Ezra Moussa is a computer science student and photographer currently attending UC Santa Cruz. In high school, photography became a passion of his as he started to focus on street photography. Street photography allows Ezra the ability to document everyday life through his perspective and turns seemingly ordinary occurrences into works of art. In late 2016, Ezra traveled to Havana, Cuba, and used this opportunity to document the people, culture, and life of the city. ** Art Gallery, 1st Floor **

Janet Avedissian was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1938. After the 1979 revolution, her family left the country for Firenze, Italy, and later immigrated to the United States. Since childhood, Janet has always admired pottery and ceramics. After her son and daughter graduated from college, she had more time to study ceramics at Glendale College, College of Marin, and College of San Mateo. Janet's sculptures are inspired by circle motifs. She says, "To me they are symbols of love and unity. I hope my work inspires others." ** Display Case, 2nd Floor **

Join other writers in a supportive and social group for writers of all kinds every Thursday evening. Whether you write for personal, professional or other reasons, come prepared to work. This is not a critique or sharing group, but you are welcome to discuss your work during check-in time between 6:30pm - 7pm Writing is solitary, and this meeting is a chance to connect, and sometimes commiserate with other writers. Come late and leave early if you need to, and bring a charged laptop as outlets are limited. The meeting room varies.
Melanie Shook and Korie Pelka of the California Writers Club-SF Peninsula Branch co-host these weekly meetings. Meeting rooms will vary so please email Cynthia McCarthy at email@example.com for notifications and updates.
