Local painter, designer and multi-media artist, Abbie Rabinowitz. She works in expressive Pleinair Landscapes, Watercolors, Oils and Sensual Figurative Art.
Abbie came into the KZSC station on a cold and rainy night to talk about the upcoming exhibition opening at the Windmill Cafe of “For the Lingerie Ladies” An art and poetry and multimedia performance this Friday, December 17th 4pm-7pm at the Windmill Cafe, 21231 East Cliff Drive Santa Cruz, CA. For more information call 831.464.4698. Everyone is welcome.
This collaborative multi-media piece began as a when local poet JJ Webb, Aka Beau Blue, wanted to put images to his poetry to create a movie. Abbie and JJ met. She showed him her artwork. He loved her paintings and away they went. Abbie created new illustrations for JJ’s haiku poems that were then animated and set to original music. The video, created by Sun and Al Lundell, can be viewed on YouTube, for the Lingerie Ladies.
It was destiny for Abbie to become an artist beginning with her childhood and having working artist parents. She continued honing her craft and talent by earning a Bachelors of Fine Arts from SUNY College at Purchase. She works in a variety of mediums including oils, watercolor, gouache, acrylic, paper maché, and wood. She has participated in the CCSCC Open Studios Art Tour the last couple of years. We talked a bit about the Tannery Arts Community as well.
