Recently Oregon Public news mentioned two persons in Eugene contacted 100 businesses with vacant windows asking to exhibit artwork, and 14 agreed.
We are fortunate in Lakeview artists may exhibit paintings and photographs in the County Courthouse first floor hall. Paisley painters recent show reveled nature as the wellspring of their creativity.
Charter Communications, Inc. at 15 N. F St., generously allowed in their lighted lobby Lake Count Arts and Crafts to exhibit the artwork of 50 talented artists from Lakeview, Adel and Plush during the past 14 months. Charter also announces on local cable 4 the names and mediums of artists.
Mediums have included temari balls, lace, metal gameboards and sculpture, wood carvings and stagecoaches and furniture, china painting, pottery, crochet wedding dress, knitted shawl, horsehair hitching and silver bridle, horsehair braiding hackamores, chaps and chinks, rock and shell jewelry, cut and polished desert rocks, children’s book illustrations, cowboy poetry book, pine needle baskets, pine cone wreaths, decorative gourds, birdhouses, embroidered and pieced quilts, oil and watercolor paintings, graphite drawings, bookbinding, prints, and western photography. Under the enthusiastic leadership of Jenna Schaljo the schools have had several exhibits of students artwork.
We reveal what we have absorbed. Art is a necessary function of society. Viewing and assimilating the wide range of exceptional crafts in Lake County feeds our soul… causes a humming within us. All of these artists deserve an alleluia chorus.
