The Franklin Crossing Building
Art in the Atrium at Franklin Crossing, 550 NW Franklin, celebrates First Friday, November 2, 2012, from 5 – 8 pm with Abstraction, a fine art exhibit featuring Sandy Brooke, Erin Kay, Pat Oertley, Randy Redfield and Galen Rudd.
Sandy Brooke exhibits oil/mixed media paintings from her series “Fate and Luck” expressing, in a saturated palette, her personal experience of contemporary and historical subjects such as helicopters, Sanskrit calligraphy and dragonflies layered over abstracted backgrounds. Erin Kay shows lushly layered, abstracted encaustic paintings developed while exploring our cultural and organic systems and finding frequent paradoxes and interconnections we experience every day but often overlook.
Pat Oertley presents acrylic and oil stick paintings from the ongoing series Layers and Fragments reflective of her late husband’s journey through Alzheimer’s as well as her new Jazz Series reflecting the influence of the music of jazz greats on her paintings. Galen Rudd presents mixed media with 3D surface applications of chains and metal on wood.
Randy Redfield quotes composer John Cage, “I have nothing to say, so I say it” referring to the abstract concept of separate reality in painting. Heavy layering of acrylic on wood, sanded to bare wood, then brought again to surface with oils and pencil describes both his technique and defines his compositional elements.
Noi, the newly opened Thai restaurant at Franklin Crossing, will serve appetizers and wine with the popular Tommy Leroy trio performing jazz. Billye Turner organizes exhibitions for Franklin Crossing and provides additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Paul Scott Gallery is happy to introduce Oregon artist, Mytchell Mead as a new artist to our gallery. Combining patina’d steel and weathered reclaimed wood, Mead takes his inspiration from the high desert and its volcanic palate. “There is both subtlety and drama in our landscape. For me, weathered wood and rust masterfully articulate the interplay of the human spirit with our unique environment.”
Come meet Mytchell and enjoy his new work with us on First Friday Art Walk, November 2 from 5-9pm.
We are just down the breezeway opposite off Wall Street.

Take the elevator to the third floor and join the Schmid Malone attorneys as a part of your First Friday Art Walk! Schmid Malone is proud to host artist Heather TenBroek as a part of this month’s Art Walk. Known also as a busy real estate broker in the community, Heather TenBroek has been able to show her work in various venues in Bend over the past few years and is extremely honored to have the opportunity to share her inner expressions with others. She uses mostly recycled and found materials, such as rusty metal and old windows, mixed with vibrant acrylics for a natural and organic 3-dimensional experience. Her recent series, the Rustoration Project, was born out of inspiration from artists David Kinker and Pam Nichols and her passion for transforming the old and discarded into something new and fun.
We’ll have the beautifully meditative art of Nancie Zivertz-Gertler and smooth jams from Buck and the Diggs!
Laci Fisher, creater and owner of Lolaby, uses her talent to create individually handcrafted wood blocks adorned with embellishments and decoupaged with paper to make an original piece of art. She will gladly custom make any type of blocks to enhance a babys nursery or child’s room. You pick a theme, color and saying and she will amaze you with her creativity!
Kent Smith began his lifelong interest in woodcraft helping his father in his cabinet shop in 1940’s Spokane. The ideal teacher, Kent Sr was a perfectionist who accepted only precision and attention to detail. Smith recalls his father’s advise, “Measure at least twice before cutting. Anyone can make a mistake-only a fool makes the same mistake twice.”
Over the decades, in garages from Beaverton to Skamania, from West Covina to Santa Fe and now Bend, a wide variety of cabinetry, furniture and woodcarvings have been turned out by Smith. Several automobiles never resided in a garage that became “The Shop.”
Now due to the cost of materials only woodcarvings remain. Sharing his thoughts Smith comments, “Woodcarving is a slow, tedious, time-consuming process ill suited to the hurry up pace of modern life. Power tools are not much help, the computer not at all. One cut, one small chip at a time. With the usual life interruptions, some of my several hundred carvings have taken months to complete. Nevertheless, it has been fun if never lucrative. The pleasure’s in the doing.”
Julie L. Friel is a Miami based artist, that is now bringing her street art styles and pop art inspired works to Bend Oregon. Its A Pacific Northwest meets Miami, FL. kinda vibe featuring skateboards and other creations.
Check her out at Velvet on first Friday art-walk in November.
