Tue, April 25, 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
Our fourth and final High Desert Speaker Series event in Bend will conclude with a discussion of the many varied ways that desert landscapes inspire us, featuring a panel of award-winning artists whose muse is the high desert itself: Nancy Pobanz, Artist in Residence at the Rimrock Draw Rock Shelter archaeological site; Janet Matson, a ceramicist and member of the Clay Guild of the Cascades; Deborah Ford, photographer and executive director of Playa; Carla Fox, a metalsmith and founder of Art in the High Desert; and Monica Helms, an oil and acrylic painter specializing in wildlife.
From the dramatic light and rich textures of the desert landscape, to the resilient spirit of the land, this talk will leave you inspired to see Oregon's high desert through the eyes of an artist. This event will be moderated by ONDA's Gena Goodman-Campbell.
This event will include a silent art auction with proceeds to benefit ONDA, so bring your checkbooks!
The event will take place at Bend's Old Stone Church, 157 NW Franklin Ave in downtown Bend. The event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Doors will open at 6:30p.m. with the speaker beginning at 7p.m. For more information about other speakers in this series, visit ONDA.org/HighDesertSeries
