Craft Coffee + Art Fair | April 20th from 12 – 9PM
Join us on April 20th for our Craft Coffee + Art Fair. This year, we’ll be featuring art in different forms to take you on an artist journey like never before.
The event will feature works of art from:
Carolyn Lazor, Female Form Painter | While learning to draw and paint at 30, Carolyn soon found the subject that would be the focus of her art. The female form. It offers myriad expressions of emotion and sentiment. If there were a wish, then it would be for the viewer to feel that many emotions and sentiments are common to all of us. While the 7 pieces she’s showing may at first appear unconnected, they are also the inseparable yin-yang…restriction-freedom, fearfulness-assuredness, insecurity-poise, shame-grace.
Gabriela, Painter + Tattoo Artist | Gabriela is professional tattoo artist stepping into the practice of sacred body art. She sees the power in the symbols and totems we choose to adorn ourselves with and approaches each tattoo in a sacred manner. Spirituality, mysticism, and nature are strong influences in her creations and her life. Gabriela is a painter and artist before anything else; her understanding of colour and composition is strongly showcased in her designs and placement for each tattoo. She works with the curvature of the body to create custom pieces that move in a seamless flow.
Kit Noble, Photographer | A Nantucket based acclaimed photographer, Kit Noble, a Nantucket based critically acclaimed photographer captured moments on the ocean for his Nosara collection.
Eric Kurzbard, Painter | Eric is a Nosara based painter who creates vibrant paintings and murals using eclectic colours and forms that speak volumes within the community.
