A Fine Pairing: Rosa Leff and Kelly Walker Exhibition

The exhibition "A Fine Pairing" provides insight into the works of Rosa Leff and Kelly Walker. The analogy of their work being like a fine wine pairing with cheese or chocolate suggests a harmonious and complementary relationship on the gallery walls. The unifying theme in both of their artworks is the celebration of the city. The details the artists explore in their work encourage you to look closely! The exhibition description ends with a hopeful note, encouraging viewers to appreciate the tiny cut details in Leff's work and recognize that these details contribute to making city living an enriching experience.

Mud To Music: Clay Flute Making Series

Musical instruments have helped us communicate and express ourselves since the beginning of human culture. Learning about the musical instruments of the ancient Americas and building and playing our own instruments helps us to awaken the memory of our connection to nature, cultivate presence through working with clay, and experience joy through sound and music-making. In this hands-on workshop, participants will get an in-depth introduction to the Ocarina, a type of globular clay flute that has been made for thousands of years in Central and South America. Over the course of four sessions, we will build understanding of and confidence with the skills needed to design, build, and decorate both simple and sculptural clay flutes.
