Hours: Studio & Showroom open Tues-Sat while artist is working, or by appointment.
A fully working and active Fine Art Studio, Goldhammer paints a convergence of color and emotion and seeks to build and layer organically as the painting allows it to happen. There is no analyzing, conceptualizing or judging that takes place. It all happens in the moment as a union between her, the canvas and the paint.

How much do you earn? Who do you serve? The new world economics is built on inequality that threatens us all.
This remarkable new work from one of Sweden’s most celebrated novelists and playwrights takes on this issue in highly personal terms: a young man from an immigrant background trying to find his first job; a professor of economics desperately trying to hold onto the one he has; his wife, who nurses fantasies of an ecologically responsible life in the country; a homeless hustler who might be more than he seems; and a young woman who, in the cut-throat world of her office, may or may not be responsible for the death of a rival co-worker. Think economics is strictly for academics?
This play, with its unforgettable moments of funny and brutal honesty about the human cost of a rigged system, will make you think again.

iverrun - Photographs of the LA River
“Riverrun” is a suite of photographs capturing seldom seen images of the fifty-one mile storm drain that is still flatteringly called the Los Angeles River. Forsaken for so long and fenced off from the very communities it once sustained, the river is now primarily a flood control channel and conduit for urban waste.
Taking ‘less-picturesque’ portions of the river as his subject, Carofano’s carefully framed images reveal the not-so-hidden majesty of the concrete, the smooth lines of the river’s channel. Sophisticated geometry, atmospheric light and color, and rightness of scale give these images a painterly quality that requires close observation in order to determine that they are indeed photographs. Conditions that could be considered appalling, on the contrary, appear alluring and serene – each image pays homage to the intersection between nature and the designed environment.

Reception June 17, 5-8 PM
Suite E2, Tuesday - Saturday 11 - 6 PM
Latin American Masters' 30th Anniversary Exhibition includes superb examples of Latin American Art drawn from client collections. Among the exhibition's highlights are paintings by Rufino Tamayo, Francisco Toledo and Gunther Gerzso. The gallery is proud to have worked directly with all three of these important Mexican artists.
Wifredo Lam and Roberto Matta made important contributions to both Surrealism and subsequent art movements of the 1940's and 50's. Latin American Masters has organized solo exhibitions for both artists; their work will also be included in the 30th Anniversary Exhibition.
Fernando de Szyszlo, one of Latin America's most important living artists, was featured in the 2016 exhibition, Plural Modernities, at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Latin American Masters is honored to include Szyszlo in the 30th Anniversary Exhibition.
Olga de Amaral, Julio Larraz, Ricardo Martinez, Roberto Matta, Carlos Merida, Armando Morales and Diego Rivera are among the other important artists included in the exhibition.
The Getty Foundation's, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative on Latin American Art, begins in September with five months of exhibitions throughout Southland museum and galleries. Latin American Masters' 30th Anniversary Exhibition can be viewed as a prelude to Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and is a timely reminder of Latin America's rich and varied contributions to world culture.
A special thanks to our generous collectors for making this exhibition possible, and to those who have been clients of ours throughout the years. We greatly appreciate and share your passion and love for Latin American Art.

THE ARTS MUST GO ON
Jun 21 - Aug 16
Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to announce The Arts Must Go On, a group exhibition benefitting the Frostig Collection, running from June 21st-August 16th. This exhibition will also mark the final show for the gallery in this space - after two years at Bergamot Station, Laura Korman will be closing her gallery storefront to pursue new paths.
Fully devoted to continuing her active role in the arts, Korman will maintain an online presence for the gallery, work as a consultant for private clients, and act as a counselor for students interested in pursuing careers in the arts. Due to the continued success of the gallery’s representation of Washington DC-based artist Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Korman will be working in collaboration with Lia Skidmore of Skidmore Contemporary Art to maintain Tzu-Lan Mann’s presence at Bergamot Station.
The Arts Must Go On, is guest curated by Kate Stern of the Frostig Collection. The show will feature works by Larry Bell, Ed Moses, Charles Arnoldi, Alison Saar, Eric Johnson, Gary Baseman, David Buckingham, Kenton Nelson, Mike Stilkey, Ray Turner, Michael Kalish, and Brad Howe.
Conceived by Celia and Chris Piazza, The Frostig Collection launched an unprecedented concept - an ongoing series of works created by well-known California artists to benefit programs that aid children with learning disabilities, Asperger’s and High-Functioning Autism. Proceeds support the renowned Frostig Center’s Social Skills Program in Pasadena, CA. Frostig is recognized throughout the world as a leader in both research and education of students with learning disabilities.
With this exhibition, Laura Korman continues her family’s tradition of fundraising for the Frostig Center, as her late father Harvey Korman did before her. A comedy icon, Korman’s father remains a huge influence on his daughter, both professionally and personally. As a nod to the senior Korman, the title of this exhibition is a play on the Hollywood phrase, “the show must go on”, and perfectly sums up Laura’s determination to keep the arts alive and thriving in our city. As a native Angeleno raised in a creative environment, Laura understands the invaluable role that artists play in cultivating a vibrant society.

