Javier Benitez

Benitez Studio
916 E. Altadena Drive
Altadena, 91001

On November 11th, 2020, I underwent a profound transformative experience commonly described as ego dissolution. Leaving behind this previous self, I embraced the opportunity to embark on a fresh journey of self-discovery. As I rekindled my artistic passion, I began to witness an evolution in my creative style and process. My earlier artistic expressions had been characterized by spontaneous bursts of creativity, without premeditation, and often completed in a single session. In contrast, the dissolution of my ego paved the way for a more contemplative and geometric abstract expressionism. Now, each painting unfolds with deliberate intent, placing an emphasis on design and structure, allowing me to dwell in a more harmonious realm, infused with a deeper spiritual perspective.

My artwork is focused on the tiny things in the natural world that we are systematically taught to ignore as we grow up. I hope that my artwork helps people to disconnect from artificial, man-made reality, reconnect to their humanity and reconnect to that special, magical world that we left behind. It is still there, waiting for us, if we slow down and look very closely. I live in the Foothills of the unincorporated area of Altadena/Pasadena, and I draw my inspiration from the many nature centers and neighborhood flora and fauna that surround me.

Laura Dixon

At P Carroll Art Studio
1355 Atchison St.
Pasadena,CA

The process of creating something new, is what excites and challenges me the most. I love to try and work with many different mediums, but one of my main loves has always been drawing… for itself or as a starting point for some other medium. Some of my best ideas come from idle doodling. They might develop into a more complex drawing, and then of course comes the wonderful part of colors. They cab be from inks, watercolors, pastels etc.. I was commissioned to illustrate a book on Chinese Horoscope that was published a few years ago. I have participated in a couple of previous Open Studios, that I find to be most rewarding experiences, I very much look forward to participating in this year’s Alta Art Tour 2024

Altadena 91001

I love working with raku firing since I have so many options for modifying and manipulating the result from first centering the clay on my wheel to final removal from the reduction vessel. Yet, with the piece within my grasp from start to finish, the kiln gods still have a major influence on the final result. A close second is working with high fire porcelain. The glazes are so rich and pure on top of the pristine white clay. I get most of my ideas from nature, making a ceramic snapshot of the world around me.

Karen_Holgerson_Dawn-V2

Karen M Holgerson

Karen Holgerson Studio
1510 New York Drive,
Altadena 91001

I’ve always been an artist! However, since artists rarely earn enough money to support themselves, I eventually decided to pursue a college teaching career. I earned a B.A. in English and history (but with far more credits in art). After teaching English at Milwaukee School of Engineering and Milwaukee Area Technical College, I earned an M.A in linguistics at the University of Minnesota and spent a year at the university of Salamanca training teachers of English. It was there that I began to learn Spanish and had the challenging experience of living in a foreign country. I returned to the U.S. and landed a variety of teaching jobs in Los Angeles, finally winning a position at Pasadena City College, where I spent more than 40 years teaching English and linguistics. During that time a earned a M.S in International Studies and a PhD in International Relations. I had a wonderful teaching career and loved working with students. Following retirement, I was lost for a while. I gradually began to create art. At first, it was ceramics, then acrylics, and finally mixed water media and watercolor. Finally, I began to do paper collages for fun and gradually began to use fabrics to create “paintings.” It was a transitional process. Fabric collage is now basically what I do although I have recently returned to oil painting as well. I’m finally living the life of an artist!

Brian Mark

Brian Mark Studio
2706 Visscher Pl,

Like humanity, all stones are unique and tell their own story: each has its own color and its own hidden beauty. Each stone has its own language and I strive to understand that language. These conversations continue until nature’s stone and my imagination marry and together say, “Stop – our work is done.” I do not strive to make statements with my art, but rather bring beauty into the world, and at the same time soothe my soul by fulfilling the creative process.

Robin McCarthy

 

Whether we isolate from or embrace the natural world, we are a part of it. My past sculptural work combined industrial and natural materials to explore this dichotomy. Integrating those elements led me to arts and crafts inspired woodworking, various illustration/ graphic design projects and most recently printmaking focused on the animal world. My work has been shown at Occidental College and former group studio spaces in Glendale, CA. In life, as in art, bridging two disparate disciplines, I have both a BA degree in studio art and an MBA degree.

Kathleen Swaydan

 

Craft artwork tells the story of tradition by beautifying objects of utility and adornment. Passed from teacher to student, craft-work carries its history in the objects and their makers. Having been formally trained in Jewelry and Metal Arts, I have the responsibility to keep my craft alive. This need for making is the fuel that continues to feed the relationship I have with the tools and materials that speak to me as we play together. Humor, cultural tradition, the body, and sexuality are themes that you will find in my work.

I received a BFA in Jewelry/Metal Arts from California College of the Arts and a MFA in Metal from State University of New York at New Paltz. In addition to metalwork, I make custom piñatas for anyone who wants their party to be a hit.

Julie Taber

At Flower Cottage Pottery
216 W. Terrace St., Altadena 91001

I am a ceramic artist living in Altadena. I work out of a small studio in my back yard. In the 80’s I attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, majoring in painting. I began working in ceramics approximately 15 years ago. I love the outdoors, gardening, and hiking, and I find my inspiration in nature. I hand build, throw, and alter whimsical and functional pottery pieces inspired by the plants in my yard and those that I see while on walks and hiking. I am constantly in awe of the abundance of texture in nature. My process is somewhat improvisational and stream of consciousness. I do sketch out ideas, but I use the sketches as a leaping point and a form of reference to start the shape of the form.
