Soup is Love Project: Last Weekend to Make Bowls Benefiting Off Center!

February 3 and 4, 10am-4pm

After 12 months we have made about 800 bowls with 100 community participants. The proceeds will benefit OFF CENTER Community Arts Project.

OFF Center Community Arts Project was founded in 2001 by art therapists, artists and other community members whose vision was to have an all-inclusive arts studio where the process of making art in a supportive community and safe environment would provide healing and build community — especially for those most marginalized in our community.

Book Arts & More

On Saturday, January 27, check out at Central Features an exhibition of experimental artist-made books that prioritizes conceptual book forms, non-traditional materials, collaborative or interdisciplinary projects, and unconventional approaches to narrative, storytelling, and documentation. Boundless also includes an art zine selection curated by Marya Errin Jones.

Vicki Bolen is a printmaker, paper artist, bookbinder, and
origami artist. After many years her work naturally evolved beyond origami to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and monoprints. In 2006 I started collaborating on book arts with my life partner
Richard Wolfson, who had begun writing after the death of his wife JoAnn, in 2004. Many of his poems come from dreams and shamanic journeys.

Here is an example of one of Vicki’s handmade books.

Red Origami Earrings


I am happy to create a custom pair of earrings for you or someone special. I can also make a matching set of origami crane earrings for your bridesmaids.

Convo me and I will be happy to work with you to create a pair or pairs of earrings that meet your requirements perfectly.

I fold each origami crane by hand and stabilize it with a bit of hidden glue. After I make the cranes, I select Swarovski crystals and gold nickel-free, hypoallergenic, surgical steel findings. I then assemble the earrings when you order them.

Because I use such a small piece of paper to fold my earrings, the pattern will fall differently on each, making your earrings truly one-of-a-kind.
