brown, Patricia Clark, Cameron Kaseberg, David Kinker, Jacqueline Newbold, Vivian Olsen, Janice Rhodes, Barbara Slater and Joren Traveller – will be present at a reception in their honor on Friday, August 14, 5–7 pm in the upper gallery.
HDAL is a professional artists’ group organized to support the advancement of member artists. The league, a cooperative business for participants, promotes their artwork through exhibitions as well as offering interactive education.
League members are accomplished artists working in a wide variety of mediums as exemplified in the Sunriver Lodge exhibition.
Briggs presents sun-drenched, color saturated scenes in water-media materials reflecting her journeys to Europe, Asia and Australia.
Brown’s vibrant watercolors reveal her interest in unusual perspective, dramatic light and the texture of her chosen papers. Clark, founder of Atelier 6000 and a nationally respected master printmaker, interprets the local landscape in striking abstract images.
Kaseberg exhibits art rich in texture and storytelling using a solvent transfer process on his photographic imagery. Kinker’s intense study of aesthetics in nature guides the creation of his colorful, abstract acrylic paintings. Newbold’s travels lend a limitless source of imagery for her watercolors capturing moments in time.
Olsen shows wildlife paintings in watercolor and other mediums that characterize an animals’ behaviors and personalities. Rhodes creates paintings in contemporary realism rich in layered color embedded in the hot wax medium of encaustic.
Slater’s energetic oil paintings of sheep and a comical goat feature bold brushwork in rich pigmentation. Traveller, an avid naturalist, draws from that source in her oils of horses featured in the exhibit.
The Sunriver Resort invites the public to the August 14 opening reception and to the exhibit, open to the public all hours. Billye Turner, art consultant, organizes the art exhibits for the resort.
