Last week for Lisa and Margo’s show

February 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

Ball in Float series

It’s been a very short month. Many of us seem to be just waking from the winter, and here is a set of images to welcome you into the spring.

You can see the work in the gallery, but this is the last week.

Yes! that means Thursday, Friday and Saturday are the last times for these pieces in the gallery!

Many have sold! Our members talked about what a delightful time they have had sitting the show, and looking at the delicate pieces, poised to lift into another land. They seem like monumental forms, isolated in their places. We have been lost in reflection on the pieces. Very nice!

We also dip back and forth into the video space, drawn by the quiet music calling to us. The images of lines are mesmerizing. In our conversations with Margo, we can see her floating in the water, wondering and delighted by the floating of air up from below her.

Such a wonderful show of work. Come by!

Thursday: Cory Sits,

Friday: Ryan Desmond starts the day, noon to 4; and Jenny Hyde is in for the evening, 4-8pm.

Saturday: Hannah sits from noon to 4, and Bradd finishes the week and show from 4-8.

Come on in. We’d love to talk with you, or just sit and listen to the music as it plays through the space.

Very Nice Visitors Today

First Movements

We had a very nice conversation with folks as they passed through the space this afternoon. The Feminist Club from Lewis and Clark High School stopped in after they were at KYRS. We had a delightful conversation with them about the work, working, and art.

Another couple came through as they were thinking about going to the movies this weekend at the Magic Lantern. They were excited to see Kurt’s paintings, and gave us some insights into how they are painted. Milk as a mild mask in some of the paintings.

Some backed goods floated through the space, as another visitor walked through and looked.

All in all, a very nice day.

More on Friday this week, and Saturday too!

We had a slue of folks in the space last night, and then today, folks swept through on their way to the movies at the Magic Lantern. It’s been a steady stream of interested folks.

We are open a bit more for this month. Those working in the colleges are signing up for more time in the gallery.

Coma by and see the work.

Bradd dropped off some new work today. Roger has a couple of new things in the space as well.

But, if you wanted Bernadette’s Walking Totem/ Cane Shoe last and nails, it’s too late. Should have gotten that last night!

Bradd has a wall of amazing drawings. It looks like a collection of work for the past year. But it also looks like longer too.
It’s delightful.

Masks are the thing for this Saturday, October 25th

If you have some interest, we have a mask workshop for this Saturday, from 1-3 pm.

Lance and Hannah will be helping with the mask, and solving problems as you articulate what you would like to be, other than yourself, of course. Imaginations are opne, and so is the possibility of what  can be done.

Come and see the excitement. Join in! Bring the little people to enable us to see their vision of the world.

We love that part.

It’s the best!
