At the Tone the Time Will Be . . .

FOR THOSE of you looking for a little blog post inspiration, you might want to dip into the schedule for Pacific Standard Time. Linking art institutions across Los Angeles, the multidisciplinary/multimedia exposition explore the art scene in Los Angeles from 1945 to 1983.

Click here for the website and listings of panels, exhibits and performances that are part of the exhbition.

Just a week ago, I went to the Norton Simon and saw "Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California. It includes work by artist's Ed Moses, Ken Price,  Larry Rivers, Ed Ruscha, (yes, Michael F. Ed, Ruscha).

 I was particularly interested in learning about the artists who came out of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Hollywood run by a woman named June Wayne who just passed away last year at 93.

The workshop's goal was to revive the art of lithography by creating "a pool of master artisan-printers in the U.S."  What it ultiamtely did was both create a community and spark a renaissance.

Check it out if you make your way to the San Gabriel Valley.
