controlled chaos...

The day before a Camp Cactus sale is always full of chaos and color, with totes full of ceramics, glass, and all kinds of art piled high, waiting to be arranged, dusted and displayed. In a space of two days or so, the studio becomes a gallery and boutique showing the creations of our fantastic local artists.
Somehow, it all comes together with the help of family, friends and artists, who pitch in and get the job done!
Here's a sneak preview of what you'll see this weekend:
 Judee Moonbeam works with the brightest and cheeriest colors to bring you functional art that you can wear and use every day...
 Tiny terrariums by yours truly...
 Miniature desert landscapes...
 Beautifully coordinated and eminently useful softgoods by Tamara King...
…and I'll have some of my recent paintings of nests for sale as well!
Please stop by and check us out this weekend.
Your purchases help support local artists and a percentage of all sales is donated to Oregon Food Bank.
