David Galchutt. David has lived in Oregon for almost a year and we went during Brookings most exciting whole town event "The Azalea Festival". Last year David won a few ribbons for his art entries and we were anxious to see what he would enter in the show this year.
For my Mandala friends, I was mesmerized by these Mandalas at the San Fransisco airport by artist Eric Staller at our first stop. The installation is called "Spirogyrate". Every few minutes the 7' the circles slowly move and the colors change. Pretty cool...and you can walk on them!
We ended up renting a car in Eureka CA and began our 2 hour trip to David's. A section of town in Eureka is filled with Victorian Mansions. This Carson Mansion is know as the most grand Victorian home in the USA!
It is a club now but you can walk the grounds and appreciate the incredible architecture.
The next few days we spent enjoying the beautiful coast line of Oregon. So different from New England. Everything is wild and wonderful.
Below are two of my favorite pictures from the coast.
We traveled from Brookings to Brandon, an arty little town on the
I especially liked "Washed Ashore" workshop and Gallery "Art to
save the sea". Here is a huge fish made of recycled pieces!
Bill and I are nature treasure seekers and we came home with a few lovely rocks we had found on the beaches.
I end with a Mandala sort of arrangement.
Oregon rocks! Hope to go back sometime. But next time when it's just a tad warmer. May was a bit too chilly for me.
