Many thanks to Kate Claeys and Jake Cerese of the Stargazer Inn, for donating hotel rooms to our artists for the Art Camp. Their generosity is greatly appreciated!
Just had a wonderful visit from Virginia Catherall, Artist in Residence from Great Basin National Park, who is a textile artist and museum educator at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. She did an excellent presentation on the Huichol paintings of Native Mexicans, and allowed us (local elementary/secondary students) to simulate this process with our "landscape" yarn art.
"I inspire to create and collaborate"
Just completed an amazing artist residency with Jason Nious of Molodi, Inc. He visited our three Snake Valley schools this past week to teach us about body percussion and step dancing. Not only is he astoundingly talented in the art of body percussion, but a consummate professional, so personable, inspiring and wise. The children of the valley loved him. We are so grateful he shared his gifts with us and expanded our world. See pics and videos on the Gallery page.
Soulfood Studios received its first unsolicited donation from a Snake Valley neighbor - we are so grateful for her generosity. Gratitude Joyce!!
