‘Caution’ & ‘Paradejo de la Soledad’ @ Lois Lambert Gallery
(Through May 5th, 2018)   ‘Caution’ is consistent with Lois Lambert Gallery’s opening history. Much like Molding a Hard Rock, the artist Martiros Adalian takes a radical approach to stereotypical Western fine art portraitures, imbuing them with a sense of irreverence through the use of brightly colored textures and action with the irrational painted layers

‘Interior of the Yelling Clinic’ @ Walter Maciel Gallery
The Walter Maciel Gallery exhibited Katherine Sherwood’s Interior of the Yelling Clinic which was an ensemble of her earlier art series’.

Art Los Angeles Contemporary Review
Two weeks ago housed a terrific cornucopia of refined contemporary art. By refined, I connote the distillation of artistry through the filters of commercial fine art galleries. Commerce is often seen to be a necessary evil with its marriage to artistry. For worse, it can corrupt the aim of art, which is to imitate reality

‘Future Feminine’ @ The Fahey/Klein Gallery
Future Feminine Art Review @ The Fahey/Klein Gallery   The Fahey/Klein Gallery had a massive art party Saturday night which no doubt was assuaged by the conjointly held “Women’s March” the same day.

‘Molding a Hard Rock’ @ Lois Lambert Gallery
Rodrigo Branco held an opening titled Molding A Hard Rock at Lois Lambert Gallery.

‘Her Paris’ @ Denver Art Museum
(Through January 18th)   The Denver Art Museum has an exhibition titled Her Paris which showcases female French Impressionists. The most rewarding aspect of the exhibition was in the discernible insight that the women bring to the Fine Arts compared to their male Impressionist counterparts. When proclaiming that the women had strong interest in depicting

‘Mourning Wood in Liminal Dawn’ by Christian Rex van Minnen @ Richard Heller Gallery
(Through December 23rd)   Plato was generally anti-artistic for the reason the arts, while rendering reality in an aesthetic manner, can distort it in such a way that its misrepresentation is duplicitous, merely serving the ends of the artist’s wishful ambitions for how reality appears as and not buttressing the affirmation of the human condition.

(Through January 14th, 2018)   While the Bakersfield Museum of Art is very small, it has ample space and the intrepidness to showcase to the small Central Valley community contemporary art contra what the general population presumes art to be. It’s understandable why the laymen have umbrage towards contemporary art. Their displeasure is woven with
