This Saturday, LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles will open Joshua Petker's newest body of work, Adrift. In a departure from his layered, textural, neon portrait paintings combining portrait and abstract styles, Petker's new exhibition features more conceptual, "nautical themed works as well as a companion series of portraits – still recognizable as the same artist but distinctively different paintings."

Mark Moore Gallery describes Allison Schulnik's paintings as "distinctively textured," which may be a slight understatement. Schulnik's painted outcasts, mermaids, losers and nudes are more stuff than substance, their insides oozing out and dripping all over like a melting ice cream cone. Yet even through the heavily slathered paint the dark psychology of her lovable characters shine through. Her current show 'Salty Air' is on view until July 7, 2012.

Noah Doely's ambrotype and tintype photographs are full fiction and illusion. Harkening back to a time at the emergence of photography, Doely presents characters that are in a pursuit of knowledge, making, and understanding, a search that belongs just as much to the artist as it does to these fictional personalities. His exhibition, The Expanse of the Fact, opens tonight, June 1, at Steve Turner Contemporary in Los Angeles.

A delayed mural ordinance is creating confusion and frustration amongst artists, and building owners in Los Angeles. A recent wall painted by Zes, Push, Chris Brand, and Evan Skrederstu was painted over to serve as a backdrop for a production company, while another wall painted by Sand, Vyal, and Cope2 was buffed out by orders of the LAPD saying it was illegal to have a mural or graffiti piece on their property.
