A New Place for Sculpture

image

Last night, I went to Bellingham,  to attend the preview party at the newest  gallery space dedicated to showing regional sculpture.

Located a few doors down, from the red brick building housing the Whatcom Museum, this simple, clean and airy light filled space with soaring ceilings is now home to Sculpture Northwest Gallery. This space, located in old town Bellingham on Prospect Street, is a gorgeous space to view the many forms and shapes of sculpture presented in this exhibition.

This inaugural exhibition Regional Stone, Regional Sculptors opens on June 5 and runs until August 16, 2015.
This exhibition shows a variety of both stone and techniques from typical stones as basalt, limestone, marble and alabaster to the more unusual named stones as Rhyyolite, Mudstone and Chlorite. There was a bit of steel and even glass used as parts of a melange of media in a few works.

This show, well worth the drive to Bellingham, has a few familiar artists, Tom Small, Bruce Haslett, Bill Wessinger, Tracy Powell and Al Sieradski. Many unknown to me, but on the whole, the quality of the work is fabulous.

Enjoy the work and visit their site Sculpturenorthwest.org

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.
