We are having a closing reception tonight from 6-8.
YELP! is helping to put this on, and Jenny Hyde, Juventino Aranda, Lisa Nappa, and Rachel Smith are all going to be there.
We are excited, and if you have questions as you have been coming by this month, tonight is a time to ask and clear up those questions.
Come on by!

Our exhibit of Rachel Smith, Juventino Aranda, Lisa Nappa, and Jenny Hyde continues this week.
The theme of lines and movement investigated by these four artists has made our space an interesting place to think about what lines imply and how they are used daily.
This week we are open.
Louise Kodis is in the space Thursday from 2 to 6pm.
Katie Creyts sits the gallery Friday from noon to 4, followed by
Aryn Fields from 4 to 8pm.
Saturday, Kurt Madison and Margo Cassteven sit the gallery from Noon to 8pm.

Border Lines opens Tonight
We have a reception this evening from 5-9.
Come and see the new pieces by Lisa and Jenny.
They have asked Rachel and Juventino to bring works up from Walla Walla.
This exhibition explores the fragility within the concepts we fabricate to construct our realities. Juventino Aranda’s sculptures and drawings substantiate the fickleness of social and political divisions. Rachel Smith’s works on paper remind us how memories provide a questionable framework of experiences. Lisa Nappa’s works in clay and photo collage evoke the subtleties of perception. Jenny Hyde’s prints question the lines between physical and digital reality. Though varied in media, the artists employ meticulousness to their process, the work shares attention to detail and obsessive execution of one’s craft.

We have a grand, playful set of games in the gallery:
Jenny Hyde’s The Living Room, and
Tobe Harvey’s Phi.
Both works explore ideas, and enable you to look for links between experience.
Jenny’s work is a collection and construction of images from a living room. You can look over her construction as a way of looking and spinning through a space. She has constructed a large wall piece from images printed onto cloth. The cloth has been sew together to make a massive wall piece. The images have been knit together from views in the Living Room. Looking at the images you spin around , investigating the space, and what the room contains.
The images are not placed in a linear structure, but knit, one butting up against the other. They are panoramic images made through knitting. Sometimes we have a bit of vertigo as we look at the whole of the construction. But look at the shoes, and that has grounded us.
Jenny has also provided a set of post cards. These are playing cards to enable you to look at the image for specific objects. You can check off the objects, and Jenny has provided ribbons for you to win. As you fill-out and check off the items you find, you earn discounts on other images in the gallery. You can buy a segment of the larger construction, as an individual print, at a discounted cost.
It’s all great fun. Some of us have gotten a couple of great pieces.
Today we are open from noon to eight.
This afternoon, Carrie Scozzaro sits the space from noon to four.
This evening: Dan McCann is in the space from four to eight.
We know they would love to have folks visit. It’s going to be a delightful day, and warm.
We also know there are loads of folks from around the country and the state for a couple of meetings, and lots of conversations. We invite you to come by and visit our project space.
Come say hi.

Tobe Harvey: Phi
Phi is body of work created using the technique of collage
and direct painting. The materials I used are canvas, paper, oil paint,
photographs, watercolor, ink, and pencil. The work depicts unexpected
combinations of form on formats of circles, squares, and golden spirals.
Jenny Hyde: Living Room
The Living Room, an exhibition by Jenny Hyde is an art show
and interactive game all at once. For the past year, Hyde has been
documenting the house she grew up in, taking photographs of everything in
the individual rooms in a meticulous way. The multiple photographs are
stitched together digitally and then physically to create a large scale
immersive image that is close to life size. This work is part of an ongoing
investigation of American landscape.
And there is a game!
But you have to ask Jenny for an invitation to play the game! She has them printed out, and there are special places to have checked off if as you find things in the documentation.
Don’t miss out!
FREE OPENING RECEPTION Friday, April 3, 2015. 5-8 pm

Mugs to know Your Trees
Here are some great mugs. One of our friends, Jenny Hyde, did hand drawings of trees from around here. She is worried about the pines being killed by the bark beetle.
We are also concerned with this issue.
We know we are a part of the problem.
We worry some more.
We also like to know what we are looking at as we drive around the area. Here is one tool, that serves a couple of purposes. We use one in the truck as we drive around. It fits OK in the designed holder on the dash, but we don’t think its for a mug of this type anyway. Then the mug rolls about on the floor.
We are looking forward to having a cup of coffee in this as we go into the forest for a bike ride celebrating the warming trend, and longer days.
Maybe this weekend.