Opening reception Saturday, June 3rd, 6-9pm
Lois Lambert Gallery presents Susan Connell’s “Gestures”, a series of oil stick and oil pastel drawings on paper. In this series of drawings Susan examines and illustrates the connection between the gesture of a hand and the unconscious mind.
Connell’s fascination with the Jungian theory of the collective unconscious serves as an underpinning for her work. By focusing her drawings on hands, the slightest curve of a finger or suggestion of a touch, Susan portrays the core of humanity— both tragic and hopeful. Hands act as powerful symbols for ideas like protection or care. Looking at Susan’s body of work one sees image-after-image of a hand shielding, nurturing, or helping another figure. “I feel soullessness and "mean spirit" has seeped into our culture. I hope my work encourages people to feel and care for others again”.
Connell's minimal use of line and color is a testament to how little information one needs in order to communicate. Connell can draw a simple white slender figure standing alone on the palm of an oversized hand eliciting feelings of both hope and melancholy. The viewer is able to connect to Susan’s imagery through a universal understanding of the gestures that she draws.
Connell's process is intuitive and her composition often reveals itself as the work progresses. “I believe the creative process is the most important thing of all…colors change, designs morph but the core of my idea remains the same”.
Susan Connell is a graduate of Colorado Women’s College. She received her Master’s degree from Claremont Graduate School where she studied under Phil Dike and Paul Darrow. Susan’s paintings and drawings have been shown in galleries, and universities throughout Southern California including Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She has been a student of artist Tom Wudl for the last 20 years.
Lora Schlesinger Gallery is proud to present Embedded, a new series of paintings by Laura Karetzky. The show is her fifth solo exhibition at Lora Schlesinger Gallery. The exhibition will open with an artist’s reception Saturday, June 3rd from 5 – 7 pm.
Laura Karetzky’s Embedded examines how we communicate in the digital age. Through the use of multiple layers of transparent paint and obsessive mark-making Karetzky recreates cyber exchanges, inviting the viewer to reconsider perspective and the way information travels via text message, Face Time, or social media. Through the screen, she finds herself placed behind her interlocutor’s eyes, seeing herself looking at him, looking back. The paintings comprise a visual diary that surveys the space between human relationships as they strive to stay connected over all kinds of distances. Starting with captured images from real exchanges on her iPhone, she looks for a convergence of intersections between disparate narratives as they embed themselves in one another digitally, creating new conversations. The limited color palette abstracts the dialog between two separate images, stitching together information, and accentuating the impressions of shapes so that what one sees is both familiar and strange. The paintings are self referential, chronical is reversed, and the medium returns to the historic or hand-made.
Laura Karetzky’s work has been displayed at Arte Laguna in Venice, Italy and at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. She is a recipient of two Yaddo Colony Artist Residency fellowships, The Martin and Lorraine Kaminsky Residency at Mana Contemporary, and a Rotunda Gallery/BCAT Artist Residency. Karetzky has received awards of distinction from the Silvermine Guild, in New Canaan CT, The Eric Fischl award of distinction from the New York Academy of Art, and The Milton and Sally Michel Avery Endowed Residency for Visual Arts at Yaddo. Her education includes: degrees from Carnegie-Mellon University (BFA) and the New York Academy of Figurative Art (MFA), and training from the School of Visual Arts, The New York Studio School, Rhode Island School of Design, and extensive study in Florence Italy.

