Nicol Sayre

Nicol Sayre

Nicol Sayre's art is reminiscent of a by-gone-era when much pride was taken in creating things by hand. Each doll and figure is a one-of-a-kind creation. Sometimes Nicol follows a certain theme but each doll has a different expression and vintage elements which give them their unique personality.

Nicol has a passion for antique dolls, toys and sewing and household implements. It is from these collections that she draws her inspiration.

The mid-1800's is Nicol's favorite time period and her dolls reflect the styles and colors of this era.

The handwork in Nicol's art is intentionally evident, from hand-stitched hems to a thumbprint in a sculpted figure. She likes to imagine the pioneers who may have admired dolls and toys in shop windows and then set out to create their own entirely from materials at hand.

Clownfest

Clownfest

Clownfest has always been about helping clowns to develop their skills and celebrate the wonderful art. This is the only clown event of it's kind anywhere in the world. The first part is designed to give classes in the multitude of skills that make up clowning. The next part happens when the clowns go onto the boardwalk in force to meet the people and to do what they do best, bring smiles and laughter to their fans.

Finally Clownfest celebrates in the BIG clown parade on Sunday. After having a fun week devoted to the art that you love you will be turned loose to turn loose some love of your own. Make Clownfest the highlight of your year!

The Order of the Good Death

The Order of the Good Death

The Order of the Good Death is a group of funeral industry professionals, academics, and artists exploring ways to prepare a death phobic culture for their inevitable mortality. It was founded in January 2011 by Caitlin Doughty, a mortician and writer in Los Angeles, CA.

The Order is about making death a part of your life. That means committing to staring down your death fears- whether it be your own death, the death of those you love, the pain of dying, the afterlife (or lack thereof), grief, corpses, bodily decomposition, or all of the above. Accepting that death itself is natural, but the death anxiety and terror of modern culture are not.

The Order of the Good Death features the Ask a Mortician webseries.
