ART WALK NEWS – MARCH 2017

SPECIAL EVENT

Laguna Dance Festival presents:

Flamenco featuring  Marcela Aguayo

Free performances during First Thursdays Art Walk
Thursday, March 2, 2017
6:30pm & 7:00pm

Join us as you experience an intimate night of flamenco and watch the artists personal stories unfold and feed off each other as each performer adds essential elements to this magical and energetic night. Their life experience will be shared with you through flamenco rhythms that have been passed down to them from the southern part of Spain, Andalucía. They will be performing Alegrías which is a happy dance, Solea por Bulerias which is more solemn and serious in nature and Sevillanas a folkloric dance of Sevilla that was later adopted into flamenco dance.

Marcela Aguayo has been studying different dance forms for over 15 years. She has studied and performed with the top performers in the Los Angeles flamenco community.  Marcela performs regularly in southern California flamenco tablaos: Alegria, El Cid, Tapas and Café Sevilla.

LGOCA

First Thurs March 2 Art Walk will showcase the ethereal artwork of Dodi Sy. 
 
Shrouded in dreamlike memories of his childhood in the Philippines, Dodie infuses the sights and emotions of his memories onto the canvas. A deep need to express his enigmatic visions led him to create works that invoke both the beauty and imperfections we encounter in our lives.
 
Colors bleeding serenely together while reacting to one another are amplified by strokes of darkness to convey opposing memories of both the natural beauty and urban decay visible in the Philippines. The complexity of blossoming florals, inspire ethereal colorways and ascending patterns that transcribe his introspection into our consciousness.

Edgar Payne (1883-1947)

Edgar Payne was one of the most important painters during his lifetime and remains so today.   His work is found in many major Western, American and European art collections.  He is revered as a painter, a teacher and a leader. 

The painting, “In Port, Brittany”, was painted during Payne’s first trip to Europe in 1922 -1924.  One of his favorite subjects were the fishing boats along the coast of France.  The impressionistic brushwork is a style that he perfected.  Known for his composition, “In Port, Brittany”, possesses a dynamic composition with its full view of the colorful sails and brilliant reflections in the water. 

Please join us March Art Walk to see several paintings by this master and learn more about the life of Edgar Payne and his contribution to American art.
