I have three artworks in this group show at AWOL Gallery.
8th Annual & Original Square Foot Show (Aug. 20 - Sept. 5, 2010)
Gala: August 20, 7pm ($20), Opening Reception: August 21, 7pm (Free)

Be the first to see the show at the Gala reception or stand in line (that’s right, this is one of only a few shows which creates a line up on opening night) and experience the artist’s reception, which attracted close to 1000 people at last year’s event. The shows appeal is in the collective creative energy of having hundreds of local, national, and international artists in all media showcasing their work in a central location. Square Foot brings together artists from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines and career levels. Every artwork is 12” X 12” (24cm X 24 cm) and every artwork is offered at $225 regardless of artist and media. It provides the established artist a distinctive group show opportunity and is also a venue for emerging artists to have their work discovered by galleries and collectors alike.

    The dream – a time for the soul to move as a spirit or breath of wind - fly over the treetops and even move mountains.

    The Lavvu is a traditional tent still use them today at festivals, and sometimes for camping.

    Title: The Blinded remembers Beaivi by Mervi Salo
    Show: AWOL Gallery (Aug. 20 - Sept. 5, 2010)

    Beaivi (the Sun) has great importance in the arctic. Stories about the children descended from the sons of the Sun became known through the epic song chant called Beaivebártni soagnomátki Jiehtanasaid máilmmis.
