Where are the Chicana/o artists this weekend/next week? 3.17.06


Where are the Chicana/o artists this weekend/next week?

This Chicana artist will be at the Mental Menudo on Friday & then she's going to fly up the 110 Freeway to Rock Rose Gallery in NorthEast LA to catch the last of Poetry Night & some more of the Divine Feline exhibit there. And then she's saving some energy to celebrate the Mexica New Year, Chicome Tochtli, Seven Rabbit, at Self Help Graphics & Art. Of course, that's after she's had a run in with Llorona at the Saturday night opening of La Diosa: Rapture of the Goddess, curated by Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin at Ave 50 Studio. And then on Sunday, well, that's my secret.

Where will you be???

Friday Nights @ Not A Cornfield
Sustainable Urban Parks: Lecture by Galen Cranz
Friday, March 17, 7:30p
The Cornfields, LA State Historic Park,1201 N Spring St (College & Spring), LA

Is Not A Cornfield an island? Or part of an identifiable trend?

Berkeley professor Galen Cranz, author of the seminal treatsie, ?The Politics of Park Design? (1982) will journey to Not A Cornfield to talk about the ?fifth model? of urban parks, the Sustainable Urban Park. The presentation will draw in part from a paper recently co-authored by Cranz and architect Michael Boland. The ?fifth model? ? identified by Cranz and Boland as ?the Sustainable Park? ? follows the typology Cranz categorized a quarter-or-so-century ago. That quartet includes the Pleasure Ground (1850-1900), the Reform Park (1900-1930), the Recreation Facility (1930-1965), and the Open Space System (1965-?). During her Not A Cornfield appearance, Cranz will also emphasize the connections between ecology and site-specific art.

vibi@earthlink.net www.artediosa.com

The Goddess is all around us, ancient yet eternally young & fecund Mother Of All. At this reception not only will you have a chance to meet the artists, but there will also be a special appearance of the centuries old, La Llorona, the Barrio Goddess we all fear, love & hate. & you?ll be entertained by guest soprano, Hortensia Jauregui-Tamayo.

Paintings, prints, collage, mixed media, petit altars, video & multi- media by Southern CA artists: Linda Arreola, Julio Martinez, Nancy Ann Jones, Alexander Suriano, Margaret Garcia, Larimie Garcia, Brian Medina, John Miner, Jonde Northcutt, Ada Pullini-Brown, Jorge Sicre & Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin.

12 artists from Southern CA showcase their art in a moving and poignant exhibition about the Eternal Goddess. The artists are women and men of various ages, ethnicities and artistic vision. The many facets of La Diosa are explored in this dynamic art show about the woman goddess, who is known all over the world & in all cultures. She is presented by a group of artists who depict her many faces within varying cultural and personal contexts. This exploration of the fecund and nurturing Goddess reveals her as an elixir for the world destroyed by male patriarchal systems. She is however shown in her yin/yang, life /death, male/female nature. She is also depicted as she who gives life but who also destroys. Yet, La Diosa is always a source of hope, for it is she who is the first creator.
