Last Chance - January 12 through March 27, 2015
Local school kids have been helping Amir Fallah during his residency at 18th Street, bringing objects they care about to the studio and posing for group portraits and also making portraits of their future selves. Santa Monica City College students are helping too, working on the "environment" in which all Fallah's and his collaborators' portraits can be installed.
Last Chance - February 18 through March 28, 2015
Sandra Mendelsohn Rubin’s oil landscapes are hyper-real but also low-key and digestible. Ben Jackel is interested in the history of warfare — no light subject — and is an impressive craftsman, so his wood and metal objects should have a certain hardcore intensity to them. He also sculpted Teddy Roosevelt.
Last Chance - March 1 through 29, 2015
New York-based artist Bradley Kronz, an "omnivorous scavenger" according to Team Gallery, is showing a whole array of objects: a found mirror, a family photo bought on eBay and a handcrafted card stock frame. He's never had an L.A. show before.
February 28 through April 11, 2015
Working in the color field vein and using automotive paint as well as acrylic, Casper Brindle is showing new paintings. Jimi Cleason is dealing with geometry and using silver deposit with acrylic.
February 21 through April 18, 2015
Sabrina Gschwandtner makes quilts out of celluloid, specifically using 16mm film that the Fashion Institute of Technology deaccessioned, and then exhibits them in light boxes. According the press release, she's presenting "viewers with a new kind of montage."
January 17 through April 18, 2015
Brian Weil once trailed Miami homicide detectives and found people through classified ads who let him photograph them having sex. He was heavily involved in AIDS related activism when he died in 1996, and this is his first retrospective. Israeli Moshe Ninio, who's work will be in the Project Room, made a rainbow-colored hologram of a folded Middle Eastern rug.
March 7 through April 18, 2015
David Hockney, that British Angeleno, made some pseudo Cubist prints of his favorite model (or one of his favorites), Celia Birtwell. This show includes a number of Celia images and some prints from his early-1970s Weather series, like the one of a dripping, chlorine-blue pool.
March 24 through April 18, 2015
March 21 through April 18, 2015
Carlson Hatton mixes figuration with abstraction and uses watercolor, screen printing and any other material that makes sense to assemble large, multi-part works on paper. His gallery describes these works as "polyptychs" and "quadriptychs."
March 6 through April 19, 2015
Jaus is celebrating its five year anniversary with a show of new sculptures by Tanya Batura and new paintings and drawings by Brian Cooper. Both artists "playfully allude to their inner thoughts and ruminations," hence the show's title.
March 21 through May 2, 2015
Mark A. Rodriguez will be hanging vinyl tarps with American cityscapes painted on them in Emma Gray's Five Car Garage. He'll also be showing lamp sculptures and repurposed memorabilia as part of his "seemingly mass-manufactured tableau."
March 21 through May 9, 2015
Carol Es went on a ten day "exodus" to Joshua Tree National Park. She spent time in "deep meditation and study," kept a journal, and then made paintings in response to her experience. Called the "Abstracted Desert Landscapes," the paintings are part fantastical, part observational. Sometimes an animal crossing sand looks like a robot.
With the art market on a seemingly out-of-control upward spiral, the idea of collecting art may seem unrealistic for all but a select few. Santa Monica-based gallerist Emma Gray is aiming to change that with her second annual 5 Car Garage Sale. Gray founded her gallery, 5 Car Garage – literally a converted garage […]

In addition to contributing to dozens of publications, the 25-year old impresario co-owns Intellectual Property Prints, runs Youtube channel For the Funk of It, and writes […]

It used to be that the moneyed classes would dispense their endowments with scant input from the hoi polloi. The latest trend in philanthropy, however, is asking the public to vote on who is most deserving from amongst a group of competing applicants. First there was the Hammer Museum’s $25,000 Public Recognition Award, which […]
