This Book Club: On Art and Mindfulness by Enrique Martínez Celaya 

In On Art and Mindfulness, world-renowned artist and celebrated teacher Enrique Martínez Celaya shares his views and advice on the art-making process, the development of a practice, the management of obstacles, and the day-to-day choices we must make in order to remain creative and honest. Drawn from the actual sold-out workshops that Martínez Celaya taught over nine years at the venerable Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado, these concise teachings are relevant not only to artists but to anyone wishing to live a mindful, productive life.

September 23 Handmaid’s Tale (The Graphic Novel)

About the artist:

Tara L Tieso is an abstract artist who lives and paints in the historic arts Lowertown neighborhood of Saint Paul, on the mighty Mississippi. She works in encaustic, an ancient beeswax and resin medium fused to its substrate with a torch.  Her work is bold, yet intimate.

Tara is Board President of nationally celebrated WARM, Women’s Art Resources Minnesota – where she works with other women in the arts to steward the rich 40-year feminist legacy of Minnesota’s brilliant women artists, and ensure that WARM is part of the lives of creative girls and women far into the future.

A grateful 2011 recipient of the McKnight Foundation-funded Metropolitan Regional Arts Council’s Next Step Grant, 2012 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, and one of 30 ArtSage Minnesota Artists for 2013, her work hangs in collections in the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, and Philadelphia.
