art art and more art

Carol and I...Syd have had back to back receptions this weekend. These are 3 of my paintings at the Rehabiliation Institute Meisel Gallery show in Santa Barbara.

These are 2 of the 3 pieces we entered in the show at Art From Scrap in Santa Barbara.

Look at all the people at the reception! It was quite a treat for us.

Mary Stanley and Barbara Carr

They held a great class at the ART CLINIC last Sat. It was a fun day. Everyone made a beautiful skarf and lots of felt beads to be used in a future project. If you are interested in our next Felting class. Let us know.

Come by and celebrate

It is Carol's and Syd's 1st anniversary! Come by Leap Day, Feb 29, and celebrate with them. The "doctorz" Carol and Syd, have some fun stuff planned for the evening. As a hint of the fun: bring your Haiku helmets ( there is no such thing), your exquisite corpse suitcase and your artist trading cards.....or just come and learn what all these things are. We look forward to seeing you in our art filled basement.
