Root, Unfurl, Expand: ‘Ground’ Art Opening featuring Zoya Scholis and Jean Vengua

Tidewings Creative presents “Root, Unfurl, Expand: Celebrating Womxn” at the Lab in Carmel. This weekend of events, scheduled from March 15-17, 2019, features local visual artists Zoya Scholis and Jean Vengua, as well as performances in music and poetry from local musicians Holysea, Kristen Gradwohl and Valerie Guardiola. Artist Jamie Oksas, Professor Nükhet Kardam and local midwife and painter Leslie Drew provide insight, wisdom and expression through sharing their experiences in the arts.

On Saturday, March 16th from 6-10pm, the Lab will open part one of its spring exhibition, entitled ‘Ground’. With this group of art pieces painted, cut and scratched, Zoya Scholis and Jean Vengua share a minimalist’s eye for mixed media: inspired by elemental forms—rock, water, fire, vibration—they work with line, color, and shape in various media to create subtle and bold compositions. Saturday will also feature artist Jamie Oksas, as she DJs and shares curated music spanning decades of women musicians. ‘Ground’ will be showing at the Lab from March 16th-April 5th, 2019. 

$20 Suggested donation includes small bites. Beer, wine and springtime cocktails available for purchase.

Winter Solstice at the Lab

Super excited for the Winter Solstice party at the Lab, featuring artwork from Emily Underwood and Taylor Coble! Join us Friday, December 21st from 6-10pm for an evening of art, local seasonal food, cocktails and tunes!

About the artists:

“Three years ago I picked up a camera, and it has since become an extension of my very being.  Searching for truth via street photography is a restless and often lonely journey.  It’s capturing a frozen moment in time, hoping to convey a compelling visual story, in fact.  But it’s important to remember that a fact is not necessarily a truth!  I think the truth lies somewhere in the perception and emotion of each individual viewer.”— Taylor Coble.  Check out more of his work @coblephotography.

Emily Underwood is a Cachagua artist inspired by the landscapes of California and everything that lives and grows on them.  She creates art to convey her enthusiasm for the natural world, blending her background in both science and art.  She has a particular interest in depicting the various landforms, plant communities and natural gardens of California.  In her paintings, she distills the landscape to create compositions that emphasize form and color.  Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries and has been an artist-in-residence with the National Park Service, the Forest Service and the Elkhorn Slough Foundation.  To see more of her artwork, please visit underwoodillustration.com or @emilyfemmina.

$20 Suggested Donation at the door | 3728 The Barnyard Ste. G-23 in Carmel.

Martinmas Lantern Walk

Martinmas Lantern Walk

The Third Annual Martinmas Lantern Walk will be held on Friday, November 16th from 4-7pm at Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Carmel Valley.  Martinmas is one of my favorite autumn traditions—bringing together community and collectively bringing our light into the world as the days grow shorter.

We will begin with an autumn potluck to share as community.  As dusk falls, we will gather to hear the story of Saint Martin, sing lantern songs and follow the light of our lanterns along the hillside in a mood of quiet reverence.  The night concludes with bedtime puppetry from Audrianne Taylor.

This is a lovely event for families with young children, but is also open to anyone who would like to attend! 

Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church, 28005 Robinson Canyon Road in Carmel Valley.
