January 2016 is stacking up to be my busiest art month yet. More of my artwork is on display at one of my favorite local eateries, The Coffee Table Eagle Rock! I was a loyal patron at the Silverlake location for seven years before it sadly closed its doors. Great food lured me to its counters, but the colorful mosaic tables and array of local art on the walls were the inspirational forces that retained me for hours in the bustling cafe. A staple of Eagle Rock, the second location offers the same tables, rotation of local art, and is in no danger of disappearing anytime soon. The owners have even opened an adjacent lounge where evening patrons can enjoy a full bar and local craft brews.
I feel honored to have my art featured on its spacious cafe walls from January 9 through March 1. If you’re in the neighborhood, order a latte, grab a table, and check them out.
Leaping into 2016 with a very cool art show!
Three of my recent pieces – Lotus, Where Life Is, and White Noise are featured in MODULE, a new exhibit at Art Share Gallery in Downtown LA from January 6 through January 16. Curated by Elizabeth Carranza, MODULE explores modularity through art and features 18 local artists’ creative explorations of the theme.
Art Share is generously hosting a free reception for the exhibit on Saturday, January 9 from 8pm to 11pm. Open to the public, so swing by for an evening of art and music!
This is what a 4′ x 4′ print of Lotus 1 looks like in Pershing Square…exhibiting at the Art-Squared Gallery in Downtown LA from October to November 2015.
Exhibit curated by Mark Walsh. The Art Squared Gallery is a partnership between the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, Pershing Square Outdoor Concert and Event Center and the Downtown LA Artist Space. The Gallery showcases large 2D vinyl prints and 3D sculptures throughout the fountain and orange grove areas of the venue. Artists from downtown Los Angeles and other south land art communities donate their work to the park.
My amazing friend (and talented photographer) Kengi Carr is curating Pop Up Art shows at the USC Pizza Studio Gallery near Downtown Los Angeles this summer, and he’s invited me to participate. From May 22nd through June 25th, three of my collages – Grasping, Starry Nights, and Lotus II – will be on display and for sale. Pizza Studio, located at 3584 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90007, is open Monday through Sunday from 11am to 9pm.
“The Butterfly Effect: A phenomenon whereby localized change in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere.”
It’s official! I’m joining other Los Angeles artists in The Butterfly Effect Art Show on November 8th in Highland Park!
Please join us for a one night event bringing together expression, creation and empowerment. Our voices do matter and through the powerful medium that is art we can collectively impact the whole in a major way. We will be mixing art, music and food to help benefit, A New Way of Life, a Los Angeles based non-profit focused on empowering women and transitioning them safely back into our communities. The show will be held on the same evening as NELAart Gallery Night in Highland Park and will feature DJ’s, food trucks, vendors and an open bar. There will also be live artists creating masterpieces right before your eyes and live body painters turning models into walking art pieces.
Tickets are on pre-sale for $15 from now until October 31st at http://dangerousdamescollective.com.
Tickets at the door will be $20.
Date/Time – Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 6pm to midnight
