Ida Mae – Community Service Project

CRMS Senior Symposium- Activism Through Art 

Ida’s Mission:

I’m planning on working with Reina @the.project.shop to create digitally crafted work that will be a series of advocating indigenous social justice issues, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. For the month of May I would like to sell and distribute my works of art in hopes to give the proceeds to one of the MMIW organizations. My goals while working on this project is to make myself familiar with a digital program called Procreate (end goal to be proficient for future projects with producing digital art), understand the business side of marketing, donate funds to help out an indigenous focused organization and sell my art in a professional manner.

Danny Carreno / The Art Base Mentorship

“I’m a senior at Roaring Fork High School, throughout this amazing opportunity I plan to target mixed media and create various pieces that are based upon self revelation. I am most excited to be working with Reina Katzenberger, a professional artist with the ability to create within high levels of skill and character whom I know will guide me, inspire me, and motivate me to become a greater artist day by day. Therefore, I am also excited to expand my skill sets in art as I bring myself to open my mind and soul deeply, broadly. This will allow me to create pieces that uncover more about myself through my art.”

Q32020 Special Edition in honor of Angus Graham

This special edition of the Quarterly Club shirt is a celebration of Angus Graham the enduring impact he has had on our creative community. The artwork on this shirt is a collage of elements directly pulled from his writing and ceramic works created during his time with us as a highly involved member of the arts community in the Roaring Fork Valley.  He had a deep love of pottery and the human connection it creates. After his passing in August 2017, the Carbondale Clay Center (with support from his family and friends) created the Angus L. Graham Memorial Fund, which will serve to benefit future developing artists through scholarships, outreach programs, and supplies for educational activities. We encourage you to learn more about the Carbondale Clay Center and the Memorial Fund at carbondaleclay.org

George Stranahan and the Kitchen Table.

I am excited to continue expanding my thought leader series and honored to announce the most recent addition, our very own community leader, George Stranahan. Since meeting him as a young child his impact has been profound and will be lifelong.

A true champion of service-based learning I have learned much from George and have been inspired by his commitment to the importance of conversation, often best held around the kitchen table.

The hand drawn portrait is haloed with chalk markings by George’s hand.

Design Process for Q2 2020

Words from the artist:

As an artist, participating in the Quarterly Club has opened a new window of possibilities. I had the facility, support and mentorship to learn a new printmaking technique that I would not have otherwise had the resources for. It’s been such a privilege to be a student again and learn a new form of expression. I hope you all subscribe

Q2 2020 Featured Artist and Design

Vanessa Porras

Words from the artist:

“I’ve learned as much about screen printing as I have learned about myself through this process. When to be soft and when to be strong. To practice patience when things don’t go as planned and to be persistent. I have to leave ego at the door and come in as a child ready to play and learn.”
