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.”

Fun Debate between The Natural History Museum and The Science Museum UK

Shared from the Newstatesman article

I must say, this has made my day as I’ve read it over and over and am now planning to go to twitter, which I seldom do, and follow both these institutions… just for the rhetoric… the fun, the insights the learning the smiles and laughs that are coming out of my mouth and stimulating my thinking… now all that’s needed is one of the Museums of Art to chime RA or the British Museum  in with The Natural History Museum and the Science Museum  — here…! OR how about the US getting in on this… LACMA or MOCA

OPENING STATEMENT: “2017 is undoubtedly the year of the feud. As celebrities and corporations alike take to Twitter to hash things out, two of the UK’s most respected scientific institutions, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum have got in on the action.

It all started with this rather innocous tweet, during The Natural History Museum’s Ask a Curator event on Twitter, where users could tweet in questions to The Natural History Museum’s twitter account. The resulting back and forth is… continued here at Newstatesman article

Book 8: The Women’s March: Los Angeles, California – January, 2017 by Ann Marie Rousseau

Book 8 in the Our Ever Changing World: Through the Eyes of Artists Art-Project Books Series. A 100 page book with over 100 images documenting the Signs of the March on January 21, 2017, as only Ann Marie Rousseau’s eye can catch. She is an established Southern California based contemporary artist, known for her detailed artwork, and her never ending support of the local art community through her photo documentation of art openings, and the community as a whole.

Ann Marie places, frozen in time, an event that will eventually take it’s place in history books as one of the largest peaceful social political protests of our time. Continue reading

Studio Visit: Francisco Alvarado

My work reflects life experiences through various colorful abstractions.
My inspiration comes from nature and my travels.
Using bold colors and patterns I am constantly exploring new territory.

Studio Dog with Francisco Alvarado, June 2017

I utilize both technology and hands on manipulation of acrylic paint, mixed media and digital imaging to create my work.

My series, Without Brushes, consists of drawings made on an IPad and later finished with a photo editing tool. These artistic explorations took me in a new direction of combining my paintings into a series of Digital Art.
