Culver City ArtWalk 2017 Comes to the District on October 7th!

October 7, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

As we transition from summer to autumn, the art scene around town also shifts seasons with new gallery openings, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and over in our little bit of the city, CULVER CITY ARTWALK – a self-guided walking tour and celebration of all things creative in our community.

On Saturday, October 7th from 2 to 6pm, we are pleased to welcome artists and makers who will activate the Helms Bakery campus and engage our community in a creative dialogue. Begin your tour at Helms Avenue heading east along Washington Boulevard for an arts and entertainment adventure. A full calendar of events includes music, art installations, performances, gallery openings, dance, a doggie parade and much more! Check out the Culver City Arts District website and Facebook page for complete details.

Here are the not-to-miss happenings at Helms Bakery, inside the Helms Design Center and along Helms Walk, our pedestrian plaza on Helms Avenue.


ART GALLERY INSTALLATION: 2 to 6 pm
PLACE

New Works by Renée Amitai, Kim Abeles, Rachel X Hobreigh, and Debra Dobkin
PLACE refers simultaneously to a location and the action for going there. In this way, we can remember the places of our past, and imagine others in a sense of longing. The four artists in the exhibition make use of painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, and sculpture to define the ethereal dream that is PLACE. Click here for more information.

Helms Design Center 8745 Washington Boulevard, Culver City


INSTALLATION + PERFORMANCE: 2 to 6 pm
STRANDS, featuring artists Amabelle Aguiluz, Joy Wu and Si Jie Loo

Strands draws from three artists’ unique mediums and perspective to demonstrate a common contemplation of the past and future, traditions and modernity, eastern and western art practices, and the struggle to juggle multiple identities such as women and artists (to name just two) ALL at once within one given time and space.

In addition to the open gallery, we will host two 15-minute performances at 3 pm and 4 pm. The performance piece is a visualization and reenactment of how  ‘strands’ is perceived by three female Asian artists. These artists use traditional tools to give voice to contemporary issues, using lines from textile, brush strokes and instruments to connect us, bind us, and hopefully de-tangle all the knots of illusions that are detracting us from the ‘truth’. Click here for more information.

TEXTILE ARTS LA POPUP COLLECTIVE: 2 TO 6 PM

We are excited to partner with Textile Arts LA to bring you a one-day-only popup collective of artists and makers whose work explores texture, form, sculpture, materials and purpose.

Helms Avenue between Venice and Washington Boulevards.


ARCANA BOOK LAUNCH AND EXHIBITION: 4 TO 6 PM
Senon Williams: Hunted & Gathered

Native to Los Angeles, Senon Williams is a lifelong visual artist and musician. Williams’ work finds space in the natural, exposing outstanding and devastating stages of human evolution. “To provoke thought, a question works better than answers.  I enjoy to start a story I resolve in different ways depending on my mood,” says Williams.  With imagery ranging from stark silhouettes to lush landscapes and human forms staged in undetermined acts of hope, his pairing of words and imagery suggest deeper meaning. A poignant visualization of the inherent human struggle both ancient and contemporary. Click here for more information.
