Wow, September already!

As we roll into September we are enjoying the remaining hot, summery days. At the Gallery we are revving up for a lively fall with new artists and exhibits, exciting Gallery news, and our upcoming 20th anniversary!

In the meantime, though, we want to remind you that these will be the last few weeks of showing Hood River artist, Gayle Weisfield’s watercolor paintings. We still have some beautiful wood turned bowls by Mel Borg and exquisite segmented wood turned bowls by Tim Maben.

Russell Ford is back in the Gallery. Be sure to come by and see his colorful blown glass bowls. Keith Appleman is the newest member of our Gallery family. He creates sculptural blown glass lights and combines them with exotic wood bases—very unique.

In addition, we have work by JM Broderick, Michael Orwick, and Steven Thor Johanneson.

In October our featured artists will be Bev Jozwiak and Jacques and Mary Regat. Our gallery will be full of new paintings and sculptures. Rip will be back from Africa with tales to tell. If you want to be the first to know about Gallery happenings, follow our blog (of course!) and sign up for our email newsletter here: http://www.caswellsculptures.com/ (go to the bottom of the page).

So, enjoy the sun, but don’t be a stranger—and remember, we have air conditioning!


July gallery exhibit to benefit orphan relief and rescue

Leave a comment

Mel BorgOur exhibit this month is not only spectacular but will benefit a fantastic cause, Orphan Relief and Rescue. Our extreme wood turner, Mel Borg, has shared his passion not only for his craft, but also for this organization to whom he will be donating all his proceeds from the sale of his work in this show. Mel has always been philanthropic and devotes his time and money to several causes. Along with Mel, Rip, fellow artists in this show, Rod Cartasenga and Tim Maben, will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the organization.

The goals of Orphan Relief and Rescue are:

• To bring children in orphanages immediate relief from hunger, sickness and premature death.
• To provide sanitary living conditions through orphanage reconstruction projects.
• To create partnerships with other organizations to maintain the health and welfare of these children on a long-term, sustainable basis.
• To empower orphanage directors and older children with skills to sustain positive change, build self-sufficiency, and enable continued spiritual growth.

We hope you come in and see this awesome exhibit and consider acquiring a beautiful piece of art which will in turn help a child in need. To learn more about this great organization visit: http://www.orphanreliefandrescue.org.
