Good Times Santa Cruz - ART SEEN

Stacie Willoughby ART SEEN Just like music makes the body dance, the presence of music in the dancing lines of Stacie Willoughby’s fluidly ebullient drawings is undeniable. A local artist, Willoughby’s silent outbursts of color don the streets, venues and shops of Santa Cruz via concert posters that transfer the atmospheric elements of songs onto paper. Psychedelic, bold, wispy, whispery, entangling. Such are the types of descriptive words one could apply to the work of an artist whose muse is often the sound being advertised. While her illustrations (made by pens, pencils, markers and more) are usually catching eyes sporadically around town, Willoughby will be exhibiting a collection of her work in one spot, Santa Cruz Rehearsal Studios, for the month of June. An opening reception with drinks, nibbles and, of course, live music will honor the artist and her striking images next Friday, June 4. You’ve seen the art, now meet the artist. | Linda Koffman INFO: 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 4. Santa Cruz Rehearsal Studios, 118 Coral St., Santa Cruz. Free. 425-7277.
