10 Artists You Should Know From The Brewery Artwalk

Picture of Amanda Hoskinson
Updated: 11 December 2015
Art walks are as common as farmer’s markets in this sunny city of Los Angeles, but the Brewery Artwalk is a wholly unique phenomenon. For one, the public visits artists’ personal residences for a distinct behind-the-scenes experience. Viewers have the opportunity to see new work in the environment of their creation — you may even get a glimpse of the artist’s original inspiration, like a photograph that inspired a painting or their current read.

If you’re new to the Brewery or you need a little refresher, a good place to start is the I-5 Gallery. I-5 features pieces from many of the artists, so you can get a quick idea of what you’ll see nearby. Also, if you have any questions about the artists, the event, or the history of the Brewery, volunteers are available for questions.

The art at the Brewery goes far beyond traditional paintings; there is cutting edge design and sculpture, too. For example, Michelle Jane Lee’s sculptural Hung Up, Still series plays with revealing and hiding strips of color.
