LAA & PAL General Meeting
Monday, June 11, 2018 7:30
Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street, Livermore
Guest Artist: Anna Edwards, Abstracts in Acrylic Demonstration.
Anna grew up in New York City, and lived on Sugar Hill, a small enclave, north of Harlem. Sugar Hill in the 1950s and 1960s was an exciting place to grow up. She heard stories of all of the famous African Americans who had lived there during the glamour of the Harlem Renaissance. The neighborhood was home to Duke Ellington, his sidemen Harry Carney, Johnny Hodges and Russell Procope. Her neighbors, Helen and Russell Procope, adopted her as the child they didn’t have. They opened up a whole new world for Anna, of jazz and the musicians who made the music come alive not only for Anna, but for the neighborhood and the world.
Anna asks “How does one put on canvas the intensity of one’s experience? That has been an ongoing challenge. Exploring the universal Spiritual Landscape and my own journey of Spiritual growth. I share this work, inviting you to look beyond the formal qualities of the work, and enjoy the surface, textures and the intricate subtle- ties up close to view and see what I appreciate as I am creating the works, the details one cannot realize from afar.”
Our Meetings are Always Open & Free to the Public. Bring a Friend.
