    Beth Krebs is an artist and educator with an MFA from Rutgers University. When not working on her own art projects, she can be found teaching school groups at the de Young Museum and adults at the San Francisco Art Institute.

Sometimes an artist sets the scene for something to happen, leaving room for us to imagine what that might be. Tammy Rae Carland’s selections for The Artist’s Eye, and her own works in the show, explore absence and presence, and uncertainty about being the center of attention. In this program, whose title echoes the title of one of Carland’s paintings, explore these ideas in the gallery and as you create a stage set whose characters are absent, complete with pop-up props and trim and fabric embellishments. You might have a particular person or action in mind, but your props and setting will be the only clues.
