Studio Upstairs was conceived as an opportunity to nourish creativity through figure drawing and to grow artistically with other artists.
Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Ten years ago, Studio Upstairs, a group of ten Southern California artists, was conceived as an opportunity to nourish creativity through figure drawing and to grow artistically through association with other artists. Over the years, this original concept has led to a more universal view of the necessity of art in our communities and in the world at large.
Several studio members have gained widespread recognition in regional art circles, as well as internationally. Now, their collective work, sketches, and self portraits are on exhibit at the Huntington Beach Art Center, 538 Main St, Huntington Beach, CA through June 23. The much anticipated group exhibit opened on May 18, welcoming throngs of art lovers, buyers, and critics. And patrons were able to meet the artists and view the show again on May 30 at the Center's Art for Lunch Event, boasting a packed house.
Review the collective exhibition at the Huntington Beach Art Center Tuesday–Thursday 12 noon–8:00 p.m., Friday 12 noon–6:00 p.m., and Saturday 12 noon–5:00 p.m.
The artists meet weekly for three hours with a live model to draw, paint, and expand their artistic skills. The creative methodology for members of the group is diverse, spanning many genres of art and media. Realism, impressionism, abstract expressionism, non-objective abstract art, color-field painting, and sculpture are examples of some of the approaches pursued by artists from the Studio Upstairs.
