We in this neighborhood do more than fight for trees or go to court in order to report on the legalities. [But I am a legal/politikal junkie at heart so I find it sort of fun : - )]
Most of us do other things...and I'll put a blatant ad here for myself!
I take pictures. I sell my pictures too. And I am part of an art group that has a show at the end of October..on the 28th. Pictures I have taken of the trees and flowers along our levee will be on display at this show.
CELEBRATION OF ART
October 28th, 9 am to 3 pm
2900 SW Peaceful Lane
The magic begins as you enter our Main Exhibit Hall. Live music by well known recording artists and performers will greet your ears, and a coffee house featuring fresh treats will tantalize your palate as you listen to the musical stylings of Stephanie Schneiderman (of Dirty Martini fame), George Fendel, jazz pianist, and Justin Jude, recently named "Oregon's Best Singer/Songwriter 2007!"
Stroll from exhibit to exhibit to experience a unique show that blends the best elements of a gallery opening with an artist colony tour -- with a coffee house of a forgotten age tossed in. Celebrating their second year as a collective, ORA artists invite the public to discover their new work. Although the artists are Jewish , Judaic and secular works are available for purchase.
Members of ORA are: Rosana Berdichevsky, collage and multi-media; Lynn Dorman, photography; Leslie Elder water colors, Robin Esterkin, water color,acrylic and mixed media; Laurie Fendel, fabric construction; Diane Fredgant, silk painting; Sara Harwin, fabric construction, acrylic painting and serigraph prints; Julie Hockley, hand-cast precious metal jewelry and ritual objects; Esther Liberman, handmade bead work; Sharon Segal, acrylic and mixed media paintings and cards; Eddy Shuldman, fused glass; and Sabina Wohlfeiler, water color paintings.
You don't need to be Jewish to come look, schmooze with the artists, nosh a little, and buy art that speaks to you. Best of all, admission is free!
