COZY CRANE-IUMS

From the artist: My art celebrates birds and the birders who love them!  I first saw sandhill cranes when I visited the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge with my family.  To me, the cranes represent knowing grace, timelessness….and squawking silliness. I designed my hats with the colorways of the birds in mind and offer several styles. The signature style for the sandhill Cozy Crane-iums is a tall hat inspired by the big birds.  I try to capture qualities of the cranes within the possibilities of my medium.  Any birder will have a warm head as they venture into the field to spot their lifetime quarry.  The hats will blend nicely in the field.

JUST-A-DOODLE

From the artist: Art and designs (especially lines) have always fascinated me. Doodling is a way to express my inner being as well as providing a release from the daily rat race. Just-A-Doodle came about purely by accident when one day a friend saw something I had drawn in a notebook and asked me what it was. Telling her it was “just a doodle”, she proceeded to tell me it was art that could be developed and shared with others. In fact, she said the name of my style was called “Zendoodle and Zentangle”. After much encouragement and trial and error, my pen and ink art has become a way to relate to other people and hopefully make them happy in some small way. Please enjoy.

U.S. FWS, MALHEUR NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was established on August 18, 1908, by President Theodore Roosevelt as the Lake Malheur Reservation. Roosevelt set aside unclaimed government lands encompassed by Malheur, Mud and Harney Lakes “as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds.” People and wildlife have been drawn to the resources of this oasis of wetlands in the high desert of Oregon for thousands of years. With over 320 bird species, Malheur is a mecca for birdwatchers.

MARY BUTLER FINE ART

About the artist:  Two-track dusty roads, open vistas and Idaho’s rugged beauty inspire Mary’s art. Her childhood on a Southern Idaho Ranch provided views and values that jump-started her artistic vision at an early age. When a very young child, she drew on walls with chalk, and by the 4th grade her future passion became clear when she stated “I am an artist!” She then spent forty years as a Registered Nurse and raising a family and now she is finally pursuing her art seriously. She paints plein air, from memory and photographs in her studio in Boise, where she continues to be inspired by the varied Northwest landscapes. Her painting style is western expressionism with attention to light and movement in both watercolor and oils.

LARRY MCFERRIN PHOTOGRAPHY

About the artist: Larry’s love of nature and the desire to explore, see new things and new behaviors was instilled as a young child. That desire is still strong and continues to grow even though age marches on. Larry’s enthusiasm carried over to his wife, Terrie, who now tags along as Larry’s partner taking pictures by his side. This desire translates into another passion, to make pleasing images that bring joy, inspiration, and hopefully let others see through our images part of our great natural world they might not otherwise see. Larry believes that Nature is at it’s Best when taking photographs of untamed, wild, un-baited critters. Most of our wildlife images are in their natural habitat (unless otherwise noted).  To find a subject in great light, to produce a pleasing image, to us is what photography is all about, but the truth is even without the camera in hand we would still be out there observing all the great things in nature.

BURNT RENDERINGS

About the artist: Wildlife Pyrography - The Art of Drawing with Fire. For centuries, gourds have been used to make vessels, utensils, jewelry and crafts. The artist, Michele O'Malley, uses the organic shapes, textures and patterns of each gourd as a canvas for her unique wildlife art. Each animal is hand-drawn, hand-burned and color may be added using ink dyes creating a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of Art.

CAREY JOSEPH LINE, WATERCOLOR & WIRE

From the artist: Having grown up on a ranch in Central Oregon, many hours were spent observing and sketching horses and riders. Currently living on a farm in Teton Valley, I am constantly inspired by our domestic family of horses, dogs, cats and chickens, as well as the incredible wildlife that surrounds me. My studies through multiple art classes in high school and university widened my range to include watercolor and eventually oil painting.  Although capturing horses and figures through line was my first passion, my work has expanded to multiple mediums and species. Things found and seen in my surroundings continue to spark my imagination and my efforts to capture their essence.

DENISE BRUCHMAN PHOTOGRAPHY

From the artist: I transfer my original fine art photographs onto Travertine stone tiles by hand to create coasters, trivets, spoon rests, and magnets. These are usable pieces of art. They're sealed against moisture so they'll take heat, cold, and wet. I've even had folks add these to their tile backsplashes. I'll have a wide variety of photos and sizes available in my booth. They make great gifts!

NATURAL REFLECTIONS

From the artist: With these images I hope to highlight the beauty and significance of the natural world—emphasizing not only the physical dependence we have on this world, but also the deep psychological attachment we have to the beauty of natural things—the birds, flowers, and landscapes that have always inspired my photography.

WILDWOOD CRAFTS

From the artist: I am now entering my 25th year as artist and business owner of Wildwood Crafts.  I use several types of wood to create my items, including walnut, oak, alder, cedar, and mahogany.  I enjoy designing and creating various plaques, ornaments, and functional items such as mirrors and key racks.

HOELSCHER FINE ART

About the artist: Paul Hoelscher is a full-time artist and art instructor, painting from home and teaching through his community art center and private consultation. Paul almost always carries a sketchbook to make notes and detailed drawings of fleeting moments with the landscape, people and animals. His finished paintings and drawings are intended to be quiet reminders for everyone of how really wonderful life is when we take a moment to notice.
