Art all over townBottom Highlights, The Arts Thursday, October 10th, 2013
Sometimes there are so many small art openings happening around town that my column is best designed as a cheat sheet so that you can pick and choose what to see. This week is one of those times. So here goes!
Art Produce in North Park. Community artist Cindy Zimmerman presents Time Came Around, a creative installation without a clear endpoint, a series of riffs on time, play, attachment and change featuring altered patio furniture, paintings, assemblages and zines. You might have noticed the changes happening at this space on University Avenue famous for its massive window display. There’s a new café, but the art remains constant! artproduce.org
The Artisan Collection Gallery in North Park. Richard “Dick” Greene is exhibiting 15 images titled The Santa Fe Series. The work is part of a larger project called the Cracks Series whereby selected photos of sidewalk cracks enhanced with tiny fantasy architecture found by the viewer after a second glance. The Santa Fe Series presents famous historical structures in and around the New Mexico capital city. The cracks were all photographed in the city’s central plaza.
First Unitarian Universalist Bard Hall Art Guild features the work of Duke Winsor, Wade Harb and Stanley Pearce through the month of October. For future reference the Bard Hall Reception is always on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30-9 p.m. The October reception is over but the work is still up. Artists are welcome though and they should bring up to three pieces of their work for the discussion period following the reception.
New Children’s Museum, downtown San Diego. Classes are up and running at the local colleges and UCSD continues to present interesting work at their on-campus galleries. What caught my attention this week, however is what is happening off campus. Visual Arts alumni will be participating in Feast: The Art of Playing with your Food with an opening reception Oct. 13 from 12 – 6 p.m. Alumni Ross Karre, Nina Waisman and Joe Yorty are featured in Feast. Karre presents the Sound Kitchen, an interactive studio where visitors can create their own musical creations. Waisman installed Orange we… a play structure that was inspired by oranges. Yorty co-presents Dinner T.V., the combination of a screening room and an iconic dinner table. Feast examines our relationship to food and eating in inventive and unexpected ways. To learn more about the participating artists in this exhibition please visit the New Children’s Museum Web site at thinkplaycreate.org
Have a great week and bon appétit!
