You spin me right 'round, baby

Love museums. Hate the fact that you can't touch the art. So I had quite the guilty-pleasure time at last night's reception at Gallery House in Palo Alto. Not only can you touch the paintings, but you can spin them around. Here's some video I shot:

Painter Sydell Lewis decided to give folks more perspectives by adding rotating mechanisms on the back. Do you see a different Rorschach-style view with each turn?
Her paintings are on exhibit together with Pat Oyama's masks and other ceramic objects through May 27. Too bad blues guitarist John Cowan isn't there every night.
