Art lovers of any background will be mesmerized by this show-and-tell presentation by globally renowned artist Andrew Myers. He will will share stories from his experimental student days at Laguna College of Art and Design, to his years as a representational sculptor, when he created figurative bronzes for Saint Catherine of Sienna Church, and “The Shopper” for City of Laguna Beach. Myers will share insights on his series of life size figure drawings, defaced with scribblings of social commentary, satire, and humor. Lastly, he will discuss his signature Screw Art series, which although a pun, describes his collection of wall relief illustrations literally composed of thousands of screws. Among them are narrative pieces, portraits, and geometric sculptures that magically transform from an “X” to and “O” when viewed from different positions. As a special treat for LOCA, Myers will present materials from his studio including his overworked paint brushes that compose certain sculptures, and he will demonstrate his screwing techniques.
While Myers has had his share of road-bumps, such as having a public sculpture in Dallas take a bullet, he’s been embraced by blue-chip clients including Audi, who commissioned him to use automotive screws for a piece presented at a car show in Frankfurt Germany.
Upon conclusion, everyone will receive a post-event certificate for 15%-off food at nearby Lumberyard Restaurant.
