Just before a slowdown in our schedule at the Boatworks things were very busy. On Friday November 8th work was able to continue on the stage rebuilding project. A window was put in and exterior siding was installed.
Meanwhile inside the Boatworks we had art coming and going. The various artworks that had made up both the Masquerade show and Swans Swans Swans were taken down from the walls and picked up by the artists. At the same time, new fine art and crafts were arriving, to be part of our annual Wearable Usable Functional show. By Saturday afternoon we had enough stuff to fill a room.
On Sunday our own Neil Scheck volunteered to straighten up some of the debris left behind by the construction crew. With that, the outside of our new stage was finished. There are still a few things to be taken care of with the interior stage construction, but we are hopeful that we will be hosting shows there within a few weeks.
Things will be kind of quiet around the Boatworks over the next few weeks, with just a few classes on the schedule and the gallery closed. But the fun starts up again on Saturday November 23rd with the opening reception for Wearable Usable Functional from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The show remains up through January 3, 2014 during regular gallery hours (minus a few holidays here and there). Admission is free.
