Monthly Open Art Studio – Sept. 14, 2013

Margie Darrow Studio 344 E. 3rd Street Long Beach, CA
Saturday Sept. 14th 6pm – 10pm

The working art studio / gallery of Margie Darrow is a studio that offers a unique gallery presentation of artwork in various stages of completion by the artist. Visitors are privy to art and ideas in process as well as finished pieces.

Darrow has a unique ability to intersect the real with the abstract with pieces that showcase a eye for color. Her wide range of work: paintings, woodwork, drawing, and installation makes for an inviting and interesting gallery walk that provides a creative, eclectic and educational environment in which to explore.

Currently on display, are Darrow’s vintage inspired installations and art: “Vintage Circus,” “Hobo Symbols.” “Vintage Apothecary” and “Montage.” Visitors can enjoy and amuse in the lowbrow style of the “Tattoo Lady” installation, or find interest in Darrow’s recreation of an 1800’s traveling apothecary case or the detailed and delicate flora and fauna mono-colored designs of “Montage.” Then, become knowledgeable regarding the amazing system of communication created and used by American Hobos in the early 1900’s to pass information or warnings to “fellow travelers” on the railroads and highways of America.
Also featured are two of Darrow’s current commissions: California and David Hedden’s project “BIRD UP!”

Parking available behind 3rd and Elm lot for 5$

This event is in the Art Exchange building and in conjunction with the 2nd Saturday Artwalk near by!
