Los angeles // alma allen show at heath November 5th from 5-8pm -
the Alma Allen show at Heath LA. An exhibition of sculpture, salvaged wood furniture and hand turned wooden bowls, along with exclusive pieces from a collaboration between Alma Allen, Commune Design and Heath Ceramics. Alma works primarily with found and salvaged raw materials like wood and stone to create beautiful and often profound sculptures (which maintain a sense of humor) and furniture. Alma's show runs until January 4. All art work will be available for sale. Prices range from $200 upwards. Please RSVPto the opening reception here. We look forward to introducing you to Alma's amazing work...... Born in Heber City, Utah, Indian petroglyph drawings fascinated artist Alma Allen at an early age. Such ancestral influences infuse his work and inform his visual design language. Before settling in California in 2000, Alma lived in New York where his work was collected and exhibited by art & design luminaries. In Los Angeles Allen reunited with his childhood sweetheart Nancy Pearce, where together they opened “Pearce”, a store on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California and Alma’s work continued to be a favorite of important artists, architects and designers as well as a selection for major personal art collections. They later built their home and studio in the Joshua Tree desert, allowing Allen to work on larger scale projects, set up a bronze foundry, and be closer to many of the raw materials that he uses for his work. His pieces range from small enough to hold in the palm of your hand, to large enough to feed your family at. This will be Alma Allen’s first one-man show in Los Angeles in four years, and represents a rare opportunity to see a very large group of his work at one time, which will be updated with new works by the artist throughout the course of the show.
