Diego, a four-day contemporary art fair that takes place through- out the city and kicked off September, which is Art Month San Diego.

One of the exhibits on view at “Cubed,” “Emana- tions: Paintings and Works on Paper” will remain on display in the studio’s gallery through Oct. 15.

“Emanations” is a body of

work by Marie Thibeault, a Los Angeles artist, which is based on urban dissolution caused by disas- ters such as Hurricane Katrina. Thibeault’s work is done in

layers. Photograph images are transferred in ink to a sheer paper similar to tracing paper. She then sketches on top of and around the image. Guests can view her early sketches in an adjacent gallery. The finished products are gaze

arresting abstract paintings with bright colors. Resident painter Tanya Young, who was responsible for bringing Thibeault’s work to the gallery, says Thibeault is an excel- lent colorist who teaches courses on

with a subdued black and white collage of two trees with bare branches near Taos, New Mexico that seem to herald the start of spring. In one piece, a quilt of lotus blossoms appears in hushed grays and neutral colors, while in another a coyote pokes its head out of a Sierra meadow, its long grasses a sea of earth tones that provide perfect cover for the animal. Out in the desert a riot of

purples and blues alternate with close-ups of the trunk serving as the perfect bor- der on a striking piece, while several agave works seems to convey decorative belts and buckles, especially the Agave Study in Blue & Green. It is on loan to the San Diego Museum of Art.

Another large construc-

tion of ear th, sea and sky is goGreen Hollywood, cen- tered with the iconic Hol- lywood sign. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Librar y in Simi Valley acquired it for its permanent collection, a tribute to his movie star past. Steve Noll has produced

this grand opening with the aim of exposing Uptown residents to a completely new ar t form along with a chance to learn about the benefits of Pilates classes and a special of fshoot called Gyrotonics, a fitness method that em- phasized circular patterns to increase range of motion and strengthen ligaments.They want the public to enjoy this art and fitness alliance on Oct. 1 from 7-11 p.m., where a large crowd is expected to enjoy plenty of food, drink and music by DJ Jerrod Sto- vern.

21 Nickel says the way to

expand San Diego’s art scene further is to expose people to art and get them interested. The studio attracted some obvi- ous interest, as 1,200 people were present at the showing of “Cubed.” The artists at Space 4 Art

are producing other work than the kind that can go up on the wall, said Nickel. She referred to the space as a hub or an arts incubator for emerging artists, allowing them the chance to explore other types of media such as video and performance art. With so many different

artists working there, Nickel said, “there are a variety of artists here with com- mercial, representational, abstract and conceptual interests.” She added much of the art focuses on broad philosophical ideas. Space 4 Art also offers art

classes at the studio to students of all ages and skill levels. For more information about Space 4 Art or to learn about upcoming events, visit
