HIGHLAND ART CENTER
“A Visual Exploration of What Love Is and Is Not”
The Highland Art Center is proud to host the Human Response Network Prevention Squad’s poignant Invitational Exhibit entitled Dreams & Nightmares. Professional local artists, students, and HRN volunteers have come together to visually explore the complexity of relationships; and through their creativity in a variety of mediums, will illustrate their thoughts about what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like. What are the defining characteristics? How do you quantify them? What’s most important as we seek to fully thrive in connection with others?
UMPQUA BANK- Jewelry by Tina Teuscher
Tina has been a resident of Lewiston for 22 years. She learned how to bead at a shop in Weaverville called Wild Things, which is no longer in business. She first made earrings out of fishing lures, and this is where her business name, ALure Jewelry, came from. She was encouraged by Pam Yearout and Elizabeth Watson to make other kinds of jewelry and to enter her pieces in a show. Her first venture was at Katie Quinn's Garden Party. The show was a success and she was hooked. Tina has always liked vintage jewelry, so she finds making vintage-looking pieces very rewarding, and is something that she is most proud of. Tina finds beading to be therapeutic. She loves to play around and see pieces come to life. And, she really loves it when women like her pieces as much as she does. She is looking forward to sharing her passion and meeting many new faces in February.
