Even a last-minute venue change because of the Agness fire couldn’t deter eight Curry Arts artists from enjoying Rene Eisenbart’s return marbling event. The rain held off long enough for work to dry and Dianna Brown’s clubhouse was a perfect substitute location for producing all kinds of creative works. Rene’s fabulous marbling technique was applied to paintings, scarves, and even to a pair of Pat Renner’s Krocs!
Curry Arts member Pat Renner is pleased to announce that she has had several paintings accepted in two regional watercolor shows.
She has three paintings hanging in the CAM Biennial show “An Exhibition of Recent Works by Oregon Artists” at the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay, Oregon. The show runs from October 19 – December 8, 2018, with the opening night reception Friday October 19, 2018, 5pm-7pm.
The three works accepted into the CAM exhibition, shown below, are:
The Furies–Through the Door, The Furies–The Gymnast, and The Furies–Forlorn Fairy.
In addition, Pat’s painting “Girl in a Tree” has been juried into the Watercolor Society of Oregon, Fall 2018 watercolor show.
Way to go Pat!

The 11th annual Gold Beach Brew & Art Festival, previously scheduled for Sept. 8, has been cancelled.
Due to the Klondike and Taylor Creek fires, the US Forest Service will be taking over the Curry County Fairgrounds as their incident command post through the date the Brew Fest was scheduled.
The cancellation of this event presents a sizeable financial loss for the event’s two sponsors, Curry Arts and Soroptimist International of Gold Beach. A substantial amount of money has been already been expended preparing for the festival. Festival organizers estimate the loss will be several thousand dollars.
The co-sponsors are appealing to festival vendors and artists to consider donating their vendor fee to help reduce the financial hit. Another alternative is to apply this year’s vendor fee as a credit toward next year’s festival fee.
Vendors and artists can find updated information at http://goldbeachbrewfest.org/.
Thank you for your understanding, and thank you to our Firefighters!
See you next year!
