Lawndale Art Center presents four exhibitions opening March 13, 6:30-8:30 p.m., with artist talks beginning at 6 p.m.

In the John M. O'Quinn Gallery, Adam Crosson, Jonas Hart and James Scheuren's works in the exhibition On Plasticity: Poetics of the Built counter the monumental aesthetics of the built environment as a means to extract from it the found and the felt .

Anthony Sonnenberg's With Wild Abandon tackles the topic of consumption and consumerism through media ranging from porcelain to performance.

For her exhibition Tongue-and-Groove in the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery, Erin Stafford creates a floor installation using vinyl parquet tiles.

In Jason Flowers' exhibition 8 Ohmns in the Project Space, eight cassette decks sing harmoniously with one another until a viewer approaches an individual deck, resulting in the decks falling out of tune with their peers.

These exhibitions will be on view through April 18.
