This is my first time showing with Sugarmynt Gallery and they have taken on sixteen of my mixed media cityscape paintings and limited edition, fine art prints. Yow! The gallery is in a great spot off of Mission Street. Check it out!
Finally, three of the paintings from my Broadway series are hanging in the Rolling Hills Country Club in Palos Verdes. I know, I know. It isn't an "art gallery," but it is a beautiful space and I couldn't be more pleased to share my work with the members of this club which "reinforces great traditions from generation to generation."
The Sixth Street Viaduct from the Seventh Street Bridge, 2016
I don't know about you, but I've been thinking about the Sixth Street Viaduct quite a bit as it undergoes demolition.
I've never believed that preservation should stand in the way of (actual) progress, but I've also never believed that progress is possible without history and acknowledgement thereof. So while this old bridge that (frankly) is more odd than lovely and more eclectic than formal, absolutely requires replacement, I find myself lamenting the loss of her character which is so distinctly "Los Angeles." (A sign of the times, I suppose.) That said, what a great city and how exciting that she is finally getting some time in the lime light! The new viaduct will be world class and THAT is noteworthy! I expect to write some blog posts about my memories of the bridge soon and I will be sure to share them with you.
Also, for those of you familiar with the Pasadena area, the San Rafael Bridge over the Arroyo was recently demolished. That bridge was the subject of my first commissioned painting ever! I'll never forget her lofted arches covered with moss on the North-facing sides. Nor will I forget the high-school hang-out spot beneath her Eastern span. Turns out every kid in Pasadena spent a little or a lot of time there at one point or another.
Gaah! It's all so nostalgic it is a little difficult to talk about, BUT, I raise a glass to the future civic architectures which will replace these landmarks. Here's to graceful, considerate, accessible public spaces which will endure for many, many, many years to come!
The Golden Hour (The Sixth Street Viaduct)
spray paint, gold leaf on frosted acrylic.12" x 42". $850. Contact me for more info.
In the mean time, here's the news from the studio:
I have recently uploaded some artworks to the Saatchi Art platform. Boy is there a lot of work for sale over there! It's a great place to search according to your interests. Follow the link to see for yourself:

"Memories are formed in various ways, using all of the senses. When a landmark repeatedly passes through your visual field, a sort of charcoal rubbing begins to take shape in your brain – each subsequent pass resulting in a subtly deeper shade of grey, or an eventual, permanent black. These cumulatively rich, more finite collections of lines and curves, over time, become a part of you."
A fantastic article about my work and its significance was written by Jennifer Susan Jones in Beautiful Bizaarre Magazine. She totally "got" me. Read the article in the link below:

I'm from one of those rare families that arrived in Los Angeles five generations ago and hasn't left. Everyone comes to LA and everything is already here! But, it's getting harder to stay. Some days I feel betrayed by LA's rising prices and foreign real estate cash. Other days, the city delights with new experiences and comforts with familiarity. Most days, however, I keep my head down and hustle, knowing I am one of the lucky ones. Yet I find myself saying protectively, "Don't go there: terrible traffic, low wages, struggling work force. You wouldn't like it." My declarations are honest, but deceptive. LA's also optimistic. “She's open minded. She accepts your history but embraces the future. You can disappear and be found in her at the same time.”
Fragmented Realities: City of Dreams is a beautiful, frenetic and bewildered visual love letter to Los Angeles. Paintings composed of layered elements of street lights found throughout the city are framed by maps of sprawling highways and punctuated by observation benches. The lights are an old Los Angeles tradition which I imagine to be our Angels, stoically protecting our endless streets, delineating neighborhoods, and watching generations pass. My paintings are emblematic of our contemporary experiences of Los Angeles: rarely straight forward, constantly in motion, exciting, uncertain and ethereal.
Fragmented Realities: City of Dreams is book-ended by two texts focusing on Los Angeles; “Los Angeles, City of Dreams” 1935 by Harry Carr and “Leaving Los Angeles” by Scott Timberg in Los Angeles Magazine, July 2015.

Teale Hatheway is a Los Angeles‐based artist exploring the intersection of observation, recollection and architecture. Her mixed media paintings explore the theory that environments are remembered as compilations of elements with which we develop emotional or intellectual connections. She extracts details (such as pattern, color, form and texture) from the urban environment and utilizes them to trigger recognition of place. The results are layered, fragmented representations which convey the way we frame, archive, and recall our physical surroundings.
A fourth generation Angeleno and an advocate of historic preservation, she finds Los Angeles to be an ideal source of subject matter for her paintings. Its history often being dismissed for its future, Hatheway hopes to bring attention to Los Angeles architecture by demonstrating to viewers their often unrealized, but always personal experiences of a city on the cusp of understanding its historical significance.
Teale Hatheway is an internationally exhibited and collected artist. She earned her BA from Scripps College in Claremont, California, where, along with an education in contemporary art practice, she developed a love of western sociology and history. Hatheway studied figurative painting at the Slade School of Fine Arts, University College London. While abroad, she began her personal studies of architecture and urban planning. Upon graduation, Hatheway was awarded for her extensive library featuring readings on spatial theory, architecture, stage design, photography, art, urban planning and the philosophy of the effect of structures on the human condition. She acquired additional knowledge through studies of photography and architecture at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena.

I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect - they are much more interesting. -Marc Jacobs
All the photo taking, documenting and editing or art is finally coming to fruition! A new online portfolio of my recent paintings can be found here:
Ranging in size form 6"x6" to 8"x16", these pieces are abstracted from elements of stencils I hand cut, exhibiting the details of existing and historic street lights. Los Angeles is obscurely acknowledged for it's world class collection of historic street lights which are indicative of neighborhoods and communities throughout the city. Abstracting the stencils and working in vibrant, layered colors was a playful experiment for me and I love the elegant and urban results which hang in any number of arrangements. I hang them differently every time! They will be up in my shop soon, but in the mean time, you can contact me for purchase inquiries. Enjoy!
Teale Hatheway is a Los Angeles based artist known for her mixed media paintings and installations of local architecture, streetlights and ornamental details.
