We are looking for members.
We are working on our lists, but we know there are others out there we:
A) Don’t Know about,
B) Have forgotten about,
C) Have just moved here and are looking for a place to explore visual options,
D) Would love to meet.
Send us a note,
Come by for a visit,
Say hello to one of the members as they walk down the street, and ask about the secret hand-shake.
How about it?
It’s a place to see what can happen.

Come see what Larry and Nancy have in the space.
Larry has a collection which sparks our imagination. We know the kids from next door will have a good time looking and imagining where Larry has picked up his pieces. The lighted forms are fun.
Nancy has brought in work by Cory Peeke. We have yet to see that, but the image we have is a good one. The title tells a story resonating with many.
We think scale could be a challenge.

Friday is the last day for the current exhibit
One Million Bones
This is a project recognizing and remembering the genocides and humanitarian crisis through out the world.
There will be a collection of bones made by students in Washington state, as a process of education, and remembrance.
This is only on one day, so come by for this exhibit.

Saranac Art Projects is looking for a few more members. Are you interested in direct envolvement in an exhibit space committed to challenging work? Are you interested in helping with Spokane’s visual research lab? Think you can help us re-define what visual culture can be, and can be understood as in the upper Columbia watershed?
We need some members, and people with vision about what visual culture can be here. We are not saying we have the answer. We are dedicated to trying things, and participating in the conversation about what our culture can be here.
Check out the membership application guide lines.
We would love to hear from you.

But we here know that. We are a part of the economy, making things, sharing ideas trying to find a method of keeping excitement alive between us and within us.
This is, to turn it back to the auction, why we are supporting KYRS. It’s one spot where the ideas of art and exploring and investigating mix into a broad stream of experience. Music is ephemeral. This is the reason performance music is so wonderful. We can see the players play within the structure they have to work within.
Dj’s have become another method of music making. They are remaking by re-mixing. It’s not like the process is different at a meta-scale.
Come play with us next Friday. See the DJ’s do their thing! It’s ephemeral, and delightful.

Our August show is
a work of collaboration between
DJ’s at KYRS and Saranac Art Projects Members and
Other Invited Artists
The collaboration began with audio compilations created
by the KYRS team that were given to artists in the community. Each
artist is making work inspired by the audio.
we are having a silent auction for you to have the works to take home. Our members are all excited about this. You should have seen the hands go up when Bernadette asked who wanted to do something. We love to see what happens when we work. It is a wonderful step to see new vistas spring out from something new collaborative territory”
We love looking and moving around in those spaces.
And don’t forget: the Closing Party! August 24: 5 to 8 pm

work that regional arts enthusiasts might not otherwise see (especially from
out-of-state artists) and continue to promote conversations about
