Earth Day Colors: The World of Dion Neutra


The Neutra gallery hosted the closing party for the show entitled “Conversations in Color.” An explosion of oranges, blues, greens, and reds enveloped architect Richard Neutra’s former offices. The bright room was bright with Caribbean overtones. Although they work with lots of color, their individual styles shone through. Francisco Alvarado‘s work has bold, macho, swaggering style, while Sophia Tise’s style is decidedly British with Caribbean  overtones.  The two met in art school and decided to be friends.

This show was a celebration for earth day an event near and dear to Dion Neutra’s heart. The show was curated by Roy Rogers Oldencamp. Dion’s wish is to build a park on his property to celebrate earth day every year. We suggest you stop by the Neutra  Institute  Center for Survival (across the street from the Red Lion Tavern) and sign the petitions to help make Dion’s dream come to fruition.

At closing, we celebrated architect Richard Neutra’s 124th birthday (better late than never). The candles  were lit by Lynn Smart (Mrs. Dion Neutra), Dion Neutra and Raymond. Richard Neutra presented the cake to the attendees. Richard was there in spirit.
