Storytelling through Photography

On Wednesday, March 6th at 7pm, The Cube will host Mike Holtby as he presents: Storytelling through Photography. Holtby will have just returned from an assignment with the Jimmy Nelson Foundation, photographing the Hadzabe trip in Tanzania; one of the last hunter-gatherers whose population numbers just a few thousand. He will also show photos and video clips of his experience with the initiation of young men into the crocodile culture in Papua New Guinea. Holtby has traveled to forty-two countries and has focused his photography on indigenous cultures and wildlife.

Creative Minds . . . . it's an art thing!

Stapleton Artists - a non-profit organization - has a vision to promote and provide an inclusive art community with member activities, art shows, art education, workshops, programs, and our annual open studios event.

We have developed a program of talks, demonstrations, dialog, and events called:

Creative Minds . . . . it’s an art thing.

How to approach a gallery for representation. 

presented by Lin Clark

Lin opened gallery 825 Art on Santa Fe Drive in 2002 and moved to the Town Center in Stapleton to open Art & Framing at Stapleton in 2006, which she ran until closing at the end of 2014. In addition to her hands-on experience, much of her knowledge regarding galleries came from a mentor, Sandy Carson of Sandy Carson Gallery. Sandy had been in the gallery business for over 30 years and her knowledge was invaluable to a novice, Lin Clark.  
Lin Clark has always loved art and artists. She believes art is the universal language crossing all boundaries and the artist is the voice. Lin says, “To see an artist create pieces that touch the viewer’s imagination and emotions is magical”.

"Creativity takes courage."  Henri Matisse
