Spring Arts & Style | Spring Arts & Style | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Spring Arts & Style

comment
It’s hard to find much of anything in today’s mass production world that isn’t outsourced to overseas factories and pumped out for pennies on the dollar. Whether it’s clothing or couches, good old-fashioned craftsmanship is hard to find. With that in mind, we set out to create this year’s spring arts and style issue with an eye toward replacing the artless junk in your life with items that have both artistic and industrial integrity. Another way to say that is sh*t that doesn’t suck. To do that, we pulled in local experts in the fields of fashion, interior design and fine art. Keeping with the theme, we’ve got profiles of local artisans, including a furniture maker, a guitar luthier and a local blacksmith—Central Oregonians who are proving that, Chinese sweatshops be damned, craftsmanship is still alive right here in your hometown. Look at little further and you’ll find a profile of local horseshoer Walt Freund, whose mobile ferrier business is bustling. It’s all right here in the Spring Arts and Style Issue.
