Grief counseling?

Does anyone know of a grief counselor or better yet, a grief support group in Cuenca? This would be an ongoing group/sessions for Nov. to Jan.

Charlie the puppy with the broken leg (now in rehab) needs a home

This is Charlie. A sweet pup who got a new lease on life. We were recently up in the Rio Amarillo area of Cuenca when this little guy who was at the time hiding in a muddy ditch came wobbling over to our friend for help. He was suffering from a broken leg.

We got a wave of support from folks wanting to donate to get his operation but now we are looking for a home for Charlie.

He is a very sweet and nice puppy; Very intelligent and very calm. Even when in extreme pain he did not snap or try to bite anyone...he took it like a champ. He knew we were there to help.

Please help us find a forever home for this little guy. He looks like a Cocker Spaniel/Golden Retriever mix.

idiomART has a new location

idiomART studio had outgrown its place at Manuel Vega and Juan Jaramillo, and has moved to a new, larger location, a house, one block away on President Córdova. No more will we have to turn away artists who want to use idiomART as their home studios or having to rearrange furniture and reconfigure how to use the space for workshops several times per week, some weeks almost daily.

The new location offers a painter’s garden, a “wet space” for fiber arts, a gallery, personal studios, a covered porch for outdoor collaboration, a fountain, flowers, trees, etc.

Also, idiomART's one-year anniversary event on September 23rd will be held in our its new place on President Córdova 1-77 from 4 to 7 pm. Art Rocks! will be both a fund-raiser and party to celebrate how far idiomART has come in thirteen months and how much more it would like to accomplish during the second year.

At idiomART, is an open door—a shared space, a place where friendships form and dialogue deepens, where we’re richer together than any of us is as a single artist, alone.

Regular studio hours are Monday through Friday, from 10 AM to 3 PM. Open at various other times for events and workshops, or by appointment. President Córdova 1-77 y Manuel Vega, Cuenca.
