An Evening with Kirk McKoy
Senior Photographer at the Los Angeles Times
When: Monday, September 27th at 7:00 pm

Where: Lyceum Theatre Gallery, in Horton Plaza, Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego.

Cost: Free
Veteran photojournalist Kirk McKoy will speak and show high-resolution images at the Lyceum Theatre Gallery, presenting three decades of his photography as he covered many significant events which have shaped our history. Come see the world through the perspective of a major photojournalist. From California wildfires, the L.A. Riots, the Northridge earthquake and the World Trade Center, to celebrity portraits and fashion.

Three of McKoy's images are represented in the Art of Photography Show 2010, having been selected from nearly 14,000 entries by Natasha Egan, the Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. His three images in the exhibition are:

The Chase - A rioter attacked cars of any one who was not African-American with chunks of broke concrete at the intersection of Florence and Normandie in Los Angeles after the King verdict 4/29/1992.

The Beatdown - The mob at the intersection of Florence and Normandie attacked this Latino man as he stepped off the city bus. Anyone at the intersection who was not black was attacked during the first few hours.

The Quick Escape - A looter jumps on the door frame to make a quick exit after robbing a store on the second d day of the Los Angeles Riots following the Rodney King verdict.

Two hours after the verdict in the Rodney King beating trial was read, mayhem ensued! At the intersections of Florence and Normandie, anyone entering the area that was not African-American was attacked during those first few hours. The police were powerless to stop the violence. Mob rule was in full effect. These images were recorded during the first few hours and days following the not-guilty verdicts against the police officers trial for beating Rodney King were read.

Kirk McKoy is a Senior Photographer at the Los Angeles Times. Mr. McKoy has been a photojournalist for 30 years and has a BA in Graphic Design and Photography from the University of Maryland. Kirk shares the Pulitzer Prize for his work covering the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, the 1994 North Ridge Earth Quake and the 2003 Los Angeles Wild Fires stories. McKoy is a contributing photographer for the book "Songs of My People" and has also been published in numerous books pertaining to the 1992 Riots.

Directions to the Lyceum Theatre Gallery: 

Parking: Park at the Horton Plaza parking structure and receive a 3 hour validation.

Gallery StatementEvery year for 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its "Open Call" exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an international experiment of the same nature where the artists upload images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works are displayed in a grid like installation (reminiscent of postcard art shows of the 1980's) where every work submitted is exhibited.
The usual (less than democratic) selection process where only the precious few are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy where everyone gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be the judge. The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art history when digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age where culture belongs to the "mobblogers" around the globe. From Thailand to Texas, amateur to academic, beautiful to banal and beyond the monumental quantity and variety of "Snap to Grid" becomes an aesthetic experience where each individual piece adds to an agglomerative effect that has a life of its own.

Pyx - SEGIN (2009)

In Gold and Bronze: The Triumphs of Akelo

Admired for his splendid creations in gold created using ancient goldworking techniques, Andrea Cagnetti, who works under the artistic name of Akelo, is in the news again. Two important American Museums—The Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) of Boston and the Museum of Art and Archaeology of the University of Missouri—have acquired two works for their permanent collections.

Andrea Cagnetti is known for his use of a personal, cryptic language that relates to the mysteries of the universe hidden within the arcane symbols of alchemy. The first piece regards a round pyx called SEGIN (2009) made of 22 kt. gold (900/1000). The body, lid, and knob are finely decorated with plant and animal forms and geometric motifs, which are realized in filigree, granulation and dust granulation. Embodied within this ornamentation are the three realms of nature (mineral, vegetal and animal) and the four primary elements of water, earth, air and fire. Embedded in the crowning knob is a sapphire, synonymous with spiritual elevation.

The second work, entitled YILDUN (2001), is a precious pendant in the form of a bulla (Italian for “bubble”). First used by the Etruscans as an element in jewelry, Roman nobility continued the use of the bulla as a protective amulet. Radiating around the shield-like form appear geometric and plantlike forms outlined in filigree, several of which are then filled with the tiny delicate spheres of granulation. Filigree also decorates the jewel’s suspension tube.

