The Route 66 Gallery is holding true to its promise of new themed shows opening every 6 weeks. The theme this time around is “Art That Haunts You”. It is unjuried and open to the artist’s own interpretation of what is haunting. There will be approximately a dozen artists showing 36 pieces that they believe fit the theme.
The reception will be held in the Route 66 Gallery in Monrovia’s Historic Aztec Hotel. It will feature your basic munchies and wine. Of course the best part is this is all FREE! If you desire stronger drinks feel free to walk across the lobby of the hotel to the Brass Elephant Bar to purchase something stronger.
The image “Arched Walkway” is one of the pieces I will have in the show (yes, this is a little self-promotion). It is a High Dynamic Range image that was generated with the use of the Photomatix HDR and tone-mapping programs.
Details: Saturday 10/18 5PM-9PM. 311 W Foothill Blvd, Monrovia CA 91016. MAP LINK HERE
You may not know it, but that’s our very own Frazgo – too shy to toot his own horn, but me? I’m all about shameless promotion, so here’s the dirt on the 45th Annual MOFOMAFA “Celebrate the Arts” festival, hosted by the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts.
This year’s event is October 11 & 12 in the Monrovia Community Center, 10AM to 6PM daily, and features the work of 65 artists representing various media, with a focus on oil, acrylic and water color painting. Additionally there will be limited numbers of photographers, digital artists and jewelry artists.
Besides honoring Fraz, this year’s Celebrate the Arts is having a casual dress opening night reception in the Community Center from 7-9PM. A tax deductible donation of $25 per person gets you music, hors d’oeuvres and hosted wine bar (don’t forget to tip the volunteer bartenders).
