Auction + EXPO Contemporary + Brewery Art Walk

Lots of news! ~ Young mother, Nicole Saari, is the daughter of writer Genie Davis, whose work you might have read on the popular arts blog, Diversions L.A. Nicole has late stage Lyme Disease and requires expensive treatment not covered by insurance. Many local artists have donated work to live and online auctions to help raise funds. Take a look here where you'll find my 8-1/2"x12" matted and framed drawing entitled, "Artie Shaw," (above) available for only $125! That's far below retail or what you'd pay at Art Walk. Free delivery in the L.A. area, mailing anywhere at cost. You can help Nicole, plus enjoy owning an original drawing by me! Thank you.

If you've been following my art adventures for the last several years, you know that I was one of a dozen L.A. artists who were invited to be the first in the U.S. to create art on wine barrels for the BOTART International collection. If you'd like to know the story, click here to see photos and read my blog post about making "Tipitina," my painted wine barrel which is third from the front in the photo below. The barrel is painted with confetti shapes and black lines representing the streets of New Orleans, and has Mardi Gras beads on top! About fifteen barrels from the now large collection were on display last weekend at the EXPO Contemporary art show presented by Fabrik Magazine at The Reef in downtown L.A. Tickets are available here. These festive barrels are not for sale, but they are great fun to see, and they are always shown with plenty of art that is available for purchase.

And, finally, don't miss the Brewery Art Walk coming up on the 29th and 30th of April! Yes, the world’s largest art community is once again opening over 100 of its studios to the public

Located northeast of downtown Los Angeles, off the 5 Freeway’s Main Street exit, The Brewery sits on 16 acres packed with creative energy. During Artwalk, you can look forward to talking with the artists about their work, sampling the tasty fare of the many food trucks, and enjoying a beer garden hosted by our very own Barbara’s restaurant, all in an exciting, engaging environment.

The artists of The Brewery are known to be on the leading edge of the Los Angeles art scene. This is THE go-to art event in Los Angeles, so join us at The Brewery, where art lives!

I'm back at the location of my very first Brewery studio at 642 Moulton, E31. Map is below and you'll get a color-coded map when you arrrive. There's free parking on the surrounding streets and in the adjacent UPS lot, but please be there by noon to make sure you can find a spot.

Fine Arts Federation Show + Sneak Peek: New Brewery Art Studio

I'm catching up on posting. Somehow these notices ended up on Facebook and in my email that goes to newsletter subscribers, but not here on the blog.

FINE ARTS FEDERATION MEMBERSHIP SHOW: One of my digital prints on canvas was in this annual group show. Over 60 artists exhibited paintings, sculpture, ceramics, and more at the beautiful Creative Arts Center, 1100 W. Clark Ave., Burbank, CA. The show was up from March 3rd through March 23rd. 

Passages 107
Announcing My New Brewery Studio: Take a peek below at 642 Moulton Ave., #E-31. Does that address sound familiar? It's the very first space I had at The Brewery. Yes, I've come full circle over the past few years. This time, five of us are sharing the studio, and the front area will be our group gallery space. Looks great so far, doesn't it?

I hope you'll visit on Art Walk weekend, April 29th and 30th, but if you'd like to enjoy a small group tour of about ten Brewery studios, check out the available dates at LA Art Tours.
