I was invited by my friend, Elizabeth, to go to her friend's art reception at the Audubon Center at Debs Park. What a hidden treasure the site is. To think I have driven by on the freeway all these years and never known of its existence. The hills have lovely walking trails and secluded resting areas overlooking North L.A. It is alive with the songs of birds.
Presented by the Arroyo Arts Collective, Birds of a Feather exhibits the work of five artists on the topic of birds. Artists include: Kay Brown (prints), Inka Bujalska & Rachel Siegel (card birdhouses), Jeanie Frias (mixed media), Suzanne Siegel (collage and mixed media). It is a wonderful intimate exhibit with unexpected delights. The exhibit runs through August 31, Tuesday - Saturday 9am to 5pm. Center address: 4700 N. Griffin Avenue, Los Angeles 90031.
The synchronicity of the day was discovering that Suzanne Siegel and I had both been a part of the 1978 UCLA Graphic Work Shop print exhibition. She was completing her graduate studies,while I was an undergraduate. What a small world, to reconnect again after all these years through a mutual friend. Also made some new connections with the possibility to do some printmaking again. Just goes to show you never know what the day will bring....
