Edward Cella Art+ Architecture presents a special offering of rare and contemporary works celebrating the Los Angeles art scene. Presented against the backdrop of Pacific Standard Time, the exhibition is a timely offering of intimate drawings, prints, ephemera, photography, and ceramics with the collector in mind.
LA Connected includes seminal pieces of historic ephemera by Edward Ruscha, Mason Williams, and Billy Al Bengston. A transcendent pastel drawing by Peter Alexander adjoins encaustic paintings by Charles Fine from a prominent collection, and an early print Laddie John Dill which in total represent fine examples of some of the city’s most influential artists. The city’s iconic architecture is recognized with a rare, vintage blueprint of Welton Becket’s iconic Capitol Record building and a classic image of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Sturges House.
Continuing this legacy, the exhibition presents recent works by Deborah Aschheim, Mary Heebner, Brian Hollister, Brad Miller, R. Nelson Parrish, Lucas Reiner, Alex Slade, and Joni Sternbach that offer insights into light, energy and architecture that distinguish the iconography of Los Angeles.
