Lucy Chamberlain & Andrea LaHue
May 6-26, 2017
Having known each other for over 20 years, artists Lucy Chamberlain and Andrea LaHue have long looked forward to a combined exhibition. The celebration of nature is at the core of inspiration for both Chamberlain, a glass artist and LaHue, a painter. Illustrious flowers, natural forms, light and movement come to mind. What might be found and fed by a river, on its way to becoming the sea, are explored and illuminated in this exhibition. Both artists tapped into a familiar channel of natural wonder and have masterfully expressing themselves in their respective mediums.

Titia has always felt a natural instinct while working with clay. Her education at Orange Coast College, as well as Glendale Community College, helped her focused her efforts on learning every aspect of clay and glazes. She desired to understand the relationship of clay to architecture, as well as simple shapes in nature while understanding the textures as they related to the surface of her pieces. She’s an instructor at the Xiem Clay Center & Gallery located in Pasadena, CA where she teaches beginning and advanced hand building. Though she uses the wheel to throw certain elements of her work, predominantly, she employs pinch, coil, and slab techniques. Opening Reception is Friday, July 7, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.

These artists found a common desire to show us their world through the eyes of feminine beauty, passion, vulnerability, justice and women's rights. They share a similar cultural background and a collective desire to showcase their distinct journeys through art.
Our lens for art making and exploration is that of an Armenian American female. We believe that it is important to include our positions as, both, insiders and outsiders, not just artists and academicians, but as Easterners and Westerners, traditionalists and modernists, and foreigners and locals, which gives us a broader sphere to a more critical and reflexive approach. Our art is a study to the extent of our “self” and a descriptive feature of our cultural experience.

Photography is primarily a social medium and has the power to enlighten, educate, and bring about a new awareness. Valena first picked up a camera in 1970 to document her son’s growth, soon thereafter she discovered the power of taking photographs and how it made her feel alive. Her interest has been primarily in the human condition and she’s driven by her concern for people in their struggle for justice and dignity. Through photography she has been greatly touch by the degree to which people will open up, often across language barriers, and share themselves through a lens.
Opening Reception is Friday, September 8, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.
