We miss working with her in person but we appreciate any and all communication.


Life as a Musical


Laying a Path


A Visit to the Stone Yard

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What has weight and gravity

 

a history more ancient

 

than our fleeting existence

 

polished smooth by eons of friction

 

something which does not disappear


Slaying Dragons


Gazing Into the Unknown


Upstairs/Downstairs

...meeting on the landing


You Can't Be It and See It


All you need is a cardboard box

Watching You Watching Me


Looking for children's books today we found 'The Tea Party in the Woods' by Akiko Miyakoshi.

The similarity to yesterdays 'Ancestors' is striking. They seem to be looking at each other.

Scrutinized by the Ancestors


This is what happens when we work together


Windows are the Eyes

The immense satisfaction of polishing the glass until it disappears

when the outside shines inside

the two become one


Emerging


Floyd is Back


 

After many months of isolation Floyd appeared today sitting across from the gallery.

We had our first visit six feet apart. Much laughing together and story telling, from him.

Constructing Space


Each Piece Makes the Whole


It's A Dog's Life

Shaping Light and Space


Liberating Whale

 

 

 

 

 

Today we took 'whale' off of its stretcher.

 

The stretcher resembles some kind of strange skeleton.

 

Seeing it leaning against the wall it became potential

 

for something other, a new form to inhabit.

Collaging Together on Our First Day Back


The Magic of Mirrors


                                                                     Looking at what's behind me in the collage gallery.

Simple fun is the best

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

water

floating balls

feet


A struggle to get through to open sky


 

 

No sky

but a path

and a place to sit


Collage in the Time of Corona

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During these past three months Eron Boyd has been

unusually prolific creating collages. It is this work

that we have chosen to be the reopening exhibit in the

Collage Gallery. It will be available to view as of this

Tuesday June 30.

 


Good News


Today we had our first meeting with everyone at the gallery to discuss when we will reopen.

It was decided that next Tuesday June 30 we will be our first day back.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you sometime soon.

If any of you would like to come at a time when you could be assured of having the space to yourself

we would be happy to be here at 11am for you.

Creating the Subject for a Painting


In the corner of the Genesis Gallery

Three Dimensional Collage


In the presence of green


Today we moved the plants from the east genesis gallery to the upstairs library.

In this different space each plant became revealed again

unique and exquisitely beautiful 

their energy surprising and overwhelming

quiet and contained.

They know how to be what they are.

 

Clarity


Cleaning Day


Today the sky was high, the wind was strong, the air was fresh.

 

It may not be possible to bring order to the world but we can clean and order our own environment.

 

The act of cleaning is physical it pulls us into our body and quiets the mind.

 

At the end of the day there is real satisfaction. This was today.

Heat Inside and Out


Trying to Keep the Appearance of Calm


Hard to Comprehend


puddles and clothespins

scissors and cups

holding together

cutting apart

as different as coffee and tea

reflecting choice
