"Hard Mud - Soft Threads"
Ceramic artists manipulate their medium and fiber artists demonstrate the fluid potential of thread showing transformations into conceptual, abstract, functional, figurative and sculptural works of art.
The Loft is in downtown San Pedro at 401 South Mesa in a yellow stucco building, wedged between an auto repair shop and a ship supplier warehouse. Built in the early 1900s, the building once was Pacific Laundry, which washed all the clothes and linens for cargo ships calling at the port. For 50 years, it served as a warehouse for Harbor Ship Supply, a ship chandler.
Since July 1995, the building has been home to an eclectic group of artists who create paintings, sculptures, neon works, and assemblages in huge, airy, sunlit studios. Two galleries with polished floors and high ceilings showcase their work with new exhibits mounted bimonthly. Guest artists are invited to show their work, and community meetings, musical events and poetry readings are also held here.
