Artist, actress, and digital explorer Ann Magnuson has an art show opening up tomorrow night in the remote California desert town of Joshua Tree. The exhibition is titled "30 x 30," at Art Queen gallery, and chronicles Magnuson's adventures in creating 30 art works in 30 days. From the gallery owner's official blurb:
Ann Magnuson is an actress ("Making Mr. Right", "Clear and Present Danger", "Panic Room", series regular on the ABC-TV sitcom "Anything but Love"), writer, performance artist, former singer/lyricist for the psycho-psychedelic band Bongwater and a part-time resident of Joshua Tree. "I've been visiting JT regularly since the eighties" Ann told us. "My husband and I finally got a place out here 5 years ago and I love it." She loved our '30 in 30' exercise. "Making art is more fun than acting!" she told us. "The anything-goes approach gave me a sense of liberation I haven't felt since I was a kid. It's really helped me look at the creative process anew."
Although Ann had always enjoyed making craft projects or fake Jean Michel Basquiat paintings (which are fantastic!) she had never applied her talents to putting together a whole show of her artworks. Ann used materials from local thrift stores as well as organic and inorganic 'found objects' from her rustic desert environment in Joshua Tree. Please join us this Saturday, April 11, 7-10 pm for the opening party with live entertainment by the Plaids, Shari Elf, and maybe even Ann Magnuson!
