#TBM Artist Interview: WAV Artist Vonder Gray

self
#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/22/10)
Vonder Gray is another artist at the WAV who has been involved with art and acting for over twenty years. Gray describes her art as “abstract expressionist”.  “The color, the brush strokes, the markings if you will, are all conceived at an emotional level that informs the work both on the surface and beneath the surface”. Gray went on to say that she “is always interested in what’s behind the façade of a painting and of a person”.

#TBM Artist Interview: WAV Artist Taras Tulek 1946 - 2014


our lady of black light#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/22/10)
At about 22-years-old, Taras Tulek pursued art for only two reasons.
“I wanted to help people. I wanted to challenge myself,” says Tulek, who will turn 64 this month.
Wishing to pursue a job that allowed him to assist others who suffer mentally, Tulek was on-path towards earning a degree in psychiatry. But then, he changed his mind.
“I decided that I could really challenge myself by being an artist,” says Tulek, who believes he could serve the same role of assisting others as an artist.
“I could then give the same comfort to people through art, and really express … the awesomeness of existence to other people.”

#TBM Artist Gregory Radionov

#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 7/29/10)
Gregory Radionov is a quiet, unassuming, incredible artist. His watercolors are alive with color and texture and energy: each one tells a story you want to know more about. Thank goodness Radionov paints in series so the story becomes complete

Review: McPherson’s Birds

PR 08
 
Theatre
Review
 
Santa Paula Theatre Center is featuring Conor McPherson’s The Birds through July 30th. For those Flying H Theatre fans out there, this is going to look like an old reunion, as most of the principles were also involved with the sadly defunct Flying H Group, now getting together for another round with this fabulous production of McPherson’s play.
 
 
The attacks contine as Diane (Kathleen Bosworth ) and Tierney (Allan Noel) struggle to survive in Conor McPherson's apocalyptic thriller THE BIRDS live on stage from June 23 - July 30 at the Santa Paula Theater Center, Santa Paula, CA.

Review: When We Were Young and Unafraid

wwwy 0011
Theatre
Review
The play When We Were Young and Unafraid is sort of a local legend. Originally a smaller project workshopped in Ojai, it was eventually produced off-Broadway in 2014. Its author, Sarah Treem has gone on to do television, including writing for Game of Throne, I believe. The play itself is a well-structured, tightly written play set in 1972 about women's issues, featuring four strong women's parts and a token male role. Though set in the 70s it is more relevant today than ever.

Delightful Bob Privitt Show at the Ventura County Museum

Art Review
Delightful Bob Privitt Show at the Ventura County Museum
Bob Privitt's solo show, Manipulations, brings another round of Privitt's well-known and delightful assemblages to the Ventura County Museum. Privitt has also had a solo show of his work at the Tool Room gallery at the Bell Arts Center when it was run by the museum. The current show presents a tighter, more closely related group of small sculpture/assemblages. Though color is not usually a key element in assemblage art, this show uses color very effectively to up the intensity of the visual impact to good effect.
