Two group exhibitions: "Inner Journeys Outer Visions" and "Che Mondo (What a World): "Hand-made" photographs by Southern California Artists"
Los Angeles, CA 90027
Inner Journeys Outer Visions looks at the persistent yearning for spiritual enlightenment in contemporary thought and art. Through the ages and through a diversity of styles and thinking artists have explored color theory, abstraction, psychology, religion, the occult, and esoterica as sources to make visible the invisible and to illuminate the unfathomable through art. Artists in the exhibition are Lynn Aldrich, Craig Keith Antrim, Adam Berg, John Frame, Bonita Helmer, Gilah Yelin Hirsch, Ruth, Weisberg, and Patty Wickman.
Che Mondo (What a World) is an exhibition of photographic works made in the digital age by artists living in Southern California that collectively serve as a meditation on Steichen’s idealistic vision of photography and on the status of the photograph as a physical object. Both the imagined impact and physical reality of photography has greatly changed with the advent of film cameras, digital cameras, and now camera phones, putting visual expression virtually into the hands of the masses, and out of the exclusive realm of artists. Artists in the exhibition are Ursula Brookbank, Joyce Campbell, Gerald Incandela, Marina Pinsky, Richard Ross, Christopher Russell, Julie Shafer, and Susan Silton.
