Each August since 2008 the welcoming banks of the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District in Bend come alive for one of the premier fine art shows in the country: Art in the High Desert (AHD) August 25-27.
AHD showcases new artists every year as well as past favorites. This year the juried show had 697 total applications narrowed down to over 115 artists from across North America including 46 new artists for 2017.
It is a coveted venue for local artists as well and six Central Oregonians are represented this year: Danae Bennet-Miller-Printmaking & Sculpture, Cheryl Chapman-Glass, Kim Chavez-Sculpture, Annie Chrietzberg-Ceramics, Carla Fox-Jewelry and Mary Medrano-2-D Mixed.
