Workshop this Weekend
and it’s already Thursday!
We can’t believe how fast this week has passed. Maybe it was going to the workshop on watercolor last weekend.
Maybe it’s the Create Spokane activity schedule.
So much to do.
Come by and make a little something for your place.

What fun this is going to be!
Roger will help folks make mobiles in the space. He says these are not the classic objects hanging from yarn on a wire hanger. The type from kindergarden church classes. These are three to five struts with objects hanging from them. And they swing around the space.
We hope he talks about how to hang them from ceilings. We are sure of that. And he will cover modifying them to work in rooms, if they don’t quite work out when they get home.
Getting them home will be the exciting part.
The workshop is Saturday from 1 to 3 PM.
It is free of charge, and limited materials are supplied, courtesy of Spokane Art Supply
along with instruction, of course.

We have Tobe Harvey in or space today giving a workshop on watercolor painting.
The work he does is very interesting. You can see from the match box paintings above. This is an image from this past December and our Small works show.
Today, Tobe will be helping you make your own painting!
We are providing materials and the instruction free of charge. You are going to be able to walk off with a small piece from the time with Tobe. The best part is you will be walking away with the experience of painting! Trying something and doing some work is the best way to learn. You will be able to ask Tobe questions as you work on your piece. And then, you will be able to do more when you return to your home, this evening. We are sure you will have the skills to do more. You can get materials to do water colors at home in many places. We often get things at Spokane Art on Monroe. They have a good collection of folks working there who know what they are doing, and can direct you to getting started. A small set of brushes and a set of pan colors is about all you need to start.
Workshop is 1 to 3 PM.
If you go early, visit with Margo Cass-Stevens or Kurt Madison about the work in the space, and that they think about it. Kurt was wonderful last week in his presentation and conversation about the work. We would love to see you, for the workshop or to look and muse about the work in the gallery. Looks like it will be a nice day to visit.
We are located at 25 West Main Street.
One block west of Division.

We are open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
There is the show of new work by Ryan Desmond. Ryan is working with wax and oil with additives of kibble. Last week’s walk through with Ryan and Kurt was nice. Many folks came for the conversation, and stayed to keep investigating the ideas in the work.
Cori is sitting the space on Thursday afternoon from noon to five.
That’s a quiet time, so we think it’s a good time to visit and question the work or have quiet conversations with friends.
Friday: Lisa Nappa is sitting in the afternoon from noon to four,
the Bernadette will be sitting from four to eight.
Saturday: Kurt and Margo are sitting the space from noon to eight. We have listed them as sitting together because they trade of time, and are able to keep the place open when someone has to walk off to do an activity like pay for parking. They also encourage a conversation about the work, and working.
Don’t forget that we also have a watercolor workshop from 1 to 3 that afternoon! Come and visit and see what Tobe is showing folks.
That’ll be a fun time!

Kurt and Ryan: what is this?
Today at 1 pm, Kurt and Ryan will be talking about the work in the gallery.
We loved how many folks came around to see us last night. It was a great time. We also loved all the excitement form the Terrain project.
So much was going on last night, we had a difficult time keeping up with everything.
We know many of the venues we were not able to visit are open today, and welcoming folks to come by and visit. We are looking forward to a few, less frantic conversations, and some time to look and reflect on what folks are showing in town.
We are open today from Noon to Eight.
Hannah sits the gallery from noon to four,
and then we will see who is in the space.

We have a conversation between Kurt Madison and Ryan Desmond about the work in the gallery for the month of October.
You know this is Create Spokane month, yes?
We are doing this as part of the Create Spokane, and as a part of what we see as an educational part of our work as a gallery.
This is not to say the conversation is closed, or stuffy, or without its edges. We are looking forward to these two talking about what we have. They are very entertaining, by themselves.
Together is going to be a very interesting project.
It’ll be loads of fun.
You can join in, of course.
