I took a couple photos to share with you from the different events...but somehow I skipped a bunch of galleries we visited. I should have taken more! (not that this post needs to be any longer!)
The Archie Bray show at the Kolva Sullivan Gallery blew my mind once again! Every October they journey over from Helena, MT to share their ceramic mastery with Spokane. I pretty much wait all year for them. This time I got to chat up a few of the artists outside the gallery and then later at the Kolva after party...not to mention talking them into checking out Terrain down the street. (wonder what they thought of it?)
I ran into the lovely Chris Dreyer...blinded him and got the greatest cutie pie photo ever! Chris almost lost it over some wheat paste art outside the Kolva. It is rarer than you would expect here in Spokane. Wheat paste kinda has become a mantra for him...this eventually spawned a super amazing non wheat pasty idea of mine on Saturday. Something about a one night parking lot show...but shh - said too much already! (just wait a couple months...these things do take time)
I was impressed with the street art that popped up over the weekend. I saw quite a few instances including this nicely executed stop sign tree. You better stop at this one!!! Could Spokane finally be getting there?
I was delighted at the Riverspeak show to find John and Naaman's piece in the back. Here are the "Boys who like butterflies" themselves having at it. ♥
I also included a photo of a piece I happened to stumble upon by my new artist friend Darcy Drury.
Over on 2nd Ave. there is a building that serves as band practice space and artist working studios. They also have had some really great shows there - this month was one in particular. I missed my friend Cori as she ran home to change...but I am slightly infatuated with the work she had. The dress and the drain one in the center would look marvelous on my new walls!!!
MAC to families that attended I <3 Art. The museum was packed full of kids running around (having a blast) doing art projects with their parents. They even had me do the white board for the event....it turned out really cute!
The hour long talk was recorded if you missed it and would like to catch up:
Thank you for sticking out to the end of this insanely long post....I wish you a beautiful week with an equally magical weekend as it is approaching fast.
