The “SYNERGY: ART & LITERATURE” exhibition represents a very special art show for the Friends of the Redmond Branch Library which illustrates the connectivity in all aspects of the creative process. From painting to photography to fiber and beyond, Central Oregon artists offer their unique interpretations of the link between art and literature or art and music. A fifty word essay explaining the artist’s vision accompanies each piece of art.

“SYNERGY: ART & LITERATURE” will be held March 22 – April 25, 2014, and will coincide with the Deschutes Public Library Foundation’s “Novel Idea” programming. The Deschutes Public Library Foundation has selected Peter Heller’s The Dog Stars as the novel for 2014.

Local artist and muralist, Erik Hoogen, was selected to create a painting representative of this novel. Mr. Hoogen is a world traveler who has supported himself through his unique paintings. Erik is an acrylic painter whose works can be seen locally in Bend, Redmond and most dramatically in the murals on the Thriftway store in Terrebonne.

The public is invited to an after-hour reception in honor of the participating artists on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Attendees can view the artwork while listening to the sound of local jazz duo, JazCru. Afterwards, they can sample some of the best beer in Central Oregon provided by the city’s newest brewery, Juniper Brewing Company.

The Redmond Branch Library is located at 827 SW Deschutes Ave., Redmond, OR 97756. Library hours are Monday – Friday: 10 – 6 PM, Tuesday: 10 – 8 PM and Saturday: 10 – 5 PM.
