Under the Radar at Lawrence Asher Gallery is an exhibition by important Latino artists.   Each one has achieved a notable level of recognition with work that combines commanding execution and great visual style. While these artists are not yet part of the mainstream art world, many of them have been honing their craft for years, perfecting techniques and imbuing their works with the breath of creativity.  They have managed a unique, highly personal way of looking at themselves, a departure from the radicalism of the Chicano Art Movement of the 60’s and 70’s.  This select group, Armando Baeza, CiCi Segura Gonzalez, Andres Montoya, Gil Ortiz, Retna (Marquis Lewis), and Eloy Torrez, have appeared in hundreds of gallery exhibitions and museum shows, sold countless pieces, and have been published in numerous catalogues and articles.  Given the depth of experience and ability, these artists represent a vibrant segment of local Los Angeleno’s art community.

Please join us for this opening reception on Saturday, August 2nd, 2008, 6 – 10 pm.
