September First Friday Santa Cruz

Very excited to be able to show you this months First Friday. I could not miss this fun loving First Friday here in Santa Cruz! Our first stop is to the Artisans Gallery  and I spotted an Ashbacher! Onward to check out Peter Koronakos! I saw his work the first time at the Artisans Gallery for the "Have A Heart for the Arts" and I fell in love. I did not want to miss this show. If you are in the Santa Cruz area this month go and check out his work. These found objects which were once lifeless and alone, Peter turns them into magical creatures that will have you and your loved ones chuckling as the feeling of love and happiness runs up and down your body. There is a pelican there that is so well done, so cool looking, dynamic! The Ram is great, I love the monkey, O, I just love these unique sculptures.


From the Artisans to VinoCruz. The famous Doug Ross is showing. I love the style of Doug's work, what is unique about this show is he allows you, the viewer, into his thought process, by way of sketches. I really appreciate being able to see the ground work of the final piece.

From VinoCruz I could hear the toe tappin', hip shakin' music at the MAH and floated my way next door to catch several different show, music, and smiles.

I was able to check out the work of Susana Arias. Beautiful work, if you have the chance to check out large scale pieces, do so!

And with that, I'm off! Flying around Santa Cruz like a little dragon fly. xo
