NELA ART SECOND SATURDAY GALLERY NIGHT May 14, 2016 w/The Carlos Guitarlos Band

 

NELA ART SECOND SATURDAY GALLERY NIGHT

WHERE: 5526 NORTH FIGUEROA STREET, LOS ANGELES, CA 90042

WHEN: SATURDAY, MAY 14, 2016; 7:00 - 10:00PM

The May art exhibit features work by Elaine Parks, and Michael Falzone:
A native of Los Angeles, Elaine received her MFA from California State University, Los Angeles in 1999. Feeling the need to have a very different life experience, she relocated to extreme rural Nevada, where the sparse landscape's elusive beauty shaped her ideas about the human relationship to the environment. During a decade in Nevada, she exhibited at the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Oats Park Gallery, Fallon, Barrick Museum, Las Vegas, and the DIY art exhibition Nada Dada Motel. Elaine taught for seven years at Great Basin College and twice received the prestigious Fellowship Award from the Nevada Arts Council.

Michael Falzone is an artist whose career spans four decades and has crossed many boundaries. He began his professional activity after graduating from the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art, Newark NJ in 1963. In 1972 he completed his formal studies receiving an MFA degree from Claremont Graduate University. His art has been referred to, by LA Times art critic, Colin Gardner, as a "hybrid sensual expressionism" with roots and influences in Fauvism and Cubism. Falzone confronts the formal issues of color, scale and composition through implied interaction between figure and environment, the serious and the playful in anticipation of the poetic.

Also on display: Works by Miriam Jackson and Jessica Ayala Schneider. Katherine Arion will set up her easel to draw pastel portraits at your request.

Band tee shirts with vintage punk club graphics are available, as well as hand-painted tops from designer Marilynn Pardee's Capo Capes.

The exhibit is curated by Rafael Matias.




AND GREAT LIVE MUSIC by acclaimed Americana/Blues guitarist CARLOS GUITARLOS

THE CARLOS GUITARLOS BAND FEATURES: RICH Mc CULLEY, guitar, mandolin,vocals RICHARD MUNOZ, bass, vocals ADAM STEINBERG, drums CARLOS GUITARLOS, guitar, vocals

Mike Varney, founder of Shrapnel Records Group and Blues Bureau International says "Carlos Guitarlos is one of the greatest Blues/Americana guitarists of our time and he might just be a better singer than guitar player."

Cadillac Zack, of Southern California Blues Society says "Carlos Guitarlos is possibly the most prolific and soulful of American roots songwriters and performers today, if not all time"

Critic Jonny Whiteside says: "They don't call him Guitarlos for nothing--the cat wields his ax with flabbergasting skill, a mix of sophisticated technique and sheer musicality that allows him to employ a long-range artistic reach spanning a spectrum of impressive breadth, depth and height.

Technically, Guitarlos is unrivaled--he's capable of playing melody, an intricate bass line and beating out hot percussion all at once, creating a full-blown sound that positively dazzles. With a bottomless repertoire that demonstrates an intimate knowledge of almost every vernacular American music form, he also delivers it in a wildly idiosyncratic fashion that is as undeniably authentic as the hard-knock life he's led."

Karina Venegas says: 

"Lillian is not only a special person, she is an extraordinary human being. It  is kind of rare to find people like her now a days.

It is almost seems as if she had some type of magic, which she shared with the people she loves and seeks to help.

She sparkles this energy that someway touches your life In some special way.  I am a witness to the many lives she has touched and helped improve or changed around. This applies to animal lives as well.

Another attribute worth mentioning, her humbelness. She rarely speaks of her works.

I am very proud to have Lilian as a friend.  She has a soul of an angel and a heart of gold."
