First Friday, May 4

First Friday, May 4
Artist Reception 6-9 p.m.

Artist Statement:

I am Geoff Llewellyn. My tool of choice is a camera; any camera– in particular, for the majority of photographs on display here, a medium format camera was the tool of choice. Mostly chosen for its insane amount of detail without being a giant large format huge box. I feel an addiction to capturing moments that stand out as beautiful or special. The sense that waiting one more second before pressing the shutter release would mean forgetting that specific moment for ever. Most of the photographs on display were printed at the Cabrillo Color photo lab before it was cut for reasons of budget squandering. My hopes are that photography in its traditional form never dies.

Adding to the festivities will be a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction of valuable and desirable items.

 

The Young Performers Showcase is presented by Cruzville Productions under the auspices of the Santa Cruz Education Foundation. It is designed as a fundraiser to support music programs in the Santa Cruz City Schools. Through our first three Shows, we raised over $35,000, all of which went directly to the schools music programs, from elementary through high school, for such things as instrument purchase and repair, sheetmusic, and afterschool music programs, to name but a few.

 

Show time: 7:00 pm
Tickets: $20 for adults and $10 for students under 18 with ID. Children under 6 are free.
Advanced tickets can be purchased at Streetlight Records or www.ticketweb.com
Tickets can also be purchased the night of the show at the Rio Box Office.
