    This is a presentation of Bare Bones Café, a community-sourced museum experience included with regular Rockwell admission. Refreshments will be available. Full schedule

    Bare Bones Café becomes a gallery of living statues! With a mix of elaborate costuming and improvisation, a diverse troupe of kindred spirits, led by Amelia Harnas, will play with the idea of what might happen if marble statues could actually come to life.

    About the Artist

    A chameleonic kind of artist, Amelia Fais Harnas delights in the agile navigation of the various creative disciplines that light her up. Best known for her portraits made with red wine, she has dedicated much of her energies toward portraiture and figurative work in both classical and newer media. However, she is more than a visual artist; she co-founded and has been coordinating The Hours Festivals for the past seven years; she has performed as a singer with the bands Ah Holly Fam’ly, Galveston, and The Areyoumadatme?s in Portland, OR.; lastly, Amelia is a dancer at heart, having studied and performed with Lois Welk, as well as improvised with Rhonda Morton in Alligator Mouth Five.
