Old SchoolHouse Art Gallery
You will have noticed by now that a structure is being erected on the SchoolHouse Art Gallery lawn. A proposal was made to the Gallery by Peter Schmidt and Noba Anderson and was accepted for this Outdoor Spiral Architectural Installation. This installation will be in place for the months of August and September. To quote from the artists/builders' proposal: "Cortes is rich in architectural creativity in private spaces that use found and beautiful materials. However, we have yet to create a truly public space of beauty, both in form and function. By offering this spiral shell on the SchoolHouse Gallery field, we want to offer inspiration for collective community visioning of what could be in our community public spaces." Installation art on a grand scale -- an exciting new venture for the Gallery.....stay tuned for more info on the unveiling of this structure.
