Urban Art in Oly
When Ruby Re-Usable isn’t busy teaching the art of recycling or in the studio doing her upcycled art thing, she is wandering around with the digital camera her generous friend Jan gave her, admiring the non-commissioned public art of Oly (and now posting those pics on flickr), which is how she met Jason Taellious, aka enpen. Jason is presenting about urban art for the Olympia Arts Commission Community Round Table series this Monday, March 3, 4 pm – 5 pm at the Olympia Public Library. Ruby will be there; more info HERE.
Our favorite Seattle art car artist, Kelly Lyles, sent us this amusing YouTube about cartist/performance artist Gene Pool. She also sent this fun “What is Art” vid. AND she sent a link to Dick and Jane’s Spot, a place worth checking out next time you are in Ellensburg, WA.
The Volcano’s art critic Alec Clayton reviewed an art show that included collages made from repurposed materials; sounded intriguing but we never did make it to Tacoma. In Eugene, Oregon, Ruby the Resourceress (NOT to be confused with Ruby Re-Usable) now has a
rant recycled art blog: Yes! I am revolting
Hi. Your link to “Leave No Plastic Behind” is to the Seattle Times, yet you say the story’s in the Everett Herald.
Hey Regina, I am thrilled that you are leaving a message on my humble blog! The story is from the Oregonian (note the byline and location line: By Erin Hoover Barnett The Oregonian PORTLAND), but the link is from the Seattle Times… don’t ask me why…I imagine the Seattle Times picked up the Oregonian story, and since it was written by an Oregonian reporter, I figured I would give them credit!
I mentioned the Everett Herald because of Sarah Jackson’s blog, Eco Geek (which I correctly identified as in the Everett Herald).
THANKS for checking out my blog, I read yours every chance I get, and also your column on-line, too.
Since I live in Olympia, I do not subscribe to the P-I, but I do read the print version of The Olympian every morning, I love newspapers and hope they never go away… the HBO series, The Wire, made me feel guilty for some how not supporting the press MORE, so I am sending all the love I can for now, love, etc Ruby
