A young"ish" Buckminster Fuller and a flexible skin geodesic dome about the time he taught at Black Mountain College!

More about the Red House

 I was asked to be the docent at the Red House gallery again a few weeks ago. We had a lot of visitors, and made quite a few sales.

So between visitors, I thought I'd take a few more photos for those of you who probably won't ever be able to visit Black Mountain NC.

The Red House Gallery and Studios


I remember when I first started coming to the Red House, how difficult it was for me to walk up these stairs. Now I don't even get out of breath! Whoopee!



Looking toward the Monte Vista Hotel...and the garden room and patio where sometimes guests at Milton's Dining Room will enjoy an outdoor venue.

The iron stairs provide fire escape from the upper rooms in the Monte Vista Hotel.

The front door, and a display of the current show.

All of the works in this show were inspired by a feather...



The guest book isn't signed by everyone, but some people do like to make comments.

Here's the desk for a docent (actually known as a sitter, not trying to educate people)

The back entrance...upstairs are artists' studios and a classroom. There is a classroom downstairs and 2 studios as well as the gallery itself.

Last of the Eschers

 






And then we said goodbye to the Columbia Museum of Art. I am happy to have shared our Escher experience with you, and to have my memories stored here in Blogger, where I hope they will be safe for me to look at in years to come.

Escher a Day

 



I will try to find out the title of this work.

Couldn't find it...but it is similar to "Rind" a ribbon portrait of his wife.

Some Escher humor

 


As seen on FaceBook a few weeks ago!

Escher a Day

 



This print was the 24th of a run of 43.

I asked whose collection this exhibit was, and was just told by a guard that it was a Greek person. I dare say if I call the museum they will know who it is.
