This one however, is not your typical art gallery. According to curator, Cathy Weiss, LA Print Space is a space dedicated to contemporary printmaking for the Los Angeles Printmaking Society, a non-profit print group.
“Not only will we be having exhibitions but we will have artist talks, demonstrations and be a place for gatherings for everyone interested in printmaking,” said Weiss.
The first exhibit entitled, Sea of Exchange: Ireland – Los Angeles, features a group of artists from both Ireland and Los Angeles, including artist Donal MacPolin.
“MacPolin will be coming from Ireland to build a currach for the launch of the Los Angeles Irish Film Festival,” said Weiss. “I was asked to curate an exhibition for the festival and so it all fell into place and with the timing of the festival it worked out to be our first exhibit.”
The exhibit will run from September 19 through November 1, but Weiss says the opening reception with the currach is something you don’t want to miss.
What’s up next for LA Print Space? A show on car culture is coming in January and a show with work from South Africa is in the planning stages.
“I am so thrilled to be a part of Design Loves Art and am so excited for this opportunity to have a space that will service the contemporary print world bringing work from all over,” said Weiss.
