Atwater Artwalk 2015!

Participatory Art was SO FUN (again) this year! My petit team of volunteers were stationed both outside of Revo Cafe and Kaldi Cafe, helping young and old paint, chalk, and go wild with rubbing alcohol squirted on markered paper plates. Yeah. And next year, stay tuned for a shallow pan of tempera paint for neighborhood pups to paw through!

+++++++NOV 17th EVENT POSTPONED++++++++

If you were jumping up and down with excitement for Sunday, NOV 17th, don't stop jumping, but you'll have to jump a little longer because PM 4 has been POSTPONED due to venue and support staff complications!

But rest assured that the complications are no match for the creative problem-solving skills of the artists, musicians, and staff involved!

Please check back for future event information, or email CatMooreArt@Gmail.Com to join the mailing list.

Until next time, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! from Team Petit Montmartre!

Petit Montmartre 3 REVIEW

Thanks to the Artists, Musicians, Volunteers, & Guests for bringing their amazing talents to the Revo Cafe courtyard on Sunday, September 22nd, to re-create the artist corner of Paris! We had our best turn-out yet, and incorporated new elements of literary arts, mentoring, and spontaneous kiddo dancing!

Find below some moments from the day captured through the lens of master photographer, Jim Kuo, at Half Stop More Photography. Special thanks also to Andy Silk of Tell Visual Stories for the sound system and Brett Jaxel of Silverlake Community Church for the set-up. And, once again, thanks to Rewind Audio for the table loans, and thanks to The Atwater Village Branch Library for the books and brushes!

The astounding Jackie Hadnot, local large-scale wood carver, who specializes in pieces related to Rail Road History. See him display and work live at Travel Town on Octobe 20th from 10-5!

Petit "Petit Montmartre" has a shaded area where kids & parents could relax with artsy picture books;
 a cute booth to display craft projects from which families could choose projects to make together;
and, of course, multiple surfaces, mediums, and supplies with which to experiment!
Animal Saints Painter, Clare Hebert, creating live, explaining to guests her process
(a dying gold-leaf on wood technique learned from a monk).
Whimsical Artist, Illustrator, Sculptor, & Painter, Rolandas Dabrukas,
playing around with his guest around his hand-painted mailboxes.
Mixed Media Artist, Cindy Rico, discusses her pieces with neighborhood Painter, Julie.
Jess Lane, local caricaturist (who specializes in pet portraits),
sets up shop in a cool corner of the courtyard.
Abstract Artist, MarHak, mentoring a Petit Picasso.
Collaborative, Portable easel designed by Cat Moore Art & Kanesworks.
The multi-talented MarHak pulling double-duty as a musician in two separate acts...
not to mention his painting demoing and mentoring. Amazing.
Spontaneous ground painting.
These two little girls became instant friends, becoming dance partners
once their masterpiece was complete!
Whimsical Artist, Rolandas Dabrukas, explaining his process and technique to a
local student @ The Art Center.
Photographer, Laura Casner, shares her work with neighboring Artist, Rolandas Dabrukas & his wife, a local childrens theater director.

To the Artists, Musicians, Investors & Guests of Petit Montmartre 2, Merci Beaucoup!

Thank you to Israel and Harut, co-owners of Revo Cafe, who demonstrate a generosity towards the community equalled by their genius for the arts.
Acrylic Abstract worked on live by Angel Sawle, who cheerily incorporated the smear into the history of her piece. Someone literally stepped on it...spreading the colors along the sidewalk as he left!

Aux Amis, the Gypsy Jazz Trio, closes down PM 2 with a colorful backdrop painted earlier in the day by PM kiddos.

Alt-rock duo, Lost Anyway, performs a stripped-down set following the acoustic string group, Clover Quartet.

Community Painting nestled in the courtyard foliage with paint cups taped to the trunks.
When I found this painting of a woman sketched on a white canvas at a garage sale, I saw the potential, took it home, painted the background, and added the Event text...collaborating with an unaware local artist. This wonderful lady behind her wandered through the event off and on, smiling, and informing me about the names of local flowers.
The Amazing Mr. Ethan Gold!
Thank you water bottle tags to keep our musicians and artists hydrated in the heat. My little boy "helped" with these the night before by loading them into his little red wagon to push to the car.

The lovely, local Rewind Audio team who leant their PA system to Petit Montmartre musicians for the day as well as running home to bring little kid tables to the event!


The fantastic Megan Betley, a recent NJ transplant, out in LA following her music dream.

Making flowers out of colored coffee filters and pipe cleaners, are the sweet and talented kids of PM Artist, Clare Hebert!

Photographer, Laura Casner, selling gorgeous prints snapped during road trips and local explorations.

Art Critic & Appraiser (as well as Revo co-owner) making art history...

PM Acrylics Artist, Jackie Hile, brings some beautiful friends who beautify the courtyard for us in the crazy heat.

Caricature artist & illustrator, Jess Lane, sets up in the shade.  Jess also specializes in pet portraiture!

Soul Sista!

Stunning, unique animal icons by Clare Hebert. She learned this process of etching in wood and applying gold leaf from a monk who preserves the method's tradition.

Art, art, everywhere is art art.

Acoustic set by Brady Cocoran, who stayed so chill throughout the sound system drama! 

The insanely talented, Nina Storey, rocks it out.

Professional bluegrass string quartet, The Modal Tease, play completely unplugged, but only 75% shaded. Brilliant musicians!

And much much more........ Stay tuned for Petit Montmartre 3 on Sunday, September 22nd! Pre-register to CatMooreArt@Gmail.Com!
