Camping in Baja California, Mexico with Tanya Aguiñiga
Friday, May 22, 5:00pm
Zoom (register here)

Kick off this Memorial Day weekend with a cold beer and some fish tacos (in your own home) as we explore Baja California through the eyes of Los Angeles based artist/designer/craftsperson Tanya Aguiñiga. Tanya is the recipient of the 2020 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize.

Tanya Aguiñiga and her family have been camping in Baja California, Mexico, for the last 41 consecutive years, and it is Tanya’s absolute pleasure, passion, and honor to show people the beauty and history of Baja Norte and Sur. She will take us on a journey from Los Angeles all the way to Bahía Concepción (Baja Sur), stopping at her favorite places on both the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez. This virtual trip will include cave paintings and Alexander Gustave Eiffel’s stainless steel church in the desert called Iglesia de Santa Bárbara, as well as yurts in the middle of a Baja oasis. Also included is her emergency packing list must haves and preferred routes for scenic, cultural, or quick escapes. We’ll also virtually visit the Valle de Guadalupe wine region, for a peek at amazing up-cycled architecture.

Dear Friends,

I would like to make this appeal to you for your support during this great time of uncertainty. Our organization, like many others, was planning for a major fundraiser at the end of May.

Today, instead of gala tickets and tables and sponsorships, we’re inviting you, if you can, to make a donation in any amount to support the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize Gala Month. Join us in giving to artists! All of our fundraising efforts this month will go to our Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prizes.

Follow along as we share our #GiveToArtists campaign during our Art Prize Month of May.

Artist Biographies:

Tanya Aguiñiga is a Los Angeles based artist/designer/craftsperson who was raised in Tijuana, Mexico. She holds an MFA in furniture design from Rhode Island School of Design and a BA from San Diego State University. In her formative years she created various collaborative installations with the Border Arts Workshop, an artists’ group that engages the languages of activism and community-based public art. Her current work uses craft as a performative medium to generate dialogues about identity, culture and gender while creating community. This approach has helped Museums and non-profits in the United States and Mexico diversify their audiences by connecting marginalized communities through collaboration.

Recent museum exhibitions include Disrupting Craft: Renwick Invitational 2018 at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C. and Craft and Care at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York. Aguiñiga is a United States Artists Target Fellow in the field of Crafts and Traditional Arts, a NALAC and Creative Capital Grant Awardee. She is the inaugural fellow for Americans for the Arts Johnson Fellowship for Artists Transforming Communities. The award supported her creative work in communities throughout 2018 with AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides), an ongoing series of artist interventions and commuter collaborations that address bi-national transition and identity in the US/Mexico border regions, founded by Aguiniga in 2016. AMBOS seeks to create a greater sense of interconnectedness while simultaneously documenting the United States / Mexico border.

Current and upcoming solo projects include: Metabolizing the Border performance, Otay and Tijuana Border, US and Mexico; Borderlands Within, Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, California, and Transfronterizas, Fowler Museum at UCLA, Los Angeles, California. 

Aguiñiga has been the subject of numerous articles for American Craft Magazine. She has been featured in PBS’s Craft in America Series, as well as in episodes of the Emmy® award-winning arts and cultures series, Artbound, from KCET. Her work is included in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Decorative Arts collection and Contemporary Arts collection, as well as in the collection of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and The Mint Museum in Charlotte.

Dyani White Hawk (Sičáŋǧu Lakota) is a visual artist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

She served as Gallery Director and Curator for the All My Relations Gallery in Minneapolis from 2011-2015.

Recent support for White Hawk’s work has included 2019 United States Artists Fellowship in Visual Art, 2019 Eiteljorg Fellowship for Contemporary Art, 2019 Jerome Hill Artists Fellowship, 2019 Forecast for Public Art Mid-Career Development Grant, 2018 Nancy Graves Grant for Visual Artists, 2017 and 2015 Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Fellowships, 2014 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, and 2013/14 McKnight Visual Artist Fellowship.

Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize 2019: Kelly Akashi

Posted Posted in Art Prize, Foundation News

Announcing the 2019 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize

Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2019 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize is Los Angeles based artist Kelly Akashi. The prize consists of a $10,000 unrestricted cash grant, an artist residency in Ojai, and a solo exhibition at the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation. Previous prize recipients include Ry Rocklen (2018) and Rob Fischer (2017). The prize is awarded on an annual basis and the current focus is on supporting artists of merit living in Southern California with an interest in creating deeper engagement with the Ojai Valley community.

Akashi will be honored at the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize Gala on Saturday June 29, 2019 in Ojai, and the exhibition Kelly Akashi in Residence will be on view from June 29 – September 23, 2019. Click for more information about the Art Prize Gala and tables and tickets.

Akashi has exhibited nationally and internationally and was recently featured in the 2016 exhibition Made in LA Biennial at the Hammer Museum. Her most recent solo institutional exhibition Long Exposure at SculptureCenter in New York in 2017 was curated by Ruba Katrib. An excerpt from Katrib’s essay Kelly Akashi – In the middle: “Her works revel in micro interactions, spinning out through the various details and associations she can actualize within a tangible form. Akashi slows down and speeds up the processes of turning a material or an effect into a thing, creating a growing lexicon of inherent and internal material qualities.”

Frederick Janka, Executive Director, Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation, and curator of Kelly Akashi in Residence is currently working with the artist to develop her exhibition through multiple site visits to Ojai to meet creatives and makers that will inform the exhibition. Janka says: “Akashi’s works have a gravitational pull that focuses on her innovative use of material and interest in both exploring and exposing the artistic process. She is constantly challenging assumptions of use, while creating incredibly smart and awe inspiring artworks.”
