About the space:
Melanie Germond and Pete Goldlust and their two sons relocated from the southwest to Eugene in 2016. They have been married since 1996 and have been working together on creative projects for over 30 years. These have covered a wide variety of media: painted murals, metalwork, terrazzo, concrete, window glass treatments, music/sound composition and performance, graphic design, and sculptural installations with recycled plastics, textiles and other materials.
Our recent work has focused on public art projects. Over the past ten years, we have completed 25+ public art commissions. We’ve recently started working on our first permanent public art projects here in Eugene— installations at Echo Hollow Pool and Campbell Community Center.
Pete received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2001. Since then, he has exhibited internationally, with solo shows in Chicago and Los Angeles. His work has been featured in publications ranging from Art in America to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!, and from Elle Belgium to Raising Arizona Kids.
Melanie received her Masters degree in Early Music Performance from Longy School of Music in 1998. She has recorded and performed works ranging from the medieval through the contemporary, touring extensively, and earning awards in the U.S. and Europe. Melanie has also worked as a graphic designer for 20 years, producing visual materials for classical music organizations throughout the country.
Melanie and Pete have been actively involved in building educational and arts opportunities for kids for many years. In Eugene, we’ve been involved with the nonprofit ArtCity in different capacities. We currently work together to volunteer-teach art for kids in grades 4-8 at Ridgeline Montessori Public Charter School in Eugene.
