"Movers and Shakers": Lynn Susholtz

my piece for the show: "Lynn Susholtz"
2009, acrylic and ink on canvas,

Last night was the opening of "Movers and Shakers" (SDVAN) at Art Expressions Gallery in Clairemont. Despite the weather a lot of people showed up and the place was packed. It was difficult to see anything and I guess I have to go back there to check it out quietly.

My piece for that group show is about Lynn Susholtz (Art Produce Gallery). Artist, art activist, teacher, gallery owner, organizer of events (dance, music, lectures, talks), she is an important actor in the San Diego art scene. I wanted a multi-faceted image.

Her gallery, Art Produce, won last November a "2009 Orchid Award for Public Art":

"When artist Lynn Susholtz renovated the old North Park Produce building into Art Produce, her plans included a "pedestrian art gallery." The long and narrow space has storefront windows along University Avenue,where the art is part of the street, the art viewer is also on display, and the activity of the street becomes part of the experience of the art. Places like this are fundamental to the experience of walking in the city. It creates a public space, a meeting space. It is places like this gallery and the view it shares with the street, that make walking in the city worthwhile."
