You are Invited to the 4th Annual Santa Monica Art Walk on March 20, 2010
Beauty and Sadness ( 美しさと哀しみと)

Each year the city of Santa Monica sponsors an Art Walk at the Santa Monica Airport. Often the sound of takeoffs and landings from the tarmac mask the quieter sounds of chisel on stone and brush on canvas in the old hangars lining the historic airfield. A community of artists works quietly alongside the hum of rotor blades and the roar of jet engines. Hidden from the world at large on most days, on March 20th 2010 the artists that call the airport home will open their studio doors and let the public into their creative process.
I enjoy this day greatly. The crowd of visitors is convivial and eclectic and represents the diversity that I love in Los Angeles.
Last year I missed the event as I was traveling and gathering inspiration in Japan. A number of artworks inspired by this journey to Kyoto and Tokyo will be on display.
My studio is located at the Santa Monica Art Studios Hangar
Santa Monica, CA 90405
The event runs from 1pm to 5pm. Please call me on my cell at 415 533 1165 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to view my studio a bit early or a bit late. Hope to see you on the 20th. Children and friends of all ages are welcome.
