“Wheat Weaving” by Kathy Reid
Kathy bases her work on traditional designs. She explains that wheat weaving, or straw art as it is now called, dates back to the beginning of agriculture. The last sheaf of grain was tied or woven to provide a home for the spirit of the grain and kept safe in the home until spring. This art developed with the spread of farming.
Westhaven Center for the Arts continues its exhibit at the Trinidad Art Center with a retrospective of paintings by Ann Anderson, including framed and unframed pieces!” Meet Ann, as well as Cal Poly Humboldt artists.
Emerging Artists Showcase
Continuing at the same location is our “Emerging Artists Showcase: Icons of the Future”. This show features works by both current students and recent graduates of CalPoly Humboldt, including cast bronze sculptures by Sheala Dunlap, and drawings and paintings by Kaitlin Mottershead, Katalina Prince and Karley Rojas Viennneau.
