2019 Featured Artists
Best of Show: Jeffery Fuch
Congratulations Jeffery Fuchs Wood Turning for winning Best of Show 2018!
I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife Robin Laughlin and Uma, our awesome Golden Retriever. By day I’m a civil engineer serving as Public Works Director in Tualatin, a medium sized town located south of Portland. In my free time, I make things, garden, cook, rock climb, run, ride bikes, drink wine and beer, eat really good food, buy arts and crafts, and live a good life. I love the mountains, forests, desert, ocean, and art.
I’ve been making things since I was a child. I grew up in a family that made things. We also raised sheep, cows, chickens, rabbits, bees, and fruits and vegetables. I learned to weld before I was in high school and I helped my dad work on cars and our tractor. It seems like we were always building or fixing something.
In 2003, I bought my first lathe and made my first tiny bowl, which we still use as a salt pig.
I love watching the forms develop as I turn a piece of wood. I love making art you can look at and touch. I also really like making art people can use.
Best of Jury: Aneela Fazal
Congratulations Impressionist Art by Aneela Fazal for winning Best of Jury! This is decided by the three person jury who juries all arts and crafts vendors for Fall Festival. Aneela Fazal was chosen for the freshness and vibrancy of her work, as well as her professional and sophisticated presentation!
I’m a self taught contemporary artist who finds inspiration through life experiences and travels to places where my art takes me, things our eyes observe and can’t explain in so many words. My current body of work is very much based on color exploration and the added dimension of texture. I’m using colors that are opposites on the color wheel. The series I have created is called “Outside the lines”, my inspiration behind this is my daughter who has taught me to look beyond perfection and break some rules. I want my art to reach out to people in meaningful ways and have them find their own stories in the pieces I create.
