LADDIE JOHN DILL
Laddie John Dill, a Los Angeles artist, had his first solo exhibition in New York City with Illeanna Sonnabend Gallery in 1971. He was one of the first Los Angeles artists to exhibit “light and space” work in New York. He exhibited the “Light Sentences” and “Light Plains” in institutions across the United States and globally, and has enjoyed a resurgence of interest in these pieces in the last decade as well, including a recent acquisition of a “Light Plains” sculpture by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It is currently on view in Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan. Dill has been crafting light and earthly materials like concrete, glass, sand, and metal into luminous sculptures, wall –pieces, and installations since the 1970s. Referring to his choice of materials, Dill explains: “I was influenced by [Robert] Rauschenberg, Keith Sonnier, Robert Smithson, Dennis Oppenheim, and Robert Irwin, who were working with earth materials, light, and space as an alternative to easel painting.” When Dill does use canvas, he paints with pigments derived from cement and natural oxides.
Born in Prague and raised in Israel, Ilana has absorbed the atmosphere and temperaments of many cultures. At the age of twelve, her family moved to Los Angeles. She later attended California State University Northridge, where she received her BFA and teaching credentials.
Ilana has over 25 years of experience as a teacher and professional artist. Her work is exhibited in galleries, cultural art centers, private and corporate collections, and she has been featured in the Los Angeles Times as well as other art publications.
Ilana's studio has been included on many art tours. Through her affiliation with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Rental and Sales Gallery, art consultants, and various art organizations, she is frequently asked to guest lecture and speak about her work. With a lifelong involvement in the world of art, Ilana shares her love of art through teaching others.
SUSIE McKAY KRIESER
Born in Los Angeles, California, her B.A. Degree is from the University of Washington. She studied graphic design, painting, and photography. Alex Katz, David Hockney, Milton Avery and Matisse influence her artwork. Krieser's art focuses on the human form with flat, bold, blocks of color, and interlocking shapes. She creates tension through the serene pose of her figures, being offset by her vibrant blocks of color, and her use of light and dark. Her work hangs in collections in the USA, Mexico, England, France, and at the American Embassy in Lisbon, Portugal. There is a permanent exhibit of 4 of her works of art at the Broad Stage in Los Angeles, CA.
She has been Published in the Italian Art Magazines, BIANCOSCURO and EFFETTO ARTE.
LUNCH ROSE CAFE - VENICE, CA
Rose Cafe is an iconic restaurant in the heart of Venice, serving locals and travelers alike since 1979.
Now, 38 years later, chef Jason Neroni (formerly of Superba) has kept the roots of the Rose that the community knows and loves, while introducing his seasonal, globally influenced cuisine.
Chef Jason Neroni’s menu focuses on local Southern California cuisine with an international influence from his world travels. The bakery celebrates American classics, as well as some of the original Rose bakery classics re-conceptualized with their innovative techniques.
The sprawling space, designed by local company, Studio UNLTD, includes indoor and outdoor dining with a beer garden, a full market and bakery, Verve Coffee bar, and 40-foot cocktail bar. The design aesthetic took nods from the evolution of the Venice community over the past 30 years with artwork playing a major role. The Rose partnered with local Venice artist Craig Stecyk to cover one of its walls with a combination of bright 14-by-22-inch posters and historic imagery from the neighborhood.

THE BROAD MUSEUM
The Broad is a contemporary art museum on Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. The museum is named for philanthropist Eli Broad, who financed the $140 million building which houses the Broad art collections.
The Remba family has been involved in the printing business for three generations. Moving from Mexico City to Los Angeles, Mixografia’s three-dimensional printing technique has been improved and perfected over the course of over 40 years. Because of the medium’s versatility, Shaye and Luis Remba are always searching for new techniques to expand the printmaking possibilities for the artists.
