Charles H. Chamberlain is the featured artist at this year's Country Fair & Art Show at Sisters Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration.

Chamberlain is an accomplished artist who believes art is a learning process and that it is always a challenge. His preferred medium is acrylics, which allow him to pursue precise detail in his work. Many of his paintings will be displayed at the Art Show.

The 22nd Annual Country Fair and Art Show will be at the Episcopal Church in Sisters on August 11-12. The Art Show begins with an artists' reception on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m., which includes refreshments and a silent auction.

The Art Show continues on Saturday along with the Country Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Art Show and sale includes participation from many outstanding regional artists, and this year there is a diverse collection of original high-quality oils, watercolors, pastels, photography, sculptures, outdoor art, jewelry and other fine crafts.

The Art Show is juried this year by well-known pastel landscape artist, JoAnn Burgess. Burgess is a partner/owner of Hood Avenue Art Gallery in Sisters, where she shows her work.

Local artist Randall Tillery has donated a framed oil painting, entitled "A Good Day on the Deschutes," for a raffle to benefit the Art Show. Tickets will be available both days of the Art Show and are $5 for one ticket, or five tickets for $20. The winning ticket will be drawn on Saturday afternoon, August 12.

All funds earned at this event are distributed to community support agencies. The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration is located at 68825 Brooks Camp Rd. at the corner of Highway 242 just west of Sisters. Admission and parking are free.
