Beverages and appetizers will be offered along with live music. Tapestry 2011 will be held at the La Habra Art Association Gallery for 26 days… from March 4th to March 29th.

The La Habra Heights Fine Artists and Artisans began 5 years ago at the hands of Larry Hart,Veronica Kortz and Janice Slattery. The idea behind the group is that it is made up of La Habra Heights’ residents who enjoy fine art in a non-competitive setting. Membership in
the group is free and there is no acting leader; everything is up to the group as a whole and everything is voluntary. The main mission of the artist group is to provide one another with encouragement at a monthly gathering where food, drink, camaraderie and art which is in progress or finished are shared. The group is unique in that it consists of people who work in oil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, glass, photography, ceramics, wood and more! There are approximately half men and half women. They are an active group of artists many of whom teach art, make a living with art and are in other shows as the Hillcrest Festival of Art. Most of the members have joined the La Habra Art Association which offers a myriad of events having to do with the fine arts: classes, demonstrations, programs and most importantly they host art shows! The La Habra Heights Artists and Artisans are extremely thankful for the continued support of the La Habra Art Association which has been host to the group’s annual Tapestry Art Show these last 4 years.

The La Habra Art Gallery is located at 215 N. Orange Street in La Habra (north of the La Habra Library) and is open from 1-5pm, Thursday through Sunday. Admission to the Gallery is always free.

 

 

 

 

February Photography Show

February 2 – 23, 2012

Another first for LHAA is this year’s juried Photography show! We are looking forward to some great work from the photography artists of our area. The juror for this show is award-winning, international photographer and lecturer, Art Suwansang. Mr. Suwansang is founder and CEO of Wedding64, a wedding and portrait service that runs around the world to “destination” weddings and engagements. Art’s professional work is both in film and digital, but he is also a digital specialist in the workflow area for professional photographers, providing lectures, articles and workshops on Adobe Lightroom. He teaches Photoshop and digital photography at Santa Monica Community College and the University of La Verne. Art will be available at the Opening Reception to meet and speak with you about your work and photography in general. You can see his work on his websites: www.wedding64.com and www.ro3rds.com.

The entries will be open to two divisions: Conventional and Technical. The Conventional categories include the traditional look from the lens in capturing portraits and landscapes without the software manipulation that you would use in the Technical categories involving the photograph as a starting point to create a new image. Photographers are encouraged to enter both divisions to show their versatility with the camera as their medium.
