Greg Aprahamian is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has since exhibited his art work in numerous one man and group exhibitions in New York, Chicago, the Des Moines Art Center and the San Diego Art Institute Museum of the Living Artist. Aprahamian has been working with wood as a sculptural medium for nearly 20 years. His current series of sculpture "Trees" are carved from their original substance, wood with leaves made from exquisite and surprising materials; glazed porcelain, mica and metals.

Tony Peters was awarded a scholarship to the Art Center College of Design. While a student he worked as an assistant at the Mendenhall Gallery in Pasadena. Since graduating in 2000, he has enjoyed a prolific career with over twenty gallery shows, private commissions and feature articles in Southwest Art magazine. Peters lives in San Diego and enjoys traveling around the US and Europe, photographing and painting along the way. He claims that his first love remains; "the winding metropolis of Los Angeles, where I am moved by the quiet beauty of a screaming city."

Valerie Mitchell received a MFA from The Rhode Island School of Design. Mitchell is known internationally, is regularly featured in books and articles and is included in many private and museum collections. Mitchell's "Landscape Pendant" series made from vitreous enamel on fine silver and the highly collectable "Fourth Street Bridge" series will be shown. The former is a series of brooches in various materials, 2 x 2 x .25 each displayed in hand poured 6" x 2" cement base with .5" glass top. Inspired by the tri leaf 'window' motif in the 1930's bridge structure, the series pays homage to the Los Angeles River, its history and current views of graffiti, railroad tracks and other bridges.

SPIRITED WOMAN ART WALK TOUR - Thur. Aug. 14, "Gallery Row Downtown Art Walk," 6-8pm (no-host drinks/dinner at Pete's Cafe post walk) By Nancy Mills

As you know the LA art scene is exploding. The hippest and best way to experience it is on the Second Thursday of the Month at the Gallery Row Art Walk. Nancy Mills, your spirited leader will lead the tour with a very talented well-known artist (surprise!) We'll mainly walk on Spring Street, where most of the galleries are, then head up to M.J. Higgins, a totally cool gallery on Main St. right behind the ultra-hip Pete's Cafe where we'll have a glass of wine. Then, for those who want to stay, we'll schmooze/eat (no host style) at Pete's. Locale: Meet in front of The Hive Gallery at 729 S. Spring St. LA 90014.
