GLYDER apparel

There's a new Women's Yoga Wear brand in town! Glyder Apparel http://work-sweat-play.com/ is designed my Leucadia artist/ Beacons local : Lauren Tolford. Lauren leads the design department, while her fellow FIDM alumni and Carlsbad local, Amanda Thomashow handles the business management of the brand. Lauren's FiancĂ©, Erik Baldwin stepped in to shoot all the product shots for the website as well!

The yoga and women's athletic market is on fire right now and some of the big name brands are selling their basic Yoga Pants and Tanks for unbelievably high prices!

Glyder Apparel is using the IDENTICAL durable Nylon Spandex fabric as the leading yoga brands, but at a much more friendly price!  Pants, Crops, Tanks and Tee's with appealing feminine styling, made with flat seam construction, and a beautiful color pallet make this collection a must have for all you active moms and "yoganistas" out there. 

Their products are only available online currently. The website is decked out with some great lifestyle photos of some very recognizable locations of the Grandview and Swamis coastline. Yoga Tropics Instructor, Tracey Stockapler is featured in many of photos on the site performing some amazing yoga postures.
Please go check them out!

The Sea Is My Brother

New piece by local artist Cheryl Sorg titled The Sea, 29" x 24", paper with acid-free adhesive on engineering vellum.

Cheryl uses clipping from magazines and books to make her work.

This original collaged piece is an homage to her two loves - literature and the sea - and the connection between the two. There is much beautiful blue ocean imagery, as well as snippets of poetry and literary titles from works whose themes revolve around the sea.

You can buy it at:
