Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Art, Workshops, Music & Food
at the Santa Monica Airport Artwalk 2012
Saturday, March 17, 12-5pm


Each year the city of Santa Monica sponsors an Art Walk at the Santa Monica Airport. At the airport 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 17th 2012 the artists that call the airport home will once again open their studio doors and let the public into their creative process. I am fortunate to have an intelligent, talented and caring group of artists and gallerists around me. When the news of the world threatens to throttle our creative souls, a shared artistic community can help keep us on the path.

I enjoy this day greatly. The crowd of visitors is convivial and eclectic and represents the diversity that I love in Los Angeles. Children and friends of all ages are welcome.

My studio is located at the Santa Monica Art Studios Hangar
Studio #15

Santa Monica, CA 90405

The event runs from 12pm to 5pm. Hope to see you on March 17, 2012!

The airport has developed over time into an arts incubator, and is home to a number of creative venues housed in converted airplane hangars. More than 60 local artists and performers will have their private studios and works on view. Painting, sculpture, ceramics, and mixed media will be represented and many artists will be selling work from their studios and offering refreshments.
