Saturday, September 29, 2012
Patron Event: 5:00 – 7:30 pm
“A Fair of the Arts!”: 7:30 – 10:00 pm
General Tickets: $125 | Patron Tickets: $300
When you have a popular tradition like "An Affair of the Art", you only consider changing it when it can be even more fun - both for our guests and for our artists. We think we have found a way, when the 2012 "An Affair of the Art" becomes "A Fair of the Arts"! Our guests will not only view and enjoy the art "gallery style"—they will also be able to watch featured artists creating their art—glass, batik, painting, and more. And at our unique Patron Event—inspired by the Walt Disney short film, "Four Artists Paint One Tree"—our special Patrons will watch four artists—Clifford Bailey, Zofia Kostyrko, Seisaku Sato, and George Scribner (bios below) —actually creating studies of a professional model while explaining their differing approaches and styles as they work.

PATRON EVENT ARTIST BIOS:
Clifford Bailey: Bailey graduated New York’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) in 1991 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Now living in Los Angeles, he has gone on to develop an imaginative and highly individualized style of painting. Bailey can trace the beginning of his artistic endeavors back to early childhood. With the help and encouragement of teachers and a supportive family, he found himself enrolled, and participating, in several South Florida programs for the gifted, until 1987, when he landed in New York City to begin his College training.
After graduating SVA in 1991, Bailey set his sights on Miami’s exploding South Beach night scene, throwing “one-night only” exhibitions at bustling clubs and crowded pool halls, where he attracted the attention of dozens of local businesses and collectors who quickly snatched up his work, bringing him great exposure and promotion. To this day, Bailey remains a traveling artist, riding on the waves of his artwork to destinations all over the country.
He exhibits his work in galleries, nightclubs, boutiques, as well as several private homes in cities such as Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, Miami, New York and Los Angeles. His paintings evoke the era and ambiance of the roaring twenties, but with a modern twist; from his portraits of musicians in fine-tailored suits to his sparse and dramatic street scenes, his work continues to be admired and acquired by collectors around the world, for more than 20 years now.
Zofia Kostyrko: is a classically trained artist, designer, and thinker. Among many creative adventures since her touch-down in the City of Angels, Zofia was a senior conceptual designer at Disney's WDI for a lucky 13 years, 9 of them on the Disney Animal Kingdom; she dreamt up ideas for Cirque du Soleil; made props for Pee-Wee's Playhouse Kids TV show and theatrical costumes for stage at LATC and CALTECH, and painted an Asian baby elephant for the Los Angeles Zoo. She designed, illustrated and produced children books and museum exhibits, and always looked for any excuse to make art: Bold. Beautiful. Meaningful. Different. Zofia is highly accomplished in using both the traditional techniques: oils, pastels, acrylics, paper sculptures and mixed media, as well as wide range of digital painting & modeling tools.
Currently in the midst of her latest project, 365 faces in 365 days, she is capturing individuals’ spark on canvas and writing the stories of the people (and other creatures) that move her through both light and dark emotions. She is now sharing her time between painting; running her exhibit and entertainment design studio, and developing new ideas (sleep? who needs sleep??) in LA, with her husband Charles, daughters Vero & La, stray cats Boo & Shiva, and a genius dog Nina.
Seisaku Sato: Since 1983 to present, he has worked on various design work for Tokyo Disney Resort. With his vast knowledge in Disney Characters, over the past 25 years he has created several pieces of artwork as well as dimensional pieces. His wide variety of expertise includes; Sign Graphics, Special Event Photo Opportunities and Merchandise Shop Window Displays. Also, since 2005, he has been responsible for program development and instructor training at the Disney Drawing Class within Tokyo Disneyland, where he himself also participated in the facility design as well. In his spare time, he is avid for animation, science fiction movies and videos games. Also, one of his hobbies includes 3D photography, and he has extended that hobby even to underwater.
George Scribner: I was born and raised in Panama City, Republic of Panama and in 1977 moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in animation. After working at various animation houses including Chuck Jones Studio, I joined Walt Disney Feature Animation as a character animator in 1983. I directed Oliver and Company, a full length animated feature that was released in 1988. I worked as a concept and story artist on numerous projects including The Lion King, Fantasia Continued and Dinosaur. I am currently a contractor at Walt Disney Imagineering as a concept artist and Animation Director. I’ve been commissioned by the Republic of Panama to paint large scale oil paintings of the upcoming Panama Canal Expansion – a nine year project. I will be painting the various phases of construction through 2014.
