SPACE & PLACE.. ART by Residency
Space and place are vital to art making...
The newest exhibit in the OPEN-DOOR-ARTS @ OddFellows' project begins with this premise. The diverse worked featured was created by Artists from far and near who are right now in working residency at the Mendocino Art Center.
Cast bronze sculpture, found sculpture, uniquely textured pots and other ceramics, blacksmith work, hand-crafted knives, dramatic paintings, and much, much more... Even an imaginative ceramic that seems to have melted in the fireplace...Fifteen artists who have found their way to here and now, to this place on the cliffs of the Mendocino headlands. It is all reflected in the work on display in the Coastal Expressions exhibit open 10-6, Thursday to Sunday through February 27th.
Closing weekend celebration includes the Nashville sounds of the Rose Knight Band on Saturday February 26th, brought together by Mendocino Stories. A special acoustic evening of music and dance celebrates the amazing creative spirit that resides here on the Mendocino Coast and finds its way into arts and hearts of all kinds! A Silent Art Auction begins at noon and the music party gets underway 6 til 10pm. Historic Odd Fellows hall is located at the corner of Kasten & Ukiah Streets, one block up from Main St. 937-2486
