I am very proud to have my sculpture “Know Time” included in the 2018-2020 rotation of the Lake Oswego Gallery Without Walls exhibition. I attended nearby Marylhurst University and was inspired by this public art program as a student. Now I get to participate! My sculpture is located near the Safeway on A avenue.
This exhibit includes a series of ten black and white long-exposure images that capture the movements of aerial dancers in the woods at night. The gallery is inside the library, through the main entrance, then to the left across from a row of computers. It is accessible any time during the libraries open hours.
Many years ago, before I was involved with either MU or NWSSA, the white marble crosses at the nunnery cemetery on the campus of Marylhurst University were replaced with more resilient granite crosses, and the marble was donated to the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association. Since then it has been steadily disbursed into the stone carving community, and we will be having an exhibition in early 2019 of what has been sculpted from these stones. The North View Gallery is open Monday - Friday, from 8am - 4pm, and also Saturdays from 11am - 4pm. It is room CT 214 at the PCC Sylvania campus.
I am proud to have been selected for the featured poem of December for the Multnomah Art Center’s Poetry Post! This program provides free copies of a monthly featured poem written in 2017. Take a walk by the Multnomah Art Center and take home a copy.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has created a worthy fundraising program by offering a stamp competition. Stamp submissions were required to be from a list of local species that are threatened. After some research, I was drawn to Bombus Franklini (Franklin’s Bumble Bee), over which there is some question over whether it may already be extinct - the last time it was observed in the wild was 2006 (and that was a single bee). The entries will be judged Saturday, November 3rd, and the winner will be announced at the one-day exhibition of all the entries from 1pm-4pm at Duck Pond Cellars in Dundee, Oregon. Duck Pond will be unveiling a new wine from their “Conservation Cuvee” series and will donate $5 to the ODFW Conservation Program for each bottle purchased.
A three day exhibition, kicked off with the Champagne Reception Friday 11/2 from 6pm - 8:30pm, tickets are $10 advance or $15 at the door, which includes catered hors d’oeuvres and a glass of champagne. Entry between 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday are free and open to the public, with the added draw of artisan booths. All proceeds from the festival are donated to the art programs at Wilsonville High School and Canby High School. Come see the artwork of local artists, including 4 sculptures by yours truly.
Splendorporium has a fun vibe and rotates interesting monthly themes. For October, a “Day of the Dead” and “Tarot” theme is suitable for the Hallow’s Eve holiday. Drop by to see a couple of my playful collages and a plethora of works by other local artists.
This exhibition is a companion to the installation of 15 new public artworks into the Lake Oswego Gallery Without Walls. Myself and the other artists selected for GWW have also submitted works to the 510 Museum and ARTspace to demonstrate our process related to our public sculptures.
