On September 13, 2008, a new type of art show is launching in Los Angeles. Artful Collective - a non-profit art organization - is having their premiere art show at the Coma Alternative Space with all proceeds going to Downtown Los Angeles Inner-City Arts charity. "Five Things" the simple title of the premiere show straightforwardly explains the theme. After surveying numerous people asking them to jot down five commonplace objects, feelings and ideas, Artful Collective asked four artists to interpret these common things using their individual preferred medium. The artists range from a mixed media artist, painter, photographer and paper sculptor. The opening night reception, featuring music, food and wine will be held Saturday, September 13th from 7-11pm, while the exhibit lasts from 9/13 - 10/12. For the reception, there is a $5 suggested donation at the door and all proceeds will go to the Los Angeles Inner-City Arts organization. Coma Alternative Space is located at 3503 W. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90019.
Artists include BiJian Fan, a paper sculptor, Mike Coulson, a photographer, John Hicks, a mixed-media artist, and Lisa "Nyla" Hicks, a painter. More information about the artists are below.
