Christmas is perhaps the most widely embraced, lovingly anticipated and celebrated annual event for many families in Oregon. In the grand tradition of holiday merriment, the Art’Clectic Local Artisans Group has created a “Pop-Up” event with 12 local artisans, offering an “Authentically Oregon” mix of fine artisan made items including Fine Art, Hand woven Textiles, Quilts, Furniture, and more. There will be a special table with low cost items where children can shop for presents for Mom & Dad (and stay within a small budget). The group will also offer stylish gift wrapping to personalize presents with simple, beautiful papers and ribbon.

The Art’Clectic Artisans Market will be held during the Victorian Christmas Weekends:

When:  December 5-7th, December 12-14th, December 19-21st.
Time:  Fridays from 4-8pm, Saturday & Sundays from 10-6pm.

The Art’Clectic Artisans Group started as a social gathering, meeting once a month at the home of one of the artists.  The ongoing meetings are an opportunity to freely discuss changes in the artist community and art market place, upcoming art events, and personal news about family and friends. Artisans include:

Steve Bennett started painting and drawing when he was in kindergarten. He quit art that same year. He did enjoy art via the view finder of his camera.After many years of photography, Sue encouraged him to join her in painting. He took the chance. Steve enjoys drawing and painting outdoors subject matter the best. He mostly paints with pastels and watercolor. “It is fun to have a new area of life unfold for me each day.” When Steve is not painting, Sue and Steve have an art seminar business that takes them and other artists to many beautiful places in the world to paint, and photograph.

“Art has kept me enthralled for 40 years. I studied for 10 years in college classes and national workshops. Drawing led to basic design, which led to oil painting, which led to printmaking, which led to watercolor, and back to oil. Along the way I taught classes and organized workshops across the U.S. and Europe for 25 years; art opened up the world for me. My paintings are portrayed with simplicity of shape and rich color. I get very involved with the medium, and paint to express beauty, mood and heart—to take the viewer to a place of refreshment. I am emotionally caught up from start to finish and like it best when I am slightly surprised by the end result.” ~ Sue Bennett
