P-sign Paul House Guest for 2/22/11

Taken by Gabrielle Cianfrani

Local artist, musician, theater person and sand drawer, Paul House came up to the station to talk about his upcoming photograph installation and opening reception at the Windmill Cafe, March 4th.

Paul has been creating giant sand drawings at several beaches in Santa Cruz for nearly a decade. He was inspired to pick up the stick and draw by the sadness of war, particularly the US in Iraq.

The picture on the side was taken by a facebook friend while on a trip from New Jersey in ’08. How small the world?  This coincidence epitomizes the strength in the symbology of Paul’s art and its ability to move people deeply.

We talked about Paul’s beginnings of practicing this art that gets swept away, an impermanence that is site specific, activist and dialogic.  He shared stories of people walking away changed after speaking with him.

The photographs of Paul’s sand drawings will begin hanging at the Windmill Cafe (our local purveyor of great healthy food and art gallery for the mind)  March 1st and be up for the duration of the month.

The reception is March 4, 2011 at 7pm (a part of our First Friday Art tour – a fabulous Santa Cruz tradition) at 21231 East Cliff Drive near 13th. For more information visit the Windmill Cafe and/or call 831-464-4698.

Here’s a little movie about P-sign Paul that was done a few years ago by Santa Cruz CCTV.

Carmen Kubas Guest for Feb 15, 2011

Carmen Kubas came onto the show to talk about her art activism as founder and CEO of Lightfoot Industries. (LFI)  This unique local business for sustainable vocational training helps “at risk” (a term that Carmen does not like to use) teenagers learn all life skills while discovering their life passion and “soul craft.”

How does this work? LFI is a social enterprise solution that provides entrepreneurial training for teenagers. They use a holistic approach that involves a restaurant, retail line, and innovative curriculum to model social, environmental, and fiscal responsibility. In conjunction with Delta High School at Cabrillo College, this year is the pilot program and will last one year. The first cohort is now in their second half of the year.  LFI has future plans for the program to be 2 to 4 years.

LFI hosts a weekly supper club at the Backstage Lounge, next to the Rio Theater on Soquel and Seabright, every Friday and Saturday beginning February 18th and will run until May with two seatings per night, the first at 6pm and the second at 8pm.

For more information and to get advanced tickets (highly recommended because the dinners usually sell out), visit their site and FaceBook page.  Also, the Good Times recently published an article entitled “Teenage Dream.”

Along with a sumptuous five course meal, the Friday night supper clubs will feature guest speakers.  This week will feature, former AoA guest, Rocky Romano to talk about his Go Big Project.
