  • Call for art!

    Call for art!

    All members of the community are invited to apply to the Phinney Center Gallery’s March show “Bridging the gap—art that brings us together.” The theme is open to interpretation by each artist’s individual vision and creativity, but we are thinking of pieces that illustrate how art can close the gap – economic, cultural, social, political, geographical or otherwise – between people and help us be more compassionate, informed and observant. The submission process will be open January 15 - February 1. Art will be displayed in the gallery from March 6-April 5, with the opening reception on Friday, March 8 during the PhinneyWood ArtWalk....

  • Would you like a community woodshop?

    Would you like a community woodshop?

    PNA is considering the idea of opening a community woodshop program on the Phinney Center campus. We're picturing a small shop stocked with professional, safe woodworking tools that neighborhood members would not typically have at home. During woodshop hours, shop volunteers would be available to teach safe tool usage, operate equipment, and advise you on the best ways to accomplish your project. We've been talking with a group of neighborhood members with a passion for woodworking, and are excited about the project, but we'd like to hear from the rest of our community before committing the resources to start the project....

The Gathering Place group and staff team decided to take it further—to make the film widely available to anyone online for free, to stream or download. ...
