A gift of time

Artists find inspiration at Djerassi compound near Woodside By Barbara Wood

A

few miles past the ridge of the Santa Cruz Mountains above Woodside, within view of the ocean on a clear day, lies a magical place — a place that inspires artists to create even more magic. It is also a place where visitors may come to view the magic. The place is SMIP Ranch, home of, among other things, the Djerassi Resident Artists Program. Since 1979, when Dr. Carl Djerassi, one of the inventors of the birth control pill, began the program in his daughter’s memory, more than 2,000 artists have spent at least four weeks at the ranch. “It’s a gift of time,” says Margot Knight, who took over as executive director of the artists’

program in November and now lives on the property. Just as scientists need labs and athletes need coaches to do their jobs, “artists need time,” she says. The program receives at least 10 applications for each residency. Many of the artists who participate have left pieces of themselves behind — work inspired by the rolling hills, the endless vistas and the redwood groves of the 580-acre site. Visitors can tour the artworks, and soak in the natural beauty of the site, on tours offered from mid-March through October. Works seen on the tours range from an exuberant quartet of stick musicians cavorting on a hillside (William King’s

Orpheus Coyote and friends, 1999) to a series of graffitiinspired drawings of imaginary creatures tucked into redwood groves and other locations that appear to be their natural habitats (Derek Jackson’s Faeries, 2002). Near the old barn visitors can see artist Alison Moritsugu’s traditional-style landscape painting, with the actual view she painted right behind it.

Most of the artworks are left to weather, and deteriorate, where they were placed. SungJoon Hwang’s 1999 piece, Skin of Dreams, is an egg-like object with something embedded inside. “Nobody knows what’s inside” but the artist, says tour guide and Djerassi program assistant Laura Amador. But it wears away year by year and “one day it will emerge,” she says.

Ms. Knight hopes to offer more tours so more local residents can see the property and art. “I get the sense sometimes that we are known better internationally than we are in our own backyard,” she says. Some visitors, like Randall Schwabacher, a telecommunications consultant for T-Mobile who lives in Woodside, are so See DJERASSI, page 27

impressed by their first visit they come back over and over again. Mr. Schwabacher, who is now vice chair of the artists program’s board of trustees, said he was first invited on a tour to a place he’d never heard of by a friend about 10 years ago. “I was shocked,” he says. “I was just so surprised because I’d never heard of it.” The art and the views “just really spoke to

me,” he says. “This was a beautiful place in our backyard.” As a child growing up in Atherton and attending MenloAtherton High School, he had loved that area, he said. A few years later, Mr. Schwabacher was persuaded to join the Djerassi program’s board, although he at first begged off because of work commitments. “It was important for me,” said Mr. Schwabacher, whose wife, Kristine Elliott Schwabacher, is a former professional ballerina.

“I’m not an artist, I can’t create any art, but I love to support people who create art.” Almost as important to Mr. Schwabacher is the preservation of the Djerassi property. In 1999, the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) purchased a conservation easement on the property, which forever protects it from development and logging. The proceeds from the easement are in an endowment to maintain the property and buildings. “That’s kind of my emphasis ...

Other board members who live in the Almanac coverage area include David Stanley, Margot Knight and Dale Djerassi of Woodside, and Gary Bridges and Lava Thomas of Menlo Park. Dr. Carl Djerassi is no longer a member of the board of trustees, and in 1999 the program became an independent organization. The group of artists who par-

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND PLANNING COMMISSION REVIEW OF FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR THE ATHERTON LIBRARY BUILDING PROJECT (State Clearinghouse #2011112059) NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Atherton Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at its regular meeting on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. in the Town Hall of the Town of Atherton to review and consider the adequacy of the Response to Comments and Final Environmental Impact Report for the Atherton Library Building Project, pursuant to Atherton Municipal Code Chapter 15.32. The Final Environmental Impact Report including the Response to Comments will be available to the public mid-day on June 15, 2012. Copies will be posted on the Town Website www.ci.atherton.ca.us, under the heading Atherton Library Building Project. Hard copies will be available at Town Hall, 91 Ashfield Road; the Permit Center, 93 Dinkelspiel (Station) Lane; and the Atherton Library, 2 Dinkelspiel (Station) Lane. Additional hard copies will be available for purchase at the Atherton Permit Center. Description: The approximately 0.3-acre project site is situated within the existing 22-acre Holbrook-Palmer Park, located at 150 Watkins Avenue in the Town of Atherton, San Mateo County. The proposed project would be sited within the general building area of the existing Main House, which is centrally located within the interior of the park. The proposed project includes demolition of the existing Main House and construction of a new two-story, up to 13,500-square-foot library and associated improvements. Some of the existing uses (e.g., meetings, classes and events) currently accommodated at the Main House would be absorbed by other facilities within the park. For the purposes of this environmental review and based on available information, this environmental analysis assumes that the existing library building, located at 2 Dinkelspiel (Station) Lane, would be repurposed for storage, Town offices or other civic use already occurring in the general vicinity of the existing library. The proposed project would require the following discretionary approvals: Environmental Review; General Plan Amendment; Holbrook-Palmer Park Master Plan Amendment; and Zoning Ordinance Amendment. The project is located at 150 Watkins Avenue in Atherton (Assessors Parcel Number 061-310100).

