Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery-Quarterly Fine Art Exhibition Series

Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery announces the Quarterly Fine Art Exhibition Series. The series inaugurates four quarterly exhibitions yearly, designed to suggest the four seasons.

The new exhibition series reflects the Monica Setziol-Phillips sculpture completed during the 2015 renovation of the Sunriver Resort Lodge. Commissioned by Tom O’Shea, Managing Director, the sculpture hangs over the main fireplace in the lodge as the most recent addition to the resort’s permanent art collection.

Comprised of four carved panels of branching aspens, Setziol-Phillips’ design also features horizontal woven panels depicting the Central Oregon seasonal landscape. Inspired by the artist’s sculpture, the new quarterly exhibition schedule suggests seasonal themes of Winter, December – February; Spring, March – May; Summer, June – August; Fall, September – November.

Winter and spring exhibitions of 2016 will shorten to two month periods to accommodate the new quarterly schedule commencing fully in June. Opening February 1, the winter quarter exhibit features the oil paintings of William Logan.

Logan, raised in Montana and later of Arizona, moved to Bend in 2010. Initially, detailed graphite drawing was the self-taught artist’s primary art form. His drawings of ranchers, cattle, and roundups appeared in The West, East of the Cascades exhibit and his innovative drawings of silverware arrangements in the De La Cuisine exhibit, both shown in the Sunriver Lodge 2015 summer season.

Logan also developed interest and skill in oil painting after his move to Bend. Travel in the Northwest and Canada during the past summer inspired his current dramatic mountain series. These paintings appear in the Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery on the lower level located on the main floor.

The artist’s dramatic oil, Rocky Mountain Paradise, depicts rugged peaks overlooking a high mountain lake during winter. Snow laden clouds overhang the icy mountains and a dense fog descends from the foothills over the forest, shadowing the lake.

Closer to home, Logan exhibits an oil diptych of Broken Top and Todd Lake with snow covered mountains and slanted afternoon light glowing on the lake. Also showing is a large, brightly hued oil of majestic cranes flying in a setting sun.

Ann Bullwinkel, Joanne Donaca, Russell Wells and other artists join Logan in the Winter Quarter Fine Art Exhibit at the resort.

Sunriver Resort invites the public to the exhibition open all hours. Billye Turner organizes the Sunriver Resort Lodge art exhibits with info at 503-780-2828 or
