After working together since the inception of the Outlets at Tejon, developers Andrew Boyle and Peter Edelmann have teamed up with Tejon Ranch Company and The Rockefeller Group to open an immersive art experience at the Outlets. The space is an expansive 11,000 square feet. Bird Dog Arts is set to officially open to the public on Friday.
The space will feature California artists of varying levels from master to new and up-and-coming. With weekly turnover of new products, Bird Dog Arts will include various kinds of pieces including paintings, sculptures, glass, jewelry, and textiles at varied price points to appeal to many different tastes and budgets.
Current artists on display include Ariah Myles Boyle, Coolie Grey, Debra Vodhanel, Joseph Heffernan and Felix Adamo but features original contemporary artwork by more than fifty California artists. Bird Dog Arts also regularly seeks out artists of varying backgrounds and skill levels to contribute to California’s creative economy. Those interested in displaying their work at the Outlets can complete an application on the Bird Dog Arts website.
“Adding Bird Dog Arts to the Outlets adds a unique element to the variety of options for our shoppers and travelers and simultaneously supports our community and local artists,” says Becca Bland, marketing director of The Outlets at Tejon.
In addition to the vast array of unique artwork, Bird Dog Arts customers can also participate in workshops that encourage creation, ingenuity, and education.
“Future plans may even include murals and event reception hosting,” says David Gordan, managing partner at Bird Dog Arts. “The options are limitless.”
