I’ve enjoyed being a member of the artist’s community at the Headlands Center for the Arts for almost two years now. When I left graduate school, I wanted to make bigger work, experiment, and be a part of a larger art community, the Headlands has certainly afforded that. Now, my stint as an Affiliate Artist is coming to a close. Join me for my last Open House before I relocate my studio back to Oakland.
The Open House is a chance to visit the Headlands’ artists, writers, dancers, choreographers and musicians in their studios. There are a number of international and national artists in residence, as well as emerging talents of all kinds. Readings and performances will also be scheduled throughout the day. The Open House is free, and I encourage you to take advantage of this thrice-yearly opportunity to visit the historic Headlands buildings (including 960, around the bend, in which my studio is located, in the basement), enjoy some great local and organic food at the Mess Hall, and visit the nearby Rodeo Beach afterwards.