Ever more in demand in the world of art, the artist’s work is the subject of the Museum of Art and Archaeology’s exhibition The Voyage of a Contemporary Italian Goldsmith in the Classical World: Golden Treasures by Akelo (June 5 – September 26, 2010), which will be traveling to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in Carlsbad, California (October 7, 2010 – March 11, 2011).

With amazing versatility, Andrea Cagnetti moves with ease from the bench of the goldsmith to the foundry and to the chisel, thus completely embodying the ideal of the Renaissance man projected into the new millennium. During the 67th edition of the Venice Film Festival, one of the artist’s bronze sculptures, entitled “Hope”, was awarded to Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, a film director from Chad and winner of the Robert Bresson Prize.

New Exhibit at BrassWorks on Grove Gallery
Features Artists' Take on Manmade Structures
20% of sale proceeds to be donated to Children's Hospital of NJ.

The latest exhibition at Brassworks on Grove - New Jersey's off beat, alternative art space in a beautifully renovated loft building - features paintings inspired by industry.

Allan Gorman of Montclair, NJ will show his bold, colorful and dramatic paintings of trucks and industrial landscapes. These tight graphic works will offer counter balance to Jersey City artist Lynda D'Amico's lyrical and romantic cityscapes mostly based on scenes from the Jersey City and Brooklyn, NY waterfronts.

Gorman, who has been painting with a fury over the past three years, demonstrates the strong graphic sensibilities of a designer. His simplified, angular, semi-abstract canvases and prints show a kinship with the photo realists, but betray his love of abstraction and the touch of the painter's hand. Gorman himself admits he is nostalgic. His canvases transport viewers back to a simpler, quieter time and that is exactly what he's after. "There's something very comforting and safe there, and I like to make images - even if they're modern - that have the ability to transport me to somewhere familiar," he admits.

Gorman, primarily self-taught, began painting in the early 1980's while teaching ad concepts at The School of Visual Arts in NYC, and then took a hiatus of 20 years. Since his return to painting, his work has been seen in more than 15 nationally juried exhibits, including the NJ Arts Annual at the NJ State Museum in Trenton. He's also the winner of several ArtSlant Showcases, and is presently the featured artist for August on

Lynda D'Amico, a Jersey City resident, delights viewers with her muted, Latin American inspired palette and technique. She says her approach to art has been largely influenced by studying with a noted South American artist who inspired her passion for painting.

Although the scenes she paints capture reality, D'Amico says her work is actually guided by the principles of abstraction--to simplify in order to expose the subject's essence.

D'Amico states: "I have always been attracted to the warm tones and strong simple forms of the old industrial buildings that make up the area where I have lived for the past 30 years.  On the surface, there is part of me that is interested in capturing the poetic beauty of these historic neighborhoods in the midst of their transformation. Beneath that, whether the inspiration comes from cityscapes or objects that make up a still life, my desire is that the finished painting is not merely a depiction of the real thing."  Her work often captures a more mysterious and almost spiritual quality that is both delightful and transformational.  D'Amico is the recipient of several fellowships and residencies, and her work has been purchased by many public, corporate and private collections. 

The artist's give back.
20% of sale proceeds to be donated to Children's Hospital of NJ.

BrassWorks on Grove is a unique, alternative space located in the NYC suburb of Montclair, NJ.  Curator, Hillary Jaffe Reimnitz coordinates 3-4 two-person exhibits a year in a beautiful contemporary space very well suited to displaying art.  "We're not running a traditional commercial gallery," says Jaffe Reimnitz, "but our standards are high nevertheless.  We show only the best local artists, and Gorman and D'Amico suit our space perfectly."

"Since we don't have the same burdens that a commercially-run space does, we're able to come up with some creative business ideas too," she goes on.  "And since the economy has had such an impact on nonprofit institutions that help the less fortunate in our communites, we've all agreed to donate 20% of the proceeds from the sales to help the fundraising efforts of Children's Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. It's a win-win for everyone, and we're all excited and expect a large turn-out at the opening."

