Sandra De Vries is a Dutch artist, who has been friends with Lyons artist Jacob Leeuwenburgh (also from Netherlands) since they were in high school. When they recently re-connected after twenty years, De Vries, who now lives in Vernon, British Columbia, mentioned that her latest artistic endeavors revolved around “yarn bombs.” If you are familiar with the artist Cristo, and how he “wraps” statues, trees, buildings, bridges, and even islands with silk, yarn bombing is similar, except that De Vries uses knitted yarn toRead more: Yarn Bomb?

I’ve got the Bucolic Plague
All my thoughts
Strong root systems
Unkempt, growing, fertile
Green with expectation
Poking through the cold snow
Tilling over the brown dead winter
Expectations of possibility
Is it contagious?

Slow the Dance
Let your soul purpose be your sole purpose.
Let your arms float on the air
Greeting the universe with the
Let your knees bend
one by one
Sink into the earth
only to rise again.
Slow the dance
keep the energy high
You’ll make the right steps
For there are no mistakes
When you heart beats pure
essence of life
Slow the dance
Let the universe in.

Lyons artist Tyler Voorhees will be the featured artist at The Stone Cup beginning this Friday, March 1. His show will hang for two months, through the end of April.
From his humble beginnings in rural South Dakota, Voorhees has always been drawn to the art of storytelling. With his paintings, and the characters that inhabit them, he seeks to spin a visual yarn by drawing the viewer in with the composition, and holding their attention with the details. His mixed media paintings depict jobs now forgotten by the majority of Americans, made obsolete by advancements in technology (which are also hidden in the paintings). These occupations existed a mere century ago, yet they have fallen to the wayside in the collective memory of our society.

Soldier, soldier, strong and brave
beyond the hill and over the wave,
how do I love you? Time will tell.
Today I know that I love you well.
