Aunt Dofe’s Hall of Recent Memory in Willow Creek has had a funding crisis of sorts and has had to at least postpone and perhaps cancel the next two years of scheduled shows. Reacting to this crisis, there is a group of people who are exploring ideas to help Aunt Dofe’s continue and maybe expand. Some of these ideas will be presented at the last Willow Creek Artwalk of 2008 this Friday, September 19, from 6 until 9 PM. There will be a suggestion box and sign-up sheets for people who want lend their support.
“We are going to try something new in the main gallery this time” says curator Dave Kirk. “We’re going to have the stuff for sale, with price tags on the art. Our plan isn’t to change the format of the main gallery as much as to test the waters for putting such a gallery in the back of the building to help support the format we’ve been using in the front.”
Dave Kirk goes on to say in the spirit of this foray into actually selling art, Aunt Dofe’s will be replacing the show originally scheduled for September with a show of his own work.
[Ed. note: Those who haven’t been to Aunt Dofe’s can’t know what they’re missing. Check it out this Friday if possible. If you’re out of town like me, Dave can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org]
