The work of the artists Michael Flechtner and Linda Sue Price, who both do all their own neon bending, demonstrates the use of neon tubes as an expressive artistic medium, and their different approaches to neon show two compelling and original viewpoints.
Using familiar imagery, symbols and words, Michael Flechtner creates art that serves as a framework for the viewer to see a new way to codify the world around us. Linda Sue Price uses abstract shapes, texture and specialty transformers to create work that is joyful, playful and vibrant.
The landmark Fine Arts Building is located at 811 West 7th Street in Los Angeles. The 13-story building was originally built in 1926 as studios and galleries for downtown artists. The Fine Arts Building is a Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Monument and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The original plans called for the building face to be constructed in stone, but terracotta was ultimately chosen as it would allow for more intricate ornamentation. The building features an elaborate two-story lobby of molded terracotta and colored tile with a fountain surrounded by sculptured figures and seventeen bronze showcases. The interior figures were done by the Batchelder Tile Company. Ernest Batchelder was a renowned Pasadena artist and tile innovator.
Refreshments/wine will be served.
