Always in pursuit of uniting and elevating the New Contemporary Art community, Thinkspace Projects teams up with Tialoc Studios and the California Cowboys Collective to present ‘RAIZ’, an all day blowout event to mark the opening of the two month art show at The Brand Library and Arts Center in Glendale, California.
With 60 artists in the group show alone, the extravaganza is sure to be diverse and varied, bringing universal appeal from so many incredible contributors. With a focus on local Los Angeles based artists, the lineup is as impressive as it is varied, including new work from the likes of Antonio J. Ainscough, Young-Ji Cha, Kristy Moreno, Zeye Oner, Perez Bros, and Aof Smith just to name a few. Solo shows from Anthony Clarkson, Ken Flewellyn, Matthew Grabelsky, Anthony Hurd, and Cody Jimenez round out the gallery exhibits, filling the walls with innovative and genre-blending pieces across mediums. It’s not just the walls inside the Arts Center, but the walls inside the hallways of the Brand as well that are being transformed for this event, with site-specific murals from Brek, Love Yo Dreams, and Mr. B Baby adorning the entry hallway area and outdoor courtyard.
The surrounding grounds themselves will also be bursting with compelling content, from the food provided by Zavalas Pies, Sweet Life LA, and Bad Jimmy’s to the car and bike clubs in the parking lot with Cabrones Car Club, Ghetto Car Club, and Bikes On The Blvd. That’s not all that is happening for the opening event, so be sure to keep an eye out for local artisans painting live around the grounds alongside video projections, a cash bar and live DJs providing entertainment all day and into the evening hours. Save the date and we will see you soon!
The show opens January 21st with a reception from 4PM to 10PM. They will remain on view until March 17th at The Brand Library and Arts Center in Glendale, California.
Cody Jimenez ‘Efferverence’
In Cody Jimenez’s Efferverence’, he explores a world where emotions are embodied in physical forms. The emotions are represented through vibrant colors and shapes that affect their environment and characters around them. By using physical representations of those emotions, he investigates the dualities of beauty and danger that mirror mysterious forces he experiences in his life.
Cody Jimenez is a Mexican-American artist whose work focuses on the natural world through a lens of Imaginative Realism. He received his BFA in painting from NMSU in 2014 and MFA in painting from LCAD in 2017. His work has been exhibited throughout the country, including Los Angeles, CA, Denver, CO, Baton Rouge, LA, and Santa Fe, NM.
