  • In February Two Rivers Gallery will feature an exhibit of traditional Turkish arts – Ebru and Kaat’i, done by two University of Nevada, Reno graduate students, Meral Tunc-Ozdemir and Hasna Akbas with a grant from the Nevada Arts Council for water marbling. Meral: I am a scientist; I do experiments for days or months even for years and then I write the results on my lab books. I am a mother; I play with my kids, and then I write lullabies for them. I am a freelance writer for a scientific and spiritual magazine; I read about interesting things and then and I write articles about them. In brief, all my life, I have been writing. Therefore, I want to write in a way that will let me express myself and my Turkish cultural heritage and will set my feelings free from words. I believe that pen, kretuar, brush and colors help me do it. I do Turkish calligraphy, henna, water marbling and kaati so my ability to draw lines have developed a lot. I can also add another dimension to my art work by using the henna, kaati or marbling patterns in calligraphy or vice versa. I also combine my contemporary art knowledge with traditional Turkish art forms, which makes it even more exciting for me.


    One of the most unique and beautiful forms of Turkish art is Ebru, or water marbling. Ebru is formed by drawing designs with dye on top of water, and then carefully placing paper on the surface of the water in order to absorb the dye. The earliest examples of Ebru are found in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, and are dated 1539, but the detail and quality of the work suggests that Ebru was present long before this time in the Ottoman Empire. Ebru has traditionally been rarely signed, and therefore many great artists remain unnamed. Modern day students may study for more than 10 years before being considered master marblers, learning how to make the perfect dye, water bath, and design. Since each dye bath can only be transferred to paper once, every original piece of Ebru is unique.

    The first step in Ebru is getting the perfect dye. Dyes are created from various organic substances. Soil from Istanbul, white lead, indigo from Pakistan, and red ochre are used to create the perfect color. 24-karat gold may be added to the dye in order to provide shimmer and shine. The dye is mixed with ox-gall, and water, an art form in itself, since each dye is unique depending on the time of year collected, its age, and its fineness. Ebru artists often spend years simply learning the art of mixing dye, before ever attempting their first marble. The next step in Ebru is getting the perfect water bath in which to place the dye. White kitre, a gum like substance, must be place in the Ebru water in order to keep the dye design in place and in order to allow the design to stick to the paper. Fresh kitre is available in herbal shops during the fall, and every marbler buys enough kitre to last an entire year. The density of the kitre, along with the type of water being used, requires the marbler to make many attempts before getting the correct stickiness. Too little, and the design spreads before it can be finished and won't adhere clearly to the paper. Too much, and the paper becomes difficult to remove, again smearing the design. Next, the marbler gathers her homemade horsehair brushes for detail work, needles for dropping dye onto the water, and homemade combs for drawing the dye through the water. The water is placed in a tray, only slightly larger than the paper to be used. Now, the creative portion of the work begins. Using only a mental idea of the finished product, the marbler drops dye onto the water surface with the needles, spreads the dye with the handmade combs, and uses the

  • brushes to draw a design. Flowers, birds, geometric designs, and calligraphy are common choices for the Ebru artist.

    THE ART OF KAAT'I (CUT OUT RELIEF) Kaat'i is the art of stenciling intricate designs into leather or paper. For the last 700 years, Ottomans have used it to decorate the bindings of religious and philosophical texts. A nevregen, or a small, sharp knife was used to carve into the paper and the leather. The process of pasting was done with a mixture called cirisli muhallebi. This was a mixture of milk, rice flour and book binder's paste. The surfaces on which the cut-outs were pasted was called male. Those surfaces on which the cut-outs were directly carved were called female.

    HEAL MAPPS™ (Healthy Eating Active Living: Mapping Attributes using Participatory Photographic Surveys) is an exciting OSU Extension community engagement program that helps to document residents’ experience of place with respect to healthy eating and active living supports and barriers. We will provide your community with a MAPPS™ report to help facilitate and guide your community efforts for creating a community environment which supports eating healthy and being physically active. Here’s how it works: Step 1: Attend an introductory MAPPS™ meeting to learn the process. Take photographs of your community on your own with a GPS/Camera device. This takes just a few hours and is fun and easy to do. All equipment is provided. Two dates scheduled: Feb 9 (Saturday) and Feb 12 (Tuesday).

    Step 2: Approximately 2 weeks later, review the photos with the other participants and begin identifying your community’s attributes that support or hinder healthy eating and active living during a focus group discussion in your community. Scheduled for Tuesday, February 26 Step 3: Approximately 2 weeks later, gather with friends and neighbors over a complimentary meal provided by GROW Healthy Kids and Communities to complete a community narrative. Share experiences with others by exploring your community’s supports and barriers through photographs. Community meeting scheduled for March 12 Step 4: Develop strategies and find solutions you and your community can use to improve the health of your environment.

We are very active in our community and you will find FCE volunteers at many local events. Oregon FCE is a non-profit organization of volunteers who have worked on such issues as improving sanitary requirements in hospitals, women’s labor laws, requirements for high school teachers, and funding for the state library. Nationally, we began the school hot lunch program and pushed for bookmobile libraries. FCE asked for and got money from the legislature to fund an OSU research study on the dental caries problem in Oregon. We’ve studied our county governments and monitored their activities; worked on county and state fair boards to improve their quality; sponsored programs on rural road safety, farm safety, home safety, bike safety, Defensive Driving courses, campaigns to get the drunk drivers off the road, and child seatbelt laws. Current educational programs focus on the environment, children and television, literacy, and global issues. Current concerns include addressing the growing need for food banks, for shelters for the homeless, and for reducing the violence against women and children. Oregon FCE members donate thousands of volunteer hours and dollars to these causes.

    Chiloquin Branch Library - The library has many ways to get involved and many fun ways to contribute to your local community. Some opportunities: 1. Storytime: If you would like to read two or three stories to a small group or preschoolers, and lead them in a simple craft or activity, the library staff can use your help. Story time is at Thursday 3 PM during the school year. 2. Summer Reading Program: There are many opportunities during the summer to help out with this very worthwhile program. 3. Honor collections: these are racks of paperback books, magazines and audiovisual materials that patrons may check out without a library card. By offering these collections, more people in the community can be reached and a greater diversity of materials can be made available without incurring the costs of cataloging and processing items for the general collections. The staff would like to have some help in keeping these racks orderly, attractive and relevant. Check with the librarian for information on how to “adopt a rack”. 4. Help with sorting donations. 5. Go through Books for Sale section and tidy it once a month or so. Stop in at the library and see what they need or give them a call at 783-3315.
