Artist 7 is a group of artists that meets regularly to discuss upcoming shows, museum events, and new techniques and media. The group also critiques current work by each artist and commiserates on the verities of the art world.

In Abstractly Speaking, they present their current abstract work, each exploring and going in different directions.

Artist 7 has decided that 30% of all their sales will be given to Legal Services for Children in San Francisco. The group says, “We are very moved by the plight of children coming across our southern border and want to use what we do best to contribute in helping those who help them.”

“All seven of us - Valerie Corvin, Lynn Glenn, Katie Korotzer, Jan Lainoff, Pam McCauley, Roberta Milstead and Dee Tivenan would like to thank FRO Schmidt, the owner of the aRt Cottage, for this opportunity to share our work with others.”

Quixotica by Roc DeWilde

"Maya awakens from a dream; her consciousness is impressed with strong feelings of wanting. By living experiences and reasoning, she becomes aware that her most important purpose in life is to know herself – as sharing the joy and beauty of LOVE."

As part of our All About Photography exhibit for July, we have a special audio-visual presentation called Quixotica by Roc DeWilde, whose photography spans over five decades in national and international media.

Quixotica is awe-inspiring entertainment - a series of 36+ images accompanied by lyrical music. Viewers will experience a moving narrative through sight and sound, created with compelling transitions, vivid colors and pools of shadows that are beautifully designed to spark your imagination.

FRO - Owner of aRt Cottage

Mary Dunn, Photo Editor for People Magazine said of DeWilde's work, “Roc directs his subjects so masterfully that they look alive. Each picture has an anecdotal quality – they express moments.”

Let's all Van Gogh to the Parade!

Fro's art car has been covered in sunflowers! The aRt Cottage will join the Concord Art Association to ride in the July 4th Parade this week. We're celebrating a big public art project happening this summer and giving a nod to a classic, Vincent Van Gogh. Hope to see you downtown!
