Fall Brewery Artwalk Sneak Preview Show

At I-5 Gallery

October 2, 2009 7PM to 10PM

October 2, 2009 to October 25, 2009

The Brewery Artwalk Association is pleased to announce the ‘Fall Brewery Artwalk Sneak Preview’ show of new work by artists that reside and/or have studios at The Brewery Arts Colony. As a precursor to the upcoming Artwalk the weekend of October 24-25, 2009, over 40 artists are exhibiting their work at I-5 Gallery. In most cases, the exhibiting artists have studios that will be open during the Artwalk. In a few rare instances, artists that have studios (which will be closed during the Artwalk) have chosen to be exhibited in this show.

This is a great opportunity to visit The Brewery Arts Colony, get familiar with the I-5 Gallery and perhaps enjoy a bite at Barbara’s At The Brewery Restaurant before or after the show. Then you will be prepared for the upcoming Fall Artwalk, October 24-25 and in the know about the artist studios you wish to visit first.

See you on Friday, October 2 at 7PM.

MFA Conversations II

MFA Conversations Part II

At I-5 Gallery

July 17th, 2009 7PM to 10PM

July 17 to September 11, 2009

Artist Talks: July 25 and August 22

2PM to 4PM

Conversation:  (NOUN) 1. An informal spoken exchange of thoughts and feelings; a familiar talk.

2. Social intercourse; close association. 3. Rare. Close acquaintance, as with an

object of study.

I-5 Gallery is pleased to announce the second in the “MFA Conversations” series of shows being offered this summer through the fall of 2009. MFA Conversations Part II continues to explore the abundance of MFA programs in the Southern California area from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Despite their shared geography, these programs represent a range of diverse offerings, foci, students, and work. While such diversity yields richness, it can also have an isolating effect on students from these institutions, who do not have many opportunities to interact in the greater southern California arts community.

Curator Marla Koosed explains: “MFA Conversations Part II builds on the foundation established by Part I’s show and artist conversations and will offer another opportunity for dialogue among the artists and their works. It will also offer visitors to the gallery an exceptional opportunity to see an edited sample of some of the finest work being produced by Southern California MFA Graduates. While most MFA shows are up for a limited period of time; Part II will be up for 2 months. This allows time for the scheduled artist talks, for the participants to discuss their work, each others’ work, and to share those conversations with a wider audience, the public.” Artist talks are scheduled from 2PM to 4PM on Saturday, July 25th and Saturday, August 22nd.

On the heels of Part I, MFA Conversations Part II will show work from 7 schools; Art Center College of Design, UC Los Angeles, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, UC Riverside, Otis and Calarts. This show is not a survey or comprehensive of all the graduates: Instead, studio visits for all eligible candidates for this show were conducted, and participants were chosen from that pool. The intimate space of the I-5 Gallery allows for an exhibit like this to function and for the works to interact by the space they cohabit.

The MFA Conversations series will conclude with a third show, Professor Dialogues that will feature select works from faculty of the 15 schools and will take place Winter 2010. Stay tuned….
