TAG Gallery Reception Saturday Evening For Three New Exhibits

TAG Gallery opened a new exhibition Tuesday featuring

artists Peter Kempson, Patricia Doede Klowden, and Gary Polonsky.

An opening

reception will be held this Saturday, June 22 from 5-8 pm.

The exhibit runs

through July 13. Known for his photo-realistic acrylic landscapes, Kempson has

been exploring a wide-range of subjects and new media for a little over a year.

His new works include “20th Century Modern” (pictured above).

It a large piece

celebrating modernist architects from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry.

Klowden’s current series, Sliced, continues her examination of the figure in

ceramic and bronze, with representational forms as well as abstractions that

invoke the figure without full representation, and ceramic vessels that

approach the physical body from a more intuitive perspective.

Polonsky’s latest

exhibition further explores large-scale food studies, focusing his most recent

work on classic American confections.

Working from real food while using

non-traditional canvases of balsawood, styrofoam, and wire mesh, Polonsky’s

three-dimensional works break the surface and effectively blur the line between

painting and sculpture.

TAG Gallery is located at 2525 Michigan Ave. D3

(Bergamot Station), Santa Monica.
