Feathered Outlaw Brings Arts to Webster Street

Courtesy photo    In a true display of cross-Island camaraderie, Feathered Outlaw, a Webster Street business, participated in last weekend’s Art & Wine Faire on Park Street. Given the boutique’s penchant for purveying local art, Park Street’s event proved a good fit.

Events on the West End in August include two offerings from the Webster Street boutique known as Feathered Outlaw. 

2nd Friday Art Soiree: Baubles & Boudiors
On Friday, Aug 10, as part of the ongoing 2nd Friday events in Alameda, Feathered Outlaw hosts a Local Art Soirée and monthly art exhibit featuring art, photography and crafts by “fiercely talented” local artists. Alamedans are invited to mix and mingle with artists while enjoying light refreshments. These monthly events are free and open to everyone.
The August soiree features Alameda artist Connstance Garcia and a live acoustic set by Outlaw musician John Martin.

Outlaw’s August featured artist, Garcia is a mixed media assemblage artist from Alameda whose signature pieces include vintage doll parts.

“I use recycled items and found objects to create one-of-a-kind jewelry, oddities and gothic home decor,” said Garcia. “My favorite materials include bits of junk jewelry, vintage dolls, Victorian-era buttons and music boxes. I believe in sharing and learning from other artists in the community to support, promote and help each other find success.

“Travel, history and music are my inspirations to create different collections, which currently include rock ‘n’ roll, a Dia de Los Muertos and a Classic series.”

Lion & Lamb Trunk Show
Come by Feathered Outlaw for a sneak peek of Lion and Lamb Studios’ brand-new creations on Friday, Aug. 17, 6 to 9 p.m. Libations and good company guaranteed. Arrive early for the best selection, many of the offerings are one-of-a-kind. Free admission.

Lion & Lamb Studios (a.k.a. Sarah Woodruff) is a free-spirited jewelry studio in San Lorenzo that mixes everyday styling with deluxe materials.
