My Pedestal. Had originally planned to scatter the
pebbles around the venue, as I normally do
on the beach, but thought better of it when I arrived.
|A detail of my favorite pebble in the collection - my first attempt|
at a free-form tree. Not half bad, if I do say so myself (and shouldn't). Several
show attendees mentioned it as their favorite as well, so the feeling must be mutual.
|Detail of the arrangement with a cairn in the back.|
|While many of these will be placed on a local beach as part of the|
project, and some will be for sale on etsy, the pink embroidered "Namaste"
pebble will stay with me to help me remember Radhika.
|"Lost & Found" a found beach object assembly by Roxy Heinz.|
My favorite piece in the show hands down.

|"Don't Look Back-Transition" by India Davis.|
|"sometimes it's all too much" by Dave Fass|
(Please don't miss the giraffe on the side...)
|Dave's placard noted that this was what runs through his brain|
on a daily basis. Me, too, Dave. Me, too.
|Well.. maybe I don't always see giant squids when I close my eyes, but close, enough.|
|"One Month Ride" by Sykkel Spruce. Spray Paint and Bike Parts|
on Canvas. Bad photo. Amazing Artwork.
|"Entombment" by Angela Van Lier. Angela says, "I began this |
project with an interest in symbiotic relationships. For 29 days,
I would take a walk and not return until I found a honey bee
amongst my travels. The found bee would be recorded and then
encased in its own proper tomb of beeswax. This piece deals
with the concept of Colony Collapse Disorder, a phenomenon
where it is unknown exactly why many beehives around the
world are disappearing at an alarming rate. Scientists have
many possible theories but if we aren't able to figure out the
exact reason soon, our food supply is in direct effect."
|Detail of "Entombment". Simply stunning.|
|"Containers" by Blind Art Gallery|
|"Containers" detail. Yes, "Blind Art Gallery" means exactly what you|
think it does. As a potter, myself, I am left speechless.
|My new acquaintances, Sergio and Ant Dakini of AntiQuark |
performing live in front of their videos. Seriously great stuff.
Sorry about the Flash going off during this photo, Sergio. I didn't mean to.
|Yeah, this is dark, but I love how the videos add color.|
|There were lots of cool young people in cool clothes with cool hair and a dude that looked sorta like Mel Gibson, but I didn't hold that against him. Space 4 Art is a totally cool space. If I lived any closer, I'd consider having a studio there.|
