Events featuring current and past Holly House resident artists are free to the public as part of Hypatia’s effort to enrich the cultural life of the local community while supporting women in the arts and academia with unrestricted time to complete their projects at Holly House in solo residencies.


Saturday, August 6: 1:00 p.m., at the Shelton Timberland Library at 710 West Alder Street in downtown Shelton, Florida artist Anna Goraczko will make a community cyanotype with local plant materials and other found objects, and everyone is welcome to join in. If the day is too overcast for the photographic process to “take,” the event will be rescheduled for 1 p.m. Monday, August 8. 
Goraczko received a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts from Florida International University in 2020 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art from Florida International University in 2008. She is a mixed media artist who employs cyanotypes to document a visual association between physical objects and the visual memory that might distort or abstract them. She uses found objects and material from her family’s archive to expand upon themes of place, memory, and spirituality.
Sunday, August 28: 2:30 p.m., at Saint David of Wales Episcopal Church, 324 W Cedar St., Shelton, a fund-raising event to support Hypatia-in-the-Woods and Holly House. The event will feature the Hood River trio, Kitchen Dogs, performing music written by recent Hypatia resident Julianna Waters.  Attendance limited to 50, by reservation, with admission fee.  There will be a light buffet and silent auction.
