After 50 years in storage, it was unthinkable for Fukiko Oguchi Marshall's "Pink Petal Sky" triptych to go back in the box. The Black Faun staff say a big thank you to Kumi Schock and Humboldt State University Library Dean Cyril Oberlander for finding a wall for this beautiful work. You can see it on the 2nd Floor of the HSU Library across from the Bruno Groth sculptures.
Hear ye, hear ye good people of Humboldt County. The City of Eureka made this Proclamation in recognition of Kevin Bourque on January 16, 2018!
It states….”Whereas the Black Faun Gallery, owned by Mr. Bourque, has contributed to the transformation of a chronically vacant corner of Old Town, has brought a flood of energy and enthusiasm for art in the City and serves as a hot spot of activity during Arts Alive; and
Whereas When people, either in the course of their jobs or in the course of their lives, enhance the well-being of the community, it is important to acknowledge their contributions.”
Last month we brought Monica Coyne’s blacksmithing demo to the 2nd and G sidewalk. On the corner this month we have Black Dot at the Black Faun. Artists who Animate will be screening their animated shorts in the Black Faun window during Arts Alive!
