Last Days of Summer Art Expo

August 30, 2010

Well lookie-here: We’ve partnered up with the fabulous Tony Zinnanti to bring you a real, bonafide art show.

Featuring art/photography from our friends Tony, Alma JuarezAaron Bjork and quite a few more innovative, non-horse-drawing artists, we’re pretty excited to say that this show won’t be like many of the other shows that the City and the County have supported here in Santa Clarita. 36 artists. Over 120 works.

The art will be installed at William S. Hart Hall from Saturday the 4th through Monday the 6th, 10am-6pm – and it’s free.

We (really, truly, honestly, seriously) hope to see you there.

PRESS RELEASE – 2010 Last Days of Summer Art Expo, Labor Day Weekend


This Labor Day weekend, the 2010 Last Days of Summer Art Expo will be hosted at William S. Hart Hall at the historic William S. Hart Ranch in Newhall, California. The show will be open September 4th through 6th, each day 10:00am to 6:00pm.

The 2010 Last Days of Summer Art Expo is a mixed media show featuring the best in regional photography, painting, lithography and three dimensional art. The featured artwork includes the nationally renowned collodion wet plate work of Will Dunniway and the traditional and alternative photographic work of the staff of Freestyle Photo of Hollywood, California.

Dunniway will present several of his works featuring that Crow Agency Native American of Little Big Horn executed in period collodion wet plate photography (Civil War era). These awaited works have never before been on display. Dunniway, as a teacher and artist, is a major force in the preservation of American Civil War era photographic methodology.

The work of the Freestyle Photo staff includes stunning metallic prints, lithography and chromoskedasic printing, as well as works in traditional gelatin silver. Freestyle Photo is the nation’s hub for the preservation of film photography and the advancement of new and refined alternative photographic and printing methods.

Additionally, the suburban art rebellion of show co-producers, Proxart Magazine, will be on display. This highly talented group of young people will soon celebrate the release of their third edition of Proxart Magazine. Proxart and its artists are gaining serious “art-traction” as was recently featured in extended coverage by the Los Angeles Daily News.

Other featured talents include photographer and writer, David Green; the award winning photography of Rick Russell; photographer and CalArts graduate, Christopher Velasco; the portrait photography of Keri Kilgo; and, the traditional photography of show co-producer, Tony Zinnanti. The best of the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association and Chatsworth Fine Arts Council will also be presenting. A total of 36 artists will present over 120 works.

Admission and parking are free. William S. Hart Park features sprawling grounds, a souvenir kiosk and plenty of activities for children.

William S. Hart Hall and Park is off the 14 Freeway north, via the San Fernando Road/Newhall Avenue exit. Head northwest on San Fernando Road/Newhall Avenue for approximately two miles to the park entrance.

This production was made possible by the generous support of the City of Santa Clarita Arts & Events Office and the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.

    My God?!? You’ve dared to get involved with that Machiavellian tyrant Zinnanti? I guess since he hasn’t sucked up to local media, they officially refuse to say anything about the show – which officially makes this a cult event for Proxart’s cult following! What will we do without the horsey drawings? Something isn’t right in suburbia.

    Yup. You’re absolutely right, Lucho. A cult event for our cult following. *Waves white flag.* You got us!
