Stamina-building, Day 4
That’s really what this week is about…starting to walk, and building stamina…but in the most fun possible way. Today’s “work” began with a sunny-day breakfast with some artist friends, including Violet, who got right to work with crayons… and then getting the quilt (for the soon-to-arrive Seattle baby) safely into his grandmother’s hands… After lunch […]
Variety or Confusion??
Since Thursday evening we’ve been on the road and have seen such a variety of stuff I hesitate to try and cram it into one little post…but here goes… Thursday evening we went up to see Stephan Soihl’s new show at Blackfish Gallery…a real tour de force of his mechanized sculptures…created this year in spite […]
Art Builds Community…
Mary Lou Zeek has been showing the work of 14 local artists in May in both of her Salem gallery spaces. Thursday was the gala at Gallery 2…right in “her own back yard”…literally… and we all went to see our own work and the work of our colleagues… but the real fun was the party… […]
Mary Lou Zeek, Gallery 2
This morning I stuffed some art in the car and headed up to Mary Lou Zeek’s to drop off the two pieces for the second half of her show, which opens next week. Gallery two is in her pretty back yard (The blank green wall is where my pieces will go) …and here’s the nice […]
“Beyond the Gallery Door”
Tonight there was a gala opening at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery downtown. This month Mary Lou is featuring the work of 14 local artists in two exhibits, and has created a book with studio photos, photos of work and a statement by each artist. The idea is a truism…Art Builds Community…ABC…as easy as that. […]
Wednesday Art Notes….
A quiet day around town today. Visited the stadium in Bush’s Pasture Park (it was the purchase of 10 acres by Willamette University for this stadium in the 1950’s that kept a big road being put through the middle of the park…thanks Willamette…) but we went not for park history, but to see Robert Hess’ […]
Living the Creative Life: Sue-Del McCulloch
I’m in love with Sue-Del’s Akebana cherry tree, and we’d set Monday as the day I might come out and take a look. She and John planted it when it was a “whip” no bigger than her finger. Now it sits majestically with it’s columns (designed by architect friend Bill Lindburg) and although the buds […]
…And Speaking of Books…
I got thinking of a book I made a few years ago for a show at Mary Lou Zeek’s… each artist was sent a book and had to make something out of it…I’ve always wondered where this one went?
Only a few more shopping days left…no better time to make the rounds like I did here and here…don’t forget Bush Barn, Cooke’s Stationery(stocking stuffers!!) The Arbor, Ma Valise, Mary Lou Zeek, The Art Department, Greenbaum’s, Ranch Records, Fitts…
