“Art can be meaningful to me by artistic portrayal of critical issues facing life.”
– Jane Stanton, ‘Will We Survive”, oil
Class: Painting classes with Julia Rogoff
“I created these cufflinks for the refined gentleman. Made from two kinds of steel, hand forged and folded to create beauty in a material known for its inherent strength and toughness. Coupled with the classic elegance of silver, I believe this represents the balance and nature of a true gentleman.
It would be deprecating to say that art got me through this pandemic. Art has helped me get through life and all its challenges. This last year has just been one more rock on the pile.”
– Andrew Geaslin, “Damascus Cufflinks”, Damascus steel and silver
Classes: Forge workshops and Open Forge with Mace Vitale (10+ years)
“Art during the pandemic was learning, joy, escapism and human connection – even if only through Zoom!”
– Mary Wargo, “Sunset”, watercolor/inktense pencil
Class: Watercolor with Sharon Schmiedel

The Shop
“Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight” – John Ruskin

Shop Bishops & The Marketplace and Support GAC
There are two ways our local supporters can help GAC during the month of July. Both The Marketplace and Bishops Orchards offer shoppers the chance to “round up” all purchases, with proceeds going to support GAC educational programming.
We are so appreciative of the support from our wonderful Shoreline businesses. We encourage you to shop with them this month (and every month!).
