ArtFiction: Ten Fictional Modernists from Texas

Lawndale Art Center

September 9 - October 22, 2016

A multi-faceted project developed by Rino Pizzi. The show explores the affect biography has on the public perception of an artist's work:"Ten writers were invited to write about ten fictional Texas artists supposed to be living and working any time between the 1940's and the early 1980's. Ten actual artists responded by creating work that could be attributed to the imagined artists, and ten actors sat for photographic portraits of the fictional personas. Ten actors studied the biographies and impersonated the artists for photo sessions in photographic styles current with their time and consistent with their personas."Participating writers: Robert Faires, Steve Harrigan, Kirk Lynn, Janis Bergman-Carton, Kurt Heinzelman, Katie Robinson Edwards, Pete Gershon, Saundra Goldman, Mary Mikel Stump and Edward Carey, Annette DiMeo CarlozziParticipating artists: Sydney Yeager, Jules Buck Jones, Steve Wiman, Liz Ward, Caroline Wright, Stella Alesi, and Rick Mansfield, Brett Brookshire, Leon Alesi and Amy MorrowParticipating actors: Nadine Mozon, Jeff Mills, Jason Phelps, Florinda Bryant, Cami Calys, Teresa Elliott, William Tucker, Jennifer Balkan, Van Harrison, William Hoover and Amy Morrow

Russell Etchen: About ___ Rocks

Lawndale Art Center

February 27 - January 16, 2017

Etchen says the mural "represent[s] Us, You, Me. How so many of our lives have been distilled to one box or another. How individualism is an illusion. How we're parts of a bigger whole. How we've actually become digital heads-in-a-box-The Profile Picture. An avatar on screen. Floating EYES looking at everything."
