A symbol for beauty, growth and renewal as well as destruction, pain and loss. From magnificence to intimacy, a complicated relationship that is, ultimately of our own creation. LA Printmaking was honored to have the well known Los Angeles-based multi-media artist, Merion Estes, as our juror for this exhibition. Estes was the subject of a powerful 20 year retrospective recently on view at the Craft and Folk Art Museum;"Merion Estes:Unnatural Disasters". As Christopher Knight, of the LA Times observed, "in Este's extravagant paintings, not only do exquisite nature, abhorrent degradation, opulence and death coincide. They are inseparable."ARTISTS: Renee Amitai, David Avery, Cynthia Back, MariBeth Baloga, Curtis Bartone, M Sherwood Brock, Cody Cammbell, CathyJean Clark, Cathie Crawford, Sydney Cross, Judy Dekel, Beth Fein, Karen Fiorito, Kathi Flood, Leslie Gray, Dirk Hagner, Dale Klein, Cindy Koopman, Linda Lyke, Rachelle Mark, Diane McLeod, Jackie Nach, Rui Ogura-Lalli, Valentina Quezada, Janet Shlesman, Annie Silverman, Silvia Simmons, Kathleen Thoma, Phumelele Tshabalala, Sylvia Walters, Elizabeth YounceCenter for the Arts Eagle Rock2225 Colorado Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90041Hours: Monday – Friday, 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM
