First Friday in Bend with SageBrushers

We are thrilled to be displaying the work of SageBrushers for March’s First Friday event in Bend. Founded in 1952 by five local artists, SageBrushers has grown to 112 members. The building located at 117 SW Roosevelt was purchased in 1959 from Deschutes County for $1. By 1968, the membership had grown and so had the building.
The original part of the building contains the ample gallery and the library of over 100 art books on various topics. The studio hosts daily painting groups and painting classes, including watercolor, intuitive painting, color theory, abstraction and painting basics are taught weekly. On the second Friday of every month, a lecture is given on an art topic by a member of the community and the gallery also hosts shows by the members and outside groups such as Plein Air Painters of Oregon. The works are very reasonably priced and beautifully executed.
Please join us from 5-8PM at our Downtown Bend location (821 NW Wall Street) for art, wine and appetizers!
