Larkin invited artists from all over the country to create a piece for this show. She called it her "dream team" and nearly all responded. I am so flattered to have been asked. I'm in very good company. Since Tillamook is a bit out of the way, teetering, as it does, at the far western edge of the continent, the only artists who were able to make it to the reception were those of us within easy driving distance—Larkin and her compatriots from Whidby Island, and the three of us from Portland.
Here is Gerrie looking at Susan Shie's piece. It is phenomenal—so much to see and read. My piece is to its right. On the other side are pieces by Jamie Fingal, Sarah Ann Smith, Lyric Kinard and way down at the end, Maggie Hunt. Larkin said she put all the pieces with people in them on this wall.
This is a closeup of the shoes on Jamie Fingal's Girl Scout. We all agreed that if these shoes really existed we wanted a pair!
