AODC artists continue to "refresh" the gallery monthly with new art. Providing the community with workshops to teach various art techniques and receptions to showcase the art are typical of our monthly offerings. We welcome feedback from the community to help us plan workshops. What would you like to learn? Past workshops have included jewelry, stained glass, mask making, collage and rose-pruning.Directly behind the gallery is a historic rose garden that is maintained by the artists. We have been fortunate to have the Divide Garden Club help with rose-pruning, and hope to continue with that collaboration. They have also been generous in awarding the gallery many years of grants to help with this maintenance.AODC gallery is pleased to provide a space for local student art, under the leadership of Susan Sasano, a local volunteer. She reaches out to our local schools and will switch out the artwork regularly.
2023 Terry Green Memorial Art Scholarship
The Divide Friends of the Arts and Historical Society (DFAHS) representing Art On the Divide Gallery (AODC) is pleased to announce Andee Bradley as the recipient of the $1,000 Terry Green Memorial ART Scholarship for the year of 2023.
A committee from AODC Gallery unanimously selected Andee for her outstanding work and continuing interest in the arts as she plans to attend the University of Oregon where she was also awarded a scholarship. Victor Larson, resident AODC artist and committee member presented Andee with her award at Golden Sierra’s Awards night. She will major in Studio Arts with a focus on oil painting and print making.
A dedicated art student, Andee has participated as a visual arts intensive student at the California State Summer for the Arts. This was a month long course that she has attended the prior two summers.
Andee best described her passion when she stated “I still paint like it’s the oxygen I need to breath because maybe it is, and maybe I’d die without oil paint caked in the crevices of my palms and mineral spirits painting my olfactory senses red.”
We all wish Andee the best as she continues her studies at University of Oregon. Congratulations.The Divide Friends of the Arts and Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery are continuing the tradition of offering a scholarship to Divide graduating seniors that plan to continue their arts education at the college or university level
Funds for the ART scholarships are made available through membership to DFAHS and other generous contributions. New and continuing memberships for 2023 will benefit students this year.
With increased participation, more scholarship dollars will be made available in the future. For information on DFAHS Membership and AODC Gallery, please use the donation button below. Thank you for supporting our students and the arts.
