2014 Biennial Members Show Opening Reception

Sunday, October 26, 2014 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

The 47 talented individuals selected for the 2014 Biennial Members Exhibition rouse one’s curiosity about the artists’ vantage point, in a manner quite different from our other exhibitions. Perhaps it’s because they come from a broader spectrum of backgrounds and media. Take Neuroscientist Peter Snyder who meditates on the eye and retina as a direct window to the brain—in Manzanita burl, leather, and cold-formed steel. Artist Cynthia Eid creates fluid-looking metal pieces inspired by the natural forms she observes while meandering through her garden, the woods, and the water’s edge.

Join us for our Spooky read-a-thon throughout the day until 5 p.m. while we have some fun scaring you and preparing you for All Hallows Eve.  We are looking for folks to stop by anytime during the day, or even stay the entire day and hear some stories and poems that will curl your toes.  Feel free to bring a treat while you spend your time listening.  Listening to poetry and ghost stories read out loud is an entirely different experience than reading them to oneself in the dark.
