Auburn WA's Downtown Sculpture Gallery

Francisco Salgado, NW Sculptor, large painted steel sculpture  in yellow entitled 'Jump' in Auburn, WA

Auburn is a great example of a city revitalizing the downtown core with art. Last week I headed up for an evening sculpture walk through town.  With 6 new sculptures to enjoy from the current show and several permanent installations it's a significant benefit for the community. See all the art here and view the video the committee put together with artists videos during installation. This video really showcase the art and the artist.  

Now if you'd be so kind to take a moment to VOTE for your favorite. The city plans to choose a piece to purchase at the end of this show.  Hey maybe it will be mine.  It looks pretty good there doesn't it?

Contrapposto will be in display for the next two years at Evergreen St. & 2nd in Lake Oswego. It's always such an honor to be included in this exhibition.  I enjoyed having the chance to interact with all the art enthusiasts at the opening.

CCC Outdoor Sculpture Show

'Anima Eterna' by Portland sculptor Francisco Salgado. Large scale, figurative blue metal sculpture.

Rick True who runs the scultpure program at Clackamas Community College is organizing his last outdoor show before he retires the next year. Having participated in previous years I was thrilled to be invited back again for this show.  

The sculpture I made for this occasion I've entitled 'Anima Eterna'. It is available for purchase for $4600 and would be a dramatic accent piece to a modern home interior or exterior.

The campus will be filled with sculpture from April 10th to June 15th. 

An artists’ reception featuring the Tuboh Butoh/Sheri Brown Dance Company will be held on Thursday, May 24, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. in the college commons outside the Community Center. The dance company will present “Opening/Processional/Divided by Zero” in two performances at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. They will continue to perform in various locations among the sculptures throughout the reception.

You don't need a ticket - just drive on out and take a picnic lunch. I promise it will be worth it. Some of my favorite sculptors will be there too.

A Weekend in Bellingham

The Big Rock Garden organized a gathering for the sculptors exhibiting this year at the park; Shirley Erickson, Thor Myhre, and myself. It was a treat to visit with the committee and fellow artists during our first evening in town. 

On Sunday, the weather cooperated and we were very lucky to enjoy the opening without raindrops on our head. The Big Rock Sculpture Garden attracts lots of fans during their opening Mother's Day weekend and we got to meet many of them including George Drake who founded the garden in 1981.

If you've been wondering about the yellow sculpture in front the studio it's visiting Bellingham for the next five months. See it loves its new home.

Special thanks to Jeni Cottrell and all the members of the committee for making us feel so welcomed in your town.

Invite to Big Rock Garden

After applying to this call I was thrilled to be invited to show not just one but three of my sculptures at the Big Rock Garden - Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit. They've asked for 'Jump', 'Anima', and 'Familia.' So at the end of the month I'm going to borrow a trailer and hit the road for Bellingham Washington. These pieces will be on display for about five months. So if you are heading North to Canada be sure to stop by it's a lovely park.
