Wood & Waterfalls

Art Presence Art Center offers a glimpse of this greening in our February Guest Artist show. Aptly titled Wood & Waterfalls, this new show will feature stunning functional art from the Siskiyou Woodcraft Guild. From fabulous furnishings and home decor to indoor “biologically active” sculptured rock waterfalls, this will be a show like none before. Come celebrate the timeless art of woodcraft and the beauty of nature.

Wood & Waterfalls opens Friday, February 3, with a reception on Saturday, February 4 from 1–3 pm, and continues through Sunday, February 26 at 5 pm.

Blue

Reception on Feb. 5 for the member’s show at Mill Art Center in Honeoye Falls. My friends Jean and Bill Stephens and many others will be exhibiting work. It’s another great place to find interesting work from regional artists.

Year of the Rabbit

Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the Year of the Rabbit! From most accounts I’ve read, the rabbit symbolizes peace, hope, tranquility, beauty and grace. Or…a calmer, more gentler year. This is the year that we are supposed to enjoy relaxation & contemplation.

I like this calendar holiday as I’ve always felt January 1st is too close to Christmas…how do you jump from fruitcake to treadmill so fast? You need to ease in. So here we go…a second chance at a fresh start to 2023.

Wishing everyone peace, tranquility and easy days ahead.

Mika Salamon

I’m fascinated by painters associated with the Jerusalem Studio School who are taking perceptual painting in a lush, sensuous direction, with a luxuriant sense of color. I’m loving what they do with limited but rich palettes. Salamon’s work takes that esthetic to an extreme simplicity.

On a visit to Fiji, my son reported back to me that he found there the poorest and happiest people he’d ever met. I […]
