Pacific Standard Time Opens

Across the southland, in over 60 museums and galleries, Pacific Standard Time opens with a variety of historical perspectives from the post war to the 1980's, a formative period that established the LA art scene. There are a number of exhibitions that are not to be missed and worth several visits as well. See our recommended posts in Of Interest

Steamroller Printmaking at OTIS College of Art and Design

Otis Steamroller Printmaking Festival ( a.k.a. Big Ass Prints) was a big success. A full day of steamroll printing had students and local artists busy filling the parking lot with large prints. Special thanks to Nancy J. Haselbacher and Linda Dare and to the exceptional Otis Print Lab, Maggie White Lomeli and Kim Alexander. Also thanks for  inspiration and practical tips from our visiting artist, Sean Starwars! See Photos Here!
