Lynn Foulks Brewery Art Walk

Every year I go to the Brewery Arists Colony art walk. The absolute highlight for me for the last 9  years has been Llyn Foulkes, Church of Art.  He has created the most amazing one-man-band machine using old brass car horns and many other instrument including irreverence. While this may sound cheesy...we are not talking about anyone here we are talking about Llyn Folkes, a man of incredible intellect and gut.
His music is incredible and I ignorantly went on raving about it, not know that he is a greatly respected visual artist

The art grapevine told me at times he as been out of favor with the usual patrons and galleries for  not towing the line. His fellow artists respect and love him though (same grapevine) Well he is certainly wonderful and generous with his talent to  little fish like, and it is clear his interest is art and not the scene.  Oh I could go on, but next art walk go and see and meet him... you will be glad you did.

Love this Bauhaus meets Danish chair

I saw this great chair at the Brewery art walk. It belongs to a very talented Batik maker - but I wanted the not for sale chair. I am not sure what state the original wood was in but I loved his use of tomato orange and black. Chairs they really are my weakness.

modernist steel sculpture curtis Jere

This is  a sculpture I had a few years ago.  I wish I had more info on it.  I kinda wish I had kept it now that I am working on  a space in the Caltech astronomy building, I think it would have been fun. People have thrown out that they think it may be Curtis Jere. I don't think so. Any clues?
