Artists’ Col­lec­tive (Elk)

Rachel Lahn is the fea­tured artist at the Artists’ Col­lec­tive in Elk for the month of July.

“My paint­ings and di­men­sional con­struc­tions are about move­ment flow­ing into shapes of color and light. They are re­flec­tions of my feel­ings, trav­els and count­less tran­si­tions,” she said. “When I need shape and color in­spi­ra­tion for a piece, I go out­side and ab­sorb the life and light in the plants, Red­wood trees, moun­tains, ocean and sun­light that sur­round me. I paint and draw the en­er­gies and shapes of na­ture.”

Lahn’s work can also be seen at the Pren­tice Gallery in Men­do­cino, the Men­do­cino Art Cen­ter and her stu­dio ( by ap­point­ment) in An­der­son Val­ley. See more of Rachel’s work at ab­strac­tart­men­do­

MAC fea­tures Bay Area Bas­ket Mak­ers on­line through Aug. 3

The Bay Area Bas­ket Mak­ers (BABM) guild was founded in 1984 by Max­ine Kirmeyer and Jude Silva to sup­port and fur­ther in­ter­est in bas­ketry as a craft and art form. The guild serves as a source of in­for­ma­tion and as a means of com­mu­ni­ca­tion among bas­ket­mak­ers, pro­vid­ing in­spi­ra­tion and friend­ship. They wel­come bas­ket­mak­ers of all lev­els and ex­per­tise, from am­a­teurs to pro­fes­sion­als.

To cre­ate their bas­kets, mem­bers of the Bay Area Bas­ket Mak­ers use a wide va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als, from the tra­di­tional reed, splint, pine nee­dles, plants, kelp, pa­per, and gourds to more ex­otics like hog gut, fish skin and fish bones, horse­hair, fleece, wire and wire mesh, to re­us­able finds of plas­tic bags and yarns — em­ployed in tech­niques of coil­ing, plait­ing, twin­ing, knot­ting, loop­ing, felt­ing, rand­ing and more.
