"Tidal Chamber" Washed to New Shores

My recently completed installation, "Tidal Chamber" has fetched up on two new beaches.

I placed one half of the completed assemblage in the entryway of the Discovery Museum - part of the World Forestry Center, near the Portland Zoo. The large kelp, several horseshoe crabs and many, many barnacles round out the piece. Thank-you to the WFC for giving Tidal Chamber a new home in this lovely forest setting. There is no charge to enter the lobby and see my piece, and a $5 charge to see the rest of the exhibits.

The other half of the work has been placed in a beautiful building in Olympia Washington. The Department of Ecology houses many fine works by regional artists in its very modern and light-filled spaces. "Tidal Chamber 11" has found a perfect spot among the cobbles of a long dry riverbed/beach that runs through the middle of the grand building's atrium area. Thank you to Jeffree Stewart for the invitation to show my work with all the other accomplished artists.
