Projects at Creekside Arts

Calder and Rich

 Calder (above, front) and Rich (above, back), both part of Creekside Arts Collective, have been preparing accommodations for additional artists–that is, when they aren’t playing bocce!

Calder is designing and building another tiny house for our next residency. Rich is working on the studio space. They wouldn’t let me show you their work in progress so, here is what you’ll see from the workspace (from the railing) and the tiny house (facing the chickens)

Gallery Marceau Verdiere

Marceau Verdiere, visual artist, arts educator and member of Creekside Arts Collective, gave us a glimpse of the entrance to the studio he is currently renovating. It will include a small art gallery for the works of Creekside resident artists.

I am grateful for all the good a community like our neighborhood and Creekside Arts can achieve with just kindness, care, hope and art and for all our cool new friends: the wonderful resident artists who've enriched our little corner of Humboldt.

Metal Sculpting Equipment

Creekside Arts is grateful to Eric Furman and Aline Faben, longtime artists, art lovers and collectors, for the gift of metal sculpting equipment and funds to help build a workshop and storage space to give it a home at Creekside Arts.
Eric is a metal sculptor and weaver. 
Aline is a writer and weaver.

Creekside Arts is  designed and created to bring together artistic residencies, workshops and performances. Our goal is to create an environment in which creative artists and audiences interact in a positive and structured way to learn from and inform each other and then bring that learning into the larger Humboldt community. To that end Creekside Arts is committed to equity and welcomes people from diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences.
