Sunriver Resort offers 245 guestrooms designed with contemporary Northwestern sensibility, including a fireplace and lounging deck with a view.
The Betty Gray Gallery in the Sunriver Lodge continues to feature an exciting lineup of artwork for local enjoyment. Stroll through the exhibits located on the main level of the Lodge as well as upstairs. Artists and exhibits rotate on a regular basis.
We invite you to come and see the new art at the Lodge while you admire the brisk weather, and sip a beer or flavored latte to bring the two together.
The upstairs gallery will be hosting an array of watercolor paintings from a trio of accomplished artists, all members of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Crosswater-based Liz Haberman takes a traditional approach to her work, working from photographs to create realistic scenes using her professional technique. Sunriver-based Helen Brown uses rice paper as a background and mixes a technique of wax and watercolor to add a unique texture to her works. Redmond-based Rebecca Sentgeorge is the most experimental of the trio, using a variety of collage materials in addition to her superior technique. The three combine to provide a remarkable overview of technique and artistry. The show will run through the end of the year.
Downstairs, Bend artist Marjorie Hamlin creates semi-abstract acrylic landscapes bursting with color and texture. Acrylic allows her to throw paint in pure splashes of color directly from the jar to the canvas, moving her imagination directly to paper. She calls her work, “fictitious landscapes,” given her opinion that true creativity does not just come from sitting in a spot and painting a nice picture of what is there. This show will run through the end of November.
It’s truly a treat that these four accomplished regional women all will be showing together. It’s also a treat to announce that the Artists’ Gallery and Betty Gray Gallery will again be hosting a youth artists’ challenge for local schools. Challenge winners will be displayed in the lower gallery during the Christmas holidays.
Make sure to stop by the Betty Gray Gallery when you’re in the area to see all these delightful artists!
