Showcase 2017 : Notes from the Field
The Farm School… Friends of the Eel River… the Grange… The Farmer’s Guild… neighbors in every direction… Seth and Karina began their summer residency here at North Street making connections, sourcing materials, and diving into their work.
Just a few short weeks into her stay, Karina has gathered clay, wheel, kiln, and other materials into the workshop, and has begun to produce prototypes of the water cups. Seth continues his writing process, and both have found connection and inspiration here locally, both in the environment and in the people they’ve met, to accelerate their work. They’ve hosted film screenings, dinners, and community gatherings, and are quickly getting to know all of what Willits and the surrounding area has to offer.
Their work continues to be showcase in the local media, including this featured article in the Willits News last week. The culminating event for their residency is being planned for the first week of August– stay tuned for more information details about the event coming soon!
