Kathryn Kain of San Francisco, Calif. shared her paintings and sketches of “Outdoors close up.” She also did a carved wood block demonstration of an amanita mushroom. Kain and Ravenscroft were two of the eight residents who spent three-to-six week this summer at the new writers and artists retreat along West Creek. Part of their residency includes a community show or project. Others have held readings or workshops.
