July 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

Cool new artwork to match hot August nights at Saranac. Check out Mariah Boyle and Connie Pierson through August 30.

We have a reception on the first Friday in August. We are looking forward to this in a big way. This is Mariah Boyle’s last show with us, and Connie Pierson’s first! It’s an exciting transition for us as we look forward to the fall of 2014!

Annual clean

Our annual clean.
Loads of members showed up for our monthly meeting.
We had a delightful conversation with Shannon about Spokane and what we are seen as in the community.

See you soon!

Our current show is in the space until Saturday

We just want you to know the work is in the space until Saturday.

We know it’s going to be a hot weekend. We also know our space has some cool air, and the pub is across the way.

Come see Bernadette’s work and you can catch the snow from this past winter.

Polar Bear Study

What do you think the window looks like, NOW?

This image is from the weekend after the opening of our current show.

Otis Bardwell covered the window with clay, and drew in the clay by pushing his fingers into the moist clay. The bricks are also drawings.

And, if you look closely, Otis made an Ampersand in the clay. You can see the contrast between the brick outlines and swirl in the clay in contrast to the finger marks.

It’s a nice compliment of organic material’s lines in frames of bricks, and then the human marks producing the human mark of language.

We will keep this short, and cut it here, because we can see a rhetorical investigation looming ahead, like a deep cliff of interest.

We will be back soon from this fall into a reverie.

Come visit!

This is one of the Ampersands that has been drawing a lot of attention. There is either a chuckle of recognition, or playful reaction as visitors come to see this on the walls.

Come to see the piece in-itself.

But, maybe it’s not “in-itself though. Maybe that’s just how you see it.

We’d love to see you.

See the polar bear and cool off

It’s going to be hot in the city today. We have a cool space to take a bit of time to look at Bernadette’s work. She has a polar bear skin in the space, and a video of the skin wondering whet to do in the heat.

Come on by and say hello.
Lisa Nappa in in this afternoon, from noon to five.

This week: We meet Hoopfest

June 26, 2014 § Leave a comment


Yes, It’s Hoopfest.

A full set of streets, activities, and delights.

It’s lovely to see so much activity in the center of Spokane. We love to see folks come to town, visit with friends, and catch-up on what’s going on in the area.

We have works by Bernadette Veilbig and Otis Bardwell fill the gallery.

Bernadette’s collection has a couple of audio/video pieces we love. You can hear them through headphones. They are little screens, but enjoyable. She is working on a couple of different ideas about losing and looking.


Otis is investigating an idea handed down to us from the First Century and the Romans! He then moved it a bit closer to our period and thought of the Byzantines and their delightful approach to things.

You can see the physical documentation of his research in the gallery.


Sitting this week:

Thursday: Larry

Friday: Bernadette from Noon to Four, and

Otis & Bernadette from Four to Eight!

Saturday: Katie Creyts From Noon to Four, and

Joh Faulks from Four to Eight.

See you in the Streets and the Gallery
