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!

Re: “The "Exposure" Carrot

Thank you so much for writing this Teafly. Another very common misconception is that artists can write off the value of the donated art. Nope! The artist can only write off the supplies. Most artists don't even make enough money where that supply write off even makes a difference.

Re: “Artwatch: Sarah More & Eva Ferrell

Each painting I see of Sarah's is cooler than the one before. Her artistic genius is joyfully
precise and rhythmically creative. She defies gravity in deftly making her way around a color pallet with a paint brush and successfully uses this incredible skill to conjure startling happy magic for the soul.

Re: “Mysterious Bikelane Art

Those road stencils make me smile. My question is whether the paint used is streets-department paint, or hardware store rattle-can stuff? If it's the professional paint, then the stenciled art will stick around for a while. Otherwise, not so much.

Re: “Honoring History with Art

Moving the bungalows from their original location is NOT how you "preserve" history! McMenamins is obviously unclear on that concept.
