Our display stands will show fused glass by Deb Borine. Her pieces include unique glass "landscapes" of our beautiful countryside, as well as plates and bowls rich in layered colors. Our walls will hold Linda Swindle's watercolors of kaleidoscope-hued animals, both wild and domestic. The garment rack will sport Swindle's hand-painted silk scarves. Also on display will be Jacqueline Newbold's watercolors of her recent travels to France and Italy.
Come in and see our special display this month.
Jenn Culp-Art Walk at Velvet
Born and raised in rural Idaho, Jenn spent countless hours outside. Her family road-tripped all around the west camping and exploring. Jenn’s parents both studied biology/botany and are avid birders. They taught her a lot about the natural world, and have always inspired her love of ecology and living creatures.
Living in this current moment/ our environment in a precarious state, humankind learning how to cope with the impact we make...her paintings have evolved into a sort of meditation, a therapy for dealing with emotional conflict concerning our environment. Grateful for the ecological systems and all the elements that compose life.

Cause-driven coffee?! Yep! Please come join us at J Dub this Friday as we welcome Bend's own Coffee4Kids as they taste out their deliciously smooth cold brew coffee... also give a shot at their CBD-infused cold brew as it swirls through a house-made one-off specialty cocktail!
