AAC at Avenue 50 Studio: New Member Exhibition

New Member Ubi Show

Thru April 2022

Experience the work of new members Dempsey Thomas, Claudio Ciampi and Justin Lutsky at the Blue Wall Alcove at Avenue 50 Studio.

Dempsey Thomas is a Los Angeles based multimedia artist with a BA in Film and Media studies from UC Irvine. While painting is her current obsession, she also practices photography and art direction. “Body Form” by Dempsey Thomas displayed at the Blue Wall Alcove is an exploration of masculinity through the use of light and color.

Claudio Ciampi

Artist and Interior Designer, Claudio Ciampi comes from generations of Italian artists and designers from Pisa, Italy. Claudio has brought his family-grown talent to commissioned fine art pieces, modern and contemporary interior design, hand painted murals, sculptures, outdoor and studio photography, and the original family trade: designing custom furniture pieces. Displayed at the Blue Wall Alcove are his series: “Americana”, “Diamonds” and “Renaissance Angels”.

Justin Lutsky is an accomplished filmmaker and experienced underwater photographer. He is passionate about storytelling and the business of entertainment. He has a diverse background in narrative, commercial, music video and branded content creation, having worked as a director, editor and producer of film and television. In his series “Mermaids”, he captures scenes collaborating with mermaid models from his underwater photography venture, “Submerge”.

As if this “New Member Art Show” were not enough, AAC members Brian Gionvanni and Marita De La Torre bring back their Gin and Salt Soiree cocktails and culinary delights. They will provide some “Sunday Funday” with their very own Salt and Gin! Brian is a gin enthusiast and infuser and he will mix tasty beverages while Marita will have delicious canapes from recipes using her very own Godmother Artisanal Salt.

Join us for unique gin concoctions, delicious food, beautiful, buyable art and lots of fun!
