I originally set out to do some product shots of my new glow in the dark Baby Head Cup aka the Ghost Cup. That was my intention anyway. Well things kinda went sideways in a delightfully fun way. I love my friends!
Don’t miss this one-night event with work from 7 local artists that explore love through the eyes of the scorned, mad, hungry and obsessed. Appropriately timed on Feb 15th 2020, this heartbreak fest is a perfect antidote to chocolate hearts, snuggling couples and sickeningly-sweet sentiments typically associated with love. From gore to satire, participating artists are exploring themes and expressions of love through various mediums, including illustrations, ceramics, painting, music and photography.
Ando Ehlers, Broken Calliope, Dan Infecto, Elisha Marie Brilhante, Gabrielle Denby, Heather Cornelius and TJ DeMots.
Acoustic Musical Guests: Kelsey Crow and Stoned Evergreen Travelers.

New Work by Scott Nelson
It’s a photographers’ job to capture a moment, but how exactly does one “capture” a moment? The act of plucking emotion from within the context of reality and distilling it into an artifact seems an impossible task, yet Scott accomplishes this and more in his new body of work titled “Here Now Forever”. These artworks are trophies distilled from explorations outside of the bonds of time. Some stretched like exotic animal skins; others composed to form their own visual language. Scott’s pieces offer us an omniscient view of existence, unfettered by the limiting perceptions of our physical being.
“I’m fascinated by time and humankind’s relative understanding of it. As an artist I like to step out of that seemingly one-way stream and to explore my own relationship with things considered temporary and permanent.” –Scott Nelson
Studio Tour Hands-on activity:
During open studios, Scott will demonstrate the process of transferring photo images to glass and other media. Anyone who stops by will be able to take part in the process, and will get to take home a small photo keepsake that they have helped to make.
