Get the Lead Out

Kathy Olivas

Black Maria Gallery in LA is opening "Get the Lead Out" this Saturday night, August 2nd, at 7 PM, and it looks to be a great show. The show will feature sketches, pen & ink drawings, watercolor and some sculpture. From the press release: "This exhibition will give light to the artists’ process. Gallery goers will be privy to seeing how a finish painting, illustration or sculpture is born and develops. According to Zara Zeitountsian, the gallery director, 'Seeing how a finished work comes together will give the viewer a greater appreciation of how an artist creates. Making art and the artistic process more accessible and tangible to the public is something that the gallery is deeply committed to.'”

The show features a great roster of artists, including Bwana Spoons, Kathy Olivas, Brandt Peters, Jeremiah Ketner, Jen Lobo, Julie West, and many many more. And what's more, curator Ally Takeuchi will be donating a portion of the proceeds to organization Lunch for Life, a charity that raises awareness and research dollars towards a cure for neuroblastoma pediatric cancer.
