  This April's Art after Dark is going to be jam packed with entertainment! Bambu Batu will be featuring a local artist Linda Harrison, she makes small shrines out of matchbooks and eyeglass cases. Here is a little bit of her story....A recent "transplant" to the Central Coast from Nevada, Linda Harrison worked in fiber arts as a weaver and basket-maker for over 30yrs. She is greatly influenced by the landscape of the southwestern desert, and Native American culture. More recently after a stay in San Antonio Texas she became fascinated with Hispanic spiritual traditions and images. The "niche" or personal altar has been used for hundreds of years for devotional focus, and as a traditional and forthright expression of individual faith and devotion. The "portable" and other small devotional altar is not unique to the Hispanic culture,but may be found in many expressions throughout the world. She has interpreted the "niche" by intermingling traditional religious/spiritual images and themes, with a variety of diverse images inviting the viewer to make their own personal associations.

  We will also have Jessica Darling who is a mystic, clairvoyant and tarot reader from San Diego. She is well versed in the spiritual arts having found her calling in 2009. Elemental divination, ancestral guidance, intuitive astrology, and cosmic witchcraft are just a few ways to describe how Jessica Darling helps her clients achieve the piece of mind much needed in this hectic world. She was with us last Art after Dark and was busy all night so come early to sign up for a reading.

  Harry Farmer will also be with us doing personal Astrology readings for people, so if you would like a reading make sure you figure out the exact time of your birth so Harry can divine your future in the stars!

  Last but not least our favorite local crooner will be with us Anthony Roselli of the 'Zen Mountain Poets'. He will be here to set the mood with his ever evolving fantastic gypsy folk tunes.
