ART AUCTION: Omnipresent Art Chair

The goal of these drip sculptures is to emphasize the artistic qualities of the overlooked. Like the homeless that sit in our streets, the appliances, furniture and utensils become so routine that they become transparent. The artistic triumphs become overlooked and the story is lost. Next time you turn on your lamp, marvel at the […]

Art Auction during Oct. TOTC

Untitled by Justin Barrow circa 2000 Send your doodles to!

A Balanced Composition

Over time, they become as visible as a recently cleaned window, as transparent as a pane of glass and as important as a roadside dandelion. Their participation in our community is rarely accepted, yet they frequent our village […]

Village Art Show: Bakerloo Salon

The seed of an artistic culture has been pushed deep into the sandy soil of our village by the sea. Its shell has gently broken open and has allowed a foundation to slowly grow. Roots expanded as the soil became accepting and nourishing. In the two years since that optimistic planting, our village has become […]
