When you think of art institutions in downtown L.A., you likely think of The Broad, MoCA, Hauser Wirth & Schimmel—but probably not Union Station. And yet, the train hub continues to roll out unusual and interesting exhibitions as part of its inaugural summer entertainment series, making them something of a cultural dark horse. On August 6, they’re debuting Cabinet of Curiosities, a peculiar installation in the Grand Waiting Room that could be described as a modern-day peep show. Full disclosure: If you’re a voyeur and the term “peep show” got you all hot and bothered, move on, nothing to see here. The peepable aspect of it involves tiny scenes seen through a magnifying glass...
Entertainment line-up features emerging bands of Live Nation’s Ones to Watch Summer Concert Series, an innovative interactive cinematic experience Union Station 360° and the art installation, Cabinet Of Curiosities.

Please join us for an exciting one-night sale of carefully curated art from the nation's most promising artists. Featuring DJ Anne Litt, great raffle prizes, a hosted bar with tasty cocktails and Stella Artois. Proceeds benefit after school art programs at Heart Of Los Angeles (H.O.L.A.). Founded in 2001, fresh stART, the annual fundraising event of the McCall Family Foundation, is a one-night art exhibition and sale with two distinct goals. Our primary goal is to fund programs that provide arts-related therapies to children designated "at-risk." Secondly, fresh stART strives to stimulate the arts in Los Angeles by providing potential collectors with a personal connection to both established and emerging artists.
In The Drawing Show, the drawings by these local artists remind us that this medium can be equally valued as painting as a primary mode of expression. Drawings by Nancy Baker Cahill, Jodi Bonassi, Abel Alejandre, Nancy Baker Cahill, Susan Feldman, Joanne Julian, Echiko Ohira, Milo Reice, Kent Twitchell, J. Michael Walker, and Andre Yi cover the walls and stairwells of the unique exhibition space. Amazing portraiture by local muralist Kent Twitchell capture one’s careful attention. Andre Yi enhances his drawings of dead birds with pencil shavings, poured paint, and collage components. In a separate small gallery space are drawings by Joanne Julian. Julian’s work is derived from Asian traditions with her nature-based images and Zen Circles.. One’s eyes never tire with these exhibitions that offer such a variety of unique approaches to their respective mediums. I plan to revisit both of these exhibitions when I can enjoy them in solitude and recommend you do the same, as both of these are well worth a careful viewing experience.
Drawing is one of the oldest forms of human expression: Over 30,000 years ago, artists drew herds of bison racing across the rock walls of Grotte Chavet. In more recent times, drawings were considered problem-solving exercises, with emphasis on observation and investigation; they were produced as preparation for the more privileged media of painting and sculpture. But today, many artists use drawing as their primary or only art form. "The Drawing Show" focuses on artists whose aesthetic practices focus on drawing.

Traywick Contemporary is pleased to announce Inherent Nature, a group exhibition featuring five West Coast artists who respond to and engage with the physical world through distinct practices. Each artist constructs meaning in their work directly from the societal, cultural and environmental issues that shape our time, and their work comments on the push and pull of nature and culture through the artistic process, dialogue and play of forms.
Andre Yi (Los Angeles) looks to the neighborhood surrounding his studio in the fashion district of LA for inspiration in his recent series of sculptures. His complex and elaborate structures or “habitats” are built from materials, both natural and man-made, that are readily found inside and outside of his studio.
(Los Angeles) -- Edward Cella Art + Architecture is pleased to announce 6018 WILSHIRE for its feature Fall exhibition. The exhibition is a survey of the artists who have exhibited at this iconic Miracle Mile location since its establishment as an art space in 2003, and represents the final exhibition to take place there before the gallery’s planned relocation to a new facility in early 2015. Over the course of eleven years, the location has hosted two galleries and helped anchor a cohort of galleries on Museum Row. 6018 Wilshire pays tribute to the hundreds of artists that have shown in the space in more than a hundred solo and numerous group exhibitions.
