VAT-Greenwood Institute 

by Michael Bowen & r & & r & & lt;span class= "dropcap " & S & lt;/span & ix artists from Chewelah's Greenwood Institute d'Art will be exhibiting their work at the Constant Creations tattoo parlor during the Visual Arts Tour (Friday, 5-9 pm, and Saturday, noon-8 pm). The Greenwood Institute promotes artistic awareness by teaching watercoloring, pottery, puppetry and even aerobics.





David Govedare -- famous for the Riverfront Park "runners statues," the Coeur d'Alene feathers along Northwest Boulevard, and the 14 horses in Vantage, Wash. -- will display original sculptures. (As if Govedare didn't have the advantage of sheer talent, his chances of being included in the Greenwood show are maximized by the fact that he is married to Gina Greenwood.)





Keith Powell, who is Govedare's longtime friend and collaborator, will show his scratchboard and watercolor works.





Narada S. Carter grew up in the Chewelah area and lives there now; he trained at Seattle's Cornish College of the Arts. Working from photos and with water-mixable oil paints, he creates forest scenes with a high degree of photo-realism, then "combines them with geometric designs, patterns and symbols to evoke a more visionary, mystical effect." By superimposing patterns on scenes from nature, Carter seeks to suggest the interconnectedness of all life.





Orla Colvin has created masks and collages for the viewing pleasure of VAT patrons. Greenwood explains that here is where the real hands-on adventure of this exhibit will be centered: Visitors will see a table set as if for dinner, but with masks, paints and "other textural 'food' things." Masks will be made collectively right then and there.





Finally, David Perry will exhibit pen-and-ink drawings of Native Americans and other human figures, and the Groot family has mixed-media works to contribute to this group show, which runs through Oct. 30.
