Bring your favorite young person (Newborn - Age 4) to the Studio for some dancing, shaking and singing! Our teacher Emily will hand out shakers and drums and lead us in song with her ukelele. We'll have a mix of traditional kid songs like Head, Shoulders Knees and Toes as well as parent favorites from artists like Bob Marley. We offer free coffee to our lovely caregivers. $10 per child, $5 each additional sibling.
In our Spring Break art camp, kids will enjoy dynamic, inspiring and fun-filled days. One day they might learn how to silkscreen a cool image on a piece of found fabric, or paint watercolors of landscapes. Another day they'll make spin art or enjoy action painting. We'll play, have fun, go to the park (weather permitting) and create lots of art!
During this full-day art session, kids will have fun while engaging in artistic play. We will explore a variety of materials and techniques including repurposed objects, paints, glue, markers, watercolor, screen-printing, action painting and more. All of our hands-on activities promote discovery and exploration. What most families have mentioned about the art created in class is that it is loaded with fantasy and whimsical imagery, influenced by Miguel’s Oaxacan roots.

La Bodega Gallery is pleased to present Tartan
an exhibition of new work by John Richey.
Tartan will be exhibited from November 10th thru December 5th.
Opening reception Friday, November 10th from 7-10 pm.
This exciting new exhibition of vibrant ‘flannel’ shirts, limited edition fine art prints, and hand-painted video animations fully envelops the gallery in a raucous fray of color, pattern, and movement. The title refers to the artist’s obsessive use of patterned imagery consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors. This collection of work seeks to allow elements of chance and flexibility into a labor-intensive practice that grapples with the transformative nature of information; including information retention and loss. By working back-and- forth between, and with different combinations of hand-made and digitally fabricated elements, Tartan investigates the physical or conceptual glitches that occur in the spaces between human and digitally rendered processes.
John Richey is a visual artist who creates work using themes and images borrowed from various personal collections. Originally from southwestern Arizona, he holds degrees in combined media from the University of Arizona and the University of California, San Diego. He has exhibited domestically and abroad and was profiled as part of Art Forum Internationals "Best of 2004" roundup. He has attended artist residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta, Canada, the Bronx Museum of the Arts AIM Program, and most recently the Studios at MASS MoCA residency in North Adams, MA. Over the past 13 years, in addition to his active studio practice, Richey has held various professional titles at New York galleries and fine art institutions including Marian Goodman Gallery, Greene Naftali Gallery, the Keith Haring Foundation, and Pace Gallery.
Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a time to honor and remember our family, friends, ancestors (and even pets!) who have passed. One of the most important pre-Hispanic holidays, it's rooted in the Mexican belief that death is a natural part of life and it's important to maintain our bonds to those who have died. Come join us as we make our family and community altar, eat Mexican food, make art, enjoy music and short films, and make special offerings.
