It has been almost three weeks here at my art residency in Salida Colorado. Deep into the science research and reading that is foundational to my art. New art forms and ideas coming from the science! So excited to be working with ocean issues.
The folks in Salida are incredibly welcoming, friendly, resourceful, and creative. I love the slower healthy pace of life here. The mountain vistas are in every direction and sunsets are spectacular. Here on my last day I woke to about a foot and a half of snow!
I am so grateful for all that has happened here, and I am especially thankful to writer Susan Tweit who founded and hosts this residency, called Terraphilia (definition: an intrinsic affection for and connection to the Earth and its community of lives.) See Susan Tweit's books and blog.
The Salida Council on the Arts is a wonderful sponsor of the residency, and the board members volunteer their time and talents to make Salida the special place it is. Come to Salida for the annual Art Walk- an explosion of arts on the streets of Salida- sounds like its going to be pretty wild this year- June 26-28.
