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”.

Leslie Sacks Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of two new bodies of work by accomplished Los Angeles artist Alex Weinstein. Known for his immersive and entrancing paintings, Weinstein combines several past experiments with new explorations in methodology and themes resulting in a series of exciting new works. The Burst abstractions explore mark making and revisit a near-death experience the artist had while surfing. The Double Negative nocturnes combine previous compositional aspects of the diptych, but utilize a distinctly new color palette, stretching the horizon into infinite dusk.
Leslie Sacks Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles based artist, Alex Weinstein. Known for his immersive and enigmatic paintings, Weinstein combines both past and newfound approaches to produce his two latest series, Bursts and Double Negatives. The Burst paintings delve into the sensations of the artist’s near-death experience while surfing. The Double Negatives are contemporary nocturnes that revisit Weinstein’s use of the stacked diptych with a distinctly warmed palette across a horizontal tonal expanse.
Lynn Hanson’s work stems from a rapt attention and visceral connection to the natural world. The exhibition features new drawings and paintings by the artist.
The opening reception is Saturday, April 22, 5 - 7 pm @ Lora Schlesinger Gallery

In an age when technology is slowly replacing the tactile experience of reading a book, Ellen Cantor's work recalls and celebrates the joy of losing oneself within the pages of a favorite childhood tale.
Fifteen years ago, I wrote a job-wanted sign and hung it outside of a bathroom near Seattle’s Fisherman’s Terminal. It read: “Experienced deckhand looking for work on a commercial crab or halibut fishing boat in Alaska --- hard worker --- does not get seasick.” I was 24-years old, energetic and ambitious, with a few years of salmon fishing experience (but naive to the world of high seas fish-work). After a few shifty respondents, I was hired by a seasoned Norwegian fisherman and flew on a small prop plane, past the icy volcanoes and windswept passes of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, eventually slamming down onto the short runway in Dutch Harbor. The experience would forever change the direction of my life and shape my identity as both a fisherman and photographer.
Isolated from the mainland by some of the world's roughest waters, Dutch Harbor is a thriving, working-class commercial fishing port surrounded by steep mountains and lonely windswept valleys. It’s a place where industry and nature collide in strange and beautiful ways, a place where people harvest seafood on a massive scale, and share their meals and their refuse with local wildlife --- from rapacious bald eagles to curious foxes.
That first year I worked jigging for Codfish in the Bering Sea and continued to return for work as a crabber for the next seven seasons. What lured me back, though, wasn’t only the money but the curious and often masochistic realization of the American dream happening in the Aleutian Islands. Those who come here often possess a desire to escape the safety of home to work in an environment filled with risk and visual grandeur that is far from ordinary. In recent trips, I joined fisherman at sea aboard crabbers and trawlers, and on land, documenting the surreal landscape of fishing culture that once captured my imagination as a young greenhorn. Aleutian Dreams is a collection of images from my journey through this wild and unforgiving frontier of Western Alaska.
About the artist:
Corey Arnold is a fine art photographer based in Portland, Oregon. His work examines man’s relationship with the natural world including animals, food production, and environmental issues. Since 2002, he has photographed his life at sea working as a Bering Sea Crab fisherman and documented his summers captaining a sockeye salmon fishing boat in Alaska. In the off-season he continues to explore the world’s commercial fisheries in an ongoing project entitled Fish-Work.
His photographs have been exhibited worldwide and published in Harpers, The New Yorker, New York Times LENS, Art Ltd, Rolling Stone, Time, Outside, National Geographic, Mare and The Paris Review, among others. Corey has published two books of photography by Nazraeli Press including Fish-Work: The Bering Sea, and Fishing with My Dad.
“Outside The Box” brings together a group of artists who employ unexpected and compelling approaches to both traditional and contemporary media.
"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
The 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.

David Furman "Stories from Reality"
Drawing inspiration from common objects, David invites the viewer to have an individual experience with each item, bringing their own history of interaction and significance to items often viewed primarily for their utility.

Building Bridges Art Exchange (BBAX) presents Love Is Not Enough, a solo exhibition featuring the work of Rodolfo de Florencia.
In our culture, many of us idealize love. We see it as some crazy cure for all of life's problems. Our movies and our stories and our history all celebrate it as life's ultimate goal, the final solution for all of our pain and struggle. And because we idealize love, we overestimate it. As a result, our relationships pay a price.
In our Project Room: 10'000 Signatures, a solo Project featuring the work of Martynas Ivinskas.
