The Bemis Art Committee will be jurying for the Spring Show in just a few days. The show dates are set:
Day One: Saturday, March 22nd from 12-8 pm.
Day Two: Sunday, March 23rd from 12-6 pm.
Studio 305 will be open and we’ve arranged to host two acoustic music performances each day as studio activities. We’ll do an update once we have the schedule. Our own Camelia Jade is once again the music curator, and she is arranging wandering bards for the hallways and scheduling individual performances in select studios throughout the building.

This fall show was a different style than most of the previous shows. Due to the availability of some key Art Committee members the show was conducted with an invitational process rather than a juried one. The past participants of juried shows were contacted on an individual basis and invited to show along with the residents in a more laid back show. In studio #305 we mounted the walls with our familiar group, and extended it out into the hallway for the two-day exhibit on October 26th and 27th.
Bob Antone also created another in-studio activity with wood carving demos and more drum-making. It made for an interesting and very engaged conversation during the show.

Dancing Rongorongo Characters - J. Troy Lazenby
Sunday art shows are a viewing pleasure, for artists and patrons alike. The second day of the Bemis Spring Show saw over 300 more visitors, bringing attendance to the 900 mark.
Troy and Marly Lazenby are pictured above, with a painting of alphabetical characters from the small santiago artifact. Rongorongo is among the rarest of written languages, with only 26 documented artifacts. All of the remaining examples are carved into wood, and one of these recently visited the Seattle area with the fabulous paintings of Paul Gauguin, “Gauguin and Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise” which was shown at the Seattle Art Museum. This painting, as well as a series of original limited edition prints, were inspired by a recent trip to Easter Island.
