Join me at the Innovative Arts and Crafts Fair May 6 – 8, 2016! I am honored to be Co-Director of this community event with my friend and fellow artist, Jean Wyatt. We launch with the First Friday Art Walk Sequim Patron Preview of creative vendors and ‘Propagation’ a music performance by Alan B. Brock-Richmond.
2016 will be the 26th year for the Arts and Crafts Fair and is a 2 day event that provides an opportunity for vendors to sell their handcrafted wares. Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose are an underlying theme of the Innovative Arts and Crafts Fair which will have demonstrations throughout Saturday and Sunday, as well as an Innovative Reuse Showcase and Contest. Over 30 vendors make this event a mainstay of the Irrigation Festival. In addition to the crafts vendors, enjoy a selection from our food vendors and enjoy our main stage entertainment.
“Quite an experience to live in fear, isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a slave.” – Roy Batty
My parents took me to see Blade Runner in the theater in 1982. I was thankful that my folks did because the artistry and message influenced my life. That is what art does. I believe that creative expression is a means to communicate on a higher, deeper level. I encourage and challenge my students to use art and media to define an ideal of a world they want to positively inspire and execute it in an esthetically pleasing way. To imagine this ideal world, that it already exists and to live in it as a responsible citizen while sharing what that exceptional life can be. While at the same time to define themselves as unique contributors who have the freedom to be themselves and express individual perspectives. Is this delusional behavior? No, your ideas and actions can create a better world. Aware without fear.
Question: Do all supeheroes have to wear tights?
Answer: No, they don’t. But, clearly I do. I love tights! Always have, always will! This is a photo of some of my tights on the bed after doing laundry.
A side question I always get, “Where’s your cape?” No capes! I think Edna from The Incredibles made this very clear why you would not want to wear one. As a superhero you have to think style and safety!