On view at ROSEGALLERY from 25 February until 22 April, Not From Here presents new works by Los Angeles-based artists Manfred Müller and Shaun McCracken. This is Manfred Müller’s fourth and Shaun McCracken’s first exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition opens on February 25th with a reception for the artists from 6 until 8 pm.
Not From Here features new works by Müller and McCracken, two artists who originate from Europe and currently live and work in Los Angeles. Born in Northern Ireland, McCracken left his home in the early 1980s to study Fine Art at St. Martins College and Goldsmith University in London. His arrival in London marked the start of a transformative period in his artistic development, opening up new horizons and possibilities. From 1976 to 1981 Müller studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, bringing his background as a technical draftsman to his architectural sculptures. Müller, influenced by his professor Erwin Heerich’sminimalist architectural sculptures and Joseph Beuys’ revolutionary use of materials, merged his environment with his work, creating pieces that engaged their surroundings through construction and installation, with a deep understanding of space and tactility.
Manfred and McCracken create abstracted spaces, dimensional and layered. McCracken’s vibrant egg tempera paintings and watercolors, have all been completed over the past two years. Without prior planning or drawing, McCracken creates geometric, hard-edged paintings. Utilizing layered color blocks and lines, the evolution of the painting reveals itself, creating an individualized history within each work. Müller uses folding, contrasts and creases in paper to address the notion of one’s experience with their constructed surroundings. The architectural sculptures engage and reconfigure space with a conscious effort to emulate the aesthetic principles of constructivism. Through the voids and fills, colored spaces and visual history, the two artists reflect theworld surrounding them without ever directly referencing it visually.
Both artists inhabit dual identities — Müller, German-American, and McCracken, from NorthernIreland and currently living in the United States — yet the two artists do not merely workbetween these identities and spaces, but rather broaden their work through their breadth of environments and influences. Their movements throughout this world follow a similar pattern to the movement of the eye through Müller’s architectural sculpture, open-ended yet methodical and the movement of McCracken’s lines across the canvas, continually spreading yet guided.
Phillip Griswold Fiat Lux
October 22 - November 26, 2016
For this exhibition, Phillip Griswold continues his focus of fracturing images of the urban landscape to articulate the complex make-up of our surroundings. Originating in photographs and sketches made out in the field, Griswold paints landscapes abstracted into spaces that contain softly articulated, brushy forms intersected with bold geometry.
Rather than developing a sense for a specific place, Griswold uses the landscape as a way to explore the structure and effect of light. While there is a definite spatial quality to the work and a discernible horizon, he gently diffuses recognizable elements with planar interventions. He structures the paintings in a manner that creates dynamic formal tensions, but allowing the two forces to work in tandem, as if they occur naturally together.
This new body of work moves further yet from the representational nature of his older work, where lozenge forms, planes and cubes jostle within the landscapes, always focusing on light and spatial interplay. In one piece, a scene that references a streetscape that simultaneously alludes to strong movement while keeping a highly structured composition. In another piece, an array of variously colored, ordered planes fractures an otherwise moody clouded sky. In these and the rest of the paintings in the exhibition, the varied compositions always bring focus back to light – its architecture and the way it arcs and refracts in and out and between paintings.
Phillip Griswold received his MFA From Claremont Graduate University and lives and works in the Los Angeles area.
Jennifer Faist - Friends, Acquaintances, and Strangers
October 22 - November 26, 2016
Over the course of her career, Jennifer Faist has created artwork by bringing together two unlikely companions: fabric and high-gloss formalism. At first glance the work aligns with a version of the slick Finish Fettish works of the past, but Faist's meticulously crafted work merges pure materiality with personal resonance. As in previous series, Faist appropriates patterns from clothing with which she has personal associations. In this current body of work, she used apparel from friends and acquaintances, rather than material that she had collected over several years.
To create the vibrant, sculptural pieces, Faist draws her chosen textile design in fine detail and gradually envelopes the original form beneath layers of colored acrylic glazes. Each painting, suspended in resin on thick wood supports, becomes a relic of her encounters with other people. The perfectly smooth, reflective paintings draw viewers into their vibrant, shimmering depths, making onlookers a part of the material and emotive journey that the pieces reveal.
“The patterns in my latest grouping of paintings come from textile designs from the apparel of friends and acquaintances or other people I meet. They encompass a spectrum of social relationships from fleeting exchanges to everyday encounters. The relationships can be close or distant, but yet there is always a thread that weaves between one person and another, creating the fabric of our social networks. The paintings serve as mementos, little fragments of intimacy, something to remember them by.”
Jennifer Faist received her MFA from Claremont Graduate University. She lives and works in Los Angeles.

