Pump House Art Show

KTOO is soliciting artists who wish to contribute works, in all mediums, that relate to the historic Pump House at Sandy Beach for a show at the station in February 2014.

The Treadwell Mine’s salt water Pump House has stood sentinel on the 80-acre Sandy Beach in Douglas for nearly 100 years. It has been the subject of paintings, prints and photographs and even serves as the Island Pub’s business logo. The Pump House’s well known image has been captured at sunrise and sunset, at low tide and high, with dogs and kids in the foreground, and with fishing boats, barges and cruiseships sailing by.

The show will be part of a month-long celebration of the structure, highlighting its history as well as its future.

Artists are invited to submit work for consideration ready to hang by Monday, February 3rd, 2014 for a First Friday Show on February 7th. For more information, contact Jeff Brown at 463-6425 or jeff@ktoo.org
