A message from Jeff Burke, (Hipbone Studio) Portland, OR

Greetings Everyone,

It has been quite awhile since I've sent an update but now it is the advent of a new season and there are some things I want to make sure you are aware of.
I will mention them without all of the particulars, for those details and more thorough descriptions, please go to our newly-designed website (Thank you, Daniel Gill!),

Model Marathon#52 9 models-9 hours
Sunday, April 10th
'Nuff said, check it out!

Field Guide to the Figure Intensive Workshops
Begin Saturday, May 21st
The Portrait, Hands and Feet series keeps filling to overflowing so I am compelled to keep offering it. It will begin again on Saturday, May 21st.
For those who would like to explore other aspects of the Human Figure I will be offering special Sunday afternoon workshops on The Front and Back of the Torso, June 26th and July 24th, 1-5pm.

Pastel Class with Daniel Gill
Begins Sunday, March 13th
Daniel will be offering Sunday afternoon workshops beginning March 13th (I know its kind of late) but they will continue on March 27th and then the second Sunday each month throughout the summer minus the Marathon Sunday, April 10th.

Drop-in Drawing Sessions
and Long-Term Pose
Our regular schedule of drop-in sessions will continue uninterrupted throughout the Summer except possibly August 10th, depending on if I decide to finally take a short vacation. The Saturday morning sessions have been very popular lately but Wednesday afternoons and evenings have been moderate in their attendance.
The Long-term pose will be offered on three Thursdays each month throughout the summer. Check the
website for specific dates.

Performances and Special Events
Hipbone continues as an increasingly popular venue for all sorts of performance-related arts, be it theater, dance, music or multi-media. Also, all sorts of seminars, workshops, private parties, etc., not specifically related to the visual arts, have chosen Hipbone as their venue. See "Rent Hipbone" on our website and the photos of Hipbone's set-up as a theater to get an idea of it's versatility.

Hipbone's on Facebook
For those of you who like to communicate this way there is The Wall for posting drawings and comments. Please be respectful of others in what you decide to post.

Thank you for your attention and your continued patronage!

(Click image to Enlarge)

(A message from Kevin Weaver):

We have another wonderful show this month featuring the latest works by Ridgefield artist Oleg Ulitskiy. In 2010 Oleg returned to his hometown of Odessa Ukraine for several weeks to paint the beautiful port city and its incredible architecture. Oleg's latest collection of oil paintings includes many pieces from his Odessa trip and also paintings of his favorite local subjects including several barns, rivers, vineyards and fields from around the Northwest. The show runs March 4th - 26th. The opening reception is on First Friday March 4th from 5 to 9. Come down and enjoy live music, light complimentary refreshments, chat with Oleg and see some great art!

To preview the show online please visit our website and click on "Upcoming Events", then click on
"Visit the Exhibition".

This month the gallery celebrates our 5 year anniversary. Thanks to all of
you who have visited the gallery over the last 5 years, we greatly
appreciate your patronage and look forward to many more years to come!

Best regards,
