Cal State L.A. Hosts 1996 Winter Graduate Exhibition

What & Who:
California State University, Los Angeles Fine Arts Gallery features an art exhibit by CSLA's Master of Fine Arts graduate students Liz Crimzon, Peter Holden, James Nickell, Isabel Martinez, and Martha Wilson. Each artist uses either found objects or established art styles to question existing tensions and boundaries within contemporary culture.

When:
March 4 - March 14, 1996.
Gallery Hours: Mon. - Thurs., 12 noon - 5 p.m.
Artists' reception (panel discussion): Wednesday, March 6, 4- 6 p.m.

Where:
Cal State L.A. Fine Arts Gallery, Fine Arts Building. The University is located at the Eastern Avenue exit, San Bernardino (I-10) Fwy., at the interchange of 10 and 710 Fwys.

More:
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.
