    Art in the High Desert Booth 2015 Cindy Grisdela I’m all set up and ready to go for the Art in the High Desert show in Bend, OR this weekend. The banks of the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District have been transformed into an outdoor art gallery as over 100 artists from all over the country set up their booths yesterday to display their unique creations. The show opens today and runs through Sunday August 30. Hours are 10-6 today and Saturday, and 10-4 Sunday. I’ll be in Booth 69 and I’d love to see you if you have a chance to stop by–I have some new work to share with you! Art in the High Desert is one of the top shows in the country, and definitely one of my favorites. It’s also one of  the most beautiful venues I participate in. It’s well worth a trip if you haven’t been before. There will be over 100 artists… ... read more
