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. For additional information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and 213.610.4110
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.

CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT
Linda Sue Price
CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT
Exhibition dates November 24th to December 19th
Opening reception December 5th 6-9pm
2525 Michigan Ave,
Santa Monica, CA 90404
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.

Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to announce Genevieve Gaignard: Us Only, the artist’s second solo show in Los Angeles and her first exhibition with the gallery. Gaignard, a 2014 graduate of Yale University School of Art with an MFA in Photography, creates site-specific installations dominated by the photographic medium to evoke a nostalgia of place and identity–recalling specific geographies and histories. This new body of work uses video, collage, photography and ready-made objects to build upon Gaignard’s practice of character-based self-portraiture to explore of issues of race and gender.
