Mingle and Muse at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology
OTIS – “Mingle and Muse” is the Sitka Center’s summer artist lecture series. From May to October the Sitka Center offers workshops that nourish people’s desire for art making, writing and exploring the natural world. One of this summer’s instructors, Judy Vogland, will talk about her artwork Tuesday, June 18th at 4:30pm. The fun begins with mingling and light snacks at 4:30pm followed by the presentation at 5:00pm. If you’ve never been to the Sitka Center, this event is a great chance to explore the studios and see what it’s all about.
Judy Vogland is an artistic force, making this a presentation not to miss. Judy is known for her poignant assemblage collages, courageous teaching methods and her dubious relationship with rules – she loves to break them! The mixed media surfaces of Judy’s work explode with visual stories that are constructed out of discarded objects. This cultural bi-product takes on a second life as Judy reveals the sentimental stories these discarded items contain. How can art reflect the story of our humanity? This free lecture series is designed to get people excited about how creativity can make the world a better place.
Sitka Center Executive Director, Jalene Case, says, “We often hear from people who live locally that they’ve never been to the Sitka Center so, this is a delightful way to visit while enjoying a lively presentation about art. And, thanks to our local sponsor Inn at Spanish Head, the event is free.”
