Twelve artists of the High Desert Art League (HDAL) are exhibiting their art at Aspen Lakes from June 2 through October. An artists' reception with light appetizers will be held for the group on Sunday, June 2 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Aspen Lakes Lodge and Brand 33 Restaurant.

Featured artists in oils and acrylics are Vivian Olsen, Barbara Slater, Joren Traveller, David Kinker and Pam Jersey Bird. Olsen's paintings glow with vibrancy and light in portraits that capture the personalities of birds and other animals. Slater's intimate large-format oil paintings are highly sought-after for their dramatic compositions and intensely rich colors. Kinker, who says one of his favorite subjects is surrealism, creates acrylic paintings that are connected to nature. Traveller creates both wildlife sculptures and paintings in oil and pastel from her travel observations. Bird's abstract, nature-based paintings integrate realistic and abstract elements through a process of layering of materials.

Helen Brown, Cindy Briggs, and Jacqueline Newbold are watercolor painters who belong to the Watercolor Society of Oregon and have won awards for their paintings. Brown creates watercolor paintings, using a batik technique, that are known for their distinct compositions and dramatic perspective. Briggs' luminous watercolor paintings feature everything from the High Desert of Central Oregon to Italy, France and Greece. Newbold's stunning watercolor and pastel paintings are filled with an expressive palette of light and texture.

Four more HDAL artists create unique and varied artworks - Patricia Clark, Cameron Kaseberg, Janice Rhodes and Richard Frederick. Patricia Clark is an established master printmaker and artist teacher whose artwork draws inspiration from the natural world. Kaseberg, whose one-of-a-kind artwork is based in nature, is becoming known as the artist who has taken the solvent transfer process of image-making further than any artist working today.

Rhodes, an artist who puts a contemporary spin on her paintings, is a pastel artist who also works with the ancient art of wax-based encaustics. An award-winning photographer, Frederick is currently producing fine-art prints in black & white, color, and platinum/palladium using traditional and alternative processes.
