Join Maternal Mitochondria for a presentation on June 8th, from 1-3pm, in the Santa Fe Community College Boardroom. We will be speaking to the members of the Santa Fe Book Arts Group about our collaborative work, community projects, and how and why we utilize suminagashi along with poetry in our art. This event is free and open to the public, you do not have to be a member of BAG to come! We look forward to seeing you there.
Come join us for the 2019 Santa Fe Japanese Cultural Festival!

Maternal Mitochondria will be at this year’s Japanese Cultural Festival! Catch us on Saturday, May 11th at the Santa Fe Convention Center. We’ll be doing a demonstration/workshop combo on the Japanese art of suminagashi, or ink painting. There will also be lots of performances, vendors, and Japanese food! Maternal Mitochondria will be there from 11am-3pm, but the festival itself runs from 9:30am-5pm. Admission is $5 for adults, and free for children under 12. Visit the website for more information.
This collage piece will be in the upcoming Arts and Design Showcase at Santa Fe Community College! The non-juried student shows are always my favorite. It should be fun!
Not art related, but homesteading instead! I will be teaching a 4-hr workshop on February 9th on how to start your own little backyard flock. Sign up through the continuing ed department at Santa Fe Community College! Only $49.
Suminagashi in the Park was covered in the Reporter! Check it out here.
Come by the Railyard Park to hang out with us at 3!
Suminagashi in the Park will be up at the Railyard Park this Saturday! Come say hi. Here is a copy of the letter we sent to the participants–
Thanks to all the workshop participants who created suminagashi and poetry in the Railyard.
The pieces will be hanging in the park—informal opening Sat Sept 8, 3-5 pm.
We will be sitting outside the community classroom to say hi and direct you. We have woven together your words to make a long communal poem. You might not be able to identify your exact words or suminagashi but you are indeed part of the spirit of this mosaic. It is all of us together.
To find the installation:
At the community classroom face south, (your back to Paseo de Peralta). Walk towards the rainbow compass sculpture. Look for a group of evergreens. Discover our art and poetry!
It will be up for a month, so come by at your convenience. Bring your friends and enjoy a stroll!
We’ll be in touch if anything changes.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the “Water Sound” show! We had a good time with some good eats and lots of sumi!
Gearing up for the workshop at Zephyr, starts at 5! Hope you to see some of you there. The address is Zephyr Community Art Studio, 1520 Center Dr, # 2. It’s a little hard to find but Google directions are accurate. Come make some art with us!
