UNO’s Beach Party Installation, 2017 LA Art Show

Before I tell you about my Spring lineup, I thought I’d take one more look back at my LA Art Show installation in January. UNO’s Beach Party was seen by over 70,000 people during the run of the fair. It was tons of fun but also exhausting, so now that I’ve caught my breath, please join me at these upcoming shows…

I’m off to LA Art Show!

We barely had time to catch our breath from the Miami shows when we threw all of our energy into preparing for the upcoming LA Art Show, January 11 – 15, 2017 in the Los Angeles Convention Center West Hall.

I will be introducing UNO’S GMO Beach Party installation and will be painting a mural directly on the show wall as part of the installation. I also will be showing my new “famous artists portrait series” and other new work under the Coagula Curatorial banner just inside the show entrance at exhibition space #113.

The LA Art Show is entering its third decade as one of the world’s largest and longest running events with 150,000 square feet of exhibition space and close to 70,000 attendees last year. While dedicated to maintaining their commitment to technique and integrity, the show’s principals continue to further refine their curatorial vision by presenting innovative galleries and artist performances that showcase premier Modern and Contemporary work. Please check their web site for show times and directions.

Before I go, I also want to thank Phoenix New Times and arts writer Lynn Trimble for the in-depth studio interview.

Hope to see you at the show!

See you in Miami!!

Produced and curated by Dulce Stein, the show will include many of LA’s top contemporary artists.

Phoenix Magazine shines the spotlight on me in their April 2016 Issue

Phoenix Magazine shines the spotlight on me in their April 2016 Issue

It could go to my head being referred to as “Original Hepcat and Artist-Entrepreneur.” What a great spotlight spread from Phoenix Magazine! Marilyn Hawkes, writer, did a masterful job of summing up my life in five paragraphs and photographer Michael Woodall (pictured here with assistant Natasha Mishana) got such a fantastic close-up of me and my work!

Many thanks to Managing Editor Niki D’Andrea and the crew at Phoenix Magazine for consistently turning out one of the most relevant city magazines in publication.

Tieken Gallery Presents Co_Works: A Transatlantic Venture with Guest Curator, Norbert Guthier

Tieken Gallery Presents Co_Works: A Transatlantic Venture with Guest Curator, Norbert Guthier

Imagine you could travel the world, stopping wherever you wish to meet your favorite artists and to visit with them in their studios, spending a day or two watching them at work.

For Norbert Guthier of Germany, this is not a dream but a reality that he has been living for the last several years. Not only has Guthier been visiting artists throughout the Americas, he has created a book, Co_Works, that combines photographs by Guthier with original artwork from the artists inspired by these photos.

Living the ultimate curator’s dream, Guthier is now working on a series of shows featuring these Co_Works with the premier American showing at Tieken Gallery opening February 27, 2016.

Featured in the show will be artists Emilio Martinez, Miami, FL; Matt Sesow, Washington, DC; Heather Wilcoxon, San Francisco, CA; Matthias Bolz, Dresden, Germany; Barbara Fisher, Asheville, NC; Brad Moody, Houston, TX; and Fred Tieken, Paradise Valley, AZ & Venice Beach, CA; with photography by Norbert Guthier, Frankfurt, Germany.

The opening reception on February 27 will be by RSVP. An event page will be posted on the Facebook Tieken Gallery page in mid February so please sign up early. We are expecting a full-to-capacity opening and you must be on the guest list to attend this event.

February 27 – March 6, 2013, Opening Hosted Reception, Saturday, February 27, 6pm to 9pm

Closing Reception, Sunday, March 6, 2013, 2pm to 5pm, find us on facebook

Sculpture Maze

Sculpture Maze

In mid-February, Uno and I will be heading over to bG Gallery in Santa Monica for Sculpture Maze. Part curatorial/part installation, Om Bleicher is creating a maze within the gallery from line upon line of sculptures. Guests will be invited to walk through the maze exploring the beauty of the individual sculptures that make up the walls of the maze itself. What fun! I just hope Uno behaves himself.
