A collection of places where art inspires and lives in each of us. Whether wandering a gallery or sitting on your front porch, art is there if you look closely. Let this inspire you to look a little longer at the beauty and awe in the everyday-ness of life.

Freeform Yarnbomb by Barbara Steele

Afterwards you can choose to create your own yarnbomb to place your mark on the Windsor Art Center. Knitting or crocheting experience helpful but not necessary. You are welcome to make your own worsted weight 4 inch yarnbomb square(s) before you come using Size 7 or 8 knitting needles and/or Size H crochet hooks. Bring your own knitting needles or crochet hooks and yarn will be provided for squares you want to make in the workshop.
Expressiones presents San Francisco-based Peruvian artist, Walter Guerra Ostolaza. Walter studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Peru and then specialized in Art Conservation. Since 1985 he has participated in several choral groups finding delight in musical interpretation. He is passionate about investigating histories and his passion is reflected in the two series he is presenting in this exhibit. Through the beauty of his own iconography and fantasy, these histories are translated into cubist expressionist forms, colors and shapes.
