Where Are the Chicana/o Artists This Weekend/Next Week? 2.10.07

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

This Chicana artist is still celebrating her 60th birthday. This time she‘«÷s off in Arizona for the Tucson Gems, Jewelry, Minerals and Fossils shows (45 in all). So, just to let you know I‘«÷m around, here‘«÷s what‘«÷s going on in NorthEast LA (NELA) this weekend. Many of the events feature Chicana/o artists, so this is for both of my newsletters this week. Back to normal??? next week. And, those 10 more pieces of advice that I promised. Shalom, RuthAnne Tarletz de Molina

Another year in LA ?Š
Room Constructions: Blueprints and Models
Saturday, December 16, 7 - 10p
Another year in LA, 2121 N San Fernando Rd, #13, Glassell Park, CA
Thru March 16
323-223-4000 info@anotheryearinla.com www.anotheryearinla.com

This exhibit features the 12 blueprint concept drawings created by Stephen J. Kaltenbach in 1967 as well as scale models of three of the rooms including two that were realized at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1967 and the Whitney Museum in 1969. These room construction blueprint drawings and actualized museum works pre-date his UC Davis classmate and fellow conceptual artist, Bruce Nauman‘«÷s corridor pieces by a couple years. The real history here is not that Kaltenbach did something before someone else; the moment was about his minimal discoveries.

Avenue 50 Studio ?Š
Beautiful Deceptions: Erotica by Women; Curated by Poli Marichal
Artists‘«÷ Reception: Saturday, February 10, 7 - 11p
Avenue 50 Studio, 131 N Avenue 50, LA, CA
February 10 - March 4
323.258.1435 ave50studio@sbcglobal.net www.avenue50studio.com

‘«£There‘«÷s nothi8ng more debauched than thinking.‘«ō From the poem, An Opinion On The Question Of Pornography by Wistawa Szymborska. The work exhibited deals with erotica in a tasteful and artistic manner. This is a show by women that doesn‘«÷t demean any sex. It features paintings, sculpture, assemblages, photography, video & prints from eight LA artists: Sonya Fe, Candace Metzger, Deborah Kantner, Candace Lin, Barbara Carrasco, Yolanda Gonzalez, Cristina Cardenas, and Poli Marichal. Ambiguous, dark, sexy, and symbolic aspects of erotica are explored in unexpected and striking ways. These women have conceived works that juggle with notions of sexual imagery in order to seduce and mesmerize, shock and impress the spectator:

Cristina C?Ūrdenas creates exhilaratingly sensuous tableaux of tantalizing nudes painted on amate paper.

Sonya Fe‘«÷s strong works on canvas and paper unabashedly depict women who are in a trance of self-discovery and affirmation.

Yolanda Gonzalez expresses a sense of humor in her bondage/ dominatrix depictions on canvas.

Deborah Kantner‘«÷s tastefully sexy photographs celebrate women and female role-playing in the urban jungle.

Candice Lin‘«÷s meticulously crafted dioramas and video work expose dark and disturbing aspects of sexuality.

Candace Metzger creates charming combines that juxtapose symbols of control and desire.

Poli Marichal mixes fantasy and symbolism in dynamic paintings that explore erotic dreams.

Most of the pieces feature women being unashamedly erotic, gloriously free of any self-conscious prudery or uncertainty. It is curious to note that the male figure is, in many of the works, the absent object of desire. This is a show by women about women‘«÷s erotica that, nevertheless, caters to both sexes.

Irene Carranza: New Works Solo Exhibit
Meet Irene Carranza: Saturday, February 10, 7 - 10p
Carlotta's Passion Fine Art, 2012 Colorado Blvd, LA, CA
January 13 - February 18
323.259.1563 rs@carlottaspassion.com www.carlottaspassion.com

This is your opportunity to meet Irene Carranza, listen to her discuss her artwork, and engage in one-on-one conversation with this Latina visual artist who has achieved iconic status in the art world.

