You are invited to attend.

A Cast of Many


A show happens in a gallery and a gallery takes daily care and management.

The behind the scenes actors are essential. 

When a show is in process everyone does extra time.

We are such a  good team at the gallery that it is easy to take it for granted just how smoothly we all step up

but this is why the atmosphere of the gallery can be so enjoyed by visitors.

Sincere thanks to Eron Boyd, Mark Tai, Ed Drass and Cathy Stilo.

It would take many words to describe all that you do.

Building a Show

Building a show;-  ideas born in another time and place enter into the now.

The space of the gallery has its own nature and proportions and ideas must reshape to accommodate factual reality. This is not a concession but an opportunity for something unexpected to be revealed. We created a form to support an idea and that form took up occupation in the space in a way that could not have been imagined before. If we become rigidly tied to our ideas we can not recognize these gifts and will miss the possibility to grow creatively.

After all is not creativity the ability to continually improvise with our surroundings and circumstances?


This show is a collaboration between the works of  Gustavo Jabbaz and Joachim Oepkes photographers, Lysias Harris builder designer, Manny Parmar print installer, Sae Kimura mixed media artist and assistant to every possible task invented by deborah harris, her impulsive and erratic cohort and curator.

A Delicate Respose

'Leave your face on the sidewalk'

That was the old message.

Now we have our faces back.

May the sun smile upon you

as you also smile upon others.

A Perfect Winter Day

Two sides of the same coin

Paul Gauguin

Collage by deborah harris                             Collage by Sae Kimura

Yesterday Sae and I (deborah) took on the challenge to interpret the Gauguin painting in collage. We sat at the same table but did not see each others work til we were finished.

Surprisingly each of us had focused on

opposite aspects of the painting, background and foreground.  We were curious to see how they merged.  The results are shared here.


Mysteriously Compelling

Broken but mending

we demand so much from our bodies in all that we do

expecting they will follow our command

but sometimes they rebel and declare themselves wounded

we are surprised to find ourselves embraced by limitation

and the need to obey.

Holding on to Something

Happy Valentine's Day!
