Appealing Art Show at the Sunriver Library

Come visit this captivating show by two artists in two different genres. Chandra Eijnsbergen is sharing her handcrafted jewelry which has been inspired by her extensive travels, varied cultures and nature. She works not only with metals, gemstones and beading, but wire and leather work as well. Chandra has enjoyed doing jewelry for twelve years finding it a creative and relaxing endeavor for her.

Chandra is presently the librarian at the East Bend public library, but previously was the librarian at Sunriver. She is delighted you can enjoy her jewelry on display in time for holiday gifting.

Paula Matthiesen will show a series of abstract paintings which she calls The Wild Things. These are bright, abstract and exuberant paintings made with molding paste and oils on a dark painted canvas.

She enjoys her creativity and loves not knowing what her paintings will become. The viewer will find their own story and personal connection with her pieces.

Paula also shows Dangerous Beauties, which features landscapes and seascapes on several saw blades which her husband prepared for artistic use. She has been director of several galleries and has taught classes in Washington as well as up and down the Willamette Valley. She is a multi-award winning artist, and her art has been displayed in many Oregon galleries as well California. She and her husband now live in the Sunriver area.
