Coldsprings Fine Art, located inside the Douglas Building is on the corner of 3rd and Spring St in downtown Los Angeles. Coldsprings Fine Art’s current exhibition is “Yosemite Winter" by Southern California’s own Ben Dewell. The show treats the viewer to spectacular view of Yosemite in the winter. Dewell’s black and white photographs are classic, traditionally produced gelatin silver prints. Ben is a southern California native who is now living in Valencia.Coldsprings Fine Art is the first stop on the US tour of "1000 Teddies" an installation by Philipp Jordan, featuring 1000 brightly colored, painted teddy bears. This traveling exhibition just completed a 7 city tour of Europe. Until now, one could only image what it would feel like to have 2000 eyes staring at you. Jordan’s bears, with their stunned expressions reflect a childlike state of amazement, extreme curiosity and at times annoyance. Boldly colored, all of Jordan’s 1000 bears have shiny black noses and large white eyes. Color symbolizes the wonderment of childhood, and for Jordan, adulthood means the loss of color. Jordan explains “I don’t paint my paintings for children, but for the child in each of us.” The teddy bear is a magical symbol of childhood.
