Presents ARID WEST BY CODY LUSBY
401 S. Mesa Street
We are grateful for the enthusiastic response to Arid West by Cody Lusby. Arid West is an evolution of Cody’s Water Wars series. His new works take a surrealistic approach on the importance of water and how here in Los Angeles, water conservation is a way of life. By combining black and white desert scenes with lush full colored bathers, Cody gives us a stark reminder of California’s divide between the wet north and the dry south. Arid West will be on view during the San Pedro First Thursday Art Walk, June 6 from 6 to 9 p.m.
SAN PEDRO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
390 West 7th Street, 6:30pm
The June 6th First Thursday ArtWalk tour will visit 3 galleries/studios and is a one hour introduction to the diverse art scene in San Pedro. Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) presents a Boardroom Gallery exhibition “Nothing New ~ Protracted” featuring multidisciplinary artist Lowell Nickel. Nickel’s new digital works will be showcased in the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce’s Boardroom Gallery, open to visitors during the First Thursday ArtWalk, from 6pm to 9pm.
This artistic investigation looks into the phenomenon of man-made flotsam i.e. beached discards as cultural artifacts. This approach can be subscribed by what has recently been labeled as the “Anthropocene”. The term Anthropo-cene or Holocene Epoch begins when human activities started to have a significant global impact on earth’s geology and ecosystems. The basic concept of this art project can be strengthened by a perceptible model of a geologically (human disposed) stratification. The weathering forces of nature will serve as the ultimate liberator of all man-made productions and these deposited layers might then be defined as our geological footprint… to be eroded away into just another strange strip in a hillside of a much, much larger landscape.

Join us for San Pedro’s First Thursdays!
The first Thursday of each month is open studio night in San Pedro – when many of the Downtown galleries, studios, and shops open their doors into the evening for receptions and special events, complemented by live music, food trucks and our fantastic array of restaurants.
You can leave your car here and ride the FREE red trolley to and around Downtown to make sure you see all the sites. The trolley runs approximately every 15 minutes from 4 to 10 p.m. You can pick up your car until 10 p.m. or the next day. Every First Thursday is a new and fun experience, so come down and join us!
