About Fractured Landscapes:
The exhibition reveals work by two individual artists, Utah/Miami-based Cara Despain and Guadalajara-based Emanuel Tovar, that use similar methods to create formal and performative work that carry diverse meanings and themes. Despain and Tovar both approach a variety of actions such as fire, video, and photography using materials including rock, carbon, sand, and literature to articulate the fragile beauty of their natural environments.
About Cloning the Ghost:
The work of Javier Barrios at first appears seemingly decorative; flowers, landscapes, and beehives are made in intricate detail. But beyond the surface, they carry social and political undertones in their fictitious narratives. His drawings, sculptures, and installations are heavily research-based, incorporating geography, vegetation, and story-telling. His exhibition at the Center, Cloning the ghost, speaks to the relationships between human beings and nature, artist and work, as it stems from the artists’ three-year obsession with orchids.

About Creator's Crafternoon:
Take a break from these chaotic times to relax and craft your cares away with the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood. Announcing the Creator’s Crafternoon: an afternoon where we open the Arts School to creative folks looking to connect and craft. The Center’s Educators are on hand with basic tips, techniques, tools and materials to help inspire and excite your inner maker. Bring your own already-in-progress project or start something new! We will even give you some supplies to finish your creation at home, if needed.
We know that true creative freedom can only truly flourish when you feel safe so our Crafternoon is designed with your safety in mind. Crafter-capacity will be kept low. Face masks will be mandatory for anyone inside the Arts School or Center; however, tables and crafting spaces* will be placed at least 6 feet apart around the backyard where crafters can work safely without wearing a mask. Hand sanitizer and hand-washing stations available.
Whether you’re looking to make some handmade gifts, meet some like-minded makers, or just spend an afternoon creating in the fresh air, our Creator’s Crafternoon is the event for you.
