RAGS, Too far gone to mend: Cindy Zimmerman

Too far gone to mend, Mending is reconstruction, rag-making is deconstruction. Bring used clothing, underwear, towels, and sheets that are “too far gone to mend” –too tattered, threadbare, stained, or faded. Cindy will tear or cut off the awkward parts, then create attractive and useful rectangular shapes. You can stay to help. Leave some rags behind for others and take some from the stockpile. You might have done this anyway but you probably would procrastinate!

About the Artist

Adjunct professor, community artist, co-founder of a circus, social change activist, nonprofit and government administrator, all-around instigator, Zimmerman is the eldest of eight Catholic daughters from Oklahoma City, and became a mother while still a teenager. Kids have always figured in her art world, and she created a mural at the Golden Hill Recreation Center with 200 child collaborators, which is still on view today. She got her start as an artist at her neighborhood rec center, where nice ladies helped you glue macaroni onto cold cream jars and spray them with silver paint and got her MFA at UCSD, Visual Arts Department. Oklahoma University granted her a BFA in Fine Arts with honors before that, and she supported herself and two kids throughout her education with a series of low paying jobs, forging a lifelong commitment to social justice through education and the arts.

MOGA, the Artist's stretch: MD Ferrera

MOGA, the Artist's stretch: MD Ferrera

This workshop touches on daily journaling, creating, breathing and stretching; the importance to our general mental health as well as the benefits of utilizing these outlets as an artist. We discuss tricks, tips, using found materials to create, and the value in seeing your voice (handwriting) through free-writing, to heal and create personal goals. I encourage wearing comfy clothes, as we break with "Moga" a choreographed stretch routine that I've created, developed and continually practice myself. Journals and materials to create with are provided. Please bring a yoga mat or towel/blanket to sit on the floor.

About the Artist

Southern California based Artist, Michelle D. Ferrera took the leap to full-time Artist upon moving West. Utilizing her Fine Art degree from New Jersey, armed with years of journals filled with experiences and people, sketches and ideas, Ferrera found her medium by accident. In her Imperial Beach, garage studio, Michelle creates Original and Commissioned Figurative Fine Art, drawn freehand with pencil (and sometimes mixed media) on custom built wood panels, she builds herself. The raw wood serves as her mirror, reflecting the Artist’s words, skin, durability, vulnerability and individuality. Keeping her tools and medium minimal provides Ferrera an environment conducive to creating such personal, intimate moments and poses. “The nude figures, whether self-portrait or other, represent the vulnerable process of letting go, in hopes to build self-love and strength needed to fuel honest communication and connections.” -Ferrera
