Enter to win one of three beautiful pieces of art and help support North Coast Open Studios!

Another year of Open Studios has come to a close, but there is still a chance to enjoy beautiful art by Open Studios artists!

North Coast Open Studios is an annual celebration of art and artists in Humboldt Count. This non-profit, artist-run event provides thousands of visitors a unique opportunity to meet the artists and catch a glimpse of their creative processes. The event is funded entirely by artist participation fees and community support. For 2013, the artists have offered an art-filled way to raise funds for this event: Support North Coast Open Studios and get a chance to win and one of three beautiful art pieces!

Glass artist George Bucquet, silk painter Tina Gleave and serigrapher John Wesa have all donated pieces for the benefit drawing. George Bucquet donated a hot cast glass bowl, approximate size is 11.5” diameter, 6.25” tall, valued at $2,000. Tina Gleave donated a” hand painted silk scarf,  14” x 60”, called “Glorious Hydrangea”; and an emerald green lamb leather mini tote with hand painted silk marble lining, just the right size for an iPhone. The two items are valued at $160. John Wesa donated “Redwoods State and National Park” a framed, limited edition serigraph, approximate framed size is 16” x 32”, valued at $265.

All three pieces will be raffled off on Wednesday, June 26th, and the proceeds will benefit North Coast Open Studios, and help defray the costs of this community event. Tickets are available until noon on Thursday, June 26th for a $5 donation to North Coast Open Studios (c/o Ink People Center for the Arts). Tickets can be purchased over the phone by credit card. Winner need not be present to win. Call (707) 442-8413 for your chance to take one of these beautiful pieces of art home with you!

Open Studios Will Run Two Weekends: June 1-2 & June 8-9, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

5 Women Artists Join to Show Their Work at Samoa Women’s Club During North Coast Open Studios

For the first time, five local women artists will join forces to show their diverse art and demonstrate their tools and techniques at the historic Samoa Women’s Club during the first weekend of North Coast Open Studios.

The Samoa event will run for one weekend only, Saturday and Sunday June 1 and 2 from 11 am to 5 pm. Participating artists include silk painter Tina Gleave, beeswax collage artist Gigi Floyd, fiber artist Cindy Shaw, ceramic artist Marty Flora, and Japanese ink painter Annette Makino.

During this free, family-friendly event, the artists will demonstrate their artistic techniques. Makino will grind a sumi ink stick in a traditional Japanese ink stone and show how to paint with bamboo brushes on rice paper. Floyd will have the tools and supplies that she uses to create both her collages and block prints, and will be happy to explain each process. Gleave will demonstrate silk painting without resist lines, while Shaw will share her deconstructed silkscreen process of placing textures under the screen, such as leaves, and transferring it onto paper.

Free refreshments will be served. In addition to original art, there will be haiku greeting cards, prints, handmade books, fabric-covered boxes and tee shirts for sale.

The historic Samoa Women’s Club, which looks right out onto the dunes, is rarely open to the public. The house is located between Arcata and Eureka at 115 Rideout Avenue in Samoa, a four-minute drive from the Samoa Bridge.

Directions are as follows: From Samoa Boulevard, turn left onto Cookhouse Road. Turn right onto Vance Avenue, and then take the first right onto Rideout Avenue.
