This vibrant exhibition features 22 large color photographs, chronicles the artist’s two decades of travels through Latin America, documents painted color and reveals its cultural significance.
We will discuss the stories that go along with each photograph and talk about architecture -façades, arches, columns, lintels and more. Kids will use what they have learned through visual observation and discussion to create oil pastel on board masterpieces, inspired by Jeffrey Becom’s exhibition. All materials are provided.

Date: May 4, 2013 Time: Noon to 2pm Beautiful Whale Presentation and Book Signing Event by Bryant Austin
"Photographer and conservationist Bryant Austin's breathtaking photographic project Beautiful Whale ($50.00) is the first of its kind: chronicles his fearless attempts to reach out to whales as fellow sentient beings. Featuring Austin's intimate images--some as detailed as a single haunting eye--that result from encounters based on mutual trust, this work captures the grace and intelligence of these magnificent creatures. Austin spent days at a time submerged, motionless, in the waters of remote spawning grounds waiting for humpback, sperm, and minke whales to seek him out.
As oceanographer Sylvia A. Earle says in her foreword to the book, "As an ambassador from the ocean--and to the ocean--Bryant Austin is not only a source of inspiration. He is cause for hope."

About Mystic Adventures in Big Sur
Love, death, nature, and Hollywood all play a major role in the exciting trilogy, Mystic Adventures in Big Sur, penned by J.W. Winslow, the daughter of screen legend Dick Winslow. Winslow, an internationally-respected artist who hosts a California-based television show about the art world, was inspired in her writings by real-life events and insights to create a dynamic heroine, Dyanna Falconer. Her powerful character is a world-traveling screenwriter who separates lust from love in order to find her soul mate while healing from a near-death accident.
The author writes in the tradition of Carmel’s legendary artists of the 20th century and fashions herself as a Bohemian Chic Renaissance woman. As a writer/artist/poet, Winslow has crafted a trilogy filled with adventure in the fast-paced, cut-throat world of Hollywood and the mystical, nurturing, beautiful escape of Big Sur.
The tale of Jasmine Dogs: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur (Vol. 1) and Jade Beach: Mystic Adventures in Big Sur (Vol. II and III) reveals one of self-discovery amidst tragedy, murder, sexual conquests, and the testing of the bonds of friendship and family. Her sweeping story takes us to Paris, Sicily, Los Angeles, and New York, but it always returns to the magical allure of the California coast.
“Everything is not what it seems in my books,” reveals Winslow. “I tackle some lofty subjects – love and war between the sexes and the eternal struggle for power between men and women; money as an aphrodisiac and tool in business and love; the struggles of single women in the business world; the trappings of fame; the power of sex and the influence of beauty on others; the sweetness of revenge and the glory of redemption, and the surprises of death and the power of loss.”
The books feature many themes:
“The reader comes to appreciate that manipulation and scheming to get your way is dangerous and deadly,” says Winslow.
Winslow’s character-driven, action-filled drama centers around Dyanna, who recovers from the tragic death of her fiancée while being romanced by his best friend (Jacob), a billionaire playboy who bankrolls her films. She is ambushed by a catastrophic accident, plunging 400 feet off a cliff but miraculously is nursed back to health by Native Americans in a secret cave, tended to by a doctor (Hawk) that she secretly longs for. Meanwhile others are plotting against her and Jacob -- not to mention the pesky paparazzi that follow Dyanna – leaving her to live out a soap opera-like life. The story’s climax surprises readers with an ending that spurs a new beginning.
The series of books provides a multi-media experience. A musical score is composed by Monterey native-turned-New Yorker Tom Ayres. The cover art for the books was created by Big Sur artist Erin Lee Gafill, depicting the beautiful vistas of the coast. Photographic images also bring the beauty of Big Sur to the reader. There are links to Web cameras and digital content for further exploration. Winslow’s Fresh Art Green books are printed on recycled components, including the cover and book pages, using soy ink, and linseed binding glue. In addition to an e-book version, there is also an audio book edition read by Winslow, who draws on her acting experience to deliver a passionate rendition.
