About the Open Wall

The Open Wall in the Gallery at the VAULT is open to local artists to display their work in a non-juried show. All ages and all levels accepted. After the Rain until 7/21.

Commentary paper construction by Dan Keebler. Dan explains: “Originally it was a completely symmetrical tower, but I had a few extra pieces left over, so I added them on one side, making an offset. Then I thought of calling it Big Bird, as the offset could be a yellow beak. So it become a talking-head, hence “Commentary”. I always do the name last. For me the main interest is in the joints and the repeating shapes. I generally try to avoid using glue, so that I can work experimentally, editing the structures as I go along.
