July 8, 2017: George Billis Gallery, "The Cityscape Show VII"

George Billis Gallery is pleased to present  a group show of works by gallery artists and invited guest artists. The reception takes place on Saturday, July 9 from 5-8pm. The Cityscape Show VII is the gallery's seventh exhibition of its kind. The show is a visual exploration of the environs we inhabit. Los Angeles is a unique city in many regards - in its architecture, geography, and natural environment. 
Bruce Everett, Santa Clara River-Bend, 2017, oil on canvas, 35 x 50 inches; Mary-Austin Klein, Dreaming of Flight, 2 FWY, 2017, Oil on Dura-Lar, mounted on board, 12 x 12 inches; Patricia Chidlaw, Golden Nugget, Las Vegas, oil on linen, 28 x 20 inches

Spanning a space that includes mountains, ocean, and desert, Los Angeles and Southern California are a source of immense inspiration to many artists. This exhibition brings together a group of artists whose individual works together show a multifaceted and fascinating city. These pieces illustrate the ever-changing urban landscape. From the downtown skyscrapers and iconic landmarks to the graffiti-ed back alleys and vast freeway networks, from the bright lights of the Hollywood Hills and clean lines of mid-century modern architecture to the train bridges and gritty rail yards, Southern California is striking in all its extremes.
