Rise Up International and Larry and His Flask Team Up

Posted By on Sat, Feb 15, 2014 at 4:22 PM

In an uber-local mash-up of charitable awesomeness, Jesse Roberts of arts organization Rise Up International and Jesse Marshal of Bend's own folk-punk heroes Larry and His Flask, are planning a trip to Nicaragua to build a recording studio and cultivate art exchanges with Bend's sister city, Condega. Learn more below and donate to this project at riseupinternational.com.

From February 23rd to March 4th a small group from Rise Up International will be traveling to Nicaragua to conduct art workshops and help with an indigenous music preservation project. The project will consist of an arts exchange. Artwork will be taken and hung at schools, public areas, youth centers, inside & out. We will collaborate with local artists and students in Nicaragua and then bring back the art to hang in Bend, Oregon. Condega is a sister city of Bend and this project is part on ongoing goodwill endeavors to foster positive relationships between the two cities and countries. This project is 100% independent with partial sponsorship from the Bend/Condega sister city group. We are still in need of funding for art and recording studio supplies. Donations can be made by clicking the button below. 100% will go to the Nicaragua project and not for any administrative purposes.

Impressive Art from a 4-Year-Old

Posted By on Wed, Oct 2, 2013 at 4:33 PM

Generally, 4-year-olds aren't known for their artistic ability, but artist Mica Angela Hendricks has turned her daughter's doodlings into works of art. By drawing a head, and letting her daughter finish the body, she has created an interesting and weird art project. Some of it is okay, some of it is really good, and some is just plain weird. Check it out for yourself here.

Trade a Baton for a Paintbrush: 26.2 Hour Painting Marathon for an artistic cause

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 1:56 PM

Base Camp, a startup arts non-profit, is all about bringing a measure of art to Bend’s athletic lifestyle. The organizations title is a play on mountaineering and, this weekend, they will host a marathon style painting collaboration lasting 26.2 hours, one for every mile of a traditional marathon.
The group hopes to open its doors this fall, said founder Darlene Becker, a local artist and certified art therapist. They are looking for a space downtown to house workshops and open studio time with the goal of providing art education to an underserved audience.

We Have Free Tickets to COUNTRY FAIR!!

Posted By on Mon, Jul 8, 2013 at 10:29 AM

The shadow of guilt I felt lasted for a number of years. After a brief stint as a casual Dead head, catching shows from Foxboro to Alpine Valley, my music tastes shifted. Even so, for years I carried around a shoe box full of bootlegs (especially fond of Cornell 7/77). Then, one day when cleaning out my closet, I decided it was time for a clean break - and I tossed the tapes into the garbage. The next day I heard on the radio that Jerry had died.

The Source is giving away three full day passes for this weekend's Oregon Country Fair. Submitted your "I was where when Jerry died" story by Wednesday 5 pm and we will award the best/most poignant submission with passes for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Story Behind This Week's Extra Awesome Cover Art

Posted By on Thu, Jan 3, 2013 at 11:49 AM

Bozeman, Mont. resident Jarrod Eastman is the artist behind this week's super-awesome Source cover. We met him at an art show in Bend this summer and fell in love with his paintings. You can find his work at Jrodart.com. To see the latest from JRod, check his active blog site. It seems he's not just painting anymore.

He wrote this about a recent rhinoceros-on-wheels sculpture:
"Three Dimensional seems to be the newest direction. I am already trying to conceive of a way to bring this 7-inch sculpture into an 8-foot-high art piece that you could climb on and ride. Exploring concrete as a material."

Here are two of my JRod favorites:

Read it today: Rise Up Director Teaches Art to Palestinians Amidst Recent Fighting

Posted By on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 10:23 AM

We have to admit, after learning more about about local nonprofit Rise Up International and its director, Jesse Roberts, for our piece in today's issue called "To the Streets of Palestine" we're kind of believers in the work this organization is doing.

Rise Ups director, Jesse Roberts, works with Palestinian youth in November, amidst the fighting between Hamas and Israel.

You've probably come across Rise Up through the Roots festival, which they produce, or through their merchandise, which you would probably recognize if you saw.

But all that is just how the organization raises cash. It's what they do with that money that's really interesting—providing scholarships for kids to go to secondary school in Nicaraqua, keeping schools open in India for really poor kids there, and, now, teaching street art to Palestinian youth.

Central Oregon's Art In The High Desert Festival Honored

Posted By on Wed, Dec 26, 2012 at 5:36 PM

The juried arts and crafts festival known as Art in the High Desert has been nationally recognized by Greg Lawler's Art Fair Sourcebook.
This publication ranked our festival as the 14th best in the Top 25 events nationwide for Sales of Fine Art in 2012.
The annual festival, which occurs every August, has only been showcasing the arts and crafts since 2008 so to be honored in such a short span is a great accomplishment.
Congrats to all the organizers and artists who have made this festival one of the most successful events nationwide.
Here's the rest of the top 25 list:

Mitt Bashing!

How many licks will it take to get to the center of a Mitt Romney pinata?

Posted By on Wed, May 2, 2012 at 5:02 PM

Our cover design team here at the Source Weekly is top notch. Check out the Romney pinata they crafted to make this week's cover:

It's filled with lots of Swiss bank accounts, flip flops (get it?), and Cadillacs.

Also in this week's paper (on stands this afternoon!) you'll find our endorsements for the upcoming election, a Cinco de Mayo sipping guide and much, much more. Always MORE!

Grant will fund CO arts and culture map

Grant will fund a new Central Oregon arts and culture tourism map.

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2012 at 5:27 PM

A local arts organization just won a grant for $6,000. That sounds like small potatoes until you hear what the Arts and Culture Council for Central Oregon is going to do with the money. It’s pretty cool.

It’s sort of like the Ale Trail, but rather than following a map to the local watering holes, the arts group will create a special arts and culture trail guide showing locals and visitors the way to the region’s museums, art and entertainment venues.

The new map project will be a special collaboration of a new group called the Arts and Culture Alliance and several other regional arts and culture organizations.

If successful, Central Oregon could even get a special Scenic Byways highway designation affiliated with the map, which will encourage visitors to stop by places from the museum in Warm Springs to the Tower Theater in Bend

Director of the Arts and Culture Council, Cate O’Hagan has been working to build the new alliance for over a year, and put in for the grant several weeks ago.

“It’s a relatively small amount of money that multiplies over a large reason to create potentially big results,” said O’Hagan. “It adds a necessary component to our tourism offerings in the region that has been missing.”

The grant will be matched with $5,000 worth of support and work from the Central Oregon Visitors Association, the Deschutes County tourism organization.

“We are delighted to work with COVA to see this thing through,” said O’Hagan.

Look for the new map to roll out sometime in the next six to eight months.
