For the final stop of our “Artist’s Journey” series with Subaru, we made our way to the studio of Los Angeles-based photographer Mikael Kennedy. Writer/musician Jeff Thrope joined to talk friendship, road tripping and the American landscape. Mikael and Jeff have been creative comrades for over a decade and their initial “meet up” for a beer in Brooklyn evolved into a collaborative relationship spanning multiple area codes and major personal milestones. … Read More
Jay Nelson is a dude’s dude. With an Instagram account that won’t quit, he is best known for his whimsical campers and elaborate treehouses all made from repurposed wood, a natural material he has been drawn to since childhood. He is reluctant to call himself an “artist” by traditional standards, preferring terms like surfer, painter, father, doodler, husband, fort builder and cave dweller to describe his process as a creative. … Read More
Hands down, the RANGE community is one of the coolest, most creative networks out there. We are consistently blown away by our talented friends and family; the painters and photographers, the sculptors, the metal manipulators, and more. When we started publishing RANGE Magazine a few years ago, we knew our medium would always be evolving, and we definitely wanted to take our ideas off the page and into real life. Typically, when we come up with a kooky idea, it ends up stashed away in the “one day” folder, which by now is filled with concepts that rarely see the light of day. So when Subaru invited us to crack open that folder of inspiration, we knew we had to go big and let them in on one of our favorites, The Open Pass, a wide-ranging group art show showcasing multifaceted creatives in the outdoor industry.
We don’t always know where the Open Pass will take us, but the unknown is at the heart of any adventure. A few weeks ago, we found ourselves in the Bay Area on a mission to meet a Subaru owner artist, Heather Day. What we loved most about talking with Heather is her intrinsic connection to her work. “Pushing and pulling paint around a canvas can often get very physical, which I like,” she explained. Painting from life, she treats each piece like a living organism. She takes what she learns from one canvas and applies it to the next, adding pigments, textures, and layers as she goes throughout her day. … Read More
In keeping with our tradition of mixing up mediums, we are excited to announce our first-ever group art show. Curated by RANGE and presented by our friends from Subaru, The Open Pass is the abstract expanse that exists between our urban and outdoor identities. It is the intersection of adventure and design, where flora and fauna meet brick and mortar. The Open Pass redefines what it means to draw inspiration from nature by gathering visionaries who believe the arts and the environment go hand in hand.
Let me ask you a few of questions. What have you eaten today? How much water have you had? No, La Croix doesn’t count. How long have you been sitting at your desk? What are your plans to get active after work? If you’re anything like me, it’s already 2:00 p.m. and you’ve had about two cups of coffee, a fried egg on toast for breakfast, and snacked on a carrot and yogurt, which inevitably turns into your lunch. You’ve managed to drink at least two glasses of water, despite it being the middle of the day, and the only walk you’ve taken so far was to get to your studio about five hours ago. … Read More
By now, you may or may not know about Portland, Oregon’s surf scene. Maybe you’re a local, or you heard about it in passing from an OG Pacific Northwest wave runner or a coastal transient. Or maybe you’ve made the two-hour ride outside the city to brave the moody waters of the Pacific Ocean and scope it out yourself once or twice. But if you haven’t heard about Portland’s surf scene, you’re about to. … Read More