Perhaps no other Latina artist in Los Angeles is so visible & invisible at the same time. Perhaps no other is so commercially viable & not commercial. And perhaps no other artist is as important to the expression of being Latina in a multicultural world without treating the paintbrush as a political hammer. On the contrary, whatever "it" is, she nails it. Although the color and strokes convey a world somewhere between Diego Rivera and Edvard Munch, a world between Marc Chagall's and Georgia O'Keefes', that world is distinctly Carranza's. She creates her works using oil, acrylic, charcoal & pastel on canvas, paper & wood. Since 1997, she has developed a body of work that is connected by the notion of feminine mystique & the interpretation of what makes a human "feminine". They are tales with allegorical references to death, beauty, innocence, wisdom & strength.

Performance and Man Who Fell To Earth Photo Exhibit featuring the work of Donald Cammell & Nicolas Roeg
drkrm. Gallery & Lab, 2121 San Fernando Rd Ste 3, LA, CA
Thru February 24
323.223.6867 626.825.2442 drkrm@mac.com www.drkrm.com www.artistbound.com

This exhibit is of interest to fans of Mick Jagger and of course the movie Performance. They have assembled a collection of rare and unseen photographs from Performance (1970) & The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976), two legendary films directed by Donald Cammell and Nicholas Roeg. Now recognized as classics, both films were, upon their release, met with a hostile critical reception that rejected their dazzling, kaleidoscopic use of montage as well as a daring mixture of sadism and eros -- the juxtaposition of images of sex and violence. Both films starred famous British rock stars, Mick Jagger in Performance and David Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth. They pay tribute to the boldness of directors Cammell and Roeg with this exhibit of images from their greatest works, whose daring & strangeness remain undiminished to this day.

The show consists of 20+ photographs, none of which have been shown in a gallery setting, most never seen by the public. Though there were six years between the two films, the photos share a strikingly similar quality; both depicted the collision of alien worlds that featured Jagger and Bowie as odd, androgynous, reclusive yet brilliant misanthropes. All of the photos from Performance & most from The Man Who Fell to Earth exist only in black and white, adding to their haunting, other-worldly quality.

Dissolution: solo exhibit by Jessica Swanson
Reception: Saturday, January 13, 7 - 10p
MorYork Gallery, 4959 York Blvd, Highland Park, CA
February 10 - March 7
323.376.4428 bmallman@nelaart.org w ww.claregraham.com/MorYork.html

Jessica Swanson examines human ideas about the wild. Her sculptures offer views of nature with a focus on scenic vistas or burnt out landscapes with glimpses of animals. Swanson's sculptures describe the toxic and wasted lands due to apathetic neglect or outright exploitation yet show hope as life forms continue to persist in these spaces.

Park Projects ?Š
Jessica Halonen and Emily Joyce: PLOT [plot]
Artists‘«÷ Reception: February 10, 7 ‘«Ű 10p
Park Projects, 4755 York Blvd, LA CA
February 10 - March 2
323-445-4015 323.719.8158 www.parkprojects.org http:/ /myparkp r ojects.org/

This is a two-person exhibit of new site specific works. It includes a mural sized wall painting by Joyce and a sculpture installation by Halonen. Although working with vastly different materials and processes, both artists use poetic gestures to navigate current global issues. By including trees and images of other natural life forms a garden-like environment is created. These works can be seen as a celebration or a resignation of our present condition.

Known for her abstract constructions of meticulously cut vinyl, Emily Joyce will present a mixed media wall painting, For what seemed like a long time, that will span the north wall of gallery. Upon inspection the densely layered abstract composition reveals colorful silhouettes of recognizable shapes. Smoking airplanes, tumultuous waves, and explosions emerge from a confetti-like barrage of smaller less threatening forms of shells, plants, trees and hot air balloons.

Complimenting Joyce's wall painting is a sculptural installation entitled Whithersoever by Jessica Halonen. The installation includes pedestals made from rammed earth, each topped with either a pine sapling or a concrete slab. Through Halonen's use of trompe l'oeil, the columns rise through the floor like core earth samples providing the trees with an astute presence yet precarious future.

