I'm trying.

I'm always keepin' it real in the studio, even to the extent of posing a frosty brew on my slick table. I'm slowly refining my support making technique. Viva cheap trigger-clamps from Harbor Freight!

It's always nice to speed up the craft part to get to the art. Yes, arts and crafts!

Look forward to our new show coming up at Gallery 114 in February, where you'll barely recognize some of this work ...

show prep

the gang gathered tonight to get ready for our exhibition that opens friday night. the warehouse we are in is a wonderful building in the nw industrial area of portland. close enough to be convenient (just a couple blocks west of montgomery park) but far enough to be outside of the northwest congestion.

no art hanging would be complete without a few beers. kurt gets serious about the alignment of kate's paintings.

kurt, kirsten, and steff collaborate on the exact positioning of steff's small photograph.

kurt gives the go-ahead to kate and steff.

it has turned out to be a very handsome show, in a terrific setting. i can't wait to see the tree lit up and the steam trains running on friday night. last year an estimated 500 people attended the event, and we may top that this year. it should be a lot of fun.
the details of the show are:
5:30-8:00 friday night, december 3rd, at the Staver Locomotive warehouse at 2537 nw 29th. there will be live music, small scale steam trains running all over the warehouse, a raffle, and our art.
