Antelope Valley artist AJ Currado has been working up a storm lately, winning awards and doing commissioned projects. This weekend she is set to open her studio doors to share a view of some of her latest work and maybe offer some insights into her process.
An editor at the AV Arts project magazine, SATURATION, Currado has recently been looking at the printed word in a new light with a series of literary mixed-media pieces. Mixed-media work of this type is a new direction for Currado, who formerly has shown acrylic paintings with an eye for botany – and a touch of gold leaf.
But that was then and this is now and with her literary series Currado is tapping a new vein of ideas and exploring a new, specific style. Her theme is clear and her pallet for these pieces seems to present a carefully selected range.
If you want to see more and find out more, AJ Currado’s open studio will give you an opportunity to do both. The OUTPOST pop-up art show happening later in the day will make a nice contrast to an open studio visit. One experience will be a focused examination of one artist’s themed project and the other will be a panoply of arts and artists from around the Antelope Valley.
The event will take place on Saturday. May 9th (a day jam-packed with art events in the Antelope Valley).