Call For Entries: Puppets, Puppets, Puppets: In May & June of 2007, the Arroyo Arts Collective will be hosting Puppets, Puppets, Puppets, a Puppetry Festival in Northeast Los Angeles: They are looking for puppeteers, artists who make puppets, teachers for puppetry workshops for children & adults & a teacher to give a talk on the history of puppetry. Thanks to generous grants from the City of LA, Department of Cultural Affairs, & the LA County Board of Supervisors through the LA County Arts Commission we are able to give modest honoraria to puppeteers & teachers for this event.

Here??s how to get involved:

1) Puppeteers with a puppet show they??d like to present: We are looking for about 10 puppeteers to put on puppets shows in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles during the weekends of June 1, 2 & 3 & June 7, 8 & 9, 2007. Shows on June 3 will be part of the Lummis Day Festival in Sycamore Grove Park. Shows on June 9 will be part of the NELA Second Saturday Art Walk in galleries in Highland Park. These shows will be selected by a panel of judges including Alan Cook, Curator of the Conservatory of Puppetry Arts & Susan Simpson, puppeteer & teacher in the Cotsen Center for Puppetry & the Arts, at the California Institute of the Arts. All chosen puppeteers will receive a honorarium of between $100 & $300, based on the needs of the individual show. The Collective‘«÷s intention is to showcase in our neighborhood a representative sampling of the interesting new trends in contemporary puppetry. We??d particularly love to see shows about Los Angeles & its colorful characters, the Los Angeles River, & the diversity that characterizes our city. Multilingual shows are encouraged. We??re hoping for a nice blend of family friendly shows & more experimental works that would appeal to an adult audience. Our venues include outdoor performances in Sycamore Grove Park (a temporary stage will bbe available), as well as shows in the Acorn Gallery & other interior spaces. Ideally, shows will be short (under 30 minutes), self contained, or requiring short set up time, with modest lighting & sound requirements. We will also consider short films involving puppets.

2) Teachers who would like to teach a brief workshop on puppetry for children or adults: We are looking for workshop teachers to work with community members to teach adults & children puppetry skills. Our community includes artists, parents, school children, teachers & the curious. Last year we had great success making large street puppets with students & adults at Franklin High School, This was accomplished over three Saturdays prior to Lummis Day, & the puppets were carried in a parade from the Lummis Home to Sycamore Grove Park. We could do this again &/or have some shorter workshops (Example: a workshop to build a simple rod puppet, finger puppet or marionette ) at the Acorn Gallery or a local library. Teachers will receive honoraria appropriate to the project.

3) Puppetry Historian: We need one special person to give a presentation on the history of puppetry. This would occur a few weeks prior to June 3, at a gallery, library or other community space in Highland Park. It would be wonderful if this presentation had a hands on component (Example: A puppet petting zoo?) An honorarium will be given for this presentation.

If you are interested in putting on a puppet show, teaching a workshop or giving a presentation on the history of puppetry, please complete the following: Name, Address, Telephone Number, Email.

Please give a brief description (250 words) of your show, workshop or presentation. Be sure to tell us if this show is for adults or families, if it can be performed outdoors & what is needed for lighting & amplification. If you have supporting materials such as reviews of your work, photos or sketches, please include these with your application. Please send your application to The Arroyo Arts Collective, P.O. Box 50835, Highland Park, California 90050-0835 (or by email to puppets@arroyoartscollective.org ) by March 1, 2007. If you need further information, please contact us at puppets@arroyoartscollective.org .

We will notify winners of these competitions by March 31, 2007.

Artists Who Make Puppets: The Arroyo Arts Collective will have an open show, entitled Puppets on the Wall, in our Acorn Gallery. We are looking for artist made puppets of all types. We hope that artists from all media will create work for this show. There are no entry fees but entrants MUST BE CURRENT MEMBERS OF THE ARROYO ARTS COLLECTIVE. Please email your intention to participate to the Arroyo Arts Collective (puppets@arroyoartscollective.org ).
