New works from Cherri Wood, David MacDowell, Armsrock & more…

New works from Cherri Wood, David MacDowell, Armsrock & more are now in and posted on our site.

David MacDowell is a new artist to our gallery coming to us from Chesapeake, VA of all places – his skill is unquestionable and his imagination is to be admired and cherished – just view the four new works inspired by everything from Disney’s mindwarping of America’s youth to the Breakfast Club to a glimpse inside Brad Pitt’s worst nightmare and more… one to watch and already showing in NYC at AdHocArt.

Armsrock, as mentioned here previously, will be showing with Elbow-Toe this December and these works are a lil’ preview of what’s to come. He has a HUGE year ahead – check the man’s upcoming exhibition schedule:

8th of may:”ROCKFACE D’ARM”together with D’Face

He’s also alligned with Black Rat Press and Wooster Collective issued their first book highlighting his works, complete with an introduction from none other than Swoon. Don’t sleep on Armsrock.

We’re also excited to annoucne a fresh new batch of works from MN based artist Cherri Wood. Gaining recognition and building heat via a big push from Opus Underground in the UK and her recent solo at Andenken Gallery in Denver, the time is now to get on board and grab a piece before the market heats up further. We’re excited to have these new works featured in “Intersections”, a special exhibtion co-curated by Thinkspace, Cypress College and Giant Robot taking place on March 12th in Orange County at the Cypress College Gallery. Hailing from MN, her works are glimpses into the haunted fairy tale world that are her imagination.

* Please know this is by no means a complete listing of all the art happenings in LA, nor do we try to attempt to be that, as there are great sources like the LA Weekly and many others for that. We strive to direct you towards exhibits that we plan to check out ourselves. Most shows we suggest fall within the realm commonly referred to as lowbrow, pop surrealism, outsider, new contemporary, etc. Enjoy!

It is always best to contact the gallery directly or visit their website to confirm all listings and to ask about possible cover charges or other restrictions.
