The Local and Me

The Local Salon in North Hollywood ~ home to the first exhibit of my extra marbled large pieces (26" x 40"). In December, I had the distinct honor of being asked by the owner of The Local, an eco-friendly, organic hair salon in North Hollywood, if I would be willing to exhibit some of my artwork there. Rosie has been doing my hair ever since I moved to California (more than 10 years!) and when she opened The Local last year, she committed to having a rotating exhibit of local artists on her walls. She also participates in NoHo's LitFest, providing a space for writers to do their readings. For Rosie, her business is as much about being engaged and involved with the surrounding community members as it is about styling their hair.

Rosie's place has a modern, soft contemporary feel to it; exposed brick, steel and black-wood fixtures, high ceilings and exposed beams. I knew immediately that my floating frames made with wood backgrounds and steel hardware would be a perfect fit.

I also brought in several pieces from the marbled wood panels series I worked on this summer and hung them around the reception area.

But what I was most excited about was that she had large, white walls reaching forever into the sky in which I could FINALLY show off my "monster-tank" creations ~ marbled papers measuring 26" x 40".

Stop by The Local to check out my marbled artwork!

I am so honored that Rosie wanted to have my artwork in her salon. And I'm thrilled that I have a body of work that fits perfectly in the beautiful, inviting setting she's created. I hope you get a chance to stop by and check it out ~ and also get pampered by Rosie or one of the other great stylists at The Local.
