I have had a tremendous number of request for images of local icons in our community. I am sure most of you, that live here in Bellingham, will recognize this “Conference Table.” This outdoor sculpture was originally created by Tom McClelland in 1978. It consisted of a large cedar wood conference table with six silhouetted figures seated across from one another, each extending a hand to shake with the person opposite them. The figures form the base that holds up the table. I believe the wood table was replaced in 1997. This image was most likely captured around 2003 and was recently converted to this “Impressionist Style” look. The small JPEG file you see here does not begin to feature the beautiful textures in the final render that was 25 x 25 inches. The small vignette below it is a small crop of the image printed to size.
