See Line Gallery presents Surface Sounding curated by Janet Levy. Ten curators each selected one artist to show works relating to surface. Surface is defined as the exterior part of anything that has length and breadth; one of the limits that bounds a solid. This exhibition will include sculpture, video, collage and painting.

JOHN BUCKLIN curated by EMMA GRAY
John Bucklin is one of the rare birds in the art world whose work can not be separated from his life. Bucklin's recent foraging for gold in the hills of the American West, was most likely born out of an impulsive desire to roam free and discover, as much as it was to trail ancestors and make art out of his findings. However, Bucklin has an eye trained in both Italy and New York - his is not fool's gold.

Emma Gray was a former ArtReview Magazine Editor and columnist for Artnet and Saatchi online magazines, and now works privately for Sandy Heller.

AMANDA CHURCH curated by COURTNEY J. MARTIN
In Amanda Church's paintings, the outlines condition the intimacy of form and color. It is as if she has contained vibrant, active fonts of liquid beneath a seamless shield, creating limited movement. The limit, of course, is the viewer's perception,because this shield is really only the vibrancy of the paint on the surface of the canvas. The outlines replicate and reinforce the control of the surface.

Courtney J. Martin is an art historian. She is the curator of numerous exhibitions and a regular contributor to Artforum.com.

MICHAEL DEE curated by SHANA NYS DAMBROT
Michael Dee moved from New York to Los Angeles in 2004. His negative star photographs and their melted plastic subjects strike a precarious balance between superficiality, depth, and beauty.

Shana Nys Dambrot is an art critic, curator and author based in Venice, CA. Her fine art & design reviews, features and interviews have appeared in scores of regional, national, international and online publications. She is currently the Managing Editor at Flavorpill.com/losangeles and the Galleries Editor at TimeOut LA. A complete account of her published books and articles can be found at sndx.net.

JOE DEUTCH curated by BRIAN BRESS
Joe Deutch is based in Los Angeles, California. He received his MFA from UCLA in 2007. He has shown at Crowe T. Brooks Gallery, St. Louis; Cirrus Gallery, Los Angeles; Track 16 Gallery, Santa Monica; and Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York. He recently had his first museum exhibition at PS1 in New York.

Brian Bress is a Los Angeles-based artist and curator. He received his BFA in film from Rhode Island School of Design in 1998, his MFA from University of California, Los Angeles in 2006. Bress is a recent Witt Visiting Scholar at the University of Michigan's School of Art and Design. His videos were recently included in a survey of the history of video in California at the Getty Museum in 2008.

JEREMY EVERETT curated by ANDREA FELDMAN FALCIONE
Jeremy Everett tackles and freezes the titanic themes of love and death, and all that lies in between, in amber for us to reflect and absorb. Whether a megaphone encased in crystals or a record warped and burnt, their sounds both muffled, shout out at the time racing past all of us. Life is short, and art is still longer; these works remind us that we all can have a moment to sing love's praise at the top of our lungs before the final curtain falls.

Andrea Feldman Falcione established her own art advisory business two years ago and in that time has built some important personal collections. She formerly spent seven years as the curator for the Ovitz Family Collection, two years as a curator at the Broad Art Foundation and nine years as a curator in the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

BILL KLEIMAN curated by LISA MELANDRI
Bill Kleiman's unruly works combine the most quotidian materials with pure imagination. His sculpture/assemblages seem to burst through the wall, sometimes spilling or dripping onto the floor. Part sci-fi landscape, part decorative element, Kleiman's pieces prove the pleasure in craft and craftiness.

Lisa Melandri is the Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Programs at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. She is the curator of the project room series at SMMoA and has organized such shows as William Pope.L-Art after White People: Time, Trees, & Celluloid... and Enigma Variations: Philip Guston and Giorgio de Chirico.

XANA KUDRJAVCEV-DEMILNER curated by ALEXANDRA GRANT
Xana Kudrjavcev-DeMilner is an artist new to Los Angeles (via Berlin and the MFA Program at Yale). Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.

Alexandra Grant is a Los Angeles-based artist who works to investigate the nature of language in painting, drawing, sculpture and video. Her work has been featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art as part of the MOCA Focus series in 2007 and most recently (2008) in a solo show at Honor Fraser Gallery in Culver City.

JULIA LATANÉ curated by ED SCHAD
Julia Latané's sculptures and installations oscillate between the delicate visible surfaces of nature and the conjectural, invisible world of superstring physics and black holes.

Ed Schad is a writer for Art Review and ArtSlant and runs the Los Angeles-based art blog, I call it ORANGES, http://icallitoranges.blogspot.com

JEFF ONO curated by MALIK GAINES
Jeff Ono is a sculptor based in Los Angeles. He has had one-person exhibitions at Feature Inc., New York; Perugi Artecontemporanea, Padova, Italy; and Asprey Jacques, London. Ono has also participated in numerous group exhibitions, including "Mis-en-Scene" curated by Bruce Hainley at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, "To Be Recycled" curated by Malik Gaines at Six Months, Los Angeles, and "New Acquisitions" at MOCA, Los Angeles. Ono is the recipeint of a Penny McCall Foundation award.

Malik Gaines is an artist and writer based in LA. Independent curatorial projects have included "Fade: African American Artists in Los Angeles" for the City of LA, "Read Me" for the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, and exhibitions by Kalup Linzy and Anna Sew Hoy for LA>

JANET ROSENER curated by PETER FRANK
Janet Rosener is a painter working in Orange County. Her imagery is abstract, with references to nature, and her technique, resulting in a luminous, textureless surface, relates directly and knowingly to the Finish/Fetish and Light-and-Space methods associated with southern California art over the last half century.

Peter Frank is Associate Editor of THEmagazineLA, a monthly periodical covering visual art in southern California, and Senior Curator at the Riverside Art Museum.
