Double the Art 

Wednesday, May 26 2010
From a distance, Julie Anand and Damon Sauer’s photo collages look pixelated, with individual squares combining to form the overarching images. But, as with the work of Chuck Close, it pays to get right up against one — you’ll notice that the connecting technology is of another century. Anand and Sauer start with archival prints, run them through an office-quality document shredder, and then reassemble the thin strips on a handcrafted loom. It’s no secret that we love art made with office shredders and looms, but the pieces in “Between” have an intriguing light/dark quality, using both digital and analog technologies, with the images doubled and slightly offset, as if scanned twice. Duality, you might be thinking, correctly. The final work explores this as well, with hands joined together in various ways, folded, pressed together in prayer, or cupped together as if cradling the soul. It’s no accident that “Between” is a collaboration, with two artists doing the work. Anand and Sauer give an artist talk tonight at 7; the exhibit runs concurrently, naturally, with Luis Delgado-Qualtrough’s “Epigraph.”

An opening reception for “Between” and “Epigraph” starts at 6 p.m.
June 2-July 20, 2010

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
