Ione Citrin at the opening of her solo show at the Arc Light Theater in Pasadena, CA.

dear art afficianados
This picture was taken on the day my solo show opened at the Arc Light Theatre in Pasadena, CA. There are many more paintings on exhibit, but I thought you would be interested in these as a sampling. The show extends through the end of September when it moves to the Arc Light Theatre in El Segundo, CA. Then in the spring of 2012 I will exhibit more works at the Arc Light Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

These two particular paintings required the skill of an experienced carpenter, because wood is the main support. I merely gave the measurements and drew a pattern for the carpenter to follow, and after much angst, they were produced for me to continue my artful ideas.

"River of Gold" has a depression zig zagging down the middle and is filled with bronze jewel-like artifacts, whereas the other painting, "Sun Already Set" is a diptych contemplating a sunset over a lagoon. This diptych is one of a series of six pieces, all concerning sunsets of various happenstances and can be found on my website, in the abstract gallery.

There are many more paintings on exhibit at the Arc Light Pasadena Theatre, however, here is a listing of some other art shows where my paintings and/or sculptures are on display which might be in an area closer to where you reside.

artist statement
I create art because I must.
It is a necessary extension of my life.
It identifies and substantiates my existence.
It is my profile and my legacy.
I want to intrigue and entertain.
I want to initiate wonder and questions.
I want to communicate my thoughts, dreams and desires.
Most of all, I want to be
