Juror of Selection and Awards – Jon Measures
English artist Jon Measures’ fascination with cities and in particular Los Angeles where Measures has made his home for the past 26 years, has developed into a long-running, ongoing body of work. Measures is best known for his mixed media paintings that generally use the urban environment as the subject. The images are often fragmented, taking a cue from the cubist idea of representing different viewpoints simultaneously. Having transitioned from a successful career in design, Measures’ work is now housed in collections around the world.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm;
Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm; Sunday – Monday Closed

CAA Scholarship Award
To maintain ties to the community and to promote the study of collage, Collage Artists supports an annual scholarship for a deserving art student.
2015 Scholarship Winner: Victor Brazeau
Victor Brazeau is entering his senior year at California State University, Northridge.
His fascination with cast off and discarded items, and his interest in exploring the ideas of nostalgia, strength and fragility, are evident in his work. The sculptural assemblages Victor creates from salvaged materials and remnants of peoples' lives are both soulful and dynamic.
Victor's interests in art, technology and sculpture are combined in a proposal he is preparing for LACMA's 2016 Art & Technology Lab. His project is a hybrid of sculpture and user interface that is composed of the personal effects of people who have passed on. An online interface will allow friends and family to upload images into a digital collage that will be displayed over the sculpture. Victor will use the scholarship award to help fund the prototype used in his proposal.
