Harvest Time

Call to Artists April 2018
Bountiful Harvest”
Art is food for the soul. Let’s make art about FOOD: planning, planting, growing and harvesting food, food preparation, food on a table, people cooking or eating food.
Let’s celebrate it! Please bring non-perishable food donations along with your art on drop-off day and/or to the reception.
Art Drop-Off Day: Wed. April 4th at 2 pm (We’re giving you lots of forewarning on this theme for those of you who like to have the time to create something new.)
Attached is the Call to Artist paperwork and entry form. Let me know if you cannot open it and need it opened in an email.
Also—if you have not seen the current show it is a lovely memorial grouping of Arlene Tinsley’s art work and some wonderful interpretations of “On the Road”.

Saturday, January 6, 2018


You are invited to help celebrate our friend Arlene and her art this Sunday, 
January 7th from 1-3 at SCHHC reception for the "On the Road" show, 
showcasing local artists and their interpretations of the theme. Mark 
Tierney is playing guitar during the event.
Bandon's hospital is located at the east end of 11th.

Arlene Tinsley, who passed away November 22, 2017, was involved in many art 
projects along the south coast including both plein air groups, and was one 
of Art by the Sea Gallery's founding members. Arlene had a distinct art 
style in her paintings and in the recycled bag purses and origami creations 
she made. She had a strong sense of justice and was a supporter of global 
animal (and people) rights.  She loved anything zebra, as well as elephants 
and giraffes and was always up for a road trip. : )
