You are here:Bend LOVES the arts!
December 31, 2015

Within the month we opened our doors to the public we have seen the love from our local newspaper and from Bend’s local radio station KPOV.

David Jasper wrote a really nice article about all the amazing shared studio spaces happening in Bend. Artists really have a great opportunity to choose where they want to create their work and what type of vibe they want their work space to hold. Bend has some pretty industrial funky spaces to spaces that are newer or remodeled. Whatever work you create you can pick the space that most ties into what your work is all about.  You can read the article here.


Linda Spring invited us to the KPOV studio for an interview about Willow Lane. It was our first time doing any kind of interview where we were recorded. Usually we rely on heaving editing of our words to make us sound like we are at ease and one with our decisions and thought processes so this was a whole new ball game! Linda was great at getting us ready and making the interview a comfortable and fun experience. Tune in to The Point on Thursdays at 9 am to hear what’s new in the art community in Bend.
