MCAA’s next "Meet the Artist" is the third lecture in this premier series, from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm at the Grace Hudson Museum. The featured artist is photographer Claudia Holt and the theme is "Connecting with the SOUL of the land ... one photographer's journey with the Northern California landscape."
The artist states "As I walk these trails where I live, an ordinary rock or tree might catch my attention because of the way the light moves across its surface. Something vaguely familiar in that image wakes me out of a slumber, saying, 'Listen to this one!' If I keep my eyes, ears and heart open, my sense of belonging to this land deepens and eventually expands to include the planet and the entire cosmos. By taking photographs of the land, I capture its timeless stories, so others can feel connected to the soul of the place, too."
Same day, same place, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm, Grace Hudson Museum hosts an illustrated talk, "The Dean of Wildflowers," by historian Dot Brovarney, focusing on the life and career of notable botanist and horticulturalist, Carl Purdy.
