Nishi Marcus & Lauri Luck in front of her studio with the “Lucky” sign

From Karina Nishi Marcus: Caerus artist Lauri Luck has invited me to exhibit with her at her at her studio this weekend: February 16th and 17th from 12pm to 3pm. This is an excellent opportunity to get a taste of both of our work plus a taste of delicious pie! If you have a moment during the weekend to stop by — we would love to chat with fellow Caerus artists, friends and family.

Come to see art -- stay and enjoy pie!

Lauri Luck opens her studio most weekends and has generously included me for the Valentine’s Day weekend celebration. She calls these events “Come Get Pie-eyed at the Dog House Studio.” If you have not yet visited her studio you are in for a visual and gustatory treat.

Her studio is located at 2371 Gravenstein Hwy South, just outside of Sebastopol. Turn at the big yellow-ducky fabricated from an old trailer (it is hard to miss.)  Her studio building is under the “Lucky” (for Luck) sign.  Remember: You cannot get ‘pie-eyed” without pie! Lauri and I, Nishi, look forward to this festive occasion with you!

From Suzanne: After enjoying your pie and art, consider coming into Santa Rosa for The Gallery of Sea and Heaven’s Alkonost Show, 5-7 PM.  The theme is myth and legend, and the show is carefully curated to highlight visual narratives. There will be an original folktale reading, and a wild animal thing or two. The Alkonost Bird on the invitation is really fun; I love mythology, but had never heard of this Slavic woman-bird. Here is the Alkonost version and invitation from the Gallery, followed by a traditional rendition.

She’s the Bright Siren, the one who doesn’t shipwreck you; she sits on a tree of life, has a cool crown, and sings a song that erases care and worry.

I have two paintings in the show, including Europa.  I hear that the Big Bad Wolf will be there.  We all need a little wolf in our over-tamed lives.
