I started with a plan. I would visit LaConner first, head over to Camano Island and then, finish the day in Edison. An afternoon and evening of adventure and visual enjoyment.
As I walked toward the gallery I knew this show would be good. Looking around at all the images I was reminded of the recipe for a good exhibit: that the whole equals more than the sum of it's parts. This small gallery filled with black and white photographs of the art history of the Magic Skagit: very Large and very Powerful..
As I left I knew I would be back to look again.
Wondering around in the sculpture garden, impressed to death, I decided to name the place, "Artland in the Woods".
It is good to find some magic.
The last call was in Edison. I love that town. I always look forward to spending time there.
The opening was packed, the artwork stunning, the conversation stimulating.
An unknown, a 'phantom' as Dana calls him.. a one man show of outrageously good work. I imagine he won't be unknown for long..
It was a good plan. It worked quite well. It was one of the best 'art for your soul' days I've had for a long, long time.
