Psst....An Invitation

Installation created at Northwind's new location in the Waterman & Katz Building with the help of Jim Garrett of Garrett Metals and Nimba Anvils fame.  Apart from the dryer hoses circling, twisting, tangling and stretching, there is a space set up for your participation. Grab a tag and show your response to the importance and value of art in your life (images, words or ??).  There are materials for you to use and post with - or take a tag home and bring it back before the end of November.  There are also tags available at the Jefferson St. Northwind location.  You can pick one up and return it there where it will be posted on the board later (currently the Waterman Katz location is open Sat. 12-4 until the end of November, and a few other days in between.  look forward to seeing your responses!  

If you can't visit in person leave your comment in this blog and I post it on the board with the rest.

Art and the Word - Exhibition at Northwind Gallery

Art and the Word - Exhibition at Northwind Gallery until October 27, 2014

Three of my images from the series, 'Touching Ground' are included in the exhibition.  The words were created from white cotton gloves laid out the land.  The white bird is also made of the same kind of gloves in a more solid form...she often goes goes on walks with me...wanting to fly in particular locations.

These pieces are encaustic photographs on wood panels with which I've been experimenting.  Working with the wax - the heat and fire...reminds me of the alchemical nature in the origin of photographs as well as my own experience of many years working in photographic darkrooms watching the magic of an image slowly materialize in a tray of liquid.

These pieces are on exhibit exhibit at Northwind Gallery in Port Townsend until October 27.  On Oct. 19 at 1pm there will be a presentation by the juror, Alan Newberg, who is a full-time artist maintaining a studio in Bremerton, Washington and is a founding member of the Collective Visions Gallery. 
I look forward to his talk and would love to see you there.

In case you can't make it to the exhibit, you can see the images below.
