Tony Luna Creative- Update- 6-30-2018

HERE ARE THE HEADLINES WHICH ARE FOLLOWED BY THE COMPLETE STORIES…

- Angel Mendoza showed his vibrant artwork based on Meso-american mythology at the AC Gallery in Hollywood on June 2. This is the beginning of more expositions by this truly original artist and we look forward to more opportunities for the public to appreciate his work. Well done Angel!…

- Brian Pescador allows us an opportunity to try to understand how photography saved him to reclaim his life after years of mental illness. He provides us with a link to a candid article he wrote on his struggles in the hopes of helping others who suffer from depression. This is a must read especially in light of the recent tragic deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and the challenges of everyday life in today’s complicated world. We are extremely grateful for Brian’s courage in sharing his story and encourage all to seek the help they need and to look to the value of art for a fresh look at the world.

- The next OPEN SHOW/Pasadena and East LA is to be presented at The Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, Thursday, July 12. The deadline for submission of photography artwork is Tuesday, July 3, and is open to all photographers on any topic. The purpose of the show is to “strengthen our photography community and bring together the public and artistic community in discussion of photography.” There is no theme and you are invited to show your best project. Good luck!…

- AC Gallery, Hollywood, California is “currently accepting artists working in all media for ART in LA for LA afFAIR 2018 - the inaugural boutique art fair presented by AC Gallery from Friday, August 17th to Sunday, August 19th, 2018.
ART in LA afFAIR will showcase independent, emerging artists presenting solo projects and works with an emphasis on contemporary fine art in all media including painting, sculpture, photography with edition prints and unique merchandise also available to the public. A maximum of 30 artists will be accepted on a rolling basis to exhibit during the art fain at AC Gallery LA.”…

- Andrea McCarthy, from AcademicKeys, has again generously shared a list of job opportunities in the arts at institutions of higher learning around the world. Listed in this blog is a small sample of the opportunities. More jobs are listed on the web site for Academic Keys, Inc. Take a look. Who knows, the right job may be listed there for you.  Thank you Andrea for making these notifications possible…

On the evening of June 2 the work of long time supporter of Crafting a Meaningful Career, artist Angel Mendoza, showed his work in a collaborative art event at the AC Gallery. It was great seeing the response of the attendees to his work which focuses on his blending of Meso-american mythology with influences from graffiti composed while using contemporary graphic technology. His vibrant work brings ancient Olmec, Maya, and Aztec narratives to light in a way that simultaneously delights and informs leaving the viewer wanting more from this truly unique artist.

(Editor’s note: I urge all to click on the link provided which will take you to the insightful and candid c-heads.com web site article written by Brian Pescador about how photography helped him get his life back after years of mental illness. Thank you Brian for generously allowing us to reposition the article in the hopes of helping others who are challenged and in need of hope.)

- Brian Pescador, Photographer-

“Hey Tony, I hope you are well. I just wanted to share this with you. I was interviewed this week by this fashion magazine and it just came out this morning. I am so proud of it and wanted to share it with you. If you could share on your blog that would be awesome. I hope what I wrote about could help others.

Thanks for your time & all the years of friendship and wisdom.

(And in a follow-up email…)

“Tony, …Thanks so much again Tony for reading my new interview. Please share it with anyone, who you think might be a little down. I really hope it could give other people a better idea as to what is going on now in the world.
From the time I finished this interview last week the world tragically lost Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain. So many people can’t understand why they did it. People are saying they were so successful and they had it all. I hope after reading what I wrote they might get a new perspective.
Thanks again and talk soon Tony
-Brian”
