Updates from Central Oregon SAQA Parlor Group
The Central Oregon Parlor Group met on Feb. 1 at Atelier 6000 in Bend which is a printing studio/gallery/workshop. Judy Hoiness, artist/educator talked with us about composition focusing on balance.....balance of line, shape, value, color, texture, direction....it was a wonderful meeting and her experience as an educator at Central Oregon Community College really came through. She then critiqued several of our pieces and we learned about new ways to look at our work.
Then two of our members Donna Rice and Barbara Bogges shared the calligraphy printing technique and talked about coming to A6000 in groups to print. There was a lot of interest in pursuing this. On March 15 we will have a work day at the Stitchin’ Post in Sisters and bring a potluck dish. We would like to have pieces mocked up and work on critiquing practicing what Judy laid out for us.
We are in the process of gathering up quilts to be shown at Expo this fall “A Central Oregon showing of SAQA quilt member quilts”.
