NCECA Reception
Thursday, March 21, 2013
6 - 8 PM


Lawndale invites attendees to the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) 47th Annual Conference (March 20-23, 2013) to a special reception for the exhibition REady MADE in the Cecily E. Horton Gallery.


The Trailer | The Bridge Club
Thursday, March 21, 2013

2 - 4 PM Interactive Archiving Station
6 - 8 PM Performance


The Trailer, a project by The Bridge Club collaborative, is an installation and mobile series of live performance works centered around and inside of a vintage camping trailer. The Trailer will premiere March, 21 2013 at Lawndale Art Center. This project embodies a search for what is distinct in  our increasingly homogenous culture, while addressing our simultaneous and conflicting desires for adventure and security, experience and memory.

Prior to the live performance (2 - 4 PM), the trailer will be set up as an archiving station to allow the artists to engage with the public in a dialogue about the project and upcoming performance. Visitors will be invited to contribute stories in response to a series of questions about objects, places, pets and memories that hold importance to them. Responses will be recorded in the form of handwritten text, sound recordings, hand-drawn maps and on postcards. Visitors will receive a signed commemorative item from the artists in exchange for these contributions. Contributed stories will be incorporated into the trailer installation and into future performance actions, and contributors will be encouraged to follow the project online (through the project website to see how their own contributions might emerge as the project evolves.

During the subsequent live performance (6 - 8 PM), audiences will be invited to explore the trailer installation and interact with its objects while the four costumed members of The Bridge Club are engaged in a variety of performance activities in and around the trailer. Performance actions will relate to remembering past or planning future experiences, seeming not to acknowledge their current locale. In this way, the live action of the performances will conflate lived and collected experience, and invoke the role of memory in authenticity.

2013 Mural   

On view March 15, 2013 - January 11, 2014 


Skywriting | Daniel Anguilu & Aaron Parazette

Lawndale Art Center is pleased to announce the 2013 mural on Lawndale's north exterior wall will feature a collaboration between artists Daniel Anguilu and Aaron Parazette. This project will be the third phase of the rotating mural at Lawndale. Both painters employ forms of abstract patterns in their work, though their individual approach differs greatly. Anguilu's intuitive approach to painting outdoor spaces results in gestural forms that take shape on the wall, while the clean lines and mathematical forms of Parazette's work  result from a more calculated approach to painting.

This project is generously sponsored by Kinzelman Art Consulting, Judy & Scott Nyquist, Deborah Perl, Mellow Mushroom and Power Electrical.
