John Nava, renowned painter and creator of the highly-praised tapestries at the Cathedral of our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, will discuss his newly-published book, Sacred Material: The Art of the Tapestries of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, on December 10 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Levity Live at the Collection in Oxnard. This is a free event Sponsored by Paula Spellman
Sacred Material recounts the ground-breaking techniques employed in creating the three monumental commissions, The Communion of Saints, The Baptism of the Lord and The New Jerusalem for the Cathedral. The commission, combined with Nava’s keen knowledge of art history, masterful painting techniques and state-of-the-art pioneering technology, secured his place in the first chapter of the history of 21st Century American Art.
A generous portion of the proceeds from the sale of Sacred Material will benefit Focus on the Masters wide-ranging arts education programming. Purchasing your copy at this event is a marvelous opportunity to add to your own arts library and to continue the legacy of Focus on the Masters.
