HARVEY MENDELSON: THE PORTRAIT PROJECT March 5 – April 24, 2014 Reception: Friday, March 7, 5-8pm The Portrait Project was conceived by photographer Harvey Mendelson as a community effort to bring people together. It includes over 150 portraits by Mendelson alongside artworks created by many Sonoma County artists, who used the portraits as inspiration. All art will be for sale with 25% of proceeds going to Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods for their work maintaining our local California State Parks.

We Seniors from the multimedia art class at the Windsor Senior Center will display acrylics, oils and watercolor paintings with different techniques and sources of inspiration. Enjoy a variety of themes and subjects by artists who remind us that it’s never too late to learn something new!

NATIONAL ARTS PROGRAM: 11TH ANNUAL EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION February 3 – March 28, 2014 Awards Reception: Sunday, March 2, 3 – 5pm Santa Rosa is one of over 80 cities across the country that participates in The National Arts Program. Its purpose is to foster local artistic talent, reward creative accomplishments, and encourage a greater appreciation of art. Two hundred local artists of all ages, amateur and professional, showcase their art in this exhibition.

WORKS OF NATURE: DRAWING CLOSER BY DANIELLE JOY REYNOLDS July 1 – August 21, 2014

NATURE: THE JEWELRY OF MICHELLE HOTING April 1 – May 15, 2014

Reception: Wednesday, July 9, 4-6pm

Reception: Thursday, April 3, 5-7pm

This exhibit is a fusion of Reynolds’ nature photography, often from a macro-perspective, and her Moss Works pieces—symbols and images hand-stitched to canvas using moss as medium. As you view this exhibit the artist hopes you are drawn in to the intrigue, temporality, beauty, and fragility that is our living world so that we might reflect, re-discover, or even re-create our relationship with it.

Michelle’s designs combine the elements and textures that surround us with the use of hand-cut stone, recycled fine silver, and bronze combined with natural objects and antique finds. She says it was her destiny to be a lapidary (stone cutter) and jeweler; her grandfather cofounded the Corpus Christi Gem and Mineral Society and she grew up with his rocks and stories of rockhounding on the King Ranch.

Consultant Selected to Lead Development of Santa Rosa’s Public Art Master Plan Project Supported by NEA Our Town Grant Funding The City of Santa Rosa’s Art in Public Places Program has selected a consultant to develop its Public Art Master Plan. Todd W. Bressi, partnering with Via Partnership and The Planning Center| DC&E, has entered into a Professional Services Agreement with the city for consulting services. Managing the project for the city is Arts Coordinator, Tara Matheny-Schuster, partnering with the Sonoma County Museum. The consultant will facilitate community input, organize and host stakeholder meetings, and form focus groups of arts not-for-profit organizations to develop a plan that reflects the needs of the community. Opportunities for the public to participate will continue through spring 2014. The City of Santa Rosa has several plans and ordinances related to the arts, such as 1% for Public Art in Private Development Ordinance and Business Plan for the Downtown Arts District. However, it does not have a comprehensive master plan for public art. A $50,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts- Our Town Program will allow the city to develop such a plan..

YO U T H S U M M E R C A M P S Lifeguard Training Camps

OPEN WATER JUNIOR LIFEGUARD CAMP (Age 9-16)

ADVANCED JUNIOR LIFEGUARD CAMP (Age 9-16)

SURF JUNIOR LIFEGUARD CAMP (Age 9+)

In partnership with Sonoma County Regional Parks, campers, age 9-16 years old, will have fun building skills and confidence in and around the water. This 1-week program is located at the Spring Lake Swimming Lagoon and is designed to provide campers with the knowledge and respect for the open water environment at lakes, rivers and beaches as well as open water lifesaving skills. Skills taught include: swimming rescues, paddling rescues, boating safety, basic first aid and CPR. The instructors will work to build a positive relationship fostering an inquiring attitude while emphasizing the importance of safety, respect, healthy habits and camaraderie. Enter Spring Lake through Channel Drive.

The Advanced Junior Lifeguard Camp builds on skills learned in the entry level camp similar to those that professional open water lifeguards use daily.  The camp is modeled after the Sonoma County Regional Parks Open Water Lifeguard Academy that professional lifeguards must complete to work for the County of Sonoma. The camp will move at a fast pace and be both physically and mentally demanding in a teamwork rich environment that foster growth in self-confidence, aquatic awareness and good communication skills. The Advanced Junior Lifeguard Camp will prepare you for a Lifeguard in Training (LGIT) position and a future career in emergency response.

This exciting open water surf camp is offered in partnership with Sonoma County Regonal Parks and takes place at Doran Beach on the beautiful Sonoma County Coast.  Junior Guards will spend time learning to surf, using rescue equipment in the ocean, performing ocean rescue operations, learning about ocean safety and other lifeguard operations.  Sonoma County Regional Parks Open Water Lifeguards will provide lifeguarding safety and share their expertise.

Young men in 4th – 12th grades have the opportunity to be part of a group led by positive role models where they can bond with their peers, form new friendships, strengthen their leadership skills, learn about and serve their community and much more! Just a few of the activities planned are field trips, projects of all kinds, giving back to the community and just hanging out in a safe environment!

THE GIRLS CIRCLE The Girls Circle is a model of structured support for girls from ages 9 to 18 designed to foster self-esteem, help girls maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women in their community, counter trends toward self-doubt, and allow for genuine self expression through verbal sharing and creative activity. Participants are encouraged to share experiences that are helpful to one another in a safe and private setting – The Girls Circle does not aim to provide advice.  By voicing their ideas and opinions in a safe environment, it strengthens their confidence and encourages them to express themselves more fully.

Program facts: More than 120 boys and girls participated in our Fall Basketball program. We served over 100 youth in our Flag Football program this past fall.
