At the urging and support of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty broker Robyn Tuttle and Lorna Nolte, both SRWC members and local realtors, the Power of 100 Program applied for a Charitable Gift from the Central Oregon Association of Realtors (COAR).
Members of COAR are committed to community involvement and nominate nonprofits for consideration. In 2018, COAR donated over $100,000 to non-profits and events in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook Counties.
Just before the Welcome Event, the SRWC was notified that ten women who donated to Power of 100 would have their $100 donations matched with a COAR Charitable Gift. The gift along with our Power of 100 donations brings us within reach of funding the KIDS Center Project THRIVE—$8,600 of our $10,000 goal.
The KIDS Center Project THRIVE, gives children the opportunity to tell their story when a loved one abuses or neglects them in a child friendly environment. It insures that children in south Deschutes County receive the services they need to be safe and recover.
Please Join in the First Friday October 4th at our Downtown Bend Showroom (821 NW Wall St., Bend OR) from 5-8 PM to enjoy the artwork of Dee McBrien-Lee.
This event is sponsored by Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty and by hosted Julie More and Jared Chase.
Artist Bio “Painting is something I have done my entire life. It is Passion, Meditation, and Therapy. To create gives me an outlet for thoughts that keep me up at night or ideas and sights that bring me pleasure. A particular piece may be joyful or full of purpose, depending on the place I inhabit when the work is born. From the very beginning I love to use many layers of acrylic and mixed media to build a deep and interesting piece. Along the way I may add found objects or add textures to bring a richness into the work.”
Dee McBrien-Lee has been painting for as long as she can remember. She is best known for her abstracts and bird paintings which she creates with bold color and lots of texture, often mixing a variety of media for a unique look. Dee studied art at SUNY New Paltz in the 70’s and after graduation took a long hiatus from art. In the mid 2000’s she picked up where she had left off and shortly after began to study abstract painting, gradually moving away from the traditional landscape and western style of her past .
A favorite quote of McBrien-Lee, “I don’t start with a color order, but find the colors as I go” by Helen Frankenthaler is a mantra she lives by. While sometimes an abstract is just an abstract, this artist also explores subjects including current events or issues that we face on a daily basis. Dee has always loved getting fully immersed in her medium and paints with intention as well as just applying color to canvas and letting the mood and the piece take her where it may. Preferring bold color and line combined with many layers to create the finished pieces she seeks to create a mood or draw a reaction with her work and strives to create a dialog amongst her viewers. She loves to experiment with textures and while acrylic is her preferred medium, she works with just about everything in an exploratory and experimental way. The list of artists that have influenced her work is long but a sampling includes Klee, Diebenkorn, Klimt and Matisse.
McBrien-Lee was a founding Partner and former owner/artist at the Red Chair Gallery from 2010 through 2018. She has been juried in to various regional and local shows and her work can be found in private collections from coast to coast and in Europe. McBrien-Lee is currently represented by the Earthworks Gallery in Yachats, Oregon and the TClifton Gallery in Memphis, TN. As of May 1, 2019 McBrien-Lee’s work can be found at Tumalo Art Company in the Old Mill District of Bend, OR where she is a Member Artist.
