If you are in the mood for a quaint-yet-potent art community, look into The Prescott Family. They are an artist collective born in the San Gabriel Valley some odd years ago. Today, many members live throughout the western US coast, reaching far as northern Washington, into Portland, San Fransisco, and down to the roots in Los Angeles. The group produces a unique variety of eclectic handmade music and art. I was lucky enough to have good friendships within the group and collaborate a handful of times.
If you want a recent sampler of their work, check out their new e-zine compilation released today:
Support some local handmade creativity. It will do you some good.
