Open today! US!

It’s Saturday, and a great day to be doing things!
We know, because we have a long list of things to do:
Mowing, planting, trans-planting,
catching up on laundry,
Soccer matches to see and help with,
Walks with friends, family and our imaginations.
There are folks downtown setting up chairs for a parade this evening. Some of us like parades. Some don’t enjoy them too much.
As you wander around today, we’d love to see you and show you what is in the space.
Katie Creyts and Lance Sinnema’s work is up. It’s wonderfully entertaining. Yet a point to start thinking about more than entertainment. Lance’s constructions are interesting in how they are disguising the described images under the text. It’s all wrapped up in a layer of words, none of which effectively tell the viewer what the image is behind the wrapper. A very nice idea. A challenge to think about how we use language, and how our language deceives us.
Katie Creyts’s work moves beyond and behind words as she tells stories. The stories are about how we are expected to behave, and how those expectations are placed before us. Katie has a number of forms in the space. This image seems to come with a narrative delightful in its telling, and chilling in its implications. Maybe there is an idea from or about swimming this summer.
Or stepping into the present.
Come on by! Muse with us about the possibilities of the work.
Carrie Scozarro is sitting the space from noon to four. That’s a prime time to be staking-out your seating for the parade.
Bradd Skubinna is in from four to eight.
