November First Friday with Courtney Kalinowski and Baizaar

  • Home/Work 1100 Soquel Avenue Santa Cruz, CA, 95062 United States (map)

Join us this First Friday for an out of this world exhibit by Courtney Kalinowski, plus a jewelry and clothing trunk show with traveling boutique Baizaar.

Kalinowski's work focuses on patterns. She often experience phosphenes, patterns that occur when one’s eyes are closed, during meditative states. These patterns present themselves as complex neon and pastel patterns that are in constant motion. "Much of my work is also influenced from various lucid dreaming experiences that I continue to explore. I am interested in what catalyzes this sensory phenomena and how these subconscious visual imprints can be embodied as objects and visual patterns."

To compliment Kalinowski's work, Baizaar will bring some of the jewelry and accessories found during their travels around the world. Baizaar works with skilled artisans and small businesses in Nepal, Thailand, Bali, India, and Turkey who handcraft, from natural and raw materials, the brand's one of a kind and small production pieces. Baizaar prioritizes ethical sourcing and supports Fair Trade practices. Come by and find something special.
