Momentum 2006

Founded at the dawn of the new millennium, Los Angeles based “Solids” is a collective of sculptors who have joined together to create a body of imaginative, conceptually driven works of art inspired by unified, show specific themes. Initially a group of twelve artists, Solids has grown into a touring group art show with a vast array of artists and performers as well as a strong following of collectors. The group endeavors to continually expand and explore the boundaries of multimedia art, focusing on untethered personal expression from new and emerging artists. Solids always strive to constantly redefine possibilities.

The sculpture troupe offers opportunities for inspiration and awakening using new perspectives on craft, design, and material applications as conduits for social awareness. Our shows include a range of disciplines including fine art, sculpture, installation, conceptual pieces, video, performance, painting, photography, music, and furniture to architectural installation. Solids has been staging large scale, multi-media art exhibitions at venues such as the Pacific Design Center, “The Space??? downtown, the 4016 Gallery at Sunset Junction, and LA Art fest in 2005.

Solids events draw a vast, diverse audience of characters, collectors, and artists who converge at our openings and mid-show gatherings. Our events, which have been featured in the Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles City Beat, are open salons for experienced performance artists and musicians who gather to create rarely seen performances met with lasting acclaim. Emerging from the underground Solids has attracted talent and enthusiasts who have witnessed the group???s evolution.

The upcoming Solids show “Momentum,” is a collaborative lens focusing on positive forward movement into the new millennium. Expanding our latest exhibition into the downtown Los Angeles “Bedlam” Warehouse space, to be filled by thirty five of our artist members, the show will be our seventh and largest event thus far. Bedlam will become a multi- floor gallery space staffed by Solids Artists throughout the run of the show. We look forward to an invigorating gala opening filled with music, dance, live sculpture, and ongoing performance art pieces.

L.A. Bridge Improvement Program Seeks Artists

The Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs is looking for as many as 30 artists to participate in the Bureau of Engineering’s Bridge Improvements Program, which will renovate or restore several vehicle, railroad, bicycle and grade separation bridges in and around Downtown Los Angeles.

  • Across the city, more than 80 bridges require seismic improvement or total replacement, and the department is looking to assemble a pool of artists to dress up the bridges’ concrete railings, lighting and sidewalks, among other elements.
  • Individual design budgets are expected to cost from $4,000 to $10,000 and, in some cases, artists may be contracted to fabricate and install their designs.
  • Since many of the bridges span the Los Angeles River, artists interested in the waterway’s revitalization are particularly encouraged to apply.

More information is available on the Culture L.A. website or by calling Becky Snodgrass at (213) 202-5544.

Opportunity in Italy for Artists

This looks like a great experience for an adventurous traveling artist. Have a look at their website. This would be an amazing way to spend some time indulging in your particular mode of artistry.


In our fifteenth year, The Abruzzi Mountain Workshop (Sep 27 – Oct 4) continues its innovative drawing/painting/mixed media program, IN VIAGGIO, on the intriguing island of ISCHIA. Situated in the Bay of Naples, it is known for its rich Greek origins, as well as its ancient thermal waters.

As in our other programs, we integrate the textures of Italy with mixed-media, collage & site specific work. We welcome both beginners and more experienced artists.

  • Mornings will be spent working from the hotel or in superb outdoor locations among cobbled streets, shaded piazzas and stunning Mediterranean promontories.
  • Afternoons will be available for island excursions and partaking of the lovely island spas.

The workshop will be conducted by Patricia Antonucci and Barbara Schaefer.
We are two New York based artists who have lived and worked extensively in Italy, joining our creative forces for a week of exciting and energizing approaches.
