This is a networking group for artists in Los Angeles. We have an artsy space in Hollywood (on Melrose), the Neon Venus Art Theatre, and we feature exhibitions from LA artists, in addition to featuring weekly acting showcases, Improv performances and stand-up.

Goals for the group:

1. To form groups to attend art shows, art events, etc.  (you can suggest a meetup)

2. We also want to work with teachers and develop courses for children and adults on painting, photography and mixed media.

3.To talk about galleries in Los Angeles, exhibits, history of art and to keep each other updated with what is going on in the world of art in general and in Los Angeles.

4. To network and help each other get exhibits and sell art.

5. To form painting groups of artists working on new work (with a moderator).

6. To do photography sessions outdoors with a group of artists (hikes, interesting locations, etc.

The organizer is a teacher/artist and has worked as a headshot and band photographer, has shot music videos for TV, has taken painting classes, and is owner of the venue.



I have not been able to suggest a meetup in a while because I'm involved in a couple of film projects that are taking a long time to finish.

That said, I would love it if members of this group suggest art meetups/events, so I have changed the settings in this page so that anyone in this group can create a meetup.  You just go to the group tools link to do so.

Do you know of an arts festival coming up that you thing we should all go to?  Or do you know of a networking event for artists?  Or of an upcoming museum exhibition?  Or an interesting art related talk with known speakers?   Whatever it is that you feel is interesting and happening around you, feel free to post, so that you can get a few artists to go with you.

I'm doing this so that there are more possibilities for meetups and for our community to get to know each other, and I'll try to go to as many as possible.

Thank you, and I hope that this is a fun thing for all of you to do every so often.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
