Updates on our artists...

 The Bayfield Library will be displaying the artwork of Adele and her son, Mike Kurtz for the next three months... she sent us this quick expanation:

If you can, stop by and see the unusual work we are creating. My newer work is on copper and aluminum with resin coatings set off by floater frames and wide sintra mats. Mike works with fractals that are dazzling. He may teach a fractal workshop at the library if there is enough interest. I'll help since he's only a freshman at Bayfield High School.  Check out my site too and drop us a note to let us know what you think, such as which you like best... places to show... since much of what we are doing is experimental and new for us.  We're heading for new horizons. Thanks!!!

Also, John Sheedy and the Tijuana Project have been accepted into the Durango Independent Film Festival taking place March 3 thru 7... check it!
