Coming to the Santa Monica neighborhood on November 7th, 2015 is the new show ‘Live Free’ at Daniel Rolnik Gallery, a collaboration with and curated by Mike Maxwell of the LIVE FREE PODCAST – a largely popular podcast featuring interviews with contemporary artists each and every week. There’s a slew of talented artists for this upcoming show, which include: Anthony Lister, Ben Horton, Marcelo Macedo, and Kyle Ranson (see full list below!).
Maxwell, a visual artist based out of San Diego, started his podcast 5 years ago and has gone on to become one of the highest ranking podcasts that centers around the art world. He, alongside several of the artists that he’s featured on his podcast, will be displaying his work at the gallery as well.
Rolnik, an art writer and critic – otherwise known as “the world’s most adorable art critic” – says his gallery specializes in “upbeat, humorous, and colorful art at low price points so that anyone can collect it.” He is an avid listener of podcasts and audiobooks, particularly on long drives, and claims that “it’s a unique and organic way of finding talent across this vast land!”
His gallery, started in September 2014 and located in Santa Monica, California, is surprisingly one of the few independent businesses in the area, as well as a strong advocate for local talents in the community. In keeping with drawing the community together, according to the website – “the first Sunday of the month [they] host Record Club from 2pm – 6pm, where you are encouraged to bring your vinyl records to play on [their] turntable while everyone in attendance gathers around the gallery to paint, draw, and tell stories.” Record Club is completely free, open to the public, and definitely something I would love to check out the next time I’m in the Santa Monica area!
