    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Darren Waterston

Darren Waterston ('88)'s vast canvases combine pure atmosphere with bits of flora and fauna and chinoiserie silhouettes. His work is based on a deep understanding of the history of paint and the relationship between science, alchemy and the artistic process. A California native who lives in New York,Waterston admits that if he'd been slightly less interested in art, he could easily have become a naturalist or scientist.

He has had one-person exhibitions at the Fresno Museum of Art; Frist Center for Contemporary Art, Nashville; and Bellevue Museum, Washington. He was awarded the Richard Diebenkorn teaching fellowship, and St. Ann's press has published a monograph on his work. He is included in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Oakland Museum of Art; Orange County Museum of Art;
Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Portland Art Museum, OR, Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; and many other corporate and private collections.
