Read what some of our peers have to say about Window Dressing and the impact it has on our city.
Chair of the Washington State Arts Commission Board and Executive Director of the Spokane Symphony and Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox
I applaud Ginger Ewing’s project to provide more art in public places; it’s a win-win for artists who wish to show their work, neighborhoods focused on foot traffic, businesses fostering vibrancy and every unsuspecting pedestrian who stumbles upon creativity in their town.
The Window Dressing Gallery offered me the opportunity to create an art installation with a high degree of visibility to the public. It was a great space for my artwork to progress because it increased the visibility of my profile locally and allowed me the time a space to create and document a work that I believe will be a stepping stone for larger projects in my future professional career as an artist.
Owner of The Bartlett, Artist, Musician
A project like Window Dressing is unique force coming alongside businesses like ours (The Bartlett). It puts great art in approachable contexts, cheerleads our local artists along their creative path and continues to make the downtown core strong and vibrant. They also create gateways and paths between talented individuals and local businesses, something our town needs a lot more of.
Window Dressing without a doubt makes the neighborhood better, adding intriguing and eye-catching art to an otherwise easily dismissible corner downtown. I love watching people engage the installations as they pass by, and I listen proudly to people talk about them around town, not knowing that I’m loosely associated with those pieces of art. If I had five spaces downtown, I’d happily let them put installations in all five.
It's a win-win: great for the artists, great for the neighborhood, great for the random person walking by who's day you brighten.
Amazing—- the subtle movement of the lines’ shadows is uncanny, cannot be entirely appreciated in a mere photograph, or a single walk-by. The work draws you in like a three-dimensional, transparent Klee painting; there seems to a mysterious meaning, or direction to the composition. I’m not usually compelled to extend my opinion of art— certainly not online, in writing— but your work is amazing; thank you for adding something beautifully thought-provoking to my day.
