Visual Arts Week and beyond!

Darryl Evans - "Free Your Soles"

Free Your Soles imageAn installation of more than 1,000 shoes "freed" by our community. An abundance of both well-worn and pristine footwear will emerge from a tree at the intersection of 5th Ave. and Oak Street like low-hanging, wearable fruit. The changing social and physical environment at the tree’s urban location, along with the shoes’ origins and ultimate fate, are some of the elements shaping the meaning and message of Free Your Soles. A time lapse photographic record of the month-long evolution of the installation will be part of this artworks conclusion. At deinstallation, remaining shoes will be donated as appropriate, recycled if unusable, or reused in the artist’s next iteration of the work.

Tracy Sydor - "Miss Maple"

Miss MapleA character-based sculptural encounter appearing first at the Velvet Edge Boutique during Visual Arts Week. Miss Maple is born from Sydor’s childhood experience of a 1st grade teacher who stepped forward as a selfless protective presence. This memory has expanded into a figure of martyrdom and unquestioning protection within the artist’s personal mythology. Miss Maple will also inhabit the Forest of Tea and other locations during a portion of the August exhibition.

Josh Sands BSA

A series of artworks in the form of imagined transit maps located along the walkways from Smith Family Bookstore on Willamette Street to the intersection of 5th Ave. and Pearl Street. Physically produced as professional signage, Sand’s maps may offer our current location in relation to water resources, possible personal moods and psychological status, our current level of distraction verses interaction and more.
