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?

Sculture at the Oregon Country Fair

This year we went South to the Oregon Country Fair to explore the forest for arts, crafts and music in Veneta Oregon. Here are a few fun sculptural pieces I encountered in the fair. It was impressive to see how the artists incorporated nature into their sculpture.

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.
