Ceramics Show opens June 19

Space presents unearthed, a group show of local ceramic artists. Brenda Holzke, Toti O'Brien, Jocelyn Webb Pedersen, David Prince, Nicole Ruelle-Oppenheimer, Rebecca Tager and Cynthia Thiel celebrate the organic nature and history of the medium - the happy accidents and surprises; the tactile relationship with the object. The work ranges from ancient-looking vessels to objects resembling things found in nature. Come join us for the opening Saturday, June 19, with a reception from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Art Opening on May 1

SPACE is excited to announce the opening of Our Shaky Civilization, with Animals - collaborative paintings on wood by a family of artists, Abira Ali, Gordon Henderson and Eliza Bee Henderson. The work depicts a shaky civilization where what we once knew as wilderness has been removed and reassembled to resemble a theme park. People and animals cohabitate in the small space they’ve been given, struggling to maintain their now irrational instincts. Opens on May 1, with a reception from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

On May 15, join us at 8:00 p.m. for Our Shaky Stories, with Animals - an evening of adult storytelling with members of the Write Club; Ramsey Brown, Lauri Fraser, Gordon Henderson, Jane Morris and Clara York. Hosted by Helena H. (This event contains mature content, so it's better to leave this kids at home.)

The Fall Arts Workshop session was a great success.
Parent Eileen Lee told us, "I'm blown away by the stuff that Eamon and Oona are doing in their classes at SPACE. Crazy good stuff. Thank you for being such a great resource."
SPACE recently partnered with SPEF to provide after school art classes at the local elementary schools. Heather Conyers taught printmaking (see below) and Marie Miller taught environmental design. SPACE teaching artist Jocelyn Webb Pedersen held a printmaking workshop at the South Pasadena Library. We love the opportunity to partner with local organizations to provide arts education in our community! Assemblage Class, Christine Chandler
