Revery & Memory

Friday, July 18 7-9P

Revery & MemoryCurated by Jordan Mullen, Revery & Memory showcases the work of 9 visual artists, exploring the many facets of the human experience and how they manifest themselves as memory. From distant memories to the present daydream, each personal and observed experience is revisited and repurposed. When revisiting a memory it can become present and alive, taking on a new life, a new form, and a new purpose. From cathartic mark-making to capturing the remnants of past lives of a particular space, new revelations are revealed. Monsters emerge, mythical beasts take flight, and portraits speak to their identity, all in the act of revery where the artists invite the audience to participate in a new narrative.

Featured Artists: Katy Gilmore, Mary Song, Nancy Hines, Lucinda Chalmers, Cindy De Mesa, Elizabeth Hornbeck, Justin Evans, Rachel Farrington, and Jordan Mullen.

Join the artists as they close out the show. Friday, July 18 7-9p, you are invited to view the art, discuss the artists’ process and take a piece home.

Art Walk: POLYchromatic

DeMonteverde AdMay is Student Art Month and the Loft is proud to showcase Sarah DeMonteverde, a student at Azusa Pacific University

A reflection of passion for expression, heritage and diverse colors envisioned through the creative process. Polynesian influenced work, embracing color theory and movement, paired with a live performance of traditional Polynesian dance.

Sarah DeMonteverde

Sarah DeMonteverde

Currently a first-year student at Azusa Pacific University, Sarah DeMonteverde is beginning her second year in the Fall of this year. Majoring in Graphic Design, with a passion to help serve in illustrating for a cause; aiding those who want or need more of a voice culturally, spiritually, or even just personally.

Creativity has always been a strongly rooted part of Sarah’s life, but it wasn’t until she started dancing Polynesian dance that she realized how vast her passion for the arts was, as well as the love I had for intertwining culture with fine art. Though not Polynesian, Sarah has made it a point to embrace the culture with an open mind, and a willing artisan’s heart to create her own style that is influenced by both roots of the tradition of the Pacific, and ideas for the future. Whether through the making of art on a canvas, or dancing to colorful rhythms, Sarah expresses wholly her deepest thoughts and understanding of what this life has to offer.

All art is priced to sell, including prints. Perfect for a Mother’s Day gift ;)
