The Avenue 50 Studio is proud to present “Seven Beauties”, organized by artist/curator José Lozano.
May 11 through June 2, 2013.
“I had the phrase seven beauties in my mind for a while when I was approached by Avenue 50 Studio to curate a show. I know seven beautiful female artists whose work is spiritually and intelligently beautiful, and whose work I really admire. These are disciplined artists producing very wonderful art. My first choice was Kim Abeles who is my mentor. She was the professor at Cal State Fullerton who directed me toward the artist I am today. It’s an honor to have her in the show. This is not a feminist show. It’s just art done by women. Many different approaches and sensibilities run through this exhibition. It shows where women artists are at today in the making of art in Los Angeles.” — José Lozano
As a ‘thank you’ to the artists, José Lozano will be exhibiting his small portraits of each artist.
*During the course of this exhibition, Avenue 50 Studio will be screening the movie, Seven Beauties by Lina Wertmuller. Participating artist, Poli Marchal, will lead a discussion on how the movie relates to feminism in today’s world. More information on this screening will be forthcoming.
In the Annex Room:
The Avenue 50 Studio is proud to present “Explain Yourself”, paintings by Frank Gutierrez.
Frank Gutierrez, known not only for autobiographical work, but for art that questions contemporary thinking, has produced a new series based on the fairy tale, Alice in Wonderland. Painting in a youthful, contemporary style, Gutierrez uses iconic imagery as a vehicle for his commentary.
