Winter is Gone and SPRING is ……

lomomagnoiliasMy daffodils are blooming and so is the white star magnolia. After a winter of travel, it’s time to emerge from hibernation and reopen WaterWorks Gallery.

Will say this about my time away from the Northwest, I have met some wonderful people in Cuba, and Florida this year. Great times spent doing some photography in Cuba, seeing my 91 year old tennis playing Dad [Hi Nathan, love ya!] and ballroom dancing in Florida with a few newly found friends. There are photos from Cuba and Florida. Pretty fun. [Copy & paste]

While in Florida I visited the amazing new Perez Art Museum Miami, contemporary space with fabulous art collection. Vertical gardening, some pretty edgy work. I spent 3 hours there. Really soul filling. Especially this commissioned work by Hew Locke, For those in Peril of the Sea, 2011, pictured above. Nice write up on this artist and his work in Art News.

Please let me know if you enjoy my blog and I will try to post something weekly.

Gallery opens  April 16…Kind Regards




About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
