San Diego Foundation : Creative Catalyst

A few months ago we reported on an individual artist grant offered by the San Diego Foundation. The Creative Catalyst Fund was created to fund up to 19 artists currently working in San Diego, focusing at the emerging level as a means to take selected artist's careers to a new level. We're thrilled to announce that longtime Sezio collaborators Wes Bruce and Joel P West have each been awarded a grant for 2012.

Each artist had to apply through an eligible non-profit within San Diego County. Wes Bruce will be sponsored by Lux Art Institute, and Joel will be working with Camarada, whose focus is to present classical and chamber music in new, engaging venues. Sound artist Margaret Noble was also selected and will be working with MCASD. The UT announced the full, 15 artist list yesterday.

We'll keep you posted throughout 2012 on their ambitious, year-long projects. For now, enjoy a previous collaboration between Joel and Wes.

Lux Art Institute : Emilio Perez

Brooklyn-based artist Emilio Perez has recently completed his residency work at Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. Perez spent an entire month layering latex and acrylic colors on a giant wood panel, and then digging back into the layers with an exacto blade. If you'd like to see this massive piece in person, you've got six more days to do so. Visit Lux Art Institute between 1-5pm on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of this week or next (December 22nd, 23rd, 24th or 29th, 30th, 31st). All photos by Stacy Keck.
