The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
More than 11 galleries throughout the Culver City Arts District will host show openings this Saturday, January 11, marking 2014's first Culver CIty Art Walk. Generally, the openings run from about 6 pm to about 9 pm., and they're all free and open to the public. It's a great opportunity to see some contemporary art -- and quite the scene.
The work above, Sub(version #2) is part of Marin Durazo's show opening at Luis De Jesus Gallery at 2685 S. LaCienega Blvd. The show features distorted images of social gatherings, which, the gallery suggests, "capture crime scenes of lingering memories."
A solo exhibition of new abstracts and sculptures by Michael Chearney will open at George BIllis Gallery at 2716 South La Cienega Blvd. Here's an example of Chearney's explosive work:
The ultra-prestigious Blum & Poe Gallery will feature an opening of works by Nobuo Sekine as well as sculptures by Gavin Kenyon. Says the gallery, "Comprised of plaster, fabric, and pigment, Kenyon's recent sculptures are gorgeously stained, physically heavy, viscerally primitive, and humbly perverse." Here's an example of Gavin Kenyon's new work:
