Showing: Tom Killion, Landscape Prints

Opening Reception Sat. June 29 1-3PM

Tom was born and raised in Mill Valley, California, on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais. The rugged scenery of Marin County and Northern California inspired him from an early age to create landscape prints using linoleum and wood, strongly influenced by the traditional Japanese Ukiyo-ë style of Hokusai and Hiroshige.

PERFORMANCE at Toby's

5:20, 5:50, and 6:20.

Action Theater is a unique form of improvisation, where nothing is planned and everything rises from embodied presence, moment to moment. Just like life! Claire has long studied with Action Theater’s originator, Ruth Zaporah. Claire now hosts a practice group in West Marin for anyone curious about the experience. Special thanks to Toby's and Chris Giacomini for supporting all arts and community.

The Chronicle in Color a Century Ago - A Talk by Gray Brechin

July 5th, 7pm 

(immediately following the First Friday Art Walk) 

Dance Palace Church Space

$5 at the door

 

Few today are aware that major newspapers began printing full-page graphics in color in the late nineteenth century since most of the originals have been destroyed. Michael DeYoung's San Francisco Chronicle was no exception, commissioning talented artists to produce original art works for its Sunday supplements. Inverness resident Gray Brechin has been photographing these illustrations from a rare run of the newspaper that teach much about how the city promoted itself and California to the world as well as the birth of consumer culture. The Dance Palace will feature an exhibit of some of the illustrations in July. 

Founded in 1971, the Dance Palace is a place for the people of West Marin to come together, learn, celebrate and meet new friends. We host a wide variety of programs and services for people of all ages right here in Point Reyes. The lobby gallery is curated by our Art Committee and shows work by established and emerging artists of West Marin or whose subject is West Marin. Some recent artists include: Susan Hayes, Tess Felix, Mardi Wood, Cindy Davis, Ann Gessert, Sally Fairfax, Travis Meinolf and Alex McLean.

Their Mission: To enrich the quality of life in West Marin by providing diverse cultural, educational, and community services in a well-maintained, environmentally friendly facility.

Joyce Laws

Showing:

Work by Marin Artists, Kathleen Lipinski, Tom Killion, Todd Pickering, Joyce Laws, Susan Hall, Wendy Schwartz, & Andrea Hubbard. Also featuring Nichibei and Gokan pottery.

Todd Pickering, Joyce Laws, Susan Hall and Shari Milner will be at Leona's to talk to the public.

Todd Pickering received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute where he concentrated on landscape photography and sculpture. Travels have taken him from above the Arctic Circle in Norway to the rainforests in Hawaii and to the jungles of Sri Lanka. Recent years you can find him walking the curves and edges of the Point Reyes region in California.

 

Joyce Laws' studio sits on a hillside over looking Tomales Bay in Inverness. She is inspired by what I

she sees from there. Everyday her view changes. She loves how the fog softens the edges of the world around her, spilling over the hilltops, hovering in a thick mass over the bay and then thinning and lifting off the surface of the bay to give her peeks of the rippled water below and the blue sky above. She loves the bright, clear, sunny days and the strong contrast of the dark green trees against the Golden hills. Her goal is to minimize detail and to create a compelling surface to her paintings. She is drawn to paintings with such interesting surfaces that she wants to reach out and touch them. Success is when she can see that she has made a small step toward that goal.

Shari Milner's jewelry is often described as soft, or peaceful. She lives in a small seaside town, and thinks her lifestyle is reflected in her jewelry designs. They are organic, yet whimsical and feminine. She finds a lot of her clients are looking for something that is art inspired and evocative, yet sophisticated and classic. 

Open daily, 11am - 5pm.

Laurie Mahan Sawyer

Meet Laurie, view her work, and enjoy oysters!

Laurie has lived in places with beaches and canyons to explore. Where flora and fauna abound. She has grown gardens and children. Her artwork has been deeply influenced by all of it. Monet said "I am following Nature without being able to grasp her, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers". Laurie concurs.

Her most recent work is directed towards Scientific Illustration. She hopes to share her concern for this beautiful place we inhabit, and through the creation of pictures share stories that might inspire understanding and respect for the world around us.

 

At Wild West Ferments we are inspired by the ancient wisdom of our work. Fermentation is an age-old practice of preserving and enhancing food through a simple dance with nature. The act of fermenting foods has been engaged to preserve harvests and create alcohol (and religious experiences) by ancient cultures all over the world. In every culture known, the lore and traditions related to fermentation help us understand what a vital role it plays in food systems and religious beliefs. Today the frontiers of science are focusing on the benefits of fermentation in a myriad of realms, confirming that age-old ways have value beyond our knowing.

Open Friday - Monday, 11am - 5pm.
