Monica Helms: Local Artist

Monica Helms: Local Artist

Helms is one of many artists selling at October's 20-Dollar Art Show
Growing up in the Ozarks, Monica Helms found a world of magic just outside her door. Her days were spent watching animals and marveling in the wonder that is nature.

In Celebration of the Rural Artist

An artist co-working space opens in Prineville
Walking into the storefront of Central Oregon's newest arts co-working space, Rick Steber & Company-Makers, one is struck by its genuine, cowboy feel. Apt, given that it's located in Prineville, a community whose historical roots are in ranching and mining.

The Tour of Art

Bend Tour Company offers a fun way to view public art
People can take so many tours in Central Oregon—tours of rivers, breweries and pub houses, tours of the marijuana industry... even tours of the most photographic spaces. But what about taking a tour of art?

A Trip for Art's Sake

A day tour of the Portland Art Museum

New Gallery Opens in Prineville

Rimrock Gallery showcases fine art reflective of the West
The doors of a new gallery opened up this past weekend in Prineville, and the community came out to celebrate. Pamela Claflin—who started Bend's Mockingbird Gallery in 1989 and sold it in 2007—is behind the new venture.

Work in a Beautiful Place

Deadline ahead for PLAYA artist residencies
Artist residencies can be excellent opportunities for artists to spend focused time on their work in an environment away from the demands of daily life. In addition to studio facilities or basic work space, they can offer place-based inspiration: an environment in which artists working in divergent fields can exchange ideas and give artists a sense that their work is valued in both a physical and metaphysical context.

A Downtown Art Forage

A stroll through town to find art currently on display
I often hear people say, "I don't understand art—I just know what I like." As an arts educator, this is always my opportunity to jump in, because the truth is, knowing what you like is the point of art.

Central Oregon and the Space Race

High Desert Museum Opens Moon Country Exhibit
Fifty years ago, on July 20, 1969, the Apollo Moon Module Eagle landed on the moon and Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong took some big steps for mankind. To commemorate the 50-year anniversary of that event, the High Desert Museum has a new exhibit, titled "Moon Country: Oregon and the Space Race," which highlights Central Oregon's role in training the astronauts of that era by exposing them to the area's unique volcanic landscape.

Bend Art Center and Atelier 6000 to leave Box Factory

In the meantime, two exhibitions from the unique lens of Andries Fourie
The Bend Art Center and Atelier 6000 will be leaving the space in The Box Factory Aug. 18. For now, Bend Art Center won't reopen, but will work as a "de-centered function as a de-centered art center," according to a letter sent July 5.
