In Culver City…

Bruce Lurie presents the art of LouiseFri-Sept19-BruceLurie-LouiseMarler Marler. Enjoy an opening reception for the artist from 6-8pm tonight.

Is it a coincidence that Marler created new “camERA” art series and the “Famous TypOwriters” art is of machines that are owned by Steve Soboroff? Yes, well maybe. Her TypOwriter series has lead to the recent works of art being Orson Welles’ typewriter and Ray Bradbury’s typewriter. The LA Police Body Cams just implemented are a Relevant Coincidence to her art of Vintage Cameras and Typewriters, which are the creative, analog, tools of previous centuries. Both were primary tools of Journalists and Communicators of all sorts. Smart phones and the Internet have replaced both. (The camera collection art was created entirely separate of Mr. Soboroff’s LA Police Commission roll.)
