Our music for the 818 show will be provided by the ever talented singer / songwriter Katie Chappell. I stole Katie for the night from her band Claire’s Daze. You can hear their music on “my space” so you must check them out. I met up with Katie on Tuesday night to show her the around and get to know her. She’s a strikingly beautiful girl with a melodic voice…with good reason… She’s a voice coach.

Katie said “When I was little I noticed that people would listen to me when I sang. It feels nice to be heard sometimes”. I can’t wait until you hear her sing and play her guitar.

Katie’s influences: “People I meet and places I visit”.

Carroll Thomas and 818

Posted in Art, art show, artists, future, gallery, Uncategorized on February 22, 2009 by anuvuestudio

“818 will showcase a selection of work by 4 Los Angeles Artists, while in addition, paying a united tribute to Mr. Carroll Thomas. Mr. Thomas is the oldest living American Painter, still creating works of art, while personally operating and maintaining his own gallery located in Big Pine, California.

They have selected a photographic portrait, from my 2007 archives, giving the viewer a glimpse into the world of Mr. Thomas. It shows him holding one of his original watercolors that I purchased, inside his working studio, behind the gallery. These 4 Artists pay homage to this living legend, preceding his 99th Birthday. which will be celebrated April 29th of this year.

Laura Dancing

Posted in Art, Bewitched, creative, dance, Exotic on February 10, 2009 by anuvuestudio

Laura Arellano is not only one of the talented Artists in our Community Gallery but she is an exceptional dancer and my dear friend. She told me she and her beautiful dancing partner were going to have a show Sunday night…so I showed up with camera in hand. The dances were erotic, the costumes exotic… and the combination…visually stunning. When the two women began their own version of the veil dance… the clouds of floating silk combined with the haunting music made a lasting memory in my mind. I promptly asked Laura to teach me this dance… 😉
