The newest sculpture in the Heart of Phinney Park on the corner of North 67th Street and Phinney Avenue North (in front of Francine Seders Gallery) is called “Marking Place.” It is the third in a series of collaborative works by Susan Gans and David Traylor “to explore ideas that refer to landscape and place.” Guest artists Clint Ceder and Yun Hong Chang were part of the project team.
“Marking Place” will be up through May.

The rotating artwork in the Heart of Phinney Park on the corner of North 67th Street and Phinney Avenue North now features “Samaras” by Matt Babcock.

A samara is a seed with a wing, such as a maple seed.
My goal as a sculptor is to create complex impressions using simple parts. I often use forms derived from the structure and movement of animals and plants. In April 2012 the Phinney Neighborhood Center Gallery will show some of my animal mobiles.
The powder-coated steel sculpture is 41 inches high, 41 inches wide and four inches deep. It is for sale for $6,800. If interested, contact the Phinney Neighborhood Center at 206-783-2244.
