Loading the Walls
Wednesday morning a small group from the Merry Inksters went to Philomath to hang a print exhibit inside Gathering Together Farm. The business isn’t open yet for the season, but they are having 3 big dinners at their restaurant around Valentine’s Day. The 6 artists exhibiting are Carol Chapel, Debby Sundbaum Sommers, Julia Lont, Victoria Martinez, Sally Oviat and me. The below image is of Carol & Debby hanging Julia Lont’s letterpress work. Sally’s beautiful letterpress poem is resting by Debby’s head.
There is one long yellow wall and part of the blue wall to hang work on. The sloped counter top is normally filled with fresh veggies, but most of the root crop and local wines had to be moved to gain wall access. My dogs took up residence starting on the blue wall and spread into Carol Chapel and Victoria Martinez. The photos progress down the long wall.
Victoria’s mandala block prints in the center.
Julia Lont’s Bluebird, Carol Chapel’s frog and the large monotype by Debby Sundbaum- Sommers (3 color separation).
Julia Lont’s letterpress grouping. Sorry about the glare, I just couldn’t get in a good spot.
I wish I had taken a close up of Carol Chapel’s Redtail Hawk. It’s wonderful! Since I didn’t please visit her website here.

Me and my pooches. To see the dogs please check my website here.
We moved pretty quickly to get out of there since the river was rising. I bet the full parking will be flooded by this evening!
Gathering Together Farm will officially open at the beginning of March. The artwork will remain up until early April. Carol Chapel also designed and created the GTF sign in the top image.
