The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's Advocate & Gochis Galleries present:

Time Stamp: A Diary in Postcards 1998 - 2008

By Julianna Parr

August 7-September 19, 2008

Opening Reception Thursday, August 7, 7-9 p.m. Admission: Free

 

Los Angeles, CA, July 11, 2008 -Julianna Parr may be best known as Craft-Captain, the creator of the weekly "Craft Night" at Akbar, one of Silver Lake's most popular night spots. But for Parr, making fun, quirky, creative art is a full-time job; she  is also a serious commercial and fine artist, with clients ranging from major film and television studios to national advertisers.

Inspired by fellow artists who made a daily habit of creating art, Parr began creating a "postcard diary" in 1998. Now, 10 years later, she has more than 1000 individual, handmade postcards, with images inspired by everything from pop-culture icons to deeply personal events. Her new solo exhibition, Time Stamp, at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's Advocate & Gochis Galleries, is the first public showing of this collection. Opening with an hors d'oeuvres reception at 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 7, the exhibit will be on display through September 20. Admission to the reception and the galleries is free.

Proceeds will benefit the services and programs at the LA Gay & Lesbian Center.
