ArtQuench TV Presents Artist Kathy Curtis Cahill

ArtQuench TV is Pleased to Present

Artist Kathy Curtis Cahill

Kathy was the winner of the ArtQuench TV Contest. The ArtQuench TV production crew met with Kathy and has created this video showcasing Kathy’s incredibly moving images and the telling of her heartfelt back story.

We Introduce “Memories and Demons”

 

Kathy Curtis Cahill

After being educated as an art teacher, I moved to Los Angeles and became involved in film and television. I worked in the Art Department as a Set Decorator, over 30 years in this capacity, garnering an Emmy Nomination in 2001. I retired in 2011 and now pursue photography full time. My subject matter is varied, I pursue what interests me at the moment, but all of my work reflects my extensive background in the artifice of the entertainment industry, telling a story non verbally, with the actors still off stage. I prefer to use mannequins and dolls as stand ins.

Launch LA Solo Exhibitions Opening Reception Jan 14

launch-la-frieden-front-rgb-002

Launch LA Presents

Sarajo Frieden – where the light gets in

Carol Sears Jigsaw

January 14 – February 25, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, January 14, 6-9pm

RSVP Essential to: rsvp@launchla.org

launch-la-logo

Launch LA is excited to announce its upcoming solo exhibitions by Los Angeles-based artists Sarajo Frieden and Carol Sears.

where the light gets in showcases Frieden’s vivid compositions of figurative abstraction in a complex balance of color and form. Organic patterns of mosaic leaves, or flower petals in soft lavender and copper lay against a linear grid in lime and umber in an unpredictable balance of complexity.

launch-la-frieden-front-rgb-002

Each painting is often layered with a multiplicity of visual vocabularies mining the history of abstraction, textiles, non-Western cultures, and digital culture. Frieden describes her work as a place to practice this juxtaposition of discordant images, explore spirit and complexity, in an ongoing investigation into what it means to be human.

The cultivated chaos of Sears’ work takes a new approach in Jigsaw venturing into bolder jewel tones and interlocking abstracted forms. Each piece emanates feelings of nostalgic midcentury California in their palettes and forms, but are also referential to Sears’ Australian heritage that draws from Aboriginal art. The mixture of these two influences becomes a new vein in which her technique thrives, retaining a memory for her previous figurative work and abstracted landscapes while standing in their own right as something more.

carol-sears-front-rgb

Each piece of the Jigsaw series mirrors moments in our lives and worlds that are rife with detail, hazy from memory, and from radically different times, culminating in a piece of artwork that clicks a sublime experience into place. The soft gray backgrounds juxtaposed with louder colors are relatively new to Sears’ oeuvre, encapsulating a visual and stark contrast between these moments that exist in our memories.

About the Artists

Sarajo Frieden was born in Oakland, California and raised there and in Los Angeles, where she received a degree in Painting and Printmaking from the University of California, Los Angeles. She has exhibited throughout California in Los Angeles, Pasadena, Santa Monica, San Diego, Torrance, San Francisco, and Berkeley; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; and New York, NY. She has shown internationally in Melbourne, Kyoto, Rome, Naples, Paris, St. Chamas, London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Berlin, Amsterdam, and South Korea where her work was shown at the Busan Art Fair. In addition to the Golden Foundation Residency, she was a recipient of the Zeta Orionis Fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT. She has worked for several decades as a designer and illustrator, where her work has appeared in many different media and publications and won numerous awards.

 

Carol Sears was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1942. In the early 1960s she studied at Sydney’s prestigious Julian Ashton Studio. Sears moved to San Diego in 1965 where she was employed in the newly established art department of the University of California, San Diego. There she came into contact with experimental artists such as John Baldessari, Miriam Schapiro, Harold Cohen, and Newton & Helen Harrison. Since 1972, when she moved to Los Angeles, Sears studied life drawing at UCLA and sculpture at the Claire Hanzakas studio while exhibiting and pursuing independent studio work of her own. Sears was recently named by LA Confidential Magazine as a top artist to watch after her solo exhibition at Lancaster MOAH.

