The William Turner Gallery is pleased to present J Street, a series of new works by Greg Miller. Following a recent move to New York, history and how we make it, has been weighing on Miller’s mind. J Street, named for the main drag in Miller’s hometown of Sacramento, CA, is a collection of paintings that explores the ways in which we carry, preserve and experience our collective and individual histories.

Sat-Oct3-WiliamTurnerMiller’s work synthesizes a number of elements both contemporary and age-old. Critic Peter Frank remarks, “Greg Miller brings the pictorial poise of Pop to the eloquent fury of street art, effecting a marriage – or at least a torrid affair – between two hot items. One item is hot today, the other has been hot for a half century, but in Miller’s hands there is no generation gap, only a spiritual union – one that generates a sky, or at least a wall full of sparks.” With this series in particular, Miller’s practice reaches even further back in time – to the cave paintings of early man. This is a territory he explores by addressing our primal urge to make marks – the human need to declare to posterity “I was here!” Collaged elements project off of the surfaces – Miller has left some of the paintings resin-free, raw and exposed like cave walls or city streets, making the artist’s ritual of creating more tangible and tantalizing.

bG Gallery presents ECO a new series of paintings by Susan Moss. In this new body of work, Susan Moss offers a vibrant, energetic response to environmental and social issues. The emotionally charged yet lyrical paintings attest to her strength, precise control of color and depth, and her maverick originality.

A Sat-Oct3-bgGallery-susanMossflyerlong term breast cancer survivor, Moss is a strong advocate for women’s issues, health, and healing through her work. A series of health and life obstacles have stood in Moss’s path, only to be overcome with a new series of work. She began experimenting with spray paint in the 70’s creating large color-field works that gained her a reputation and collector base. Severe respiratory issues resulting from the spray led her to a new series using acrylic binding. The Black Forrest series, in memory to her grandparents who perished in concentration camps during WWII, was rescued from 3 studio fires. By far the biggest obstacle was cancer, which the artist incredibly fought without the use of modern medicine. She has now emerged with new works using non toxic paints including mediums of her own invention, giving the work a unique organic texture.

TAG Gallery offers new exhibitions featuring artists Fielden Harper, Della Rollé, & Donn Delson.

Sat-Oct3-TAG-Fielden-Harper-AndtheBeat-Goes-OnSee image: Fielden Harper, And the Beat Goes On, Oil on Canvas, 36 x 30 in.

In her most recent body of work, artist Fielden Harper explores the concepts of renewal and growth, both personally and environmentally. As we experience our most severe drought to date, Southern California residents have begun to see a change in the landscape they once knew. Although transformed by the new conditions, Harper’s work symbolizes the continued beauty that can be found in adapting to our changing surroundings, reminding us that every challenge we encounter is an opportunity for growth.

The sculptures in Della Rollé’s current exhibition, Surfaces, represent her continued experimentation with modern techniques and interlaces them with traditional bronzes.

Donn Delson’s exhibition is a visual study of stillness and motion in Death Valley and the Mojave Desert.

There will be an artist talk on Saturday, October 17th, at 3pm.

“PlSat-Oct3-Wallspaceaces Snake Plissken Escaped from” is an homage to iconic buildings from New York City and Los Angeles, drawn with simple lines but imbued with bright color and nostalgia. “The pieces are based on my visual memory, mostly through movies, of the cities I loved before living in them myself. My goal was to create fun, simple, peaceful images that the viewer can relate to and allow them to connect to in their own personal way – either through their own memories of living in the cities, or through movies or images from books or photos,” says artist Marz Jr.
