NEW WORKS Show at 1450 Ocean
April 14, 2018.
Textile artist Huong Nguyen and I shared our work with the Public at the Camera Obscura Art Lab at 1450 Ocean in Santa Monica.
It was a wonderful round-up of our Studio Residency activities which took place January through April, 2018.
This post is a “send-off” of sorts to the Residency, which had a profound impact upon me, my work, and Life. Thank you, 1450 Ocean….
A tour around the Studio, as we prepare for our Show.
The spaciousness of space…tables for materials, and visual reminders, inspirations and cues.
The “spinning book” moved around.
Beautiful light off the Ocean flooded the glassed-in Studio.
I finished, if there is such a thing, filling my “sketch” book here.
