Okay, Elysian Valley is a smidgen past the borders of our own San Gabriel Valley, but we figured Frogtown and its 7th Annual Artwalk could get a pass for the day.
Along the L.A. River to the East, paralleling the 5 Freeway on the West, and zipping through working class neighborhoods right next to industrial buildings, Frogtown Artwalk on Sept. 22nd will have 30 artists and craftsmen opening their studio doors to the public. This year there will also be moving galleries or “pods” along the main street of Blake Avenue.
Emette Rivera and Donna Pungprechawat are partners at reMADE Studios, located along Pirtle Alley at 1863 Blake Avenue. The images of their couches, chairs and tables suggest a love of craft, creating objects by hand (one of a kind), a combination of retro and modern, and an emphasis on delicate lines and curves. For a completely different vein, head to Coolidge Avenue and RAC Design Build Studio to see Corrie Gregory‘s “visual stories” using found objects such as century-old prescriptions and “relics from her family.”
Saturday, Sept. 22nd, 4-9 p.m. (plus after-hours events)
