ReVisions of LA with Michael Carter, Alison Rash, and Sean Sullivan
February 6, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
February 06, 2011
1 – 4 pm
ASAP @ LACE
LACE is located in the heart of Hollywood, an ideal place to observe and contemplate the collision of Los Angeles — its intricate networks hum with activity as resources are transferred and spaces are reconstructed through use or development. ASAP’s 2011 Re-Visions of LA drawing workshops will build conversations around how our urban environments are constructed and what that means to our every day lives.
Each month a new group of artists will spend an afternoon at LACE providing free drawing classes. All levels and ages are welcome as we talk about Hollywood while drawing our surroundings.
All workshops are free, and all materials will be supplied.
ABOUT THE GUEST ARTISTS
Michael Carter was born in 1975 in Cambridge, MA and currently lives and works in Los Angeles and Upland, CA. He received an MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2010 and BFA in 2000 from the Academy of Art University. Carter has exhibited widely both locally and nationally at venues in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston. Recent highlights include back-to-back group exhibitions at Roberts & Tilton, Steve Turner Contemporary and Greene Park Gallery’s inaugural show at Kunstalle LA. Additionally, he has been an arts educator for half a decade, teaching in different capacities at Pomona College, University of La Verne and Expression College for Digital Art.

Alison Rash is a Los Angeles based artist who grew up in rural Nebraska. She received her BA from Pepperdine University (2001) and her MFA from Claremont Graduate University (2010). Her work occupies the intersection among order, coincidence and manipulation, where the internal becomes external and the privacy of the mind becomes public. Her paintings explore the results of following systematic impulses as organizing principles often resulting on open-ended compositions that can evoke disequilibrium or self-consciousness. Her work has been included in exhibitions in Los Angeles, Japan and Italy. See her work at alisonrash.com
Sean Sullivan received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in 2005, and more recently his MFA from the University of California Irvine in 2009. He has led drawing courses at Southern California Institute of architecture, and The Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena. Currently he is working interchangeably between drawing, painting and digital media, and on public art projects at Los Angeles International airport and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) in Hollywood. He has recently exhibited at EGS gallery, Switzerland, as well as locally at LA><ART, Lora Schlesinger Gallery, and Steve Turner Contemporary. He lives and makes work in Lincoln Heights, California.
