"Moonlight on the Vine" Unveiled at Seven Feathers Casino Convention Center: 3rd Annual Southern Oregon Festival of Arts

 This, my most recent wine series painting, is unlike any other I have created so far.  My photography cannot do justice to the textures of the designs carved in molding paste, or the shimmering of metallic gold pigment and marble-like background textures.  This one must be seen in person to appreciate its elegant intricacies.  As soon as I finish publishing this post, I’ll be adding the finishing touches to this contemporary painting.  I’m proud to show it as part of my lineup of “wine pairings” during the 3rd Annual Southern Oregon Festival of Arts.

Seven Feathers Casino Resort Convention Center will host the 3rd annual Southern Oregon Festival of Arts on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Canyonville, OR, just off I-5.  Enjoy browsing fine art and other creations by Oregon artists and artisans.  The variety ranges from one of a kind jewelry makers, pottery artisans, wood working and photography.  Artists will show abstract, floral, western and wine-themed works in oil, watercolor and acrylics.  This is the ideal place to browse for gifts or for yourself.  Enjoy live music by four local groups as you browse this select group of artisans’ distinctive offerings.

In addition to the festival, nearby in the same building are two other events.  The Jefferson State Antique Bottle and Collector Show and Sale and Stampfest 2012 for stamp collectors are both celebrating their 10th year at Seven Feathers. If you attend any of these events, please stop by my space at the Art Festival and introduce yourself.
