Artist Gallery Ushers in the Fall Colors of October
October ushers in one of the most beautiful seasons in Central Oregon. Nature brings back some of the brilliant colors that we had in spring. At the Artists’ Gallery in Sunriver great art features the same splendor that we find in nature. The pace of Sunriver activities has slowed a bit, but you can still enjoy time viewing art and talking with the artists at the regularly scheduled Second Saturday Celebration on Saturday, October 8 from 4-6pm. If that time doesn’t fit into your schedule, the gallery is open daily (except Tuesdays) 10am-6pm.
Featured this month is oil painter, Bill Hamilton. His painting, Broken Top Sunset captures the wonderful colors of the season. Hamilton’s images of beautiful Central Oregon scenes are always popular at the gallery. His love for birds his apparent in his many captivating scenes that include them as a focal point. Another featured painting, Backyard Poppies was inspired by his wife Evie’s gardening talents. Hamilton offers pieces that range from large original landscapes to small high quality prints.
Also featured is potter, Dori Kite. A long time resident of Central Oregon, Kite’s pottery pieces have been enjoyed by locals for years. Many have enjoyed a good cup of coffee or tea in one of her beautifully crafted cups. Many pieces have images that bring the local area to mind. Although very accomplished on the pottery wheel, Kite also creates a wide selection of pieces using a slab building technique.
As wonderful as her more utilitarian pieces, her slab pieces allow the artist to show off her creative artistic side. Some of the vessels are whimsical in nature including boxes with lids, serving platters and handing flower vases. Other pieces are inspired by the lines of topographical maps and earthen colors and textures.
