Second Street Gallery in Old Town Bandon is showcasing local
artists through its “Gift of Art” Christmas program
which runs weekends until Christmas. The program allows
patrons to learn about various art forms and watch as it is
being created utilizing a wide variety of media.
On Saturday, December 10th & Sunday, December 11th, Jan
Payne will be creating stained glass work which emanates
“a feeling of life” in each piece. To this end, Jan
seeks to transform various colors and textures of glass into
living expressions. “I search for the perfect piece of
glass to maximize the realism of each work” exclaims
Payne. Jan prefers to work using the lead came process but
often chooses to use copper foil to achieve more intricate
detail needed for certain pieces.
Joining Jan will be local wood carver Robert Gates. Coming
from a background of landscape design, Gates describes his
carvings as “realistic and impressionistic, combined in a
freestyle approach to wood carving”. His favorite subjects
are the shore birds that dot our beautiful coastline. Robert
hopes that his pieces, combining shape, grain, texture and
color will speak to you and add a new dimension to your home
or office environment.
Second Street Gallery is located in the heart Old Town
Bandon and is open from 10AM to 5PM daily. For additional
