La Mesa’s Biz Center Art Presents 70s-themed “Inside Out” Opening Reception Aug. 25Around the City, Bottom Highlights Monday, August 20th, 2012
Biz Center Art, the art gallery in residence at the La Mesa Biz Center, is featuring art based on the Biz Center’s funky architecture for its upcoming August show. Biz Center Art is going 70s for its juried show “Inside Out,” with an opening reception 6:30-9 p.m., Sat., Aug. 25.
“We have a very nice arrangement with the La Mesa Biz Center so we’ve decided to embrace the 70s architecture, inside and out, it in a big way,” Biz Center Art gallery manager Midge Hyde said. Hyde is making a special request for artists to submit art that “looks and feels like the 70s,” art that includes the Biz Center Art building, and anything else “up to and including painting on black velvet.”
“Our jury is going to rate black velvet paintings very highly,” Hyde quipped.
The 70s theme won’t stop with the art, according to a statement from the organization. People are asked to come to the opening dressed in their 70s best. A professional DJ will spin 70s classics. Hyde said she is furiously searching for a fondue pot she got for her wedding.
Biz Center Art is one of only a few galleries in La Mesa. Located at 7317 El Cajon Boulevard, La Mesa, CA 91942, Biz Center Art shows the work of local artists in bi-monthly juried exhibitions. Artists submit their art at the gallery to a jury of artists and art specialists.
“Art chosen for each show is hung for two months and seen, appreciated, and often purchased, by people who work at the Biz Center or come there for meetings and events,” said Hyde. “Opening receptions kick off each art show.”
Artists are asked to submit their 70s-themed work at the Biz Center Art gallery from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. on August 7 or 8.
