On November 3, during Arts Alive! (6 to 9 p.m.), we’re celebrating the opening of Peggy Irvine’s new show of botanical watercolors and drawings.

As in past Novembers, we’re having an heirloom apple tasting, and this year Hospice of Humboldt is going to pour wine (donations accepted!). Drew Clendenden, of Clendenen’s Cider Works in Fortuna, David Hagemann from Rio Dell, and David Martinek from Eureka, will bring apples from their orchards to taste and will be on hand to answer questions about growing apples in Humboldt County.


This Is Conifer Country

June 2nd, 2012  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Blog, Events, Humboldt County

Local author Michael Kauffmann will be on hand to sign copies of his new book Conifer Country tonight from 6-9pm during Arts Alive! Conifer Country is a natural history and hiking guide to 35 conifers of the Klamath Mountain region.

The Times-Standard published an article on the book:

When Michael Kauffmann began hiking through Humboldt County’s forests, he noticed something that a more casual hiker might take for granted.

”We have an extraordinary collection of conifers right here,” he said. “In fact, the Klamath mountain region has one of the most diverse assemblages of conifers anywhere on the planet.”

Although redwoods and Douglas firs get most of the attention, he realized that some of the conifers, like the Baker’s cypress and the foxtail pine, are quite rare and obscure.

Kauffmann, who teaches science at Fortuna Union Elementary School and at Humboldt State University, took it upon himself to explore and document the ranges of 35 local species.

Annual Books Arts Show kicks off at Arts Alive!

September 3rd, 2011  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Book Arts, Events

Eureka Books is proud to host the Fourth Annual Book Arts show by the North Redwoods Book Arts Guild (NORBAG). The unique and colorful books will be on display through September 30th.

NORBAG’s annual showcase of local book artists will once again test your notions of what a book is and can be.  Think of how Picasso transformed the still life, and that’s what these artists do with the idea of a book.

For more information check the article by Simona Cariniin this week’s North Coast Journal.
