THIS IS AMERICA
JoAnne Artman Gallery is thrilled to welcome America Martin for her annual Solo Exhibition this February and March! When thinking about what to name her next show, one word came readily to mind, “Applesauce." Although it seemed an odd choice, whenever you give America any compliment praising either her personally or her work, she always replies “Applesauce" in an “Ah shucks" kind of way. That is America: humble, gracious and so appreciative of all that surrounds her. This is so clearly evident in her work...pure joy...the color...the lines…the expressions...the eyes to her subjects' souls.
“I am inspired by bigger; boldness; dignity...I dream of colors," America Martin.
America Martin is a Colombian-American fine artist based in Los Angeles. She is a traveler between mediums, insouciant in the conquest of new terrain. Martin’s favorite landscape is that of the human form, her work is distinguished by a command of line and color, making playful reference to both classic and indigenous art forms.
America Martin’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize.
JoAnne Artman Gallery is located at 326 N. Coast Highway in Laguna Beach and is open Wednesdays-Sundays from 11-5, and by appointment. Visit the first Thursday from 6-9 pm of any month to coincide with the Laguna Beach Art Walk.
