New Shows by Cheryl Pope and Kenichi Yokono Open At Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City This Saturday

A show of new mixed-media sculpture, photography, video, and installation by Chicago-based artist Cheryl Pope opens at Mark Moore Gallery this Saturday, June 28. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, is from 6 to 8 pm.

Phantasmagorical and raw in nature, Yokono’s work is rife with disturbingly ominous overtones and explicit imagery, steeped in both ukiyo-e painting traditions...

Mark Moore Gallery is located at 5790 Washington Blvd, 6-8pm
