Ryan McGinness: Community Identity Stability

Quint Gallery

November 8 through December 31, 2014

In his new work, Ryan McGinness is thinking about his older work -- or he's engaged in "quiet contemplation" about his past decade worth of output. And because he's contemplating ten years, he made ten new paintings and ten monoprints.

Rita McBride: Public Tilt

Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego - Downtown

October 10, 2014 through February 8, 2015

Ron Nagle: Peripheral Cognition

San Diego Museum of Art

November 1, 2014 through February 17, 2015

Ron Nagle, a ceramic artists who started working in the 1960s and whose quirky approach often gets him grouped with guys like Ken Price, hasn't had a big, serious museum show until now. This show will included Art Deco spin-offs, splatters on linoleum and little rock-like forms that seem to be giving birth to aliens.

American Visions: Place and Identity

San Diego Museum of Art

October 23, 2014 through February 22, 2015

Starting with paintings from the 19th century, this works-from-the-collection show tries to trace the "Americanization" of painting, how slowly American painters separated themselves from their European predecessors and started doing their own thing. It goes all the way up to the 1960s and 70s.
