Our own local favorite creative artist force of nature, Michael Leeds was honored at the Gail Rich Awards this month, his broad stroke can be experienced from the rockets blasting off at the Bonny Doon Winery, the Santa Cruz Movie Marque, and the crazy cadre of automobile/kinectic art that we see him driving around on occasion.
This lovely slice of community we embrace, it’s the slice that sustains. Gives us a moment to pause and ponder the wonder of creative magic. Thank you to the Arts Council of Santa Cruz and Wallace Baine- Bravo one and all.
We've discovered that the artloft is a delightful spot to create in early morning. We've pulled together papermaking, plein air painting (see below) and a Weathergrams/garden art offering as we use foraged materials for the papermaking this year. Artist- Painter- Sandra Hansen will take the helm and use cattails for the paper process. Join us for weekends in August 2017. Friday meetings at 6:00 pm, Saturday workshop from 10:00 am-5:30 p.m. bring a sack lunch or email us for coverage.
