Jeanne Silverthorne: Down the Hole and into the Grain

Shoshana Wayne Gallery

November 1 through January 3, 2015

New York artist Jeanne Silverthorne, who has been working with rubber and exploring the ruins and detritus that come out of an artist's studio practice for years, has been thinking about loss and lost objects lately. So in this show, there will be portraits of lost people and things and objects that morph into other objects, thus losing their initial form.

MOCA Grand Avenue

Shadows, a "monumental painting" by Warhol, has 120 parts, all based on photos the artist took of shadows in his studio. "Andy Warhol's Shadows are the line between the American dream and the American death," says MOCA director Phillip Vergne (meaning they're about both glamour and darkness).

Contemporary/Modern: Selections from the Permanent Collection

Santa Barbara Museum of Art

August 31 through January 4, 2015

The museum is showing work from its collection that dates back to the 1950s (e.g., Helen Frankenthaler) and reaches forward to now (e.g., Josiah McElheny). The idea is to underscore "an ongoing and dynamic dialogue" between then and now.


Pasadena | Inland Empire

An Opening of the Field: Jess, Robert Duncan, and Their Circle | Burning Down the House: Ellen Brooks, Jo Ann Callis, Eileen Cowin | Stas Orlovski: Chimera

Pasadena Museum of California Art

September 14 through January 11, 2015

Jess Collins was a painter, Robert Duncan was a poet and their "circle" included all different kinds of artists that Collins and Duncan influenced. This show, mostly of paintings, tries to trace that influence. In the adjacent galleries, Ellen Brooks, Jo Ann Callis and Eileen Cowin are all showing dramatic photographs that look staged even when they might not be. Stas Orlovski has an immersive animation projected on all walls of the lobby gallery.
