IT’S ART IF I SAY IT’S ART. OTHERWISE, IT’S NOT. @ Eastern Projects Gallery
Mar 16 – Apr 27 all-day

Eastern Projects Gallery is pleased to present the work of Scott Johnson, a mixed-media artist and well-known Los Angeles-based architect. The solo exhibition runs from Saturday, March 16 to Saturday, April 27, 2019. The opening reception takes place on Saturday March 16 from 6-10 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

The work includes large and small format paintings and works on paper which explore the dialectic between the architectural order which surrounds us and the chaos of streaming media we experience daily. Replete with painting, hand-drawing and imaging drawn from multiple sources, the works consist of the layering of various transparent materials which create depth and dimension and a sense of buried meanings.

TELL ME A STORY AND I’LL SING YOU A SONG @ Charlie James Gallery
Apr 6 – May 4 all-day

Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun 12pm – 5pm
Artist Reception, APRIL 6, 2019, 6-9PM

Charlie James Gallery is pleased to present Tell Me a Story And I’ll Sing You a Song, a group exhibition curated by Bianca Moran, with works by Yasmine Diaz, Ramiro Gomez, David Huffman, Dulce Soledad Ibarra, Vincent Miranda, Star Montana, Chinwe Okona, noé olivas, Umar Rashid and Savannah Wood.

This exhibition showcases a group of artists whose practices are invested in the exploration of narrative and the ways in which the personal intersects and complicates the historical record. Through painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and installation, these artists explore the nuance and tension that exists between personal histories and dominant historical narratives. There is in each piece the element of juxtaposition that puts forth a reconsideration of context and content, material and meaning. As such, each work is a gesture towards the formation of a visual language that can be read as annotations to the histories that have been built around and through but not from.
