Website details: All juried artists will create original works with collected rainwater.
While the subject matter in the paintings is varied, the over all concept is
to bring to light simple ways that we can rethink the way we use water.
Rin Carroll Jackson – open call artist for Recycled Rain Show
Here is a sneak peek of where we started…
“I conceptualized and facilitated the planning and design of the piece. I worked with 22″ x 33″ 100% cotton white material, sewing corners, marker-drawing on fabric for design placement, application of hot beeswax in 3 stages and the construction of framing element and hanging configuration. Joe Jackson and I drew water from the studios 165 gallon rain barrel system for mixing dyes (3 different colors), filling wash loads
for the process of fixing dyes (had to heat up to correct temperature), and the
final stage of boiling the beeswax out of the fabric.”

Our excitement peaks as we have designed the new facility to utilize a 165 gallon rain barrel system that gathers the Pacific NW rain off the roof. We are dedicated to creating long lasting, artistically-made products that you can enjoy for many, many years. more…
It has been quite a transition, but we are now settled into the studio and functioning efficiently. We had a wonderful experience at the Bend Fall Festival October 4 & 5, 2013. 2014 events include the 11th Annual SE Area ARTWalk coming March 1st & 2nd, 2014.
