New art co-op opens downtown

From page A11 | July 14, 2013 |

Art-is-Davis — a new art co-op, working studio and art teaching space — opened its doors in downtown Davis on July 1. It is a space for regional artists to work, teach, display their art and interact directly with the public.

The co-op is at 222 D St.,  between the Pence Gallery and The Mustard Seed. It will be open daily to the public, and community members are invited to drop in to view artwork, chat with artists and participate in classes.

Founders Seana Burke and Marieke de Waard, both local art teachers, are offering figure drawing and painting sessions, pen-and-ink sketching and drawing fundamentals classes, and will be adding more to the schedule in the coming weeks.

The name Art-is-Davis finds its roots in the Latin term Natura Artis Magistra, which means “Nature is the teacher of art.” It reflects the founders’ philosophy that we are all born with the potential to be creative.

“Our goal is to have a space where local artists are actively engaged in the process of making art and invite the community to join us,” Burke said. “We are excited to offer a semi-private studio space and a communal teaching area in the heart of downtown Davis.

“We have created a beautiful space and are ready to have new artists join the co-op. We are also open to suggestions about workshops, music, or any other events that can benefit the community and make our art co-op a success.”
