Current and Upcoming Exhibitions (and what's in it for you...)

I have been a busy bee recently and have a few events that you may be interested in, especially if you are in San Diego, CA.

If you are not in the San Diego area, you can join me on the journey through my blog posts (although those always come later than the event).

I would love you to come and experience these, but I know you are all busy.

So, rather than just tooting my own horn about the awesomeness of me to get you to come to these events, I am going to tell you what's in it for you!

These events are in chronological order.

Current/Upcoming events:

Exhibition: A World of Art - San Diego Women's Caucus for Art Member Show

Dates/Times: May 1 - May 15, 2010, call to arrange for viewing times

Location: East Village Company, # 29
906 10th Ave, San Diego (corner of 10th & E-downtown)

More Information: See the Facebook event

What's in it for you:

  • See the diversity of work from the San Diego Women's Caucus for Art members.
  • Also to my encaustic covered hand-carved Jelutong wood sculpture "Reliquary" and untitled encaustic painting.
  • Check out the East Village Company's space, hosted by the elegant and gracious, Coco Cabuquit-Jarboe. Coco opens her artist loft home to host art events. The relaxed ambiance makes viewing the art and meeting the artists a rewarding and intimate experience. One of San Diego's best kept secrets.

Exhibition: Repeat. Sum. Repeat. Art installation by Jaime Lyerly and sound installation by Experimental Musician Chris Miner

May 11, 2010, from 12 pm to 3 pm.

Location: San Diego State University, Art Building Installation Room Art 418C (on the fourth floor.) If you are not a student, park in the "W" lot, which you can buy an hourly permit. Call me at 619-750-2404 to get directions from there.

More Information: My first attempt at installing my body of work, including most of my current encaustic paintings and sculpture, and my newest fiber related works. See the Facebook Event.

What's in it for you:

  • Supporting local and emerging artists!
  • Check out my body of work, and help me figure out what needs tweaking as I get ready to apply for graduate school.
  • Experience Chris Miner's sound installation which is based on the patterns and songs of whales. This is the initial stage of this sound collage, and will be expanded for inclusion in the Atomino 2010: Experimental Art Festival in Germany in August 2010.
  • FREE ADMISSION (obviously - and I will entertain you too!)

What's in it for you:

Exhibition: San Diego State University Art Council 8th Annual Scholarship Exhibition

May 22 - June 19, 2010 Opening: May 21, 2010, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

La Jolla Athenaeum Music and Arts Library

More Information:
The Athenaeum presents for the eighth consecutive year an exhibition of artwork by scholarship winners of the San Diego State University's Department of Art, Design, and Art History. Students from the upper division of the undergraduate or the graduate programs will be selected, based on scholarship applications, by the SDSU Art Council. Each of the five receives a monetary award and the opportunity to present their artwork in this exhibition.

What's in it for you:

  • Support local and emerging artists (see a trend here?)
  • Meet the five of SDSU's undergraduate and graduate artists who, including myself, have been awarded a scholarship based on an essay and portfolio review. I will get the names of the other four artists soon.
  • Check out the Artist Book Collection.
  • Three in One! See the other two exhibitions running and opening at the same time in different galleries at the Athenaeum, Including: Selections from the Athenaeum's Erika and Fred Torri Artists' Books Collection: Fischli/Weiss and Ellen Salk: Shaker Loops
Whew! Lots to do in the next few weeks, right?

Even though I would rather avoid these art openings, (yep, that is me - the introvert in me wants to stay home and watch movies instead) , I will be attending all these events.

I would love for you to join me! ~ Jaime Lyerly

    i will make every effort to join you at the May 15th & 21st openings. i love art show openings; the free food & colourful people enhance the art viewing!
    i will also be stopping by tomorrow to see the final version of repeat. sum. repeat. i'm amused that the way i summed up my impressions of the sound element for Chris was "The whales are jamming with the aborigines & the Tibetan monks!" before i had any idea that the piece was conceived with whale songs in mind...


Have something to say? You rock! I am all ears....
