Check out this Commonpath node to see pictures and snappy comments by local HOT photographer KYLEDELMAR when he visited the reception for my show at Chico State entitled You Are What You Eat

Couple of videos by Thomasin Saxe

There is nothing crazy that is going to happen in these videos but you are welcome to watch them. They are both from my You Are What You Eat show. The first one as people start to show up and the second when I'm answering questions (but you can't hear me say anything).

CNR review

Check out the Studio Tour review in the Chico News & Review where the 46 is featured:

live painting

I will be participating in a live painting extravaganza with fellow 46 studio member Janice Porter and encaustic painting goddess Cynthia Schildhauer. We will be painting to the live funk music of the David Elke Trio at Westside Green (a new green building subdivision). Our paintings will be auctioned at the end of the night as a benefit to BEC, the Chico Nature Center, and KZFR. Also on tap: free food, free wine, and a screening of the award-winning short comedy “The Cubicle.”