Sabrina Gschwandtner: Hands at Work
June 03 – July 29, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 03, 2017, 5-7pm
Shoshana Wayne Gallery is pleased to present Hands at Work by Sabrina Gschwandtner. This is the Los Angeles-based artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will be on view June 3rd through July 29th, 2017, with an opening reception on Saturday June 3rd from 5-7pm.
Hands at Work is a study of hands, craft, and montage, composed of eleven quilts constructed from 16 mm film presented in light boxes, and a large-scale video. The film footage comes from a collection of 16 mm educational films that were de-accessioned from the Fashion Institute of Technology and given to Gschwandtner by Anthology Film Archives. Since 2009, when she first began cutting and sewing them into configurations based on popular American quilt motifs, these films have served as rich source material for the artist. The films describe the making of textiles for cultural, political and daily uses.
Building on her previous exhibition, Film Quilts (2015), Gschwandtner continues to explore possibilities precipitated by the demise of celluloid and the proliferation of the digital moving image. As Gschwandtner’s work traces the transition from analog to digital technologies, it explores tactility, the relationship between still and moving images, and the often opposing spheres of craft and concept in art.
For this exhibition, Gschwandtner has selected footage of hands at work—weaving, knitting, sewing, dyeing cloth, tying string, spinning yarn, and feeding fabric into machines. The artist’s decision to focus on hands, the way they move, perform their craft, and enact their labor, underscores the action of handcraft as both physical and metaphorical. There are pairs of works, signifying left and right hands laboring, and the making and unmaking of meaning. Gschwandtner’s work emphasizes undervalued female labor, paying homage to the historical lineage of female film editors who stitched together movies.
While Gschwandtner’s film quilts present photography as a physical, three-dimensional site, the artist’s video connects women’s work and formal histories of abstraction with digital technology. For this piece, Gschwandtner transferred film footage to video and edited laboring hands, film leader and film credits into 35 layers that form a triangle quilt in motion. Displayed on an Ultra-high-definition monitor, the piece ruminates on the roles of materiality and tactility in a technologically mediated future.
Sabrina Gschwandtner has exhibited widely in the United States as well as internationally at institutions including the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC; the Museum of Arts and Design in New York; and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Her film quilts are currently on view in permanent collection exhibitions at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the RISD Museum, and the Mint Museum. Gschwandtner’s work is also included in the permanent collections of the MFA Boston and the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation, among many other public and private collections worldwide. Gschwandtner received a BA from Brown University and an MFA from Bard College.

The artist wishes to thank director Pat Ferrero for use of footage from her films "Quilts in Women's Lives " (1980) and "Hearts and Hands" (1987). The films are in active distribution and are available from New Day Films.

ED MOSES: Chance and Circumstance
March 25 - May 27, 2017
"The rational mind constantly wants to be in charge. The other parts want to fly. My painting is the encounter between the mind's necessity for control and its yearning to fly, to be free from our ever-confining skull." - Ed Moses
Santa Monica, CA - William Turner Gallery is pleased to present, Ed Moses: Chance and Circumstance, an exhibition featuring new works by the prolific Los Angeles-based painter. Ed Moses’s painterly process is one of inexhaustible experimentation. A self-described “mutator” and compulsive creator, he is still producing work at a staggering pace, undeterred by his 91st birthday upcoming in April. The artist has experienced a period of revitalized productivity, following the exceptional success of his recent survey exhibition Moses@90, and has been creating some of his most inventive and challenging works to date. As part of an unprecedented exhibition cycle presenting Moses’s second major project with the gallery in two consecutive years, Chance and Circumstance will include new, never-before-seen paintings alongside a selection of earlier works.
Among the new bodies of work included in the exhibition are recent iterations of Moses’s dynamic grid paintings. These have never implied static formal stability for Moses but rather frameworks in flux. Delineated by thick bands of black, white, and gray, the grids are punctuated by splatters and drips of vibrant, sometimes neon, colors. In Moses’s hands, this typically rigid geometric formation is transformed - lines are fractured, often ending abruptly, and colored bands vary in transparency and weight, allowing the superimposition of marks to emerge and recede for a deeper sense of dimensional space. The more gestural abstract motif of Moses’s “worm” paintings reappears in this exhibition as well. These curvilinear, tunnel-like passages seem to undulate and carve out pictorial space from within, conveying the unmistakable feeling of spontaneity so integral to Moses’s work.
The phrase “chance and circumstance” has become something of a mantra for Moses. A student of Buddhism, he has made a career of fearlessly blazing down the path of the unknown. A practice of daily meditation keeps Moses anchored in the present, a lifestyle choice and sensibility, which is evident in his paintings. Driven by the metaphysical power of painting and its potential to transform, Moses bypasses the need to be in control and favors the idea of being in tune with the pieces he is coaxing into existence. Moses has stated, “My paintings are on an endless path” - each work leads to another in a sort of perpetual evolution. Art historian Barbara Haskell has remarked of Moses that this relinquishing of control “allows him to step outside himself, letting his materials direct his hand without conscious interferences.”
A member of the original stable of artists showing at LA's legendary Ferus Gallery, Moses exhibited there for the first time while still an MFA student at UCLA in 1958. Exhibiting among the fabled "Cool School," Moses was among those who shaped the infancy of the West Coast art scene. Never has an appreciation and appetite for LA’s art history, or its living legends, been more keen than now. Recently included in the newly minted series Artists Talk: LA Legends presented by The Broad Stage and Sotheby’s Institute of Art Los Angeles, Moses took the stage in January with Cool School Alums Larry Bell, Billy Al Bengston and Ed Ruscha to regale the audience with their living histories. A maverick among them, given his preference for process driven abstraction over any strict adherence to the Finish Fetish and Light and Space movements, championed at the time, Moses has always done things a bit differently.
