Perched on his pedestal on the corner of Palouse Street and Wenatchee Avenue, “Bowed Raven” by Georgia Gerber offers a moment of reflection as art and nature convene in this stunning sculpture. And it is just one of 10 new visiting pieces added to the Art on the Avenues exhibit.

Five new sculptures have been installed just on the Loop Trail between Fifth and First streets. From a skateboarding monkey to swimming salmon, these art pieces bring a sense of humor and delight to the already enjoyable scene.

There are other new sculptures scattered around town. Two abstract metal pieces — “Adoration” and “Industrial” — can be viewed at the Convention Center and in Memorial Park. A graceful stone sculpture by Arliss Newcomb is displayed in a window on First Street and Wenatchee Avenue and a whimsical stainless steel piece, “Curtsy,” is on Palouse Street and Wenatchee Avenue.

To guide you through the new exhibit — and to give you more information about the art — Art on the Avenues has published its new blue brochures. There are two new boxes of them along the Loop Trail — one at Fifth Street and one near Pybus. So no matter where you start your stroll, you can pick up a walking tour guide to enhance your experience.

To see a short slide show on the new exhibit, check out Art on the Avenues on Facebook. You can also visit our website at artontheavenues.org, or follow us on Twitter@NCWArts.

Joy Jasinek is a board member of Art on the Avenues, an organization that encourages anyone to become involved as a volunteer or a board member. She can be reached at joyjazz@gmail.com.
