The next Artwaves is on glass. Artwaves speaks with Eureka glass sculptor John Gibbons about his interest in creating myriad styles of glass art from vases to six-foot sculptures to starfish in motion. His work has been part of exhibits throughout the United States. He currently is a member of Old Town Art Gallery, where his work is featured. 


Humboldt State is home to the oldest student-run film festival in the world. Student co-directors Andrew Weisz, Kira Hudson, Nirobys Appolito talk to Wendy Butler about the 

The 50th Humboldt International Film Festival starts Wednesday (April 19). 

Dell’Arte International MFA graduate, actor and teacher Zuzka Sabata will present her original one-woman play about 19th century historical figure Olive Oatman at six different venues across Humboldt County August 18-28.

Sabata says her play explores the life of a woman who lived in two seemingly opposing cultures. During her Artwaves interview she talks about why she was interested in catalyzing a community dialog about this individual and this subject matter.

A new exhibition will highlight the opening of a new gallery space in Eureka.

French artist Veronique Archambault’s “Spontanéité” will be on display in August at the new location of Black Faun Gallery, 528 Second St. (formerly St. Vincent de Paul), Eureka.
