It was a good year.

It was a good year.

We began our year focusing on studio visits and invited 
our clients to join us.

We loved sharing the personal side of our artists
Seeing the vision first hand, hearing new ideas while 
listening to the artists inspirations.

We took a trip to Seattle to visit Kristin Nelson 
in her ceramic studio.

 Portland to visit Ceramic artist Tom Orr

Katherine Mead in Lake Oswego

We discovered new artists!
Zach Hixson, from McMinnville

We checked out the materials and tools

In May 2014, we mourned the loss of our 
good friend/Artist Robert Hess

We know that he stands with us as move sculpture 
into our downtown.

He was an inspiration, our mentor and our friend.

Throughout the year, we worked with businesses 
who believed that having art in their space 
"Is a must" and not just an extra.

We visited clients homes and gave them 
many choices to choose from.

In the Spring...
We had a Pop-Up event and it was quite the 
undertaking...starting with a vacant space, 
we transformed it into an "art happening"


Throughout the year, we invited clients to our "appointment" Gallery where I was able to share the latest work by our artists.

We enjoyed having gatherings with our artists.

We have continued our partnership with Willamette 
University's Hallie Ford Museum of Art Museum Store
