Annual Student Art Show - 2/2018

Starting: January 5th

On First Friday in January, we welcome art students from around the county in our Annual Student Art Show. This year we will be featuring the artwork of Baker County High School students and students of Crossroads art classes. This exhibition showcases the talent of local students and illustrates the many ways students can interpret an assignment through their artwork, expressing their individual creativity. Each year we find the student show is very popular with the public. Baker High School art instructors Kristen Anderson and Jill Nelson will be showing the work which their students created this fall. The students have created about 30 - 40 2D pieces including linoleum prints and drawings and around 20 3D pieces including ceramic, sculpture, jewelry and much more. We may also be showing the artwork created by students of all ages, who have taken classes and workshops at Crossroads. You will likely see paintings, drawings, ceramics, watercolor, and clock sculptures from the students who have taken classes taught by Mo Quinn, Steve Wadner, Becky Litke, Paul Hoelscher, Terri Axness, Amy VanGaasbeck, among others. We hope the artwork will inspire new students to take classes and live a more creative life. Opening reception from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm Informal talk begins at 5:30 pm Light refreshments provided by Friends of Crossroads This exhibition is on display through Saturday, January 27th This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Garchar & Colton CPA's and Chaves Consulting

Textures in Clay

Textures in Clay

October 6th 2017

In October, we will be featuring the Artist Linda Gray McKean, clay artist from Union, Oregon. Linda's fascination with the process of transformation from "mud to stone" began in 1973, and she continues to be fascinated by the mysterious somewhat unpredictable process. Linda's favorite subject matter is turtles! She states "as much as the turtle's shells are their place of refuge and rest, clay has become mine. Their shells have been my "easels" for exploration of textural patterns and color." The claywork Linda will be exhibiting "is a reflection of pattern recognition" that her minds eye has guided her to explore in clay. October First Friday Art Walk will be the 6th of October from 5:30pm - 8:00pm. Please join us for live music by Hannah Violette, and refreshments. Crossroads Carnegie Art Center's October exhibit is graciously supported by Britt Sand & Gravel.
