About the exhibit: 450 Pieces is an exhibition in partnership with Arts Council Santa Cruz, Radius Gallery, R. Blitzer Gallery, and Curated By The Sea. The show features over 450 pieces of original artwork by artist throughout Santa Cruz County. Last year in the height of the pandemic, the Arts Council created a new program called the Visual Arts Network to direct buyers and collectors to artists. Fast forward to today and we three galleries jumped on an opportunity to get the art in-house.

I just received notice that one of my newest pieces from the Bone Series: Medusa series was selected for an international online exhibition! You can see all 35 artists chosen for this exhibit here: Distant Ceramics

About: Distant Ceramics was created by Thomas Stollar to provide an outlet for artists during a time when physical exhibitions have become more difficult. This is the second edition of the online exhibition. Artist, and Associate Professor of Ceramics at West Virginia University Shoji Satake juried the show. We are very excited to announce that for this edition of the exhibition we received 320 artworks, from 125 international applicants. From this pool Satake, chose 35 artworks for the exhibition.

New! Visiting Artist Network

In lieu of Open Studios this year the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County has been hard at work developing an online platform for all of the Open Studios artists called the Visual Artists Network – AND IT JUST WENT LIVE!

You can check out my individual page here, but be sure to explore and see all the talent that Santa Cruz has to offer!

About: The Visual Arts Network is a curated directory of over 300 artists living and working in Santa Cruz County. Here you’ll find creators of all kinds — from painters and sculptors to woodworkers and glass blowers. Each artist has their own page where you can learn about their process & their creations and connect with them directly. Search by name, location or medium, explore all the artists, or meet featured artists . Explore the Network and meet your creative neighbors!

For 34 years, artists across Santa Cruz County have shared their creativity directly with the community through the Open Studios Art Tour, a program of Arts Council Santa Cruz County. This year, our methods have had to adapt, but our mission has not changed. While we won’t be making that connection in person, we’re excited to present this online space where our county’s creators can showcase their work and build relationships with local art-lovers.
