Warm art from hard woods

As a sculptor, former Santa Clarita resident Scott Bruckner started working with cast-off construction materials. Now he uses exotic woods like Cocobola and African Mahogany for his award-winning sculptures.

Traveling in Europe, living on both coasts, and the works of Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson have influenced Bruckner’s art. Enjoy an enlightening and fun conversation with Scott Bruckner.

Thursday, September 22, 2016 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library

Art for Life

Unlike many artists, Sandy Fisher did not spend her early years studying art. However, she was always creating, working on embroidery, macramé, stained glass, and finally photography and painting. But it was not until surviving her second cancer diagnosis that Sandy became a full time artist.

Motivated by nature, faith, and a deep love for life, this past president of the Santa Clarita Artists Association will share what moves her to create. Join us for a touching conversation with one of Santa Clarita’s inspiring artists.

Thursday – August 25, 2016 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library
