The Pharmacy Gallery & Art Space, Inc will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary with a kick off on the weekend of June 11th & 12th. Each night, we will be open from 6-9pm with snacks and drinks and live music. What a year to celebrate!!! From our beginnings at Pasfield & South Grand, to 5th and Cook and now our present location at 623 E. Adams, we have strived to cultivate and celebrate expressions of multidimensional artists. We have diligently worked to be a catalyst and forum for advancing, discovering and connecting through contemporary art. And we have sought and continue to seek to enrich and educate the community through innovative cultural events. Pharmacy members will have all new artwork on display, as well as, a recent art installation produced by members, children from surrounding schools, the elderly and our patrons. “Tranquility in Flight”, composed of over 3500 origami doves with messages of peace and hope for our city, our country and our world, delicately sweeps through the entire gallery. A must see! Please join us and celebrate with us!
TRANQUILITY IN FLIGHT: A MULTISENSORY INSTALLATION
On Saturday, May 22nd, our project, using origami doves, was completed and can be viewed at the Pharmacy Gallery & Art Space. Beginning in May, Pharmacy members have been orchestrating this event: Diane Schleyhahn, Jason LaBonte and A.J. Fyfe are leading the install of 3500+ white origami paper doves carefully folded by our community from school children to the elderly. At the gallery, we have been collecting the doves and have built metal scaffolding to suspend them from the ceiling which will weave through the air over the studio space, over the artwork and over our community looking up. The Opening Event will include original musical compositions and dance performances to enhance this experience. This breathtakingly beautiful art installation of delicate white doves will begin their group flight on Saturday, May 22nd in harmony, light and peace it will continue through the summer.
