Eve Zeisel Los Angeles Exhibit Reminder

September 8th, 2007

Just a little reminder that the Eva Zeisel exhibit at the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum is starting September 9 and running through the end of the year. There is more on Eva Zeisel and the Los Angeles exhibit here in my previous post.

We just returned from the opening and this exhibition is set up differently from the San Diego show. In San Diego the work was grouped thematically, but here Zeisel’s work is laid out chronologically. This made for a great tour led by Pat Moore, my step-mom and the founder of the Eva Zeisel Forum. I had heard all the stories before but never all at once, in order and with examples laid out so beautifully. While I’ve long appreciated the work, Zeisel’s biography really hit home tonight. Highlights of the tour include hearing her history including traditional apprenticeship in Hungary, imprisonment by Stalin and a conscious move against the coldness of Bauhaus and modernism. Gonna have to break out some of her books (listed here). Anyways, check it out before the end of the year. (and the circus exhibit, also now showing, is great fun!)

    Very nice post..i’m gonna start a blog to talk about my trips to south america and andean art. I took my ipod too just to keep me motivated (hey I as at one point at almost 16,000ft and needed some good music to keep taking steps). http://www.perurooms.com planned out our peru tours and also gave me a good list of what to take and what isn’t necessary on the trek. I got to see some beautiful Andean scenery and arrived at Machu Picchu on day 4 or 5 of the trek.
