All skill levels welcome
Saturday, September 28, 1 pm-3 pm
Penda Diakité will present a workshop on her unique collage process. Diakité’s mixed media collage is comprised of spray paint, acrylic and paper.

It showed at the Substrate gallery in Los Angeles, where she is based. Penda’s professional pursuits include art, film, and running her art inspired fashion line PendaWear. She grew up between Mali, West Africa and Portland, Oregon. She earned a BFA in Film/Video and a minor in Cultural Studies from the California Institute of the Arts.

Show Us Your Angels!

We seek your INTERPRETATION of angels in your choice of medium and style. You are not limited to the traditional or religious styles commonly seen this time of year. The amazing variety of angels in various mediums, styles and techniques in past shows has drawn many favorable comments from attendees and patrons. We prefer new angels, but gladly invite prior years’ artists and their angels to return.

We have some pedestals to accommodate freestanding 3D angels, but you should be prepared to bring your own. For 2D art, there is a limit of 2 pieces with a maximum dimension of 48 inches each.

Submissions are not technically juried, but we do review and prioritize them in the event we run out of space. If this occurs, new angels will have priority over repeat entries. Painting a new angel for this year’s show? Reply to this email to notify us as soon as possible! Please include the approximate dimensions of your piece(s).

Please fill out the application form here>>. Right click, then save the image and print. Submit with images of your angel art to gallery director Anne Brooke at[email protected]. Anne will be happy to answer any questions not addressed on the form.
