In The Works

Coachella Valley Art Center gallery space

So I met up with fellow LGT!er Mike McLain in Indio yesterday to scope out Coachella Valley Art Center for a show in February.  The space is big, with lots of little areas that could be utilized for video work, installation, and even performance.  I was introduced to William Schinsky, “Bill” as he is known, who is the executive director of the the center.  Mike will be curating this show on behalf of LGT!  In fact, It is Mike who had the idea of doing the show, as he has his studio there in the art center.  The show will be a survey of emerging artists from Los Angeles, but we plan on having some events: panels, workshops, and open studios to create a dialog with the local artists of Palm Springs/Indio and the artists brought in from LA.  February is when the Palm Springs Art Fair happens, as well as Modernism week.  If you are traveling to the desert for either event, we hope you take a minute and stop by the art center too.  For more about the Coachella Valley Art Center check out their website: http://www.coachellavalleyartcenter.com

Stephanie Meredith

Painter Stephanie Meredith had several works in LGT!’s show tried to nap on a cloud but fell to the ground.  The show explores the relationship between 3 painters’ paintings and their other studio practices.  In this case, Stephanie works with the abstraction of photography:  taking distorted photos of photos as a reflection of the abstraction of memory over time.
