Art Emerging

3557 1/2 Motor Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90034
May 16th, 2009 - May 17th, 2009
Opening: May 16th, 2009 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


With Los Angeles a growing center of contemporary art, many emerging artists have relocated to the city, both to explore their craft and to use the city and its many environments as a focal point for inspiration.

Art Emerging 1 is a new showcase for a diverse group of emerging artists including: J Grant Buckerfield, Tatiana Bracinac, Megan Galiber, Susanne Melanie and Aurora Filipescu.

Each artist responds to their environment, both internal and external, with work that is surprising, fun and deeply personal. 

Jay Grant uses pop culture images and a quirky sense of humor to acknowledge the increasing swing in the collective consciousness away from patriarchal concepts of religion. 

Suzanne Melanie’s “Intervention” series uses hand-made bikinis that are then photographed in unique and unexpected locales.

Aurora Filipescu’s evocative paintings explore the manifestation of the unknown filled with uncertainty and the mysterious. 

Megan Galiber’s color-fused work gravitates toward subjects related to the city's culture and landscape.

Tatiana Bracinac’s latest work in painting explores light and perception. 

“With the abundance of art being made in the city, we felt it would be great to showcase this work in the hopes that it will inspire future community events promoting the arts,” said co-organizer Erik Gudris.

A reception will take place on Saturday May 16th, from 5-9pm. The event is free and open to the public.
