Armory Center for the Arts and One Colorado present Los Angeles-based artist Eve Fowler as the Artist-in-Residence for The Artist Studio at One Colorado. The residency starts on March 9, coinciding with Pasadena’s ArtNight, a city wide arts festival, and runs through June 10. The Artist Studio, located at 24 Smith Alley in Pasadena’s One Colorado complex, is an interactive artist space in which visitors are invited to engage with artists as they work. While in residence, Eve Fowler will maintain open studio hours on Saturdays 12p – 5p, Thursdays 12p – 6p, and Tuesdays 11a – 8p. Studio visits are free and open to the public. Armory and One Colorado are pleased to continue their over ten year collaboration presenting innovative programs that introduce the arts and artists into daily life.
Throughout her three-month residency, Fowler will focus on creating a new series of text-based works inspired from Gertrude Stein's radically experimental novel Tender Buttons. In conjunction with her residency, Fowler will install a reading room at the entrance of the studio where visitors are welcome to browse through a selection of works from her library as well as the libraries of friends, artists, writers, and librarians. Live readings by a selection of local writers will be scheduled throughout the residency. A schedule is available on the Armorywebsite www.armoryarts.org.
