New Work at SOFA! … And Other News ….

Hello!  It’s been awhile!

We have had an exciting September and October (we hope you did, too!) and are currently preparing to travel to Chicago, one of our favorite cities, for the annual SOFA show at the Navy Pier, November 2 – 4.

We’re excited to introduce our Carved Head series, inspired by sand patterns and arial views of South Africa (2008).  If you are interested in learning more about this evolution in our work, visit our Writing section under Portfolio on our home page.

We’ll be back in a couple of weeks with pictures of “Deanna’s Amulet,” and its installation.  Commissioned for the new PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center, “Deanna’s Amulet” honors Deanna J. Anderson, one of the many victims of cancer in the islands.  Her life and her passing inspired Charles Anderson, along with others, to create this incredible new (and only) hospital facility on San Juan Island.  We will be installing this piece in the entry to the Cancer Care Center on November 7 & 8. The ribbon cutting ceremony and open house will be on Saturday November 17 with first patients on Monday November 26th.

Stay tuned!

BTW, the “High Fiber Diet” exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum is not to be missed and Pratt Fine Arts Center’s Holiday sale (we buy more cool, crafted stuff for us than as gifts!) opens Saturday, November 17.  We highly recommend the opening night celebration, Nov. 16, for those of you who want first choice.  Hope to see you there!
