FROM THE OPENING
Well it is that time of year again. A time to make merry, to gather
with friends and strangers, perhaps to avoid the family or take the family
to an art happening. Definitely it's a time to recognize that art is
important. A time to see what others like to make. It’s Giving
Proceeds go towards fixing the electric in the gallery
and making it up to code and hopefully less inclined towards smoking
outlets and power fluctuations as well as fire. Being that this is a
safety issue, it’s a top priority. Some funds may need to go towards fixing
the plumbing, as currently our sinks and toilets may be flooding
our lovely market friends on the corner and we wish to contribute to
helping them fix the pipes. I am also dreaming of implementing
an official mailing list, which I would like to pay someone
to set up for the gallery. Any remaining funds will be put towards a
fund for hiring help to go non-profit.

RECLAMATION THROUGH LIVE CHRISTMAS TREE REPLANTING PROJECT
We have a live tree this year. What will be done with the live tree?
This is going to become TREE SPACE, a new annex to
Sea and Space where art can be placed upon or interact with the tree.
I am looking for suggestions in terms of analyzing the best spot for
relocation for the live tree that makes the most sense in terms of affecting
Highland Park. If you have any suggestions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would love some help. In my mind this is a space for us all to make
our local environment into an art location. Tree Space can belong to
everyone and could expand to eventually become Forest Space.
