Open Show at L.A.A.A.’s Gallery 825
The Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) is a non-profit organization that supports Southern California artists. LAAA’s mission is to provide opportunities, resources, services and exhibition venues for artists living in Southern California, with an emphasis on emerging talent. Founded in 1925, LAAA has launched the art careers of many celebrated artists and has played a central role in the formation of Los Angeles’ arts community.
Gallery 825 on La Cienega Boulevard is LAAA’s exhibition arm for contemporary art. Purchased in 1958, the gallery provides LAAA artists with a professional venue in which to show their work. There are four individual gallery spaces within the main building, which allows the gallery to host four individual programs simultaneously. The largest gallery, the North Gallery, hosts juried group shows, while the smaller galleries (South, Center and Wurdemann) feature solo artist exhibitions.
The Open Show, one of the two annual shows available to all Southern Californian artists, occurs every December and has developed into one of the most potent survey exhibitions of emerging art. The 2014 Open Show debuts at Gallery 825 on Saturday December 13th and runs through January 16th, 2015.
This year the jury is composed by: Susan Cross, Curator, MASS MoCA and the featured artists are: Anna Agoston, Collin Avery, Jana Cruder, David D’Andrade, Rachelle Dang, Ewa Gavrielov, Michael Harnish, Alexander Hill, Flora Kao, Yoichi Kawamura, J.J. L’Heureux , Sandra Lauterbach, Brant LaValla, Ana Medina, Margaret Noble, Felicity Nove, Eric Oliver, Chris Otcasek, Mark Posey, Anastasia Samoylova, Kendra Spear, Spitz, Peter Sue, Susan Swihart, Lacey Terrell, Tim Townsley, and Jenny Wiener.
