Studio Artists

Studio Artist Slobodan Dimitrov was featured in  Port PHOTO Alumni Feature honoring his photography which documents cultural and occupational life. He says, “I have found that in the minutia of everyday life there are elements of the monumental which are readily accessible photographically, and more importantly, recognizable by a vast majority of the viewing public. One such undertaking is the Long Beach Blues Project. It is a visual narrative on how occupational culture is portrayed through music. As Long Beach became a military transit point during WWII, as a Navy town, the Blues, as a music genre, became one of its legacies. The images shown here, are from the Parking Lot Portrait series, one facet of the Blues Project, where musicians gather before, between, and after sets, and engage in dialogue with each other.”

More photos and the feature can be found on the Arts Council of Long Beach website

July 10 – September 11, 2021

Multiples presents works by Nathan Gulick, Colleen Hargaden, Seth Lower, Megan Mueller, Samuel Scharf, Noah Spindler, Katie Thoma, and Kayta Usvitsky, with a text by Hannah Sage Kay. Visit the virtual gallery on our website. 

This group of artists shares a strategy of building meaning from the multiple, from iterative or serial works, the use of standardized prefabricated materials, to the accumulation of images. These works challenge expectations of uniformity and predictability, in an effort to make citable organizational structures, units of construction in the built environment, and unseen material ubiquity.

This exhibition is presented through support from the Pasadena Art Alliance.

Welcome Summer Interns
We would like to thank L.A. County Department of Arts and Culture and the Getty Foundation for the wonderful interns we have this year. And we thank these interns for choosing to spend their summer with Angels Gate Cultural Center.
This year’s Getty Gallery Management Intern is Bea Correa, a multidisciplinary artist based in Whittier California, finishing their BA in Studio Art at California State Dominguez Hills. Their art centralizes the representation of body image and sexuality, whether they are female, male, or non-binary. They paint with acrylic paint on wooden panels, stretched canvases, and the illustration app, procreate. Their art practice is to create content that spreads awareness towards body positivity; it’s geared to represent the underrepresented and shine a light on people’s different perceptions of beauty. 
LACAC Development Intern Lourdes Gomez is a lifelong resident of the Harbor Area and a long time lover of Angels Gate Park. She’s a proud mother of two and is a patron of the arts, photography and music. Lourdes holds Associates degrees in Studio Art and Behavioral Science from LA Harbor College and is entering her senior year at Cal State Dominguez Hills. She will be graduating in June of 2022 with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services: Mental Health Recovery.
LACAC Arts Education Intern Amanda Parsons is an artist and student at Long Beach City College. Growing up in Vista, CA, she was fortunate to have a local gallery full of artists who encouraged her to pursue her passion for art. She enjoys painting in watercolor and oil, and is inspired by art history and fashion illustration. Finishing her A.A. in Studio Art this fall, she hopes to transfer to a Cal State University to pursue a BA in Arts Education.
