On the left is Austin England's "Tempt", a mixed-media piece which has a 3D form with a convoluted black line stemming from it, and a face, looking a bit like a Tibetan demon looking on in the corner. On the right is England's "Stirred" (is the beer bottle part of it?). A wavy red line enters from the left, and exits the head's ear more modulated/reduced in amplitude. Or, wait...it might be going the other way, amplified.
On the right is "Strain" by Austin England. There's that undulating line emerging from a mouth held open by fingers. There's a sense of urgency and great tension here.
|Bluebird Book Bus|
A wonderful surprise was seeing the Bluebird Book Bus parked by the main gallery at Tempus. In the song "The End", Jim Morrison (who had area ties) sings a line that goes:
The Blue Bus is calling us,
driver where you taking us...

People meandered around the shelves listening to different playlists, some sat in the middle of the gallery and had a great time.
Artists made materials to go with the playlists. On the right is Justin Myers' playlist.
Details of hand-wrought materials...
Tempus Projects shows attract very interesting and beautiful people...
The designs for the T-Shirts were along the back wall, and people could place orders, and get them made right there while they waited.

Congratulations to all the artists, to Tracy Midulla Reller, and Mitzi Gordon for a diverse and fun show and evening.
