Happy new year from Headlands Center for the Arts, and welcome to 2009! Before we put 2008 fully behind us, we'd like to send out one last resounding THANK YOU for your support last year. Your attendance at programs, your efforts to share Headlands with friends and family, and your contributions of time and finances made 2008 a year of new highs for us.

Moving onward and upward, 2009 will be an exciting year here at Headlands, and we hope you'll visit often. Between artist talks, Open Houses, our annual Benefit Auction and more, there will be many opportunities for you to be a part of the Headlands community.

First up on the calendar: Front + Center opens this Sunday, January 18. After six successful years of launching its residency season with an annual exhibition, Headlands, in collaboration with Kimberly Johansson, has reimagined this show and calls critical attention to noteworthy California artists from Headlands' 2009 applicant pool. Exhibition details and hours are below, and mark your calendar for the official opening reception coming up on Sunday, February 8 from 2-4PM.

And keep an ear to the ground in the next few weeks: Headlands is about to announce its roster of 2009 Artists in Residence. See you at Headlands soon!
