  3. Artist in Resident talk: Patricia Schaefer

    Comments Off on Artist in Resident talk: Patricia Schaefer

    Painter Patricia Schaefer will discuss a new series of paintings that explore the human body and bodies of water she plans to create as part of her 2019 artist’s residency with the Glen Arbor Arts Center. The presentation is August 30, noon at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

    Each of the GAAC’s artists-in-residence gives a conversational overview of their residency. These presentations offer a chance to hear about the resident’s project, and the process they experienced during their two-week stay. Schaefer’s GAAC residency was a chance to explore the overlay of the human body in the landscape – as well as ask questions about how human bodies and bodies of water intersect, and explore the political, environmental land existential questions that study prompts. San Francisco, California, is Schaefer’s home base.

    The GAAC artist-in-residence presentation are free and open to the public. For more information go to

    Author Heather Shumaker will join us for Story time and Craft on Wednesday, Aug 7 from 11am-11:45am. Heather will read from her book The Griffins of Castle Cary, followed by book signing and a craft. 

    Siblings Meg, Will, and Ariel Griffin are off on an adventure! They can’t wait to spend a week visiting their eccentric aunt and her giant, tongue-drooling Newfoundland dog in England. But when they finally arrive, they’re faced with a few local secrets that stir up more than a little trouble.

    Add in some very peculiar lights, strange new friends, a police chase and some stampeding sheep, and the Griffin kids are in over their heads—literally. Apparently this town has a ghost problem and the three children must race to solve the mystery before the ghosts take something that doesn’t belong to them.
    (Ages 8 and up

    Heather Shumaker grew up always wanting to be an author. She began writing books in elementary school and is now an award-winning author of several books for adults ( It’s OK Not to Share, It’s OK to Go Up the Slide and Saving Arcadia). Heather has tried many jobs including sailing on tall ships, leading llama treks, and recycling at the South Pole, Antarctica, but she likes writing best.

    Three friends embark upon a hero’s journey, questing for a distant treasure. The way is arduous and fraught with peril, yet the trio boldly presses on. Much to their relief, help comes along when they least expect it-a guiding bright light, help from a thoughtful stranger, fellowship in a broken village. But is the kindness of strangers enough to help the three friends survive vicious storms, fend off fire breathing monsters, and conquer their own fears?  (Ages 5 and up)
