In L.A.: Mark Whalen @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 10, 2014
This past weekend we stopped by Merry Karnowsky Gallery for the opening of Mark Whalen’s latest exhibition “Stranded.” From his beginnings in Sydney Australia, Mark Whalen has evolved into an artist whose meticulously crafted paintings and sculptures examine the human experience by exploring invention, communication, emotion, sexuality, interaction and ritual – all with an undercurrent of quiet absurdity. Photos and more after the jump.

In L.A.: POP-EYECONIC GROUP SHOW AT CHG

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 21, 2014
This past weekend we stopped by Corey Helford Gallery for the opening reception of their latest group exhibit “Pop-Eyeconic.” Looking to explore the iconic characters who define popular artistic symbolism, we have asked an ambitious and diverse group of artists - from street to surreal to New Classicist - to provide one new work each, featuring their choice of POP ICONS that have special meaning to them, but rendering the icons in each artist’s own particular style and placing them in situations relevant to that artist’s usual subject matter. 

IN L.A.: Cleon Peterson @ New Image Art

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 10, 2014
Cleon Peterson, who we have been huge fans of for years (and recently contributed a surfboard to our UNIV x Chandran Gallery x Juxtapoz fundraiser for Waves For Water), just opened a fantastic show at New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles a few weekends back. We checked it out, and through the throngs of friends and followers, enjoyed the packed house. 

In L.A.: Victor Castillo, Mauricio Garrido & Claudia Pena @ Merry Karnowsky, LA

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 14, 2014
A few weeks back, while the Juxtapoz team was in Los Angeles for the LA Art Book Fair, we stopped by the opening of Victor Castillo's newest work, "Pure Pleasure," along with Mauricio Garrido and Claudia Pena at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Castillo once again was in top form, not only with a few paintings in the front of the gallery, but his dynamic black and white serigraph pieces were showstoppers unto themselves, along with a beautiful mural in the back of the gallery.

IN L.A.: The Seventh Letter Flagship Store Opening

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 16, 2013
The Seventh Letter’s flagship store and gallery opened last week, we stopped by the grand opening and it was quite the event. As you may know from our past with the Seventh Letter crew and brand, we had an entire issue dedicated to them in July 2007, and have extensively covered exhibitions at Known Gallery in LA over the years. That said, this store is long, long overdue, and we are so happy they got the flagship up and running!!! Hope you enjoy the photos.

In LA: Travis Louie "STRANGE DISCOVERIES" @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 15, 2013
This past weekend, we visited the opening of Travis Louie's newest solo show, Strange Discoveries, at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We are going to give it to you straight. You Louie's work on the web, as many of us do, and you think, "That has to be digital." On the contrary, you see Louie's work in person, and you can't believe all the works are created by hand, by a very gifted, imaginative artist who has created his own universe of characters... beautiful, inspiring work. Go see it. 

In LA: Eric White "All Of This Has Not Occurred" @ Martha Otero, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 13, 2013
If you have received your copy of the December 2013 issue (and if you subscribe now you can get that issue for free), then you know we had a grand feature on NYC-based Eric White, written by Carlo McCormick. And if you saw that piece, you know that we were printing it in conjunction with White's solo show, "All of This Has Not Occurred," that opened at Martha Otero Gallery in LA this past weekend. We plan these things.
