Spend the evening learning the simple and satisfying art of block printing with Bay Area artist and printmaker, Amy Torgeson. Her work is influenced by nature, textiles and the colors and textures gathered through travels. She uses wooden typography blocks as the basis of her printing and is drawn to the graphic yet imperfect quality of printing with these blocks by hand. Block printing technique is perfect for creating bold and simple designs, while the readily available tools and non-toxic inks make it an easy method for printing at home.
Join us for an evening of pigmented possibilities as we learn the magic of natural indigo dyeing and Shibori techniques with local textile artist Kristin Arzt. Raised on a farm in Western Maryland, Kristin Arzt had a childhood that was connected to her immediate natural resources. She has been working with cloth for over twenty years, and first learned to sew from her grandmother. After working in clothing construction, Kristin found a passion for sustainable textiles, and ultimately slow textiles and natural dyes.

With Jessica Linehan from Bobbi J.
The Abalone used in Bobbi J line are all already broken Abalone pieces that are hand picked from beaches along California and then cut and shaped by Jess. The colors and veins within the Abalone inspire how the outcome of the shape will be, some pieces untouched due to their already natural organic shapes. All Bobbi J pieces are designed and created by Jess in her home studio based out of San Francisco.
Celebrate the First Thursday Art Walk with the opening reception of Recurring Patterns at Palette Gallery! This colorful exhibition features the work of Bay Area artists Sharon Virtue and Kevin Harris as they explore the concepts of abundance, symbols, mark making and shape shifting through paintings and prints. Each artist is inspired by the development of story and pattern; the story by which their work evolves, and the patterns that begin to take shape through their medium and subject matter.
