Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States. The LOFT is proud to celebrate the innovation, art and strength of African Americans past, present and future. For the second year, we present a very special show, We Journey.
We are honored to present new art from Photographer Trellis Evans, Painter John Lee & Metal Sculpturer Dan Romero.
They will all be displaying BRAND NEW works, telling the story of people’s journey.
6p-10p February 8, 2014
Three loved artists, unveiling brand new work, all in one night. Their art will remain up for the duration of the month (by appointment only) and most pieces will be for sale (priced for all budgets). Come out and meet the artists.
Trellis Evans of EvansEyePhotography is an editorial fashion photographer working with some of Los Angeles’ most beautiful talent. Last year Trellis made a trip to Ethiopia and was privileged to bring back a beautiful array of photos that warmly share the soul of those he came in contact with. Trellis will display both works side by side, exhibiting both the contrast and similarities of cultures. Both environments instinctly beautiful, yet both uniquely diverse.
John Lee, a seasoned photographer, is displaying a unique flag painting that will speaks of the pain, joy and perseverance many experience throughout the journey. John studied at the Memphis College of Art and is continuing his art education at the University of La Verne. John was co-owner of the innovative TwentyMilesEast gallery in Pomona, which was instrumental in bringing legendary African-American artists from around the globe, right here on our block.
Dan Romero, world-renown Metal Sculpturer, will be presenting a collection of new sculptures entitled “Busting Thru!” A collection of rebar, doorknobs, angst and flight. Dan’s work is featured through Europe. Recently, he worked with various artists in Germany, serving as the US Ambassador. You can find his work locally at the Sam Maalof Museum, the 2nd Street Sculpture Park and in his private studio located at the Pomona Packing Plant.
