DESCRIPTION

25 Women Artists Take Over a Los Angeles Underground Tunnel with HOME MAKERS? Exhibition.

Free art exhibit to take place for one night only on July 12 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Presenting more than 75 works by 25 female artists, HOME MAKERS? is the first Los Angeles exhibition to highlight women makers in a setting free from the hierarchies that segregate fine arts and craft. Curated by Renae Barnard, this exhibition connects women artists from diverse communities directly with visitors for one night only, Saturday July 12 from 6:00pm-10:00pm.

Operating outside the traditional art market, the exhibition will take place in an underground tunnel in East Los Angeles and provide 100% of sales directly to the participating artists. The tunnel walls will feature photography by Leila May, Maria Garcia-Clark and Cathleen Parra, paintings by Alice Maldonado, Elwing Gonzales, and Nicole Reyes, illustrations by Cheryl Angel and Olivia Healy-Mirkovich, and sculptural fiber works by Renae Barnard, Fang Li, Jacqueline Meyers-Cho, Kin Chen and Vanessa Fry.

The above ground intersection will be temporarily closed to traffic allowing for installation artists Diana Madriaga, Debbie Carlson, Jaklin Romine and Olga Lah to literally take over the street. Ceramicists Sharon Hardy and Sarah Hagen will be hosting vignettes of their work above ground alongside fiber artist Cara Mullinary, Julie Roth and Julie Kornblum and sculptors/ jewelry designer Robin Little. Master of Ceremonies Rebekah Waites will be spinning tunes all evening and introducing a special performance by Jessica Ceballos at 7:30pm.
