Local Artists Feature- Our Pendulum poster artwork features art and photography of people within our local community.  This month we are thrilled to feature a pencil sketch by Kellie Masterson.  "This is a drawing of the ventral side of a fossilized pelvis from a Pachyornis elephantopus, otherwise known as an elephant bird or moa.  Now alas extinct.  If extinction isn’t scary, I don’t know what is."
