Artist Frederika Roeder will be showing two pieces from her Water series. “Throughout my life I have been drawn to the water, and there were periods of time when it felt like I spent more time in or on the water than on dry land,” said Roeder. “Whether surfing, boogie boarding or diving I find both both exhilaration and deep solace in water. I chose these two pieces for Blue Roof’s celebration of the summer solstice. The solstice is all about the sun – but here in Southern California, I find it impossible to think about the sun, without also turning my thoughts to the ocean- either being in it, on it or looking at it.”

The Blue Roof Studios Arts Festival is funded in part by the LA Department of Cultural Affairs, LACI CleanTech incubator, Maker City LA, and the generous support of friends of Blue Roof Studios. Additional support provided by Councilman Curren D. Price, Jr., CANNDU/Empower LA, the California African American Museum, BardoLA, On Broadway Tattoos and social experiment.
