"How They Ran" Exhibit Opening at Over the Influence Gallery

Fabulous opening night for the "How They Ran" exhibit at Downtown LA's Over the Influence gallery! The turnout was great and it was a thrill to be in a show with so many other inspiring women.  

On Film: Getty Museum Video

A video team from Getty Museum enlisted Pam to demonstrate the encaustic paining process (pictured, a behind the scenes photo from the shoot) for a film that will showcase local, contemporary artists employing ancient art techniques. When it's completed, the video will be shown at the Getty Villa.

On Film: Broad Museum Video

I have exciting news: The Broad Museum contacted me after the opening of the "Charting the Terrain" show at the California African American Museum (CAAM) and asked me to appear in a video to discuss encaustic painting and the work of Jasper Johns (his show at the Broad closes this weekend - if haven't seen it yet, I recommend going before it closes). See the video above (also on the Broad's instagram). 

Art Show: Honoring Black History Month

It was another great show to honor Black History Month at West Los Angeles College, which I had the privilege of curating with Molly Barnes (pictured with me below) and Doug Blechner. I showed work along with inspiring art by June Edmonds, Fred Eversley, Mark Steven Greenfield, Regina Herod, Joe Lewis, Adolph (Kush) Simpson, and Holly Tempo.
