LA Art Week Part 1

So this week is the big week here in LA, well at least for art lovers. The LA Art Show and the Art LA Contemporary are both open through this weekend.

I was lucky enough to attend the Gala Reception for the LA Art Show and am happy to make my first report about the prints and printing taking place at the show.

The IFPDA Print Fair is part of the LA Art Show and this is their second year to invite Dave Lefner to give a print demonstration throughout the run of the show. Known for his beautiful reduction linocuts of old and weathered neon signs around LA, Dave has set up an amazing studio within a standard exhibition booth. The night of the gala he was printing the first runs on a few of the small prints he will be completing during the run of the show. I caught a few shots of him being a good printmaker and cleaning up.

Dave’s creativity certainly came out in his quick and amazingly handy print drying system. I may have to steal his idea. Who know L brackets could do so much?

Also at the LA Art Show, in the non-profit section of the fair is the Los Angles Printmaking Society. This year Cathy Weiss curated an exhibition of works from area members including this beautiful book by Holly Jerger. Above it a little piece by Camilla Taylor that was mentioned on Printeresting earlier.

I will be heading back to the fair tomorrow to spend less time grabbing swag and more time checking out the art, so there is definitely more to come!
