Update:

A federal agency and five conservation groups have put together a reward totaling $15,500 for information on the illegal killing of an Oregon wolf in Klamath County.  The wolf, OR-33, died of gunshot wounds in late April but the case was not confirmed until October following tests on the wolf’s DNA.

It is a violation of the federal Endangered Species Act to kill a gray wolf in the western two-thirds of Oregon, along with a violation of Oregon state game laws.

The wolf’s carcass was found about 20 miles northwest of Klamath Falls in Fremont-Winema National Forest, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said.

“This is a heartbreaking loss for Oregon’s wolves,” said Amaroq Weiss, West Coast wolf advocate at the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the groups that contributed money.

“Wolf recovery in Oregon depends on wolves like OR-33 making their way west and thriving, so his death is a major setback. We hope someone will do the right thing and come forward with information.”

OR-33 was a 4-year-old male gray wolf that dispersed from northeast Oregon’s Imnaha Pack to southwest Oregon, where he became well known.  He was seen by multiple residents, and his photo was captured by a hunter’s trail camera near Emigrant Reservoir, about six miles southeast of Ashland.

“This wolf is acting like David Lee Roth,” said Greg Roberts, a media personality in Southern Oregon said at the time. “I’ve had eight people in Ashland say that they’ve seen him around their property.”

“Hurt No Living Thing”

 

Hurt no living thing;

Ladybird, nor butterfly,

Nor moth with dusty wing,

Not cricket chirping cheerily,

Nor grasshopper so light of leap,

Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,

Nor harmless worms that creep.

— Christina Rossetti

During the opening reception of SHADOWS, Gregory Bell offered an artist talk about the encaustic works depicting the wildlife found in coastal habitat of the area.

 

 

 

 

And, too, during the SHADOWS reception,  the artist was  inspired by FLYNN,   “the handsomest Kestrel around and one of the  WCNC Ambassador Birds!”    I will paint FLYNN next! — Gregory Bell 

 

At the opening reception of  SHADOWS on October 7th there was an  auction  of selected Neal Maine images.  More than $300 was raised in less than five minutes to benefit the  WCNC!!!

 

Wildlife Center of the North Coast (WCNC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Oregon corporation, that specializes in wildlife rehabilitation of resident and migratory birds, mammals and other wild creatures naturally occurring in Oregon.

Shadows quote by Penelope Culbertson.

 

Penelope Culbertson began her art studies at the Portland Art Museum as a child, in the art department at Cleveland High School, at Reed College with calligraphy master Lloyd Reynolds, at Willamette University in Salem, at the San Francisco Art Institute, and the Institute de Bellas Artes in San Miguel, Mexico.

Penelope was the co-founder of the Art Academy of Kona and the West Hawaii Arts Guild where she served on the Executive Board. Penelope worked in the Hawaii State Artist-in-School program and showed as the Artist-in-Residence at the Hyatt Regency. Her work is in the permanent collection at the Royal Waikoloan Hotel.

Since her return to Portland, Penelope has had seventeen solo exhibits of her watercolors. She showed year round at the Hawthorne Arts Gallery and annually at the Buckman Art Show where she was the founding chairman of the Children’s Art Sale. She taught children’s art classes at the Buckman Arts Magnet Elementary and for the Portland Parks Dept. in their after-school program. In 1999 she helped produce a book of children’s watercolors about the Portland Water System. She was co-founder of The Hawthorne Arts Guild and showed in all their monthly group shows.

 

 

Penelope teaches weekly classes in calligraphy and watercolors for the disabled. She experiments in watercolors, oil pastels, collage, tapestry weaving and calligraphy. She is a member of the Portland Society of Calligraphy. She exhibits her art at Fairweather  Gallery in Seaside, Oregon.

 

Fun facts: 

In Penelope Culberston’s calligraphy class at Reed College there was a fellow student, Steve Jobs (Apple computer founder).

There is a theory that the computers today would not have the font choices without the learning seed  planted by Reed College calligraphy professor Lloyd Reynolds. 

 

Penelope Culbertson, at the opening reception of SHADOWS on October 7th, in addition to offering a scribing LIVE episode, will offer an artist’s talk  about  significant quotes that have made a difference in tilting the world to a better place!!!

Lisa Wiser is a visual artist living and working in Oregon. She draws inspiration from the scenic northwest, travel adventures and reading novels to create watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media paintings. Also an avid photographer, she chronicles her visual inspirations as she records obscure landscapes, architectural details, and other intriguing painting subjects.

 

Pursuits in life drawing and plein air painting confirms that she prefers a direct association with her subjects while working from life both outdoors or in the studio.

 

 

“The foundation of my work is a keen interest in the concept of structure in both the natural and built environment. My primary interest is capturing landscape scenes that visually articulate my emotional response upon approaching the scene.”–Lisa Wiser

 

Shadows of Butte by Lisa Wiser

 

Her representational work is characterized by vivid color, great depth of space and attention to detail.

Lisa has been invited to serve in both curatorial and juror positions for various arts organizations in the area. She has taught art from pre-school through college and adult level courses and has recently retired as a substitute art teacher for her local school district to devote more time to her painting.

Aside from painting Lisa enjoys hiking, reading, gardening, skiing, and family time with her three adult children and husband, travel and fixing things. Her favorite getaways are the forests and deserts of Central Oregon and her family’s rustic retreat on Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho.

Anny Sears, fellow floral artist, spoke about the understanding of florography and how it magnified the energy of Mike Mason’s art.

 

“The aster is the flower of the month for September. In the language of  asters represent afterthought and sentimental remembrance. COLOR IT FALL has ne thinking of  the light of summer…. and starting of the light moving towards the glow of autumn.” –Anny Sears

 

“I really enjoyed speaking to all the artists and, especially to you. Thank you for all that you do for the arts. CHEERS!” –Anny

Star of Bahai by Mike Mason

This image is of a 9 point star. It is a symbol of faith. The back ground is composed of hydrangea representing: devotion, and remembrance.
Queen Anne’s lace, historically representing: haven, protection, and “I will return”.
Cosmos line the star. They represent: modesty and love of a virgin.
Rhododendron signifies romance, first love and moderation.
Tulips accent the stat points with perfect love and “happy years”.
The center of the star is a Gerbera daisy. Historically the flower represents sadness. This part is special, because the emotional heart is one that we all share. Examining ones center and letting it bloom is truly the origin of Love.
