The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is pleased to present three exhibitions that investigate the way artists in various genres interpret and observe nature.
Un-Natural explores the work of four very different contemporary artists—Lisa Adams, Fatemeh Burnes, Merion Estes and Constance Mallinson—who use the world around us to foster a sense of place, explore natural phenomena and its energetic connection to modern life, and push the boundaries and definition of landscape and its representation.
Saving Paradise: The Symbiosis of Landscape Painting and Environmental Awareness is a group exhibition from the California Art Club juried by Jean Stern, Director of The Irvine Museum.
In the Project Room gallery, Hybrid Romance by Los Angeles artist Lawrence T. Yun presents his latest watercolor series.
