Lawndale Art Center opening reception: Drive, After Landscapes, Pulse and at dawn and dusk
Lawndale Art Center presents four exhibitions. In the group exhibition Drive in the John M. O'Quinn Gallery, Joshua Fischer and Katia Zavistovski explore the various roles that freeways and driving culture have played in our human experience and perceptions of the city.
In the Cecily E. Horton Gallery, After Landscapes is a collection of altered photographs about the ragged prairies that border the highways and railroad tracks in Regan Golden-McNerney's hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota.
In the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery, Margaet Smithers-Crump's installations, titled Pulse, explore the three dimensional use of Plexiglas and transforming the gallery into a glass-like world composed of translucent forms and light.
In the Project Space, Mari Omori's two room installation, at dawn and dusk, explores notions of the artist's memory and identity as a Japanese-American artist.
These exhibitions will be on view through Jan. 10, 2015.
