Dale Grimshaw’s vibrant paintings were on full display last Friday when his new show opened at the Signal Gallery in London.

After spending all day scrambling to get your taxes out on time, swing by Brooklyn Brothers Gallery in the BK to celebrate Tax Day with the folks behind TrustoCorp (covered).

Shantytowns and the world of Disney, not a common pairing, but when put together, forms a powerful statement from the mind of Jeff Gillette. His show “Dismayland” opens tomorrow night, April 10th at Copro Gallery and will feature a body of work that melds the excess of pop culture today with what look to be the ghettos of tomorrow. The paintings often confront viewers with strong images such as familiar characters living in the slums, laying haphazardly almost half-dead or using the streets and open-air […]
Los Angeles based artist and master of wood figures, Amanda Visell, opens her solo show “Primeval Love” tonight, April 9th, at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.

With imagery that includes her twist on Greek mythology, wooly mammoths, dragons, castles and statues, the new body of work will fit in seamlessly in the museum setting. Take a look […]

As with Roa’s show in Paris, his paintings look to be on found items or well constructed objects with moving parts that allow a juxtaposition of multiple layers of overlaying painting surfaces. More images after the jump.
Tomorrow, April 9th, a trio of shows are scheduled to welcome Thinkspace Gallery to the Culver City art district (6009 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232).

Also, two group shows in […]
