October Creative Mixer



The Salida Council for the Arts (SCFTA) invites the public to attend the October Creative Mixer at the Salida SteamPlant Paquette Gallery on Thursday, October 12 from 5:30-7:00 pm featuring artist Dvora Kanegis and Joe Lobeck of the Salida Circus.

Artist Dvora Kanegis, a life-long painter, finds that after years of painting abstract faces, dancers, and landscapes, that total abstraction is her new passion. Her intent is to create meaningful experiences from color alone with very little form, which she says is an incredibly challenging goal! Dvora has been experimenting with Venetian plaster, which she applies to canvas in many layers, thus making the acrylic paint look luminous. 

Joe Lobeck of the Salida Circus will be on hand to make juggling look easy. Of course, it’s not! His message through juggling is one of determination, hard work, and focus, as we strive for greatness in whatever we do. He’ll share some insights on what it takes to juggle the various pursuits we all take on in our personal and professional lives, and have fun while we’re doing it!

Held every second Thursday, the Creative Mixer is free and open to the public. It’s a casual, social gathering to share information about the local arts scene. The Mixer is a great way to find new friends and collaborators. Free hors’ de oeuvres, a cash bar, beautiful artwork, exciting entertainment, and great conversation are yours to enjoy!

Join us at “The Mixer” on Thursday, October 12 from 5:30-7:00 pm.
