If you missed the opening at StudioSC, 1010 Fair Street, last Friday, you’ll want to be sure to keep your ears open for the next one. It was part of the successful “First Friday Series,” Santa Cruz’s homegrown art crawl. 1010 Fair is a ways from the downtown scene, but with a modern edgy space, photography of five local photographers, each with their individual posse, the chemistry was right, and the people found their way. DJ Fox mixed a sonic backdrop of funky down-tempo grooves. Good fashion, food, and drinks. Naomi Gardner was the first to rent the space and has given it it’s contemporary style. Her beautiful portraits hang with clips on the walls. She has put together a cooperative of photographers with a mission statement that encourages collaboration and networking. Other photographers are Kerrie Boerem, Jefferson Peak, John Finch, and yours truly, Poppy de Garmo. Our work added spark to the walls of the halls of 1010 Fair Street. Look forward to future gatherings of this creative bunch.
