Annual A6 Artist Member Exhibit

On Display: Dec 1-31, 2017
Opening Reception: Fri, Dec 1, 5-9 pm

Snoopy (from the popular Peanuts cartoon strip) began every novel with the dramatic opening line, “It was a dark and stormy night…”.  A6 Artist Members were challenged to use this phrase as an art prompt, creating abstract and representational works full of foreboding and narrative possibility.

The exhibit opens December 1 on First Friday with a reception from 5-9 pm. This interactive exhibit invites gallery visitors to start a story using Snoopy’s opening line and work in the exhibit for inspiration. Honoring the writing process of the beloved beagle, visitors can use A6’s vintage typewriters to type their narratives.

This annual juried exhibit highlights local artists who are members of the A6 Print Studio, a printmaking and book arts studio housed within Bend Art Center. This year’s exhibit includes work by

Ana Aguirre, Paul Alan Bennett, Paula Bullwinkel, Pat Clark, John Grey, Jean Harkin, Barbara Hudin, Gin Laughery, Helen Loeffler, Sue Papanic, Jane Quale, Adell Shetterly, Jeanette Small, Gayle Stone, Robin Thomas, Julie Winter, and Abney Wallace. Erika Anderson, a board member of Bend Art Center and manager of Peterson Roth Gallery, served as juror. Anderson selected Jane Quale’s “Ice Storm” as Best in Show.

Also on display in December, Featured A6 Member Beale Jones exhibits recent monotype prints.

Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri 10-7 pm, Sat 10-6 pm, Sun Noon-5 pm. Exhibit admission is free.
