Opening at Avenue 50 Studio July 10: Women on the Verge

Collage, Dry point and Stitch work

Women-on-the-verge


Alpha Lubicz and Stephanie Mercado


Curated by Sonia Romero

Opening Night Reception:  Saturday, July 10, 2010 from 7:00-10:00 pm

 
Avenue 50 Studio presents, Women on the Verge featuring new works by Stephanie Mercado and Alpha Lubicz, and curated by artist Sonia Romero.


"Since I was able to successfully launch my solo career from the Avenue 50 Studio in 2006, I wanted to continue the tradition by offering the opportunity to Alpha and Stephanie, two extremely talented emerging artists."  -- Sonia Romero


Stephanie Mercado's work will include dry point prints, carefully scratched to create a rich tonal range and intricately detailed imagery. It will also include Mercado's latest sculptural installation, modeled after 17th century French fashion. Both the prints and the dress interpret and deconstruct the American Dream and our consumerist culture. The result is a body of work that merges fashion with works on paper and combines historical images with contemporary socioeconomic issues to redraw and reinterpret imagery that has, for generations, shaped our ideas of prosperity.

Alpha Lubicz is a collage artist who uses vintage imagery to create a new visual language, merging her own drawings with  imagery appropriated from aged books. Through stream of consciousness, she develops layered images rich with pattern and a sense of nostalgia.

Please join Sonia Romero, Stephanie Mercado, Alpha Lubicz and the Avenue 50 Studio for an exciting evening of art, friendship and wine.

Re: Expansion and Renaming of the Highland Park HPOZ to "Highland Park –Garvanza HPOZ"


City Planning Case Nos.: CPC-2010-943-HPOZ, ENV-2010-944-CE
Council Districts: 1 & 14

I am writing in support of the Expansion and Renaming of the Highland Park HPOZ
to the "Highland Park – Garvanza HPOZ". As a resident of the Highland Park
community, it is important that we continue on a path that includes a higher
quality of life. Preserving our communities' history and architecture has never
been more important in Los Angeles. Our hope is to be able to continue this
goal through the approval by City Council motion of the certification of the
Garvanza Survey and segue into the Highland Park – Garvanza HPOZ.

This has been a long awaited action for the community of Garvanza to become a
historic district in the city of Los Angeles. I fully support the Expansion and
Renaming of the Highland Park HPOZ to Highland Park – Garvanza HPOZ, 
Case Nos: CPC-2010-943-HPOZ, ENV-2010-944-CE.
