Home Makers? An Exhibition of 25 Women Artists In & Around an East LA Underground Tunnel


July 12, 2014 6:00pm-10:00pm

Los Angeles (May 1, 2014)

Presenting more than 75 works by 22 female artists,

HOME MAKERS? is the first Los Angeles exhibition to highlight women makers in a setting free from the hierarchies that segregate fine arts and crafts. Curated by Renae Barnard, this exhibition connects women artists from diverse communities directly with visitors for one night only:

Saturday, July 12 from 6:00pm-10: 00 pm.

Operating outside the traditional art market, the exhibition will take place in an underground tunnel in East Los Angeles and provide 100% of sales directly to the participating artists. The tunnel walls will feature photography by Leila May, Maria Garcia-Clark and Cathleen Parra, paintings by Alice Maldonado, Elwing Gonzales, and Nicole Reyes, illustrations by Cheryl Angel and Olivia Healy-Mirkovich, and sculptural fiber works by Renae Barnard, Fang Li, Jacqueline Meyers-Cho, Kin Chen and Vanessa Fry.

The above ground intersection will be temporarily closed to traffic allowing for installation artists Diana Madriaga, Debbie Carlson, Jaklin Romine, and Olga Lah to take over the street. Ceramicists Sharon Hardy and Sarah Hagen will be hosting vignettes of their work above ground alongside fiber artist Cara Mullinary, Julie Roth and Julie Kornblum and sculptors/ jewelry designers Terina Nicole and Robin Little. Master of Ceremonies Rebekkah Waites will be spinning tunes all evening and introducing an exceptional performance by Jessica Ceballos at 7:30 pm.
