Gallery Hours: Mon. - Thurs., 12 noon - 5 p.m.
Artists' reception (panel discussion): Wednesday, March

Liz Crimzon uses state-of-the-art computer techniques to create
"On Los Angeles: Falling Through the Cracks." These
digital interpretations are neither photographs nor paintings.

Peter Holden uses Abstract Expressionism to establish a new vocabulary
for perception. His paintings ask questions about both technique
and imagery.

James Nickell uses found objects and maritime references to create
his installation. "Just Add Water" questions preconceived
ideas of space, time and personal voyages in the psyche.

Isabel Martinez alternates between figuration and abstraction.
Her paintings, "Dogs Fighting," explore personal pain,
anger, and social and cultural tensions.

Martha Wilson's video, "Intervening Interludes," explores
the collaboration and interdependence that structure and propel
many kinds of human relationships.

Free to the public. Call Delilah Montoya, Fine Arts Gallery
Director, at (323) 343-4042.
