Marc Arranaga Leaves LA


Time: 6 - 11 PM — Event Listing: "CHIAROSCURO SPACES"

"On August 18, I begin the next chapter in my life. The time has come to continue my education as I pursue a Ph.D. in art history at City University of New York (CUNY). This is a huge step for me and I am excited at the opportunity life has given me to fulfill my dreams. Over the years I have come to appreciate New York and all that the city offers culturally, artistically, and academically.

"In lieu of a going away party, I am asking friends to come to the opening of Chiaroscuro Space, the new exhibition of Doug Cox¹s work opening Friday, August 5. Please visit www.marc-jasper.com/exhibits.htm for more information.

"Hope to see you there!

"Much love,

"Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues,

"After nearly three decades in Los Angeles, I'm leaving California. My partner, Stanton, and I are relocating to St. Louis, Missouri. I will continue making art (and hopefully a little controversy!) and Stan has accepted a position at St. Louis University.

"Come say so long at a very informal, "drop in" gathering at Hal's Bar in Venice. We'll be there between 7:00 and 10:00 pm on Tuesday, August 2, 2005.

"Hal's is located at 1349 Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice.
