ART CALENDAR around Southern California

A new post dedicated to artistic happenings in Southern California


You Can’t Lose If You Don’t Play

Opening reception Friday November 13th 7-10pm

Join us for the November/December release party and group exhibition “You Can’t Lose If You Don’t Play.” The exhibition features four young Los Angeles artists: Henri Paul Broyard, Rory James Toole, Townsend Madix, and Josephine Hidajat, who explore their own perspectives on the world around us through unconventional techniques and processes. Each artist has his or her own unique approaches, allowing the work and ideas illustrated in it to speak for itself. Each piece is a complex and fascinating world of its own.

Come for the art, stay for the free drinks!

“You Can’t Lose If You Don’t Play” will run through December 31, 2015. The artists will be present at the opening reception Friday, November 13th from 7-10 p.m. with food sponsored by Chinese Laundry Truck and beverages provided by M.A.D.E. The opening reception will be followed by an after party at DREAMHAUS. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 12:00– 7:00, and by appointment.

Home – Malka Nedivi and Susan T. Kurland

Opening reception November 14 6:00 pm – 9:00 PM
Featured Artists: Malka Nedivi and Susan T. Kurland
Curated by Dulce Stein
Malka and Susan both re-purpose materials to create delicate but intense artwork that will remind some of us of early memories of childhood and family.
Malka Nedivi: I always think about my mother, she is my inspiration. I use primary colors as I see them as childhood colors,It is the emotional process of uncovering layers of my childhood. My mother was a seamstress and she was always mending holes in old clothes. I think she was in a way mending the holes of her past. I feel my art is a way of mending the holes of my past.
Susan T. Kurland: I create my own fabric or textile of sorts. Often I weave a texture on the found object. Repetition of movement becomes meditative and part of the process. Finally, I arrange the made fabrics onto the found object or panel. The materials I use, which have belonged to various family members, are reminiscent of the bonds, memories and shared experiences. These bonds are sometimes tenuous and fragile yet I have found a community creates a fabric of sorts, when woven together strength and variety; a fabric of different colors and texture.

Please join us on Saturday December 5th for the opening reception of Linda Sue Price’s Solo exhibition CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT at TAG Gallery Bergamot Station.

Linda Sue Price’s recent work incorporates common words, phrases and abstract neon shapes to facilitate a dialogue, creating unexpected relationships between the two. Price first absorbs the words then instinctually reacts to them, concentrating on repetitive gestures that reflect the commonality of the words. These mixed media neon sculptures use free-form bent abstract shapes to convey their message.

Ox Pull Revisited – Cynthia Minet

Reception: Saturday, November 14 5-7pm
In Ox Pull Revisited, Cynthia Minet presents a new installation in her Unsustainable Creatures series. Specially configured to the space in theValley Performing Arts Center Gallery, the installation features two life-size illuminated sculptures of oxen made from recycled plastic materials and two large drawings. In Ox Pull, the two life-size oxen plow through a field composed of plastic bottles. Inspired by piles of kelp and detritus washed up on beaches by the tides, the installation features bottles and other materials attached to a plow made from a found piece of playground equipment. The glowing bottle-strands suggest both entrails and furrows simultaneously. The oxen, as surrogates for human experience, toil through this landscape made from their same materials in an inescapable cycle of use, re-use and refuse. They are the antithesis of “green”.
The exhibition is supported by the Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication and Instructionally Related Activities.The Valley Performing Arts Center is located on the corners of Lindley and Nordhoff Sts. The Gallery is on the Loge Level, north of the Great Hall. During the run of exhibitions, the Gallery is open to ticket holders one hour prior to performances, during intermissions and by appointment. Call Sally Adelblue at (818) 677-8800.
