I have to apologize from the outset for the pictures I’m posting. My camera doesn’t do the best job. Really, when it comes to art, even if the photos are stunning, there’s nothing like seeing it in person, up close and personal, wherein you can walk all the way around the 3-dimensional pieces and view the 2-dimensional pieces from different distances.

The current major exhibit is called Evolution, “a cross-generational collection of art created by female artists aged 2 to 79.”

Oops! Trying to post a pic and lost the internet connection for a minute. Erik, Heidi, and I are talking to Cynthia French, Executive Director of GRAA, discussing various concepts for performance art, like getting together periodically to do our thing (whatever that might be) in the window of GRAA.

Here are a few pieces from the Evolution exhibit. Once again, I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. (Come see the exhibit!)

Suddenly, a weird noise came from the back of the building. We’re not terribly concerned. Michelle Miller, Assistant Director of GRAA has joined us in conversation. We’re brainstorming ideas for touring arts groups for a grant project.

The Evolution show is much larger than what I’ve shown in this post, so if you haven’t seen the exhibit yet, come on down and check it out.
