Digital Photography and Digital Art taught in a series format for learning beginner, intermediate and advanced mobile photography skills. 

Profile:

Photography is meditation, expression and revelation. I pause to observe details in the greater world and photograph them, and I work to create the same feeling of “pause” in my photography-based art. The type of “pause” can be meditative or surprised; curious or joyful. I seek anything that stops thought for a moment, allowing the world to be perceived in a different way.

Over time, I have moved along the spectrum from literal and representational toward abstract, taking photographic elements out of context and recombining them to create an altered reality. I especially like to explore the contrast of geometric lines with organic shapes and forms. This unexpected combination speaks to two primary aspects of my personality, artist and engineer, coming together harmoniously. I create this work using an iPhone camera and apps, and enjoy the exploration of possibilities as each piece unfolds.

My artwork is conceived, created, printed and framed by my hand. I believe that presentation—bringing photographs into the tangible world—is an important part of the photographic process; one that has become rare in the era of increasing digital screens. I seek to enhance the “pause” I’ve created in the image in the final presentation, owning the artistic process from start to finish.

Classes/Workshops:

Beier teaches an artist residency for youth Grades K-5 called “Story to Pictures.” Students write their own stories, present the stories in a panel layout (what professionals call a “book dummy”), and then paint one or two full-page open spreads with watercolors on paper. Students love writing their own narratives and bringing them to life with pictures.

It’s thrilling when the kids call out “It’s art day!”—they love to be creative together and they’re proud of the art they make.

Profile:

I was born in New York City and started drawing early by the side of my artist grandmother. For 35 years I have illustrated for children—award-winning picture books, biographies and classics. I have lived abroad in England and Germany and brought the richness of those and other old-world cultures into my work. A recent work is an abridged version of Les Miserables for a South Korean publisher.

Many of the books I illustrate grow out of the authors’ personal histories and experience, and I bring that element to the work I do with children in the Art Center residency. An author’s narrative can be sparked by many things—a chance encounter, an unexpected find, a strong emotion—and then brought to life on the page with drawings. 

I have won numerous illustration awards over 30 years of illustrating children’s books. My picture book The Christmas Coat: Memories of My Sioux Childhood, written by Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve, won the Smithsonian Best Children’s Book Award and the American Indian Library Association Best Picture Book Award. It tells the story of the author’s Christmas on the Rosebud reservation when she was 12 years of age, in winter 1945.

I am an almost 20-year member of the Corvallis Children’s Writers Group, in which I share, with others, the support of members’ writing and art.

Classes/Workshops:

Deb Curtis is a fiber artist and has taught fiber arts for more than 37 years and basketry for more than 31 years. She is very interested in leading small groups wishing to learn the art of basketry. 

Profile:

Deb Curtis feels that baskets and basketry is a tradition that is changing. She designs and produces contemporary baskets using traditional basketry materials. By linking basket materials with knitting, tapestry weaving, or surface design she creates “new” baskets. Through the blending of colors and textures she changes the character of the basket from only a functional vessel to a container that expresses a concept.

Deb has been using various fiber arts in creative methods for more than 50 years. Fiber arts she has also taught: embroidery, knitting, crocheting. Deb says “I love working with my hands and find great satisfaction in actualizing ideas, whether my own or helping someone else to realize theirs.”

Deb has been been juried into and has won awards in local, regional and national shows, such as “Around Oregon Annual”, National Basketry Organization’s “All Things Considered” and “Beaver Tales”.  

The Arts Center Exhibitions:

  • Around Oregon Annual, 2015, 2010
  • Corrine Woodman Gallery | 2-person Show, 2012
