Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Did you like our cover this week? We love it! If you want to see quirky, animal-centric art by local artist Megan McGuinness, you just have to take a trip over the mountians. McGuinness's art will be hanging in the Ninkasi Brewery in Eugene starting today.

This weeks cover of the Source.

McGuinness' collection, called "The Unknown Consequences of Floating" will be up in the tap room through February 20th. Here is her artist statement about the collection:

I don't know how to write artist statements, so I just googled how to write one. It said to write it in a language that is easy to understand, so I guess I will opt out for English. In a sense the show is about not knowing where to land ones feet, or which direction to take. Floating can be nice, but eventually there will be a point where you have to fall. I try to show the women wrapped in cocoon like thing, as a feeling of safety from the outside world. People tend to wrap themselves up in worry and anger-they are afraid of letting their skin show. Or maybe they have been burned by the sun before and are fearful of being hurt again. Then they build themselves up in a purgatory of waiting for a sign of which way to turn until they know it's alright to let their skin show. —Megan McGuinness

Here is another of the pieces that will be on display in Eugene. You can check out more of McGuinness' art here.
