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."

For November, Bob Taylor Properties  is pleased to present bold, large scale, beautiful and intricately constructed mosaic paintings in beads and glass tiles, created by internationally acclaimed and sought after artist, Rafael Matias.

Born in Chicago, in 1960, Rafael Matias' ethnic roots: Native American, Mexican, Spanish, and French, are reflected in his vibrant art.  

1529722_10203931629558143_8213642937074268329_o_22203014204_o

Raphael began creating mosaics while living in South Africa.  His early pieces were life size steel sculptures covered with Byzantine glass, glass beads and found objects.

Raphael describes himself as a "...storyteller, writer, poet, who uses mosaic instead of words or brush strokes to tell my feelings and stories.  The combination of my pieces are about balance and harmony between man, woman, lovers, family, community and my dreams.  Always present in the pieces of my work is the heart representing the theme of love and forgiveness."

Live music for the event is provided by the Carlos Guitarlos Trio, delivering delivers Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Americana and Rockin' Roots; deep,true, driving sounds  brought forth from a lifetime of experience and hard living.

And out on the sidewalk. . . LIVE MUSIC by acclaimed Americana/Blues guitarist
CARLOS GUITARLOS and his band. . .

Los Angeles Times says: ". . .The technique is unmistakably sophisticated: chords and melody played simultaneously, the way Chet Atkins might have done. An old gravelly blues voice, perfectly cracked, effortlessly in tune, pours from the slumped singer. The truthfulness of the voice commands you to listen. . ."

LA Weekly says: "If you're going to name yourself Carlos Guitarlos, you'd better make sure you're a damned good guitarist. So good, in fact, that you can play anywhere, out on the streets or in a fancy concert hall, with the uncanny ability to pull from memory just about any blues-rock classic and, on top of that, play it in a style that's uniquely your own. And then, somehow, you should also be so good that you can write and sing dozens of your own originals, in all manner of genres, from bewitchingly sad ballads and deft Beatles-like pop structures to ragingly dirty blues and Latin soul. --Falling James"
