Pocket Utopia's Neighborhood
I come home from being at Pocket Utopia and I have drawing on my mind. One practice influences the other. Sunday at the gallery was neighborhood day, which ended with a studio visit to Andrew Hurst, who lives and works across the street.
I've met more neighbors, in addition to Andrew, from the day-care operator on the corner to Yvette, who's lived in the hood for over 25 years, and her 13-year old daughter Victoria who brought in her sketchbook. It's a process, or as the next artist exhibiting at Pocket Utopia, Lucas Reiner, refers to it as a work in progress. Pocket Utopia and ATfreespace are ever-changing and evolving.
