Down & Up: On the nature of change and walls

What is the constant at AWE Gallery Annex?  Change.  As in art exhibits.  Today, I had the privilege of meeting Bonnie and  Gene Martz who spearheaded the March CLIR exhibit at AWE.

What’s CLIR you ask? Created by the University of California Berkeley Extension SF, CLIR (Center for Learning in Retirement) provides a venue for those in the Bay Area over 50 who enjoy new learning and social opportunities.  CLIR offers educational, cultural, social program.  For more info and to join:

To return to our story on change.  It’s close to 1PM and Alice Steele (photographer, collective member of AWE Gallery, and CLIR enthusiast) has joined Bonnie, Gene, and me.  The CLIR show has been struck; the walls are bare.  We quip what we have before us is a most minimal art.

As with change, the walls won’t be minimal for long.    From April 6 – 28, 2013, photographer extraordinaire, Roxanne Worthington presents Zaubermarchen/Tales of Magic. Opening reception:  Sunday, April 7, 2013  1pm – 4 pm.  Poetry reading:  Sunday, April 14, 2013 beginning at 2 PM. Check out the AWE Gallery Events for details.

A final comment on change.  While the main gallery at AWE always showcases the collective artists – Stacy Boorn, Alice Steele,Chris Kibre, Janet Stock, and Susan Black, you can stop in any Saturday or Sunday (noon – 5 PM) and glimpse new work by these  fine artists.  Yup, change is the constant.

P.S.  Hope to see you at a CLIR event — soon.
