|—||Louis M. Salerno|
This is the store front of the soon to be holiday VALA Art Shop before it undergoes its transformation.
I’ve been accepted to be one of the participating artists in the VALA Art shop at the Redmond Town Center. The Redmond Town Center has allowed to the use of a temporarily empty storefront in order for this special holiday pop-up shop to occur. All artists will be selling unique and locally crafted artworks ranging from pottery to painting to fiber works to jewelry…
The VALA Art Shop is located on 164th across the street from Z Gallerie; between Starbucks and Learning Quest Toys. It will be on the holiday weekends starting on the 23rd of November and will be Friday - Sunday 11am -5pm. The art and artist will rotate out during the different weekends. I’ll be there the first two weekends the 23rd - the 25th and the 30th - the 2nd.

To commemorate Redmond’s 100th Anniversary, and to share the rich history of art and artists in the area, VALA has selected twenty-two local artists to create the Redmond Centennial Collection. I am one of the selected artist! Some of my photography will be in this collection! The Mayor of Redmond will be at the reception and some of the selected artists will win prizes.
It is a wonderful honor to be a part of this collection, especially since I love Redmond so very much. The exhibit will open November 29th, and there will be an opening reception later that night from 5:30pm until 7:30pm.
The Redmond Centennial Collection at the VALA Gallery is located on the second floor of Redmond Town Center (next to GameStop). Regular hours are Friday-Sunday 10am-5pm
Path Entanglement is a mixed media, texture painting series exploring the concept “paths” as conceived by me through my thoughts on the Australian aboriginal philosophy of Songlines, my thoughts on the physics concept of path entanglement, and my thoughts on people, life and the world. These paintings physically convey these thoughts.
In these paintings, when the paths are viewed as a group, a message, much larger than an individual path’s, is created. The concept that I imbue in the paintings is that each individual life is a path and that although, two paths can never be the same path, never actually touch, and never exist in the same space, they can appear to combined, appear to touch, appear to exist in the same space. Also, that no matter the distance and no matter the separation, the paths are connected through universal message that they create. This connection makes up the pattern of their world, while individually, each path retells itself and it’s singular message.
It is my intention that these paintings can be experienced not only by people with good vision but also by people with who have difficulty seeing or people who are blind. I created these paints to be experienced by the eyes and/or by the hands of the person experiencing them. These paintings are meant to be touched.
