W E LCO M E Dear Friends & Neighbors, Your 2018 Activity Guide is here! While the wildfires changed our community, rest assured we are committed to providing the same quality recreational programs you’ve come to expect from the City of Santa Rosa. None of us will ever forget the early morning hours of October 9th. Above all, we also remember the many acts of heroism and kindness that followed—binding us together in strength. It’s been said “in adversity, we know our friends”… and this is so true! For the resiliency, generosity and love this community has shown and continues to show, we are grateful and proud. In this Activity Guide, there are hundreds of reasons why Santa Rosa is Still Strong! From programs for seniors, to adult fitness classes, to a scholarship fund so children can learn to swim; Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks provides opportunities for good health, social interaction and fun! Just like concrete and wood, these are essential elements to rebuild our vibrant community. So, we invite you to participate! Please take some time to leaf through the guide, see all that’s offered and sign up to join us! Sincerely Yours, Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks

On the Cover Youth riders took inaugural loops on May 6, 2017 at the opening celebration for Santa Rosa’s first bicycle pump track at Northwest Community Park (2880 West Steele Lane). Envisioned and built by community volunteers working with Recreation & Parks, the pump track is a continuous loop of dirt berms and mounds that you ride without pedaling. The name comes from the pumping action used by the rider’s body to propel motion. The track is open seven days a week for the enjoyment of all, weather permitting. It is maintained by the Redwood Empire Mountain Bike Alliance through Rec & Parks’ Adopt-A-Green Space Program. Learn more at SantaRosaRec.com.

an artist. It contains examples of watercolor, acrylic, collage, fabric and monoprint. It shows her familiarity with various media and styles from what she calls “intuitive” (nonrepresentational), abstract, impressionistic to utter realism. When she paints, she mixes on the canvas; she refines with each session, gradually reaching the realism she desires. Seeing the subject closely requires much scrutiny, which becomes more clear as she adds her paint. She includes in her training the study of the color of shadows on a wall. Currently she is working on stylization and abstraction in her paintings.

At the heart of Sonoma County artist Christie Marks’s practice lies a nostalgia and melancholy that’s ingrained in the American psyche. ‘Signs of Life’ features mixed media works that are the newest additions to this theme. Marks’s mixed media process consists of combining drawing, painting and collage. The works are multi-layered and are constructed over an initial layer of brown paper bags. Translucent layers allow the viewer to discover how the overall compositions were brought to life. In addition to painted

The iconic images of old western history have inspired twenty-seven-year-old artist, Mae Blackmore, from a very young age. She was initially drawn to the southern canyon silhouettes, the dry vegetation and the unrelenting wildlife. In her youth, her grandfather became terminally ill, moved to the desolate mountains of New Mexico and Mae visited in the summers. During this time, her grandfather deepened her love for the southwest through old Hollywood westerns. Blackmore painted throughout her childhood and now uses natural wood grain to put a whimsical spin on the old west that inspired her. Mae Blackmore has been painting in Sonoma County for 12 years and has studied art at the Santa Rosa Junior College. She currently lives and works in Santa Rosa, California.

CYNTHIA SWANN-BRODIE: ANIMALIA February 27 - April 12, 2018 Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 5-7 pm How might the animals, birds and even plants experience the world we share with them? Cynthia, as an artist, loves to explore this subject through observation and imagination. She likes to capture the individual personality in animals but often uses some abstraction in her paintings to try and connect with that mysterious realm of “beingness” of creatures in nature.

Ben is a Sonoma County artist currently working in sculpture. He uses structure and rhythm to explore a slowly evolving personal mythology. A mix of simple forms, solid colors and organic textures make up the majority of his work. Sculpture ideas come from a variety of places including dreams, both natural and manmade environments, and objects found in our day-to-day lives. They are a combined reflection of himself and his surroundings.

As a child, Madeline was fascinated by the leaves, twigs, fabric, buttons and other ephemera found on her paternal grandmother’s Illinois farm during summer visits. Now, the rural countryside of Sonoma County for the past two years has offered comforting memories of her formative art years.
