Art in the park brings creative variety
Last Saturday and Sunday Creekside Park was filled with white tents and talented artists displaying their handcrafted goods at Art in the Park. The showcase of arts and crafts spread across the park grass, drawing in scores of folks to enjoy more than 85 vendor booths. The annual event, in its 16th year, was the perfect added attraction for visitors to enjoy during rodeo weekend in Sisters.

Folks strolled through an eclectic variety of craftmanship from metal art and vintage buttons to handmade earrings from recycled bullet casings.

Watercolors reflect Hayden's colorful life
One morning last week, every computer in the Sisters Library was in use. Patrons busily but quietly went about their tasks - job-hunting, researching history, or simply checking their email or Facebook. They may not have really noticed the beautiful watercolor paintings hanging right above each workstation, but the rich colors and soft textures lent an atmosphere of calm productivity to their tasks. The Friends of Sisters Library Art Committee covers the library walls with color each month.

Len Babb's art recalls the past in the West
There was a time, when Len Babb finished a painting, he'd give it to a friend, or maybe trade it, but mostly he'd toss it into a corner and then move on to the next one. But that was before he realized that, not only was he creating a legacy of art from Western history, he was crafting iconic images for future generations.

Len spent his life as a buckaroo. He wasn't out fixing fences or baling hay. He rode, and he rode hard. And when he was done, he painted, and did a little sculpting as well.
