Hood Avenue Art’s theme is “The Perfect Artistic Vision: Exploring the Vision of all of the Gallery Artists.”

Sisters artist Clarke Berryman will also debut new paintings at Gary Cooley’s Collection Gallery.

The Clearwater Gallery is hosting a three-dimensional show featuring Sisters woodworker Bob Bosquet, Bend potter Molly Newbern, gourd artists Terry Davis and Chris Warren, and basket and gourd artist Leslee Burtt.

Stitchin’ Post’s featured artists are members of the Journeys Art Quilters Group. Journeys is a group of 12 textile artists that have been meeting on a regular basis for more than 10 years. They come together to support one another in their journey, sharing techniques, successes and challenges. The show, opening February 28 and running through March 24, is an eclectic group of works showcasing the diversity of style and techniques of the individual members.

Members include Judy Beaver, Helen Brisson, Shelia K. Finzer, Betty Gientke, June Jaeger, Jean Wells Keenan, Tonye Phillips, Donna Rice, Martha Sanders, Marion Shimoda, Mary Stiewig, and Jan McBrien Tetzlaff.

New to Artwalk is Bryan Lee Brown, custom jewelry designer. His studio is located in the Three Creeks Building, corner of West Hood Avenue and South Ash Street. Brown’s one-of-a-kind creations include mokume gane and lapidary, and he also does custom design, jewelry repair and restoration.

Sisters Gallery & Frame Shop will show new work by Paul Alan Bennett and Dennis Schmidling, and Jennifer Hartwig will be demonstrating scratchboard and taking signups for a new series of classes. After creating a linocut print called “Reflection,” Bennett dissected proofs of the black-and-white image and pieced them back together like a quilt. One of these, called “The Tempest,” will be on display.

Wildflower Studio will be open with wine, appetizers and art for all.

Rachel Moore’s work is on the wall at the Good Day Café from February 27 to the end of March. Her pieces are contemporary landscapes in black ink and one large acrylic painting of the Three Sisters.

Sisters Cascade features “Unchained with Love,” jewelry that contains a link of a chain from a dog set free by the nonprofit Fences for Fido. All proceeds from the sale of these items, designed and made by Sana Hayes, are donated to the organization.

Antler Arts Gallery will feature their antler lighting and chandeliers by Brian Black.

Stop by other galleries, including Grizzly Ridge Upcycle, Dyrk Godby Gallery, and the supporting businesses of the Sisters Arts Association.
