Sculptors Painting Opening reception: Friday, May 17, 6 – 9pm Gallery hours: Saturday, May 18 through Thursday, May 23, 12 – 6pm Painting event by Zoe Koke: Sunday, May 19, 2 – 5pm Sculptors Painting features 33 LA sculptors who were challenged to drop their Festools and take up the brush and palette. The artists were given complete freedom with one restriction: no 3D elements; ONLY oil or acrylic on canvas/linen/panel. The goal was to explore a foreign medium and inspire experimentation outside of the artists’ comfort zones. The works on view should therefore be read as paintings by artists accustomed to working in three dimensions. Different questions arise: How do ideas live in 2D versus 3D? How does embodied knowledge of mass and form translate onto canvas? Do style and identity transcend medium? Sculptors Painting is an exercise in play, breaking from the familiar and encouraging lightness. Zoe Koke will be teaching a painting lesson on Sunday, May 19 from 2 – 5pm. Participants are asked to bring their choice surface: a primed canvas/panel/paper and paint: oil paint, acrylic paint, or watercolor. Limited canvas paper and materials will be available. The topic will be painting as a gesture to heal the body.
