This is my adventure into creating an art installation for the Art in Rural Storefronts project sponsored by The Arts Center of Corvallis. ARS serves regional audiences in Linn and Benton Counties by bringing innovative, thought- provoking art projects to rural communities that lack spaces dedicated to contemporary/non-commercial art. Three artists were chosen to participate. The project is funded in part by the Oregon Arts Commission.
I’ve had some struggles with the piece last week. Part of my problem was trying to figure out the best hanging system for the fish. Solution: measure and drill holes into a wood strip and use light weight fishing line to hang squares. This will make adding additional rows a snap…. well, in theory!
Final part to complete and hang tonight: the tail section!
Then I can move forward on rows 2 & 3, then 4&5.
Thanks for taking a look!
