Local artists on display at Fall Art Show posted on 09/07/2017

The Rendezvous Grill and Mt. Hood Art Online have already teamed up to showcase artwork by local artists on the restaurant’s walls. On Sunday, Sept. 24, more art and the artists behind them will be on hand as part of the Fall Art Show and Wine Tasting, also featuring free wine tastings and hors d'oeuvres.

“It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon,” said Caryn Tilton, who started Mt. Hood Art Online, a website where mountain artists can gain greater exposure and connecting artists, patrons and collectors, two years ago. “We’re hoping for nice weather so we can put things out on the patio.”

Tilton noted that the show will include a range of works, including oil paintings, water colors and mixed media, with artwork also available for purchase. A number of artists are also expected to be on hand to discuss their art.

“For the artists, it’s an opportunity to share their art and perhaps sell something,” Tilton said.

Tilton added that if the event is well attended, she hopes to bring it back, perhaps on an annual or biannual basis.

The Fall Art Show and Wine Tasting will be held from 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24 at the Rendezvous Grill, 67149 Hwy. 26 in Welches. For more information, visit www.MtHoodArtOnline.com.

An artful season

The Wy’East Artisans Guild will present its latest art show, “Off Balance,” featuring works inspired by the Sandy Actors Theatre’s (SAT) production of, “How the Other Half Lives,” from Friday, Sept. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 1, at SAT, 39181 Pioneer Blvd. in Sandy.

The featured artist for this show is JoAnne Rohweder, who draws her inspiration from her surroundings. For this show, she painted an unintentional protest, contrasting our modern city and nature. She will also be displaying her art all September at the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce, 38979 Pioneer Blvd. in Sandy.

The public is also invited to an artists’ reception at 6:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, at SAT, for a viewing of the art with artists’ comments followed by a dress-rehearsal performance of the SAT production. Seating at the reception is on a first-come basis and donations will be accepted to benefit the Guild’s non-profit public programs.

The Watercolor Society of Oregon (WSO) will hold the 2017 Fall Show, with an artists reception from 4-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Visual Arts Gallery, Building 19, on the campus of Mount Hood Community College, 26000 SE Stark Street in Gresham. The show, featuring the theme “Columbia River Colors,” runs from Saturday, Oct. 7 through Thursday, Oct. 26. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed on weekends and holidays, and parking is free.

Approximately 300 paintings were submitted for the show, with only 80 selected by the show’s juror, Paul Jackson, a contemporary watercolorist. All of the participating artists are from Oregon and all original paintings in the show will be for sale.