The group of artists who participate in the program is varied. A recent group included a playwright from Pasadena, a composer from Oakland, a visual artist from Poland, a media artist from Fargo (North Dakota), a choreographer from Korea, a writer from New York City, a visual artist from Germany, and a writer from Brooklyn, New York. Soon, even more artists will be able to take part. A new building, built to honor the program’s co-founder and Carl Djerassi’s wife, Diane Middlebrook, who died in 2007, will house four writers. Ms. Middlebrook was a retired Stanford University English professor and biographer of Anne Sexton and others. Solar panels over the cottages will provide nearly half the energy needed for the entire program, Ms. Knight said. Once the new buildings are given a final occupancy permit by San Mateo County, a few artists who were friends and colleagues of Ms. Middlebrook will be invited to participate in

the program, Ms. Knight said. She would also like to invite mathematicians and scientists who write about art. The architect of the studios, Cass Calder Smith of CCS Architecture in San Francisco, spent time as a child at the nearby Star Hill Academy commune. After he was hired to design the studios, Mr. Smith also became a program trustee. The program will probably not grow much more, however,

Ms. Knight said, because its small size allows the artists to get to know each other and collaborate during their stay. What does the SMIP in the name of the ranch signify? The program’s website explains that when Dr. Djerassi purchased the property in the 1960s, with proceeds from stock from his employer, Syntex, it at first meant “Syntex Made It Possible” but he later changed it to: sic manebimus in pace, which translates to “thus we’ll remain in peace.” A

Public Review Period for the Environmental Impact Report: A Draft Environmental Impact Report has been prepared for the above described project pursuant to the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). A copy of this document was available for public review at the Atherton Town Hall, 91 Ashfield Road, Atherton, CA from March 23, 2012 to May 7, 2012. IF YOU CHALLENGE the Planning Commission's determination on this matter in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the Public Hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the Planning Commission at, or prior to, the Public Hearing. For further particulars, reference is made to the project file maintained at the Atherton Town Hall, 91 Ashfield Road, Atherton, CA, 94027. Any attendee who wishes accommodation for a disability should contact the Building Division at (650) 752-0560 at least 48 hours prior to the meeting. Date Posted: May 29, 2012

principal at Cubberley High School in the 1970s — has been passionate about schools since her early teens, when she was devouring books by psychiatrist William Glasser and writer Jonathan Kozol. She was a newly minted teacher when Proposition 13 budget cuts swept California schools, so she returned to school to study computer science and worked as an engineering manager for two decades. “I certainly was able to support my children in their choices of colleges, but it wasn’t my passion the way education is,” she said. “All the problems you’re faced with in education day to day come very naturally to me.” Ms. Racine helped her parents, who own the School for Independent Learners in Los Altos, before striking out on her own with Lydian in 2006. She bootstrapped with existing accredited curricula to attain provisional accreditation and obtained full accreditation for her enterprise in 2009. Often, students who come to her have been “academically traumatized,” and her top priority is to “build some academic confidence and get them loving learning again. “The effects of trauma in academia are similar to what they might be elsewhere,” she said. “Not that they’ve necessarily had bad teachers, but (the students are) super-sensitive and internalize these things in a way that makes them feel stupid or inadequate. “If it happens at a young age, all or parts of their learning can get stuck. They think everybody else knows how to add fractions when denominators aren’t the same, so they’re too ashamed to ask, and all this energy goes into hiding their differences. “We work to unpack all that.” At graduation, she said, there’s not a dry eye in the house.

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. California Reconveyance Company 9200 Oakdale Avenue Mail Stop: CA2-4379 Chatsworth, CA 91311 800-892-6902 For Sales Information: (714) 730-2727 or www.lpsasap.com (714) 573-1965 or www.priorityposting. com THE FOLLOWING NOTICES APPLY TO PROPERTIES CONTAINING ONE TO FOUR SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENCES ONLY. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the exis-

tence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following two companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for "Advanced Search" to search for sale information), using the Trustee Sale No. shown above. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
