|Little Lucky Blue, by Nancy Cuevas|
The Village Gallery’s featured artist for November is painter Nancy Cuevas. As a child, Cuevas created art by copying the artwork on the back of her dad’s Reader’s Digests. Her favorite media are oil, pastel, and charcoal, and her paintings range from larger than life-size to small scale. Her subjects include figures, portraits, still life and animals. She says, “Setting out the paints, mixing color, and figuring out exactly what I am seeing is very meditative. My work takes on a life of it’s own.
My subjects become very familiar to me as I deconstruct their physical forms and rebuild them again on two-dimensional canvas. There is something joyful in creating a set of moments...my moments.” Cuevas started teaching about five years ago. Her work can be seen at http://www.nancycuevas.com. For more info on her classes, please visit www.cuevasartstudio.com.

The Wine Cellar on Saltzman is helping to make your holidays merry and bright. This year, enjoy holiday side dishes custom-made for you by Chef Melissa Stanton. Melissa will lovingly (and deliciously) prepare classic sides like stuffing, mashed potatoes, and original cranberry sauce. However, if you’re looking to add a little gourmet flavor to your Thanksgiving dinner, try her savory oyster stuffing, fully-loaded mashed potatoes, or zesty orange cranberry sauce. Of course, no meal would be complete without a fresh-baked apple or pumpkin pie or New York style cheesecake.
Call or come by to order your Thanksgiving sides and they will be ready for Wednesday or Thanksgiving morning pick-up.
The Wine Cellar is located at 525 NW Saltzman Road. Contact them at the shop at 503-643-5655 or 503-704-5805 mobile.
