Dean Buchser

Being an artist is a part of me, a part that fills my heart with fun, light and color. I am a craftsman, a master carpenter, a designer and builder of homes, and a wilderness river guide. This is all a part of what makes me who I am and what shapes the art I bring into this world. Creating mosaics for over twenty years, I thrive on the vibrant colors and reflections in my mosaic mirrors. The convex mirrors warp what we see into what it just might be. What exactly is behind the looking glass?

With a zest for Central American culture and my early years in the desert southwest, I sculpt what I have seen in my dreams. There are places in time that change us and sculpt us into who we are, who we have been and who we will become. These little steps or giant leaps we take are so much who we are as people and as artists.

Since 1999 SASH has supported women survivors at the WRC (Women’s Resource Center on SOU Campus and in Medford) and last year SASH started offering support in the QRC (Queer Resource Center on SOU).  This year’s art exhibit will have quite a few new pieces for the show. This year SASH also plans to add spoken word to our expression, offered by students working with Lotus Rising Project and the new education program with JCSART.

Drop by the main classroom to see the SASH exhibit.


  • Friday, April 1, 5:00 – 8:00 pm

  • As always, visitors will find galleries, open studios, art, and artists on all three floors of the Art Center.
