Summer Artwalks in Canoga Park

Written by

Canoga Park Artwalk

For the fourth summer in a row 11:11 A Creative Collective has been producing an artwalk/block party at Sherman Way and Owensmouth on the third Thursday of the month. Third Thursdays features over 150 independent SFV artists, musicians, muralists, crafters, artisans and merchants. I have been an exhibiting artist every year and last summer I produced an open mic, art show, and a theatrical production of “8” at the Emerson UU Church at the tip of the art walk. I will be producing open mic nights this summer as well. I love seeing the people in the streets, the street art and music, and the food trucks. It gets bigger every year, featuring edgier art and music, which I believe is very, very good for the Valley.

Losing control and loving it.

Have you ever considered that all that “puling up” and “holding your center” could be causing you neck, back, chest, jaw or rib pain? Do you run out of breath easily? This may be caused by tension in your diaphragm.

Carol Goldman found a way to pursue all of her career passions. Yes, Carol is a visual artist but she is also an accomplished actor and designer. She trained under the famed Sandford Meisner and was an actress on New York stages and outside of her beloved city. In Chicago, she performed with a joyful talented group of actors as a member of David Mamet's St Nicolas Theater Company, as well as being a winner of a Joseph Jefferson Award. In Los Angeles, she performed on TV as a guest, semi regular and recurring on sitcoms and episodics, as well as acted in commercials, on stage and in films. After a 6 year hiatus, Carol has returned to the business of acting and is now a member of the well known Road Theatre Company.

Do you love “being an actor” or do you love to act?

When I first became an actor, I often heard this said: “Writers write, directors direct, and actors talk about acting.” I was furious, angry, I hated that statement, and I still do. I found it insulting, and degrading to actors. How dare anyone make that claim! I was dedicated. I didn’t even understand that statement, so let’s talk about it. Is your choice to be an actor ego based? Is your soul called to act? Is it a combination of the two? Where do you stand (or better yet, how are you living your life?) in relation to that statement?

James Monroe High School’s Drama College has been invited to perform as part of the American High School Theatre Festival at the Fringe Festival, in Edinburgh, Scotland, next summer. Monroe High School is the only LAUSD school to be invited, an honor bestowed upon only 20 high schools nationwide each year. This honor reflects both the outstanding efforts of the students and the standout leadership of theatre teacher and director, Jason Hayes.

I have had some tough, tough days on set. 

For lot’s of different reasons.

But most of the time there are three major reasons why a tricky shoot can become an uphill battle, start to finish.

Most of the time when I feel too paralyzed to take action it’s because I doubt myself.

Remembering the ‘Art’ in Sequential Art

Written by

Watchmen Smiley Face

Throughout the past 50 years, the sequential art medium has struggled to be identified as a legitimate form of literature, despite its rich history of depicting and confronting issues that impact social and political change. Once considered to be a medium targeted only towards children, comic books and their subject matter have matured with the industry’s own evolution, demonstrating to fans and critics alike that the comic book is an outlet for frank discussion of important, and sometimes taboo, topics. While it may be easy to quantify the impact that comic book storylines have had on readers and our society as a whole, the artwork of the medium can sometimes be overlooked, diminishing both the creativity and skill required of the artists, as well as the significance that imagery holds within the storytelling process.

Making a film should be, in my humble opinion at least, as daring and as bold and as seemingly impossible as trying to catch lightning in a bottle. And when done right, the results are just as beautiful as what I would imagine lightning would look like, captured and bottled. But as difficult as that might seem, and I am no physicist...I’m pretty sure catching lightening is actually impossible. What I am really reaching for is the concept of setting your expectations really, really high and to not be afraid of that.

Kristi Tornga is a friend and colleague of mine from CalArts. She is an exceptionally talented artist, and it has been incredible to watch her professional progression. She left LA for the Big Apple in 2010, and realized her dreams by dancing with the Paul Taylor Dance Company this season, including performances at the infamous Lincoln Center. Kristi shares her experience as a modern dancer in NYC with NoHoArtsDistrict.com, providing a behind-the-scenes look at the contemporary dance side of the coin and what’s helped her along the way.

Actors - Are you a success?

My past three blogs have been about the business of being an actor. I’m going to jump forward here and talk briefly about how we define a successful actor. Better yet, what is success? How do you define it?

11:11 A CREATIVE COLLECTIVE (11:11) and RESEDA RENAISSANCE will present an artist panel discussion entitled, “The New Deal: Art in Public” at 5:00 p.m. on May 24, 2014 at the 11:11 ACC Traveling Gallery in Tarzana. Moderated by Patrick Polk, Curator of Latin American and Caribbean Popular Arts at UCLA’s Fowler Museum, the panel will discuss how public art is thriving in the new paradigm of the micro art economy, the unique challenges of preservation and how art in public spaces continues to create powerful and controversial statements, making way for new dialogues to be explored.

Spring Into Action! 5 steps towards that TV job you always wanted

It’s SPRING! I know you may be reading this and thinking spring???? It’s still snowing, or its already summer here, but you know what I’m talking about. Game of Thrones and Mad Men just started their new season! It’s the time of year where things begin a new cycle, many cultures celebrate renewal, and colors emerge from under ground that surprise and delight you. A time to align with the cycle of nature and bloom!

Don’t Call Her Larry - I met Lawrence Lebo, one of the country’s greatest living blues singers according to LA Weekly, on Nextdoor, the new social media site that is just for neighbors (www.nextdoor.com). She responded to a post that the Reseda Neighborhood Council made about local restaurants featuring live music or art shows on the 25th of the month. She introduced herself via e-mail and we agreed to meet for coffee at the Starbucks in between both of our houses a block away (how often does that happen in LA?)
