I'm thrilled to have my painting, Rose Avenue Palm Springs, included in the 7th annual Cityscapes group show at the George Billis Gallery on La Cienga in Los Angeles. It's a fantastic gallery and the show is up till August 19th.
If you are in Palm Springs please join us for the opening reception of our show Alternative Landscapes at the Galleria. Lynda Keeler's work focuses on the intersection of the natural and built environment in the desert with a series of map based large paintings along with a group of abstractions that capture the street facing yards and facades of mid century modern homes in Palm Springs.
12 Months is a group show featuring 10 Los Angeles Art Association artists. I installed 40 Color Maps salon style and they made an amazing show of color and composition.
I was thrilled to be included in Art Marks the Spot at Makerville. Art Marks the Spot is an art event that is parallel to DesertX in Palm Springs. I have three pieces included in the show and you can find out more about it at http://www.makervillestudio.com
I've started a new series of maps based on a more removed view of the area. This first painting was the view of our Palm Springs neighborhood looking down from a hiking trail. The painting is 5 feet by 6 feet and in acrylic.
These two pieces are new examples of my painting and collage work. The Girl on Bike painting is from a trip to Stockholm in Oct 2013 and is one of many photos of women biking all over the city. It's quite impressive how many bikers there are in the major cities of Europe certainly compared to Los Angeles. The collage, Intermix Spring 2014, is part of a series of collages that I create from fashion catalogs. I try not to have too many recognizable images but rather work with shapes and colors to create an interesting composition
I'm excited to share my artwork and paintings and work from friends and other artists I admire. In addition there are lots of gallery and museum shows and events that I'm fortunate to attend or am interested in that I'll feature. Plus, other types of salons, parties, happenings or whatever that take place in Southern California and beyond.
