First Friday, March 4

Artist Reception: Friday, March 4 – 6-8 p.m.

Monica Calsbeek and Summer Stiegman both grew up in San Diego, California without acquaintance. Serendipitously, they both attended the university in Santa Cruz in the fall of 2012. Since then, they developed an artistic, feminine, and personal relationship in which they influence one another both materially and ideally.  Enmesh is a photographic series where the human form and inanimate materials create a dialogue. The subject matter of the photographs are female bodies interacting with textiles. Ranging from natural landscapes to studio lighting, Enmesh explores photographic techniques by means of experimental digital alterations. The layering process suggests that relationships with the self and objects are bound to be multifaceted and tangled.

Good Times Santa Cruz – ART SEEN

May 27, 2010

Stacie Willoughby ART SEEN
Just like music makes the body dance, the presence of music in the dancing lines of Stacie Willoughby’s fluidly ebullient drawings is undeniable. A local artist, Willoughby’s silent outbursts of color don the streets, venues and shops of Santa Cruz via concert posters that transfer the atmospheric elements of songs onto paper. Psychedelic, bold, wispy, whispery, entangling. Such are the types of descriptive words one could apply to the work of an artist whose muse is often the sound being advertised. While her illustrations (made by pens, pencils, markers and more) are usually catching eyes sporadically around town, Willoughby will be exhibiting a collection of her work in one spot, Santa Cruz Rehearsal Studios, for the month of June. An opening reception with drinks, nibbles and, of course, live music will honor the artist and her striking images next Friday, June 4. You’ve seen the art, now meet the artist. | Linda Koffman
INFO: 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 4. Santa Cruz Rehearsal Studios, 118 Coral St., Santa Cruz. Free. 425-7277.
