  • One Canvas Cara Thayer and Louie Van Patten share a marriage and a paintbrush

    Cara Thayer and Louie Van Patten's paintings are on display in Ruud Gallery in Bend.
      The vivid, Technicolor hands of Cara Thayer and Louie Van Patten's paintings pull you into the Ruud Gallery as soon as you step into the hushed, cool space. Not super realism, yet not afraid of fooling the eye from twenty paces, the couple's new works have an underlying tension to them, illustrated by wringing, skeletal hands, by grimacing flesh, or, in the case of one dramatic scene, "The Persistence of Repressed Thoughts III," an ambiguous figure jails the other in a contorted headlock. In this painting, the dominant figure is Thayer, the trapped figure Van Patten. But this is an arbitrary acknowledgement. Yes, they are a couple. Yes, they share canvases and brushes, working on large, luscious oil paintings together. No, they can't really point out who painted what. And yes, they get along just fine, if you were wondering.
  • Intelligent Design: Stuart Breidenstein

    Spring Arts and Style profile of Stuart Breidenstein
      Stuart Breidenstein likes to say he creates "jewelry for weirdos." But if that's the case, then Bend has more than a few weirdos drooling over his unique creations: masks made of metal and leather, round-eyed aviator goggles and pendants with polished trapezoids of ebony and moveable gears. Breidenstein's work gathers different media - from wood to copper to bright pink Nerds candy - and imaginatively walks the line between wearable fine art and edgy high fashion.
  • Zen and the Art of Bicycle Maintenance: Building, repairing and teaching safety at Bend's Community BikeShed

      Joe Katroscik is trying to explain something about bicycle parts, while Michael Martin bangs an old frame with a hammer. Pointing towards the front of the bike in progress, Katroscik says, "See this joint, what's it called Michael? A lug?" "You big lug," Martin chimes in, clanging away. Not acknowledging the joke, Katroscik continues to talk bike mechanics and the mission of Bend's Community BikeShed.
