Linda Christensen – Painter
Linda Christensen paints rich colorful images of the figure, blending the freedom of her abstract sensibility while portraying the emotional moment in human pose. She enjoys challenging herself with obstacles in a composition and venturing forward in the unknown to search for a creative solution, an intentional process of art mirroring the painter’s life.
Dag Weiser – Multimedia Artist
Dag Weiser works in a variety of media including oil, pastel, ink, bronze, collage, and very often cardboard gaining him the moniker “Mr. Cardboard.” His creative works include music, sound collage, as well as collaborations with dance and theater groups. He is “one of Santa Cruz’s most daring and mischievous artists, a playful yet committed provocateur whose work often shines with pointed political messaging and irreverent humor.”
Juan R. Fuentes – Printmaker & Social Activist
Juan Fuentes is an artist/activist in support of the global movement for social change. His posters and relief prints address many issues relating to communities of color, social justice, racism and international struggles for liberation. His beautiful designs have been translated into three monumental mosaic murals of the ongoing Watsonville Brillante Project installed outside the Watsonville Civic Plaza Parking Garage.

Adon Valenziano, sculptor, creates elegant naturalistic images he terms “biometamorphs.” Using a combination of bronze, wood and glass the images are deeply rooted in the natural world in combination with the synthetic or machine world.
Victoria May, multimedia artist, constructs highly-crafted conceptual objects pairing contrasting found, discarded materials that often emphasize dichotomies like crude and delicate, hand and machine, speaking to the contradictions we witness daily.
Kathleen Crocetti, prolific multimedia artist has a dual studio and public art practice. Her studio work explores a long-standing fascination with optics, color and light. Her public art projects continue to beautify our cities and demonstrate how art has the power to bring us together for the greater good.
