Danny Singer – Gallery Jones

Gallery Jones is pleased to announce the opening of 100th Meridian, an exhibition of new work by Danny Singer.

For the past decade, Danny Singer has been travelling and photographing habitations across the North American prairies and plains. His work exists as many things: a document of what is there, a subtly revealed history of lives lived, a testament to the ethic of progress that initiated these towns, and the modernization and urbanization that is draining them. All of these characteristics exist because of, and could not exist without, the aesthetic power of the object. Ranging in widths from seven feet to ten feet and heights from a foot-and-a-half to four, the photographs tell stories with themes as broad as the struggle of a human construction on an open plain to the parking habits of residents. Created from up to one hundred and fifty different photographs, there is a temporal element to Singer’s work that heightens the effectiveness of the storytelling. It is almost as if a screen door could swing open and close on the left of the frame before your eyes have a chance to make their way to the right. Exhibiting April 25 to May 23, 2015.

Karin Bubas – Monte Clark Gallery

Karin Bubas presents a selection of works from her Paper Forest series in this new solo exhibition.

This series of three-dimensional photographic works began when Bubas travelled around the Pacific Northwest, visiting the sights and experiencing the environment made famous by Emily Carr. In creating her own imagery of the forest, Bubas felt challenged to capture the rich and encompassing atmosphere. On exhibition until May 23, 2015. Read more

Tom Antil – Lon Michels Gallery – Palm Springs, CA

Palm Springs Cityscapes and Landscapes from Tom Antil on Exhibit-it.

Palm Springs Cityscapes and Landscapes” by impressionist painter, Tom Antil

On exhibition at the Lon Michels Gallery, Palm Springs from March 2 to 30th, 2015. The paintings of Tom Antil are colorful and a bit rough edged. They are painted on unsanded plywood. This adds a certain texture and roughness of it’s own. Tom attempts to make his portrayals of city scenes lively and upbeat. Thematically, he tries to portray cities as being an extension of nature, adding to the interest of the landscape rather than becoming a blight on it.

The lives of Gordon Smith, and his late wife Marion, were defined by art. Both his own rich and varied artistic practice in which Marion was always his first and most important critic but also by the great love of looking that they both shared. Over a long lifetime they have both collected and donated works of art by many other artists.  Their outlook was always that of visual explorers and Gordon remains that as he continues to collect today. …Read more
