Sisters Arts Association will do a soft kickoff to its Fourth Friday Artwalks for 2022 on Friday, March 25, as the galleries of Sisters dust off the winter doldrums. Call it Fourth Friday Warm-Up, if you will. Stop by any time during the day and reintroduce yourself to the lively arts scene. This month’s Artwalk is a prelude to the official events that begin on the fourth Friday of April. The popular Quick Draw give-away of two $50 gift certificates to local galleries will start next month.

Stitchin’ Post will display “Colors, Textures, and Nature,” the fiber art of Robyn Gold. In “Home, Tweet Home” Robyn welcomes spring with singing birds, swinging bird houses, and observant owls, perched among quilted tree branches. “On the Wing” is an extravagant peacock whose teal plumage is quilted in gold threads.

If you haven’t yet discovered Hood Avenue Art’s expanded gallery, now is the chance. Many of the gallery artists still have small works for sale at affordable prices. The gallery’s newest artists include painters Glen Corbett, Barbara Cella, and Diane Farquhar Hallstrom, and sculptor Gary Cooley.

The Clearwater Gallery will be open until 4 p.m. with a beautiful selection of work by local artists, including Dan Rickards, David Mensing, Sarah B. Hansen, and more, on display.

Metals Jewelry Studio will be open all day. Stop by to see new pendants, rings, and small items in mokume gane, created by jeweler Brian Lee Brown. Other locations open during daytime hours include Wildflower Studio, Dyrk Godby Gallery, Beacham’s Clock Company, and Sisters Coffee Company.

Sisters Gallery & Frame Shop has new works by three debut acrylic artists: Brad Earl, a retired Philadelphia architect with a penchant for Indian motorcycles and antique typewriters; Lynne Myers, whose love for color dances across the board, depicting everything from owls to lakes and mountains; and Summer Derrickson, painting native birds and wildlife.

LaRita Chapman and Chris Morin of Raven Makes Gallery recently returned from an art buying trip to the Southwest, their first in more than two years. The gallery acquired unique, inspired, and beautiful works from Native American artists and jewelers.

“To our Pueblo, Hopi, Zuni, and Navajo artists behind each piece we curate, we thank you for the face-to-face visits and warm hospitality,” Chapman said. “We’ve added to our offerings: new contemporary creations that include pictorial weavings, storyteller pottery dolls, a Mongolian black marble sculpture, and fine jewelry.”

The fourth Friday in April will not only be the official kickoff event for 2022 Artwalks, but on that day, the galleries in Sisters will also be featuring auction items for My Own Two Hands, a community fundraiser auction to support art programs in Sisters Schools. Online bidding will begin that day during the Artwalk. A Community Arts Celebration will take place on April 29 at Sisters Art Works, and the Art Auction and Party will happen the following day. Details are available online at http://www.sistersfolkfestival.org/my-own-two-hands. April will be a very good month for art in Sisters.

Sisters Arts Association began in 2015 as a way to unite artists and strengthen the arts in Sisters. The organization welcomes new members including artists, supporting businesses, and the general public. Details are online at http://www.sistersartsassociation.org.
