Music and art to unite in show
(PNAN-CALIF) – “Sound Art is the first in a series of brick-and-mortar exhibitions based on LarkGallery Online’s 2010 international competition, Colors of Life, which involved interactively matching art and music,” says Larisa Pilinsky. The show opens Thursday, March 3 at The Loft in San Pedro with an opening reception from 6:00-9:00 pm.
Participating visual artists include: Art Venti, Sandra Cooper, Felice Willat, Elena Beresnjak, Amy Galaudet, Kaleeka Bond, Jolanta Badyna-Budny, Michael Chearney, Pat Rayman, Georganne Heller, Ruth Dutoit, Dasha Guilliam, Lark, Juan Rosenfeldt, Elisse Pogofsky-Harris, Narine Isajanian, Vered Galor, Sallie-Anne Swift, Armineh Teimourian, Annemarie Rawlinson and Rachael McCampbell.
“The competing musicians and artists, including several artist-and-musician entrants, were fascinated by the resemblance and reflection between music and art. It’s why we decided to present Art inspired by Music and Music inspired by Art,” said Pilinisky.
The Live and recorded musicians include: Artie Q, Parviz Azad, Elena Beresnjak, Alan Derian, Devin Ga, Burton Goldstein, Kinsey Michal, Kevin Nolan, Nyee Moses, S.J. Pettersson, Norman Sachs, Katherine Semple, Andrew Swift, Susan Thampi, Julia Torgovitskaya, Pamela Stein, Jeannette Koekkoek, Rusty Wickell and Project ERANOS.

Located in the downtown of San Pedro, California, since 1995, The Loft has been the home to an eclectic group of artists who create paintings, sculptures, neon works and assemblages in huge, airy, sunlit studios. Two galleries with polished floors and high ceilings showcase their work with new exhibits mounted bimonthly. Guest artists are invited to show their work, and community meetings, musical events and poetry readings are also part of the programming.
Constructed in the early 1900s, the building’s history was once the Pacific Laundry, which washed all the clothes and linens for cargo ships calling at the port. For 50 years, it served as a warehouse for Harbor Ship Supply, a ship chandler. Today, its yellow stucco building is wedged between an auto repair shop and a ship supplier warehouse.
