Santa Fe Art Colony is pleased to announce our 28th annual Open Studio Event.

There are 57 artist units at the SFAC,and they house a multitude of artists working in many mediums. Once a year the entire community comes alive and opens their studios for an art walk.

The live/work spaces offer guests an opportunity to meet and converse with the artist about their work, history and goals. It is an unique experience to see an artist at work and all work is for sale directly from the artist.

Santa Fe Art Colony was founded in 1988 with a grant from the LA Community Redevelopment Agency, to provide affordable living space for L.A. artists. SFAC is considered one of the oldest artist community residences in Los Angeles.

Over the years many renowned artists have called SFAC their home and today features a wide range of practicing artists covering mediums from painting, sculpture, photography, film, graphic design, architecture and more.

Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
