  • New Art 2.0 | Wendy Red Star

    The (HUD), 2010
    Lithograph, edition 9/12
    30 x 22 ⅜ inches
    $835

    The main motive behind my work is humor and using humor as a tool to get to bigger underlying issues. I’m originally from Montana, and I grew up on the Crow Indian reservation in south-central Montana. I’m half Crow Indian and half Irish. I grew up immersed in Crow culture but with a dual perspective. Most of my art explores this experience from two worlds and some of the issues that occur within that territory.

    Wendy Red Star (Crow, born 1981) is an installation artist who received her bachelor of fine arts degree from Montana State University and her master of fine arts degree from the University of California at Los Angeles, both in sculpture. In her work, Wendy, who is a 2009 Eiteljorg Fellow, combines her own ethnic and gender identities with conventional and stereotypical ways of representing them. She resides in Portland, Oregon.

    Storm Tharp is a lifelong Oregon resident currently living and working in Portland. He has generated international attention for his work, with exhibitions and gallery representation in New York and Geneva, Switzerland. Several of Tharp’s paintings were also included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial.

    A practitioner of several media—including ink and gouache painting, sculpture installation, and clothing design—Tharp often explores themes of character and identity. Some of his acclaimed portraits, frequently a stylistic mixture of blotted ink and sharply defined contours, exhibit a delicate balance of realistic and abstract expression.

LaPena has lectured widely on Native American traditional and cultural issues, emphasizing California traditions, and he is a professor emeritus at California State University, Sacramento.

  • ALL IN THE FAMILY | Katie and Gavin's beautiful Eiteljorg wedding

    by Sarah Bean, Eiteljorg Director of rental, catering and cafe | Dec 17, 2014

    With 15 years of event planning experience, I rarely have a “first” anymore but I can honestly say that I have never had a wedding vendor list made up entirely of family.
    I first met Katie and her mom in January and immediately connected with Katie’s witty sense of humor and her mom’s gentle, loving, personality. Mrs. Trotta had a lot on her plate as she had not one, but two daughters that were getting married in 2014. I made it my mission to convince them that every detail would be treated with the highest priority and that I would do my very best to fulfill all of Katie’s wishes.

    A few months before the October wedding I had the pleasure of meeting and working with their planner and dear family friend, Katie Soffietti. With two type A planners involved I knew we had all of our bases covered.

    Katie and Gavin knew from the get-go that they wanted a ceremony indoors and in doing so made orchestrating the lighting, staging, and sound a piece of cake. This is where her brother Mike came in. He and his team from Stage Tech Inc. did a phenomenal job of lighting the ballroom, ceremony, and outdoor gardens. Katie’s sister,

    Anne Marie Carson, www.annemariecarson.com was amazing at capturing all the special moments and details of the day.  DJ Ryan Hickey, Katie’s cousin, orchestrated the evenings’ activities while keeping the guests on their feet all night long.

    It seemed that everything was personalized and had been touched in some way by family.

    My favorite piece was the altar table. Katie’s family cut a tree down on their property and fashioned it into a table that would be used for the alter during the ceremony.

    It was gorgeous  -- and now Katie and Gavin have a piece of furniture in their home they can cherish and pass on to future generations. It truly was a pleasure getting to work with such a fun and loving family.
