"A Beautiful Distance: Work by Edem Elesh to be Featured"
2008-04-17 until 2008-04-27
L.A. Artcore Brewery Annex Gallery
Los Angeles, CA, USA United States of America

"A Beautiful Distance" Show at L.A. Artcore Brewery Annex in Los Angeles, CA will run from April 17 to April 27, 2008. This is an installation show featuring Edem Elesh's 5 X 7", and 7 X 10" Oil Pastels on archival canvas card. Artcore Brewery Annex is Northeast of Downtown in the Brewery Artist Complex, next to the 5 Frwy and just South of Main. Elesh comments, "I am intrigued by the interplay born of this duality: order and chaos, old and new, the conscious and unconscious, structure and freedom. Not to mention expectation and accident." Edem Elesh has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2003.

Edem Elesh continues, "I am interested in examining the miracle of everyday existence. I have lead a very unique life. Born in Los Angeles and educated from an early age at English boarding schools, I have been exposed to two different cultures. This gives my work an American energy with English sensibilities... I am currently working with a new form of mixed media which allows, to an even greater extent, the chances of an interplay between process and providence."

LA ARTCORE was founded in 1979 by Lydia Takeshita, who was a Professor of Art at California State University, Los Angeles. Ms. Takeshita found that her graduate students wanted a continuing contact with art professionals, and a group of graduate students met informally at Brookside Park for critique of their works, and for discussions on relevant issues. After a couple of years of meeting outdoors, the group wanted an exhibition space in which to display their work. CSULA allow them to use their 501(c)3, and a gallery was opened in old town Pasadena on Raymond Street. When the works began to sell, the accountants at CSULA advise the establishment of a separate, non-profit gallery.Since its inception, LA Artcore, its artists, and contributing members have worked to provide exhibition spaces and a continuing dialogue between artists of diverse cultural backgrounds, as well as with the art viewing public. At present, Artcore maintains two exhibition spaces, the Union Center for the Arts and the Brewery Annex, where new and original art works are displayed each month. Artcore also sponsors several exchange shows which bring artists from around the globe to Southern California, and provides local artists with opportunities to have their works seen abroad.
