Studio Visits: The Brewery Los Angeles

The Brewery Artwalk Los Angeles, CA
http://breweryartwalk.com

I have been visiting the Brewery in downtown LA for years and each time I see something different that catches my eye. I have many friends who live there… the art spaces are amazing. Some have tall open ceilings and others have garden walkways. There is a lot of asphalt and a park right in the middle of the complex. It also is home to about 3 galleries LA Artcore being one of them.

There is a restaurant named Barbara’s where you can find artists and business people hanging out eating or having a conference. It’s certainly a destination location… and one not to miss.

[from their website] We are one of the oldest and largest artist colonies in the world, celebrating over 30 years. Covering 23 acres in 14 buildings of live-work spaces, 500-700 artists and businesses call The Brewery their home. Twice a year, we open our doors and invite the public to enjoy our open studios at The Brewery Art Walk.

The Brewery Art Colony, located in Los Angeles, has been called the largest live-and-work artists’ colony in the world. The compound sits on twenty-one former warehouses – with an old Edison power plant chimney dating to 1903 – house work studios, living lofts, restaurants and galleries.
The Brewery is home to practitioners of a variety of artistic mediums from painting, sculpture and photography to industrial design, architecture and experimental new media

The Beginnings

The Brewery Art Colony began in 1903 as the Edison Electric Steam Power Plant and then as a Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery. Years later it was converted into artist lofts.

The Artwalk

The Brewery Art Walk is a twice-annual free event showcasing Los Angeles artists selling gallery-quality fine art at studio prices. Artists open up their homes to the public and allow them to browse and purchase their artwork in their lofts. The Art Walk offers visitors a unique chance to walk door to door to visit artists in their workspaces.

Book 4: OECW: Artists, Art & Story Southern California

Our Ever Changing World: Through the  Eyes of Artists: “Artists, ART & Story: Southern California

cvrBook Four:  (5.5 x 8.5 black and white) Spotlights Southern California Artists their art and story. The focus of the book was to write a story, 500 to 1,000 words long and to share a life experience NOT related to or mention art in any way. As artists it seems we are always talking to and about our lives as artists. My intention was to help move the focus more to the history of the artist as a combination o f life experiences. We are more than our art… we are our story.

There are 90 artists and 280 pages to read through.
