The arts are alive and well in Los Feliz, as new exhibitions come to the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at the Barnsdall Art Park, which you’ll find at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard.
MANFRED MÜLLER: OBJECTS ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR showcases recent works by German artist Manfred Müller who now resides in Los Angeles. You’ll marvel at a wide-range of wall and floor-bound sculptures, site-specific installations, prints, drawings, and photo-based works which merges two usually contrasting themes - the abstract and social consciousness. Müller will speak about his art at the gallery on Friday, February 28th at 7pm.
This exhibit features Muller's recent works which explores human knowledge as a topic and the healing power of art. The exhibit is guest Curated by Claudia Bohn-Spector.
Meanwhile, you can also view the F. SCOTT HESS: RETROSPECTIVE. Spanning five decades of Hess’ paintings, the retrospective touches on topics like sex and human frailties. Hess, an Echo Park resident, will speak about his work on Friday, March 7th, at 7pm.
Trained in Vienna but American born, artist F. Scott Hess is one of today's most technically accomplished artists working with the human form. He is often discribed as a "New Old Master", some of his paintings are reminiscent of sauch painters as Diego Valazquez and Jean-Antoine Watteau.
These two art exhibitions run February 2nd thru March 16th. Visit Barnsdall.org for more info.