Children's Hospital of New Jersey is the state's premier hospital dedicated to caring for children. Due to unprecedented numbers of hospital closings in Essex, Hudson, Union, and Passaic counties, Children's Hospital has become the health care anchor for poor, uninsured children in northern New Jersey. Only about 10% of Children's Hospital's patients are privately insured. With Medicaid reimbursements in New Jersey close to the lowest in the country, Children's Hospital must rely on additional outside funding if it is to continue to serve this most vulnerable population.

An artist's reception is scheduled for October 15, 2010, from 6-9P,
where there will also be a presentation by the lead pediatrician from the Children's Hospital.
All are welcome.

Stan Lee is known world-wide as the man who propelled Marvel Comics to its preeminent position in the comic book industry. His co-creations include Spider- Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, The Avengers, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange. Stan Lee has had more influence within the comic book industry than anyone before or since. He either created or assisted in the creation of over 90% of Marvel's recognized characters, which have been successfully licensed and marketed since 1965. The numbers are staggering -- more than 2 billion of his comic books have been published in 75 countries and in 25 languages. In Europe alone, Lee's name appears on over 35 million comics annually. Each year, X-Men sells more than 13 million copies. The syndicated comic strip Spider-Man now appears in more than 500 newspapers worldwide -- making it the longest running of all Super Hero strips.

In 1939, at the age of seventeen, Stanley Martin Lieber joined the staff of Timely Publications-the original publisher of Marvel Comics-as a copywriter and proof-reader. His first story was published in Captain America in 1941 under the byline of Stan Lee, and later that year he was appointed editor. As editor and chief writer, Lee collaborated with Marvel artists to create some of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe, including the Fantastic Four (1961), the Hulk (1962) and Spider-Man (1962). He was promoted to the position of publisher in 1972 and through the end of the 20th century, continued to increase the success of the Marvel Universe by expanding into the film and television industries.

Lee's career at Marvel has spanned six decades, and he is presently the chairman emeritus of Marvel Enterprises, Inc., a member of the Editorial Board of Marvel Comics, and executive producer for their motion picture productions. In 2002, he formed his own company, POW! Entertainment , where he continues to create and license intellectual property for the entertainment industry.

Lee's admirers are not limited to the younger generation -- his avowed fans include Presidents (Ronald Reagan once said he started every day reading Spider-Man comics and George Bush praised Lee for encouraging and assisting "millions of young people to broaden their own imaginations") and media titans (Steven Spielberg once explained that "Stan and I do the same thing. Only my pictures move.") and even his competitors ("Most of my generation of writers learned our craft from or through Stan Lee. He's an incredible part of the business," said Paul Levitz, publisher of DC Comics).

"He revived Batman, saved the X-Men, challenged the system and changed comics forever." - Wizard Magazine 
"Describe him in one word? Genius." - Joe Quesada, Editor in Chief, Marvel Comics

"He's a pivotal figure in the world of comics. He has positively altered the state, the ethical structure of the industry, and always for the better." - Harlan Ellison

"Adams transformed Batman into the sleek, brooding Dark Knight depicted onscreen for the past two decades." - Brian Lowry, Variety

"Who is the greatest living comic book artist? As I've said before, my vote is for Neal Adams"- Geoff Boucher, LA Times

Neal's had legendary 'runs' on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern-Green Arrow and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from his campy TV show, and transformed him into his present "Avenger of the Night." When people say 'modern Batman,' they mean Neal Adams' Batman. His run directly led to the realistic incarnation seen in Batman Returns, and the Dark Knight movies.

He godfathered a generation of new talent, brought down the comics code by introducing "relevant comics" and gave America its first black comic book superhero. 
While fighting for creator's rights, he convinced publishers to return original art to its creators, improved standards of comic book production, forced publishers to pay royalties...and crusaded against work-made-for-hire in the copyright law. In addition, Neal has launched a successful production company - Continuity Studios - which produced the popular Nasonex Bee Campaign and introduced us to the concept of Motion Comics. He designed the popular Terminator, T2 4-D ride, and the Spider-man Rides at Universal Studios.

While setting-up his own characters with various Hollywood Studios and Producers, Neal is currently writing and drawing Batman Odyssey, for DC, a 12 issue series, and writing and drawing a 5 issue series of Wolverine for Marvel.
