As the human body has been the universal starting point in Western art, trained in the Renaissance tradition of draughtsmanship, Roger Stephenson will show figurative drawings and sculpture.
Roger enjoys the discovery of working within the two and three dimensional challenges of representing the figure and how they inform one another. Of interest to him is the interconnectedness of parts--how the position of one area affects the position of the parts in other areas of the body. The body as system, the unexpected connections to arrive at an unexpected whole.
Roger Stephenson receive his BFA at the University of California, San Diego, 1980-1984 Bachelor of Arts, Visual Arts/Communication (minor: Mathematics). He attended the Art Center College of Design (Fine Arts/Painting); and has exhibited in the "Lincoln Heights Biennale" (group show) at deb3321 as well as recently participated in the "Open Call LA" at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery.
Cathi Milligan started her art career in the field of graphic design before discovering glass. Glass has since become pretty much all she thinks about. Her glass experience spans over 20 years mastering techniques such as torch working, kiln forming, and now adding glass blowing. Her glass experience has afforded her many opportunities such as television appearances demonstrating torch work and kiln forming, as well as macramé, writing a book (on macramé), and some public art commissions.
Cathi will show kiln forming which includes the process of fusing and casting. Color and strong graphic imagery dominate Cathi’s work. Her work is created in her Highland Park store, The Glass Studio.Cathi is also the publisher of NELAart News, a Northeast Los Angeles based paper devoted to promoting art and culture in the Northeast.
The Glass Studio is located on York Boulevard near Avenue 51.
