Tour Celebrates Its Tenth Year!
Saturday, November 12 & Sunday, November 13, 2016. 12pm-5pm
  

LOS ANGELES, CA – Inglewood has become the fastest growing artist community in Los Angeles. It is also the fastest growing city, undergoing daily changes for and around the NFL stadium, Hollywood Park Casino, along new Metro lines and downtown Inglewood. The tenth annual Inglewood Open Studios tour will showcase the impressive depth and talent of this community on the weekend of November 12-13, from 12:00 to 5:00pm both days. As always, Inglewood Open Studios remains an artist run event, co-organized by local non profit Inglewood Cultural Arts (ICA).

On both Saturday November 12 and Sunday, November 13, Inglewood artists will open their studios to the public, inviting visitors to personally tour their private working spaces and enjoy art created in all media--drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed-media, photography, print making, installation, video and performance.

To mark our 10th year anniversary, co-founder Renée Fox will curate a group show of 2016 Inglewood Open Studios artist participants at Residency gallery, a new gallery in Inglewood, managed by Rick Garzon. With its second exhibition about to open, Residency has already had reviews in Contemporary Art Review la (also known as CARLA) and Artillery. The group show will serve as stop #1 on the tour route, and, as a preview of art that can be seen on the tour. Group show dates: Saturday, November 12 through Wednesday, November 16 with a closing reception on November 16 from 6-9PM.

An official map with Inglewood Open Studios location details will be available online, at Residency gallery and at all artist studio locations on the tour.

"ZERO DOWN" is a festive one-night art event taking place on Saturday, June 4, 2016, in the studios and on the premises of the 1019WEST Artists Studio complex on the Inglewood-Westchester border, two blocks west of the 405 at 1019 W. Manchester Blvd., Inglewood. This year the multi-disciplinary artists from 1019WEST team up with artists from the Beacon Arts Building and guest performance artists to bring alive the entire site for an exciting evening of performance art, music, group exhibition, installations, and open studios staged at the massive retrofit building. 1019WEST appeared on the LA art scene five years ago to exceptional acclaim within the arts community, and is situated in an area that is now known as one of the burgeoning art scenes in LA.

More than 20 artists' studios at 1019WEST will be open to the public from 5:00-9:00 p.m., while performance artists will be juxtaposed throughout the site during the evening. A group show and installations of 1019WEST and Beacon Arts Building artists will be exhibited in the hallways and around the site.

Food and drinks will be available throughout the evening, and visitors will find ample street parking. Walk-in entrance only on West Manchester and Hindry Avenue.

"It's always interesting visiting with the artists here at 1019 West Manchester because everybody is unique and there's no single style or point of view. You can tell who is here working on art from the cars in the parking lot, which is never empty. This artist's campus is right on the glide path for LAX which lends it an air of never ending industry. Plus, there is an LA sort of logic to having art studios in an old automobile dealership," said Scott Grieger, Artist.

Participating artists from 1019WEST are: Mira Alibek, Susan Amorde, Michele Asselin, Nina Chin, Clerio Demoraes, Jeanne Dunn, Claire Jackel, Steve Jakobsen, Rachel Kaster, Henry Kitchen, Stuart Marcus, Jesus Max, David Newcombe, Melanie Newcombe, David Peters, Tony de los Reyes, David Spanbock, Ernie Steiner, Lacey Stoffer, Liza Vosbigian, Pontus Wilfors, Ashley Wilson.

Participating artists from Beacon Arts Building are: Brian Biedul, Darel Carey, Matthew Carey, Dosshaus, Bibi Davidson, Sue Francis, Nancy Jo Haselbacher, Shelley Heffler, Deborah Lambert, Tahnee Lonsdale, Michael Massenburg, Jen Meyer, Alexis Murray, Calida Garcia Rawles, Dawn Rosenquist, Katie Sinnott, Ginger Van Hook.

Performance art by: Kayla Tange, L.A. Mudpeople, Vittoria Colonna, and Elizabeth Tobias.

The event is sponsored by 1019WEST/Beacon Arts Building management, Shoebox PR and Kristine Schomaker, and 1019WEST/Beacon Arts Building artists, including: Susan Amorde, Jeanne Dunn, and Deborah Lambert.

ABOUT 1019WEST
1019WEST is a dynamic complex of creative workspaces where 30 multidisciplinary artists maintain studios. Located in Inglewood, just west of the 405 freeway, the building is situated in the middle of the larger creative community of the Beacon Arts Building, Otis College of Art and Design, and Loyola Marymount University. The now retrofit building and grounds were originally the location of the first VW dealership in Southern California. More information can be found on the website at: www.1019west.com.

Pieceable Kingdom at Beacon Arts Building. Review by Ginger Van Hook

Pieceable Kingdom Artist Panel March 6, 2011.
Beacon Arts Building. Inglewood, California
Conversations with the artists about the work curated by David Pagel. 

A technically and conceptually strong show, this turned out to be a wonderful opportunity
to hear the ideas behind their work, process and inspiration.

      Being in sync with the universe is often a luxury, but in a curious way, the exhibition Pieceable Kingdom which opened on Saturday February 5th, 2011 is demonstrably in sync with what is going on with the art culture of the world. The show is the third in a series coined "Critics as Curators" by Gallery Director Renée Fox who is the new force to be reckoned with in the art scene of Inglewood where she managed to inspire a developer to open a new art gallery. This new Gallery called Beacon Arts Building is located in the center of Los Angeles County, California about five miles from the LAX Airport; through which guests arrive and depart to their destinations around the world from the Pacific Rim.  
      In light of a new revolution of democracy erupting in the Middle East, this exhibition opened and reveals a wonderfully diverse voice and collection of imagery which propels our melting pot of community into the flavor of change.  David Pagel, the renowned curator, artist and writer based his show on the term Pieceable Kingdom, while playing with the spelling of the word Peace. Additionally collaborating with the artists on the planning of the artwork that is forged from the very distant "Biblical" past and merging it with the contemporary world we live in, Pagel dug deep into the fabric of American Philosophy and managed to reveal a unique recipe for harmony.
     The cover piece created by Laura Krifka titled "Mine Eternal" is an oil on canvas 48" x 96"inches and hangs impressively in the center of the gallery, surrounded by some of her unique miniature sculptures nearby on three pedestals. The image is truly an image of luxury whereby the two lovers lounge in a bed of pink roses in the center of the forest. The male is resting his head on the female's bosom reminiscent of Greek statues. The female wears a luscious flowing maroon gown with blue and white stripped petticoat and a low cut strapless top which reveals her naked shoulders. But none is more naked or anatomically correct than the image of the male who is completely nude, eyes closed in eternal bliss. Yes, here the male is a bit feminine. It seems to reveal a switch in the culture of the sexes as usually it has been the female who is naked and laying in the arms of her male lover. Here is where Laura plays with our gender roles of the present. And she doesn't stop there. Her miniature sculptures are just as anatomically correct and naked and just as reversed in their roles as parents, caretakers and nurturers.
Her females in the sculptures appear to be turned on their heads, petticoats showing, children naked catching butterflies in the wind and clutching the father who sports an injury to the leg, blood seeping from his wound while he supports his wife, who appears to have a smile on her face and dressed to do the can-can dance.
