As a Participating Gallery in Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, Margo Leavin Gallery is pleased to announce Celebrating Hilldale (1984-1995), an exhibition at its Hilldale Avenue building, one block east of the Robertson Boulevard gallery. From the time of its inaugural exhibition in 1984 through the next eleven years, the Hilldale gallery was host to over fifty important exhibitions. Ranging from historical surveys, such as American Abstract Painting (1985) and Sculpture of the 60s (1987), to one-and two-person shows of work by John Baldessari, John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, Robert Grosvenor, Donald Judd, Willem de Kooning, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Robert Morris, Claes Oldenburg, Giulio Paolini, Martin Puryear, and Tony Smith, among others, these significant exhibitions constitute some of the largest installations in Margo Leavin Gallery's forty-two-year history.

Celebrating Hilldale honors the gallery's history with selected works by John Baldessari, John Chamberlain, Ger van Elk, Donald Judd, William Leavitt, Richard Long, Claes Oldenburg and Allen Ruppersberg. The installation includes many large-scale works suited to the massive open space of the Hilldale gallery.

The Hilldale gallery is located at 817 Hilldale Avenue in Los Angeles. To celebrate Pacific Standard Time's opening weekend, special gallery hours will be 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, 29 September through Saturday, 1 October. The space will remain open on Saturday afternoons from 1 to 5 p.m., and by appointment, through 22 October.

John M. Miller's exhibition, "Yesterdays", remains on view at the Robertson Boulevard gallery, located at 812 North Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles. Hours at the Robertson gallery are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
