To celebrate Mother’s Day, LUMIN Art Studios, 19855 Fourth St., Tumalo, is hosting a “Mother-Child Art Show,” featuring art by local mothers and their children. Each mother’s work will be displayed alongside a piece of art from her child, or the two will have created a collaborative piece. Participants are of all ages and have used a variety of art mediums.

The community is invited to experience the moving, playful art show at LUMIN’s monthly open studio event from 1-4 p.m. Saturday. The four resident artists, Alisha Vernon, McKenzie Mendel, Lisa Marie Sipe and Natalie Gshwandtner, will have their current work on display.

Caldera prepares for Student Showcase

Nonprofit arts organization Caldera will present its 2014 Student Showcase at Edwin Brown Education Center, 850 S.W. Antler Ave., Redmond, from 2-5 p.m. May 17.

The showcase features artwork created by middle and high school students during Central Oregon Caldera classes, workshops and intensive weekends. A presentation about the program will begin at 3 p.m.

“Student showcases give our youth the chance to share their voices, views and accomplishments with their families and friends. It’s also a great time for Caldera friends and supporters to meet the youth and touch the magic of what they do,” said Tricia Snell, Caldera’s executive director. “And while the showcases feature some wonderful art, what we are really celebrating is the personal and creative journey of each student.”

The showcase includes stop motion animation videos, collaborative drawings, photography, printmaking, and murals created with the theme “The Geography of We: mapping story, imagination and place.”
