The Changing

wpid-20150709_132957.jpgThursday was  the day the gallery got rehung. Opening a new show this weekend The Horse  with Jaime Ellsworth, paintings and Barbara Duzan, bronze. The gallery is transformed from one look to another, thought it might be fun to share a before and after.wpid-20150709_132939.jpg

Even after 30 years of hanging shows, I still need to think, stew and even dream about how these shows will look. So here are the paintings, kinda in place on the floor.


Now you ask, Where are the bronzes ? Thankfully the gallery has spaces down the hall, to store artworks, sculptures, glass and other items necessary for running a gallery.

The Argyle Avenue window looks great with Barbara’s large bronze Ponies, Zeus looking out the window  as the beaded deer looks on!


Hope to see you at the show, Best

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.
