Layla Luna: I Saw Noboday Coming, So I Went Instead

Lawndale Art Center

November 17 - January 7, 2018

"With the mixed media works of I Saw Nobody Coming, So I Went Instead, Layla Luna explores personal histories through personal collections. Building her own collections to document time and create stories in a pro-active manner Luna questions our reasoning for holding on to objects and creating our own collections and displays of those items; is it the object its self or the haunt of the memory tied to the object?"

Meredith Butch Jack: Playing in the Sandbox Too

Lawndale Art Center

November 17 - January 7, 2018

"In his site-specific installations, Meredith "Butch" Jack constructs structural and sculptural vignettes from common materials. Playing in the Sandbox Too highlights the alternate use of those daily materials towards the same concerns of his more commercial works: small mysteries; personal loss; physical tension, imbalance, or peril; and mortality."

Lynn Randolph: Between Worlds

Lawndale Art Center

October 6 - January 21, 2018

"Between Worlds responds to Lynn Randolph's ongoing work with palliative care patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Comprised of approximately twenty drawings, these painstakingly rendered works deftly combine elements of the weird and scientific with acute psychological and metaphoric realism and builds bridges to the spiritual." The show is curated by Susie Kalil.
