Tobe and Roger have work in the space.

Come by and see

We had students from Mount Spokane and Mead High Schools by this evening. We delighted in watching them take pictures of the work. We wonder if we ranked at the level of a “selfey” but think that may he ha bit much.

Insult & Compliment Generators

Last week for the January show.

We have had loads of folks coming through the space. A wonderful mix of folks from the Arts community of Spokane. We have had some good conversations about the history of Spokane, and the high plains of Eastern Washington.

We have also talked about the playfulness of pulling things together. We love the conversations about how to use materials in different ways to open our imagination to “what if” options.

Today: Ellen Picken sits the gallery today from two to six.

Friday: Mariah Boyle is in from noon to four, and then

Lisa Nappa and Jenny Hyde are closing the time from four to eight.

Saturday: Kurt Madison is in from noon to four, and

Hannah Koeske closes the gallery from four to eight.

There is an opening reception for Women+Art+Media at the Richmond Art Collective.

Check them out tonight from four to nine at the Richmond.

We have a number of members showing there.

MAC opening Card

We have our work at the MAC until the end of September.

We would love to have you take a look at it. We feel the collection is strong and diverse.

Many of the artists involved have been in exhibits all around the world, and here we have a beautiful, open installation of works.

A nice conversation around space and investigating ideas.

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!
