Palo Santo...

Now at Radiance in bulk!

Palo Santo, or 'Holy Wood' or 'Sacred tree' is a natural aromatic incense used for centuries by the South American First Nations and appreciated by many for its wonderfully calming influence. It helps to create an overall peaceful and purifying effect.

Radiance supports sustainable harvesting methods; so we are pleased to report that this Palo Santo is harvested under
government supervision by the native peoples of the Amazonian region of South America.

Our supplier says, "The forest is our home. It is our garden. Long before we ever even contemplated becoming a forest products business our respect for the ancient and deep woods and fertile deserts was thoroughly established. We have consciously chosen to deal measurably and conscientiously with the forest and the desert and to always give back to show our appreciation... and operate under the premise of low impact methods of harvest."

ArtsWalk Spring 2011

Friday, April 22nd

Featured Artists: Heather Taylor and Lynn Grotsky; also Lincoln Elementary 

Heather Taylor has been a commissioned artist for 15 years, creating art for public and private viewing. She has specialized in mural work for medical offices as well as schools, public libraries, state organizations, museums, and city spaces.

Heather works in acrylic for her murals, using watercolor, pen, gold and silver leaf, graphite, pastel, mosaic and collage as required in her public and private work.

Lynn Grotsky at It's Beadiful! started making torched beads about seven years ago. Always having been drawn to watercolors and glass art she realized she had a visceral response to the fluidity of colors and textures. After taking a glass blowing glass where she failed miserably due to an eye problem that prevents her from having depth perception, she realized she could compensate by blowing glass on a smaller level. Thus, she started doing lampwork, using a small torch that she can sit close to and using short mandrels, helping her to keep the melting glass level. Watching the glass melt together into varying degrees of molten designs became a meditative way to relax and and quiet her mind. Three years ago she also discovered fused glass and is just beginning her foray into stained glasswork.

Working on the smaller level allowed Lynn to let go of most of the depth perception problems, and use her love of texture and color to create whimsical jewelry filled with irregular shapes and interesting imperfections mixed in with a bold array of striking color combinations.

Lincoln Elementary

An annual favorite! Come view the creative works of our future generations. Mixed Media from Michi Thacker’s 4th and 5th graders will be on display.
