Santa Cruz’s multi-talented actress and recent UCSC graduate, Katelyn Laird came into KZSC on July 24, 2013 to talk on Artist on Art about her acting, singing and dancing.

Katelyn will be performing in Cabrillo Stage’s production of Oklahoma, the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s story, song and dance. Set in a Western Indian territory at the turn of the century, the high spirited rivalry between the farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and the sinister Jud Fry vie for the affection of Laurey, a winsome farm girl. Oklahoma’s multi-award winning depiction of the pioneering men and women of the American Southwest is a joyful classic for the whole family.

This musical event is presented at the Crocker Theater July 26 – August 18, 2013 with 7:30 Evening performances and Saturday and Sunday at matinees 2:00pm.

Steve Addi

Screen shot 2013-07-06 at 1.56.45 PMArtist, sculptor, educator and musician, Steve Addi of Artscape Productions came onto Artists on Art, June 26th, to talk about his current project, a mobile metal smithing sculpture creating machine.

Steve begins his road trip August 2013 and will be giving workshops and educational seminars as well as creating new sculpture wherever he can. He makes large pieces, sometimes monumental in size, using steel and glass. He randomly places the two media together and then composes until he views it as balanced and complete. He loves combining the solidity and longevity of steel with the fragility of glass.

Steve sees art as a way to of tapping into a higher consciousness, as man is the only earthly being who creates as a way to communicate and express. One of the goals of his life is to promote this ideal.
