    Currently living in Portland, Eva Lake works and shows both paintings and photomontages. Her oil paintings exhibit dynamic movement of light and color that when displayed in sequence can create something of an optical event.

    Lake’s lifelong artistic endeavors have involved music, fashion, and extensive travels throughout both Europe and the United States. After studying art history at the University of Oregon, Lake spent time singing in London’s punk scene.

    Joe Feddersen was born in Omak, Washington, on the edge of the Colville Indian Reservation. In his twenty-year career, he has worked in painting, three-dimensional constructions like basketry and glass sculpture, photography, and computer-generated imagery. He is best known, however, as a virtuoso printmaker. Much of his work is influenced by geometric designs derived from traditional Plateau Indian artistry, which itself is inspired by Northwest landscapes, flora, and fauna. In 2001, Feddersen was awarded an Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art.

He began working full-time as an artist in 1983, creating work in several media that reflects, among other things, his Native background—including several representations of the colorful Prairie Chicken Dance— and his rodeo experience as a champion bull rider. He lived and worked near Wellpinit, Washington, on the Spokane Indian Reservation.

  • Five Things You Didn’t Know About Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure

    by Tamara Winfrey Harris, Eiteljorg vice president of communications and marketing | Nov 24, 2014
    Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure, presented by Indiana Rail Road, has made its return for the holiday season at the Eiteljorg Museum. By now, you’ve probably made this exhibit a winter tradition. You know, even if you’ve visited our locomotive wonderland more than once, there are still plenty of new things to discover in the hand-crafted, intricate layout. Don’t believe us? Here are five things we’ll bet you didn’t know about our popular holiday exhibit.
    jingle rails - eiteljorg small
    1. One of the first replicas guests see upon entering Jingle Rails is the Eiteljorg Museum. The real-life museum exterior consists of nearly 12,000 pieces of hand-sorted Minnesota dolomite, a stone whose color and texture creates the feel of a Southwestern pueblo. The elves behind our holiday exhibit—Paul Busse and his team at Applied Imagination—have re-created the distinctive façade with a less exotic material—cork.

    2. Setting up the full exhibit in the Eiteljorg’s Clowes Court takes only three days from the time trucks roll in carrying “pods” that are transformed into our nation’s national parks to when the final layer of “snow” is added.

    3. Yes, that is the voice of Bob Lamey you hear booming from Lucas Oil Stadium in Jingle Rails. The original exhibit audio featured the veteran Indianapolis Colts radio announcer calling an iconic Super Bowl play by Peyton Manning. The audio was updated when Manning moved to the Denver Broncos in 2012.
      Jingle rails - glacier park
    4. It’s impossible to completely capture the awe-inspiring natural beauty and unique features of America’s parks. But Applied Imagination works extra hard to “wow” visitors to the parks re-created in Jingle Rails. The tallest point in the actual Glacier National Park is Mt. Cleveland, which stretches nearly 10,500 feet into the sky. The peak of our Glacier National Park is 69-inches—pretty impressive in its own right.

    5. How do you replicate a building nearly every Hoosier knows, like the Indiana State Fair’s Normandy Barn? Easy! Well, easy if you’re one of the artists at Applied Imagination, who recognize that eucalyptus leaves make the perfect roof; acorn caps, mahogany pods and cedrella seeds can become weather vanes; coconut hulls look just like cows; sea grape leaves can become doors and contorted witch hazel a downspout.

    Jingle Rails highlights include:

    • Seven ultra-sized G-scale/gauge model trains
    • Nearly 1,200 feet of track
    •  13 overhead walkunder bridges
    • More than 30 features including the Indianapolis, Soldiers and Sailors Monument, One America Tower, Mt. Rushmore, The Grand Canyon, Old Faithful geyser (It actually erupts!) and Golden Gate Bridge

    Jingle Rails
    closes on Monday, January 19.Jingle Rails is sponsored by: Indiana Rail Road, One America and Chase Bank.
