Statler Waldorf Gallery is pleased to present “My House is Your House." The exhibition examines couples who work together, either in a direct capacity, or by sharing an intimate space outside of their respective studio practice(s). A partner’s role as confidant and critic is essential, as they are often privy to the most intimate evolutions that each other’s work endures over time. How do the conversations that happen within a studio and a home, with a partner whose opinion is a trusted source, affect one’s practice? “My House is Your House” also celebrates the role that communities of like-minded individuals (partners of another sort) play in our creative endeavors. In opening up one’s home, and creating connections with those around us, we build exchanges that ultimately make our world meaningful.

There's incredibly vibrant and innovative art being shown all over Los Angeles but with such busy lives it's hard to get out to see it. Good news. I've done the legwork and brought the very best of what I've seen back to my house.

REBUS RECONSTRUCTURING

Study for Three Peaks

Curated by John O'Brien and Cielo Pessione
Participating Artists: Wendy Adest, Nena Amsler, Daniel Brodo, Matty Byloos, Jamison Carter, April Durham, Samantha Fields, Margaret Griffith, Mary Addison Hackett, Erika Lizée, Mara Lonner, Meg Madison, Nancy Monk, John O'Brien, Cielo Pessione, Rebecca Ripple, Steve Roden, Joseph Santarromana, Jose Sarinana, Elizabeth Saveri, Telemachus Studios, Carolee Toon, Shirley Tse, Hoang Vu and Andre Yi.

This is an exhibition of 25 contemporary L.A. visual artists who participated in collaboration with Sistema Museo in the Umbria region of Italy. Artwork was selected or created by these artists to travel and be exhibited within the existing archeological fragments on view in the Archeological Museum of Amelia in summer 2009. Placing their artwork within these archeological remains provided artists with a unique opportunity to find a significant and unusual setting for their work and to interact with these important art historical sources. Rebus Reconstructuring documents the results of this process by displaying the selected artwork and photographic images of the artworks within the museum collections.

Structural Through-Line (Coherence)

Sequoia Mandala

Paul Davies | Christina Shurts | Andre Yi

February 27 – April 3, 2010

Opening Reception, Saturday, February 27th, 6 – 10pm

Lawrence Asher Gallery examines structure through the eyes and compositions of three distinctive painters. Paul Davies balances exquisite modern architecture in abstracted, painterly environs utilizing contemporary art-making techniques. Christina Shurts' loose and free application of paint reduces concerns with engineering principles of her super-structures. Dream states and imperfect memories serve as the catalyst of her creations. Andre Yi continues his masterly renderings of landscape and structure from a more focused, natural perspective. These paintings, inspired by his own photographs of National forests and parks, effectively examine man's complex relationship with the natural world.

PROSPECTS: AN EXPLORATION OF MINING at Sun Valley Center for the Arts

This multidisciplinary project will examine mining's history as well as its controversial present through lectures, visual arts exhibitions and films.

Mining is an essential part of the story of the Wood River Valley. Beginning in the 1860s, prospectors arrived in the valley in search of silver, galena and gold. The towns of Bellevue, Hailey and Ketchum sprang up to serve an influx of immigrants who came from Ireland, Wales, Germany and China to work the mines. Although eventually replaced by the sheep industry and later tourism, the long-term impact of mining on the valley continues to resonate.

Southern Exposure at Ruby Green

Southern Exposure is a sampler of drawings by 15 southern California artists. The curator Mery Lynn McCorkle is originally from Georgia and has observed the parallels between work executed in California and in the South. Both areas are extremely influenced by nature, its colors, textures and rhythms. This exhibit provides an opportunity for residents of Nashville to see preparatory sketches and studies as well as finished work by some of southern California's most interesting artists.

The Nature of LA

Traywick Contemporary is pleased to present The Nature of LA, an exhibition featuring four Los Angeles-based painters whose work is brimming with social and environmental awareness. As a group, the work reflects an enchantment with the life of the natural world while addressing the paradoxical experience of the contemporary American landscape...

Texas native Andre Yi explores the precarious relationship between architecture and the landscape. His delicate renderings of crumbling, solitary buildings float ghost-like, in monochromatic color fields. The spare landscapes create beauty out of something wasted and remind us of nature's awesome ability to reclaim the land after civilization's departure.

Close to Home: Recent Acquisitions from the Permanent Collection MCASD

Close to Home acquisition

Close to Home features works on paper from MCASD’s collection acquired in the last four years. The exhibition showcases the collection's depth and range with works by artists such as Faiya Fredman, Mauro Staccioli, and John Baldessari.

Highlighting the Museum’s commitment to artistic practice, the exhibition emphasizes the relationship between purely enjoying art and using an investigative eye. Each piece asks the viewer not to be complacent in consumption of images but critically interact with them. The exhibition follows a progression of redefining common ideas about portraiture, American culture, inhabited space, and the beauty of nature. Whether it is an alternative concept of American lifestyle, as seen in Alexis Smith’s work, or spatial configuration, like the pieces by Yunhee Min, we are asked to critically examine the individual ideas we often hold so close to home.
