From the Monrovia Association of Fire Art:
The Monrovia Association of Fine Arts and Paint ‘n’ Play Gallery are hosting a Holiday Art Sale and reception on Saturday, November 24, 2012. The gallery will be featuring photographer Stephen Coleman’s new show “Endeavour Moves Los Angeles.”
This show will spotlight Coleman’s unique take on the arrival of the space shuttle Endevour and it’s subsequent move through the streets of LA to it’s final home at the California Science Center in Exposition Park.
“This is a great opportunity for people to see Stephen’s work,” Bill Beebe, president of MAFA said. “He had unlimited access to the shuttle’s journey and can brings a fresh perspective to this great event.”
Coleman will also be donating one of a kind renderings of this historic occasion to the Monrovia School system, to be displayed in the local schools to inspire students to get involved in science.
“In addition, since this is Small Business Saturday, we have organized an Art Walk, featuring a dozen other local artists and their work,” Lisa Barrios, owner of the gallery said. “We at MAFA want to let people know that there are other options for holiday gifts than offered by the big box stores.”
“By shopping small, you are supporting local merchants and artists. People like you and me instead of a corporate giant,” Barrios added. “It’s a chance to Give the Gift of Art. A chance to give a loved one something unique. Something they can’t find anywhere else.”
The Art Walk and Reception will feature live entertainment, refreshments and demonstrations, as well as an opportunity to purchase the offerings of local painters, photographers, jewelers, and sculptors.
