Movers & Shakers à la Don Draper

Imagine the hands of time are moving towards 8 p.m. and the sun is setting behind you, giving the San Gabriel Mountains across the valley a lavender pink glow. The evening temperature is mild, the warmth from the day mixing with the cool entrance of night, and you breath deeply, feel your shoulders relax, and […]

Golden Poppies at 1905 Casa Roca

Golden Poppies at 1905 Casa Roca

It was called a “white elephant,”¹ but for a short while Pasadena had an elevated cycleway, something cyclists and environmentalists might pine for now. Horace Dobbins invented the California Cycleway, which opened in 1900, starting at Castle Green (Hotel Green then) and continuing for about a mile, near to the newly rebuilt Raymond Hotel (1901-34).

Xiem Clay Center is holding its spring fair on May 8th with artists who learn and create at Xiem presenting demonstrations and selling their wares.

Art on Palm 2015

“My, how you’ve grown!” This is an exclamation that’s been heard by the majority of us dozens of times—as we’ve visited grandma or family friends over the years, first about our own growth, then in regard to our own youngsters. But today, we address this remark to Art on Palm. Art on Palm began with […]

/Kuhl-er/

/Kuhl-er/

It’s all about color. Or as in the phonetic spelling of the word, /kuhl-er/. Nearly two dozen San Gabriel Valley artists, including Barbi Taylor of Pasadena and Robert Nydam of Sierra Madre, have examined “the role color plays in art inspiration and interpretation.” The resulting works will be exhibited at Jones Coffee with an opening […]
