Angela Gleason and Lynn Guenther

Hammering Away-Art, Education, and Environment
December 11, 2019, 6:30 p.m.
Cabrillo College Jewelry Room VAPA 3001

Presenters Angela Gleason and Lynn Guenther will talk about their work and how  they make meaningful lives with their creative practice.

Angela will talk about her work and her SCRAP (Santa Cruz Recycled Art Program) exhibit, opening December 6. She has always been fascinated with found objects, recycling, and re-use and often works with strong political intention. She is currently finishing an Artist Residency  with SCRAP utilizing a vast array of unexpected materials from the Resource Recovery Facility at Dimeo Lane to create art with environmental, educational, and  social statements.

Lynn will show a short video about her teaching trip to Rosebud Reservation and talk a bit about other educational programs that she is involved in.

Lynn is collecting tools and donations to complete the “tool kit” she left for the students to use at the school on Rosebud Reservation. Below is what they are missing. You can bring any donations to the meeting.

Lynn says, “Fortunately some artists were very generous with materials last year, but the kids are using them and they could always use more if people want to donate any extra stuff they have. 20 or 18 gauge copper would be helpful, too, for bracelets.”

15-20 design stamps (expensive, $8 each!)
alphabet stamps
number stamps
3 ball pein hammers
rawhide hammer or delrin
drill
drill bits
3 more saws
3 bench pins

Cash donations towards tools and materials are also welcome.
