Meet the Artist Event on Tap This Thursday for A Journey of Discovery: the Art of Ramon Ramirez
PALMDALE – Art Around Studio will host a special meet the artist event for A Journey of Discovery featuring the art of Ramon Ramirez at the Palmdale Playhouse, located at 38334 10th St. East in Palmdale, on Thursday, July 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission is free.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the artist and view his diverse range of works currently on display at the Playhouse. Light refreshments will be served.

Ramirez discovered art at the very young age of four when his grandfather invited him into his studio in Los Angeles. What started as a child’s curiosity has become a passion spanning over a half century, exploring many genres and artistic techniques. He had his first one man show at the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social. His work depicted images of everyday people from his hometown, Tijuana, Mexico.

Ramirez’ legacy includes an active participation and collaboration to establish the Casa de la Cultura Art School in Tijuana in the early 1970s. He was chosen by the California State Department of Education as the sole illustrator for the book Encuentros. Most recently, Ramirez exhibited alongside his contemporaries at the historic 1970s art retrospective at Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT) in Tijuana. Currently he is a master art teacher and mentor in his studio to award-winning students in Lancaster.
