Join us in welcoming two very talented artists to Rock Creek Corner at our artist’s reception on Sunday, July 14 from 3:00 - 5:00 pm in the dining room. All ages are welcome.

Hillsboro resident Savannah Dollison hails from Illinois and began pursuing art from a young age. Her whimsical and imaginative works are balanced by the use of real life objects in her acrylic paintings and prints.

Mandy Cobb is one of our stellar servers at RCC when she is not in class or busy with her work in art and theatre and has been scribbling pictures and words as long as she can remember. She lives in Portland with two cats and many, many books.

You can enjoy Savannah and Mandy’s works now through the end of August. All pieces are available to purchase directly from the artist. So bring a friend or two to the reception and support your local creative community!

Father’s Day is right around the corner on June 16. Whether you’re fueling up to help dad around the yard, or looking for a leisurely brunch or dinner so you can relax and just enjoy his company, we’ve got you covered.

For brunch, think steak and eggs, a manly breakfast sandwich, toasted pecan french toast and other hearty dishes that will start the day out right. For dinner, a double cut stuffed pork chop should do the trick — or any of your regular menu favorites.

We are accepting reservations for groups of 7 or more and anticipate the weather will be cooperative with patio and dining room seating available. If you have a larger party and need to make a reservation, you may do so by calling: 503.645.8225 and leaving a message on our reservation request line, or by emailing us: contact@rockcreekcorner.com. We look forward to seeing you!

Pints With Purpose/June’s BOM

It’s another great month for fundraising and enjoy a frosty beverage, knowing you’re benefiting a great cause. We have teamed up with our Brewery of the Month and Pints with Purpose partner Backwoods Brewing to make a difference in our local community.

With every Backwoods pint purchased, $1 is donated to 3 Squares throughout the month of June. 3 Squares is a non profit that provides food to hungry children, not just during the school year, but over weekends and school breaks. Awesome, right? And not only does each Backwoods pint help end hunger in our most vulnerable community members, but we’ve also thrown in a bit of chance to up the fun and feel good-ness with a raffle for a Backwoods grand prize at the end of each month. Each pint purchased earns you another entry.

Fridays are even better with free Backwoods swag with each pint (supplies limited) and we also have a tasting event scheduled for Thursday, June 20 when Backwoods will be in the house, pouring samples and handing out more swag from 5 - 7 pm. It’s a whole month of tasty Backwoods action. So come in with a friend or two and raise a Pint with Purpose!

Pints with Purpose Partner in May

We have partnered with our “brewery” of the month, 2 Towns Ciderhouse to raise funds for the Oregon Humane Society. For each pint of 2 Towns cider purchased throughout May, RCC and 2 Towns will donate $1 to this local shelter. Not only can you feel great about knowing you are supporting the Oregon Humane Society, but with each pint purchased you also gain another entry into the grand prize drawing at the end of the month. This month it’s a Timbers package complete with timbers gear and tickets — very nice! It’s a great reason to enjoy Pints with Purpose all month long! Cheers!

Artist's Reception: Sunday May 19

Join us as we welcome local artist Sue Parman to RCC with a reception Sunday, May 19 from 3:00 - 5:00pm in our dining room where her works are currently on display. All ages are welcome and this event is open to the public.

Sue Parman is an anthropologist and award-winning poet, playwright, writer, and artist interested primarily in storytelling. After thirty years of university teaching in southern California, she moved to Oregon in search of water (literally and metaphorically). As an anthropologist she constantly sketched in travel journals and photographed people in the Scottish Outer Hebrides who haunt her current portraits.

From naturalistic portraits to stylized masks, she explores the terrain of human identity and the contrast and conflict between interior and exterior.  The techniques she uses reveal cracks in the self as she tries to convey how thin-skinned humans are, and how fragile.

Sue’s works are available for purchase directly from the artist.
