SAGE Member, Beverly Kleiber, currently has her work on display at Outback Temple of Venus, a designer "shopping and temple environment" in Ashland, Oregon through Summer, 2019.

"Outback Temple of Venus" is a designer clothing store and community (for lack of a better word) started by Devi Jacobs, who is a well-known figure in the west coast counterculture scene.

"It has become a much sought after venue, largely because of Devi's talent for attracting people on the adventuresome edge of our culture and her compassionate embracing of everyone and their eccentricities" said Kleiber.

The location in Ashland caters to those who come to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival every year.

Kleiber recently sold one of her pieces, "White Raven Has a Moment" (below, left) in SAGE's Members' Gallery, and has a new piece for sale at SAGE titled "Raven After the Fires" (below, right).
