On Saturday afternoon, some friends and I dropped in at the grand opening for the Tumalo Art Works sculpture garden. Turned out to be quite the party –- with a good-size crowd filling both the gallery space and the sculpture garden.
Outside, guests were invited to watch sculptors J. Chester “Skip” Armstrong and Jud Turner in action while strolling among a number of eye-catching large-scale pieces from a variety of artists. There’s a nice cross-section of work represented in the garden, as well as the gallery. Here’s a closer look at the gallery and garden:

You’re welcome, Karen. I enjoyed my afternoon in the sculpture garden and will definitely be back for more!
It has been avery busy week following the TAG Gallery Sculpture Garden Opening. I hope it is not too late to be saying thank you for coming and offering such a lovely pictorial view of the gallery. The next time you are through Tumalo please come in again and introduce yourself. I am the owner of the gallery and want to thank you personally for your patronage .
Hi Doe — It’s never too late to say thank you! And you’re very welcome. But, for me, visiting the gallery was a treat. I’ve spent much of my life immersed in art (as a drawing major and then an arts writer). Next time I’m in the gallery, I’ll definitely introduce myself. I want to congratulate you on doing such a great job with the gallery. (By the way, thank YOU for liking my Facebook page; I appreciate the local support!).
