It's all of those things, school (home school) playground (back yard) True the living space is scarce, it's very small! It aspires to be everything we want our home to be. The "itch woolen clogs" are made by artist Marissa Lee Benedict and are super soft and comfortable actually, you should come by and try them on! ;) Stairs were an installation, we quickly got used tot he goat path, no injuries, all gone now, "Ghastly Jars" jars of compost, all emptied into worries!! ;)

if you want to see the back yard, come Saturday night!
Home Gallery and SHOP present:

Form Follows Function, off a short pier

Artists Marissa Lee Benedict, John Preus, and Kevin Reiswig have been commissioned to create specific items of furniture, structures, and/or modifications of existing things and spaces within and around the Nord/Shaeffer home. Each commission reflects both a practical and social wish, the fulfillment of which is tacitly bound up in the artistic process. The exhibition further explores home life as an arena that necessitates intervention and rupture from outside; domestic life is an incrementally self-imposed set of activities, habits, attitudes and rituals, born of archaic patterns, personal history, and the imaginary; social life as an art form.

Opening date: July 20th
6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Opening performance at 8:00 pm by John Preus, Tadd Cowen and Aaron Shapiro

Closing Brunch: September 22nd
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This exhibit will develop over the course of it's two month run, visits after opening by appointment, check in regularly to see progress at our blog site. HOME gallery on facebook or
