Here is one of the show stoppers

July 10, 2014 § Leave a comment


This is one of the Ampersands that has been drawing a lot of attention. There is either a chuckle of recognition, or playful reaction as visitors come to see this on the walls.

Come to see the piece in-itself.

But, maybe it’s not “in-itself though. Maybe that’s just how you see it.

We’d love to see you.


See the polar bear and cool off

July 10, 2014 § Leave a comment

It’s going to be hot in the city today. We have a cool space to take a bit of time to look at Bernadette’s work. She has a polar bear skin in the space, and a video of the skin wondering whet to do in the heat.

Come on by and say hello.
Lisa Nappa in in this afternoon, from noon to five.

This week: We meet Hoopfest

June 26, 2014 § Leave a comment


Yes, It’s Hoopfest.

A full set of streets, activities, and delights.

It’s lovely to see so much activity in the center of Spokane. We love to see folks come to town, visit with friends, and catch-up on what’s going on in the area.

We have works by Bernadette Veilbig and Otis Bardwell fill the gallery.

Bernadette’s collection has a couple of audio/video pieces we love. You can hear them through headphones. They are little screens, but enjoyable. She is working on a couple of different ideas about losing and looking.


Otis is investigating an idea handed down to us from the First Century and the Romans! He then moved it a bit closer to our period and thought of the Byzantines and their delightful approach to things.

You can see the physical documentation of his research in the gallery.


Sitting this week:

Thursday: Larry

Friday: Bernadette from Noon to Four, and

Otis & Bernadette from Four to Eight!

Saturday: Katie Creyts From Noon to Four, and

Joh Faulks from Four to Eight.

See you in the Streets and the Gallery


You can’t dance with the skin.

Some folks think you can dance with a bear. Bernadette has a skin in the space. She’s been working on a conversation.
Come see the documentation in the gallery.

Look at how Otis’s piece has changed

We were thrilled with the turn out last Friday!
Thanks everyone for coming. Hundreds of folks. Lots of talking.
We came in thinking Otis’s front window would look nice, as it dries. We aren’t surprised in the least.

A Little Touch of Grace

When we were in the space today, we saw this wonderful little touch.

We have a couple places in the house to put this piece.

It would do well above the text generator, a reminder of what we can do when we don’t think in straight lines.

Opening reception tonight!

Otis was finishing up a couple of things yesterday when we stopped in to say hello. It’s well worth a visit.
Bernadette is welcoming zombies to the space.
Everyone is welcome, of course.
