Tall Ships Discovery Art Exhibit
Los Angeles Maritime Institute, home to LA’s Official Tall Ships, the Exy Johnson and Irving Johnson, is curating an educational art exhibit in celebration of Tall Ships Festival LA 2014, from 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 21 and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 23, at fINdings Art Center in San Pedro.
Featuring “art inspired by Sailors, Shipwrights and Riggers,” the exhibit will tell the story of the building of the Twin Brigantines as witnessed by Scott Kennedy during the 3-year process. The exhibit will also include photography, knotwork, rigging tools and woodturnings created from the wood cut offs of the brigantines.
Construction of the Twin Brigantines began in December 2000 at the Brigantine Boatworks, a temporary boat yard set up adjacent to the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. They were built by hand using a combination of traditional and modern wooden ship building methods. Master Ship Builder Alan Rawl was in charge of construction, directing the efforts of hundreds of people, many of them volunteers, during the three year long project. Kennedy’s drawings were completed between the years 2000 and 2002.
Kennedy has built up his reputation as a maritime artist for the past 50 years. His love of ships and the sea, his attention to detail, makes him one of the most accomplished artists known today. A portion of proceeds from artwork sales will benefit the TopSail Youth Program, a hands-on learning program at sea offered free of charge to Title I middle schools and high schools, and youth groups located in low-income communities throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Venue: fINdings Art Center
Location: 470 W. 6th St., San Pedro

Aug. 23
Habit Forming: Makers of Matter
Check out the opening reception for Habit Forming: Makers of Matter, from 7 to 10 p.m. Aug. 23, at Cornelius Project.
The exhibit, which runs through Oct. 4, will feature all women artists: Phoebe Barnum, Ann Cleaves, Jen Foti, Cheryl Groff, Eileen Lopez, Freda Rente’ and Laurie Steelink. Gallery hours are on Saturdays from 1 to 6 PM or by appointment following the reception.
A cashier at a local market starts taking pictures of her clients as they are standing at the counter making their purchases. She posts the photos on social media. This activity becomes habit forming and blossoms into a body of work that documents the community surrounding the market. There’s more to just handing over your money and getting what you paid for. A conversation begins and continues and a friendship and a community develops. This is just one example of how one of the participants in this exhibition formed a habit. All the people in this exhibition are working out of habit with a spirited persistence. For some, it’s a daily activity, and for others it’s periodic. The results of their habits are offerings that educate, entertain and even envelope their recipients and community. Not everyone in this exhibition considers herself an artist, but their habitual practice has become a creative outlet. They are makers of matter that matters.

Art Deco Festival Turns 10
The Queen Mary, in association with the Art Deco Society of Los celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Art Deco Festival with a robust program of activities extended to five days, Aug. 29 through Sept. 1, at the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
Largely influenced by the architecture and design of its time, the Queen Mary is the world’s largest floating collection of Art Deco. The illustrious salons are replete with elegant woodcarvings, elaborate murals, priceless sculptures and lavish interiors, offering a matchless backdrop for a festival like no other.
The festivities begin with the Captain’s Strolling Art Deco Walk and continue through the weekend with an expertly curated program of lectures, parties, tours and tastings. Festivalgoers can don their best period loungewear at the Deco Derby and Pajama Jam, or sport their black-tie finest for the Grand Deco Ball.
An eclectic bazaar showcases vintage fashion, jewelry, collectibles and art as well as a vintage pop-up hair salon. A Gatsby Soiree will offer classic libations, entertainment and lawn games. New events include a tasting of prohibition era cocktails and the Bootlegger’s Bash featuring big band music, dancing girls and the best moonshine in the city.
The 10th celebration also honors the yearly tradition of the Queen Mary’s prestigious Starlight Club, a one-night revival of the notorious club dubbed “the most sought after reservation from South Hampton to New York.”
The Daily Lecture Series will cover topics spanning fashion, music, dancing, cultural practices and more. Prohibition’s impact on the soda fountain is explored in Farnsworth’s Art Deco & The Soda Fountain talk while Art Deco Shoes Lecture & Display delves into the birth of shoe design in the 20s and 30s. Society’s fascination and commitment to dance is presented in Dancing In The Jazz Age and two rival world fairs are studied in the lecture Last Art Deco World’s Fair.
Day Passes start at just $25 and an all-inclusive weekend Grand Passport is $399. Art Deco aficionados can stay onboard for the weekend’s duration with a variety of spectacular packages.
