"FAUNA" Paintings and Mosaics by Stacey Schuett

NEW Heron Hall Art Exhibit
"FAUNA" Paintings and Mosaics by Stacey Schuett
On display May 5 through August 29, 2017
Heron Hall, Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
Opening Reception Saturday, May 20, 2017, 3:00-5:00pm
FREE. No RSVP necessary. Light snacks provided.
Artist Statement - “I’ve always been drawn to using animals and insects as subjects, for their form and grace and contrast. I mostly make pieces about local wildlife, creatures in our area or nearby. Living near the diversity of the Laguna de Santa Rosa is especially fortunate for me – endless subject matter! Life here is fully present every moment, much of it hidden and secretive, seen and unseen. It’s easy to be aware of how many of us of different species overlap and occupy the same space.” 

“Making my pieces on wooden rigid panels helps with the crackle process, and with the aged, sometimes ancient feel. Building up texture and wearing it away again gives the appearance of roughening that comes with natural aging. I use a number of different materials that often do surprising things, and I find I can’t control everything; chance insists on happening. In the mosaics, I make the tiles myself with some aim of controlling variations of color, but the technique itself is a little awkward, given to flaws and imperfections. I like the flaws. They’re reminders of the beauty of the imperfect, and the fact that all of nature is a work continually in progress. So, being reminded daily, I try to have my pieces reflect a sense of time passing, with a bit of wonder at all the mysteries involved.”

Spring Birding in the Laguna Bird Watching Adventures with L


Spring Birding in the Laguna
Bird Watching Adventures with Lisa Hug
Sundays, March 26, April 23, and May 21, 8:30am-1:00pm
Meet at Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
$45 per class. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org
Geared towards adults and older teens.
 
In this birding series, we will celebrate Spring by exploring a different non-publicly accessible corner of the Laguna each month. In March we will enjoy the wide variety of waterfowl that utilizes the deep channels of the Laguna that the winter rains have brought. During the months of April and May the resident songbirds will awaken and the colorful migrants will arrive from Central America with their vibrant songs. There will be a short PowerPoint orientation the first session. Bring binoculars, (spotting scope optional), a field guide, comfortable walking shoes, layered clothing, water and a packed lunch or snacks. We will end each session with a group lunch and make a list of the species which we encountered.

Lisa Hug originally came to California from the Midwest in 1986. She was very involved with Point Reyes Bird Observatory and eventually became a contract biologist and freelance naturalist in the mid-1990s. She has been teaching for the College of Marin, Petaluma Adult School and Point Reyes Field Institute for over a decade. She was president of Redwood Region Ornithological Society for two years and received the Martha Bentley and Ernestine Smith Award For the Dedication to Wildlife Conservation Education in 2009. She is currently a regional coordinator for the Sonoma County Breeding Bird Atlas and she just finished editing the new Birds Checklist for the Laguna de Santa Rosa which can be bought through the Laguna Foundation Store.

Close-Up and Macro Photography Workshop with professional p


Close-Up and Macro Photography Workshop 
with professional photographers Susan and Neil Silverman
Saturday, June 3, 8:00am-3:30pm
Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401
Suitable for adults and teens (teens must be accompanied by an adult).
Cost: $85. Pre-registration required: www.lagunafoundation.org


What is the difference between the “usual” good photo and an exciting, different and intriguing image? You got it, Macro and Close-up photography!!! It can open a whole new world to your photo experience, your vision and your creativity. So often we don’t stop to “smell the roses,” and often we don’t stop to really see that “rose.” This workshop will open your eyes and change your perspective to find some new and beautiful ways of experiencing the Laguna and life around you. You might find yourself lost in a whole new world; and you did not have to fall down the rabbit hole! We will have a two-hour lecture, demonstration and discussion on the techniques and challenges with close-up photography (it takes a little more than just moving your feet in close), and then we will go out and about in the theater of the Laguna with our cameras and photograph this new wide world around you. Near the end of the workshop, we will return to Heron Hall and share images and results. Participants bring their own lunch. Hot drinks and snacks are provided.

Susan and Neil Silverman are a husband-wife team who have taught and photographed together for over twenty years. Their passion behind the lens is transmitted not only through their images, but to their students as well. They have been leading their own workshops for over ten years and taught for Great American Photography Workshops for ten years; have taught for Better Photo.com, Santa Fe School, PPA affiliates, PPC, B&H Photo, Pacific North West Art School, Gualala Art Center, Santa Rosa Junior College, and many more.
