February at Artists’ Gallery Sunriver Village

((L) Art by Dottie Moniz, (R) Whiskey Barrel Table by Travis Cope)

After the snowy events of January, we are just starting to lift our vision above the snow bunkers to see what is going on in Sunriver. COVID put a hitch in planning for get-together events at the Sunriver Artists’ Gallery, but February will be a good month to come by the Gallery and check out new art pieces. Valentine’s Day is a great motivation to stop in and check out possible gifts for that special someone. A sneaky plan would be to bring the object of your affections to the Second Saturday event on Saturday, February 12 from 4-6pm. While you are enjoying wine, beer and other great refreshments, you can check out what might put a twinkle in the eye of your partner. Perhaps you can have a salesperson stash it away for you and then sneak back later for a purchase. Or perhaps you need to purchase some special cards to send to friends and family.

Two artist demonstrations from 4 to 6pm:
Saturday, February 12.
•  Dottie Moniz: Watercolor Notecards, ready to frame!
•  Cheryl Chapman: Art glass Valentine hearts, each unique

As always, Gallery artists will be present to discuss their work with visitors. Fine Woodwork artist Travis Cope has been working steadily to replace the extremely popular pieces that raced out the door as Christmas gifts. Cope’s unique cutting boards, kitchen utensils, trays, clocks, phone chargers, coasters and small furniture items are beautiful. Cope has used wine/whisky barrels for some pieces, and exotic woods for others. His end tables feature legs enhanced by the inside texture of the barrels.

It is always good to keep an eye on mixed media painter Dottie Moniz because her painting style is always evolving. Drawing inspiration from her surroundings in nature, the artist captures the textures, colors and lines in that palette. Moniz uses multiple techniques and materials to complete each piece. The artist likes to combine abstraction and realism in her work to create artwork with an “edge.” Two of her newest pieces, Of Mt. Bachelor and Woodland Mystery (both 16 x 20 inches), demonstrate the collage technique well.
