Exquisite Corpse Day

Here are all but one of the results from the exquisite corpse challenge. We plan to do another of these fun challenges. This is how it worked : We started with 6 artists who drew out a secret slip of paper with either leg, leg, arm, arm, body or head on it. Then you make 6 of this body part. The only rule was it should be stuffed. Today we reached in to a bag with out looking and drew out one of each and sewed them together and added a face. It was really fun!

Upcoming art show

Carol and Syd are 2 of the 15 local artists from the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley that have been invited to show their work in the Spring Show at the Rehabiliation Institute Meisel Gallery in Santa Barbara. The Rehabilation Institute uses art as part of the healing process. The gallery was established by Founding Medical Director, Harris Meisel, MD., who feels art has a way of transforming a sterile medical environment into a setting of color and inspiration. Dr Harris, also an artist who displays his work at the Institute, has allowed artists from the Santa Barbara area to display and share their work within the gallery.
There will be a Show Reception, Feb 22, 2008 5-7 PM, and the public is invited to come and meet the artists. The Spring show will run Feb.18 - May 2, 2008. Viewing hours are M-F, 9AM - 9PM and Weekends 10AM - 5PM. Address is 2415 De La Vina St, Santa Barbara (805) 687-7444.
