Last call to print on the wallsThis may be your last chance to print on the walls and not get in trouble. Bend Art Center's recent show, "Zamenhof's Trials: Prints and Prinstillations," by Sukha Worob, soon comes to a close. Worob created a series of rollers in to which he carved designs and images, used to create large-scale prints on paper. During the show, visitors pick up the rollers and add to the piece on display.

Instagram watchLocal artist Abney Wallace recently returned from a two-week long residency at Playa in Summer Lake, Ore. The residency was part of the growing partnership between Bend Art Center and Playa, which awards one residency per year to an A6 studio member. Wallace, currently an MFA candidate at Pacific Northwest College of Art, explored landscape and form during his stay, collecting sound recordings and even making a paint brush from his beard. You can follow him on Instagram @awolawall to see his work in progress, including the various steps that take him from drawing to carving to printing. A regular at the Life Drawing sessions on Tuesday nights at The Workhouse, Wallace's work often involves highlights from his sessions, showcasing the human body in its perfect humility and beauty.
