Procrastinators of Auburn, UNITE! Now is the time to see the Storefronts installations on Main Street before they’re gone. Fair warning.
First off, if you haven’t already, hie thee over to 123 Main to see Josie Elizabeth Davis‘ installation of paper dresses, coming to you straight from the PLOP! Literary series in Buenos Aires. The dresses, created from the pages of old books, are stunning (and wearable!) and are on display through the end of this weekend. Get there before they’re gone!
Meanwhile, just down the street, also check out Julia Haack‘s gigantic installation of new work, a poppy, celebratory, exciting series of painted wood assemblies, wrapping the corner of Main and Division Streets. Julia’s work was also recently featured in CityVisions Magazine, along with Auburn Mayor Pete Lewis!
Let’s also not forget our sister program, Storefronts Seattle!
Up in Seattle you’ve got your last chance to see Toshi Asai‘s installation at the Tashiro Kaplan building. Toshi has been sitting in that cavernous space for three months, obsessively drawing on well over 100 feet of gigantic paper scrolls, which have been installed trailing away from the windows into the recesses of the space. It’s lovely work, make sure to see it (and check Perri Lynch‘s new Storefronts work at the other end of the block).
Then get over to Chinatown, for the end of the IDEA Odyssey era. IDEA Odyssey, one of the longest-running temporary Storefronts projects to date, has just celebrated a full year of programming on South Jackson Street, and will be ending with their current exhibit, ONE, a group show. It’s been a beautiful project, they’ve supported some incredible artists and presented some stunning shows. Congratulations to all.
That’s it! stay tuned to see what’s on its way to Main Street when these installations are over, and for the future of Storefronts Auburn!
