The Art of Collaboration: The Cosmos of June Wayne

MY PIECE is up at Artbound on the artist June Wayne.

A snip:

Los Angeles wasn’t just a new address, it was a launching pad. Settling into life in Southern California, Wayne found herself particularly well-positioned within region’s orbit of sharp, cross-disciplinary thinkers — artists, writers, film directors and scientists. The convergence of time and place — and its influence on her imagination — can not be minimized. “She came to Los Angeles for work,” explains Betty Ann Brown, art historian and author of “Afternoons with June: Stories of June Wayne’s Art & Life.” “She did some technical illustration for the aeronautic industry” says Brown, “but we would see echoes of it in her much of her work throughout the rest of her career.”

The show is up at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and you can find the rest of the piece here.

    • Thanks so much, Ilene. This was one of those pieces where I was *really* sorry that I wasn’t able to meet the artist herself. I would have loved to be in her presence. Looking forward to seeing the show.
