Studio 26: Cedars

 


 

Since 1919, Cedars has supported individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Cedars is known for creative employment opportunities, dynamic work environments, and residential living designed to encourage independence and growth. Here, personal accomplishments are celebrated, skills are mastered, and talents are cultivated. Cedars is committed to making sure that every participant and resident lives a creative, productive and joyous life. 

They offer residential programs that include ten homes in San Rafael and Novato, as well as the Generoso Pope, Jr. campus in Ross, where residents live full and meaningful lives as active members of their local communities. Cedars residents have access to the support of a health services team that works with staff and families to coordinate their healthcare. In addition, Cedars offers coordinated activities to ensure that residents have the opportunity to enjoy all that the Bay Area has to offer including professional sports, arts, theater and music performances, Special Olympics and other community events.

Their innovative day programs connect individuals with the best expression of themselves. Individuals at Cedars are working artists, master weavers, business owners, beekeepers, animal caregivers, chefs, gardeners, puppeteers, and volunteers who support our local community. Artists, weavers and jewelry designers exhibit and sell their work in art shows throughout the world. Their work is on display at Artist Within – a Cedars Gallery, located in downtown San Anselmo and they will now extend their studio practice to the Art Works Downtown campus.

painting

Tina von Nachtigal works as a studio artist in San Rafael. A Bay Area native, Tina finds beauty and meaning in her surroundings. From the way dappled light breaks through trees, to the beaches, and the fog that sweeps everything up in its cozy embrace.

After chronic vertigo and photosensitivity made her put down screens and turn back to her true path, fine art, she regained an appreciation for the richness in analog and nature.

Photosensitivity changed the way she viewed the world around her. Foggy overcast days became a necessary shelter from the light. This light sensitivity awakened a keen awareness of her environment and she began having flashes of delicately lit organic forms. These shapes and patterns are present in her work today. In 2017 that she transitioned into producing work that is fully abstract, using acrylics to explore these visions.

She currently resides in Marin County. And she no longer takes for granted the nature that is steps from her door and inspires her to keep her work wild and free.

watercolor, pen & ink, multimedia

Naomi Alessandra studied comparative literature before embarking on a career in fashion illustration and design. Recently she has turned her attention to telling visual stories on a more substantial scale with large works on paper and hand-painted animations. 

“I am interested in the portrayal of the inconsistencies, aberrations, and inherent dynamism of my subjects. Any story worth telling contains characters who embody contradictory impulses, and who mutate depending on the perspective from which they are examined. The multiplicity of the human experience and the impossibility of collapsing a human story into a single narrative fascinates me—that impossibility itself is the story I seek to tell. Visually, this translates into my practice of shoving multiple points of view, varied moments in time, or paradoxical character attributes into one frame.”

The Max Thelen Studio Residency

documentary installation art

Lara Myers is an Army brat, the godchild of a Charo back-up singer, a former dancer for the San Francisco band, ArmaGetItOn, and a documentary visual artist who calls Marin County her home. 

In the past two years, her work has been shown at Art Works Downtown in three juried shows: ShelterClimate Change; and Marin Contemporary; and in her Underground Gallery solo show, The 138 Houses We Lived In When We Were 10, Drawn From Memory Alone.

Her materials and techniques vary greatly between her projects, from needlefelting, soft sculpture, and work that enlists the participation and content contribution from other people, such as The 138 Houses installation and the current 9/11 recollection project, An Exact Moment In Time.

“I want to involve people in the process of artmaking by revealing my thought process and working process; demonstrating and allowing people to try each technique; and by encouraging people to convey their stories, memories, recollections and experiences, and then see them translated into collaborative art installations.”

“I need to discover what type of and how much participation, interaction, and contribution people are willing to do in an art project. My self-challenge is to push this type of work to its limits and the Max Thelen Studio Residency at Art Works Downtown is the perfect opportunity and place to do so.”

drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics

Meg Regelous, a resident of Novato, has studied full-time at the College of Marin for the past five years enrolled in art studio classes in drawing, oil painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, and jewelry. 

"I create work from my heart, and what comes of that can be sweet, haunting, or frightfully intimate. I make each piece deliberately and often obsessively, drawing from the beauty and visually rich reality in which I have grown up. I take advantage of pursuing an interdisciplinary course as one media feeds into the other in inspiring ways. For instance, printmaking techniques and painting are integral parts of my ceramic sculptures. However, the cornerstone of my practice has always been drawing and it feeds into each of my endeavors." www.meg-regelous-qx0c.squarespace.com

The Max Thelen Studio Residency is made possible with the financial support of the Fenwick Foundation.

Call for Entry.org (CAFE.org) Tips and Tricks

Internet browser:

To ensure credit card security, CAFE requires clients to use updated internet browsers (such as Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer). Before you begin using www.callforentry.org, make sure your browser is up-to-date by going to this website: http://browsehappy.com/. If you're version is not current make sure to update the software. If you are constrained by hardware limitations (example: old Mac's can't upgrade to new Safari), simply download a different, and current, browser. We recommend Firefox.

Image File format:

JPEG only, dimensions: No smaller than 1200 pixels on the longest side, resolution: 72 ppi/dpi, Size: 5 MB maximum. Make sure your images follow these parameters. If you are uploading an image and the process is taking a long time (longer than 5-10 minutes), your image is probably wrong. Unfortunately the CAFÉ message does not tell you this, it only says that it is loading and make take a while.

Learn more about CAFÉ.org image file requirements:

Applying for a call:

Uploading images to your “Portfolio” and applying to a call for entries are two different processes. When you apply for an exhibition you will need to choose entries from your Portfolio by checking little boxes next to the images. If you only have three images in your Portfolio, you must check the box for each entry to submit that entry.  

Make sure to “PREVIEW” before checking out. Once you click “CHECK OUT” you can NOT change or correct your application.

Checking Out, Payment and Coupon Codes:

When you have looked at your application “PREVIEW” and you see all of your entry images, click “CHECK OUT.” This will begin the payment process. Follow the prompts to pay for your entries. Only credit cards are accepted. If you are an AWD Artist Member you can use your coupon code to receive an entry fee discount. Simply follow the prompts until it asks you for the Coupon Code (you will not see this right away). Then enter the code and proceed.

Philosophical Understanding:

We understand that the online application process can be frustrating and hope you will overcome technology to participate in our exhibitions. While the CAFÉ.org service is far from perfect, it is still a very helpful service for AWD and for many artists. As you apply through this process, we encourage you to take a deep breath, think logically (bnot emotionally) and take your time to thoroughly read the prompts and consider the buttons. If you are digitally challenged, you may want to find someone who is not overly challenged by the digital realm. Offer them a cup of coffee, fresh baked bread or small payment and remember that the digital world is always changing at an alarming rate. We’re just trying to keep up.
