Re: “2019 Women in Art

Thank you, Cari, for focusing a spotlight on women artists and the people and organizations who work to help women artists be seen in our community. I want to add you to the top of this list of notable and valuable contributors to the Central Oregon arts community. - Jane Quale, Bend Art Center

Re: “The Ups and Downs in Art

I’ve long thought Bend has a Sister City waiting to be united in Santa Fe, NM. The “Royal City” has a sustained and diverse arts culture from which we could learn much. In turn, Santa Fe seeks to develop its recreation potential. ¡Vamos a encontrar nuestra media naranja!

Re: “The Ups and Downs in Art

This is so sad to me. I am seeing a decreasing value for creativity across our society at a time when it is desperately needed...for hope, for new problems coming at the human species,for our mental health, and for our ability to bond and love across the planet. I will continue to work on Bends creative spirit into the future...where I can! Kathy Hoyt, Creativity Psychologist

Re: “The Ups and Downs in Art

The loss of Bright Place is a void I doubt can be filled. They brought a vibrancy to a lesser used area,and unfortunately in Bend, that vibrancy was seen as a dollar sign. But without Stu and Abby,I see the area falling fallow again soon. They will be missed.

Re: “Crosstitutes Get Shut Down, Reborn

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great article about something that many might not even give a second glance. What my daughter and her friend went through was very distressing and hurtful for them. People need to pay attention to this as it is just one example of many of free speech, especially that of young women (and feminists), being shut down.

Have they experienced rent increases?

Re: “Local Paintings Censored

The complaint probably came from a trump voter. Oh, the irony!

Re: “Local Paintings Censored

So it's okay for a President to actually says these vile things, but not for the paintings with the quotes to hang in Franklin Crossing? The person who complained needs to take the stick out of his/her ass, get angry about the inappropriate, hateful man elected (by NOT the majority) and not worry about a few pieces of art.

Re: “Local Paintings Censored

This is truly remarkable. This is why this town will forever be juvenile, caught in arrested development. Hiding behind the fear of offending people's sensibilities or promoting so-called bipartisan civility is just yet another example of how Bend's hypocrisy reigns supreme. Just 2 years ago City Hall gave a proclamation against hate. Everyone pat themselves on the back and pretended like they cared about the plight of others.

So few that live here have anything at stake in this political climate and they continue to behave as such. Bend loves to act progressive: honoring women, decrying sexual violence, claiming moral high ground when taking a stance against racism. But that's all it is: an act. The second anything of even minute substance enters the foray, everyone shudders, frowns, and wants to whitewash the harsh realities that exist all over this country. Yes, even here. Especially here.

Grow up Bend. Get your head out of the sand. Step down from your pedestal, join us down here, in reality, where people get hurt, murdered, brutalized, raped, and lynched. All in your name, all in the name of civilized society, all in the name of preservation of the culture you enjoy.

Wake up and smell your prejudice, Bend. You stink of it entirely.

Re: “Local Paintings Censored

The people who complained and forced the censorship of art are cowards hiding behind the cloak of secrecy. They need to demonstrate some courage and go public or they need to be exposed. I for one will boycott Franklin Crossing eateries and let them know why. The idea tshat children would be exposed to these words is ludicrous. Thanks to the amoral miscreant in the White House they have already been exposed to this and much more significant profanity--such as kidnapping of refugee children. Expose the cowardly censors! Tell us who they are. --Michael Funke

Re: “Local Paintings Censored

So those three words were offensive on Bullwinkel's art, but weren't they even more offensive when uttered publicly by the person who sits in the Oval Office?

Re: “Color class at Bend Art & Bend Burlesque

I want to mention the work of Gabino Amaya Cacho. Do not you think creative and attractive abstract pointillism? Like all the abstract, it is you who give meaning to the work; Everyone sees something different, it is a way to share the imagination and discover the similarities and differences that each person has. Take a time, it is very original what this Spanish painter does

Re: “The "Exposure" Carrot

Excellent article Teafly. You have succinctly said it. What we all feel, year after year of being asked to work for "exposure". This is a small town, and like you said, we are all fairly exposed or we wouldn't be asked! Thank you for this!
