Subject/Observer is a group exhibition in which a selected group of artists create a chain of portraits using each other as their subjects. Pairings are selected at random, each artist serving as the subject for another’s portrait. Ultimately this project seeks to investigate the relationships and exchanges that take place when artists attempt understanding through the context of portraiture. Given the various nature of relationships between each artist and subject, a diverse body of work is inevitable. Unrestricted by method or medium, it is hoped that these works can bring into consideration questions of identity, both of the artist and subject, as well as the nature of information exchanged when creating a portrait.
MEMORIES ON LOCATION
Exhibition Dates: February 17 - 25, 2018
Curator Talk & Closing: Sunday, February 25 | 1:30-3:30PM (talk starts at 2PM)

Memories on Location features artwork that explores places and objects, real and imagined, that provide visual cues to connect one with the past. Color and texture are layered and mixed in a variety of ways to convey emotions and suggest locations. The viewer is invited to explore her or his own imagination and interpretation to unlock places, times and feelings from their own memory.
Each of the selected artists has a personal story of moving, the common thread of transition - and absence of figures - connecting these works, even as the methods and media vary. CHENG builds sculptures of analog cameras out of the pages of books and old maps, while HEFFLER's Anthropocene paintings suggest topographical maps. MARRA and RASMUSSEN each draw on architecture and fabric to evoke memories, with Marra referencing abstracted bits of building blocks from past homes, while Rasmussen's use of color and flattened spaces suggest nostalgia. NGUYEN harkens back to the style of Oriental scroll paintings with meandering landscapes that lead the eye up and back through the canvas, while employing a contemporary use of color and texture.

Cactus Gallery is pleased to present PATTERNS - an exhibition of work which uses patterns in some way. At its most basic, a pattern is a repetition, but patterns exist in nature, in cycles of the year, life and death, in light and words, and there are patterns of human or societal behavior.

La Luz de Jesus Gallery presents The 5th Annual Coaster Show
September 1 - October 1, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, Sept. 1st, 8-11 PM
Closing Party: Sunday, Oct. 1st noon-six PM
The Coaster Show 2017
It’s the Wooden Anniversary of the La Luz de Jesus Coaster Show. What started as a last minute substitution has grown into one of the most anticipated events of the LA Art Scene, now in its fifth year!
We’ve all done it. We’ve sat at the bar, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.
But most of us aren’t the extremely skilled painters, illustrators, animators, tattooists, sculptors or collage artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.
We produced a custom canvas for some of our favorite gallery folks to do what they do best, and transform a 4″ tondo coaster into museum worthy exhibition pieces.
Whether you love beer or don’t, the art will blow your mind.

Finishing Concepts proudly presents SPACIAL/RECOGNITION
Reception: Saturday, August 26th 1-6pm
SPACIAL/RECOGNITION focuses on how architecture can shape and direct us in unseen ways. Artists, who often work in non-traditional spaces, must grapple with how space, and changes to space, can affect the outcome of their work. In this show, each artist explores the concept in a unique fashion, whether by challenging the traditional constraints of the rectangle, inhabiting three-dimensional space, or presenting the exploration of inner space in a profound manner. SPACIAL/RECOGNITION contains pieces which touch and play with the space around them; they cut; they mimic; they assert.
“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”
- Winston Churchill
Mandy Lyn Ford
For the inaugural exhibit at their new location in Monterey Park, Finishing Concepts invites the community to come experience the newly renovated space.

Group show and fundraiser benefitting Oliver Hess
Opening reception: JULY 8, 2017 6-8pm
Keystone friend, artist, and former tenant Oliver Hess and his wife Allison need your support! Oliver has been fighting an aggressive cancer, trying everything from chemo to stem cell replacement and immunotherapy.
Midsummer Infinitum is a group show comprised of over 30 artists, including Oliver and Allison’s friends and colleagues, as well as former and current artists of Keystone Art Space. All of the artwork in the show has been donated by these artists in the hopes to help raise some much-needed funds.
Keystone has always strived to be a supportive environment for the artists that work within it. Oliver has always brought some next-level thinking and work into the fold. Help us honor Oliver’s spirit of collaboration and group-driven projects by joining us for the opening on Saturday July 8th.
All proceeds from gallery sales will go toward Oliver and Allison’s expenses as they continue to fight Oliver’s cancer.

Can't make it to the show? There are other ways you can help - one is a Gofundme campaign. Another is a Patreon page set up by Oliver and Allison. They are taking the whole experience of navigating this disease and treatment, and turning it into art and research.
Save the Date! I'll be participating in Hive Gallery's 12 Year Anniversary show. Last year's anniversary show was my favorite from the gallery, bringing in work from any artist previously associated with the gallery - so it's very exciting to be invited this year!
