Twenty eight artists will share their personal vision of the landscape and the road that takes us through it in Highway 2 - the journey and the destination, a gallery art show opening at The Modest Fly Art Studio and Gallery on September 27 2014.

Highway 2 in California begins in the city, but where it becomes the Angeles Crest Highway, its character changes. It transforms. It takes on an air majestic; it sweeps us across the rugged San Gabriels, a land of sometimes harsh extremes, all the way to San Bernadino County, through the charming community of Wrightwood, and out into the desert beyond.

For many southern California residents, their childhood memories are wound around the places the highway takes us: waterfalls, hiking trails, campgrounds, picnic areas. For others, the road itself beckons.

In works ranging from small basketry pieces to expansive canvases, the show includes Native American forest textile art, photography, oil, acrylic and watercolor painting, sculpture, wood carving and hand-crafted prints and paper art. It also includes two international artists and the support of the local arts community at large.

The vision behind the show is to bring together not only great art, but mutual respect and understanding among forest visitors, users and even forest residents…although they are vastly out-numbered by those who visit the forest for a wide range of recreational pursuits, there are in fact people who live year-round in the forest.

This first annual presentation of Highway 2 - the journey and the destination debuts in Tujunga; the show’s creator, Corina Roberts, has a vision for the effort that is already bigger than its present space allows. Roberts wants to include a series of presentations in conduction with the show, ranging from forest ecology and Native American culture to highway safety and artist’s workshops.

The Modest Fly Art Studio and Gallery will be full to capacity for the opening show with the work of Momo Moonflower, Raquel Danieri, Hooman Salari, Hock Hian Wong, Debby Beck, Shelley Matousek, Kimberly Ann Talbert, David Cline, Darren Martinelli, Aaron Dooley, Corina Roberts, Ruth Dios, Marilee Spencer, Michele Robinson, Ronda Thomas, Rudy "Rude" Martinez, Guido Frazzini, Nadiya Littlewarrior, Lydia Vassar, Klaus Pintar, Jeff Zimmerman, Jennifer Zapp, Yuki Toy, Tony Campos, Allan Reyes, Diane Kohne Kenny, Becky Mate and Dana Walker.  Highway 2 boasts an equally impressive line up of sponsors; Newcomb's Ranch, McGroarty Arts Center, River Rock Arts Colony, Shelley Matousek and the Sunland Tujunga Neighborhood Council Committee for Arts, Culture and Recreation.  

Highway 2 - The journey and the destination is co-hosted by The Modest Fly Art Gallery and Studio and Redbird. Redbird is a non profit Native American and environmental association celebrating twenty years of community service in 2014 and connected to the Angeles through a variety of projects, and a land base, Chilao School, now open for art, cultural and environmental workshops and events.
