We are happy to be mentioned in the Spokesman Review today!
We are so happy. And there will be a reception in a week as well! Look for cards in the mail and from our members.

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.

We sometimes feel as though the world is washing away. Carrie Scozzaro has a great piece articulating this idea. The piece is in the space this month.
We are open today, if you would like to see the work. She has a number of other pieces as she looks at the world. It’s a lovely conversation she has been having about expectations we have of each other.
Come and take a look.

We have a busy week this week. And it’s not because of a reception here at the gallery space.
We have our regular hours, though, and would like for you to come on by to see what Carrie and Margo have been doing.
Margo Casstevens, Kurt Madison, and Roger Ralston are all in the Drawn to the Wall exhibit and project at the Jundt Museum on Gonzaga’s campus. The reception is thursday night (tonight for those reading this as it bursts into the web) from 6PM to 8PM. Carl Richardson (one of our alumni members) and Elaine Green are also a part of the exhibit of drawings. The drawings are quite large, and interesting in their diversity.
Friday morning, there is a walk through with the artists providing comments about their pieces and how they approached the work. THe drawings are up until October 12th. Then they paint the drawings over.
Art walk in Coeur d’Alene is Friday evening, with the Art Spirit celebrating its 150th exhibit! That is also a grand mark to hit, and we are far from that point in our life. We raise a toast to that marker and Steve Gibbs’s fine efforts.
Now, this week in the gallery, Hannah Koeske is in the space for today, Thursday, from noon to 5 PM.
Friday: Dan McCann sits the space from noon to four, then
Bernadette Y Vielbig sits from four to eight.
Saturday starts with Mariah Boyle from noon to four, followed by
Bradd Skubinna or Jon Faulks (we are working on the specifics, but it shouldn’t be too hard. Maybe you can check for us or be surprised)
Have a great time this weekend looking at work, and exploring the high plateau and mountains surrounding us.

We are around this week.
Friday: Dan and then Jeff (our President and Grand Leader)
Saturday: Margo and Kurt (which means both are around much of the time)
We love talking to folks. We would also talk about drawing, or making things.
It’s what we like to do. Make things and think about making things. Ideas behind all of it fascinate us.
But just looking is fine too.
Most of us like to look as well as make.

On Friday we are having a reception for a welcome showing of new members.
We also have a collection of works by our members, stalwarts all, who remain at work even without a deadline looming over their head. Come see what we have been doing.
We are looking forward to the reveal, and to visit after the holiday.
It feels as though we have been working hard, but there have been numerous Saturday/Sunday cycles piling on into the week.
What day is it?
Well, we are readying ourselves for the new year.
We would love to see you come by and se the work.
