Two Artists Explore Collage

by Laura Fendel

by Brauna Ritchie

ORA artists Laurie and Brauna took a collage workshop from Teresa Weil. You'll typically find Laurie creating fabric art, while Brauna works in fused glass and mixed media.

Looking at their work here you can easily see the influences of their usual media as they approached collage under Teresa's tutelage!!!!!    Great stuff Laurie and Brauna! It will be interesting to see the influence of this class on your chosen media!

Beer, Spirits,and Food- OH MY!

Widmer makes high quality beer and we were so very fortunate to experience their generosity at our Taste of Art Event. Thank you Widmer for donating free beer samples to our crowd!
Visit their brew pub for wonderful food and great beer!!!!! Grab some bottles to keep in the fridge I've got some in my fridge right now!).... It's some of the best beer around!    THANK YOU WIDMER!!!!!!!

It's time to confess....I don't usually drink spirits. I am a wine and beer gal. Eastside has made a convert out of me!  Everything I sampled was wonderful but the rum won my heart. I fell in love with the ginger spiced rum! 
Thank You Eastside for your generosity in donating samples to our art opening.  I have yet to visit any of your 5 stores....but that will soon change.   Folks, you have to sample their products....liquers, spirits....they do tours!   

Who makes the best felafel in pdx? These folks do! You have to visit their food cart on Interstate....they will rock your tastebuds. Incredible pate' and bruschetta was on their menu at our art event. 
All I need now is an excuse to throw a party.....I would hire these folks to cater in a heart beat. Thank you CHICKPEADX, so very much for your generosity!
