Caldera Art’s annual auction “Stories of Change” was held at Pure Space on November 14th. Guests and supporters bid on fabulous items including a week in Florence, a private dinner party at Widen and Kennedy, and expressions created by Caldera students. Among the items up for bid, were pieces from the “Progressive Platter Project”. Student participants collectively paint ceramic platters as part of the project–passing platters every ten minutes to a new student artist until the piece is complete.
Pure Space evolved into a natural northwest venue, with wooden plank centerpieces, noble fir props, wooden urban-farmer bars, and mason-jar chandeliers under the mezzanine. Blue lighting filled the space like a northwest blue sky while emcee, Storm Large, hosted the program.
