Kelsey Cerdas is a Santa Cruz based artist currently focusing on her modern fiber art collection, titled “Inspire By Kelsey”. Each one of a kind piece is inspired by elements and scenery from nature and design, and created with intention to inspire and intrigue those who gaze upon it. To create her unique style of art, Kelsey creates a fiber canvas by suspending hundreds of ethically sourced wool from wood, she then “paints” her canvas by carefully hand dying each strand to create a stunning fiber painting.
Charlie Powell is an established illustrator whose work you may be familiar with from publications including the New York Times, Washington Post, Wired, Slate, Forbes, Guitar Player and many more. For this show, Charlie has created an original body of work which reflects his deep interest in music and portraiture. He will be showing paintings of some of his musical heroes including Johnny Cash, Leadbelly, and Patsy Cline.
