L.A. culture icon, Bernard Stanley Hoyes is opening the doors of his private art studio and announcing an art rummage sale on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, 2011 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 p.m. Considering the fact that Oprah Winfrey, Natalie Cole, Steve Harvey, Keenan Ivory Wayans and the National Urban League are among his collectors, this is a sale not to be missed.
Selections of Hoyes’ work have been featured in several television shows including the Showtime hit series, “Dexter” and President Barack Obama has even been photographed in front of his work. An internationally celebrated craftsman, Hoyes’ work is know for its African American and Jamaican influences, brilliance in color and depth of spirituality. Hoyes’s work is included amongst the artists featured in the coffee table pictorial, “L.A. Rising: SoCal Artists Before 1980″ by Lyn Kienholz and also “Immaculate Immigrant: The Virgin of Guadalupe in Los Angeles: Reflections and Meditations” by Meg Garduño. His masterful work is also included in the 2011 African American Heritage Month Calendar and Cultural Guide for the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
Hoyes’ gallery is located at 985 Westchester Place in Los Angeles, (one block west of Wilton Place off of Olympic Blvd). Originals from his collection, as well as watercolors, serigraphs, etchings, limited editions, and poster, framed and unframed will all be available and in many instances, you will be able to make a deal directly with the Hoyes.
“Every few years, I begin to notice the art clutter in the studio. This rummage sale is a great opportunity to secure some beautiful pieces at bargain prices. Its also a house clearing for me so that I can make space to continue to create and expand into new dimensions,” adds Hoyes.