annenberg-community-beach-house-01-detailed-show
Santa Monica, CA. The Los Angeles: Detailed Exhibition will feature work by nine Los Angeles-area photographers.
The exhibit is on view November 15th, 2016 through February 19th, 2017 at the
 Annenberg Community Beach House Gallery
 (open 9am-4pm unless noted).
On Tuesday, November 15th, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, the public is invited to an opening reception. Light refreshments provided.
Live music will be presented by Eric Kufs.
Curated and organized by Mark Indig, Los Angeles: Detailed is an example and an examination by these nine diverse (native and non-native) who gravitate towards very different specifics of this ever-changing city and region. Often drawn to and obsessed by details, marks and captured moments, photographers often do their deepest and most contemplative work close to home. Saturated lifeguard towers, power lines, closed storefronts, abstractions of a marked landscape, architectural landmarks, intimacies from ethnic celebrations and street life – these are all a part of what makes this a vibrant and special space to record. This exhibition seeks the connection between the details in the photographer’s mind and the details of the unique landscape that is Los Angeles.
The Annenberg Community Beach House at Santa Monica State Beach is owned by the State of California and operated by the City of Santa Monica. The Beach House is made possible by a generous gift from the Annenberg Foundation, at the direction of Wallis Annenberg, and in partnership with the City of Santa Monica and California State Parks. Additional funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development. As America’s only public beach club, the Beach House is a public destination, open to all.
Location: 415 Pacific Coast Highway, Santa Monica, CA 90402
Parking: October: $12/day or $3/hour, see smgov.net/parking for details
 
 
City of Santa Monica, Cultural Affairs Division:
The Cultural Affairs Division supports local cultural events, nurtures Santa Monica arts organizations, promotes artist involvement in the community, manages cultural facilities and presents and produces innovative programs citywide, enriching Santa Monica’s reputation as an international cultural destination.

GDCA Launches the first US Exhibition of Danny Verete’s “Lost Kingdom”

gloria-delson-contemporary-arts-01-danny-verete-lost-kingdom-33

Celebrated Israeli Filmmaker and Artist Danny Verete debuts his breathtaking photographic collection “LOST KINGDOM” in Downtown Los Angeles a

Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts

Danny Verete’s images instantly transport you into the time and place of a forgotten world… once transplendent, now held together by memories and threads…. symbolized by the haphazardly woven-together patchwork seats of the iconic Indian Rickshaw.

Exhibit Dates: October 4th – October 30th, 2016
ArtWalk: Thursday, October 13th from 12pm – 10pm
Artist Reception: Saturday, October 22nd from 6pm – 10pm.

Danny Verete’s images instantly transport you into the time and place of a forgotten world… once transplendent, now held together by memories and threads…. symbolized by the haphazardly woven-together patchwork seats of the iconic Indian Rickshaw.

Their former beauty and elegance is underscored by their present fragility and distress. Verete’s eye sensitively reveals the patchworks’ richness and beauty as colorful abstractions, like visual kaleidoscopes.

Undeniable is the artist’s love for life, and for all human beings engaged in their various incarnations of struggle and acceptance. His images are imbued with a vitality and vibrancy that transcends their opulence of color. They impart a sensory infusion of the smells and sounds India.

gloria-delson-contemporary-arts-04-danny-verete-lost-kingdom-33

Verete is a consummate story-teller and his images speak volumes. His still-compositions cast an immediate spell on us, seducing us into time-travel to an imaginary world.

Similarly, Verete’s rickshaws have told thousands of stories – stories of their adventures with passengers, as well as their caretakers, their partners, their lovers, their family.

gloria-delson-contemporary-arts-03-danny-verete-lost-kingdom-33

Each patch is a story, a lifeline, adding up to a visual rhythm akin to jazz improvisation – where passion and urgency meet endurance and patience, desperation and neglect embrace loyalty and faith. Scars become beauty-marks; Vulnerability becomes strength.

Life will continue to write new chapters of the here and now, covering the memories of the Rickshaw’s glory days. Thankfully, their “LOST KINGDOM” is not entirely lost to us, as we may live in it – through Verete’s eyes.

 

Submissions for CM III are NOW OPEN! (Click Here for instructions on how to submit)
