This is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting art galleries I’ve been in – ever!  While I was drawn to pretty much everything, I was most impressed with the works of Carole A. Feuerman and Anthony James (descriptions below).

Carole A. Feuerman

CAROLE A FEUERMAN

Carole A. Feuerman was born in 1945 and is an American sculptor and artist working in hyperrealism. Feuerman utilizes a variety of media including resin, marble, and bronze. She attended Hofstra University, Temple University, and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City to begin her career as an illustrator, creating album covers for Alice Cooper and the Rolling Stones, to name a few. She has been included in exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery; and Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Italy.

Anthony James

ANTHONY JAMES

Anthony James is a British/American artist based in Los Angeles, known for his monumental and experiential sculptures and installations. James was born in England in 1974. He studied in London at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and graduated with a degree in fine art painting. His work gestures towards the theatricality of minimalism and formalism. There is a focus on materiality, alchemy, and a deep respect for light and space.

Also a performance artist, he is famous for setting fire to a Ferrari in a birch forest and entombing the ravaged car and trees in an installation called (2008). His practice incorporates a variety of industrial objects, steel vitrines, aluminum sculptures, detritus, and wall-mounted installations, his use of vitrines drawing comparisons to Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons.

There was also a room with photographs of many of my Palm Springs acquaintances.  Only the most glamorous ones of course!

I don’t know this couple but I admire their bold statement of not being photographed by the pool.

QUAINT – WINSOME – WILD

I always thought it would be great fun and somewhat adventurous to live on a houseboatafter knowing someone who did.  Then I decided it might be even better to live on a tugboat in the forest across from a lake.  Something like this would do.

Driving Above Christina Lake, British Columbia

Old fashioned fun

We like to keep on truckin

child size vanilla

Really good borscht at The Borscht Bowl in Grand Forks, B.C.

Really good Thai at Benja in Keremeos, B.C.  Good local fruit too.

 

 

Yes, we saw a big black bear close to the road.  Too close for comfort actually.

Then a curious moose we call a cow

Dogs just want to have FUN. And they know how to keep COOL on a HOT day.
