Just Back

If anyone checked the calendar out, there was an entry 'Inspiration Week'. That would be when you go and find some, and hopefully bring some back. Refueling one's creative passion is part of the cycle and there are many ways to do so. We brought back some amazing new gemstone material, incredible views that wait to be rendered, and that momentum you get when you've been deeply moved. More to come in the pages ahead.

Lets Get InterActive

MakeyourMark02.jpg

Every show we have interactive art projects to get you in the art mood too. We feel like the fun of art should not be hoarded just for those who call ourselves artists as it is in us all. If you have been up to the gallery lately, you know we have had our grafitti canvas out and most of you have left all sorts of signatures, phrases, and doodles on that. We have a rock garden that folks have reorganized and played in like a sand box for grown ups (and the kids dig it too). We even have a questionaire out for folks to leave their thoughts if they're more inclined to words as opposed to images. For the duration of the year, we will leave this big black canvas out for folks to leave their marks on. There are a few already in the picture and more as I write this. I hope that it will be as populated with your thoughts, doodles, and signatures as the small canvas or more by the time the year has passed,  

It's incredible how many people I have spoken with during the course of the summer are getting back into painting, learning new art skills, looking for inspiration, and hope to dance soon with their muse. It's so cool how going to art galleries and museums, anywhere you can find the creative spirit at play, fires the creative engine. The unofficial title to the Grafitti Canvas was 'We Are All In This Together', as that was the prominant phrase at the top of the piece. We actually are, though. We help each other get into the art and we stand on each other's shoulders when it comes to lessons and learning. Enjoy your art, create, and hope to see you in the Ozone soon to Make Your Mark here too.

The warmer it gets, off go the layers! Having comfortable style is important so why not wrap yourself in wearable art that is functional as well as sensationally cool. Leslie Palotas hand dyes each individual piece creating waves, octopus and other graphic renderings in fabric. Because she uses awesome companies like Xylem in Eugene for sourcing of the cuts, she makes stylish works of art to wear like Bolero Jackets and Yoga Pants. Leslie has just dropped off a new haul of work, come find the perfect piece for you.�

2016-04-27�- Variations on a Theme

For some reason I always love wearing chokers during the summer. Maybe it's the necklines, maybe it's that we're more active so we want jewelry that isn't dangling too much. I also notice that if my choker is too high, it leaves my chest rather bare. So to kill a couple of birds with one stone, I cooked up a choker that drops down to the length of a regular pendant. WIN! I've been playing with various lengths of drop and different stones, come in and see the variations on the theme.�
