Painting a Wine Barrel for BOTART

I'm delighted to be one of only twelve artists whose work will be featured at the preview show of BOTART III, the first transcontinental BOTART exhibition. Each artist will have on display a painted wine barrel and a wall-hung work of art. WestEDGE is a four-day curated fair showcasing the best in modern design for architects, the design trade, and discerning design aficionados. Don't miss the exciting OPENING NIGHT PARTY, a special event to benefit Heal the Bay during which there will be a silent auction of the barrels. The display barrels will continue to tour for BOTART (there are several stops planned before the full show concludes in Paris) and the winning bidders will receive their own specially commissioned barrel created by the artist. On Saturday night, join the festivities at the A+D Museum party, an evening of cocktails, prizes and more. Please join me for this very exciting event!

New Studio Location + Save the Dates for the Fall Brewery Art Walk

I'm moving into a new studio at The Brewery, and I'm delighted with the new space! The address is 670 S. Avenue 21, which is adjacent to the garden -- the dog park, as Brewery residents call it. Map and a photo are below. Those of you who've visited me at the Brewery will see that it's just up the driveway from my former location. I'm sharing the space with former studiomates Yvonne Beatty and Brenda Hurst. Please stop by during Art Walk and help us celebrate our new home away from home!

Save the dates:

The Brewery Art Walk is a twice-a-year open studio weekend at the world's largest artists colony. With over 100 participating resident artists, visitors will have the opportunity to discover new works, speak with the artists, and purchase artwork directly from the artists' studios. October 25th and 26th from 11 AM to 6 PM. Admission is free and so is parking. Come and support LA’s finest artists, take home some great works, and dine at the on-site restaurant or enjoy the outdoor food tents. The Brewery is where art lives. See you at the studio!

Cut/Paste is closing next weekend:

Just a reminder that "Cut/Paste" closes on Saturday the 27th. Art Share L.A. is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to six, so stop by if you'd like to see this excellent show. I have five drawings on display.

"Cut/Paste" Reception at Art Share L.A.

I'm so pleased to have been invited to be a part of the "Cut/Paste" small group show at Art Share LA in the heart of the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles. I enjoyed seeing all of the work and thought it was all beautifully installed (thanks, volunteers!). Thanks to the committee members who selected the artists and thanks to Executive Director Cheyanne Sauter for putting together such a great show!

The colorful building!

The show is up through the 27th. Gallery is open
Wednesday - Sunday from noon to six. Stop by!

The first five pieces on the wall are my drawings (created with
Prismacolor pens and/or color pencils).

With artist Yvonne Beatty, Art Share L.A. Executive Director
Cheyanne Sauter, and artist Andre Miripolsky.

Cool art by another artist, this one in the companion show,
"Rock. Paper. Scissors," in the gallery.
