> DESCRIPTION
Back from a month away from the gallery, Douglas Orr is back curating at Gallery Expo with an exiting new group exhibit. With 17 artists this exhibit seems to hit a homerun. The art ranges from contemporary to Steam Punk and back to the old the favorites of more traditional art.
New to Gallery Expo is Long Beach artist Connie DK Lane with her larger then life, in your face, contemporary 3-D statements constructed of foam, fabric, rope, nails, paper mache, and found onjects. The earthy look of Connie's work partially comes from the wide array of matterials she uses and also from her spontaneous interaction with the materials thus revealing the sculptures and imbuing them with an organic feel as well as a sense of chaos and deterioration. As evocative as the forms are to her, Connie's hope is to create works wrought with layers of emotion, rendered through the complexity and richness of the materials. Connie is featuring three of her works in this open call exhibit.
 
Another Long Beach area artist new to Gallery Expo is Nash Bellows, a painter who uses bright colors and figurative work to represent many aspects of her personality. Her work deals with the various ways people create identities in life. Nash says that most people only see the external shell of one another and base their viewpoints on material aspects. Nash's art shows what she personally deems excessive in her life such as food, family influence and personal possessions. Nash has two works featured in our exhibit.
 
Returning popular Long Beach artist Nairobi Tony. Nairobi Tony was born and raised in Kenya and moved to California in 1965 at age 12.
He draws with a fountain pen and describes himself as a self-taught, "outsider" artist whose subjects include cosmic energies and cats. He is influenced by the flow of the ink and the spur of the moment. Many of his works are done in a stipple fashion and have an African Folk Art look and feel. Beside some jewelry and ceramic that we carry Nairobi has two acrylic on canvas works in this exhibit.
 
This open call exhibit opens to the public on Friday February 1st between 6pm and 10pm and then is open Sat. Feb 2, Feb 8 & 9, Feb 15 & 16 and Feb 22 between 4 & 8pm.
Gallery Expo is located inside the EXPO Arts Center at 4321 Atlantic Ave with free public parking on the north side of the building or on the street. Gallery Expo is free and open to the public. Please, no strollers or dogs in the gallery and small children must be held by an adult.
