Making Your Mark in 17


As promised, here's the current view of the Make Your Mark canvas. We always have an interactive art project and these 'grafitti' canvases seem to be a crowd favorite. If you scroll down the blog posts, you'll see the canvas new, with just a few marks on it. That was only a few months ago and the canvas is pretty full of great doodles, notes, and art. Some folks obviously took some time with this and we're so appreciative that you'd be a part of the art at the Ozone. If you haven't had a chance to make your mark yet, we'll continue decorating this one through our ReNEW, ReCLAIM, ReMIND show Feb-April. Come up and Make Your Mark, be a Part of the ART.

Snow Day!


Snow days here in Newport are always historic feeling. One can't shake the feeling of novelty walking the beach and leaving footprints in snow. Dramatic contrasts are formed between the glowing white snow, the dark, local rocks, and the variable hues of the sky and sea. It takes the coastal breathtaking beauty to a new level. Of course these conditions demand adventuring out on the beaches and headlands. After my hike on a very icy Yaquina Head, I couldn't resist the temptation to go up to Moolack and poke around the gravel beds. In the picture, you can see the agatized clam belly and a couple of spiral shell fossils I found. The miocene era fossils are my favorite 'ground scores' and it was surreal to find them amid little snow drifts. Check out the Daily Visions  page to see more pictures from the Snow Day including a whole album coming soon.

2016-04-27�- Hot Art Clothes!


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.�
