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 ARTISTS
So On and So Forth was the creation of a group of young artists with the intent of making an impact in the Los Angeles art community. The members of the collective are diverse in their individual practices but are brought together by a shared passion for art and a sense of community awareness. So On and So Forth weaves its own path in an art world riddled with rules and preconceptions.??Established in 2010 by Manny Guardado, the collective has been a grassroots operation, growing naturally and spontaneously. So On and So Forth has had a series of phantom galleries throughout Los Angeles and continues its mission of bringing art to the community. Find out more on www.SoForthSoOn.wordpress.com
Representing the collective and leading the workshop are artists Nate Geare and Jenna Westra.
Nate Geare is a UCLA graduate whose practice includes painting, collage, and mixed media. He currently manages and operates Renegade Gallery located in Palm Springs CA. www.therenegadeartgallery.com
