First Friday highlights

As the calendar page turns, it reveals another First Friday Gallery Walk, and a bevy of art happenings tonight in Bend.

At Red Chair Gallery, 103 N.W. Oregon Ave., “Colors of Summer” opens, with watercolors by Sue Gomen-Honnell, jewelry by Gabrielle Taylor and raku pottery and art by Michael Gwinup.

Or you could check out Paul Scott Fine Art Gallery, 869 N.W. Wall St., and the reception for “Animal Spirit Show,” which pairs artists with young students from River Song School, a Montessori school in Bend. The art is up for auction, and proceeds will go to the River Song art program, with 10 percent being donated to Court Appointed Special Advocates of Central Oregon.

And at Tumalo Art Co., 450 S.W. Powerhouse Drive in the Old Mill District, Danae Bennett Miller’s sculpture and printmaking will be on display.

Student art on display at Barber library

Oregon State University-Cascades students are exhibiting their work through June 13 at Central Oregon Community College’s Rotunda Gallery in the Robert L. Barber Library, 2600 N.W. College way, Bend.

The pieces in the exhibit were created using the digital art program Art Rage, offering a full palette of colors and more than 15 tools, including paintbrushes, pencils and airbrush. Students constructed and composed in layers.

“Creating this work took both critical and creative thinking skills,” said Sandy Brooks, associate professor of art at OSU-Cascades. “Most of these students have some 20 to 30 hours in each project.”
