Memories to Quilt at Footzone
‘Heaven Can Wait’ and other races inspired this memory quilt. I chose bright colors to celebrate a worthy race well run. Do you know a runner who’d like their T-shirts preserved in a one-of-a-kind memory quilt? I'd be happy to help!
Friday, April 5th, Memories to Quilt will be at the Foot Zone, for their First Friday event. Please come by and visit. Let’s talk about your collection of race shirts!
Free Admission, more info: https://www.facebook.com/events/2231007730561219/

Jacob Joseph Norris at Found Natural Goods
First Friday APRIL 2019 plans entail...
Found is, of course, serving complimentary 100% agave tequila margaritas ––radical mixer to be announced–– with the colorful company of local plein-air oil painter, Jacob Joseph Norris.
"Jacob Joseph Norris is a plein-air oil painter, meaning he paints in the open air. His portfolio is filled with owls, trees, power lines, scenes and colors of Central Oregon, but there is also a magnificent transcendent nature to his work, beyond the range of mere human experience. It is as if he is able to catch things in their hidden moments before they are ready to be seen." - quoted from a Source Weekly article on Jacob in 2016.
Jacob's art fills the walls and shelves of Found and has since day one with his birds--inspired by our space. We are pleased to be hosting him for an official artist exhibition on April 5, 2019 for First Friday April.
