We are so very excited to introduce February's featured artists, the SageBrushers Art Society, a cooperative effort formed to increase knowledge of skills and principles of the fine arts for the community of Central Oregon. Founded in 1952 by five women, the group has now grown to over 100 members. They provide classes to artists of varying skill levels, as well as a space to create in, a community to support one another and to have work critiqued by peers.

"I love to work on large canvases, add abstract imaging with realistic, and use both visual and tactile textures. I achieve the textures in many instances through multimedia using acrylics and my own hand dyed papers, Japanese rice paper, and found papers. Wanting to tackle other mediums, I have also been painting in watercolors for several years," Hazel Reeves.

"My hope is that whatever I create will evoke a response from the person viewing it. Sometimes it will bring back a memory, sometimes it will cause someone to pause and think about what the artist is trying to say. Painting and creating gives me the opportunity to express my thoughts and feelings," Sue Lever, President of the SageBrushers Art Society.
