The Gallery without Walls is an outdoor sculpture exhibition put on by Lake Oswego. Each year some of the pieces are rotated out and new pieces take their place.
Here are some of the new sculptures that I found within the core area of Lake Oswego. It is possible that there are others, but so far there has been no information from the city on their website about the new exhibits. These will be on display for two years and then one of them will move into the permanent collection. This is part 1, the second group of 7 can be found here.
Mike Suri – Peer. Constructed of mild steel “Like an old friend”
Jennifer Corio and David Frei – Wind and Wave. Constructed from Stainless Steel with a powder coat. “No wind, no waves” – Chinese proverb.
This one is new, and looks like the work of Travis Pond. He produced Totem that ws in this spot before, but there was no plaque on this exhibit.
Lloyd Whannell – Silent Watcher. Bronze on Black Granite, embellished by one of the local merchants. “Silent words spoken to the night sky reflected by the stars and heard in the hearts of those with silent minds.”
Jim Demetro – Kissing Toad. Bronze. “Have you kissed a toad lately?”
Devin Laurence Field – Zephyr. Stainless Steel “Lake shore breezes, an osprey patrolling the waters, and festive ribbons as a heraldic element.”
Ken Turner – Dancer. Stainless Steel “Dancing with the light, the joy of motion.”
