Flashback to the the Milwaukee Art Museum who helped realize the Wagon Stations. They were on exhibit for a year in the Museum's extention built by Santiago Calatrava (back when it was brand new) – before being shipped to A-Z West. Thank you Milwaukee Art Museum! (so many really great artists and artist-run spaces in Milwaukee too)
Desert truck at the Oregon Coast (never imagined we would miss the heat! Heading inland today…)
Pretty much my all time favorite bathing situation – at Salmon Creek Farm
Waking up in Cedar cabin at Salmon Creek Farm – so many new developments since our last trip here… Thank you @fritzhaeg_salmoncreekfarm for another thought provoking visit – and for the great dinnertime conversations!
Another A-Z West Studio weaving – I'm so into these weird tufted pieces by @lourolf ! ⠀
Spent all week getting the truck ready (new awning, steam-cleaned the carpeted bed-liner, washed everything inside and out, new wipers) and now we are finally on the road getting it dusty and dirty all over again 🖤.
Hot, dry, dusty – but deeply enjoying the supreme solitude with everything here closed down for the summer. Having much needed alone time pretty much outweighs any of the negatives.
A new batch of A-Z West studio weavings are headed to the Whitney Museum shop including this one by @elenadaojingyu . The studio weavings help support our collective resources at A-Z West and generate income for artists local to the High Desert, where employment and means of financial support are limited.⠀⠀
Repost of an image by @machine_in_hand showing progress on her summer winter pattern here in the weaving studio this week – I'm such a fan of this large scale block pattern!
Another ridiculous sunset – but when it's a humid 104 all day it's hard to stay inside when the sun finally takes a break.
