I walked up there on my lunch today to putz around, and I have to say I was impressed. Very cool! So if you are in this neck of the woods, go check it out, because it is FREE and neat!

 

Heard about it via Tony Reynold's blog.

Tom,
Sorry I missed you today at the YC Gallery. My wife and I and our grandaughter went this morning as well and it is a great show. Quite an artsy day today. We also went to see the unveiling of Heather Johnson Beary's Lizard at the Prescott Library and tonight we'll be going to the opening of PFAA's new gallery show. Whew, it's tiring being so fortunate. Best to you.

That place was deserted when I showed up. Just the lady working the table. In the 1/2 hour I was there I didn't see another soul.

What show is going on at PFAA?

An artsy day indeed. :)

Oh how wonderful! The Japanese are so creative...I mean, I suppose all cultures have something, but they really are thoughtful about their creativity and use it as a calling card about what kind of person they are...I was mentioning this to a good friend yesterday, who's been to Japan and had the opinion that the Japanese are not a creative people. I just wanted to slap him silly...perhaps it was because he spent most of his time drunk and in kerioke bars?

Oh...and the lizard is too cool...although, I have to say for the last few days, it was covered with a sheet and kind of looked like a body under there...

Chickenbells - as you say, everybody is greative in their own way. Generally when i think of japanese, i think of sublety. Their current trend seems to be to throw everything in your face as brightly as possible, but anything that is older seems to carry with it a sublime sense of self that just niggles into your senses.

That's my view any way. :)
