We are having a closing reception, supported by YELP!
Rachel Smith, Jenny Hyde, Lisa Nappa, and Juventino Aranda are expected to be there from 6-8 pm.
This is a possibility to see the work before we close the show, and see the work move away from our gallery.
We have been thrilled to have the work in the space. It’s a wonderful collection of work. We delight in the exploration of lines of bounding our experiences.
Come by and say hello, and have a conversation with Juventino, Lisa, Jenny and Rachel.

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.

This week is a nice period of time for us.
We have Kate Vita and Nancy Hathaway showing work in the gallery.
Here is one of Nancy’s pieces. They are layers of work. Some if the image seems to be obscured from, maybe drawing. Part of the whole is the hand made paper, with inclusions.
We love looking at them, and thinking about what is going on as Nancy ,makes the pieces. A recurring question is what the layers suggest. Sometimes, they seem like Chinese scroll paintings. The middle passages between dramatic scenes. Or maybe they are references to Turner’s paintings and his romantic quality. Maybe after the images have been filtered through our contemporary experience.
This week, we have some delightful folks sitting the gallery. You can muse with them as you look at Nancy’s images.
Thursday: Hannah sits from noon to five pm.
Friday: Dan McCann sits from noon to four, and is followed by Lance.
Saturday: Margo Casstevens and Kurt Madison sit the gallery.
Everyone would be great to visit with while you are in the gallery.
Tell us what you see in Nancy’s paper constructions!
And just across the hall is the Saranac Pub, too.

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!
We look forward to seeing you this afternoon!

Workshop this Weekend
and it’s already Thursday!
We can’t believe how fast this week has passed. Maybe it was going to the workshop on watercolor last weekend.
Maybe it’s the Create Spokane activity schedule.
So much to do.
Come by and make a little something for your place.
