Beach Balls and Traffic Cones Abound

 Domestic Perserverance, the exit show of Ceramic Artist in Residence Nate Ditzler opened on June 28th and will be on display in our Middle Gallery until July 20th. Nate will present his artist talk on Thursday, July 11th at 7:00 PM and will discuss the technical and conceptual aspects of his often dimmunitive,  occasionally overscaled, diaroma style tableaus.

New Classes Beginning Soon 

We have new classes beginning the week of July 7th. If you missed registration in June, there is still room for enrollment in Posters that Sing with designer, musician, and new LAC visual arts instructor Nicholas Stahl, as well as Counter Culture Cloth with Anne Luben. Exhibition Back to the Garden: Photographs of the 1969 Woodstock Festival will open on August 9th in our gallery, and we can’t think of a better way to experience the exhibition than by taking a class that merges visual arts craft with a pop cultural music theme. Enroll now to create an outstanding show poster or the perfect patch for your denim jacket.
