It is ART that makes life, makes interest, makes importance,
and I know of no substitute for the FORCE and BEAUTY of its process.

Wy’east Artisans Guild will Present


On January 9th in the Lobby of Sandy Actors Theatre

Wy’East Artisans Guild will present Dreams, a special themed art show, on January 9 in the lobby of Sandy Actors Theatre, in conjunction with SAT’s production of Making God Laugh.

Dreams can be imaginative and abstract, or as realistic as a photograph. Guild artists explore their dreams through their chosen medium and in their own style.

The theme of Wy’East Artisans Guild’s show, which will be on display in the theater lobby throughout the run of the show, illustrates the message of Making God Laugh: Life does not always turn out the way we plan. Still, it’s important to have plans and dreams, and sometimes things turn out better than we hoped.

The art show opens on January 9, with a reception and descriptions by each artist of the vision they had in creating their work. The doors open at 6:45 pm, and the artists will speak at 7pm. After the reception, guests are invited to see the play Making God Laugh for a special price of ten dollars.

Sandy Actors Theatre is located behind Ace Hardware at
39181 Pioneer Blvd.
Sandy , OR 97055

Roger Cooke Mural Restoration

By Becky Hawley


We finished the Peaceful Vistas mural on the side of Ace Hardware! The mural was almost lost, but now has an entirely new coat of paint. The only part not repainted, was Roger Cooke’s signature.

Pam Smithsted and I are both Sandy Arts Commissioners and are the lead artists. Micaiah Meyer, Vern Groff and Marcia Morrow, who is also a Sandy Arts Commissioner, participated in the restoration. We had a total of over 281 hours of prep and painting…a big job, but we enjoyed it.

A big thank you to all who participated!
