Lux Art Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Thursday and Friday: 1:00pm–5:00pm

Learn about Matthew Rosenquist's artistic process, background and inspiration during his exhibition's Opening & Studio Series. An evening of wine, hors d'oeuvres and art. Be part of the Lux experience!
About the Artist:
Los Angeles based sculptor Matthew Rosenquist carves commentary on contemporary life out of rough-hewn wooden block. His process suggests a “take-no-prisoners” approach, much as his figures suggest self-snapping punkrockers on their cell phones.

About the Artist:
Reed’s work is guided by art history as she starts her process by doing extensive art historical research. She draws her subjects from paintings of the past, bringing small details of these paintings into focus by making them her subjects. Reed picks similar details from a variety of artists that worked in the same period, building a dialogue that shows how painters referenced each other, and how certain fragments of art history shape our contemporary understanding of art.Drawing on selected historic works, Reed states that these forebearers continue to be relevant today, while celebrating the arts lineage of which she is a part. Though trained as a colorist, Reed chooses to work in black and white.
Working with the education staff's teaching artists and inspired by trends in contemporary art, students will work on a variety of art projects both independently and collaboratively as part of the camp program. Projects will include drawing, painting and sculpture. Space is limited. Be sure to register early!
