Seeing color on a grey day....

just makes me want to smile. These sweet little pins of color were created by Suzanne Vinson. They seemed to practically jumped out of the box with their layers and tiny stitching...they took over the gallery with saturated color. yum.

A face to love....

We are working on a house in Portland as of late we are in the demolition stages....at least the dogs were happy.... well sort of.
Maddie in the front is always happy. Gramps has the puzzled look because he's wondering why I haven't brought him his chicken treat and Cooper (dashing blue sweater boy)...what can we say...he would rather sleep through all the noise.
To be a dog.

Eight Oregon Potters Association potters...

..have shown their work in the Governors Mansion (Mahonia Hall) for the last 10 years.
Each year I have been coordinating a showing of pottery by OPA members in the formal dining room cabinets. The pieces stay in the cabinets for one year. The pieces are then given back and a new group bring work for the following year. Yah Potters!!!!

The official staff show off the artists work when giving tours and having functions at the home. We've been told that this has been a highlight for many of the visitors.

Robin and John Gumaelius

are wonderful sculptors. We recently received 4 of their artworks with wheels...gotta love what they do. Genius.

We are IN!!!!!

We are finally moved into our new Gallery 2 space! The floor is a reclaimed racquetball court (see the red squares that use to be lines). When I asked my husband to "randomly" place the red squares I knew I was in trouble since he IS the sequential thinker in our family. My artist son Adam took over and did an amazing job. Random thinking....I love it.

Exciting news..

We're almost finished! We've been working over the summer to finish our new Gallery 2 space which will feature intimate shows, art gatherings and also where I can do more consulting on an appointment only basis. We've recycled, reclaimed and can't wait to show it off! I'll try to take more pictures as we move in.

The beginnings...

of the bra ball.
This week we decided to start making the bra ball into the actual ball. Hooking the bras together one by one we were amazed at how great it looked. A bit lumpy but extremely colorful! Tina was our master "Bra Ball Maker".
