"Hot & Delicious"
New Paintings by Stuart Rapeport
"Our gallery wasn't booked for a month, so I could create something special for our place. Something that reflected the historic nature of community; my interest in drawing and the relationship between line and shape; the tension between the relationships of multiple pieces; creating a narrative in the imagination of the viewer--something that spoke of the limits of our environment and the possibilities of art as a solution.
But I chose to create impressions of pizza."
Join us for pizza art, pizza snacks (from Follieros), and a birthday cake for NELA Art's 3rd anniversary!

Silent Testimonies Contemporary Ex-Votos, curated by the wonderful Raoul de la Sota
"A Little Piece of my Soul" by Paula Banqueiro
Artists and community members were asked to interpret the uniquely Mexican art form known as ex-votos with contemporary themes. The artists and community members are from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds: Artists Katrina Alexy, Paula Baquiero, Barbara Carrasco, Ana Flores, Frank Gutierrez, Lucy Hagopian, Amy Inouye/Stuart Rapeport, Pola Lopez, Isabel Martinez, CCH Pounder, Joseph Sims, Cindy Suriyani, Eloy Torrez, Richard Valdes, Sergio Vasquez, along with Board Members Vanessa Acosta, Raoul De la Sota, Ulises Diaz, Kathy Mas-Gallegos, Poli Marichal, Lara Medina, Ricardo MuÃ±oz, David Stowe, and J. Michael Walker were chosen because they had no history of painting such forms.
Our piece is a contemporary saisenbako with ema and it wishes for peace, love, and understanding.
