The Adams Hill Neighborhood Association is holding a reception to showcase Cat Chiu Phillips’ art exhibit “ReCollect” on Saturday, March 18, from 1:30-3 p.m. at the Adams Square Mini Park.
Phillips’ art, which is on display until March 31, evokes the vital relationship between sustainability, conservation and memory by repurposing film slides.
“ReCollect” was inspired by Phillips’ childhood wonderment and fascination with the play between light and color found in the paper lanterns, or “paroles,” in her native Manila.
“I’m passionate about making; it’s what drives me with everything,” Phillips said. “Creating, teaching, making, looking for materials — that for me is my passion. It’s the passion of creating art, and the passion of connecting people through my work.”
Those who wish to attend the reception can RSVP to AdamsHillEvents@gmail.com. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is limited.
The Adams Square Mini Park is located at 1020 E. Palmer Ave. It incorporates a historic Streamline Moderne gas station building that has been a community fixture since 1936. A designated historic landmark maintained by Glendale Community Services and Parks, the building has been adapted for reuse as an art exhibition space curated by the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission.
