Cedars eNews, Issue 1    January 2017

Dear Friends of Cedars,

Happy 2017!  I'd like to welcome you to our first issue of Cedars eNews. Please take the opportunity to see just a few of the events that Cedars will be involved in this year.   This is just a beginning, so watch for more news from us as 2017 moves forward. Thank you, our loyal Cedars supporters, for your continued commitment to supporting creative, productive and joyous lives for individuals at Cedars.

I hope that you are as excited about our new Cedars look and feel as we are. We launched our new website and Cedars video, "The Best Expression", late last year and are thrilled that so many of you are as enthusiastic as we are as we look towards our 100-year anniversary in 2019.  There will be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved!

I hope that you will join us at one of our upcoming events this year, whether it's the Hands & Earth Farm Stand opening on May 17th in downtown San Anselmo, one of our six Artist Within receptions, starting on February 10th, or as a supporter in May of Cedars 30th year participating in the Bay Area Human Race. I hope you will continue your involvement with us this year and I always look forward to hearing from you.

Please follow us on Facebook/cedarslife, as we will be posting updates there as well.


Executive Director, Cedars

Tom Schmidt: Cedars 2017 Marin Open Studios Featured Artist

Tom is an abstract expressionist with an interest in creating realistic works. He prefers to use watercolor and fluid acrylic in a multi-colored palette. He paints slowly and methodically, inspired by shape and form. His art is intuitively created from a quiet free flowing depth. Along with creating colorful transcendent art at the Cedars Fine Art Studio, Tom also attends the Textile Art Collaborative where he works in the garden.

February 10: Artist Within: Exhibit Opening and Artist Reception

We're thrilled to announce that our 2017 Artist Within art receptions and exhibitions kick off on Friday, February 10th.

In our first exhibition, "Featured Artists", we will be showing the works of Toni Johnston, Nonie Hall, Tom Schmidt, John Peterson, Greg Gazzano, Leah Magnotti, Iris Linssen and Lowell Edelman.

All of these artists' work span the spectrum in style and substance and exemplify the raw beauty that comes from a brushstroke and uninhibited spirit.
