Ready to Hang Pop Up Art Show
By Robert Bernstein
"Ready to Hang" is the latest pop-up art show this season. At the Community Arts Workshop (CAW) which is better known as "The Solstice Workshop" at the corner of Ortega Street and Garden Street.
Here are all of my photos from the pre-show reception.
The event was especially designed for new artists like her to break into the local art scene. But plenty of more experienced artists were displaying their pieces as well. A wide range of art genres was welcomed with just one rule: They must fit into a 12" x 12" wall space.
He got plenty of help with hanging the art and with other logistics. But he deserves credit for making this event happen to benefit local artists.
I have known Matthew for decades from juggling and other circus arts. Rebecca had three of her artistic creations on display at the show. I have done a photo series of them at the Isla Vista Juggling Festival almost every year since Morgan was born. Since Rebecca missed the Juggling Festival this year, this was a chance to make the 2019 family photo!
