Ingrid Fiksdahl King Artist Exhibition

Exhibition: 3/1/2024 through 4/30/2024

Ingrid Fiksdahl King takes the spotlight as our featured artist in March and April. Join us for a reception at The Lodge on Friday, March 1st, from 4pm to 6pm. View the exhibition and sip a complimentary glass of bubbles!

Ingrid Fiksdahl King maintained her life-long studio practice until she passed away in Berkeley, California in 2023. Her paintings captured landscapes and human bodies in motion. Fascinated by the beauty of voluminous shapes, King’s lines attempted to “catch” spatial relationships within the overall structure of the canvas. The resulting layered composition of gestural line work serves as scaffolding for abstract fields of color. She could be found here, at the Sea Ranch, “catching” a moment on a rock before the shadows shifted: comparing the raw coastline to a body in movement.

Throughout her distinguished career, painting remained the essential thread that connected King’s various contributions to the field of architecture. She considered painting to be a critical component of her creative process: where she explored the relationship between environment and structure.

Embroidering on the Photographic Image Workshop

Saturday, 5.4, from 11am - 1:30pm 

$110 per person

8 students minimum/16 students maximum, ages 18+

Have a candid photo that needs a make-over? A group portrait that doesn’t quite convey the joy of the occasion? Join artist Robert Mahar in a workshop that reimagines the family photo album and explores ways to transform vintage photographs with embroidery embellishments, inviting you to stitch on a selection of ten black and white images custom printed on a fat quarter (18” x 27”) of linen cotton canvas. Instruction will guide you through the exercise of “enhancing the seen and imagining the unseen”, equipping you to highlight aspects of costuming and setting, and introduce props and text not captured by the camera.

This workshop is a unique approach to needlework utilizing a non-traditional, free-form sampler that allows you to utilize your favorite embroidery stitches and determine their placement. Instruction in this program is well suited for adventurous beginners, however, students with more embroidery experience are encouraged to join for a fun refresher course and the opportunity to apply their skills to photographic imagery.

Please note that while you’ll experiment and play with some of Robert’s favorite vintage photos (including a couple of Sea Ranch images!), you’ll also learn how to have your own images printed on fabric for future projects, turning your own photo archive into wall-ready works of art. The class sampler is cleverly designed with border guides/cut lines - allowing you to easily machine sew finished edges at home, present your finished works in standard size ready-made frames or incorporate your embroidered photos into a large variety of fabric projects (wall-hangings, quilts, totes, throw pillows or apparel appliqué!). All materials are provided and included in the price of registration. Each material kit includes: a custom sampler depicting 10 vintage photographs, practice fabric, a limited palette of 6-strand embroidery floss, wood hoop, embroidery needle and instructional diagrams. However, if you have favorite embroidery tools or prefer specific colors of embroidery floss (6-strand or perle) you are encouraged to bring these items to the workshop.

Robert Mahar is a California-based artist and educator who thoughtfully researched and developed hands-on projects based in historical craft traditions. He’s also a proud contestant, alumni, and subsequent associate producer, on NBC’s crafting competition show Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. With an education in studio arts and art history, he has worked in a variety of creative fields including 13 years as an appraiser of modern and contemporary art.

Embark on a journey of serenity amidst the captivating landscapes of Sea Ranch, where the forest meets the ocean in a breathtaking fusion that evokes awe and wonder. Join us at The Sea Ranch Lodge farm for a transformative forest bathing session guided by a certified nature and forest therapy guide.

In this pristine coastal wilderness, where breathtaking views stretch as far as the eye can see, immerse yourself in the therapeutic benefits of nature through guided ecotherapy practices.

As you slow down and engage your senses, you'll discover the healing power of the forest and its ability to soothe the mind, body, and soul.

During this session, you'll participate in guided sensory awareness practices, moments of quiet reflection, and group sharing designed to promote integration and connection. The guide will also share tools that can be used in everyday life, making the benefits of mindfulness and meditation accessible to everyone, no matter your experience level.

Dress in weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy walking shoes. Layers are recommended, and please bring a small backpack to carry your own water.

Whether you're seeking stress relief, inner peace, or simply a deeper connection with nature, this forest bathing experience offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Join us and embark on a journey of self-discovery and renewal amidst the beauty of the natural world.

As Featured in The Today Show, Sonoma Magazine, Shondaland, and USA Today.
