Members who had begun meeting in a private home three years earlier purchased a site among orange groves at Garfield Avenue and Colorado Boulevard in 1885 and built a […]

Survivors of Kent State

Survivors of Kent State

“Here I am again, dodging bullets.” So said Randy Gardner to The Arizona Republic. The first time, before “again,” the date was May 4, 1970 and twenty-eight Ohio National Guardsmen “fired approximately 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four (Kent State University) students and wounding nine others.” The protest that day was […]

Artist Residency at The Andalucia with Holly Boruck

HP: What is this residency, exactly? Through what organization, for how long, and are there any requirements? Holly: In general, an ‘artist residency’ is where an artist goes outside of their normal studio space and inhabits an alternative space so that they can have time to experiment with materials, explore ideas, do research on future […]

Spring Eats & Perfect Transplanting Weather

Spring Eats & Perfect Transplanting Weather

All that winter rain has become blooming and eating wonders in our gardens. Aside from the assorted greens—bok choy, broccoli, chard, kales, and lettuces—that we’ve been enjoying all winter, now there are artichokes and peas and beets to center our meals and munchies.

Adult Woodworking Class

Adult Woodworking Class

The smell of wood after a fresh saw, the feel of a file in our hand, fingers running along the grain—we love working with wood. Don’t get the wrong idea, we’re no woodworker. Our claim to fame (because a friend loves it and wants to make one too) is our office desk, made because we couldn’t […]
