Water: A Necessary Conversation

“Water: A Necessary Conversation” Exhibition  Opens 7 – 9 pm – Sat. Nov. 14th
If you’re at NELA Artwalk in Highland Park his Saturday evening, November 14th, stop in to Avenue 50 Studio. You’ll see my “Water Signs – Laguna Woods”  plus wonderful paintings and posters celebrating water and bringing attention to our need to focus attention now.

First in my new “Water Signs” series of digital photo collages. 20 x 16″, on White Aluminum Composite – “Water Signs – Laguna Woods”

My digital “painting” was created using iPhoneography – photos taken with my iPhone of condos and golf course, a street sign and water utility street cover in Laguna Woods. These photos were then collaged into a cohesive statement using several layers of photos and colors in the Procreate app.

“Water: A Necessary Conversation” brings together contemporary art and past posters focused on water as a vital and limited resource. It includes abstract and representational artworks by 20 contemporary artists working in an array of media from painting, prints, video to photography. Curated by art historian Susan M. King, the selection of works strikes a dialogue between past and present art meant as a social lever around water issues.

The exhibition is  organized by the Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art as an Art as Activism project with assistance from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS: Elaine Alibrandi, Melissa Richardson Banks, Mariona Barkus,Andrea Broyles, Danielle Eubank, Karen Hansen, Shelley Heffler, Brenda Hurst, Ann Isolde, J. J. L’Heureux, Yana Marshall, Andrea Monroe, Eva Montealegre, Therese Moriarty, Sandra Mueller, Seda Saar, Karen Schifman, Susie Stockholm, Stephanie Sydney, Teresa Young and the “Artists Formerly Known as Women” collective. (Bold indicates WCA member).

Avenue 50 Studio, 131 N. Avenue 50, Highland Park, CA 90042, 323-258-1435

Coming up – highlights of my trip to Palo Alto for the Mobile Digital Art and Creativity Summit. So many talented digital artists – all working on mobile devices – iPads, iPhones, tablets. The genius quotient was very, very high.

Love to all,
