Birds Sing Like Artists Create… with Joy!

(Tumblers by Steven Provence)

April is the beginning of that special time of year when the days really seem longer and brighter… the birds are happily singing their tunes and some flowers are showing their colors! Please join the 30 local Central Oregon artists at our monthly 2nd Saturday, April 13 from 4 to 6pm. Meet the artists and enjoy wine, beer and nibbles.

We have two featured artists at the gallery this month. Wade Womack works primarily with the reduction wood block printing technique. His collection of Central Oregon bird images really stands out. Wade has also produced a “Field Guide” booklet of local birds where you can write your own field notes and add color to the images. Reduction prints are a multi-colored process that is done on the same block. The wood block is carved between each color, layering the details and colors.

Our second featured artist is Steven Provence, pottery. Steve has been making pots in Bend since 2005. Most of his work is wheel thrown but also incorporates hand building techniques. He describes his work as “contemporary functional ceramics.” We love his drinking vessels with an indent in the perfect place to be held. Steve says, “Working with clay is both an honor and a joy.”
