September 2013 Gallery Without WallsFollow Your Art! through the streets of downtown Lake Oswego. The Arts Council of Lake Oswego, in partnership with the City of Lake Oswego, is pleased to introduce the newest sculptures in our rotating Gallery Without Walls exhibition—works that will delight and enrich our community for the next two years. The new sculptures celebrate imagination and innovation, and encourage economic vitality in our downtown district. Over sixty rotating and permanent sculptures are included in the Gallery Without Walls. The rotating sculptures are on-loan from artists of national and international acclaim for a two year period, and are for sale. The loaned artwork is chosen by a volunteer selection committee. They carefully balance the exhibit to include a wide variety of subjects, forms and materials. Contact the Arts Council at 503.675.3738 for information on custom docent-led tours for all ages, to request a free self-guided Walking Tour brochure, or to purchase art in the exhibit.2nd Street3rd Street5th Street4th StreetB Avenue A Avenue Oswego Lake City Hall Fire Station Evergreen R o a d 1st StreetState Street/ HWY 43Lake View Village Lower Millennium Plaza Sundeleaf Plaza Millennium Plaza Park Note: map not to scale N 520 1st Street PO Box 369 Lake Oswego, OR 97034 503.675.3738 www.artscouncillo.org New sculptures 4 2 1 8 7 6 13 12 10 5 14 3 9 15 New kinetic sculptures 11 Downtown Lake Oswego1Outcropping Anew David Turner “Addressing quandaries of working, resting, reasoning and the unknown.” cedar, found stones • $7,500 rockfarmstudio.com 2 Intention Pasha Stinson “Is it better to break or bend when faced with the storms of life?” granite • $25,000 pashasculptor.com Sponsored by Dr. Paul L.

New to this year’s Gallery Without Walls are four kinetic sculptures. Kinetic art moves by means of a motor, the wind or the interactive engagement of the viewer. By nature this art is active, dynamic, and vibrant. Sunflower, by Patricia Vader, and Salacia, by Jen Ellsworth, derive their movement from the wind. The cattails in Salacia, dance gently in the breeze, while Sunflower employs multiple spinning wheels that rotate vigorously, like a pinwheel. Mutatio, by Ben Dye, and MerKaBa Dura, by Joe Burleigh, require physical interaction with the artwork to set the objects in motion. Don’t hesitate to spin the colorful star- shaped MerKaBa Dura, and have fun pushing the large stainless steel rods on Mutatio to the opposite side to create new shapes. Both artists feel their artwork isn’t complete until you are actively engaged in moving the art!
