Storyline Public Reading Event

Enjoy brand new works from: Eleanor Bailey, Alan Buhtz, Craig Combs, Tim Robinson, David Harmon, and our feature for the evening……….Kevin Oshiro! That’s him playing the saxophone, but don’t let that fool you, he’s also a writer of songs and stories, some of which we’ll have the privilege of hearing him read at this event. If we’re lucky, and I think we are, we’ll hear part of his emerging science fiction novel Cold Prey.

Enjoy the reading, then stay afterward for a reception where you can hang out with the writers and other great people!

It's been two months this time, as September's gathering was canceled.  So you've had two months to put together something creative to bring and share.  I would love to see you this Saturday (whether you have anything or not).  We'll gather at 10am, spend awhile getting connected, enjoy some simple food & drink, then share our artwork until 12:30 or 1:00.  It's a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Come on by!

House Concert with Minus Mary - TONIGHT!

What fun! Minus Mary has just finished an album, and they’re having their CD release party here with us!

They’re a great local band that plays acoustic-based original roots music, along with traditional, country, Americana, and rock.

Jason Loeks on upright bass, Alexis Hyatt on fiddle, Dan Gabel on mandolin and guitar, Dave Tavel on drums, and everyone on vocals!

There’s no charge for the event, but we’d love to send them away with donations that show our support. (We’ll also have beverages for sale to support Creative Interfaces.)

Check out their music on their website: minusmary.com

Come join us.  These guys are awesome!

August Porch Nights - Week Four

August Porch Nights - Week Four

Once again, we're continuing our much-loved tradition on the porch at Cedar House.  This is a fun opportunity to hear stories read aloud -- something we all enjoyed as kids, but you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it.  Come listen to part four of "The Princess and Curdie," an old and wonderful tale by George MacDonald - first published in 1883.  We'll have two reading sessions with a short break in the middle.  MacDonald's stories are known for being highly imaginative and full of deep, yet accessible teaching.  As a writer, he was a true innovator, whose works influenced Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. (The photo here was actually taken by Lewis Carroll in the 1860's.)

Enjoy a time of encouragement and fellowship with a wonderful group of Bay Area artists.  Bring a piece of your art if you have something ready, but it's not required.  Feel free to show up and participate as much or as little as you'd like.

This month, we're excited to be joined by Luke and Becca Wakefield.  We've missed their creative contributions since they moved away about four years ago, and now they're back!  Well, for a couple weeks, anyway.

Join us --- it will be great to have you!  Enjoy fresh coffee, tea, and light morning fare as you experience some quality time with some rare and wonderful people.
