Scott K Smith / Bolt Barbers™ Barbering Exhibition / Jodi Bonassi @ Rowan Gallery.

IMG_4388I’ve been sent an update two of the other attractions at the Rowan Gallery Space. If you didn’t know it, there is an awesome little barber shop opening up at the Rowan, BOLT Barbers. Information on the new retail tenant and a collaborating artist are below.

This is said to be The Rowan’s LAST night of participating in the art walk as new tenants begin to fill our their retails space. We will miss the Rowan Gallery. It has always been a great attraction of artists and art appreciators. I know personally that in many ways the success of these shows belongs to Joji Dreyfus, the guy who took the reins of an empty space and opened the door for the temporary venue. Hat’s off to you Joji!
(Official Press Release)

Bolt Barbers™ Announces First Barbering Exhibition At The Rowan Gallery, Artwalk Downtown Los Angeles, September 10th, 2009

Founder & Chief Barber of Bolt Barbers™ announces Bolt’s first artwalk exhibition at The Rowan Gallery.  Bolt Barbers has teamed up with artist Jodi Bonassi, to display her award winning barbershop oil paintings at the gallery, located adjacent to the future location of Bolt Barbers at 460 South Spring Street in Los Angeles

Mohawk Matt and his team of Bolt Barbers will be offering guys free haircuts all night within the exhibition space.  Guys will be shorn in one of Bolt’s five vintage Koken President Barber Chairs, dating from the 1950’s. The exhibit including the live barbering will convey not just the look but also the feel of an old school barbershop, something that has gone missing from Downtown Los Angeles until now.

The artwork of Jodi Bonassi conveys the important role barbershops played for men as a social garage.  Jodi was inspired to paint barbershops by her own grandfather, Jacob Feldman, who was a Barber. She recently completed her ninth painting in her Grandpa Jake series,  which will be unveiled at the exhibition. Jodi’s goal is to complete 100 paintings in the series as a tribute to her love for barbers, barbershops, and her own grandfather. The first Grandpa Jake Painting, which was reviewed in The Boston Globe and published in Harpers, was stolen at LAX.  Since then, her Grandpa Jake series has continued to get reviewed and published in articles such as Flavorpill and other noteworthy publications.

The Barbering Exhibition promises to be a memorable evening, enabling visitors not just to see, but also to feel, smell, and experience an authentic real barbershop.  Mark your calendars.  Thursday, September 10th.  The Rowan Gallery.  460 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013.  Exhibit hours are from 4pm-10pm.

A HIDDEN PLACE

A-HIDDEN-PLACE_AUGUST_ARTWALK_SPECIAL_email

Inspiration

As the name may suggests the work I am presenting at the Downtown Art Walk might be found in a secret location but it is not, directly. A Hidden Place is an exploration of a reflection that I found in the music and meaning of the Album, Vespertine, by Björk.


Vespertine draws its name from evening prayers, or Vespers. (Björk, Vespertine) Listening to the album and reflecting on my own home life, my inner world, and the tiny beats with parlor-like dances in Björk’s music I found a muse.

I present to you “A HIDDEN PLACE”. The interpretation of the work is your own. I found image and movement in the music. These suggested, resonated with aspects of my self and life inspiring creativity and deepening my sense of home, Vespertine parted a veil between what is and what is not seen. Less about objects, more about feeling and flow I introduce to you my little paintings here. My evening prayers.

*Note about Parking Downtown:
Most streets have free parking (at meters) after 6:00 PM on Thursday Night. You will find that there are quite a lot of people on the street so you may have to pay for parking if you didn’t decided to take the public transportation in or stage your exploration of new art at a local’s loft / parking.
