Amanda Saint Claire was our final resident at the Desert Dairy this season. She sneaked in when it was just getting, let's say, warm. She spent her days in the apartment AC writing, and her evenings painting and creating a personal space in Cindy Zimmerman's "Rain Grotto." Amanda is developing a sound practice, plus the lighting and scents were gorgeous. www.amandasaintclaire.com
Cindy Rinne worked in both the Residency apartment and in the White Box Gallery, getting ready for her performance at the High Desert Fringe Festival at Tower Homestead in Wonder Valley. She makes costumes and ritual objects, and performs her poetry. She received an Arts Connection, San Bernardino Arts Council Micro Grant to come to the Desert Dairy!
