This Friday, 7th December, is the Holiday Exhibition Opening Reception at the PVAC, from 5 - 8 pm. The works are from artists affiliated with the Center.
The 100 Ways to look at the Muse show is also open. I have pieces in both, one photo and one painting. The photo is one of many images made by dozens of South Bay artists of Laura Orr, as The Muse. The idea was originated by Bondo Wyszpolski, the entertainment editor of the Easy Reader newspaper. The exhibition was first seen in Manhattan Beach in 2010.
Then, Scott Canty, the curator of the PVAC and the L A Municipal Art Gallery, took the idea a step further by opening it up to other painters and sculptors. Quite an interesting result.
"Night Muse, Redondo Beach" is a 24 x 30" oil on canvas, painted with many oil glazes to give an ethereal feel to the wet sand and provide gorgeous colours in the darkness.
Also, in the 3rd gallery are 2 amazing paintings by F Scott Hess which are well worth seeking out. One of my favourite L A painters.
All these exhibitions are open until the end of December.
