The View of Susan Kallenbach

The View of Susan Kallenbach

  We were delighted when Susan Kallenbach agreed to share her photographs as we find them popping with color, peeking with texture, shying with shadow—and moody, so very moody. Enjoy.                         Kallenbach studied Medieval Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison, worked at Caltech, and currently lives […]

Laura Brody: Wheelchair Art

Laura Brody: Wheelchair Art

HP: “Wheelchair art” – what does that mean? Laura Brody: I take old wheelchairs, walkers, and mobility scooters and re-imagine them as sculptural works of art. I’ve been calling it “mobility art”, and it’s about new ways of looking at mobility and disability. I started paying serious attention to disability devices after a former partner […]

Beauty from the Ashes

Beauty from the Ashes

Artist’s Statement I chose the name “Beauty from the Ashes” because it resonated with me as a poignant description of my life and my artistic journey. Before I rediscovered my creativity, I lived a very small and isolated life. When I began to make art again (after years of repressing it), the thought never crossed […]

Artist Residency at The Andalucia with Holly Boruck

HP: What is this residency, exactly? Through what organization, for how long, and are there any requirements? Holly: In general, an ‘artist residency’ is where an artist goes outside of their normal studio space and inhabits an alternative space so that they can have time to experiment with materials, explore ideas, do research on future […]

California Art Club & Merrell Gage

California Art Club & Merrell Gage

The California Art Club, headquartered in Pasadena, has nine chapter locations up and down the state. In 1909, the Painters’ Club of Los Angeles formally ended, yet some members believed that a need existed still for “artists living in Southern California to meet and share their ideas, and to exhibit together.” In this version of the club […]

2016 Art on Palm

2016 Art on Palm

One of the art events we love to attend is the biannual Art on Palm held down the hill in a secluded nook called Wildwood Park. It’s small, intimate, and full of arts and crafts from painters, tile makers, and ceramicists to jewelers, weavers, and clothing designers. It’s hard to choose what humorous tile we […]
