AT SUMMER SOLSTICE NOW!! Tonight is Locals Night at Solstice 4-9pm. Tomorrow I’ll be here 12-8 and will not be here Sunday unfortunately. I’m facing Anacapa across from the huge church.
COME SAY HI 🙋♀️.
Huge THANK YOU to Studio Underground @studio.underground.sb for sponsoring Solstice and bringing us artists in.
So so true. I have loved sharing the message this week from @justacard . If you know someone doing their own business, buy from them and don’t ask for a discount 🙄 I true friend doesn’t ask, equally I know I would give one to my friends anyway but it’s better for your friendship not to ask. We are in such exciting times for handmade. When I started 10 years ago it was a really hard slog to get your name out there. Now we have the wonders of social media, platforms for selling like Etsy, Blue Thumb, Society 6. So many ways to reach people all from the tiny corner of the world you live. And we as buyers can pretty much find any weird and wonderful gift, get it delivered all in our PJs 😂 you just have to think outside the chain store box! If you have a local gift store that supports local products I urge you this weekend to rummage in your pockets for some loose change and buy something small even #justacard
Hey, it’s the weekend! Which means it’s the perfect time to try something new, do something different - get a bit cultural! Supporting local arts is crucial to building community, supporting local organisations, small business and individuals - people who are so incredibly brave in taking the leap to follow their guts, laying bare their souls in public for all to see. If you buy art - you’re not just buying a ‘thing’. You’re buying years of study, experimentation, days, months and weeks of failing but persisting, moments of pure joy, (and in this artists instance - weeks of freezing temperatures with hands in water and sacrificing sleep). So, if you don’t have plans - go and see an independent gallery, a show at the theatre, some comedy, a gig or a dance troupe. Either way you will be adding something meaningful to your weekend - whilst supporting someone’s dreams 〰️ This is my artwork ‘The Hills’ currently part of my solo show Kindred of the Dust at @timelesstextiles in Newcastle - the only Fibre Art Gallery in Australia. Pop in for a squiz if you’re in the area, I’ll appreciate it more than you will ever know 🙏
The aftermath of a show is always bittersweet. Happy that it’s over, but hard to believe that it’s over and that just last weekend I was preparing to share my art with my friends & family who came from far and wide to see me dance. These photos that were so graciously taken by Stephen and are proof that my voice is important and I was so blessed to share my time with these amazing individuals and thankful they could witness my craft. Now— a little rest before heading into a busy(ish) summer season ahead and into a busy Fall. 😘 .

Well....That was 6 yrs ago. And tomorrow is our 17th annual - because apparently we’re crazy. Crazy about our YACsters and about YAC @youthartscollective and because this fundraiser earns a huge chunk of our operating costs. PLEASE cheer us in with your support again- or for the first time https://Yacstudios.org/support-us/
