FALC General Meeting, Quinlan Center, Craft Room, 10185 Stelling Rd., Cupertino
Monday, August 12th 2019 7:00 PM - 9 PM
A lifelong resident of Northern California and a visual person by nature, I have always found inspiration in the beauty of my surroundings. It is a blessing to be in such close proximity to rivers, mountains, and the ocean. Having been an art lover since early childhood, painting has always been a great love but something that I rarely had time to do. With a degree in design, I have worked in freelance graphics for 25 years, which helped to satisfy my compulsion to make things pretty while keeping busy with my children and husband and dogs and endless projects. With the loss of my husband a few years ago I suddenly found myself a void to fill and watercolor called my name. Painting saved me and has become an addiction and a joy. I am obsessed with value and color and light, and the beautiful movement of water and pigment, and hope to share the joy it brings me in my art.

CALL FOR SOCIALLY ENGAGED ARTISTS Sanchez Art Center, Pacifica, CA, seeks socially engaged artists to create site-specific community engaged public art reflecting on sea level rise, to support the community to civilly engage in authentic conversations, and work collaboratively to meet the requirements for municipalities to develop adaptation strategies. Understanding that we need to adapt to the impacts of climate change, we also recognize the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that accelerate climate change and resulting impacts like sea level rise. From manufacturing to disposal, the more stuff we buy and throw away, the more energy is used. (More than 40% of our climate impact comes from how we make, haul, use and throw away stuff, including food. These are called consumption emissions.) Physical resources used in this project must therefore support a waste reduction approach that incorporates repurposed materials and recycled content. DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: Tuesday, July 9, 2019, 11pm For more details 1220 Linda Mar Blvd, Pacifica, CA, 94044.
