The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Josh Agle's new show, “Pink Elephants,” opens at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City this Saturday, November 23rd. The opening reception is from 7 pm to 10 pm, and, as always, it's free, open to the public, and usually a lot of fun.
An American artist, Agle is better known by the nickname Shag. Back in 2002, a New York Times article by Roberta Smith summed up Shag's appeal, saying "Ultimately, the eye is snared by Mr. Agle's economic use of saturated colors -- sharp greens and warm lavenders, smoldering reds, sour ochers -- and the tinted-gel space created by his thin-on-thin paint handling."
Corey Helford Gallery is located at 8522 Washington Blvd.
