There is no shortage of creativity in Santa Cruz County. Big dollars for creativity and creative folk? Well, that can be debated. Regardless, all the panache that makes Santa Cruz stand out artistically comes to life this weekend as the annual Open Studios Art Tour officially begins. All that, coupled with First Friday, make this week truly art-inspired. GT reflects on several Open Studios artists whose work seems destined to capture the attention of locals.

Proving that individuals with differing opnions can, in fact, discuss issues in a civil manner, Rick Longinotti and Mike Rotkin chat with GT this week on the controversial subject of seawater desalination. Rotkin, a former Santa Cruz mayor and councilman, and Longinotti, a retired electrician and environmental activist have expressed their opinions on the matter over the years—Longinotti founded the Desal Alternatives group; Rotkin is now a sesal supporter.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
