the headlands center for the arts is hosting its annual winter cocktail party tonight to celebrate the announcement of the 2012 artists in residence! the center is one of the cornerstones of the bay area art community, fostering art and artists in the old military barracks on hillsides overlooking the ocean. the headlands and mt. tam are one of our favorite mini-getaways- even in my travels, i have have never seen a more beautiful landscape than this part of the coastline.
artist and hca alum, harrell fletcher, who also co-founded people’s gallery, was part of the team that chose the 2012 recipients and will be one of several speakers talking about the incoming artists’ work.
and to keep it festive, the speakeasy-style party will feature a fabulous spread by their mess hall chef, including an oyster-tasting bar, juniper & thyme house-cured bacon, and chocolate truffles by local favorite, tcho. plus the first 100 artisanal drinks by the bon vivants will be served in ceramic cups by artist, ehren tool!
