The Art Base

Marcia Weese

Express Yourself features KDNK logo competition winner Georgia Ackerman, artist Marcia Weese , and Boulder-based ceramic artist Heather Hillard. Cody Lee spins some of the freshest tunes and we feature Basalt Library's Bach Bash musicians Sarah Graf, Brittni Brown, and Susan Nicholson. 

Kathy Honea has been beading and booking in the Roaring Fork Valley for more than 40 years. Her first solo show, at the Art Base in Basalt, will hang until December 18. KDNK's Luke Nestler caught up with Kathy and discovered that she is just as humorous as some of her art.

Skye Skinner, the new ED for the ArtBase in Basalt describes this ninth edition of the 10 x 10 Art Auction. More than 130 artists have donated art to the ArtBase and all of it inspires during trying times. All the art is viewable online and bidding happens there too.
