A new artisan co-op, The Cupola Gallery, is emerging in Battle Ground. The co-op is seeking members to join its already robust base, with the eventual goal of opening a gallery. Current member artists include established painters, photographers and sculptors.
Another gallery in Clark County is a wonderful prospect, don’t you think?
I have been remiss to sooner blab about these two great events coming up.
Tomorrow, already, as you may have heard, is the Camas Farmer’s Market Farm to Table Gala with dinner prepared by chef Peter Echevario, using produce and ingredients from local farms. The event is Saturday, Sept. 6 at Farside Farms, 4510 NW McIntosh Rd, in Camas, and includes wine tasting and a multi-course dinner for $50. If you want to sneak in last minute on the goodness, email email@example.com and visit http://www.camasfarmersmarket.org/ for details.
On Sept. 19, at EB Hamilton Hall on the Historic Reserve, is the second annual Vancouver Food Co-op fall fundraiser, the Local Harvest Dinner and Auction. Chefs Anna Petruolo and Jodell Hinojosa will prepare a dinner feature locally farmed ingredients. Tickets are $50 through Brown Paper Tickets. If you want to support this event by putting a poster in your window, download it and tape it up.
The feasts are on-
IMHO, there are three perfect reasons to head out to First Friday tonight in Vancouver.
First, Leah Jackson, former gallery manager at Sixth Street Gallery, and current curator at Clark County Historical Museum will have her new gallery Angst up and running at 1015 Main Street. She knocked out the drop down ceiling of the former Christian Science Reading Room and opened the space up to its full height, discovering an amazing skylight. Leah is in the process of building the space out and filling it in with art, so come by and support her — Angst is a great new addition to Gallery Row.
And, just down the block, my good pal Steve Eichenberger has some of his incredible new sculptures at North Bank Artists Gallery. Wow, Steve, these are just beyond the beyond. Bravo!
Also, if you have a minute, check out Turtle Place tonight. Work is getting underway, and the mural is sweet.
PS: We WILL have the rest of the archives up momentarily! Sorry for any inconvenience.
OK, I need to be careful about mixing business with pleasure, but I definitely have to tell you this one thing.
While there was a plan to finish downtown Vancouver’s temporary sustainable park by the end of summer, turns out Turtle Place is just breaking ground this Friday. The mural is well underway, and Greg Conyne and Wendy Armstrong are in a Ridgefield barn finishing a sculpture made of recycled metal and glass, according to lawnchair guy’s blog, which is actually quite well written and informative.
Nutter Underground came on board last month, and will be at the “hatching” of Turtle Place Sept. 5 at 10:15 a.m., along with some local dignitaries. Come back around during First Friday at 5 p.m. and check out the progress.
