Studio Visits: Santa Fe Art Colony Los Angeles

Santa Fe Art Colony Art Walk October 2017
http://www.santafeartcolony.org/

For some years now I’ve been walking the artwalks in Los Angeles, and now finally with this site I can document further the memories of the Artists I visit, so gracious and open with their sharing of art and spaces. The conversations this year were especially contagious, I seem to be taken in on a deeper level than before. A greater connection being made. Truly a must see when the next one comes around. Be sure to visit their website and sign up for notices…not to be missed.

[from their website] “The Santa Fe Art Colony is a live / work studio complex in downtown Los Angeles whose residents are professional artists making, teaching and promoting art in the region and the world. The annual open studios have been run by residents of the art colony since 1988. The original brick portion of the Santa Fe Art Colony was built in 1906 by entrepreneur C.B. Van Vorst, and was used as a mattress factory until the 1940’s. In 1988 the complex was renovated and developed into artists’ lofts by aa group of partners.

“A hidden neighborhood located on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Some have the pleasure to visit and collaborate with fellow artist’s at one of the spaces in the colony. Fifty-Seven in total, it’s private, quiet, a place to get work done.”

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.

Book 1: OECW: What are you Saving from Extinction?

Our Ever Changing World: Through the Eyes of Artists, Book 1, began with an inquiry into the quote by Frida Kahlo. “I paint flowers so they will not die.” Then the project grew into the question of “What are you saving from extinction?” and finally morphed into a sharing of stories, a special moment-in-time in an artists’ life. A possible aha! moment of awakening and connecting for them.
